Computer Extraordinaire :

Greetings,

Welcome to Just Answer.

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be the expert working with you today to help resolve your problem.

Please, let me know when you are ready to begin.

Computer Extraordinaire :

hello

Customer:

I am ready

Computer Extraordinaire :

As of right now, are you plugged directly into the Satellite modem?

Customer:

No everything is unplugged right now.

Computer Extraordinaire :

ok

Computer Extraordinaire :

Please, follow the instructions below:


- Click Start Button
- Click Run
- Type: CMD
- Hit Enter
- In the black window, type the following and press Enter: ipconfig
- Press Enter
- What is shown for the IP Address, Subnet Mask & Default Gateway?


 

Computer Extraordinaire :

Also, before we begin, I would like to know the brand and model name of your wireless router.

Customer:

Ip: 173.210.164.98

Customer:

Subnet: 255.255.254.0 Default: 173.210.164.98

Computer Extraordinaire :

Thank you for that information.

Customer:

It is an Asus RT-N13U

Computer Extraordinaire :

Is the wireless router new ?

Customer:

Yes

Computer Extraordinaire :

Ok

Computer Extraordinaire :

The setup should be simple. Basically, you plug the satellite modem into the blue plug (the one next to the power), and plug one of the computers into the one of the yellow plugs on the router.

Customer:

Should I do that now?

Computer Extraordinaire :

After you do that, please, complete the following instructions:
- Turn the modem and router off
- turn the modem ONLY on
- Wait 2 minutes
- Plug the power back into the router
- Wait 2 minutes


Please, let me know when that is complete.

Computer Extraordinaire :

Yes, please

Customer:

Hello?

Computer Extraordinaire :

hello

Computer Extraordinaire :

Are you online through the router?

Customer:

No , I had to unplug it to get back to you but it is working now.

Customer:

I couldn't get my IPad to work but it is working now.

Computer Extraordinaire :

When you said "hello?" a few minutes ago, were you through the router?

Computer Extraordinaire :

oh

Computer Extraordinaire :

ok

Computer Extraordinaire :

Ok, so it is working now?

Customer:

It is working now, before it kept saying that I had to have a wi-fi connection.

Computer Extraordinaire :

Ahh... ok

Computer Extraordinaire :

I am glad to hear that :)

Computer Extraordinaire :

Thank you for your time today.

Computer Extraordinaire :

You may click the Accept button on the bottom right of your screen & click Ok now and leave any feedback for me that you feel is appropriate.

Thank you,
- Jason
