    You should get your own router. ISP supplied routers are terrible anyways. May 3, 2016 at 14:47

    It sounds like your router is actually your modem, which is typically called a gateway not a router.

    @Tetsujin - I made no mention of replacing the modem. I see no reason why (or even how) an ISP could block you from using your own router. You unplug their router from the modem, and plug in yours. The modem doesn't care what it's connected to. May 3, 2016 at 14:53

    They're usually a single box these days, in the UK anyway. You cannot replace it because it needs an auth code, which you can only get by a tech ringing his tech line. This has been the case in the UK since the dawn of ADSL & continues into cable. You can dumb the router down to pure modem, then put a router behind, but the market for those is still tiny over here.

    The device isn't configured correctly. Contact your ISP if your not willng to reset the device or flash the device yourself.
