Many lock onto the MAC address or require the usual power off the modem, move cable, power up modem to work.
Some modems have routers which we then use our router as a WAP.
I can't see which modem make/model so I can't look into this more.
Hey guys, I recently moved to a new home and I'm trying to set up my router to the new internet connection and get the wifi going but for the life of me I cant get it set up. The internet connection itself is fine, from modem to pc.
Once I have the modem in the mix,it gets no/limited connectivity and cannot reach the setups. I have tried the classic 192.168.2.1 and 192.168.1.1 and about 5 other variations, along with 'http://router'. My router is a Belkin N300 Wireless N Router.
If I use a command prompt and do 'ipconfig', there is no ip address beside 'gateway default' once the router is connected. I have reset my router to factory settings. I've tried using a static ip address for my computer [though not sure if i did it correctly]. My DHCP is enabled.
I've been at it for several hours and I'm sorta at my wit's end. Please help!:)
