I want to add another computer to the comcast router to browse the internet.
I tried to simply plug in the network cable in to the new computer but the new one could not obtain an IP address. I think the MAC of the new comp has to be added to the router's allowed set? Thought companies stopped doing the MAC address blocking.
I think it has to be configured in the router config, so I did ipconfig -all, took the default gateway address (assuming its the router's ip?) and tried to connect it using my browser but failed t load anything. I did http://x.x.x.1
in the browser.
Any suggestions on how to connect to the router to add this new computer's Mac address to the allowed set.
The modem is Arris touchstone modem. I just connect to its config page through http after obtaining its IP (default gateway) from the ipconfig -all command.
