Is the PC wired directly to the broadband modem?

If it is, try this:
* Turn off the PC
* Turn off the modem - make sure its powered off completely
* Wait 30 seconds
* Turn modem on, wait for the lights to become solid (Cable or Online LED should be solid)
* Start the PC

Goodluck!

"Windows has detected an IP address conflict"


If all looks good try right clicking on network status icon in sys tray and use repair. A more advance option would be to use ipconfig from the command prompt.


Start > Run (search in Win 7) > type ipconfig /release. Then ipconfig /renew. ipconfig ? will show you all the options. Good luck.

Windows XP: How to release and renew IP addresses


IP addresses can either be assigned manually or automatically. When they are assigned automatically, a DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server hands them out and determines which computer or other device gets which address. This process usually flows smoothly, but there are times when you may need to release or renew an IP address even when using DHCP.

There are several ways to release and renew IP addresses in Windows XP. Each procedure is described below.

From the system notification tray:

1. Right click on the network connection icon in the system notification tray.
2. Select Repair. Windows will automatically release the current IP address, reset the network connection, and request an IP address from the DHCP server. (The new IP address that gets assigned may be a different one from before, or it may be the same one.)

From the Start menu:

1. Click the Start button.
2. Right click on My Network Places.
3. Select Properties.
4. Right click on the network connection that is currently in use.
5. Select Repair. (If you choose a network connection that is not in use, Repair will be grayed out.)

For either of the above methods, you can release and renew your IP address manually by clicking Disable instead of Repair, and then right-clicking and choosing Enable.

From the command prompt:

1. Click the Start button.
2. Click Run.
3. Type "cmd" and press [Enter].
4. At the command line, type "ipconfig /release" and press [Enter].
5. Type "ipconfig /renew" and press [Enter].
6. Type "exit" and press [Enter].

First, make sure you are plugeed into ports1-4, not in the Uplink port. Secondly :
  1. Click the Start menu button on the Windows taskbar.

  2. Click Run... on this menu.

  3. If the computer is holding a current IP address, type 'cmd' (without the quotes) in the text box that appears. A command prompt window appears on the screen.

  4. Type 'ipconfig' (without the quotes) to view the status of the computer's IP address(es).

  5. If the computer is holding a current IP address, type 'ipconfig /release' to let go of the address.

  6. Type 'ipconfig /renew' to obtain a new IP address (whether or not the computer is holding a current address).
Tips:
  1. If it is not necessary to view the current IP addresses on a computer, simply type 'ipconfig /release' or 'ipconfig /renew' (without the quotes) in the text box that appears in Step 3.

  2. To bring a computer back onto the network after moving it to a different location, or experiencing an unexpected outage, first release, then renew the IP address. Computers on DHCP networks often (but not always) re-establish network connectivity automatically.

it seems to be just settings for the new device your lacking.

log on to the router as ADMINISTRATOR,

Windows 2000/XP -

To release and renew IP address, go to Start > Run. Type in CMD and press Enter. At the prompt, type in ipconfig and press Enter. This will display the adapter information such as IP address, Subnet mask, and default gateway.

To view additional information such as Mac address, DNS servers, etc, type in ipconfig /all.

To release IP address, type ipconfig /release.

To renew IP address, type ipconfig /renew.

If you are not able to get an IP address try setting one statically:

Windows 2000

Step 1 Right-click on My Network Places and select Properties.

Step 2 Right-click on the Local Area Connection which represents your network card and select Properties.

Step 3 Highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click Properties. Enter your IP information for your network.

If connecting to a router, make sure the default gateway and a DNS server is the IP address of the router (e.g. 192.168.0.1 or 10.1.1.1).

Windows XP

Step 4 Click on Start > Control Panel > Network and Internet Connections > Network connections.

Step 5 See Step 2 for Windows 2000 and continue from there.

Hope this helps ,

Router


Have you got in to configure it. In the address put 192.168.1.1 if a username and password haven't been set up leave username blank and put admin for the password. There might be a setting wrong. The routers IP never changes. the router supplies you computer with an IP. After hooking it up you could try to enter ipconfig in to the run prompt. Then ipconfig\release then ipconfig\renew. see if that helps.

