Hi People,

Bought this AirLive Wireless Router from a friend which was unused by him.

Connected and the book says the interface is

The username/password box comes up and i enter "airlive" for both as per the instructions

and a message comes up saying mentioning something about Slingshot.. which i have no idea what slingshot has to do anything?

Hit the reset, but i don't feel anything "click" just feels like im hitting a wall.. gave it a decent push with my phone's stylus.. the lights didn't seem to flicker any differently.

my old wireless router was an smc barricade.. when that's connected.. you can surf immediately.. when i connected the airlive.. i couldn't surf and thats when i tried to enter the console and hence the resulting error message

i also bought off the mate a dynalink rta1320 modem. i noticed the dynalink's dhcp server had a range from to the end ip is the same as the interface IP needed for the airlive.. so thought that perhaps that may have something to do with it.. i changed the end dhcp end ip to with no change in the problem.

any ideas anyone.. much appreciated.. racking my brains over this one :badpc:

okay.. wierd.. the dynalink shows the dchp table as servicing 2 hosts.. my pc via wired lan and some host called slingshot??? with a distinct mac address and it's own IP

Edit: returned the dynalink to factory defaults and the slingshot host has now dropped off the dhcp table..

reconnected the airlive.. same error message.. :(

ran a diagnostic, there are some fails as per below but doesnt seem to affect surfing/downloading.

Test the connection to your ADSL service provider
Test ADSL Synchronization: PASS
Test ATM OAM F5 segment ping: FAIL
Test ATM OAM F5 end-to-end ping: PASS
Test ATM OAM F4 segment ping: FAIL
Test ATM OAM F4 end-to-end ping: FAIL

the dynalink has a server range of to (i changed the end ip back to since there was no difference).

adsl ---> dynalink rta1320 ----> airlive wireless router ----> wired pc

no internet, cant access the dynalink web interface, cant access the airlive web interfacemy pc has an address of which is the same as the dynalink's web interface?

dynalink direct to pc gives pc ip of

im guessing some setting or settings in the dynalink will resolve this issue

internet, access to 502t web interface, the airlive web login still says:
