    I am getting an ip address but it is my public IP and it is not getting nat'd for whatever reason.  If I switch off and on it is still the same.



     



    If I unplug my cable modem ethernet cable from the wan port I get 169.... address after doing a renew.



     



    Anybody had this before?

The 169.xx.xx.xx address is the internal ip address. If that is what you are getting, then the router is sending the link state advertisement but not offering any addresses for use or validation. Now, try the following for me:

Connect an ethernet cable from LAN port 1 on the router to your computer.
Set your PC's ethernet port to address 192.168.1.2 / 255.255.255.0 and your default gateway to 192.168.1.1.
Unplug the power to the router and plug it back in.
Open a browser and type in 192.168.1.1 and hit enter.

This should bring you to the point where you can reset factory default and such, and hopefully get things working again. If it doesn't work, we can try something else. Remember, if it is still under warranty get ASUS to replace it. If not, we can try other methods to revive your router.

That means the router is not giving an  ip address already it might require hard reset and if still not giving an ip aside from 169....then it means router is busted and is just acting as a pass thru now.

169.254 ..... is an ip that computer will generate if the device where its plugged into is not giving an ip address.

Make sure that you have still a valid ip address on command prompt. Go to start - click run - type cmd (open box) - click ok - type ipconfig after the cursor - hit enter and check ip address. If you are getting an ip address of 0.0.0.0 or ip starting with 169.254....then that is the reason. Unplug and replug router to regain the ip. also check firewall and proxy server. they should be disabled

How can I reset the passwork on my LG 32LD400 TV?


If you have access to the web admin interface...
All passwords can be changed in the User list (Share -> User). Click the User ID to change the password. Due to security reasons, passwords can only be changed in the web admin interface. If you forget the admin password, the password can only be reset by a service technician.
You can re-initalize the device (per instructions in the manual), but it will erase all data.

I have moved address and taken my router with me but no longer have the software cd for it and cannot find a way to get my wireless set up


Hard reset your wireless router and connect it with your laptop/desktop lan port through patch cord. Look there it is connected or not. If connected then check the default gateway ip address and put it in your web browser and press enter to open the router terminal. Most routers username/password is admin/admin or admin/****(blank) or ****(blank)/admin or admin/password.

Hope it works.Then you setup your wireless router as before as you done.

Need to configure for wirless setupnew dsl line from one isp to another need to set up router for wireless connection


If you are setting up a new router for DSL connection, i presume that you already know the login credentials to access your router's admin interface. By default, depending on your router's model, you can access and configure it at http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 using a web browser and make sure that computer you are using is connected to the router through an ethernet cable.

Default login credentials:
user name: admin
password: admin (or try also leaving it blank)

When you are at the web interface, go to a link known as SETUP and there you can setup your connection. If your DSL provides you a user name and password, then you can also enter them there. Then save your settings.

To allow internet broadcasting using wifi, go to a link known as "WIRELESS" and setup encryption there using WAP, WPA2, or WEP or any other recommended encryption protocol. Through this, you can prevent other users near your place to use your internet connection without informing you.
