Linksys router will not pull IP from Comcast modem
Posted on 2008-10-21
I have a Comcast dynamic IP account for my Internet access, it is attached to a Linksys WRT54G2 wireless router. It has been working fine for 3 months and then all of a sudden we couldn't get on the internet any longer. The PC's can get an internal IP from the Linksys, but the Linksys will not pull the public IP from the router. Here are the facts so far:
-I can hook a laptop directly to the cable modem and it gets an IP and can get out
-Once in 5 tries, the router will get an address from the modem, but it is completely different than the one the laptop gets (it is still a valid, public address) and it cannot get outwith that address
- I have reset both multiple times
Has anyone seen this?
