Test the Path From Your Computer to a Remote Device

Network Control Panel. Verify that the IP address of the router is listed as the default gateway.
•Check to see that the network address of your computer (the portion of the IP address specified by
the subnet mask) is different from the network address of the remote device.
•Check to see that your cable or DSL modem is connected and functioning.
•If your ISP assigned a host name to your computer, enter that host name as the account name on
the Internet Setup page.
•Your ISP might be rejecting the Ethernet MAC addresses of all but one of your computers.
Many broadband ISPs restrict access by allowing traffic only from the MAC address of your broadband

that modem. If your ISP does this, configure your router to “clone” or “spoof” the MAC address from the
