Renew IP Address



(Try this if you can't access the internet from the main computer. This is also available in the router settings.)


Windows Key+R type cmd
  type "ipconfig /release"
  type "ipconfig /renew"


Log into your router following your instruction manual or quick start sheet. Follow the configuring instructions.

Remember: configuring for DSL(phone line) and Cable are entirely different.

DSL systems use PPPoE.

Cable systems use Dynamic IP.

[In my area Aliant/Sympatico is PPPoE --- Eastlink is Dynamic IP]

DSL Users - check that you have the correct password from your provider. There are cases where a password is supplied that works with Connection Manager but not with a router. A phone call to your provider will get you a password that makes the router work. Strange huh?
