Hi, i just bought a edimax router and i cannot get it working with b/b and i dont know what to do , I tryed ringing TC but u get the usual 50 min wait lady and horrible music for 1 hour.

Right now i have the cable from the cable modem into the router port and and 1 computer works ( we left the IP that TC gave us in there) I try the same on my other pc and it comes up as IP clash (or something alone those lines). I know that the modem ethernet cord goes into the WAN port but then nothing happend some one please help.

You will need to configure your router to have the same IP/Gateway/DNS information as provided by TCL, one which is set up in your PC's network settings.

Once this information is set on the router's WAN settings, make sure the LAN DHCP (server) is enabled, and in your PC's network settings, make sure it is set to Automatic IP address (DHCP).

You should be provided with the following information by TCL:
IP address
Gateway address
Subnet mask
DNS 1 address
DNS 2 address

(If not, take a screenshot, or copy it from the PC that set with it, for safekeeping)

To set up the router's WAN/LAN/NAT, follow the router's manual, or setup disk (if included) or wizard. Most routers are web-based set up.
