Please follow the above instruction
sorry i have been sick...
I tried removing the usb cable, the local area connection 2 disappears. Why?
Please confirm - you DO have a network cable going from this PC to the ROUTER?
LAN2 was the connection made with the modem.
Do you still desire assistance with your issue or have you found resolution? An update would be appreciated!
sorry guys. Been busy for a while so there are no replies.
I check those stuffs now. Update u guys later on
Router : Ethernet cable that goes to computer
Ethernet cable that goes to modem
Modem: Power cable
Eternet cable to router
Cable to a usb port of computer(Cannot be removed, if so, the LAN2 will disappear)
Current setting is obtain ip automatically and its ip is 169.254.179.203
But you don't want a LAN2. That USB cable is the issue for your connectivity.
Is it possible to get a different modem - no USB cable - or to try as we have suggested - without the USB cable in place?
But i have used lan2 for years now with the router. Can we revert back to the original where i use lan2 and can use laptops also?
Sorry. I do not have another modem
You've been setup and working with a router and a USB modem cabled in for 2 years? Wow - this is a setup I have never seen then.
I'll search around and see what I can find to support continuing your connection in that fashion.
Just try it...
Disconnect the USB cable.
If your cables are now as per post #56 and all is set to DCHP then it will all work!
hey it works now... I just disconnect the usb and i connect it to lan5 and it works. How stubborn was i before...
Its been one long month.
Hey, that's cool!
I understand Stubborn, I am as well. Great when it works though, huh? Glad to hear it!
@Elpmek - thanks for sticking to my guns when I wandered
I'll get this marked as FIXED.
Hope to see you around the forum often, Thrashmetal!
