Question about D-Link AirPlus Xtreme G DI-624 Wireless Router (DI624RE)
I bought a slughtly used d-link DI-624 router to replace my old one that I think got fried from a power surge in a recent storm. Naturally, it is not under warranty, and I can't afford to pay the price of a new router just for d-link support.
This is my dilemma:
My boyfriend's computer is a PC. Comcast is our IP. We use one of Comcast's DHG 535 modems. I gave a Mac. We didn't have problems with the router before, but Comcast recently changed out our old modem for this new digital one.
Comcast says they recognize the router when it is connected to the modem, but the PC cannot connect to the Internet through the router.
I haven't even gotten to the point to see if my MAC will connect!
Can someone help me? Maybe even send me step by step instructions in case the PC's settings have somehow been changed?
I'll appreciate any help I can get!
Well, this is a very generalized problem that others have, so i'll give you some starting tips. If you can connect when you plug your computer directly into the modem, then it sounds like your modem is bonding to your computer. There are a couple ways to fix this. The easiest is to ask your router to clone your MAC addess (not to be confused with a mac computer, a MAC address is a 10 digit code that uniquely identifies your computer on a network). See the attached image to find where it should be.
Once you set it to clone your machines mac address, unplug the computer from the modem, and plug in the router. If this doesn't fix it, please comment back and we'll try some other things. If it does, then give a good rating :-)
