Connecting Your Router:

Things you will need:

  • 2 Ethernet cables.
  • A router.
  • The MAC address of your router (usually found on the bottom of the router).
  • An account with Pavlov Media.  Sign Up for an account here.
  • Locate the MAC address on the bottom of the router:
    Note: the router has two MAC addresses.  You will need to activate the MAC address for the WAN Port.
    If the MAC address of the LAN Port is the only one listed, then you can determine the WAN port MAC address by adding 1 to the number or letter of the LAN port.  Example:  If the LAN MAC address is 00:11:22:AA:BB:CC then by adding 1 to the last character would yield the WAN MAC address of 00:11:22:AA:BB:CD (Note that the "C" of the LAN port becomes a "D" to denote the WAN port.
  • Connect one end of the Ethernet cable to the wall jack in your bedroom.
  • Connect the end coming from the wall to the WAN Port on your router.

Warning!  Be sure to connect to the port labeled WAN or Internet, and not to one of the numbered ports. If you connect your wall jack to one of the numbered ports, your router will act as a DCHP server and interrupt the internet access for everyone else on your network.  If this occurs, Pavlov Media will have no choice but to terminate your Internet access until you correctly connect the router.

  • Connect your laptop or desktop to the router at one of the numbered (1-4)  Ethernet ports or through the wireless connection if you have a wireless router. (Refer to the user guide that came with your router for information on setting up a wireless connection.)
  • Login to your account here (myaccount.pavlovmedia.net)
  • Register the MAC address for your router.

Once you have registered the MAC address of the router, please unplug the power to your router and shut down your computer.  Wait 1 minute and plug the router back in.  Wait 30 seconds (or until all of the lights have come on and their flashing has stabilized) and then start your computer back up.  You should now be able to browse the internet.
