I'm using the MN-100 router right now and it works perfect with Vista! with DSL PHONE LINE
log into your base station(MN-100) defualt password is: admin
1. Make sure 'DHCP server' is set to 'Enabled'.
2. 'Network Mode' setting must be set to 'Routing mode'.
3. Works with Firewall enabled.
GO TO the page (Wide Area Network (WAN) Settings
enable: PPPoe-uses point to point protocal over ethernet
then below that enter user name & password same as you did the first time you used your DSL i include (MY)service name too(SBC Global) when done go back to home page click connect may take a min or two your done! after initial setup is done its fast and you dont have to put user name or pass in again either!

AFTER USING THE MN-100 BASE STATION FOR FIVE YEARS, IT ISN'T GETTING ANY POWER (LIGHTS NOT COMING ON) YET THE PLUG HAS JUICE. DO THESE JUST WEAR OUT OVER TIME?


All electronic devices will eventually fail, depending on how well they are manufactured and the conditions they are operated under.
Things that will lower the lifespan of a router : high sustained amounts of traffic, being crammed into a tight space where they do not have room to remain cool, poor power, spikes or brownouts can be very damaging to routers. I would suggest making sure it is plugged into a proper surge protector in a well ventilated area.
That said, 5 years is a decent lifespan for such a device, most manufacturers will only warranty such devices for 1 year.
hope this was helpful.

Reconnecting Wired Base Station MN-100


Yes, that is possible. Since you have changed providers, you have to reconfigure the router depending on your new provider.

You can try these steps:

1. Turn off the the router, modem and the computer.
2. Wait for 30 seconds then turn on the modem and make sure that all (if not most) lights are stabilize
3. When the lights are stabilized, turn on the router and wait for the lights to stabilize.
4. When both the router and the modem are stabilized, you can turn on the computer and check for the connection.

If it still does not work, you may need to configure the router based on the settings needed by the service provider that you have. If you wish, inform me of the name of your service provider and I will give you the specific settings on how to configure your router.
