20 Most Recent Microsoft Broadband Networking MN-100 Wired Base Station (M51-00001) Router Questions & Answers

That is a question for you to pose to your new service provider.

All electronic devices will eventually fail, depending on how well they are manufactured and the conditions they are operated under.
Things that will lower the lifespan of a router : high sustained amounts of traffic, being crammed into a tight space where they do not have room to remain cool, poor power, spikes or brownouts can be very damaging to routers. I would suggest making sure it is plugged into a proper surge protector in a well ventilated area.
That said, 5 years is a decent lifespan for such a device, most manufacturers will only warranty such devices for 1 year.
hope this was helpful.

You might try re-setting MN-100 router back to the default setting. Do this by ... look in the back, there is a small hole at one of the ends. I have mine standing up and the (small) hole is at the top. Which you can use a straighten out paper clip and lightly push it in the hole to re-set. The trick to it - is that you have to hold it for a little bit of time. I'm not sure what the time figure is, 5 or 10 seconds something like that ... but the lights on the front will start to blink. Look in you manual, it will show you where the hole is.

To enter the router, type the gateway IP(i.e. in command prompt) by entering xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx in the RUN command . It will open a log in for your router. Default ID is admin & password is admin to. After that change the setting as desired by you, but be careful and for backup you could be in touch with your ISP's customer support exec....sodeep

as far as the game works perfectly online, i dont think you should worry...
the reason you got that message could mean that it assumes you have NAT enabled..!!

Yes, that is possible. Since you have changed providers, you have to reconfigure the router depending on your new provider.

You can try these steps:

1. Turn off the the router, modem and the computer.
2. Wait for 30 seconds then turn on the modem and make sure that all (if not most) lights are stabilize
3. When the lights are stabilized, turn on the router and wait for the lights to stabilize.
4. When both the router and the modem are stabilized, you can turn on the computer and check for the connection.

If it still does not work, you may need to configure the router based on the settings needed by the service provider that you have. If you wish, inform me of the name of your service provider and I will give you the specific settings on how to configure your router.

Hi again,

Sorry it took some time to get back to you. Apparently no, it would seem that each console would need separate IP address from the ISP not only from the router. But then again, that would sound logical since the router make both console appear as one to the ISP which of course would not do.

Delete any unimportant emails. You can start by removing the ones with large attachments. Those tend to hog lots of space.

Hi again XX,

Personally, have not tried game console(s) online, but my kids have. Will ask them and relay info. Should not really be a problem I think, I dont hear any issue from any of them.

To my knowledge, yes. "dial-up internet" connotes standard modem attached to a computer unlike DSL modems (non USB) that are stand alone. Therefore the dial-up internet modem should be connected to a single computer. That PC then would have to enable its Internet Sharing for others in the network to access the Internet. This is accomplished by hooking all the PCs to a single network using a hub/switch. The router can perform this function (hub), however, all the PCs in the network would have to use for their Default Gateway IP address not that of the router but that of the PC with the dial-up internet modem. Having said that, it would then be necessary to use static IP adds in all the PCs. The built-in firewall and DHCP features of the router would not be necessary.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
