The issue is multiple DHCP servers
The issue can't be multiple DHCP servers when I connect the modem directly to a PC, I can access the config page for the first 10 seconds and then after I get the same error 324.
Anyway this is ****ing the **** out of me. I set it up this way:
Modem set as DHCP server - doesn't seem to be any way to set it otherwise, anyway I don't have much time to get into its setting page
Router has DHCP disabled
Modem is plugged into WAN port of router
PCs are plugged into LAN ports of router
Booted both devices - internet worked for all computers including wireless. I could access the router at 192.168.1.1, but the modem was nowhere to be found.
Then it just randomly stopped working for every computer except for one, my brother was playing SC1 online and it was still working for him. I tried unplugging my ethernet cable from the router but that disconnected him as well, illogically.
So I tried rebooting both devices and that didn't work, couldn't even access the router.
So I factory resetted the router, now I could access it, but no internet.
Did the same thing I did before, disabled DHCP on the router, rebooted.
Now I get internet on all the computers that were connected on Ethernet at the time I rebooted. Those I connected after don't work. Those on wireless don't work. When I try ipconfig /renew, it says the DHCP server timed out. Those that don't work don't have default gateways. For those that have default gateways, trying to access that page at that gateway address (which doesn't start with 192.168...) does nothing.
Btw this thread should be under Internet Network and Security, misread the title section before I posted.

when you change services it's always a good idea to reset BOTH devices (modem and router) to resolve any conflicts that both may have....
It's a new modem and it doesn't seem to have any reset button. I factory resetted the router multiple times now (only way to get the connection back up when it goes down apparently).
