Re: [Cable] noob needs help changing routers

said by hammersmith:

how do i release the ip?
i know how to do it in windows but not on the modem.
i will try to reset the router and set it to dhcp before plugging it in.

Log into your router, go to WAN settings, you'll see it set to DHCP and you should have options to release/renew the IP.

i waited 4 hours and that did the trick ! was it necessary to unplug the power, cable, and ethernet or just the power?
do you know what the usual wait time is?
so for the future, if i want to put another router with the modem, i should release its ip first?
would i have to wait after that or could i just power cycle the modem and attach the new router?
thanks for your suggestions.
