Question about SonicWALL Operating Systems

Router will not see modem

After rebooting the router and modem several times, I can not get the router to recongnize the modem. The RX light is blinking and the one port LAN light is steady. Computer says there is a connection, it appears it is just not getting the IP address.

When connecting directly from the modem to the computer everything works fine.

Any suggestions on how to make this router work>

Check you computer program, you should have the Sonicwall soho wizard program, if not try to fund the CD and run it.
turn off all devices, turn on one device one at a time starting with modem, router and pc. the wizard should come up for the sonic wall , just folow the wizard instruction.

1.call comcast and ask them to put your modem on bridge mode.
2. Once the modem is on bridge mo the internet light will turn OFF
3. connect your comcast modem using the Ethernet cord to the Internet port at the back of your netgear router.
4. connect another ethernet cable from port number 1 from the back of your router and the other end should be connected at the back of your computer.
5. Then go to this website for the instruction to configure your netgear router. it includes screenshots as well for better understanding.

I caint sign in keeps saying error 80710a06


I am glad to HELP YOU!

Many users of PS have reported a similar error.
I'd suggest you to rest - as a first "aid" - your Internet connection. Reset your modem/router after you have powered OFF your PS. When the resetting procedure is done and your modem/router lights are all ON and STEADY turn ON your PS3 and retry.
If this does not work, log into your router page and enable UPnP.

And please read THIS.

My best regards!

Internet connection problem in ubuntu


That depends on the modem and router settings. If you are using cable modem (a box connected to the cable from your internet service provider) without a router, you will need to set your computer to get a IP address automatically and restart the modem. Then you can renew the IP address if necessary. If you are using a router (another box) connected with the modem, then you might want to connect to the router by using the IP address on the same subnet as the internal interface of the router and enable DHCP. Then you can restart the modem and get an IP address for the router (usually you can see a button to click for that on the management page of your router after you open that in your browser, check the manual of your router about details). After that you can reconfigure your computer to use dynamic IP address and then renew IP address or restart. Please don't hesitate to post if you have questions.

How can i set up a connection to a network with windows vista basic


There are several ways to do this you can use a router, wireless router or set up a direct connection. With a router all you have to do is connect your modem to the router and computers to the router. For a wireless connection you need a wireless card installed in your computer and a wireless router. You connect your modem to your router and set up your wireless connection with the software that came with your card or through windows wireless service. You can also connect two computers through their ethernet port with an ethernet cord. You plug coonect them with the cord go into control panel open network connections and to the left chose set up home or small office network. You will need to configure the computer with internet access as the host and the other as a guest. You can share any type of connection such as dial up, cable, dsl, and broadband.

Internet works for only a while and then stop


sometimes routers can build up static charge and you need to disconnect them for 10 seconds. Make sure your pc's ip is set to automatic configuration so it can interact with your router. Set up new home network if needed

Can't download from windows server


Okay, so let's see here. Try testing the following...in this order.

Regardless that you just reloaded the pc, please download and run these 3 excellent free products:
malwarebytes anti malware
superantispyware
asquared free

Run full scans with all three and remove all threats found, including tracking cookies. If still no good, read on...

Connect the newly reloaded pc directly to your modem, bypassing the router entirely (reboot the modem before connecting the pc to it). This will tell you if your connection is good. if no good contact the isp. If it's good, power off (not sleep or hibernate) all other pc's, reconnect the reloaded pc to the router (no other pc's connected to the router). Reboot modem, and router, wait one minute, then power up the pc. Test the connection. If no good, someone else may 'own' your wireless router and be blocking websites....especially if the router is not secured with wpa encryption, and a strong password. follow the manufacturers instructions to reset the router to factory original settings (ususlly just press and hold the reset button for 30 seconds). Test the connection again. If still no good, then try another router. If it's good, but the problem resurfaces when the laptops are turned on, then scan the laptops for malware too.

Hope this helps!

If Embarq cannot or willnot help you, drop them and get another service.
First connect your modem directly to the computer to isolate the problem. If it solves problem then difficulty is in the router. Then contact the router manufacturer.

If problem persists the Embarq should help you.
