I have one, after finding out how reliable and well-made they are. However, they can be picky during setup, especially since they have a rare 'config IP' address (the number you type into your internet browser's address bar to change the modem's settings). Click here >> 192.168.100.1
See this link for more info.
yes of course.. connect your mobile to the computer via connectivity cable, blue tooth or infrared. setup a new connection and enjoy.
note: you need to get access point settings from your network carrier. for further problem you will have to cantact your customer care of your network carrier and get help from them since all the carriers have different settings..
The router is a Microsoft, not the modem. I know of only one other person that owns a M$ router. A Netgear would have been my preference and a lot less trouble.
If you press the window key and R, you'll open up a RUN box that you type in CMD and press OK. It will open up another box (DOS) and you type IPCONFIG. The machine will respond with your IP address and gateway. If the gateway is something like 192.168.1.1 and your IP address is 192.168.1.x where x is anything but 1, it's a good start.
Open up Internet Explorer and type in the 192.168.1.1 or whatever into the address bar. It should open up the web browser for the Microsoft router. Now, did you get a set of instructions with a quick setup? Is this the MN-xxx box? You get to search the M$ website for the setup instructions if you don't have or never had them. Or, remember that $40 Netgear?
The username and password might be admin and admin or blank. That lets you set up wireless security. It should have some pretty self-explanatory help screens to give you either a WEP key or a WPA-PSK key. I'd start with WEP and a simple 10 character hex password like FACE123456. If the neighbors guess it, you can always go for better passwords or change the one you just set.
Hope this works, and think of me down the interstate from you (x187).
Sounds it is your modem. I had a similar issue with my old one. I had a westell 6100F and now have a 6100G that helped. My company had to replace about 150 of line about 1000 Ft away from my house. The cable was in a storm drain and it was getting wet and interupting my internat connection.
Make sure that the ip address isn't set as static. It should normally be set for dhcp. Confirm that the network card also works as it is second hand.
If that is all OK, then it must be your router. Ask a pal to pop round with a laptop or another CPU to confirm that you can access the internet via your router. If not then, it is either your router or your ISP.
When the SurfBoard modem is powered up and connects to the internet on the WAN interface, it automatically gets an IP address from your ISP. When another machine is powered up and is connected to the modem via a USB cable, it is automatically using the WAN IP address to communicate with the world. If it is connected via the Ethernet connection, the modem automatically issues it its own IP address for use on the internal network via DHCP. The modem's internal Ethernet connection is 192.168.0.1. The next machine powered on will normally get an IP address of 192.168.0.2.
hardwire the modem with the acer computer and shut both the modem and the computer down..then turn on the modem ..wait for a minute and then turn on the computer..just check whether the status still says local or not.....remember this is the first step..if it doesnt work,,keep me infmd,,i will be back with u
To setup your router first check.. 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 Internet Service Provider. If it can go online, to setup connection.. Step 1: Connect the Broadband modem to the router’s WAN or Internet port. Step 2: Connect the computer to any available numbered port (1, 2, 3 or 4). NOTE: In this example, we’ll connect the computer to port number 3. Step 3: Make sure the power adapter is plugged to an available power outlet.
Step 4: check if you are able to go online wired..
if not your router has to be configured first, to config your router i need some more information your internet service providers (isp)name , and how many computers do u have totally..
