Hi folks,


Server --> Router --> Modem --> ISP

The connection to Internet is running fixed/static IP. I have domain registered. I suspect the router which was supplied and presetup by ISP on loan, has been locked by ISP. The internel IP of the server is IP address, LAN, on the router is locked by ISP. Typing on browser requested login and password. Typing admin login and password did not work.

Now I'm prepared to build my own gateway including firewall on an old PII box. The new connection will be;
Server --> Gateway --> Modem --> ISP

The router will be removed for other use, not necessary going through 2 gateway.

Please advise what information are needed from ISP to setup my own gateway. What is the reason for ISP to lock IP address on the router which is on my LAN.
