    I have tried it direcly connected (hardwired and wireless) to the zhone. I am wandering if dhcp start address is (router ip address)? opps if it is... whould this cause this behavior?

  • rcp2 Dec 28, 2007

    Thanks for the input, but I tried all that stuff before I fixed it, It had me puzzled big time, but what I did to fix it was I downloaded the config file off another router (same setup with tv and all) and restored defaults (held reset button on back of router) then connected to as i did before and restored the backup config file i downloaded. Now all is well again... To fix the conflict I was having I changed the other routers ip as I can connect to it after changing it... It must be a bug in zhone router???

The problem is y did u change in that way? U have to use same subnet address. Change Zhone's IP address to 192.168.1.X
Then another thing is disable dhcp from the router which is not connected to the PC.
Set the default gateway of the PC to the attached router. Set the attached routers default gateway to the router at the other end.
That will solve your problems.
Please rate the answer.

    Check the IP address settings using ipconfig /all
    (using a command prompt)
    Then check settings and make sure u set the DNS address also. And make sure your IP address is not duplicated( not a problem if you are having a single pc)

Try the configuration connected to the Zhone instead of the linksys.
You can probably configure both from the zhone yet only the linksys from the linksys. I believe routers expect configuration requests from their lan side ports and not the wan port.

    When connected to the zhone do the following

    (assuming Windows XP)

    Start then All Programs then Accessories then Command Prompt
    Enter the following command (1 space after /)

    ipconfig /all

    In the resulting display you should see a default gateway address -- that should be the address of the router you are attached to. If it is not as you expect -- it should give you access to the router.

    If the above does not work statically address the Network adapter in the computer to avoid the DHCP issue and you may then get access to the router.

    iP Address
    Subnet Mask
    Default Gateway

Changed the IP address on Zhone 6218-I2, can't access browser UI.

Go to start -> run -> cmd.
When the window comes up, type: "ipconfig". The address that says "Gateway" should be the address of the router.

If that is too confusing, try the following combinations:

Great problem with router zhone 6218

i assume that you're not prompted with the log in screen. if so, you need to check if your computer is properly connected to the LAN/ethernet port of the router (Note: you need to use a hardwired computer if you want a stable connection while checking your wireless settings) and if it has a valid ip address which shoud be within the subnet of the router's ip address (Note: by default the router's ip address is and "admin" is the default username and password)

if you're not sure of the current ip address of the router. go to command prompt and type ipconfig. it'll list there the default gateway which is the router's ip address.

now if you have checked that the computer has a valid ip address and it is properly connected to the router but you can't still access the router's page, there could be a program that is blocking the connection. try to disable any firewall or any antivirus programs installed on your computer.

hope this'll help you. you can click here for the manual if you would like to read some more about the router.

Zhone linksys router


-- who is your internet service provider
-- what is the operating system of your computer?
-- is this working fine before or is this a brand new router

i have read the same problem on the supportrix forum and you may try this and see if this help solve your problem. make sure your computer is directly connected to the router

Step 1: Shutdown the computer.
Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable.
Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds.
Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable.
Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable.
Step 6: Power on the computer on and configure the router settings
Step 7: test the Internet connection.

if this still didnot work, upgrade the firmware of your router and repeat the same steps.
configuring the router settings will depends who is your provider. if your isp is dsl you need to configure your ISP username (email address format) and password on the router. if your router is a cable no need to change any settings on the router. it should automatically work
