The MAC address on your router is different from the one on your modem.The MAC address helps define what your IP address is.If you are on an "IP Band List", you must change your IP.This is only possible through changing the MAC address on the router or calling you ISP, if you are not using a router.What I tried:- I tried using IExplorer, Firefox and Opera from my laptop: no success.- I tried from the other 3 computers in my network: no success.- I tried with a direct Dial-Up connection from my computer: SUCCESS.(so the problem was either my router or my ISP)- I called my ISP and they recommended connecting directly my computer to the modem, bypassing the router: SUCCESS.I have changed/flushed my dns, reset the router, the modem, called linkysys, called my ISP, no help whatsoever. The correct answer to this problem is as follows:1. This activates something in the server software that puts your IP address on a so called "BAND LIST". But it is not the correct answer and it costs money to do so.
And I have reset the router to factory defaults a couple of times. Windows firewall(before Vista) only block incoming. With Zone Alarm, it will prompt you whether to allow or deny.
Now turn on the wireless router and wait for it to connect. I know sometimes I have some strange things happen after an electrical storm or a power outage or flicker.
Rick I found the following Firmware update C-Firmware-300.shtml Manualftp://files.au/products/DI-707P/Manuals/DI-707P_Pages of interest in manual 17, 23, 27, 31, 37, 69Rickbartggc, I am having the same problem with the same results using the same tests.
For me, I am experiencing this over a Netgear WNR834Bv2 router. Connect through the Netgear modem, a particular site is inaccessible.
I have experimented adjusted the MTU through a whole series of different values, and still I get nothing. Go to here and download the firmware for your router into the router If you are using security other than WPA, then change the SSID to a different name, this will make it easier to log into.
