DIR-601, or any other router, quit working with DCM-202
« on: August 01, 2011, 02:16:07 PM »

This is probably a DCM-202 question.

Setup that was working. DCM-202 to  AT&T Micro Cell to DIR-601 wi-fi.

Now I can direct connect MacBookPro to DCM-202 and get internet. If I connect to DIR-601, either via ethernet or wi-fi, no internet. If I try another router, Apple Time Capsule, I get same result. If I just do an ethernet pass thru using the AT&T Micro Cell, still no internet.

Basically, the DCM-202 will direct connect via ethernet to my laptop, but not pass thru an ethernet connection for any other devices.

Verified that all cables are good for direct connect to laptop.

Any ideas?

The DCM should automatically hand off a IP address to the 601 router if you are connecting in the following manor:
DCM>601 router<PC and Micro cell to the 601 router.

I would recommend changing out the cable between each device too, sometimes the cables you get with these devices are not made the best. Get Cat6 is preferred or Cat 5e minimum. Shortest length possible.
