Question about Xincom XC-DPG502 Router

1 Answer

WAN 2 dissconnects

Setup SBS2003 handles DCHP & DNS, 3 XPSP2 pcs on LAN.
I have cable WAN 1, telecom Wan2. Both nominaly 4mbt/s
WAN 2 frequently disconnects and will not reconnect unless
1. I connect the modem on WAN 2 directly to my PC (presumbly some DCHP thing, since it presents an external address)
2. I reconnect the modem on WAN 2 to the Xincom, disable WAN1 and then renable WAN1 once WAN2 shows connection & traffic.
The Teleco WAN 2 is a bit flaky, bandwidth varies from Max 3mbt/s to 200kbt/s.
Any light you can shed would be welcome.
Thank you.

Re: WAN 2 dissconnects

Try check with your subnets, if your subnet on your SBS is the same as your Xincom configuration and both your SBS and XIncom is acting as a DHCP server, it might cause a conflict.

I am using two WAN connections through TP-LINK TL-R480T+ Broadband Router, I assigned IP to this router. I want to ask what will be the default gate way which will I have to type in optional...

There are a number of bugs that are fixed in the latest firmwares.
You can get the firmware updates at
I'm assuming you're using the load balancing feature you called it a router rather than a load balancer, it threw me off for a second with the 2X wan !
You'll need to look at the little diagram on the page to see if you have a ver 1, 2, 3 or 4 before you update the balancer / router.
You've probably run into an issue where you are getting ports assigned that the router needs for itself, and the new firmware addresses that along with many other little bug fixes (at least the ver 3 does).
If the firmware update doesn't do it for you, please don't hesitate to either reply to this post, or post a new problem...but if you make a new post, please remember that I likely won't be picking it up, and whoever does, will know nothing of the information here, so you will have to provide all information again in the new post.

Show Routing Table button will open a chart displaying how data is routed through your LAN. Use the example below on how to configure a static routing:

ROUTER C ----------------- ROUTER B ----------------- ROUTER A--------------PUBLIC IP ADDRESS

ROUTER A: Gateway Mode ROUTER C: Router Mode

SM: 24 SM: 24

SM: 24 SM: 24


ROUTER B: Router Mode

SM: 24 SM: 24
HOP COUNT: 2 DNS: DNS of 1st router

SM: 24

1stRouter must be set on Gateway Mode
2ndRouter must be on Router Mode
Use Static Routing
Select Entry
Destination IP = IP Subnet of the 1st Router
Subnet Mask = Subnet Mask of the 1st Router
Default Gateway = Interface IP
Hop Count = 1 + n
Interface= Connection to the 1st Router

Hope this help everyone.

Title: Setting up Cable Internet for the RV082 Article ID: 16585

Most cable Internet Service Providers (ISP) use a Media Access Control (MAC) Authentication to establish Internet connections for end-users. A MAC address is assigned a unique 48-bit (6-byte) integer that is attached to an Ethernet NIC for each computer. To set-up your Linksys router to a Cable ISP, you have to do MAC Cloning. MAC Cloning is a procedure which enables a router to copy the MAC address of the PC that's registered with the ISP.

NOTE: Before proceeding, use the computer that can go online when connected to the modem and follow the steps below.
Step 1:
Connect the Broadband modem to the computer using an Ethernet cable without the router installed and make sure that the Internet connection is active. If it is not, contact your ISP. If it can go online, the PC connected to the modem is the one that's registered with the ISP.
kb16585_001_en.png NOTE: The image may vary depending on the computer and modem you're using.

Step 2:
Once an active Internet connection is established through the modem, connect the modem and the computer to the router by following the instructions below.
Step 3:
After ensuring that you have an active Internet connection, connect the modem to the router's Internet port and the computer to any of the four Ethernet ports.
Step 4:
The Linksys router's front panel will indicate the status of the connection. After connecting the broadband modem to the WAN or Internet port, the computer to an available numbered port and powering on the router check the lights on the front panel of the router. For instructions, click here.

