Retain local IP scheme when moving to Virgin Media

Hi there,

I want to know if I can retain my local IP scheme when I move over to VM - I have a normal private IP scheme that my work have setup with a VPN for work from Home days - they want to make sure that I am not going to change the addresses - I know that my Public IP address will change when I move over - they are fine with this.

I have had various providers - none of which was a problem for retaining local IP scheme but a colleague has just suggested to me that I should not make this assumption with VM.

Thanks in advance.

Peter.

You will be ok if you use your own router or if the addresses are 192.168.0.x. The Hub 3 if elegy in router mode only lets you use this class C address. So if you have 10.x.x.x or 172.x.x.x addresses you must use your own router,

Re: Retain local IP scheme when moving to Virgin Media

Thanks for that.

So to clarify my understanding?

 

1. I cannot change the local private IP scheme on the Hub 3?

2. I can use the Hub 3 as a modem only with another router sitting behind it?

3. Am I able to use a local subnet of 255.255.0.0 to give me access to all the 192.168.x.x IP addresses?

Regards.

Re: Retain local IP scheme when moving to Virgin Media

1 I believe so, I use my own router

2 Yes

3 No 192.168.x.x is a class C address and must have the first 3 of the sub net mask of 255, the last one is normally 0 to give the full range 254 available nodes. The last one can only be 0,128,192,224, 240,248,252.
