DSL Extreme + Speedstream 4100/5100 = ??
I have a confusing problem and I think this is the best forum to post it in. Here's my setup:
Speedstream 5100 (version A, I think)
I recently switched to DSL Extreme (DHCP) and everything has been working well - great speeds for gaming and Netflixing. However, I wanted to explore 11n and tried a D-Link DIR-815 and also a Netgear WNDR3400. The Speedstream 5100 is setup as a bridge and neither the DIR-815 nor the WNDR3400 will receive an IP address from the Speedstream 5100. I took the DIR-815 over to my sister's house, who has cable internet (not sure of the modem) and it works wonderfully as expected. So, thinking that it was my modem, I borrowed a Speedstream 4100 to test and the WNDR3400 still won't pick up an IP address from the Speedstream 4100.
I'm picking up a modem from DSL Extreme soon (Comtrend 5071T) and hopefully that works...but if it doesn't, I'm not sure what else to test. Any ideas?
What modem were you using when "everything has been working well"
If you have a 5100a that modem has no configuration options that can be changed
If you have a 5100b or a 4100 dsl modem the bridge mode setting is on the ppp location page
ppp location page
Thanks for the reply wayjac. My working setup is as follows:
D-Link WBR-2310, with DHCP internet connection
Speedstream 5100, bridge mode
I tried the following combinations with no luck:
Speedstream 5100 + Netgear WNDR3400
Speedstream 5100 + D-Link DIR-815
I also picked up a Comtrend 5072T from DSL Extreme, here are my results (5072T is in bridge mode):
5072T + WBR-2130 --> internet works
5072T + WNDR3400 --> router doesn't pick up WAN IP
I'm sure I'm missing something, I'm just blinded by annoyance. If there's something I haven't tried, please let me know.
Hi s_mcflurry -
I would recommend going into the Members section of our website (»www.dslextreme.com/members and increase the number of DHCP leases to the max 5. It may be that the new device isn't getting an IP address assigned as you have used up the max assigned DHCP leases when switching between devices.
Will work for reviews.
That seemed to have done the trick! As an extra measure, I used the DSL filters provided with the Comtrend 5072T and now I'm online! Thank you very much, George.
As a side question, how would I "unbind" IP addresses from the devices in my house? I'm unable to find that option in the site.
By the way, I am very satisfied with the DSL service from DSL Extreme. I now have twice the speed for less cost and I had zero downtime during the transition. Thanks again to you and your crew!
The IPs will automatically drop out of the system after a a device hasn't been connected for a certain amount of time. That time varies per area but it is typically a few hours.
Glad to hear that everything is working well. Please be sure to place a review on this site to share your experience with others. »/docontrib/ISP/1434
