Note: The first and last IP of a series are NOT usable and the first  
usable IP is normally set up for the router.
The 1st IP is the network address. The last IP is the broadcast address.

Each customer will be given their own unique IP block necessary to configure their own network. This unique IP information will be supplied by their Account Manager.

The below is only an EXAMPLE, do NOT use its IPs, instead, use those IP numbers that come from your Account Manager.

Your Account Manager should give you all the following information.

Dear Customer:

Your IP block is 205.177.54.32/28
