My son installed dd-wrt software on our e1000 router. I just had a cable guy here who thinks the network is not setup correctly, but couldn't give me more information than that. I have a wireless laptop computer, wireless desktop computer, 1 wireless printer, 1 wireless print server, cable phone, a roku box, and a Kindle (wifi).
We've had trouble with the roku box since this new software was installed on the router. We tried a couple of times to setup port-forwarding but each time we use the IP address of the device in the setup, the address changes. The cable guy says my laptop for example, is set to obtain IP address automatically, while the router is set for DHCP with starting IP address, and 30 maximum users. There were static DNS addresses which the cable guy talked me into removing. I wrote down the numbers that were in there just in case.
I was wondering if there was anyone out there who knew about this and could help me get it setup properly while also explaining to me what we're doing,
