Specs: Vista Home Premium SP2
Hi
I am having problems setting up my Asus RT-n12 router.
When I hook it up and open the browser it try to obtain the IP address and connection type but it keeps on failing. It then asks me enter the information manually which I do. Now I enter all the information including the IP address, subnet. Etc exactly as it is shown on my cmd under ipconfigall. It still doesn't work. Now am I supposed to enter different values then what I get under ipconfigall or what?
Thanks for the help

What did you get on ipconfig /all ?
Are you connected to the router by wire ?
You should for the first time, to configure your router.
After that, you can connect to your router wirelessly.
All this you can find in the routers manual.

The original poster should always write the last response !!!
Let us know, if the problem is solved !!!

Ya my router manual has nothing on it.
I'll say what I got on my ipconfig/all when I get home, I'm doing this from my iPhone.
Yes I'm connecting it by wire as well. I have a wire going into a WAN from my modem and then a wire going into my computer, which is where I'm trying to get this router to work.
And what do you mean by configuring my router?
Btw, all the ipconfig/all info I use is when my computer is directly connected to the modem, is that the problem? Should I connect to router and then do it?
Also I have shaw high speed Internet, I'm using a motorolla modem and I'm pretty sure it's a cable modem.

Yes. The Modem and Router will produce different information.

AbuAK you would take that information you got when connected to the modem and input that data into the wan interface of the router.

This has to be covered in the routers manual

Do you have the manual?

Before going any farther, connect your pc to the modem and then do a ipconfig /all and post it here for review.

It maybe incorrect to MANUALLY enter this data into the wan interface.

you should set the wan interface to use dhcp

Now if you get connectivity with your pc but not with the routre it could you may need clone your workstation mac address [listed as physical address in the ipconfig] to the wan interface so the isp is thinking its your pc not the router that is connected.

So I need to MAC clone the router?
Because I found a manual of how to do that online.
And what do you mean by set the wa interface to use dhcp?
And if my computer is connected to the modem, it runs totally fine, just that when I connect the router I can't get the computer to connect to the Internet even when I manually set the IP address and stuff, my xbox and the wireless as well.

Do you see in your ipconfig /all the line that says:
dhcp enable =yes?
This means the modem is giving out the ip address.

You set the routers wan port to the same so it gets the ip address. This is standard feature on all routers.

You clone the workstations mac address to the routers wan port. Again this should be covered in the routers docs. Some have a place to manually enter the info. Others have a button to clone the wkst mac address.

Have you logged into the router and looked at the configuration pages?
