In parting Asus should be asked and if they can't support this, return it and stick with your working router.
I've just purchased an Asus RT-N66U router and am trying to configure my multiple IP addresses (I have a block of 8, or rather 5 usable IPs)
On my previous router I ran the following:
:ip ipadd intf=LocalNetwork addr=IP4/29 addroute=enabled
:ip ipadd intf=LocalNetwork addr=IP3/29 addroute=enabled
:ip ipadd intf=LocalNetwork addr=IP2/29 addroute=enabled
:ip ipadd intf=LocalNetwork addr=IP1/29 addroute=enabled
:ip ipadd intf=LocalNetwork addr=IP0/29 addroute=enabled
:ip ipadd intf=LocalNetwork addr=IP9/29 addroute=enabled
:nat mapadd intf=Static outside_addr IP4 weight 1 index=0
:nat mapadd intf=Static outside_addr=IP9 inside_addr=192.168.1.50 weight=120 access_list IP9
:nat mapadd intf=Static outside_addr=IP9 inside_addr=192.168.1.50 weight=120 access_list 192.168.1.50
:nat mapadd intf=Static outside_addr=IP0 inside_addr=192.168.1.51 weight=120 access_list IP0
:nat mapadd intf=Static outside_addr=IP0 inside_addr=192.168.1.51 weight=120 access_list 192.168.1.51
:nat mapadd intf=Static outside_addr=IP1 inside_addr=192.168.1.52 weight=120 access_list IP1
:nat mapadd intf=Static outside_addr=IP1 inside_addr=192.168.1.52 weight=120 access_list 192.168.1.52
:nat mapadd intf=Static outside_addr=IP2 inside_addr=192.168.1.53 weight=120 access_list IP2
:nat mapadd intf=Static outside_addr=IP2 inside_addr=192.168.1.53 weight=120 access_list 192.168.1.53
:nat mapadd intf=Static outside_addr=IP3 inside_addr=192.168.1.54 weight=120 access_list IP3
:nat mapadd intf=Static outside_addr=IP3 inside_addr=192.168.1.54 weight=120 access_list 192.168.1.54
:service system ipdelete name=TELNET ip=184.108.40.206
Someone helped me configure it, and honestly I don't know where to start in writing that for the new router, or if it's even required?
Has anyone used one of the Asus routers (firmware version 220.127.116.11.374_979-gbc8961e) and successfully managed to configure multiple WAN IP addresses? I was hoping there would be something in the control panel, but I can't find anything.
Why not ask David at http://forums.digitalspy.co.uk/showthread.php?p=70983219#post70983219 ?
Also I think I see a similar/same question at http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/forums/1/tech-helproom/4455413/hi-ive-just-purchased-an-asus-rt-n66u-router-and-am-trying-to-configure-my-multiple-ip-addresses/
Since you have that and David claims he did that, you have no less than 3 options (ASUS support.)
Out of curiosity why buy a new router when you have a working one?
And why keep one that doesn't work or have support for you?
Yes, I wrote router code (the code that's inside routers) a long time ago but such setups are maintained by IT staffers (or me if paid to do so) which can cause trouble if folk can't get support or don't want to pay for such. I didn't find a ready reference to cure your issue or write a new script so let's let David who claims they did this cure this one?
Thank you for the reply, I purchased a new router since I've just moved from ADSL to a fiber connection and my old Thomson router wasn't compatible. I'm hoping I can get the new Asus router because it gets fantastic reviews and was actually rather expensive...
I would be happy to pay for help with this, very happy to pay for help, as I did previously for the above code.
