How to find out ISP configuration parameters
Hi,
Im trying to set up my new wireless netgear modem router, and before i start it says i need the following info to hand:
Virtual Path Identifier (VPI)/Virtual Channel Indentifier (VCI) parameters
Multiplexing Method
Host and Domain Names
ISP Login Name and Password (i know this!)
ISP Domain Name Server (DNS) Addresses (by doing an IPconfig/all i can get this)
Fixed or Static IP Address (by doing an IPconfig/all i can get this also)

my isp is orange. their website gives me no clue, is there any other way i can get this info?
cheers for any help

I applaud you for reading first! So many people obviously don't.

Nonetheless, I think that material is being overly pessimistic. The info you already know--ISP login and password and whether dynamic or static IP is almost all you need. The only other thing, I think, is whether you need PPPoE or something like that. Your current ipconfig /all or ISP's tech support should tell you that.

how do you connect to the modem/router, computer, phone line/dsl or coax cable/cable/rj-45 cable or usb?

hi guys,
ive got it up and running, the wizard didnt actually ask me for any of these settings except my ISP username and password.
only glitch i had was that my PC didnt detect the router until i disabled windows firewall, i guess the router will act as a fiewall now anyway so i can happily leave the windows one off.

it'll protect coming in but not going out.

i don't use the firewall but run behind a linksys 54 g wireless router.
