    I'm having an issue with getting the Automatic DHCP to work with Roger's Yahoo! internet. I can plug the modem directly into my laptop and access the internet that way. I can also access the LAN through wireless fine as well. The problem lies in the fact that under the 'Status' option, the address fields are empty, meaning the router cannot get an IP address from the modem.

    I tried to clone my PC's MAC, but that didn't work. I updated the firmware, no avail. Roger's is a cable provider, and so PPPoE does not apply, as Automatic DHCP should be the only option.

    Anyone on this same boat? Is this just the router for some reason? I've tried with 2 different ethernet cables, so I don't think it is them.

    Any other suggestions?
  2. I have had this issue before....Unplug everything...router and modem and power off the computer....leave it everything off for a minute or so....power up the modem let all the lights do their flashy thing....then start up the router....then the computer....you may or may not have tried this...I know any time I switch out a router I follow the same steps on my own to no avail....it always seems to require a call into rogers in which we follow the same steps...I am sure they press a button or something to release whatever MAC address they have saved oin their system
