Just had Spectrum installed at the house. I am using my Netgear CM400 cable modem, and internet works fine, when I connect directly to it. Now I want to hook up my Linksys E7300 router, which was previously hooked to a DSL modem.
Is there a list of the settings I need to use?
I'm speculating the Internet Connection Type should be:
Automatic Configuration – DHCP
Do I need to clone the MAC of the laptop that was hooked up directly, when this was setup?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Auto Config with DHCP is the proper configuration. NO, you should NOT clone the MAC ID of the computer. Just reset the router back to its factory default settings before you connect the ethernet cable to the modem. That will also wipe the old MAC table for both the WAN and LAN ports. The computer will be discovered when you restart the router after the modem has stabilized.
