WRV210 DHCP Lease failure

Unanswered Question
Jul 30th, 2009

Hello,

I recently purchased a new WRV210 as an upgrade from my old, faithful WRT54G wireless router in order to support multiple ssids. When the WRV210 WAN port is connected to my Speedstream 5100B DSL modem, for whatever reason, I cannot obtain a lease address from the DSL modem. I can put the WRT54G in its place and it functions properly. I can also connect the WRV210 downstream of the WRT54G and it will obtain an address from the 54G. The WRV210 is running V1.16 firmware which appears to be the current release. I've seen similar discussions of people adding static addresses as workarounds, but it would seem to me such a basic wireless router function should be a given, especially since the WRT54G can obtain the address without issue. Any help would be appreciated. I'm about ready to return this thing to the dealer if this issue cannot be resolved.

You may have to copy the mac-address from your wrt54g to your wrv210.  The modem registers one mac-address and locks in on it.  If that does not work you may need to contact your isp and have them reset your modem so you can get an ip address from your modem.

David,

Thank you for the advice. The MAC cloning clue was helpful, but did not resolve the issue. In order to allow the WRV210 to obtain an IP address, I had to update the Speedstream 5100B ADSL modem firmware, reset it to a factory-default state, reconfigure it for bridge mode and rely on the router to provide the PPPoE authentication. I tried several modem authentication modes, but found bridge mode to be the most consistent in this configuration.

Thank you again for your help,

rcbash

UPDATE 5:40 PM 2/7/2011 : Just kidding ... still same issue so I am returning it ... back to the linksys garbageG router I got a box full of them !

rcbash I have good news and bad news

good news: I got it working

bad news: the WRV210 is basicly just the linksysrouter with cisco branding on it and !@#$% firmware ..

I called Charter they where no help

I called cisco nice but after 15min of trying to @#$^ing register ... no help .. I told them I was going to downgrade the firmware and the put me on hold then suggested I run latest firmware and change out the cable ... after explaning to them all the details of the issue..


( CISCO thanks for selling me out to spam  ! I love how you wont help your customers without registering ..... but you will surely sell us out ! I got this email shortly after registering ..

Under Wireless tab,change the wireless channel to 11.Under Advance Wireless Settings..Change the Beacon Interval to 50, Change the Fragmentation Threshold to 2304, Change the RTS Threshold to 2304.Under the Security tab,disable " Block Anonymous Internet Requests ".Power cycle the WCG and then,check...If that doesn't help,you need to upgrade the firmware of your modem..You can get the firmware from your ISP.

Firmware Version: 1.1.17
