|I'm having issues with my internet connectivity when replacing a router. The new router I'm trying use is a brand new out of the box Belkin Surf N300. My cable modem is the Motorola SB 5120 that I've used since I got service from Cox 5-6 years ago.|
When I connect my PC to the cable modem, I have internet access, runs great and everything.
When I put either of my routers into the loop to get the whole house network back up, I can see the other machines on the network locally, but none of them get internet access. It seems the router is not getting a DNS address from the Modem / ISP, and in the router logs I get a constant search for the DHCP Daemon (I get a constant search for the DHCP and then this message "DHCP Client: [WAN]Could not find DHCP daemon to get information").
I've tried cloning the PC MAC address to the router's settings and rebooted the router, and still I get no access to the internet. I've also taken my IP information from when I have it connected to the modem directly and used it to set a static ip on the router to no avail.
Three times I've done something to get internet access (though I don't recall exactly what) that lasts for about 1 minute, is slower than dialup (it feels like it) and within that one minute to connection is lost and I'm back at where I started.
Any help would be appreciated as I'm currently about to rip the hair out of my head in frustration.
