Hello, I have Charter Cable and I'm using a Readynet router. I set this up at my previous place and am trying to set it up again. I'm not able to get a dynamic IP address from the router. Everything I try to set up the static IP it gives me this message "to avoid a conflict with your ISP your router's IP address has been updated to" with a different IP address. When I update the static IP address, it changes the IP again. Can anyone help me to resolve this issue?
In order to resolve the issue, you need to manually setup your router's DHCP to get automatic IP from your ISP. This will ensure that you don't get conflicting IP addresses from the ISP.
Step 1: Connect your computer to the router using an ethernet cable, connect one end of the cable to the LAN port of your router while the other end goes into your computer's ethernet port. Wait for few minutes to let the connection to establish.
Step 2: Once the connection gets established, open your web browser and type in your IP address in the URL field and hit enter. This will redirect you to your router's webpage.
Login to your router with the given SSID and password by your ISP. In case your ISP did not provide you with any, the default username is "admin" and leave the password field blank and hit Enter.
Step 3: Once on the page, look for "Internet Connection Type" and select "automatic configuration(DHCP)". Now save the settings and close the Window. You have successfully configured your router to receive automatic IP.
Step 4: Go to "Control Panel" > "Network Settings" > "Adapter Settings" > select IPv4 and choose "Get IP automatically" save the settings and reboot your computer to let the changes apply.
Hopefully, the above-given steps helped you in getting to a solution. In case you have any further query, kindly revert back with your question and I will be happy to help.
Connect your computer directly to your Internet Service Provider’s modem using an Ethernet cable. Using your Internet browser, go through this answer and let us test the Internet speed provided to you by your ISP. If the speed is slow or intermittent, you may want to contact your ISP to activate IP address of a ready-net router.
Let us get Connected to Router but No Internet as stated here:-
Step 1 : When two routers are in a daisy chain configuration, they cannot have the same LAN IP address or one of them won’t work. Make sure the Ethernet cable from your Internet Service Provider’s modem is connected to the WAN port on the router.
Step 2 : Check WAN IP address on the router user interface Status page. If there is no WAN IP address, there may be an IP address conflict with the Service Provider modem or another device on the network.
Step 3 : Change the IP address to 192.168.10.1, reboot your computer and also a ready-net router device, then disconnect Ethernet cable from computer, then try to connect wirelessly and surf.
If no WAN IP address, you may need to set up MAC Clone (for the WRT300N-DD go to WAN>Dynamic IP Setting) in the router’s user interface.
If your Wi-Max device provides an Ethernet hand-off, that Ethernet connection can be used to connect to the router, otherwise the router will not associate wirelessly with the Wi-Max device.
Repeater Mode – D6
Set Up the Ready Net WRT300N-D6 as a Repeater
You can use one or more WRT300N-D6 routers as repeaters with a WRT300N-D6 router as the base. Just follow these simple instructions.
Step 4 :Power up the router you will use as the base station (Base Router). It will be connected to your Internet access point. Connect it to the Internet and make sure it can access and surf the Internet.
Log into the User Interface
Step 5 : Power up the WRT300N-D6 you want to set up as a repeater (Repeater Router). Connect it to your PC or MAC by plugging an Ethernet cable into one of the LAN (yellow- colored) ports on the back of the router and into the Ethernet port on your computer.
Log into the user interface of the Repeater Router by typing ‘192.168.11.1’ into the URL address field in your computer’s Internet browser. A login box will appear.
The User ID is ‘admin’ and the password is ‘pz938qd6’.
Change Repeater’s IP Address
Step 6 : Click on Setup -> Local Network. Change the IP address from 192.168.11.1 to 192.168.11.222 as indicated in Figure 1.
