Your gateway would not normally block unknown mac address on the lan side unless you have somebody extremely security conscious and specifically locked down the device - highly unlikely. Are you doing anything different than what is described in this procedure?

You should enter the "Wireless MAC Address" of the XBOX and not just the "MAC Address". You can see it on the system info of the XBOX settings.

SOURCE: Not able to get the default gateway

I didn't find the routher listed, but I did find one that may be close here http://cache-www.belkin.com/support/dl/man_f5d7234-4_v4000_p8820-00118_reva01.pdf

If your gateway is showing as 192.168.100.1, and your computer is also getting something in the 192.168.100.x address, you should be able to put 192.168.100.1 in the address line of Internet Explurer and get to the router's web page. Thise instructions are on page 25 (actually 27 of the pdf and how odd they letter them a-z, aa-zz, aaa-zzz!)

It's also possible that your modem is giving out the IP addresses and not the router. If that's the case, you have to assign the 192.168.2.(2-254) address to your computer manually and point it to 192.168.2.1 so you can get to your router's web page. The specific instructions are in the back of the manual on page 75 (see above for translations ZZZ)

Hope this works for you.

SOURCE: MAC ADDRESS FILTERING MAY BE ENABLED ON MY WIRELESS ROUTER?

should be an option in the console (in browser go to 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1, etc)

MAC Filtering just means that you can set up a set of MAC addresses (Machine Address) of units you want to be able to access your network. If you didnt set the MAC of a unit it will not be able to join the network. So mac filtering is a way to limit connection with your network.

Cant access router admin page


What URL are you using to get to the admin page?
It is possible the Arris has been configured to only allow wired connections to the admin page. You may need to connect an Ethernet cable between your computer and the modem.
If you are connected wirelessly, what is your default gateway? This should be the URL you're attempting to connect to for the admin page.

Unable to connect to router on new tablet


192.168.1.1 is a gateway address, if you give it to the tablet, it will not work. Is this your Own Network? OR Are you trying to hook up to an unknown network? What is the Make of the Tablet? If this is your own Network, make sure that you do not have MAC Filtering switched ON on the Router, this will let the tablet authenticate, but when connecting to the network, the router will refuse the connection as the MAC address of the Tablet is not in it's Safe MAC address table. If this is not your network, contact the owner of the network, if you are trying to smooch free wifi... Tough Luck.

How do i secure my wireless router arris line so only the 2 computers in our house can draw off it


You will access you router and make a wep password se insturctions below

To open the set up page of the router of the router , one of your computer should be able to go online through the router.
It could be a wired computer or wireless computer.
If it is a wireless computer then make sure that the computer is connected to your own wireless network.
Do not change any wireless settings on the router using a wireless computer.
OK ! Now you have a computer online through the router and you want to open the set up page of the router.

First step is check the IP address of the computer.
Check the IP address and the Default gateway on the computer.

For Windows XP

START ==> RUN ==> type in cmd in the RUN box==> click OK or Hit ENTER . You will see a black window that is a command prompt . In the black window type in " ipconfig " ==> and Hit ENTER on your key board .

For Windows Vista and Windows 7

click on START ==> type in cmd in the start search box ==> enter ==> you will see the black window. Type in " ipconfig "you will see a lot of information. Try to find out the local area connection IPv4 address .

Note down the Default gateway number.

For MAC OS

Click APPLE icon in the right top corner of the computer. Go to System Preferences ==> go to Network ==> you will find the option Built in Ethernet or Airport whichever is connected. If you go to that you will find the Ip address and router Address.

The default gateway is the IP address of your router.

This IP address of the router will be used to open the set up page of the router

Now you got the IP address of the router.Open the Internet Browser ( Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari )

In the Address bar of the browser Type the IP address of the router.

Do not type http:// or www just type in the IP address only.

It will ask you for the user name and the password of the router.

This is the User name and the password of the router and NOT the wireless password. On a wireless router, there are 2 passwords. One is to access the router and the other one is for the wireless network.

For most of the routers the default password will be " admin " . for some routers the default password is " password ". For Linksys router the default password is admin and no user name.

