I'm having trouble getting internet access. I've just bought a new gigabit router+switch but it seems my cable modem is not allowing internet access when using dynamic setup. The hardware: Arris Touchstone Telephony Modem 402B Linksys 4-port gigabit router RVS4000(EU) (with latest firmware) My ISP (@Home - www.home.nl) requires me to have a dynamic setup (automatic configuration-DHCP), all I have to do is enter the correct hostname. And this has always worked fine with my old router. With the linksys however I don't get internet access, and the router reports "DHCP down" on the status page. With my old 3com router, I get internet access right away. If I use the connection-info from that (IP, gateway, dns, etc) and use that on the linksys router to get a static connection type, it does connect and gives internet access. It seems to only work when I clone the MAC address of my old router, so I power-cycled my cable modem hoping that was going to fix it. But it doesn't, still so far the only option is static+cloned mac address to get internet access. I've searched on the internet about this problem, and it seems there are more people with linksys routers + arris or motorola modems having the same problem on my ISP. Some copy/pasted replies of linksys emails suggest it is somehow going wrong with the hostname, like the modem does not recognise it from the router and denies internet access. These posts were from 2005 though, with older linksys routers. So I'm hoping it's something else. Something I just found while reading these forums: So it seems like this router has the same problem. I'm not sure if my arris modem does that too, but I suspect it does. On older routers it was fixed with a firmware upgrade, how can this newer router have the same type of problem? Any suggestions/solutions? So far the things I've read about this router here are not so great, and if I can't get it fixed in a couple of days I'm probably going to send it back.
