|Hey, sorry i have not replied in a while.|
Ok, I have been on and off the phone to my ISP and they said its nothing to do with them because the cable modem is giving out the IP address and the internet works & just because my netgear router is taking the local ip address in the WAN settings of the cable modem local settings its definetely something to do with my router configurations (says the technical team)
I was thinking, would this work:
1. The cable modem has a DHCP server and gives out IP addresses on the range between 192.168.0.2 - 192.168.0.50 what would happen if i changed the router's local IP address to either inside or outside the cable modems DHCP range and then try and setup the static IP address on the router?
Or then try and clone the routers MAC address?
I have at the moment tried cloning/spoofing the cable modems MAC address on the router but when i do, nothing will work..no internet, no connection to cable modem.
My ISP said to picture the cable modem acting transparent.... i thought thats rubbish, how is it transparant if its giving out DHCP address.
