i can only access internet now when I plug my computer directly into my modem......will this scenario work?
Network Technician: Kamil Anwar, Certified Networking Engineer replied 3 years ago
You can access internet when you are wired to the modem.
You cannot access internet when you connect to tp-link?
And the issue we need to fix is to make access available via TP-Link?

Network Technician: Kamil Anwar, Certified Networking Engineer replied 3 years ago
Can you connect the router to the modem, and then power off the modem and router both for 5 minutes.
Then power it back on, and connect to tp-link wirelessly and tell me if it picks up the internet?

Hi..........I did ask you asked and it kept trying to connect.......when I finally my computer directly to the modem again it came up with the message: Oops! search.tb.ask.com seems to be having issues........I was using a cisco m10 valet but when I was streaming Hulu Plus and using my internet at the same time it was very slow (my computer)
Network Technician: Kamil Anwar, Certified Networking Engineer replied 3 years ago
Okay. But we were troubleshooting tplink and surfboard.
What were the results of modem -> tp-link -> your computer ?

Customer reply replied 3 years ago

there's a few......do you want to attach to my computer?
Network Technician: Kamil Anwar, Certified Networking Engineer replied 3 years ago
Not yet, let's try here first.
1. turn off the cable modem and unplug ethernet cable
2. wait for few min (5min)
3. turn on the cable modem only and do NOT plug any ethernet cable
4. wait until all the light up on cable modem
5. ONLY after all the light is up. hook up a router behind the cable modem
Then test?
There may also be a battery in the modem, turning off means that it should be completely off, battery out.

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
no luck.......keeps trying to connect, nothing happens......when I connect computer and modem back up again I get Message: "Oops! search.tb.ask.com seems to be having issues." I cannot see where I can take out any battery. Right now I would be happy if I could get my CISCO working again
Network Technician: Kamil Anwar, Certified Networking Engineer replied 3 years ago
May i connect remotely to check this directly?
