Re: Restarting device

Generally Yes, when any Systems Settings are "Updated" usually one must reboot any system to cause the system to "Write" and then recognise the new values.

Voice configuration on catalyst 3750V2

The short answer: No

The long answer: You will need a device that will handle call control. That can be an ISR router (gen2 example: Cisco 1900, 2900, or 3900 series) that runs Call Manager Express, or a Cisco UC5XX Box (or even full blown CUCM, though you will still need an ISR to get out to the PSTN). The switch will work great for the infrastructure side of things though. It is capable of layer 3 routing, voice VLANs, QoS, and PoE. But you WILL need something for call control.

My belkin n600 keeps saying no internet connection the light is orange but the computer registers the router

Alright. The orange light means the router has no problems with your inner (private) network or its internal configuration, but it can't connect to the internet by itself. So obviously, your devices, which are routed trough your router, won't be able either.

I've compiled a small list for things you can check to resolve this issue:

- Check if your ethernet cable is connected to your router. It can be a CAT5 DSL cable or a CAT5 cable from your modem, to your router.
- Log onto your router configuration panel on or http://router/ by clicking log in at the top (the default password is blank). Should you get any problems with logging in, you might need to reset your router (button on the back, hit once for restarting and hold for 10 seconds for factory reset).
- Your problem is with WAN (Wide Area Network) or the outer network, so you will want to focus of that area of the configuration panel. Hit "Connection Type" and make sure you configure it accordingly to your ISP. If not sure, you can try and check the LAN/DSL configuration on another device that can connect to the internet via an ethernet port (the CAT5 from your ISP or modem) or just try the "Automatic" option.
- Check out the "DNS" section in the "Internet WAN" section. If unsure, try setting it to automatic. This will inherit the settings from a parent device in the network.
- Working with MAC addresses can be tricky. They are the fingerprint of your internet device (router, computer, LAN switches, modems) and some ISPs register your devices for security purposes. You should probably call your ISP and ask about it, if they need this configured specifically, they'll tell.
- If you're using a number of routers or a modem and a router you may need to change your LAN subnet mask or routers IP address in either your modem or one of your routers settings. This is only necessary if they overlap on multiple devices.

I have to say, though, 99% of the time it's either cables left unplugged or DNS misconfigured.

Voice over IP having very bad reception after a new cable modem and new router was upgrade

Try looking in the router's "Applications and Gaming" section for something called "QOS", or Quality of Service. You probably need to make some adjustments in there to increase the bandwidth assigned to your VOIP device/service.

How do I connect it to a motorola 2210 modem

This FAQ is for configuring a BellSouth supplied Motorola/Netopia 2210-02-1006 with a generic third-party router that isn't specifically covered in the existing FAQs. If you have a router that is covered in the FAQs, I suggest you use that FAQ. This initial setup is all that is needed to configure and connect your generic router based network for FastAccess DSL. Any additional setup for features like DHCP IP ranges, port triggering, etc is out of the scope of this FAQ.

This FAQ has 4 Major sections:
Section 1 - Overview
Section 2 - Motorola/Netopia 2210 modem configuration
Section 3 - Third party router configuration information
Section 4 - Connections and power up

Section 1 - Overview
•The best configuration for networking a router with the Motorola 2210 is to set the 2210 to "Bridged Ethernet" mode and allow the third-party router to do the routing and DHCP functions. The 2210 is also a router with full DHCP functions and may not function correctly when connected directly to another router. Not changing the modem to Bridged Ethernet will result in double NAT'ing, increased latency, possible IP conflicts, or possibly a network that doesn't work at all.
Before proceeding both the 2210 modem and third-party router must be reset to default. Despite what the help desk tech tells you, resetting the modem does not put it into Bridged Mode.
• The BellSouth Installation CD and Connection Manager are not required to use this configuration.
• The third-party Installation Wizard CD should not be used in this configuration.
• Since BellSouth assigns static IPs via your username the configurations shown are applicable to both dynamic and single static IP customers.
• You must connect the 2210 directly to the computer's NIC to make the necessary changes before you connect the router, because you will probably be unable to access the modem interface after you connect the router. The reason is that the modem interface is which is a local IP. By default, most routers do not have the capability to route a local IP out of their WAN port (where the 2210 is connected). Additionally, they may be on completely different subnets. After you have made the changes to the 2210 you can then connect the router and configure it for use with FastAccess. There are several alternatives around this problem. One method involves extra equipment (second NIC and a hub) and major configuration changes. The second method requires you to utilize the router as a simple switch and use the 2210's PPPoE and DHCP functions. Click here for more information.
•If you encounter any problems simply reset the 2210, connect it directly to your NIC, restart your computer, log into the interface, and start over again.

