D-Link DI-704P Router Troubles
I am setting a home network that will share a cable connection through the aformentioned router. I have a motorola SB4200 cable modem hooked into the wan port of the router. I am trying to access the web based configuration to set it up, but my troubles are far more than just that. In my XP machine, when I set my IP to be dynamically obtained, I should be assigned an IP by the router, but instead I get a 169.xxx.xxx.xxx address. When I set my static IP, the IP is correct. Either way, I cannot ping the router at all. The machine is connected to one of the 4 switched ports on the router. I tried hooking my linux box up, and could not get a dynamic IP either, or ping the router, HOWEVER I was able to bring up the front page of the web configuration but once I tried to get into the actual setup the connection died. This is extremely annoying. I have tried multiple web searches with no luck. Can anyone help???
