Re: [Equipment] Setting Up Netgear Modem - Not Acquiring IP Addr Thanks for the posts I have all those settings confirmed. In a nutshell the issue I am having is it appears that certain website(s) are being blocked or I am being blocked. My smart TV all of a sudden stopped accessing the internet after a day of using it (Samsung TV) and I cannot access www.samsungsupport.com However, when I use my neighbors internet (different IPS) I can access the site and the TV works. I can access the site from my network when going through a proxy site... so I am confused. I have reset the 4200 and was hoping getting a new modem would help. However, I am returning the Netgear modem and getting a new ISP as I give up.
Any other ideas on the whole blocking issue? Windstream states that they don't block or filter anything. I am currently bypassing my router and am connected straight to the 4200.
The website problem could be a DNS issue. You could try entering in the IPs for Google DNS: »developers.google.com/speed/public-dns/
