New IP Address
« on: March 23, 2015, 08:57:34 AM »
My cable company came in to fix a problem with a digital freeze issue. They replaced my modem and my IP Address. Ever since then I have not been able to login to my dashboard. Any advice would be great.

Is your gateway set for static IP?  If so, you may have to reset it.

If your IP is dynamic, you need to figure out what IP has been assigned to it.

I have found that the best approach to managing IP addresses of network-attached hardware (other than computer systems) such as the TED Gateway is to continue to allow them to use DHCP to get their network addresses but to set up the router to recognize them by their MAC addresses and assign them fixed IP addresses outside the range it uses for connected computer systems. Most reasonably modern routers can do this (it is often presented as a security option). This combines the simplicity of using what is generally the default connection mode for the hardware device with the advantage of having it at a fixed, known, network address which cannot be used by a different device.
