Modem setup, reviews and questions (All brands, including wireless modems)
6 posts • Page 1 of 1
I have recently purchased a Tenda W300D modem router as my old one died. I have set up the wireless network fine and have connected my computer, but it doesnt seem to be able to connect to the ISP. when I check the settings it shows the IP address as 0.0.0.0 even thought I have entered my Exetel username and password. The VPI and VCI settings seem to be correct and I have set it to detect IP address and DNS server automatically. Would anyone know why it wont connect, or what I might have to do to make it work?
In rare instances, changing your Exetel IP in user facilities can fix weird problems. I had one recently where two Billion modems - the customers and one of my loaners - would connect, sit there for 1 minute, and reboot. Changing the IP fixed that. Unfortunately it's happened to the same customer twice on both her home and work connections so she was a little annoyed.
Thanks for your suggestions - in the end it had nothing to do with the Modem settings, just my own stupidity! I had connected the modem to the phone line through a voice splitter, not realising you only need to do this when you have a phone connected. Thanks for your help anyway.
