I have cable and am using an sb5101 modem and an wndr3700 v2 router. I have tried changing the router mac address with no luck. Also the ip address is dynamic not static verified by bigpond.how to change my ip address.
I moved to a new house last week, and i have comcast internet which works on cable lines.i have them for years. anyways, i got my own motorola sb5101 modem, which i use for a while now.the problem is that in the new house the modem only works when it is connected to a computer with windows xp, it DOES NOT work on windows vista or 7,also, when i connect my router into it, it does not work either.when i connect it to windows 7 64-bit, it says "unidentified network" and "no internet access" but it works perfectly fine on windows xp 32 bit. (i have 2 xp's and 3 windows 7's)
I have a Motorola surfboard sb5101. Provider is comcast.I have never had any problem with my equipment until now. Here is whats going on. I bought a used sb5101 a week ago so that I would not have to pay the rental fee anymore. Comcast activated it, and it worked fine for a week or two. The other night I got disconnected from XBOX live randomly in the middle of a game. Thought maybe just a hickup, no biggie. Well it happened 3 more times in a few hours, then again the next day.So thinking maybe this used modem is bad, I plugged back in the rental from comcast which I still had. Worked fine for a while, then the same thing, random dissconnects after 10 min, 30 min, 2 hrs into a game...etcOn both modems, the 1st and 4th green light are solid, the 2nd and 3rd green light are flashing when the connection from LIVE drops.So I'm starting to think know that neither of the modems are bad. I then try going directly to the modem instead of the router, never had any problems with the router but figured I try.I even went into the attic and got rid of the 4 way splitter that feeds cable into all the bedrooms and put in a 2 way instead hooking up only the cable line im using for xbox. Thought maybe the signal is getting degraded to bad, eventhough never had a problem before.So now I'm practically hooked up right to the line coming off the street, ethernet cord plugged directly into the modem, no router. Still dropping connections randomly with same 2nd and 3rd light flashing.The connection needs to be completely stable for multiple hours.Also, I called comcast when I had to reactivate the rental modem, so they did refreshed that modem and reactivate it, but still had the disconnects the next day.
I used to have a Thomson st-330 USB modem for my ADSL network. When I wanted to change my IP i just disconnected and reconnected a dial up connection that does the job instantly! (a wan miniport + a batch file to disconnect/recoannect with my password and username)Few days ago i bought a new modem/router (TP-LINK TS-W8951NS)Before that all I knew was that if I wanna change the ip address (if I have a router) was a batch file with commands ipconfig /release/renew.I now know that this changes the ip of my PC not the global IP! So how would I change it without restarting the router? (When i change something in my router interface page (PVC1.2.3....etc) my IP changed instantlybut how do I do this without accessing the router, like commands and a batch file etc? I just found out that my global IP changed on its own after like 30-60 min :S why is that! and to do so manually???
we were happily getting along with our RCN cable Motorola modem and DLink wireless 655 until the last couple of weeks. The internet would intermittently not be available, without warning. First couple of times we power cycled the modem and router, and it worked, but then stopped being available altogether. I got some support from RCN, the cable provider (they own the modem and it's old, so naturally that was my first thought). I now have a new modem and the situation is exactly the same. The error message that I get is that the IP address for the network cannot be found.
I got internet access by bypassing the router, connecting the modem directly to my (Windows XP) PC, releasing and renewing the IP address, and power cycling the modem. However, the internet still intermittently shuts down, and of course turning off the computer necessitates the whole procedure again. And now we have no wireless. Should we assume it's the router, and a new one would solve our problem? Of do we just need to reset the IP address of the router?
Reset to factory defaults. DHCP turned on. Status page shows black for router IP, gateway, and DNS addresses. Powered router+cable modem on/off multiple times already. I also have another wifi router (WRT120N) and it works fine.
Pretty simple connection. Just a ethernet cable between the cable modem and E1200 internet port (Cable modem <---> E1200)
Attempting to get EA6500 working with TWC Motorola Surfboard SBV5220 modem, which has been working just fine for the last 2 years with a Linksys E3000 router. DHCP client in the EA6500 either doesn't ask for an IP address from the cable modem or the modem just isn't supplying one. With the E3000, you could see the IP address assigned by the cable modem and the primary and secondary DNS server addresses provided, and if the DHCP request didn't work, these addresses would be all zeroes. But, with the EA6500, I can't find an equivalent screen that shows these assignments, or zeroes when the DHCP request fails.
I am a Rogers Customer (Canadian isp) whch uses DHCP IP address. My set up is like so: SMCD3GN2 Modem with gateway and wireless mode disabled. (i'm using it as a pure modem) 2 of its 4 ports are active, one is connected to my pc directly and the other is conencted to a d-link router. The router is connected to 4 other pc's + some wireless devices. What I want to do is change my IP address ( the pc with the direct connection ) in windows 7. I can effectively do this by simply shutting the modem off for about 30 seconds. Luckily my isp pretty much continuously assigns me a new IP address every time I do this.
The issue is I don't want to disrupt my entire network ( the router ) With windows XP I used to be able to go into cmd and ipconfig/release, then go to my ipv4 settings and set a custom spam ip address/subnet and then go back to automatic and then ipconfig/renew and voila I would have a new IP address. With windows 7 I have no luck. I have tried spoofing/changing my mac address of my network card/adapter and it results in my modem not assigning me an IP address. Is there any efficient way to change my DHCP IP address in windows 7 without disrupting my entire network?
