We have just moved to a new apartment and here we do not have a standard telephone connection, but a RJ-45 network connection. This connection has internet already enabled. I therefore configured my wireless ADSL modem to use bridged mode, and this works perfectly.
The problem is that once or twice a day the connection stops working, and the only way to get it to work again is to restart the modem using the control panel under 192.168.1.1. The problem for that though is, that I can not connect to this IP-Address unless i first restart my computer (Windows 7). After i restart both the connection works again.
I am assuming I have somehow incorrectly setup my bridge? Or that the connection dies after a new IP-Address is forced by the service provider?
Any tips would be appreciated.
- Modem - TP-Link TD-W8901G 54Mbps ADSL Modem (Latest firmware)
- Windows 7 64bit
- Wireless Adapter Atheros AR928X
My PC receives a public IP from the bridged connection. When the connection dies I can access the control panel if i manually reconfigure my IP-Address to 192.168.1.xxx. Then I am able to restart the modem, and my connection works again without having to restart my computer.
Additionally using a standard internet router, I do not have this problem. It automatically reconfigures itself when a new IP-Address is required.
I would prefer to use the ADSL Modem/Router though as it's wireless speed is much higher than my old internet router. I therefore still want to try to get my ADSL Modem/router to work.
