Re: paradyne problem 6218

If the address you mention is correct, try reseting the router first, (normally a little hole at back), then typing in again, although most routers have a 192.168.x.x reference and not 198.168.x.x as you mention.

Paradyne 6218

The router must provide new internal IP's. Make sure it is set to DHCP. IPs are never shared.

Linksys b router not getting internet from modem, why?

Did it *EVER* work, or is this a "first-time" setup problem?

1. You need a "straight-through" Ethernet cable between the WAN (not LAN) port on the router to your modem.
2. You need a _working_ Ethernet cable between the modem and the router.
3. You need to turn the modem on.
4. You need to turn the router on.
5. You need to connect your PC to the router, and access the router's built-in web-server, and then view the router's "WAN-status" web-page. While on that page, click 'Renew IP address".

How to login to the modem after i have turned of the dhcp setting?

The dhcp setting does not affect the modem's address. your login address should be the same. If the browser is saying page cannot be displayed, use refresh or the back key to get back to the original login address.

Router administration access

Hi Neomonkey,

It seems like you have a very big problem. If you are successfully connnected to the wireless router, you can check the the ip address of the router by doing an ipconfig in command prompt, check the default gateway and try to access using IE browser. The next problem is accessing the router when you are prompted to enter the username and password, the default is username: admin password: admin, depending on the model, if it is customized, you will have to reset the router to access it and configure the mac filtering or enable wireless security to deny the person who is taking up your bandwidth. You dont have to access the Paradyne modem to configure everything, if you want to find out if it is running DHCP, you can connect a PC wired(straight UTP cable) with all the network settings at default and check if you can get an ip using ipconfig with the command prompt. The main thing here is to reset your wireless routers to factory defaults(use the button at the back) to re-organize your connection and setup a security for unwanted users.

Inform me if there are other questions or clarifications you need regarding the problem.

Using both USB and Ethernet port to connect to the Internet

Hi; I have used it with both ethernet and usb connections at the same time. I have never used the bridge, but I use it at home.

Try this ( I have XP SP3): Right-click on the monitors where the clock is (lower right corner), select "Open Network Connections". Go to the LAN connection and r-click "Properties". On the "general" tab select "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)". There you select "Obtain IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server automatically" then click "Ok" until exit. Either Shut Down or Restart the PC. Check if this work.

NAT? Where?!

Perhaps you are using a different firmware than the one they are using in the guide. If they are using an older one then you may just need to figure it out. Look through your router's settings again for anything that mentions NAT, Port Forwarding, or Virtual Server. Then just pick the port (or ports) that you want to forward and which machine to forward them to.

One last thing that may be causing your issue is that you are not connecting to your router. Does the configuration page that you visit display your routers make or model? If you have a modem and a router, then it's possible you are actually connecting to your modem instead.

Connection of Paradyne 6211 to iMac (OS 10.5) via Ethernet


If you connect by using LAN port (RJ 45) you don't have to install driver. However USB connection will require driver. Do you have Ethernet adapter installed to you iMAC? If you have it will be resolved easily without using USB port. Check the following link for connection instructions

If physical connection is successful you can go to internet browser type and check your modem's settings. Please post if you need further assistance

Good Luck

Paradyne Dsl Modem

Hi, If I understand you right, what you want is to use your Paradyne 6211 modem to share the Internet connection to 2 PCs. One is connected through the USB and the second through Ethernet port. Tried it on a Siemens 4200 and a Prolink Hurricane 9000, both worked and can be done. To be sure, the IP settings of the PC connected via Ethernet was set to manual configuration. In your case try IP, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, DNS Servers - whatever your ISP are using. You of course can try and see if it works in your modem. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
