Networking with new Modem

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I just received a new modem from TWC and they tested it on a direct connect from my computer directly to the modem which works fine. The problem is when I try to connect my router in the middle I lose connection and the router wont connect the the internet. I have tried so many things such as resetting everything, power cycling everything, not using a switch, changing out ethernet cords but nothing seems to work. If anyone has any ideas of what to do it would be greatly appreciated.

The Router is a Asus RT-N56U and modem is a Surfboard SB6141.

Everything was working fine (connection wise) before. We upgraded service (free) and he switch out the modem. Didn't notice it until he left that it wasn't working with the router.

Use MAC cloning on the router to spoof the MAC address of your PC onto the WAN interface of your router. This should give your router the DHCP address that was already assigned for the MAC and have your connection work with the router in line.
