ADSL, VPI, VCI and other setting needed.

I'm making the change from a ADSL USB modem to a 4 port Addon ADSL router, it seems that I need to find out from PlusNet the following settings.
Can anybody point me where to find them, or tell me them and any others I might need to know, with as least jargon as possible please.
VPI
VCI
Static IP address
Subnet mask
Gateway
PPP service name.
How some of you guys do this sort of thing for a living and keep sane is beyond me
Many thanks

Forgot to mention I will be networking a XP, a ME and an old Cyrix machine.

VPI = 0
VCI = 38
Static IP address = 212.159.9.131 (Yours)
Subnet mask = 255.255.255.0 (Normally)
Gateway = (Your router IP address, try 192.168.0.1)
PPP service name. = Not Sure

Subnet mask should be 255.255.255.255.

PPP servcie name can be anything - I sugest PlusNet to keep things simple.

The gateway is undetermined until you login. PlusNet have 3 Gateway addresses, which is chosen based on the load of the other gateways at login.

As such, Statis IP, Subnet mask and gatway can usualy be left blank, and they will be detected and used at login time.

Phil,

My subnet is 255.255.255.0 , this was determined by my router with out any intervention on my part. Is this not correct?

Are you sure you are not looking at teh LAN subnet mask there.

Many routers do not display the subnet mask for the WAN port. It should be 255.255.255.255 when you are assigned a single static IP address. This can be found in Connection Settings -> Static IP section of the portal.

If you have multple IPs, then you will have a subnet mask of 255.255.255.252 if you have 4 IPs, 255.255.255.248 if you have 8, and 255.255.255.240 if you ahve 16 IPs (business only)

My router has picked this subnet up 255.0.0.0

Thanks guys, I knew it would get too technical, The router came without a driver and claims not to need one.
Do I have to delete the wip tech connection first, as it keeps trying to connect?
Should I delete all connections and hope the connection wizard will solve it?
How come it's an simple job for anyone else?
My ZX81 was never a problem

Paul,

You shouldn't need to configure any connection settings on your pc, the router handles all connections to plus net. Your PC will connect to the router via an ethernet lan. No configuration is needed.

Phil,

Yes your correct, it's 255.255.255.255 and 255.255.255.0 on my LAN.
I'm still learning. Wink

By any chance does your LAN IP addres come in the 10.0.0.1 range?

When I connect up the router everything lights up ok, but the connect to wip tech dialog box comes up, which of course is no use, do you think I should remove the Dynamode adsl modem drivers and the wiptech connection
Apparently the router should connect me to the hppt://10.0.0.2 site but my browser does not respond.
Sorry to be a pain.

Sort of halfway there guys,
Cannot get access to the web just yet just 10.0.0.2
My static IP number always resets to 0,0,0,0. despite saving it to flash on the router.
Is my user name (paulwade) or (paulwade@plusdsl.net), it always resets to (paulwade) anyway.
Downloaded an auto up set file from the router maker and this also sets the static IP
number to 0,0,0,0. and the user name to paulwade

Yeh, it's working. One router firmware update and it sprung into life without me having to configure anything
