Any ideas on what I need to change in my router to get an IP address to the 80.2?
Which Dlink? Is DHCP enabled in the Dlink? Are you using MAC filtering on the Dlink router? Is your availiable IP address range large enough?

The IP address field is frayed/grayed out until you disable DHCP.
To assign a static IP vs using DHCP you need to know your home network. What subnet is it using? What range of IP's will it accept? Are you using mac filtering?, if so add the 80.2 Mac address to the router table etc.
1. Go into hardware setup - Network (7.6)
2. Down arrow to DHCP
3. Set to disable
4. Enter Ip address you want to assign in the range your home router as well as integra will accept.
5. Enter the subnet Mask 255.255.255.0
6. Enter Gateway address - the address of your router
7. Enter DNS server address - usually you can use your router IP address, or your ISP's DNS server IP's.
8. Leave control disabled
9. Be sure to save the settings.
Put it in standby for a minute or two, reset your router wait for it to come up, then power on the 80.2.
Curious if anyone with network trouble has tried disabling network control or assigning a statigc IP, if so was there any difference in the network operation on the 80.2?
