We have signed up for Orcon Genius and have received the equipment.   Now waiting for switchover which we have been told should be 9 August (Tuesday).

Our home wireless network has approx 8 devices on it (Vista PC, Mac laptop, Tivo, ipad, 2 smartphones, GoFlex NAS, TV) and each belongs to the workgroup and has a fixed address/subnet to allow filesharing/ mapping of network drives.

Network settings in our old DynaLink router were straightforward and I received information from Telecom for the Thomson router to change the configuration file but how are these settings located in the Genius?  Would someone add a couple of screenshots/ links as we have been unable to locate any.

The User Manual has a page 'How to drive Orcon Genius manually' but it basically says 'don't alter these settings if you know what's good for you'!! and the 2 screenshots of the settings page are not at all helpful.