Section 2 ? Motorola 2210 Configuration
bred.gifStep 1
Verify that NIC cards (wireless or wired) are set to "Obtain IP Address Automatically". Completely power down the 2210 and the computer(s). Power up the modem and press the reset button on the back of the modem. After the modem has fully initialized connect the 2210 to the NIC and then power up the computer.

bred.gifStep 2
Open a browser session and enter "" in the address field to access the 2210 GUI interface.

bred.gifStep 3
Enter your BellSouth Username followed by "" in the User ID field. Enter your BellSouth Password in the Password field. Re-enter your BellSouth Password in the Confirm Password field. Click on Next. Update the Auto Calender Update Configuration as desired and click Next. The modem will try to initiate a session and then return to the main menu.

bred.gifStep 4
Click on Broadband DSL Line from the top menu. Click on Configure Connection from the right menu. Select "Bridged Ethernet" from the Protocol pull down. Click on Save and restart the connection at the bottom. This will automatically restart the modem and the interface will return after the changes are saved. Note: functions like NAT, DHCP, IP Passthrough, and username and password will be disabled or irrelevant and can not be selected. After the modem has restarted, power down both the computer and the modem then physically disconnect the 2210.

Section 3 - Third-Party Router Information
bred.gifStep 5
After the PC is powered down connect one of the router LAN ports to the computer NIC and power up the third-party router and then the computer.

bred.gifStep 6
Open a browser session to access the router interface as per the router's user guide. Even though the interface will vary from router to router you must use the following configurations as a basic rule:
- Select Obtain an IP address automatically. Important Note: Use Obtain an IP address automatically even if you ordered a static IP.
- Select PPPoE connectivity. Do not select any other choice, even if you have a static IP.
- Enter your BellSouth Username followed by ""
- Enter your BellSouth Password
- Select "Keep Alive" or "Always On" (if available)
- Set "Maximum Idle Time" to "0" which is similar to "keep alive" and "always on" (if available)
- Select a redial or reconnect period of "180 Seconds" (if available)
- Enter "1492" in the MTU Field (if available)
- Save your settings (which will probably restart your router)

Section 4 - Connections and Power Up
bred.gifStep 7
Power everything down and physically connect the 2210, wired or wireless router, and any computer(s).


Pictures by Andy Houtz

bred.gifStep 8
Power up the network equipment in this order:
1) Motorola 2210 Modem (wait for DSL synch)
2) Third-party Router
3) Computer(s)
Open a browser session and go surfing!

bred.gifImportant Additional Information
•The 2210 has an "Internet" light that is green whenever there is an active PPPoE session initiated by the Motorola. Since you are using the Netgear to establish the PPPoE session the light will stay off. This is normal.
•You should check your tweak settings to optimize your new network. Reminder: If you are required to change your MTU, make sure that it is identical on all equipment (PCs and routers) in the network.

bred.gifCool Stuff
An online, html-based menu simulator program is available here. The simulator recreates the Motorola 2210 user interface and provides the ability to navigate menus; just like the real modem interface. It is for simulation purposes only and will not make any changes to your actual modem.

My router is restarting by it self and its said to me sometimes that the lan connection is limited or has no connectivity

The router is not really restarting itself what is happening is that the connection is being lost possibly due to the distance you are from your router try moving your laptop or computer closer to the wireless route and see if the condition improves.

If this solves your problem please leave feedback otherwise please send more information about your connection and set up.

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
