    A very newbie question regarding modem and router IP address

    Yeah I have also seen some posts on the net about issues with this particular device.. Yes I have tried all the lan ports 1-4 and its all the same. As far as I know no my ISP doesn't use a secondary WiFi Ap. And when it comes to Dhcp I have also been suspecting this about renewal times but the...

    A very newbie question regarding modem and router IP address

    Yes to both questions. As I said after 1-3 days internet becomes extremely slow/unstable, it happens to both wired and wireless connection so it means the whole connection is going haywire somehow. Yes, to fix the connection temporarily for 1-3 days again, it's enough to unplug the ethernet...

    A very newbie question regarding modem and router IP address

    What does MAC cloning do exactly? Yeah I have factory reset both several times and started from scratch etc. I don't think I have a line issue though since if I use only my ISP modem/router alone everything works perfect, but when I use any external router then connection becomes bad after a...

    A very newbie question regarding modem and router IP address

    No worries. Yeah the Wifi is turned off automatically when I enable bridge mode. Yeah I enter my routers Web interface via 192.168.x.x without problem.

    A very newbie question regarding modem and router IP address

    What happens to me is that my Internet connection works perfectly for ~2 days then suddenly it slows down to a crawl and becomes unusable, can barely open a website etc. To fix it temporarily what I do is I just unplug my ethernet cable from the back of the modem and plug it right back in then...

    A very newbie question regarding modem and router IP address

    As far as I know though, isn't it always advised to put your modem/router combo in bridge mode when you connect another router to it? So that there won't be any NAT issues etc.? I have a Sagemcom Fast 3890V3 modem/router (from my ISP) and a Netgear Nighthawk XR500 connected to it.

    A very newbie question regarding modem and router IP address

    Umm..if I take my modem/router out of bridge mode then my own router gets 192.168.x.x yes however when I enable bridge mode then I get something that is very similar to my Public IP adress from the ISP but not the exact same one. So this is wrong? In bridge mode, I should get 192.168.x.x...

    A very newbie question regarding modem and router IP address

    Hi all, I have very basic IP question since I'm no expert in networking and since I'm troubleshooting a big network issue at home I wanted to know something just to make sure. If my modem/routers public IP (from my ISP) is let's say (made up by me now) 74.123.12.321 What should my own router...

    Is this a modem problem or is it something else? Need help.

    Yeah that's my last resort however I really like using my own router especially since I bought a brand new one just recently (Asus ac86u) with so many features compared to shitty ISP one :( and all these years I had the same ISP with different modems from time to time but always with my own...

    Is this a modem problem or is it something else? Need help.

    I did call them two weeks ago, they did a signal check and all was fine however when I put it back into bridge mode the guy on the phone said he could not access the modem etc As far as I know I don't need any ppoe creds, never needed all these years and it was working flawlessly. Edit: all...

    Is this a modem problem or is it something else? Need help.

    Yes I see. However I'm just wondering how they can fix it though? I mean what do they have to do technically so that dhcp renewal is working properly?

    Is this a modem problem or is it something else? Need help.

    Yeah I see. However running my ISP's modem/router without it being in bridge mode will not cause any conflicts with my Asus router?

    Is this a modem problem or is it something else? Need help.

    Btw a quick question; would putting an unmanaged Switch between the modem and my router solve the renewal issue?

    Is this a modem problem or is it something else? Need help.

    Will do. My ISP's modem/router is this one btw Sagemcom Fast 3890V3. The previous model didn't cause any issues but like I said they gave me this new one November last year after they upgraded the lines.

    Is this a modem problem or is it something else? Need help.

    So after I do all these, i should not put the modem back into bridge mode again?

    Is this a modem problem or is it something else? Need help.

    Yes I put ISP modem/router to bridge mode however it didn't solve the issue it's still happening. The Asus router is handling the renews however the problem it seems is caused by that the Asus router cannot get a renewed IP after the lease time of 52 hours is over.

    Is this a modem problem or is it something else? Need help.

    I think I just found out that this is exactly the problem. Ok so first of all I changed my ISP modem with a new one just to make sure that it's not an hardware issue. However the connection issue happened again after 2-3 days and then when I checked my Asus routers log I see this: "dhcp client...

    Is this a modem problem or is it something else? Need help.

    Actually it was me who rebooted the router so that my connection will work again. It is updated with the latest firmware, also it's a brand new Asus router ac86u, and like I said the issue happens with three different routers I tried. Restarting the modem without restarting the router also fixes...

    Is this a modem problem or is it something else? Need help.

    How can I check though if the renewal of leases causes a conflict or something? On the Asus router (both the new one and the previous one I had) it is defaulted at 24h lease times, and never had any issue with it. I have like around 13 devices that connect to the router at home, 24h should be...

    Is this a modem problem or is it something else? Need help.

    Yes the problem started with the new arrival of the modem/router combo. I've tried different wireless routers I had at home from before so with all of them the same thing is happening. However I also bought the new Asus ac86u to make sure that at least I have a new and good wireless router. The...

    Is this a modem problem or is it something else? Need help.

    Okay it happened again now. So this is what I did to troubleshoot, and I really can't find the root of the problem. First of all this is my setup: ISP modem/router(in bridge mode) ----> Asus ac86u router ----> network switch Netgear with 8 ethernet ports that I use. One single ethernet cable...

When it happens, I can barely open a webpage on my PC, or any other device. I got a new and upgraded modem/router combo...
