I am trying to connect a sonos zone bridge music device to my WPN824 router but the router does not recognise the device at all.I have also tried it with a WGR614 router but that does not recognise it either

Hello,Thank you for contacting Just Answer.First, try using a different network cable with the bridge device. If that does not work then check the lights on the network connector of the bridge device and let me know if they light up when the network cable is plugged into the router.
The zone bridge is hard wired to router and router hard wired to modem Sequence of events are : When I plug in zone bridge - white only flashes I have tried three ethernet cables so farWhen i click on software to start connecting - green and white flash together Software then asks to press button within 2 mins - green and white flash intermitently for about 15 seconds then they both flash together There is no screen message saying connecting at all and the green time elapse bar continues for the full duration. Then message apppears that ZP was not found
Next login to the router administration pages and check the list of devices connected with DHCP address or Connected Device status if your router provides that as well and let me know if the bridge appears in the list.
Hi All the attached devices are listed below but I am not sure exactly which is which. It is 1 o clock in the morning uk time so i am going to turn in quite soonAttached Devices# IP Address Device Name MAC Address1 192.168.1.5 RAINBOW1 00:26:18:50:9E:502 192.168.1.3 00:13:CE:DA:31:343 192.168.1.4 00:0E:58:41:B7:32I have shown also other data from the admin pages in case that is of any help as wellRouter StatusHardware Version WPN824v3Firmware Version V1.0.7_1.0.8Internet PortMAC Address 00:1E:2A:E2:4B:B0IP Address 184.108.40.206DHCP DHCP ClientIP Subnet Mask 255.255.252.0Domain Name Server 220.127.116.11 18.104.22.168LAN PortWireless SettingsWireless NetworkName (SSID): Region: Channel: Mode: Security OptionsNone WEPWPA-PSK [TKIP]WPA2-PSK [AES]WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES]Security Options (WPA-PSK)Passphrase : (8-63 characters or 64 hexdigits) MAC Address 00:1E:2A:E2:4B:AFIP Address 192.168.1.1DHCP ONIP Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0Wireless PortName (SSID) NETGEARRegion United StatesChannel 6Mode Auto 108 MbpsWireless AP ONBroadcast Name ON
Ok so how many devices do you have connected to the network? Is there one with a static IP address of 192.168.1.2? (this IP is not listed)
I think the IP address's are as follows192 168 1 1 is Router WPN824 192 168 1 3 is a wireless connected laptop 192 168 1 4 is printer and 192 168 1 5 is my host computer called rainbow as far as I can establish192 168 1 2 does not show up anything being connected.regardsJohn
Ok then next click Start, Run and type CMD and press Enter. Then on the command line type:ping 192.168.1.2and press Enter and let me know if a reply is received.
YES I dont understand dos but IT WAS SOMETHING LIKE 4 PACKATS SENT AND 4 PACKETS RECEIVED
Ok good. The fact 4 were received means that the IP address is assigned to something and my guess is that its the bridge. So next restart the modem then after a few minutes restart the router then restart the bridge and the PCs and then let me know if starts working properly.
have done all that before and no joy
Next disable the firewall that is part of your antivirus software and the Windows firewall and try again to connect.If the above does not work then follow the steps below to enable Universal Plug and Play on your XP computer (note this is in the second section at the link below) and then try again to connect to the bridge:http://www.bitwiseim.com/wiki/index.php?title=Using_UPnP_on_Windows_XP
