Hi, I used to have internet connection through QWEST. Now I have Internet connection through Mediacom, which is cable internet. I use a modem called RCA DCM425 as of now. I am aware that this modem is not Wi-Fi, and 2WIRE is. After investigating a lot on the Internet I found out that it is possible to use the 2wire along with the cable modem to provide Wi-Fi. I managed to setup the router once and managed to get on 192.168.0.1, but then it is not allowing me anymore. I wondered where I went wrong, I have the cable modem connected to the router, and have the router connected to the computer. I don't know if I have a static or dymanic ip address, how do I figure that out, and when I have tried pinging 192.168.0.1 it says request timed out. I have copied what I got from the command prompt below and have x out the physical address of my computer.
