Question about Encore 802.11G WIRELESS LAN ROUTER W/4-PORT SWITCH
I am have trouble connecting to the internet, using the router. If I by pass the router and connect directly to my computer I have no trouble. My provider says the router is holding the old IP address. When I use the repair on my computer, it gives me an error of- trouble clearing ARP cache. Any ideas?
Generally routers can be configured using a web browser. But first we need the manual for the router to know what we are doing. Using the router link below look on your router and try to match the model numbers in red on the left under wireless with your router. If that does not work try matching with the contents of the select a product drop down list box in the top center of the window.
Second -- assuming this router is had a previous owner or was used in another location we need to get access to the router.
If the router currently does not work with your current ISP as indicated you may want to reset the router using instructions from the manual -- reply to this message if you need help.
If you believe the router may contain useful information we need to try to get the router's IP address.
Assuming your computer runs windows XP try this. --
Connect the computer to the LAN (not WAN) portion of the router -- this is probably 4 consecutive ports to plug cables into. Power up both the computer and the router (not connection to the internet required.
Click on Start
then All Programs
then Command Prompt
type -- ipconfig -- (8 letters) and press enter.
Report the resulting display of one or more adapters, ip addresses, subnet masks and default gateways here Iand I will help with the next step.
If you can provide a web link to your ISP's help site -- we will probably be able to conffigure the router for your use with your ISP.
