Question about Fortec Star Lifetime ULTRA

Fortec Innovative problem

Like others I can no longer dowload updates direct from my router - I get the message 'Network established but disconnected (98)'. I have checked Gateway and DNS are the same, have it on DHCP, in 'IP Mode' and 'Local IP', but still I can't get the thing to connect.

Can you help, please?

    Try also the following:

    0-Disable all firewalls.

    1- Connect the router to your computerusing a network cable.



    2- Open Start >> Connect to >> Show all connections



    3- Right click on 'Local Area Connectio'n and choose properties, then scroll down and double click on 'Internet protocol TCP/IP'.



    4- tick on 'use the following Ip Address' and use this address:-

    Ip Address: 192.168.0.1

    Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0



    Just fill these two and leave the rest Blank, then click OK.



    5- now go again to Start >> Connect to >> Show all
    connections. This time right click on 'Wireless Network
    Connection' .



    6- Go to 'Advanced' then tick on 'Allow other network ...' and choose 'Local Area Connection, from the list, then click OK.



    7- now connect to the Internet and see if it works.

    Hi, you need to connect to the router using an ethernet cable, and not in wireless mode.

    If you are using wireless, that can be the cause of the problem.



    Disable all firewalls on the computer you are using. Also firewalls can block the network.



    If it still does not work it Depends on Fortec, in some way they are
    cutting you out from the network. Ensure that you are entitled to
    download codes, it looks like their server is cutting out your IP right
    after you connect to the network.



    First ensure that you are entitled to download codes if you are not
    this can be normal, after a while they can spot and block an IP. Give
    them a call to ensure it is not that your IP had been blocked.



    If your account is fine, try updating receiver firmware.
