    please direct.
    …thanks

    • Hi, I think your computer may not be be able to get the ip assigned correctly. Go to the ‘run’ box and enter cmd and then press enter – it will open a MS-DOS windows, there type ipconfig and see what does it return as the IPV4 Address. Please reply with this information, then we will sort it further. Thanks.

  2. I have made my modem Wifi as u said. But it do no open all website. opens only google and gmail

    • Just got the solution…………change the MTU value to 1452 instead of 1492 default value in WAN setting.Go to WAN setting then ‘edit’ then ‘next’.Unless u change the value to 1452 u can’t open any secure website.

  3. I have an android phone but I can’t use the wifi from my pc even when i followed all the specifications listed here. My phone is connecting to the wifi but I can’t access the net through wifi. There isn’t any problem with my phone as I can use net through other wifi connections. Please do help.

  4. actually i already have a broadband connection. But previously, wireless wasn’t enabled. Also, my phone can’t recognize the wifi name of this modem. Once I cancel the wifi connection, I have to rename the wifi connection again.

    • Okay, is your broadband modem the same as shown in this article or is it a different model, and when did you last reset it? Resetting the modem to its factory condition solves the issues most of the times.

  5. Hi Riz,

    I am using the same router and hope you can solve my problem. The problem is that when I leave the network authentication open(no key required), it works fine but when I use security key with option WPA2-PSK, upon reboot the wifi access point becomes undetectable on mobile, laptop or any wifi using device. The only solution is to reboot the router and pray that it becomes detectable this time, otherwise reboot again. If its your luck, it is detectable and connects on the first attempt, if its not, you may have to reboot 10-15 times. However works very fine when you leave it open. Please suggest if there is any solution.

    Thanks

    • Hi Garry, Please try resetting the modem to factory condition and then configuring it again with the help of the above setup tutorial. I have also emailed you regarding this issue, please revert with the required information. Thanks !
