You know it is not your connection nor is it your modem. Contact your isp and ask them to release and renew your ip lease. Then connect the router and retry. Should be good. Otherwise contact Microsoft

(800)936-3900,
choose 1 from the confusing menu. The line is free, open 24/7 and there is no
waiting. The best part is that they are very knowledgeable and helpful

I have cable internet but it will not recognize MN 500 base station for internet


You need to perform MAC Address Cloning. Make sure the physical connection is fine. From modem to internet port of router, from pc to port 1 of the router as well. Now open the admin page of your router and look for MAC Address Clone settings. You have to enable it and click on Clone. Save the settings and power cycle your device for 1 minute.

Can connect to router, but not to internet


Is the main computer connected to the router or to the internet directly? If it is a cable modem for the internet, make sure you turn that off, as well as the router, and connect the cable modem to WAN on the router and put the modem on first, then the router. Connect the computers, xbox, etc to the router

Not able to connect to internet


1. try to check the status of the connection:
make sure it is connected and the status does not say either of the ff:
a. local only
b. limited or no connectivity
c. limited access only

2. try to change the network name [ssid] and the network key [wep or wpa passphrase]
you can change this by accessing the ipaddress of the router or its user interface

3.try to reconnect to the new network name
and make sure the status says connected.

this is not a browser issue . it is with the connection set up.

Loosing Connection between MN500 & MN520


If you are using XP, and installed the proprietary WiFi software (not the built in XP software), did you turn off the Zero Configuration Wifi SERVICE? Running both will cause issues with your connections..

Start > Run > services.msc (ok)