Step 5:
Access the router's web-based setup page. For instructions, click here.

Step 6:
Go to the Setup - Network, click the drop-down arrow under the WAN Connection Type field and select Obtain an IP automatically for WAN1.

kb16585_002_en.png NOTE : If you are going to have another Cable Internet as well in WAN2, select obtain an IP automatically as well.

Step 7:
Click Save Settings.

Step 8:
Check in the System Summary if the router is getting a WAN1 IP or WAN2 IP.

If there are no IP addresses seen in this field, go back to Setup then click the More option to reveal the MAC Clone settings.
Step 9:
Select MAC Address from this PC.


Step 10:
Click Save Settings Button.

Step 11:
Click System Summary. Check the value of the WAN1 or WAN2. If these have numbers, this means the router has been properly configured. You should now be able to access the Internet. If you're not online, perform a power cycle to synchronize the router with the modem.
kb16585_007_en.png NOTE: If the WAN1 IP or WAN2 IP is all zeroes ( click first Release then click Renew buttons. If the WAN1 IP or WAN2 IP is still all zeroes ( perform a power cycle.

If the IP Address starts with or if it has the same first three numbers (octets) as the router's IP address, change the router's LAN IP address to a different LAN segment.

Step 12:
Once the router is configured, perform a power cycle. Shutdown the computer and Unplug the router's power cable. Unplug the Broadband modem's power cable and wait for 30 seconds then plug in the Broadband modem's power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable. Plug in the router's power cable once the modem's lights appear stable.

Step 13:
Power on the computer on and test the Internet connection.

NOTE: If you're not online after performing this procedure, you may need to upgrade the firmware of the router. For instructions, click here .

I have RV082 Router , and Diag Led is constant what to do

Checking the Router's LEDs

The Linksys router's front panel will indicate the status of the connection. After connecting the broadband modem to the WAN or Internet port, the computer to an available numbered port and powering on the router check the lights on the front panel of the router.

The Linksys router's front panel will indicate the status of the connection. After connecting the broadband modem to the WAN or Internet port, the computer to an available numbered port and powering on the router, the following should be lit:
  • 1 - 8 (LAN)
  • DMZ/Internet (WAN2)
  • Internet (WAN1)
  • Diag
  • System

Checking the Router's LEDs
Step 1:
Make sure the System LED is lit.

NOTE: If the Diag LED doesn't goes off, you need to upgrade the router's firmware. For instructions, click here .

Step 2:
Make sure the LAN 1-8 ports is lit depending on the computers connected to the designated Ethernet port.

NOTE: If the LAN 1-8 port is not lit, make sure that the computer is powered on. You can also try connecting the PC using another working cable.

Step 3:
Make sure the Internet (WAN1) and DMZ/Internet (WAN2) LED is lit.
NOTE: If the Internet or DMZ/Internet LED is not lit make sure the Broadband modem is powered on and that the modem is properly connected to the Ethernet port

You can access the web-based user interface utility of the RV082 by using one of two methods:

  • Through the RV082 IP address ( by default), or
  • Through its default hostname ("RV082")

1. Open a web browser (Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator)

· By IP address: Type ( is the default IP address of the RV082)

and click Go or press the [Enter] key.

· By Hostname: Type http://RV082 and click Go or press the [Enter] key.

2. When the username and password prompt appears, type admin in both the username and password fields. (admin is both the default username and default password for the RV082).

Trying install belkin n150 router.setup router and cables as setup guide instructs.i run cd but programe will not find connection to router.i played with connections and it showes i use wan miniport...

Try the following:

1. Make sure your PC is connected to the router directly and the LAN ports are lighting up
2. Reset the router
3. Reset the network adapter on your PC (or just restart the PC)

This should ensure that you are connecting on the LAN port.

