In this article I will show you how to configure the Vigor 2200(E) router for use with MXStream. It will take about 5 minutes ....

The Vigor 2200(E) is very suitable for a SOHO network. Just hook those computers to the Vigor and he will handle dial-up-networking to MXStream, DHCP, etc.! Ideal if you ask me,... and the current price of this unit is about 200 Euro (app. $220).

Router resellers: You want your router on this website too? Then please feel free to contact me.

Vigor 2200E box content

For the description on this page we only need the Ethernet cable (D), powersupply (F) and router (G).

Note: it might be useful if you save or print this webpage right now, since you will be without Internet for a few minutes when connecting the router.

Let's take a look at the LED's on the front-side of the router.

A

ACT
The router is powered and the router-software is running OK.

B

USE
4 LED's indicating the bandwidth used.

C

WAN
Indicates that the ADSL/Cablemodem is Connected. Flashes at data transfer.

D

Broadband
Indicates ADSL/Cable connection to your provider.

E

LAN P1
Port 1 is connected (orange = 10Mbps, green = 100Mbps), blinks while transferring data.

F

LAN P2
Port 2 is connected (orange = 10Mbps, green = 100Mbps), blinks while transferring data.

G

2. Connecting the router

Fairly simple, but anyway .... :

  • Plug the powersupply in the power-outlet

  • Connect the powersupply to the router (POWER)
    The WAN Led will briefly flash once, ACT Led remains blinking.

  • Connect the PC(s) to the routerport(s) (P1 ... P4)
    Use standard UTP (preferable CAT5) cable for this. The led (Px) will be lit on active connection between router and PC-network-card. Most network-card (NIC's) have a similar led which should get lit too.

  • Connect the MXStream (Alcatel) Ethernet-modem to the router
    Plug the supplied cable (a standard UTP network-cable) in to the WAN port connector of the router, and the other end of the Ethernet-cable into the "10Base T/MDI-X" connector of the Alcatel Ethernet modem (for details see PSTN and ISDN). The led on the backside of the Alcatel and the Vigor will lit (both devices should be switched on). The WAN Led of the Vigor will also lit.

Configuring the router

Start a webbrowser, for example Internet Explorer, on your PC and open address 192.168.1.1, a dialog appears asking for a "User name" and "Password", the default values are: "Username" = "admin" and "Password" remains empty (so don't enter anything here).

Vigor 2200E - Open the webconfiguratorVigor 2200E - Admin login


The "Setup Main Menu" window opens.
Click "LAN TCP/IP and DHCP Setup" and copy these settings:

Vigor 2200E - LAN TCP/IP and DHCP Setup for use with MXStream

Click the "OK" button to apply the changes. The router might want to reboot - comply! If the router does not seem to need a reboot, click "<< Main Menu" to return to the main menu.

In the "Setup Main Menu" click the option "Internet Access Setup", the next window will ask you what Internet Access Mode you wish to use. Select "PPTP". In the now appearing window you can alter PPTP settings; copy these:

Vigor 2200E - PPTP dialup settings for MXStream

Notes:

Variable Value Notes
PPTP Link
Enable
PPTP is used by KPN for VPN
PPTP Server IP Address
10.0.0.138
Address of the Alcatel modem, as KPN uses it
ISP Name
HCCNET
Here you can enter any name you like ...
Username
blabla
Enter your username here as provided by your ISP (as used for ADSL dialup).
Password
*********
Enter your password here as provided by your ISP (as used for ADSL dialup).
PPP Authentication
PAP only
 
Idle Time-out
7200
The Vigor will disconnect after an idle time of 7200 seconds (2 hours).
TIP: Set this to "-1" if you have the most recent firmware, this way the router tries to stay connected for ever (thanks to Michiel for this tip!).
Fixed IP
NO
Dynamic.
Fixed IP Address
[empty]
Dynamic.
LAN2/WAN IP
obtain
or
specify
You can select "Specify an IP address", as done by KPN. It appears however that "Obtain an IP address automatically" will work by default as well. That's because the default DHCP mode of the Alcatel modem is set to "Auto".
IP Address
10.0.0.150
See KPN docs.
Subnet Mask
255.255.255.0
See KPN docs.

Click the "OK" button to apply the changes. The router might want to reboot - comply! If the router does not seem to need a reboot, click "<< Main Menu" to return to the main menu.

You're now done configuring your router, but still have to configure the PC's (Window 2000/XP, Windows 95, 98, and ME).

After doing so, start, for example, Internet Explorer, and open a nice website, for example http://www.weethet.nl/english/welcome. You will notice the flashing of the LED's of the router, particular WAN and Broadband will Flash. The Broadband led indicates a successful dialup.

If Broadband does not light up, you might have made a type at the Username or Password fields, check them!
