Linksys AM200 - invalid IP fubar
Just a small note for anyone who's looking to use an ADSL modem for their broadband connection and needs to use it with a static IP (like Be* Broadband).
DO NOT get a Linksys AM200 Annex A modem..
It seems that despite it being reported back in January of this year that nobody has corrected the issue of IP's being reported as invalid if the first IP block doesn't have 3 digits in it.
Yup... an IP of 10.x.x.x will not work whereas something like 192.x.x.x will be accepted. Same with the gateway and DNS settings.
Strikes me this n00b error extreme and just highlights why I avoid Linksys like the plague.. Idiots!
