So many smart bro users enable DHCP , and lose there connection instantly, I wonder why there is no warning of this. You have lost the Ip address that had been programmed into your network adapter.

Go into the network adapter and click on properties, then to  (TCP/IP) put 169.254.3.3 Subnet Mask 255.255.0.0, then goto internet explorer / firefox whatever, and put 169.254.1.1 in the address bar , this may or may not work, depending on if you changed it in the canopy or not. If nothing seems to work, you can try this method.

WARNING: During the process, you will be disconnected from the internet, but of course you'll be able to get back afterwards. So I suggest you copy and paste this tutorial on Notepad for a safer reference.

Part 1: Configuring the LAN Setting

Follow the steps carefully:

1. Go to Control Panel, and then onto Network Connections. You should see your Local Area Connection. Right click on it and click Properties.

2. A new window pops-up, which says "Local Area Connection Properties". On the General tab, there should be a box which contains a list with checkboxes beside them. Scroll down to the bottom and you should see the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) item. Double click it.

3. Another window pops-out. It says "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties" and you should be on the General tab. There are two options there enabled by default: Obtain an IP address automatically and Obtain DNS server address automatically.

Now read these carefully:

    * Click on Use the following IP address option. Enter these data:

    * IP address: 10.20.30.40

    * Subnet mask: 255.0.0.0

    * Default gateway: leave it blank

    * Click on Use the following DNS Server addresses:

    * Preferred DNS server: leave it blank

    * Alternate DNS server: leave it blank

    * After you entered correctly all the data, press Ok.

4. You are back at the Local Area Connection Properties window. Press Ok to apply the changes. Wait for a moment for the changes to take effect. By this time you will be disconnected from the internet. But dont worry, you'll be able to be back of course (just refer to PART 4 to know how to get back to the internet).

PART 2: The Canopy IP Address Quest

Now you need to know your Canopy IP Address. There are two ways, as follows:

Safe Method:

          o Go to Start -> Run -> cmd.exe. On the command promt, type arp -a (take note of the space after the word arp).The command prompt will display several IP addresses. Example:

    C:Documents and Settingsgiluk_no_jutsu>arp -a

    Interface: 10.20.30.40 --- 0x2

    Internet Address Physical Address Type

    10.0.0.1 0a-00-3e-f7-de-2d dynamic

    10.247.222.45 0a-00-3e-f7-de-2d dynamic

So my Canopy IP Address would be 10.247.222.45.

PART 3: Into the Forbidden Domain we Hack!

Note: Make sure you have done the set-up on Part 1 before proceeding.

1. Open your web browser and enter your Canopy IP address on the address bar. You will be brought to the Canopy Homepage.

2. On the left side of the Canopy page, you should see a navigation box. Click Configuration.

3. Click on the Quality of Service (QoS) Tab. You should see your Bandwidth Settings. Take a look at your Sustained Uplink Data Rate and Sustained Downlink Data Rate. By default they should be both at 256. See? Those are your default download and upload limits. Kinda sucks right?

4. Alright, so listen well. Change both of the Uplink and Downlink values to 500. Actually you can set the values to any number you like as long as their total would be 1000 (eg: you can have your downlink: 600 and uplink: 400, or you can have downlink: 700 and uplink: 300). However, The recommended value for both uplink and downlink rates is both at 500. So I suggest you have the recommended value as well. Click the Save Changes button.

5. The screen should say Reboot Required. So press the Reboot button. By this time, your Local Area Connection icon on your tray area (botton-right side of your desktop) should have an X mark on it. Just wait for a while until that X mark disappears. That's it.

PART 4: Getting Back Online

The last thing you need to do is to connect back to the internet.

1. So go back to Control Panel, and then onto Network Connections. You should see your Local Area Connection. Right click on it and click Properties.

2. A new window pops-up, which says "Local Area Connection Properties". On the General tab, there should be a box which contains a list with checkboxes beside them. Scroll down to the bottom and you should see theInternet Protocol (TCP/IP) item. Double click it.

