Hello. Today I bought a new router D-Link Dir-100. When I connect it and the plug my PC in I can't connect to the net. I tried to clone some settings from my previous one [Asmax br-604] but it didn't help in any way. I found somewhere that the first computer that should be connected to the routher, should be the one that the main internet cable was pluged in the first time. But it was a guys pc and he doesn't live here anymore. I just came here, found the router and connected, everything was fine. But now with the new one it isn't. I have the mac from the previous guys card, is it in any use? Please help if possible :(
Are you trying to use the D-Link Dir-100, at the location you are at? If so, use the settings that your ISP has given to you. IP, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, and the DNS settings. I can help understand how to you to enter those settings.
If you are not trying to do that, ok.
After you log in to the router, first go to Status -> Device info. Make sure you are not Double NATTED. WAN IP displayed here, must not be one of the following:
a) 10.0.*.* to 10.255.*.*
b) 172.16.*.* to 172.31.*.*
Then if you are not Double NATTED, go to Setup -> Internet.
Press manual configure. For a public static IP, select static IP. And enter the settings that your ISP has given to you. And then press save settings.
For a PPPoE/PPTP/L2TP Static IP, select your connection type. Then select Static. Then Enter your user name, password and the other settings that you have been assigned.
For DHCP, you see where it says MAC address? Enter the MAC address of the guy's computer. And then press save settings.
If you are Double NATTED, which I doubt you are, please post.
Well when I look at my Asmax br604 it sais that the WanIP is in the range 192.168.*.*. I've written the message to the guy who gets the money for th einternet and he sais that my Ip is set to 192.168.0.1. The system gets all other data from "him". I managed to spoof my MAC so it is the same like this guy using SMAC but it didn't help. The emulator look almost the same like in DIR-100. I heared that something could be wrong with some TTL function witch I don't have in DIR-100.
I just swich to Asmax to have a connection - but I would like to use the D-link and throw the Asmax away. I don't connect them both to eachother. I know that the firm that provides the internet has some kind of a main router on the buidling and divides it there. That's why You get the static IP and i have the dynamic one. What I don't understand is why I can't connect to the internet [browse pages, etc.] when I use the D-link DIR 100 instead od Asmax Br604 :/
Hmm.. Where abouts are you? In an apartment, in college?
When you using the Asmax Br604 what was the WAN IP as displayed in the router? If you don't know what I mean: After you log-in to the router. Take a screen shot of the first screen that you see, and post it here.
#1 Set the computer to use DHCP and spoof / clone the MAC Address. Be sure after doing this, to reboot the router. In your case that means turning off and back on the power to the router.
#2 You setup a static IP using the same settings that the Asmax Br604 was using, but before you do that...
You must make sure that the first three octets don't match. For example, if the LAN IP 192.168.2.1 the WAN IP can not be 192.168.2.1 also. You must change the LAN IP to something else, such as 192.168.3.1
