Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX thank you for giving me the opportunity to help you with your networking question.
What is the brand and model number of your router?
Can you also tell me the model number of your gaming device please?
Thank you - sorry for the delay. Your adapter is a bit new to me...
Use the computer directly connected to the router and open Internet Explorer. Enter this address:
A login screen will appear:
Once logged in, click LAN/IP Setup, under Advanced, then change the IP Address from 192.168.1.1 to 10.10.10.100 - save the settings and exit the setup of the router.
Run the MadCatz installation disc - you should be able to get through the setup with the Pin method...
Okay - are you using wireless security, meaning a password XXXXX connect to your wireless network?
Out of curiosity, what made you choose the Mad Catz device over the Xbox adapter?
Thank you - if you enter this address in Internet Exlporer (make sure the mad Catz is powered on), do you get the login screen for the device?
Okay - let's try this a different way...
Disconnect your Desktop computer from the router, then connect it directly to the gaming adapter. Run these steps:
In the Search Bar, type ncpa.cpl then hit enter
Right click Local Area Connection, select Properties
Click IPV4 TCP/IP Protocol, then click Properties
Change the IP Address settting from Automatic to manual settings and enter these values:
IP Address: 10.10.10.50
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 10.10.10.1
Save the settings, then run your installation cd. Use the Web Based Utility option to complete the setup - can you finish it this way?
When you ran through the installation cd the last time, which part did not work?
When going through the installation cd, when you click on the Web Login page, do you get a username/password XXXXX?
If you run these steps on the desktop computer, is the IP address still 10.10.10.50?
Okay - other than the steps I had with changing the address of the computer, then running the installation, I'm not sure how else to get this working for you.
Let me opt out to open this up to other experts for you.
I will check in and keep researching this for you...
If you guys need help, let me know. I'm still going to dig into this a bit more for you.
When you have some time, can you tell me how many other devices you have on your network and what the model number and brand of your modem is?
Of course. Anytime that works for you.
Thank you again and have a good night!
