I see a make for the router but not for the rest of the gear. Since all setups failed, start with updating the firmware of the new router. To me this sounds like the Ethernet cable was a bum one from router to cable modem+routerm
Ok, running into some issues and I am by far not the tech-iest individual so any help here is greatly appreciated!
Heres the story so far; I have been using a Netgear modem/router combination (Model CG4500BD). It has worked great and no issues to report when it is used as a standalone and no issues with my ISP. Today I purchased an Asus router (Model RT-AC1900P). I followed the instructions on connecting the router to the modem/router. I went through the initial setup, including creating names and passwords for the new networks from the router. The networks are discoverable however when I sign into them there is no internet connection, with an error saying internet is not available. I was told to enable "bridge mode" on the modem/router, which I did, however this made no difference and still no internet connection. I also disabled the wi-fi on the router modem, still nothing. I had to reset the modem/router box to factory defaults to restore my connection after turning on bridge mode. I am at a loss and back to square one. I tried power cycling both devices after trying anything new.
To be clear here is how I had connected everything;
-Co-ax cable into modem/router (from wall)
-ethernet into modem/router LAN port (from wall)
-power for modem/router
-ethernet from modem/router LAN port into router WAN port
-power for modem router
When I access the ASUS router support page and attempt to find my connection, it is unable to detect any connection. I chose the correct option to discover (DHCP client) but nothing seems to work. Obviously kinda newbie on this stuff and would love some help! I purchased this router for the purposes of setting up a VPN and would be bummed if it doesn't work with my modem/router.
Thanks in advance!
