Re: help plz!

If this is because you have a dsl modem and you want to hook up a wireless router to it you will have to make this change by typing the ip address of the modem into IE and logging into the modem. There will be an area where you can set bridge mode. If you post the make and model number of the modem I can help you more.

Re: help plz!

Connect your computer directly to the ethernet port on the Modem. Bring up a command prompt window (you can get one easily by going Start > Run and typing "cmd" and hit ok. Then in that window, type "ipconfig /all" and look for the Gateway IP Address... type that Gateway IP into your browser address bar and log in from there. Once you get in, the setting should be pretty easy to find. Check out for more details.

I got a problem in connecting my samsung galaxy GT-7500 to sitecom extender 300N .. I have tried to change the IP address but it doesn't work with me . Any help plz?

Which modes are you trying to use this Sitecom? If you have the Sitecom as your Access Point (AP Mode), then you would need a LAN connection to your internet gateway (DSL, Cable Modem, etc). I didn't see any LAN hook up so I assume you are trying to use it as a wireless repeater. So you need to configure the unit differently. The 3rd mode is called Bridge mode. Again, you need to have a LAN hook up to your local network with a router or network switch.
Because your Tablet is connecting to the Sitecom okay, which mean that you either have the Sitecom setting for AP mode or Bridge mode. And the reason it didn't give you access to internet because there is no internet gateway connection to the Sitecom (LAN). I hope this answer your question (or confuse you totally).

Can't play other players online with PS3 because of NAT3 network configuration.

There are many reason as to why NAT3 is not open. First is the ISP's modem, verify from your ISP is set into full bridged mode. If it is just half-bridge, informed your ISP to help you set modem into full bridge mode. Second is forward the port numbers TCP: 80, 443, 5223 and UDP: 3478, 3479 in your router. You will access the set-up page of your D-link router and click "advanced tab" and choose "port forwarding"

Bridge router

1. Use both the Modem and the router as NAT routers. Do this by making your router a DMZ node on your modem, that way ALL traffic will pass to the router, then set up port forwarding etc on the router.

2. Run the router/modem in bridge mode (recommended). You need to set the modem to run in bridge mode, check the user manual for refrences to bridging. Then set the router to connect to PPPoE using a username and password.

Just got wpn824 and having problrms with pppoe login and pass. Using att dsl ...but that login isn't working

You'll need to set your DSL modem up for "bridge mode". Right now it's acting as a router as well and that's keeping your new router from making the connection. In bridge mode, the modem acts only as a modem to connect to AT&T. Then your router will provide your login information and your computers will connect through it correctly.

You don't give your modem model so I can't give you any specific directions. A Google search for "bridge mode" and your modem's make and model should turn up the information you need. Or you can call AT&T's technical support number and ask them how to configure your modem. (Sometimes these big ISPs aren't too keen on helping you, though. They'd rather supply you with a wireless router/modem at an extra charge.)

Hope this has helped. Thanks for using Fixya!

I have a Linksys WRT54G router. The power went out the other day and I haven't been able to establish a connection since. I can connect when I run cable from the modem to the cpu, but not if I try using...

what is the model of your modem? if you said that you are able to get online when your computer is hooked up to the modem only, then it indicatest that your modem is not yet in bridge mode. Putting it in bridge mode will make your modem a "pass through" device thereby causing no conflicts in asking for ip add/connecting to your ISP. when your modem is in bridge mode, you should not be able to get online.
after setting your modem to bridge mode, connect your linksys router. if you have a pppoe connection, or one that uses username and password, have that set up in your linksys router. at this point, your router will be the one to ask ip adds from your ISP. 
you could also visit this site,, for further configuration of your router. as for your modem, try to call your ISP on how to set your modem to bridge.

Try this:

1. If you are using a modem and a router, make sure that your modem is in bridge mode (call ISP tech support to set modem to bridge). If your router is actually a gateway (modem with router functions), you don't have to bridge it.

2. if your modem is already set to bridge mode, on the command prompt (START > RUN > CMD), type in "IPCONFIG". default gateway should show you or Whatever value you have on the default gateway, try to use that to open the settings page of your router.

3. if you can't open the settings page still, optimize your browser (delete cookies and temporary files). if you are using internet explorer, click on tools > option > under browsing history or temporary internet files, click on delete files and delete cookies (or delete all). if you are using firefox, click on tools > clear private data > check all the boxes and click ok.

4. after optimizing the browser, try if you can see the settings page now. if not, try resetting your modem. it will set your router to factory default settings which would mean you would have to configure it again for your connection.

Bridge mode

Reset your modem.
There is a reset button on the back.
Push it in and hold it down for thirty seconds with the modem on.
Log into the modem at (admin/password=username/password)
You will need to change the modems administration username/password, doesn't matter what to since we'll make it unreachable soon enough.
On the connection overview page goto configuration.
Go to DHCP configuration and switch the DHCP server off.
Then goto configuration and click on VC configuration.
All but the first VC should be disabled.
Click on the edit or configure button next to the first and enabled VC.
Switch from either DHCP or PPPoE to Bridge.
At the bottom of the screen click on set VC.
Your modem is now in 'full bridge' mode and will need to be reset again to get it out.

Netgear wgt624 just stopped connecting to internet

I encountered the same problem, with the same modem and also Comcast, and here's what wound up working for me, after time spent with a nice guy on the Netgear customer support line:

1. Log into router: (or - user: admin / password: password

2. Under Maintenance, click Router Status. If IP Address is listed as, there's your problem-- router isn't getting address from modem.

3. At bottom of Basic Settings, under Router MAC Address, change selection from Use Default Address to Use Computer MAC Address.

4. Click Apply.

5. Click Router Status again-- non-blank IP address should now be listed.

6. Basic Settings will now show MAC address under Use This MAC Address. See if you can get online now. I could, and I hope you can, too!
