It will be one of two things or both - either your computer is not setup for DHCP or your router is using the same IP address as your ISP or both.

To check ISP IP address connect your computer to your modem then: from start => run => CMD (hit enter after this)
a command window opens, type "ipconfig /all" without the quotes.
The line with "IP address" gives you your ISP IP addr.
Compare this with what you get from your router manual if they are the same then do the following:

To configure your computer to use a DHCP IP address, go to the Control panel => network connections => Properties (right click on your default connection) => double click Internet protocol (From general tab) => (a new window pops up) from the general tab ensure that "obtain an IP address automatically" is selected.

To change the IP address of your router check your manual and do the following:
IP Addr => 10.10.1.1
Sub net mask => 255.255.0.0
Default gateway => IP address from your ISP
Make sure to the router is set to act as a DHCP server.

You should be up and running.

Router communication with cable modem


If you change service providers, connection type and hardware, then all your previous connection settings will not work, and they'll have to all be reconfigured.

Have you been given a new modem/router (combo unit)?

Did you previously have a separate modem and a separate router?

Do you connect your xbox via WiFi?

Go back to basics now. If your computers connect fine, then connect the xbox using an ethernet cable and see if it works. Then try wireless.

Netopia 3347 moved to a different location/tel number


If you got the netopia in anyone of the 13 states that ATT controls, then that netopia will work in any other state, not just the phone number it was attached to. We are implementing technology now that it will be phone specific, but most people dont have that installed yet.

All you have to do is reset the netopia, open a browser, type 192.168.1.254 and set it up with the new username and password you created when you got your new DSL service.

How can i unlock my router?


Firstly... avoid showing your SSID (eircom-123456789) here, as the WEP key can be reverse engineered from the SSID.

To change your SSID, connect your router to your PC with an ethernet cable, go to your web browser (Intenet Explorer, Forefox, etc) and type 192.168.1.254, and press return.

This will open the control panel for the router.
Select 'EXPERT MODE' from the menu on the right, and accept the warning prompt. Then click on 'CONNECTION' and the 'WIRELESS' on the menu on the right.

In the main window you can then change the SSID for your network.

You can also change some of the other options in this window such as enabling closed mode, change security protocol, password, etc.
