Hi Geeks,

I have a PC with XP SP2 on board. AMD 1.8 motherboard. Runs like a charm.

I've been trying to hook up a Gateway router/modem from Rogers so I can get VOip.

Everything went on fine. But this message keeps coming up preventing the router/modem from hooking up and allowing me to finish the install.

"an error occurred while renewing interface local area connection 6: the RPC server is unavailable."

I spent 3 hours with a Rogers tech and another 3 hours with a Bell tech trying to get this equipment to function to no avail.

We ipconfigged and iprenewed until the cows came home and nothing changed. I plugged and unplugged my router, modem, rebooted the PC dozens of times in different sequences and nothing changed. I "bridged" my Bell router as instructed and nothing changed.

All I want is the Rogers router/modem to be recognized by my PC. Rogers says they've done all they can and suggest I get a tech in. So I'm turning to you.

My machine has Norton Anti Virus on board, it has the MS XP SP2, it is firewalled, it is virus free.

I am trying to run a Bell Speedstream 4200 modem and a Rogers SMC 3001-4 router/modem.

I had a Linksys 2.4 Ghz wireless router on before. Everything worked fine prior to trying to get the SMC going. I need the VOip functioning so I can start my new work.

Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.
