Ok. I'm close to giving up.

I'm a PacBell DSL user. WAN. Static IP. Installed the motorola box between my dsl modem and my dlink router. Went with default. No dice.

So I connected direclty to the MTA and set it up with my static IP info.

That got me somewhere, but the box was either constantly flashing (4 blinks) or if I had a steady light (and therefore service), the internet connection coming out of the router was shot. I'm guessing IP conflict?

So I figured I'd change the MTA back to dynamic IP and see if (a) that worked and (b) it'd solve the issue. Problem is, now when I jack straight into the MTA (pc port), and type in 192.168.l102.1, I can no longer connect to it (just get a 404).

IP issue? Box fried?

I spent an hour on the phone with tech support tonight trying various things when the line went dead (other end... guess they're using Vonage?).... couldn't bring myself ot call back and start over from scratch.

Really frustrated and hoping someone will have had a similiar experience and be able to offer up help...

Thanks,

Charlie

Z,

Try restarting the modem when the motorola is connected to it. From personal expirence my modem does not automatically reconize mac addresses when I switch devices to it.

Log ontoyour dlink router and set it to dynamic if its not already. your router can conflict with your mta if the router is set to your static ip.

oh and make sure dynamic ip is enabled for your pc port on your mta. that can also be a problem if you want to get onto it, if its disabled. again personal expirence.

Yes, follow the installation instructions EXACTLY, including the order in which you reboot/repower the modem and MTA. If it still won't work you may have a DOA unit.

Yeah... when I first set it up, I followed the install instructions to a tee.

DSL modem ---> MTA ---> Router

In the call last night with customer service (before the call got dropped), the dude had me switch up the order... DSL modem ---> Router ---> MTA. Doesn't make a difference, I guess?

Anyhow... at this point, it seems like I need to turn static IP settings on the MTA off, and put it back on dynamic IP, but since I can't hit the MTA (even though I'm directly connected to it via the PC jack), I'm not sure how I'd do that.

Pretty frustrating...

Questions:

1. Can you connect your computer directly to your modem and have it get an IP automatically? IOW, is the modem providing DHCP correctly?

If so,

2. If you put the MTA directly to the modem, with the computer plugged into the PC port, can you see the MTA's setup page?

3. Can you set the MTA to obtain its IP automatically?

If so,

4. When you set it to get its IP automatically and reset both the modem and MTA, as the instructions call for, does the MTA finally self-configure?

If not, your MTA's dead, ask for a new one.

Hey, dumb question here: Is there a chance that the WAN plug is setup to need a crossover cable in some circumstances? Just a thought...

Another thing to consider: Some cable modems balk at suddenly facing a new MAC address. According to this faq, you may have to reset your modem by leaving it off overnight in order to have it accept a new MAC. Call your cable company to see if they've run into this (they'd know, as anyone changing their computer's NIC would've run into it).

I too have a PacBell DSL line with a fixed IP address, got my Moto. Voice Terminal tonight and basicly did exactly what you did .... and got the exactly same result.

I started by powering on the box with only a laptop connected to the PC port (not to the DSL modem yet) I accessed the configuration web server at http://192.168.102.1 got the config page, set the IP address and mask - the web server timed out when I did this. After that it wouldn't answer (I'd got the upstream router wrong and wanted to fix it) - tried plugging and unplugging stuff etc etc - the box gives me a DHCP lease so I guess it's still functional but the internal web-server config interface is not talking to me - I figure it's set it's internal routes in some strange way - most routers have a magic button somewhere that resets the internal state - but it seems this one doesn't.

Tried talking to it with Linux/Mac/Windows none seem to work - anyone got any ideas?

well I solved my problem (and maybe yours?) - found this elsewhere in the forum - set your computer's IP address to static (not dhcp) 192.168.102.2 netmask 255.255.255.0 and the router to 192.168.102.1 then you can talk to the webpage again - I bet it does something stupid like annoucing the static upstream router on dhcp rather than it's own IP address (so there's no route in the downstream client)

On the other hand it was a failure as a transparent bridge on my static ip'd DSL connection (between the mail/web server and the dsl modem) - I have a bunch of internally routed subnets behind a linux NAT and it seems happy there - hope you can fix your problem
