Hi! I have installed an MSI RG54G router. I can successfully ping from the PC to the router, have all the correct IP settings on the router itself, but cannot connect to the internet. The WAN light on the router indicates a good connection. Previously I connected to the internet through an ADSL modem using PPPoE with username and password. Disabling firewall had no effect. Could it be that ISP looks for MAC address of NIC card? How can I replicate NIC MAC address to the router?? Any ideas what could be wrong?
I hink this issue has been resolved by you by now.
if it perists do lemme know about it.
it seems yor router is not configured properly regarding the authentication like user name n password. n i think the MAC address spoofing is also into the picture , mostly MAC add spoofing is done on cable connections but sometimes it can be also used with the "user id n password" together.
For any other issue- chat with me on msn or yahoo messenger my id is samrat101 on both the messngers

Hi if the computer was turned on at the time and you was on the internet then i would suspect that the ethernet or wireless card driver has been corrupted and not the Router, try reinstalling the driver
Take an Ethernet cable, and connect one computer to one of the LAN ports on the router.
Type CMD and press ENTER
Type IPCONFIG and press ENTER
Look for a line of output like:
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 264.468.326.124
Start Internet Explorer
Type http://264.468.326.124 and press ENTER
Login to the Router (ID/password required)
Run the Wireless Networking Setup Wizard,
and create an SSID and create a WEP-key.
depending on who your ISP is, you need an ethernet cable coming from the modem into the WAN/Internet port on back of router. Once that is in you can try to connect wirelessly using the settings your router is setup for :
SSID/network name encryption type encryption key/passkey/passphrase -- this part is dependent on above setting wireless channel
Cable modem or DSL? If cable modem without phone service, modem power has to be unplugged 2 minutes before the router is connected in order to release the mac address from memory. If cable modem with phone service, same thing applies, but battery backup must also be disconnected. DSL modem may require PPPoE setup into router.
Generally you do not install a router onto a PC you connect to a router with a wire using a network adapter or wirelessly with a wireless adapter. Can you any of the following you have identify you make and model of PC, make and model of add-on adapter card? Then I may be able to assist you in determining if a driver exists for the device attached to your computer intended to communicate with the identified router.
