What exactly is the problem? Are you using Cable or DSL internet? Did you connect the cable from the modem to the WAN port on the router and the computer to the LAN or 1 port on the router?

SOURCE: Problem using Wa1003A and Tew 432 brp to share my internet

lan wires are the same. lan wires used to connect your computer to your modem can also be used to connect your Wa1003A adsl router and TEW 432 brp.

you just got some things mixed up.

1. you should set your Wa1003A adsl router to bridge mode. At this point, it will just be "pass through" device and will not be the one who will ask for IP adds from your ISP.

2. configure your TEW 432 brp with your pppoe username and password. Your TEW 432 brp will now ask the network for the IP address to that it can connect to your ISP.

3. leave your lan wires the same.

How to solve it???

your trendnet is just a router and it should work with any ISP whether if it's cable or dsl. you just need to connect it to the broadband modem provided by your ISP and configure with the correct settings.
with cable conncetion you just simply connect the ethernet(LAN) port of the modem to the internet(WAN) port of the router. then perform a power cycle by turning all the devices off. after that, turn on the modem first and wait for the lights to lit up before powering on the router and the computers. if this will not work you need to access the router's page and perform a mac address clone.
for dsl connection, you need to get the username and password of your internet account from your ISP then set your router to PPPoE or PPPoA.
you need to also check that your modem and your router has different ip addresses to make them connect to each other properly.

hope this'll help you but if you still have the same problem, just give me the exact model of your modem and who is your ISP

TEW-432BRP getting diconnected.


-- who is your internet service provider
-- what is the operating system of your computer?
-- is this working fine before or is this a brand new router

you may try this and see if this help solve your problem. make sure your computer is directly connected to the router

Step 1: Shutdown the computer.
Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable.
Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds.
Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable.
Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable.
Step 6: Power on the computer on and configure the router settings
Step 7: test the Internet connection.

if this still didnot work, upgrade the firmware of your router


configuring the router settings will depends who is your provider. if your isp is dsl you need to configure your ISP username and password on the router. if your router is a cable no need to change any settings on the router. it should automatically work

if you are still having trouble configuring your device, try to call supportrix and use supportcall as your promo code for 1 free technical support.
