Motorola Surfboard, AT&T Wireless router, Enemy territory Internet problem
Posted on 2004-11-07
Ok, I'm a programmer so software is more my thing than all this hardware stuff. Here's my problem. I recently added an AT&T 6800G Plug&Share Wireless router to my setup. I have a Motorola Surfboard SB5120 and am using Cox HSI. My computer is running Windows XP Professional. I should add here that the router has wired lan ports as well as the wireless capability. My Desktop is connected to the router by a regular ethernet cable, not wirelessly. Here is my problem, after playing Enemy territory my internet connection is unusable. I can still use my browser to connect to my router and modem by using each device's ip. Both show that they are connected correctly. It seems to be a dns problem. I cannot find a way to fix the connection without rebooting the computer. I have tried rebooting both the modem and router, trying to repair the connection for windows, disabling and re-enabling the connection in windows, and releasing and renewing the ip address from the router. By the way, the modem, router, and computer are set to use DHCP. This is the only problem that has arisen after installing the router. This did not happen when the computer was connected directly to the modem. Also, someone suggested I try this DOS command "netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt" . That didn't help either. I realize that this is not a serious problem but it is annoying. There should be a way to fix the connection without a reboot. I will take any suggestions. Thanks.
