You will need to select the “Use the following IP address” bullet and populate these fields. The information required for these fields should be provided to you by Bell MTS Customer Care.

  • IP Address: Populate the field with one of the usable IP addresses.
  • Subnet Mask: Populate this field with subnet mask that matches your Framed Route size.
  • Default Gateway: Populate this field with the default gateway address of your Framed Route address block.
  • Preferred DNS: Populate this field with the LAN Address for your Gateway (Default 192.168.100.254).
  • Alternate DNS: This field can be left blank with Framed Route service.

Determining Your Subnet Mask

Look at the Framed Route address block provided by Bell MTS (Example:205.200.237.0/29).

  • If your address block ends in /27 your subnet mask is 255.255.255.224.
  • If your address block ends in /28 your subnet mask is 255.255.255.240.
  • If your address block ends in /29 your subnet mask is 255.255.255.248.
Determining Your Default Gateway
  1. Take the Framed Route address block provided by Bell MTS (Example:205.200.237.0/29).
  2. Drop the /27, /28, or /29, Leaving 205.200.237.0.
  3. Increment the last number by 1, Your Default Gateway would be: 205.200.237.1.

Note:

This address has been pre-programmed into your Bell MTS Gateway to allow communication with the Framed Route.

Determining Your First Usable IP Address
  1. Take the Framed Route address block provided by Bell MTS (Example:205.200.237.0/29).
  2. Drop the /27, /28, or /29, Leaving 205.200.237.0.
  • If you have a /27, 205.200.237.2 would be the first of 29 usable addresses.
  • If you have a /28, 205.200.237.2 would be the first of 13 usable addresses.
  • If you have a /29, 205.200.237.2 would be the first of 5 usable addresses.
DNS Server

With Framed Route service the LAN IP address of your Gateway is the DNS Server.

By default this should be: 192.168.100.254.
