I have a DSL Router/Bridge or Cable modem that is already serving IP addresses, and the USR8200 becomes unresponsive when I connect it to the DSL/Cable modem.

Possible Solution:

  1. Connect your computer to one of the available LAN ports. (DO NOT connect anything to the WAN port yet)
  2. a. Create your user account for the administrator if this is the first time accessing the USR8200.

    b. Login if you have already created your administrator account.

  3. Click Network Connections on the Left hand menu.
  4. Click LAN Ethernet.
  5. Click Settings.
  6. Change the numeric value for the circled areas in the following image. Make sure the numeric value is between 2 and 254, and they are the same numeric value for all the circled areas.

  1. Click OK.
  2. Click OK.
  3. Release and renew the IP address on the computer that you configured the USR8200 on. In Windows 95, 98, and Me, click Windows Start and then Run. Type command, and click OK. In Windows 2000 and XP, click Windows Start and then Run. Type cmd and click OK. All Windows users should type
    ipconfig /release
    and then ipconfig /renew. Close the command window.
  4. Connect your DSL/Cable modem to the WAN port of the USR8200.
  5. Connect the remaining computers to the available LAN ports.
