What is the brand and model name of your ADSL router that you wish to use?

150Mbps wireless N [email protected]+ modem router

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
its ADSL2+ modem router
default setting ip 192.168.1.1
Network Technician: Jason Jones, Network Technician replied 2 years ago

This will require a bit of configuration on your part. You will need to first share the Internet connection from the wireless card to the Ethernet port, plug the computer into one of the LAN ports on the modem, disable the DHCP server on the ADSL modem, and change the LAN IP on the modem to something that fits in your subnet. Thank you for the update. May I start a remote screen sharing session with you so that I can better help you resolve this problem? When the remote begins, a chat window will appear that we can use to communicate with each other.

sorry i can not allow you to come to my pc for privacy reasons but you can explain me here , i will do exactly the same
Network Technician: Jason Jones, Network Technician replied 2 years ago

I have remoted into computers several thousand times with no issues, but I understand your anxiety.

What do you know how to do already? Do you know how to log into the modem, change the LAN IP on the modem, and disable DHCP on the modem?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
let me tell you what i have done.
as i mentioned my router has no Ethernet WAN port, so in this case i have to share internet by using one the routers' LAN port.
so i connect pc to router LAN using ethernet cable. and then after the connection establish, i opened network and sharing center and go to wireless adapter properties then allow sharing from the local area connection(ethernet connection).
and i also disable dhcp and change the default gateway from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.0.11 (my friends router's default gateway is 192.168.0.1), then i restart my router , and then in my mobile phone it stuck on "obtaining ip address" but my mobile cant be connected to the router
Network Technician: Jason Jones, Network Technician replied 2 years ago

I am not sure I understand what you have done. You changed the LAN IP address on the router to 192.168.0.11? That will not work. You need to change the router's LAN IP to the subnet of the Ethernet port.

- Hold down the two following keys at the same time: Windows key and the letter R
- In the box that comes up, type: cmd
- Click the Ok button.
- In the black window, type the following and press Enter: ipconfig
- Press Enter

Network Technician: Jason Jones, Network Technician replied 2 years ago

That means that the Internet Sharing is not enabled. Did you share from the Wireless adapter of from the Ethernet adapter.

Ask Your Own Networking Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
i have disabled sharing , and reset all as before.
now tell me what i have to do now.
i have to turn ON the sharing in wireless adapter profile ?
Network Technician: Jason Jones, Network Technician replied 2 years ago

I was under the assumption that it was still enabled. Yes, enable the sharing on the wifi adapter.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
ok, i selected the " Ethernet" into home networking connection: , and also check marked - allow other network users to control or disable the shared internet connection
Network Technician: Jason Jones, Network Technician replied 2 years ago

No. You need to do that to the Wireless connection because you are 'sharing' the connection from the Wireless adapter. Disable sharing on the Ethernet port and enable it on the wireless adapter.

Thank you. Change the LAN IP address on the modem to 192.168.137.250 with the subnet of 255.255.255.0

After that is saved, make sure to disable the DHCP server on the modem.

Make note of that IP Address. You will need it to make any changes to the modem.

After you do that, you can simply plug another computer into the modem and it will access the Internet.

I look forward to hearing your feedback concerning whether or not your problem is fixed.

I hope to hear back that all is working. If this is so, please do not forget to rate my help on the top of this page (choose the number of stars and click the Submit button). If it is not, please respond below.

Network Technician: Jason Jones, Network Technician replied 2 years ago

You must have the computer plugged into the modem. That is how it works. The wireless connection is shared from the computer, to the modem via the Ethernet cable.

What problem did you have before? Before, you didn't have it setup correctly at all. Now it is setup correctly. You must leave the PC connected to the MODEM.
