Destiny Cable Internet + WRT54G2 = TROUBLE!

Discussion in 'Destiny cable' started by egzbuen, Jul 5, 2009.

  1. Using my WRT54G2 with my internet connection, I simply cannot get it to work properly or flawlessly.

    This is my current set-up: Cable Modem --- wired to ---> WRT54G2 --- wired to --> PC1 but wireless to laptop and PC2.

    Network gaming is fine with the two (2) desktops but sharing internet is not working at all. I may have to power on and off about 5x to 10x and manually release and renew my dns entries/dhcps and even go to dos prompt (via cmd) to do ipconfig /release and /renew before I can even get it to work. I do this everytime I need to connect to the internet. As in everyday!!! Worse, sometimes it simply doesn't work. And when I say it doesn't, even PC1 cannot connect or does not have any internet connection.

    The only solution to this right now just to be able to use the internet is simply disconnect the router and connect PC1 directly to my cable mode. With this, it simply has NO friggin' problem at all.

    To make matters worse, these are the solutions (if you can even call it a solution) offered by Destiny CSRs and their tech support:

    1. "Sir, we do not support wi-fi routers".
    2. "Sir, kahit anong ISP, walang ng su-support ng wi-fi router".
    3. "Sir, i-mo-monitor namin yung connection niyo"
    4. "Sir, sira ata wi-fi router niyo"

    This is one of their interesting reasons or alibi:

    5. "Sir, problem ng Destiny talaga ang dhcp servers namin ngayon. This was a problem last year. It was resolved but now its back but we will do something about it".

    Sad part, when I mentioned no. 5 to other CSR's, this is what they told me:

    6. "Sir, sino yung CSR na nakausap niyo? Dapat kasi hindi sinasabi yang problem na yan. Internal lang ho yan at dapat hindi sinasabi ng CSR sa subscriber"

    Spoke to another CSR to get a second and third opinion, and this was their explanation to me:

    7. "Sir, hindi tutuo ho yan" "walang problem ang dhcp servers namin" and then they go back by giving me reason numbers 1 to 4 above.


    I. Can anyone help me set-up properly my wireless connection?
    II. Anyone whose on Destiny right now who has no problems with using a wi-fi router?
    II. When I do get lucky and get to use my internet with the wi-fi router connected, after using it a few hours, internet connection stops and I have to do all over again the manual dhcp release and renew and the ipconfig release and renew all over again.

    Changing ISP is out of the question right now as I have been to Bayan, PLDT and others but, interestingly, I get the best speed pa rin with Destiny at the 999/month category.

    Thanks in advance.

    sir hindi po talaga supported ng ISP and router... sir try nyo po i mac clone ung router nyo.. anu po b ung configuration ng router nyo? pls post

  3. Sorry, not so techie here. What do you mean by clone mac? How do I do that?

    Will try to post pics on Linksys pag configuration. By the way, which specific page do I need to post?

    What do you mean ISP does not support router, do you mean all ISPs or just Destiny?

    Because as far as I can remember there are two (2) ISPs now selling wi-fi routers with their plan so that you can share connection.

    mac cloning.. entering the mac adress of the PC where the connection is originally set up on the router so that the modem will think that it is still connected on the PC and not on the router :)

    sa umpisa lang maganda ang service ng destiny pero after 3 months magiging panget na then kapag tumawag ka sa Call Center nila kuno ipapasa ka kung kani-kanino hehe. Kaya balik kami sa PLDT so far no prob.

    ayus ah naka pasok pareho.. laptop at pc..
    ilang oras kaya ito?

    manual ko nilagay yung DNS ng provider..

    @egzbuen try mo rin, baka sakali.. observe ko muna yung sa akin.

  13. Is it safe to post here the screen shots of my "ipconfig /all" settings?

    I want you guys to take a look at it and may, just maybe, you can see something wrong with my configuration which can help me detect the culprit.
