TWC wireless modem bridged to my rt-n16, wifi keep shutting off

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
ok, so i added home phone to my roadrunner service. They gave me a arris tg862 wireless modem. When i initially set it up, I bridged it to my rt-n16 router. everything worked fine for about 30 mins, then i lost wifi. I logged into my rt-n16 and it said wireless was disabled. I enabled it an it worked great for another half hour or so then did the same thing.

Sooo i tried to log back into the modem/router twc supplied and the default password was now invalid. I reset the router and rebridged, same results. then i couldnt log back into the modem. I called TWC tier 3 tech support and they told me my modem was bridged and i could "hook any router to it and have no problems" I asked them about the password and they told me they didnt know it (i call total bs there, once the modem is connected to the coax for 5mins the password changes).

now, my wired connection works fine except i have NAT disabled on the port for my xbox, and now when i play a game on xbl it tells me i have NAT enabled. That tells me that the modem is not bridged and is still doing some routing.


anyone have any ideas on where i can go from here? I'm about to tell them they can have there phone and internet back

Upgrade to the latest firmware, or better yet install dd-wrt or open-wrt etc on the asus router. Is there a reason why your not just using the modem/router without the asus router?

Port forward the required ports for the xbox to get it running properly.

Here's the kicker, twc won't let me log into the router. I can hard reset their router and log in right when it comes up, then once the internet connection is established they change the password and take control of the settings.


And I am running tomato on my Asus router, my Xbox is port forwarded, the problem there is they change their router settings.


As far as the WiFi issue, I think their router is telling my router to turn. WiFi off. At least thats how it acts
