Netgear DG834GU

This router is the easiest router to set up Local Router on!
  1. Go the the web interface of your router (in your browser, enter the address 10.0.0.2)
  2. Enter the username and password (default is admin and admin)
  3. Click the Basic Settings link on the left of the page.
  4. Ensure that your login details correspond to your INTERNATIONAL account.
  5. Scroll down to PPPoE Session 2
  6. Enter the username and password for  your LOCAL ONLY account.
  7. Click apply.
  8. Restart your router.
Note that you have to go to http://10.0.0.2/setup.cgi?todo=debug in your web browser in order to enable telnet before you can continue. You will have to do this everytime the router is restarted.

Windows
  1. Download the localrouter-win-netgear.txt file from the downloads page.
  2. Download the localrouter-win.zip file from the downloads page.
  3. Unzip the zip archive into the same folder as the localrouter-win-netgear.txt file.
  4. Run localrouter-win-netgear.bat.
Everytime the router is restarted or a connection is dropped, you will have to open http://10.0.0.2/setup.cgi?todo=debug in your web browser, and then run localrouter-win-netgear.bat.

Linux

Setting up Local Router
  1. Download the setup file into an empty directory on your hard drive
  2. Open the setup file with a text editor (in Ubuntu, we recommend gedit)
  3. Replace <password> with your router's login password.  Update the IP address, login user, and interface if necessary.
  4. Save changes and exit gedit.
  5. Open a terminal (in ubuntu, hit Alt+F2, type in gnome-terminal, hit enter)
  6. Install the only dependency, expect [ sudo apt-get install expect ]
  7. Change to the directory in which you saved the file [ cd '<directory where you saved the file>' ]
  8. Make the setup file executable [ chmod a+x generic-linux.sh ]
  9. Run the setup file [ ./generic-linux.sh ]
  10. Copy this file into a convenient directory (such as your desktop)
  11. Log into the web interface, and find your router's routing table.  If the routing table has more then 10 or so entries, then Local Router has executed successfully.  Your web traffic is now being split over two connections! :)

Using Local Router

This part will already have been executed once when you set up Local Router.
  1. Double click localrouter.sh
  2. Click "Run in terminal"
  3. Its usual for the script to take around a minute to execute.  When it has finished, the terminal window will close.

This script needs to be run whenever your router is restarted, or sometimes if a connection is dropped.  Check the routing table regularly.  If you only have a few entries, you need to rerun localrouter.sh.
