Hi, I had the same problem with my MBP and the best solution I found was:
Dissable the Wlan security and use Mac Address control only for the wireless. This will keep your network secure anyway and you can connect normally.

The only inconvenience is that when you want to connect other computers to your wireless you have to enter its MAC address on the list.

Remember to set the list as Allow.

Help! I have just got internet and my aterm WR8165N-ST router won't work with my NTT VH100 modem. I've been told I need to configure the router - can someone tell me how to do that in English? Thanks


I believe your VH100 is only a VDSL converter. You'll need to reconfigure your NEC router as an access point or PPPOE. You'll need the credentials from the company to put into your router. I can't help you cuz I am not familiar with either device.
I would ask who you're buying DSL from if they have a wireless device you can buy or rent from them so they will help you. Or cancel your service and buy internet from someone else. I prefer cable. It takes about a week to activate your VDSL line so it may not even be turned on yet.

I have just bought a Dynex [DX-E402] router and i'm trying to connect my laptop and pc to the same internet through it but its not picking up any internet access. If i connect my pc directly from my...


The modem has likely assigned it's IP address to the MAC address of the PC.
We need it to assign an IP address to the WAN port MAC address of the router!
When you hook up the router, the modem is no longer sending data to the correct MAC address.
Unplug the power to both the modem and the router.
Power up the router FIRST, and wait for it to complete it's initialization.
Once the lights have settled down on the router, power up the modem.
Wait for it to fully initialize.
NOW turn on your PC or laptop, and everything should be working just fine.
If not, post a reply or add a comment to this post, and I will try to further assist you.

Belkin Wireless N router/Embarq 660 modem/No internet


Make sure your physical connection is correct. From the modem, the ethernet cable should plugged in to the Internet/WAN port of the router. And your computer to port 1. Access the setup page of the router again and Enable the MAC Address Clone setting. Clone the MAC Address of your PC there then power cycle the router and modem. You should be all set.

Router won't connect to the internet


I managed to figure it out. I had to clone the MAC address to get the router to connect to the Internet.

I still have another problem though, my laptop still won't connect to the router. I'm using Vista, is this a possible network adapter issue? My laptop is fine at connecting to other wireless networks round my friend's houses/libraries...

Losing internet connection when I try to connect laptop to wireless router


Your cloning the mac address - thats the problem. It should use it's own mac address to connect to the modem. You need to power down the modem, then repower after a minute or so to let it connect to the new mac address. The problem you are seeing is due to network collisions betweenj the desktop and the router with the modem.
