Question about Microsoft MN-700 Wireless Router

Setting up an MN700 Base Station with dialup

've hit a snag in trying to set up an MN700. My question relates to use of this unit with a desktop PC whose web access is dialup. I've tried to run the setup wizard, but it seems to require a separate modem rather than one that is internal to the PC. Should I have a switch (MN150 or equivalent) between the MN700 and the desktop PC to allow the MN700 to get both an input from the PC's NIC card simulating an external modem as well as a connection to the PC as if it were just a wired network computer? (This idea comes from the MS Network Guide.) I am sorry for the following long-winded explanation, but here's the background: I don't yet have broadband access, but I am going to move to a location where it will be available in several months. In the meantime, I'm using dialup to access the web. I checked to see if I could use the MN700 with dial- up on a desktop PC to communicate with a laptop by running the Network Guide on the MS web site. I was able to get a specific listing of required devices for such a setup (MN700 Base Station, MN150 10/100 Ethernet 5-Port Switch and MN720 NOtebook adapter). The diagram which accompanied the listing shows the MN700 connected to the MN150 and then to the desktop PC which then connects to the web via dialup. I can't see what the MN150 does in this conifiguration, but I also can't get the MN700 to recognize the PC with internal dialup modem as a modem. It seems that when I connect the ethernet cable from the PC's NIC card to the MN700's "to modem" port, it doesn't recognize that there is web connectivity on that ethernet cable. It also cannot "see" the desktop PC as a part of the network. The laptop communicates with the MN700 perfectly, but can't "see" the desktop PC. Please help me sort this out. Thanks

1. disable all ICS and all Proxy settings on all machines 2. connect the NIC to the MN700 using Port 1 3. set up the MN700 and the wireless connection 4. switch the MN700 to Bridging mode 5. enable ICS on the host computer The basic object is to have the working connection for your dial-up, then set up the base station as an access point only, then share the working connection via ICS through the NIC. Quite similar to having a switch box, but you're going wireless with it. You don't need to feed the MN-700 any of the normal info like your Internet Service Provider's IP/DNS, etc., because your computer already is sharing that info.

I have a vetch base of cs6619 and have ordered and received a new hand set Cs 6609 and can not get it registered although it has been charging foe 2 days. Please advise.


Sometimes you have to start from scratch. Remove the battery from all the portable units (including the one at the base station). Then start by setting up the base station.
You might try less drastic steps that are similar if you don't want to lose your directories.

CAN'T GET TO CHANGE DIALUP SETTING


To make sure settings are not set up to dial go to internet options and click on connections and make sure nothing is in that box. If there is something delete it. Once you check this go to network connections in control panel and make sure there are no dial up connections. If any just delete it. Hope this helps.

Forgot password to acess< and or its still default setting. could you tell me what the wireless 700 routers default password is


Restore Factory Default Settings When you restore factory default settings to the base station, you clear your Internet connection settings and any special base station configurations that you have established. After the restore is complete, you will need to reconfigure your base station settings or restore these settings from a backup file. You should restore the original factory default settings only under the following circumstances: O You are experiencing serious problems with your base station, and resetting the base station does not fix the problem. O You cannot remember your base station password. In this situation, you must restore the factory default settings by using the Restore button on the base station, and then use the default password admin to log on to the Base Station Management Tool. To restore factory default settings 1. Open the Base Station Management Tool, and then click Management. 2. On the Management menu, click Back Up and Restore Settings. 3. Under Restore factory default settings, click Restore Factory Default Settings. While the original factory default settings are being restored to the base station, the Power light on the base station turns orange. When the light is solid green, the settings have been restored. If you want to open the Base Station Management Tool after the settings have been restored, type admin as the password on the Logon page. Do not attempt to log on to the base station until the settings are restored and the Power light on the base station is solid green. After you restore the factory default settings to the base station, you should navigate to each page of the Base Station Management Tool and reestablish the network settings you want, or restore the base station settings by using a backup file. For information about creating a backup file of your settings, see the following section. Be sure to establish your unique base station password as soon as possible after restoring the factory default settings to prevent unauthorized users from logging on. For more information, see “Change the Base Station Password.” please rate this answer, thanks

Resetting to factory defaults will remove any custom configuration, including access numbers, that you have entered and you will need to configure the base station again.

Networking xp and 98


First off, the MN700 basestation is not suported to do this. But it is doable, and here is what I did. I connected a win XP machine (the ICS host) to a win 98 machine (the ICS client). Both used good old fashion network interface cards and standard ethernet cable - no wireless for me yet (that's next week) First I installed the software for the MN700 - aka the "Microsoft Broadband Network Utility." Then I went in to configure the router. I simply set the MN700 to Access Point mode. I did this by logging into the MN700's Base Station Managment Tool. I gave the MN700 a name (ie MSHOME-MN-700 works well), because after I change it from Router to Access Point mode it will no longer have a fixed IP address. To change it, select Security -> Base Station Mode Select the radio button for "Access Point" There is a spot on the bottom of this screen to give the Base Station a name, put something in here (ie MSHOME-MN-700). click apply. Now, I restarted my winXP machine, my win98 machine, and my MN700. Once they all came back online, I went to my dialup connection (Start->Control Panel then select Network Connections). Right click on the dialup connection, and go to properties. On the advanced tab, select the check box for "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection." Click OK Now I restarted my winXP machine and the MN700 again. They came back online, and I could see the MN700 on the network (my machine now gave out IP address (via DHCP and ICS). Now I restarted the win98 machine and it hooked up to the network fine. Wireless devices also connect to the network now with no problems. The key is to set the MN700 from Router to Access Point. If you want to add File and Print Sharing, it is the same as on any network. If you have a USB highspeed modem, this will work as well. If you have a highspeed modem connected directly to a PC via ethernet and you don't want it to go throught the MN700 first, this will work too, but the PC will need a second ethernet interface. Either WiFi or wired. Cheers

Wireless hub


No, you do not have to have the broadband software installed. To access the MS base station go to : http://192.168.2.1/login.htm Using it as a hub and access point requires you to configure is as such. The MN700 can act as a hub/wireless access point using an ethernet cable from your router to the modem port on the base station. The base station has to be setup with the ethernet cable in port 1 on the base station connected to your PC. see "Reconfigure the MN-500 as a Wireless Bridge" in this article. same steps apply for your MN700 http://www.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?thid=102065&prdid=254958 The last step is to reconnect the ethernet cable from the router to the modem port on the MN700.
