Some quick questions..

Good morning.

I'm looking at the Norton Core and have a couple of questions.  I currently have Verizon FIOS.  I don't use their modem/router combo, but instead use my own router plugged via ethernet directly into the the ONT.  My questions:

1.  Will Norton Core work this way too, by going directly from the ONT into the Core via ethernet and have it serve as both modem and router?

2.  Can you assign IP address to the Core?  In other words, can i make the default IP of the Core 10.0.0.x or 192.168.1.x or whatever IP configuration I'd like?

Thanks.

Re: Some quick questions..

Hello wyzards-ghost Answering your questions:

1- YES!! You would run your ONT Ethernet directly to the WAN port on the Core (globe icon in blue). Since the ONT is doing the routing you will still get the message "Core is connected to another device routing traffic" which in your case is NORMAL. Setup will continue as it should from that point forward.

2- NO!! The internal IP of Core is hard coded and cannot be changed. Your visible IP address will be as assigned by FIOS externally, and the internal IP on core will remain 176.16.0.1. The ability is said to be present during setup, IF, FIOS has assigned you a "static IP" for use on the ONT. I personally have asked for proof this is the case having yet to receive documentation for it. And have not personally had that setup, and am on FIOS myself, with coax and triple play it isn't applicable to my setup. Core DOES provide internal "IP reservation".

Hope this answers your questions adequately.

Cheers

Re: Some quick questions..

I have a server at up in my mix. That is currently handing out DHCP and DNS. That will remain the same with the core?

Re: Some quick questions..

As long as the server is connected to the core, and you have the clients DHCP and DNS settings pointing to the Server, instead of set to automatic,  things should work out just fine.

Re: Some quick questions..

Does it have to be directly connected to the Core or can it be through a switch?

Re: Some quick questions..

A switch would be fine. As long as all devices are behind the core, and can see each other you should be OK.