Connecting via cable broadband


sometimes, it's necessary to turn the modem off overnight, with cable modem folks, so that the IP address can reconfigure..weird, but true..

also, you may want to go to settings, and automatically set the address, instead of using the dedicated IP approach.

MAC Address authentication


Even though this answer is specifically for the DI-704, the steps and concepts are the same for all other D-Link gateways. If you have a modem with a USB connection only, it will not work with any broadband router due to the need of drivers to operate the modem. The key to this type of connection is recycling the power on the cable modem after physically connecting the modem to the D-Link gateway. Before you start: When first setting up the DI-704, only connect the computer that was used when you originally set up your broadband connection. Do not use hubs or switches for initial setup. Once the gateway is up and running, you can easily add additional computers, hub, and switches to set up a more complicated LAN. Summary: Physically set up the DI-704 by connecting your computer to a LAN port and your modem to its WAN port. From the Network Properties Control Panel, make sure your network card is set to "Obtain an IP Address Automatically". Restart your computer. From the Setup page of the DI-704´s web configuration, set the WAN type to Dynamic and check the box to Enable Renew IP Forever. Click Save. From the Tools page click the button to Clone MAC, then click Reboot to apply the changes. Power down both the modem and the DI-704. Power on the modem first, letting it stabilize, then power on the DI-704. Go Online! That´s the quick, down and dirty explanation. For more detailed setup information use the following step-by-step approach below. Step-by-Step Configuration: Step 1 Connect your broadband modem to the WAN port on the DI-704. Use the same cable that was used to connect your computer to the modem. The WAN light on the DI-704 should illuminate, verifying a good physical link. Step 2 Connect the same computer that was originally connected to the modem to an open LAN port on the DI-704. The corresponding port light will illuminate verifying that you have a good physical connection. Step 3 Release and Renew the IP address for your computer. The address you renew should be in the 192.168.0.100 to 192.168.0.199 range. Use the directions below to Release and Renew your IP address. For Windows 95, 98 and Me: Go to Start>Run and enter winipcfg. Click OK. In the IP Configuration control panel, select your network adapter from the drop-down menu. Click theRelease button, then the Renew button to obtain an IP address from the DI-704. The IP configuration information shows an IP address of 192.168.0.104 and Default Gateway address of 192.168.0.1, which is the default IP address of the DI-704. This information verifies the network adapter is properly configured and the computer is communicating with the DI-704 For Windows 2000 and XP: Go to Start>Run and enter cmd. Click OK. At the DOS prompt enter, ipconfig/release and then hit the Enter key to release your IP address. Then enter, ipconfig/renew and hit Enter to renew an address from the DI-704. The IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway information will be returned with this command. Notice in this example that the IP address is 192.168.0.104 and that the default gateway is 192.168.0.1. This information verifies the network adapter is properly configured and the computer is communicating with the DI-704. For Windows NT: Click Start>Run and enter command, then click OK. At the DOS prompt, enter ipconfig/release and hit the Enter key to release your IP address. Then enter ipconfig/renew and hit Enter to renew an IP address from the DI-704. Note: If you receive any error messages at this point, you may either have a problem with the functionality of your network card, or it may not be configured to obtain an address automatically in the TCP/IP properties. Step 4 Open your browser and type 192.168.0.1 in the Address window, then hit the Enter key. You do not need to type http://, only the IP address of the DI-704. This will connect you to the web configuration utility that lets you manage the DI-704. You are not on the Internet at this point. Type admin for the System Password, then click the Login button to login. Step 5 Select the Setup menu option from the bottom of the screen. Make sure the WAN type is set to Dynamic. Check box to enable Renew IP forever. If the WAN configuration is not set to Dynamic, click the Change button and select Dynamic. Next, click the Save button and then the Reboot button on the bottom of the screen. Click OK when prompted to Reboot right now? Step 6 Next, we need to do something called cloning the MAC address. This will insure that you can connect through your modem in the event that the MAC address, or physical address, of your network card has been registered with your ISP. Cloning the MAC copies the MAC address of your ethernet card to the WAN port of the DI-704. In other words, it will appear to your ISP will that it is your computer connected to the modem, not the gateway. That is why it is necessary to configure the DI-704 from the same computer tha