My X2000 modem connect only with small speeds Kbps, it's very weak than Linksys WAG54GP2 MBPS. If I put laptop near the modem speed doesn't change.Only change occurs when I change the channel. But it speed down after a while.I set, N connection, security is WPA-personal, tried some different channel, connection 20-40mhz, update the firmware (there is no problem with laptop, with another modem I can connect with 150kb/s speed) And, if I choose auto setup, security change to WPA, If I'm not wrong.
I am having 5 IP addresses assigned to me. I have one commercial/business modem/gateway/router. If I want to have the advantage of separate lines (go with this for now) how else can the gateway do it other than simply passing the IP directly through, no router function, basically a modem/switch, everything else not there.
there could be complications, but it appears the WPM300N is 'bad'?my wife's computer (XP SP3) recently started freezing at random times. Once while surfing she got a BSOD. The last few days it had gotten much worse, sometimes the freeze occuring during the boot process, and again at random points.
What I tried was determing all new s/w installs and deleting them still didn't fix the problem. Next I used some Norton Ghost back-ups restoration from the time period she had the freezes... still was freezing. Next an image from long ago and it still froze. Got me thinking it was h/w related. She has a wireless mouse and keyboard. Put in wired units, still froze.
A few days ago my router died. It couldn't get a WAN IP Address from the ISP's cable modem. ISP verified the modem was working by having me attach directly to it one of my wired computers. This router was a new (2 months old) ASUS RT-N56U. I put back my old LinkSys WRT600N. In doing so I had to change the passphrase. This turned out to be a big assist to me determining what went wrong.
On each of the restores of an image, the system never froze, not until I connected to the router by giving the proper passphrase, but usually after that. When it happened (I did multiple image restores) when I was in Safe Mode with Network as it was connecting, the implication was clear it was the WMP300N.
As luck would have it, I had another card taken out of my old computer. Put that card in and so far, he computer has NOT frozen up. I've restored all the deleted items and Windows Updates and all other Updates (Norton ISS, Flash, Adobe) and it is running fine.
I can't get a new IP from my ISP when my Cable modem router(EPC3925) is set to router mode, i have tried factory restore, unplugged etc..but still no luck. It changes each time i reset it when i set it to bridged only mode but then i won't be able to connect other devices to it since it doesn't uses DHCP in bridged only mode. It changes back to the IP i had when i set it to router mode. I don't want to change my router settings to bridged only because it would disconnect the other devices in my house. Why my ISP assigns the same IP address when it's set to router mode but assigns different IPs when it's set to bridged only, how is this possible ?
I'm switching to cable internet service instead of DSL. My Netgear router will not work with my cable modem; but it works like a charm with my DSL modem. Is it a problem with the router setup? Good thing I still have the DSL service.
I have a TP-Link device TL-WR340G Wifi Device. I connect a PC through one of the LAN ports.Mow my WiFi router's MAC address has not been registered at my ISP system. I need to find a way to 'change' my Routers MAC address to another MAC address. The cloning doesn't work. I need to change my Router's LAN MAC address.

How to change my new belkin router's mac address to the old ITI router's mac which i have saved in my laptop.
I need to connect to my work PC remotely through VPN, but the address of my home router (Verizon Fios) conflicts with my work address. IT guy at work is clueless, so I am stuck - been trying with him for months and this is his solution. I need to change my address on my personal router, Westell brand, but I am having no luck. I have been told to use:
When I tried that, each time I press a key in the password field, it enter 4 characters... I have never seen anything like that. Honestly, I'm a graphic designer and am also clueless on networking issues.
How come my IP address does not change when i'm using my router.... (TP-link WR340G)But when i connect my DSL directly to my computer it my IP can be changed..... and when i put back my router my IP address is the same.
How to reset my WRT120N Router, It was originally set up using a PC, I am now on a MAC but my husband has a PC Netbook. In our previous location, we were all able to access the internet without any trouble. I have tried going into the router various ways and have not been successful. One path was using the CD that came with the router
I have a 2wire Modem connected to a Cisco Wireless N Router, that is connected to another Cisco Wireless N Router. All was working well. In my absence sbc (AT&T) changed the pass word of the 2wire Modem. The 2wire has stoped communication with the Cisco Wireless N Routers. I connected am Ethernet wire to one of the ports of the 2wire, and connected it to the 2nd Cisco Wireless N Router. The signal gets to the 2nd Cisco Router. However, when I attempt to access the Internet on the CPU connected to the 2 Cisco Router, I get an error Message saying that there is a problem with the Modem and/or Router. On the available Networks selection screen I can see the connections that I want. The selection info shows connected. But when I try to connect, the I can't.
I have a new Linksys E2100 that was working well with an old Verizon modem. Then recently that modem gave up the ghost and I was issued another one (Westel Model 6100G). I have no problems with internet connectivity when connecting directly from my harddrive to the Verizon modem. I am also not having trouble connecting to the Linksys routher as I am able to see my wireless connection with no problem. However, when I try to set up the connnection with the E2100 in the loop (yes, it's connected correctly) I no longer have internet access.I tried de-installing and re-installing the Linksys software (thinking maybe there was some new configuration that would be auto-detected with a new set-up), but this didn't work. I suspect that if the problem is with my Linksys router and not with my Verizon modem that there might be something that could be done to reconfigure something manually but I do not know enough about connections and wireless systems to trust myself not to mess something up.