Hooking up to main pc and to another in the next room. have no cd

Since you did not include your exact model number and type of internet provider I cannot give you more specific instructions. Although you can refer to the links below on how to set it up. If you require further assistance just reply to this and give me the model number of your ISP and the model of your router.

Hello jmazaredo,

Does your DNS server have your server fqdn in its tables, and does your PC have the address of your DNS server in its lookup table?

One test you can do is to use the hosts file to put the fqdn into and assign it an address this would let you know the the PCs can use host tables to do the translation then this becomes a DNS issue as opposed to a lookup issue and you cut your troubleshooting in half.

In other words edit your hosts tables (hosts file) with the entry (Example 1):


This as stated will determine if you have a DNS issue or a lookup issue, because the DNS system will use host tables first and the do a DNS lookup.

Once this is done if it works then try this setup:

1) in your router set the DNS to capture the DNS of your ISP (normally the setting will tell the router to use the DNS given to it by the DHCP protocol.

2) turn on DHCP on the LAN side of the connection in the router and set the controls for proxy DNS service (using the router as the local DNS server also called caching DNS server), However set the router up to allow static IPAddreses and if possible to recognize the domain name of the local LAN.

3) set your servers up with static IP addresses and in their host tables set the fqdn up as stated above in Example 1

4) in your PC set the DNS to be the IP Address of your LAN side of your router i.e. and if needed set the host tables of all PCs to the server addresses, fqdn, and aliases this way if DNS fails the system will at least have the host tables to use.

I hope this helps.

Thank you,

Hey BIgz19

It is not illegal, of course!

I assume you do have an ADSL or Cable modem connected with LAN cable.
You connect your modem to the wall outlet/splitter with a telephone cable.
Then then modem is connected with LAN cable to your router's WAN port and then two PCs to any of 4 LAN Ports.

Please follow these steps.

First RESET your Edimax router and disconnect all LAN cables if connected.

Connect one PC to one of the 4 LAN ports of your Router with a LAN cable.

Open My Network Places and then View network connections, or go to Control Panel and open Network Connections.

Right-Click on your LAN adapter and choose Properties, then double-click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)

Set to 'Obtain IP address automatically' and 'Obtain DNS server addres automatically' (click OK). Now you are back to the previous window. Click and check (if it is not) 'Show icon notification when connected' and once again click OK.

After a fiew seconds you should get (near to the clock in the the right bottom of your desktop), a Network icon and a baloon message that your NIC is connected.

Right-click on the network icon and click STATUS, a window will open
and then click on SUPPORT tab.
You should see:
IP Addres:
Subnet Mask:
Default Gateway:

Open your browser and type

Now login as:
admin (default)
and password is: 1234 (default)

Click on GENERAL SETUP on Top-Left, and then on WAN (on the right side) and choose
Click on 'More configuration'
Type your User Name and Password you have from your ISP.

Now Click on APPLY, and again APPLY !

The Router will restart in 30 Sec, and your NIC will reconnect.

Now connect your Modem to a WAN port of your Router with LAN cable.

if you've typed your User Name and Password correctly in PPPoE fields,
if everything is OK with the service from your provider,

you should now be on Internet.

If not, then please check your User Name and Password with your Internet Service Provider, and ask them if they can see your router.

Now, get to the other PC and do the same above.

Connect the NIC with LAN cable to another port of your router.

The second PC should be on Internet, too.

You should check if both PCs are in the same WORKGROUP !
Right-click on My Computer, click Properties, then click 'Computer name' tab, and down on CHANGE. In the Workgroup field type the same as the Workgroup name of the other PC, then APPLY and OK.
This action need a REBOOT. Do reboot!

That's it!

Hope it helped.

PPPoE over Edimax BR-6104K without a modem

  Actually in short  "you NEED A MODEM;"
In order to connect your router you need to connect a modem in "bridge mode'( bridge mode is nothing but a configuration on the modem)..

this is a picture of  rear side of a  router,,, you have to connect the modem into the wan port of the router (above),, and in port number 1,2,3,4 you can connect your computers,
