Configure your private router

Do you have your own router which you would like to manage your Internet service ? If so, follow these steps to connect your own router.

Be carreful: TV Box and Wi-Fi Booster will not work behind your own router.

Proximus does not deal with the connection of your own router. We therefore only recommend these steps if you already have some prior knowledge of setting up a network.

  1. Connect your private router via the LAN output (1 of the 4 ports) of the b-box 3 / 3V+ to the WAN input of the private router.
  2. Change the LAN IP settings of your private router so broadcast domain is different from b-box 3 / 3V+ (192.168.1.1/24)
  3. Establish WAN connection on your router through PPPoE session by using username and password of your Internet line.
  1. Connect to MyProximusOpens a new window on the web.

  6. Connect your private router via the LAN1 output (labeled Bridge) of the Internet Box to the WAN input of the private router.

Specific points to bear in mind
  • You create two separate networks. One on the b-box 3 / Internet Box and one on your own router. The devices connected to one network cannot "see" the other devices on the other network (e.g. wireless printers).
  • It’s highly recommended to switch off Wi-Fi on b-box 3 and Internet Box and reconnect all your devices behind your router.
  • Don't forget: TV Box and Wi-Fi Booster won’t work behind private router.

Tip: Consult the user manual of your private router for advanced settings. Also take a look on the Proximus forum (in French or Dutch), where our community may be able to help you.
