Question about MSI Wireless-G RG54G3 Router

1 Answer

Unplugged per cable company instructions & not won't connect

Today Charter cable went down. They had me bypass the router to see if I could get to the internet. Well, now that cable is back up, I re-connect my router and can't connect to the internet although I can with my PC. I have a ethernet cable going from the modem to my router and one from my router to my PC. Is that right? Is there a specific order to turn things on?

The configuration of your cables is correct, as long as your modem is connected to the 'internet' port on your router. You must unplug the power cord from the back of your modem and plug it back in so that the modem recognizes the router. After doing this you should be able to get to the internet.

The modem has a security feature that only recognizes one physical address. When you were plugged directly into your pc, it had the pc's physical address saved in its memory. When you reconnected to the router, the modem blocked the router's access to the internet because the physical address of the router did not match the physical address that was saved in memory.

Linksys WRRT300n v1.1 will not connect to any wireless device


Some times this is do to the way charters network is provisioned. The reason I know this is I always used my own routers to avoid rental fee. All of the sudden none of my four routers will work with charter. They try to delicately say it's a problem with my routers, I know they are working fine. Long and short you may not be able to use your router with charter because of the way they are provisioning similar to the way a modem is provisioned. They won't tell you this because they are probably not legally allowed to do it. Try to call a tech @ charter and casually ask what routers work well with their network or ask them to recomend a router that will work well, or you can continue to fight with the one you with possibly no avial. Hope this helps.

We lost power for a few hours .The cable company ( charter ) had to reboot the modem to reestablish the internet connection. Since then I cannot get the Cisco router to work.. I've done all the plug,...


1. if the power went out and then back on it is possibly due to a "power surge" and it possibly damaged the power supply to the Cisco router and or to the router itself.
2. check the routers power supply and replacement is needed if the router was not plugged into a surge protected socket.

I have charter internet with a modem and i have a westell 327w wireless router/modem. How can i connect the two modems to work wirelessly?


I think the Westell Router/modem that you have must be the modem for the DSL connection.
Charter is a cable internet service provider.
You can not use 2 modems connected to each other.
You have a charter modem , you can purchase a wireless router only.
That will work.

Can't get it configured


Try to reset the router using a paper clip, then try to re-log in to the router with the IP address, If you are still unable to log in , try log as admin as the username and password as admin or admin on the username and password is password.

X-Router Pro (MIH-130) difficulties


If from going to Bellsouth to Charter you went from DSL to Cable, you may need to change the MTU on the router to match what is set on your modem (it's often different for DSL than for other networks)

Cable modem


Go and buy a router. Plug your existing modem into the WAN port and your computers into the LAN port. You could even get a wireless router and connect your upstairs computer wireless. Be sure to lock down your SSID (Wireless Access Point Broadcast Name) so your neighbors or people driving by don't get on and do bad things on your network.
