For the last 10-15 days, the setup has been inconsistent.
I'm disconnected from the web. I attach the output from the broadband modem to the router Wan line. Connect another cable from lines 1-4 on the router and attach to desktop / laptop. Try to login to broadband (pppoe connection) but unable to connect. Stays stuck in Dialing and gives error 678.
Tried plugging the cable from the modem into one of the lines 1-4 on the router. Able to log in to the net after signing in.
Tried reversing the cable back to the Wan line on the router and this time it works!!
Try the setup process for the wireless router. Switch off modem, router. Connect modem to router wan line. Connect router line 1-4 to computer. Router is not detected by the computer.
I think the last is similar to scenario 1 where for some reason, the connection does not go through.
I checked the cables and they look fine. Independently, they work fine for other purposes too. Is this some issue with my router?
