Question about Linksys -Cisco Wireless-G VPN Broadband Router [ WRV54G ] (107013)
I changed my carrier from comcast to timewarner..Now my linksys WIrelesss router is not able to communicate my modem. If I connect my modem directly to my laptop it works. Is there any configuration set-up that needs to be done so that Linksys starts working
I think so, but Comcast and Time Worthless (tm) should have been the same. They have a trick, it's called MAC addresses. It could be that the TW modem is looking for the one that's in your laptop and when it sees the MAC address for the router, it shuts down. Start by powering everything down. Then power up the cable modem and power up the router. If you're lucky, it will work, if not, have TW send a reset to the modem. I assume you left the Linksys as obtaining a DHCP from the host, because that's what it should do and your computer should also be set to Obtain a DHCP automatically.
Just for fun, you can do an IPCONFIG under DOS and read the IP address and gateway both directly connected and behind a router.
If you get those famous 169.xxx.xxx.x addresses, then something is broken and just start over with no power.
Worst case, a TW tech can send the reset down, or you could try "cloning" your computer that works MAC address to the router, but that's the next step.
