I'm trying to connect my router (dlink DI-524) threw my DSL Roderunner modem. I've hooked many routers up before, but with Dlink I'm stomped.
Problem: Get low connectivy error/cant connect to the internet.
Once i go threw the setup, the power light is on, Wan light solid/fast flickers, Lwan blinks, Port 1 is solid, and status has a steady blink.(i've done all the reboot/reset procedures) still nothing.
I believe the IP is the issue here. before connecting the router my ip is 220.127.116.11 Once router is installed it changes to 169.254.35.XX which makes me wonder cause I thought its suppost to be in the 192.168.0.1 range???
I've tried Manually changing my IP with the 192.168.0.1 range and then also used it for my default and DNS. Still no luck.
If anything i just want to be able to connect to my router so i can change the settings. I've try the reset button on the back of the router, no luck. (could the button be broken?)
when i manually change my IP, computer changes to connected 100mbs (i thought this resolved it but no) but i did try to go to my router http://18.104.22.168 and it gave me response error instead of cannot connect. I'm hoping this is a good sign.
This has been a very long week project, i bought this used from craigslist and will probably be the last. If anyone has any suggestions, it will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
