Trying to add a router to my internet se

By jingernut ·
Hi There

I hope you can help, I am trying to introduce a router to my ASDL setup but am running into problems. I have an ethernet ASDL modem and have tried to set it up in both PPPoE mode and DHCP mode but I still cannot connect to the net. If I take the router out of the loop, I can connect OK. I have already had the router replaced once so I do not think this could be the cause. I have made sure that may network card is set to search automatically, enabled the DHCP service in the router config, I have tried setting it to both settings but no joy. It may be a config setting that I am unaware of. The router is an AWL700.BT internet is my provider

Please can you help, I would really appreciate it

Thanks

Martin

"If I take the router out of the loop, I can connect OK" --> Did you uninstall the PPoE software from your computer?

When the router behaves as the PPoE server, you need to uninstall the software from your computer.

You also need to make sure the router is installed correctly. DNS and your specific account (usually e-mail account name) and password need to be input into most of these routers.

A sure way to configure your router is to disable it's DHCP function and go with a static route. In your network connections properties page, TCP/IP choose specifiy an IP address. Create an IP address such as 192.168.2.10, submask 255.255.255.0 and the gateway will be your routers IP address. DNS IP is your ISP's DNS IP.

Also, configure your browser according to the routers manual [e.g] clear all boxes in the connection/LAN properties sheet.

If using DHCP on your router, problems with connecting to the internet are with with your browser connection settings than the NIC, TCP/IP and router settings. Again, check the router's owners manual to make sure your browser is configured properly to use the router.

A lot of times ADSL and other 'modems' learn the MAC address of the NIC that has been attached to it. It sounds as if this is the case with your modem. Sometimes this relationship can be reset simply by unplugging the modem for a couple of minutes, though a lot of ISP's are using modems that have to be manually reconfigured either by their techs or visiting their website. They do this so that people don't sign up for a single system access then install their own router to provide multiple system access. Another option is if your router supports MAC spoofing. Then you would obtain your system's MAC address and program the router to spoof this MAC check your router documentation to see if this is supported and how to program it. If that fails or isn't supported then contact ISP and inquire as to retraining the modem

Thanks for all you answers but still no joy. I have a dlink DSL 300g+, I think when you try to add a router to this setup it is not straightforward as it should be. The dlink device needs to become a bridge for the router but I am not sure how to dothis. I would be very grateful if somebody could give me an idea of how I can make the dlink a bridge device from my new router.

Thank for your help

Martin