3. Another window pops-out. It says "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties" and you should be on the General tab. Now click on Obtain IP address automatically and Obtain DNS server automatically. Press Ok.

4. You're back at the Local Area Connection Properties window. Again Press Ok. Wait for a moment for the changes to take effect.

sorry to say but i did this already and i still can't open the canopy page. actually i got connected to internet but it's is not my account. before i got this problem i used this steps

   

    * Click on Use the following IP address option. Enter these data:

    * IP address: 10.20.30.40

    * Subnet mask: 255.0.0.0

    * Default gateway: leave it blank

    * Click on Use the following DNS Server addresses:

    * Preferred DNS server: leave it blank

    * Alternate DNS server: leave it blank

    * After you entered correctly all the data, press Ok.

and in cmd promt i type "arp -a" and i got a lot of Canopy IP address so i copy all and save, then when i do enable DHCP thats the time i can't open the canopy page and i don't have internet connection so i did this step again but i used the other Canopy IP address "10.247.222.45"  that i copied and try to save actually this is not my Canopy IP address  this Canopy IP address belongs to other subscriber. i don't know how it happen but it works. even i have an internet connection still i want to use my own canopy ip or my antenna.

And has there been any progress on this at all, and if you are able to gain access to the canopy, will you post how you went about this.

i was able to change my DL/UL sustained data rates to 950/50 respectively, but then after a few minutes, it would go back to 800/200. then it reboots itself.

i'm not sure if get it right, but the canopy manual said that the rates can be set by the APs, so maybe the APs are doing this automatic modification of the data rates.

does anyone know about this automatic thingy that my canopy does?

speed test on 800/200:

have you tried doing the override plug? i cant access my canopy too.. i made my ip from local to public and changed some unit settings and i think my canopy has been blocked.. im  trying to find rj-11 with 6 pins but its too hard to find it... and also its very difficult to do the override plug.. my friends say i can short the canopy adapter by using a clip or wire only.. but i think its very risky.. i cant understand what coolbuster meant in his forum " Resetting Canopy Using Router".. I Hope Someone Would Help..

try using a router. just plug in the PC lan in to the router, then the canopy's. after that, go to cmd and type in ipconfig /all to see your router's IP. go to the router's access page in your browser by typing in the router's IP in the address bar, it's usually 192.168.1.1 but it differs from router to router.

if you have done it correctly, you may now view the IP addresses that are connected to that router - canopy's IP included.

use the IP address of the canopy you found in the access page of the router to access the canopy's page. then disable the DHCP option, save and reboot.

THanks for the quick reply , i know what my router's address is, its 192.168.1.1, where can i see the IP's connected, im using Lan Router not a Wifi.  Thanks in advance

is yours a linksys router? mine's of different brand eh.

well, browse thru the navigation menu, maybe something like administration or status. there's gonna be a list of IP addresses connected to your router. it's not that hard to look for since the only ones connected are your PC and the canopy. :]

Hi guys,

The following questions are directed to those who've actually tweaked they canopy settings but soon after, they couldn't access their canopy anymore.

- Did Smart Communications discovered you had access to your canopy? How did they knew about it?

- How did you discover it you no longer had access? Did the message "New settings in your connection have been detected, your account is temporarily deactivated" suddenly appear in your browser?

- Were you still able to activate your account after the incident?

Thanks!

Hi guys please help my smartbro connection is unstable, sometimes disconnects due to high jitter. LOS (line o f sight) is partially covered by trees, antenna height is already 30 ft and I'd like to know the most practical solution, preferably DIY, to this problem. I know roughclaw will solve this problem but it's kinda pricy and so I'll just buy one if there's no other solution or just change to globe wimax instead of buying roughclaw. I found one practical solution here, on this thread, it's called stinger made from aluminum sheet but I cannot see diagram or attachments on this page

Post is knda old but if it worked then it will still work now as it is a design for somekind of a "do it yourself" reflector. To those who know or have the design diagrams please please repost it...

Thanks
