My first bridge didnt have any lights so now have a replacement and its now lighting up when attempting to talk to my dlink router so I am now on square 1 ..

Now have logged in and added the bridge with details but its come up as "frozen" on the my.currentcost gui ..(username = citrus)

Now I am on virgin and have this router (dlink DIR-615) ...alas I am not a networking expert ...so please bear with me ....

Now I have logged on to the router page and ticked the

25 - DHCP Reservation
and added in the mac address of the bridge and given it an ip address in the range

Please see attached router config.

Been through power cycles of the bridge and the dlink router but seemingly cant connect.

Any ideas what is wrong ..did I miss some killer schoolboy trap in the docs ?

Thanks in advance

Citrus

Can I guess that the bridge is sending in requests but the router sends offers the bridge can't accept ?

Looks like its got its knickers in a twist ...any suggestions ?

(you'd think by ticking that box the router would give the bridge only 1 ip !!)

Just to confirm, you are using the power unit which shipped with the bridge and it is plugged into the bridge?

Also, the old display power unit is not used and the envi or envir only has the white cable plugged in connecting it to the bridge?

Assuming the above is correct other than trying a power cycle of the bridge I would email helpme [at] currentcost .com

The bridge should just DHCP itself without you even having to look at your router...

yes have used the right power adapter (removed the one plugged into the display) .. the display works fine (being powered by the white cable from the bridge)

have pinged mail to helpme guys ...so will sit and wait

.... its a bit frustrating tho ... I ordered the bridge in September (first one didnt work)...its now Mid November and I still dont have any data

Green amber looks like pure green in color & polished in nature. It is so rare in today & also so expensive. It is 1st grade stone. :oops:
