Problem with the 2 wire 3800 HGV-b router: This router has 4 ethernet ports, with nothing plugged into any of the ports, port 2 has a green light on solid. When I plug my computer into port 2, and try to establish a connection from the PC, it tell me that there is no cable plugged into this port. When I plug into any of the other 3 ports on this router I get a connection, DHCP sends the PC its address, gateway, and mask, everything looks OK, except I cannot ping the gateway address. I have turned off the firewall, making sure not is stopping traffic. I have wireless PC connected to this router that are working fine. The other problem I see is when I log into the router it looks like every thing is connected to port 2. My PC is currently plugged into port 4.
choban - Port 2 could be defective. You have to decide if it is worth working through. If you call in, it could be tested remotely & they could send you a new RG. Maybe a 3801. Or, you could try a pull the plug reboot.