Need to add a MAC address to my router


The MAC address is the non copyable address which is set at manufacture in all PC and wireless systems. You need to add your Roku to your network by telling the network to scan for the Roku or telling the Roku to scan for the network, either way, your PC should ask you if you wish to add the found devices to the network and you need to answer yes and then input the PIN number you gave your wirless system when you set it all up. If you are not using at least WPA security then you need to as an unsecured wireless network is an open invitation to someone stealing your identity and your online limits, like your download limit.. Tell the Roku to scan for active networks, when it finds yours, it should try and connect and this should trigger a message from your PC asking you if you wish to allow the connection. After you have entered yes, you will need to use the network password which you set at in itial network setup. You can also ask your PC to scan for devices and then follow the same procedure as above..Networks are set up and adjusted through the network wizards in Control Panel..

Getting error message: Invalid Ip address


This would normally mean that you have assigned the IP address manually but have also given that same IP to another computer and they are fighting about it.

If this is the case then just check your IP allocations and find out which computer is using the same IP and change it to one that is not in use.

It may also mean that your router is trying to use the same IP as your modem

With just your modem connected to the computer

go to the START MENU / RUN then type CMD and press enter.

Now in the black screen type IPCONFIG /ALL

Take note of the numbers esp in the default gateway, that is your modem)

Now with just the router connected by wire do the same thing.

This time the default gateway is your router if it is the same as your modem then you need to alter it in your router,

You haven't given a model so you will have to work this bit out yourself but your are looking for a setting on your router that starts with the same number you got.
If your default router gateway was lets say 192.168.1.1 then that is what you would be looking for. Change the third block so now it reads 192.168.2.1 and save the settings. This would clear any conflict between modem and router.

If you have assigned IP's to computers they would need to be changed to reflect the routers new IP and again you would just change the third block in the allocated IP to a 2

If in doubt read this a couple of times or print it out.

Keep getting popup message


Nowadays, Internet Gateways or Routers have wireless capabilities and are switched ON without security.

Ask your ISP Tech Support about disabling the wireless feature of your router first.

ARRIS Modem + D-Link router = no internet


when you are on Cable Internet with a "modem" only connected directly to the computer, what the ISP see is the computer's MAC Address (command prompt -> type ipconfig and hit enter).

put a router (which has it's own MAC Address) in-between and the ISP wont let you cause it sees the router not the computer.

check physical connection: cable modem -> router -> computer(hard wire for this troubleshooting)

access the d-link gui and locate the “Clone MAC Address" button (supposed to clone the computers MAC Address - verify if it's the same), save settings & reboot the router.

Sometimes the security settings will only let certain MAC addresses connect to the network as well as the password protection. Make certain that yours isn't filtering out MAC addresses.

Cant connect to dns server


When attemptin to attach to a wireless router

Either the SSID's match between your router and wireless adapter or your router is unencrypted and is attached to by the default configuration that uses the SSID it finds of an unencrypted network.

Now the two machines can talk to each other

If you request a dynamic IP address from the router it's DHCP can pass to your wireless adapter a various pieces of information including an IP Address, subnet mask, default gateway (the routers address in this case), adn DNS addresses (optional)

If you have static addressing in the wireless adapter you must provide to the wireless adapter a IP Address (NOT in the DHCP range of the router and not matching any other device attacned to the network, the same subnet mask as the router, the gateway address of the router and DNS addresses.

The first three of these allow you to communicate with the roouter and establish connectivity with it.

If the router's lan address is 192.168.0.1 and subnet mask is 255.255.255.0 then all addresses of devices connected to the router lan must begin 192.168.0.?. IF the DHCP server in the router can assign 192.168.0.100 - 192.168.0.149 as dynamic addresses. We can assign 192.168.0.2 - 192.168.0.99 as static IP addresses each to one and only one device. There are more potential static addresses above 192.168.0.149 but we will ignore them for this discussion.

The communication band (A, B, G, N) sable by for the router and wireless adapter must have at least one in common

Both the router and wireless adapter must have encryption set the same (WEP or WPA with the same passphrases and options)

If Mac Filtering is enabled on the router the MAC address of the wireless adapter must be loaded into the routers table of permitted MAC addresses.

If there is an error in the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway?, encryption, or Mac Filtering, mismatched bands the wireless connection will fail as indicated with limited or no connectivity.

Even if all that works you still are not assured access to the internet.

The DNS addresses and default gateway are needed to be correct along with all the ISP's interface requirements for the wan or modem side of the router to be able to access the internet as and achieve the expected results such as accessing google.

If you would like to work through this step by step we can get you connected however I cannot see what you are doing and anything you do or change that I don't know about until we are done is likely to confuse the process. Please reply to this message if you wish for me to continue to assist.
