Weather Direct gateway does not get address
« on: April 26, 2010, 06:43:05 PM »

I can't get my Weather Direct gateway to obtain an address when connected to my router.  If anyone is familiar with this, I get the 2 blinking red light that means the gateway is not getting an IP address from the router.

http://www.weatherdirect.com/help/gatewayhelp.aspx

I have talked to technical support from Lacrosse and they have even sent me another gateway, but I get the same two blinking red light. 

DHCP is enabled and no other device I have (several - both wired and wireless) has a problem connecting. 

What should I be looking at?  What can I try?

Have you figured this out yet?? I have the EXACT SAME ROUTER (DIR-65) and the same WeatherDirect Gateway problem....I thought I was going crazy until I saw your post. Please let me know if you found a way to resolve this. I am at a total loss as to how this can be possible?!?!

Are you doing any MAC address filtering on your router?

OMG...I didn't even think about that. Yes I was doing MAC address filtering, and I didn't put the MAC of this device in. It is not listed on the device, so I had to turn off MAC Filtering, and then do an ARP -a command in Windows Command Prompt to find the IP of the device as it booted up, and then I could see the MAC address of it. Once I added it to the list and re-enabled MAF, everything worked just fine.....Dang! Thanks for the heads up!

Open a Command prompt and type arp -a

This will show you all the IP addresses that your computer sees and it also their MAC address.

It shows me 8 addresses and I have only 1 computer  3 of them  start 192 2 with 224  1 with  228 1 239 and 1 225 that would be the DNS right?  Sorry for the dumb question.
