my zyxel modem working as a bridge has lost its connection yesterday after a short power outage. it still connects to my pc but it say that there is limited connectivity. i cant access the modems configuration through 192.168.1.1 through telnet or a browser. and pinging always times out. funny thing is, my internet connection still works. i can dial (im using PPPOE) and do all the usual stuff. even the computers on my network can still connect through ICS. do i really need to do a hard reset? or are there other ways?
my 2nd problem is i want to transfer my modem to my switch so that i dont have to use ICS. i tried it before but it doesnt allow my computers to access the net. i can ping some sites using the configuration utility but i cant ping them on the command prompt. so i guess the problem lies on the lan side.
if anybody can give me some advice id be really gratefull.
