Cisco RV042G not receiving an external Ip via a bridged modem
This post is about Cisco RV042G not receiving an external Ip.
I have a D-link DWR 923 4G modem/router which I have used for a couple of years. I know want to use my new Cisco rv042g for dhcp in the lan also Vpn from the outside.
So I changed my Dlink to bridge mode and connected a cable from its wan port to the port called Internet on the Cisco. The small lights start flashing green and in the GUI it says connected.
I then connect a pc to the lan port on the Cisco, everything is fine and I get the local ip.
Here is where to problem starts, I can't connect to the Internet. When I go to the GUI of the Cisco there is no ip for the port wan1 in the status menu. Is only says IP address 0.0.0.0. When I go the logs it says:
The wan/internet port on my Cisco is set to "Obtain ip automatically"
"Wan connection is down " and "timed out waiting for a valid dhcp server response"
But when I take the cable that goes from the Dlink and plug it straight in to a pc I work and I get the external IP address.
When i reset the Dlink to regular router mode (not bridged) and plug from the Cisco wan port to the Dlink Lan port i get a local ip straight away.
Here is what I have tried to fix it:
1. Turned of Dlink and Cisco for 5 hours. 2. Getting my operator to reboot the line 3. Tried entering the operators DNs ip in the Cisco n 4. Tried cloning the MAC address of the of so that the Cisco uses the pc:s Mac. 5. Turning of the firewall on the Cisco. 6. Changed mode on the Cisco from gateway to router. 7. Resetting all decides multiple ones.
Please help :( I've been working with the for soooo many hours.....
