Question about Compaq Connection Point CP-2E (283010-001) Router
I am trying to use a Compaq CP-2E router to connect to my Verizon DSL service. My DSL modem is a Westell 2200. I usually use FireFox but tried IE as well.
The router's indicator lights show a connection between the computer and the router, and are otherwise normal but I can't even log in to the router using cp.home as the instructions state.
I tried all the wizard and troubling-shooting options in Windows XP to no avail.
I can connect to the internet with no problem when I go straight from the computer to the Westell modem.
I really need to get this stupid router working so I can utilize an ethernet-based internet cam.
I have been advised by a co-worker to just by a newer router, with better, more modern firmware but is this really the only answer?
BTW, Compaq's instructions claim that the router should just auto-configure with Windows XP. HAH!
I have already wasted hours on this problem, so any help is much appreciated.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.
