I have a WRV200 that does not seem to be sending the internet connection through to the desktop computer. I've confirmed that the modem works by directly connecting the modem (bypassing the router). I've also been able to log into the router to confirm that the desktop computer can connect to the router. The modem lights also seem to indicate that the modem and router are communicating fine (ethernet light comes on when router connected.
I've rebooted more than a dozen times (router, modem, & desktop computer). I've replaced modem as well, assuming that was the problem - which it was apparently not.
What's my next step in the journey of discovery?
I'm direct through the modem right now - so the WRV200 is not active and I cannot check it live while online.
If your modem is issuing a 192.168.1.x IP and your modem is 192.168.1.1 it means it has a route function providing a NAT. The WRV200 has 2 distinctive ports, the internet port and the ethernet ports. In the end it means if your WRV200 LAN subnet is 192.168.1.x, the traffic out the WAN can't route because it already hit the destination network (itself).
So the first step would be to change the WRV200 to 192.168.2.1 (192.168.2.x subnet), request will then NAT to 192.168.1.1 then your modem will turn the 192.168.1.x subnet in to your public WAN for internet.
