Why is my Default Gateway not 192.168.0.1?
Recently, and randomly, the default gateway on my Arris modem changed from 192.168.0.1 to fe80::201:5cff:fe75:5e46%7. At the same time, the switch that i have connected to my modem stopped working correctly - It will only allow 4 ports to be active at any time (i am using 8 of the 16 ports for various LAN connections, google wifi, and ooma telo). I have spoken to Spectrum 3 or 4 times, and one of those time the technician was able to do a factory reset that changed the default gateway back to 192.168.0.1 and the switched worked again. Then a few days later, the gateway went back to the nonsense letters and the switch went back to only 4 ports working. They have no idea why it's happening. I should mention it's an unmanaged gigabit switch. Anyone out there know what's going on? Thanks!
