Cnet broadband cnig-914

I was just recently switched over to Time Warner from Comcast. I have been using this hub cnig-914 to hook up all the computers in my home. Everything was fine until the transaction process started. I have a hookup only if I directly go to my main pc, but when I try to go through the hub I have no connection to any of the computers Any advice is very appreciated. Thanks

Re: cnet broadband cnig-914

Hi vintiques,

as you have mention, you switch from comcast to time warner, means that you need to reconfigure your cnig-914. Since both providers required a registered mac address, you need to do a mac cloning with your cnig-914, take note that it should be the MAC ADDRESS or PHYSICAL ADDRESS of the computer can go online with the modem. Then, after that you can just simply do a power cycle

how to do mac address cloning check your cnig-914 manual

How to do a power cyle :
* turn off the computer
* turn off the router
* turn off the modem

after a minute or two
* turn on the modem (if all lights are ok)
* turn on the router
* turn on the pc (check the connection)

hopefully everything works fine

Re: cnet broadband cnig-914

Can you log into the Hub at the IP when it is connected to the computer and the internet connection? Perhaps it is just a configuration issue. is the link to the manual to setup your router. Without further information about your network and its configuration I can't give more specific information. If you will please post any specifics about your configuration I can hopefully assist further. Please tell me how many computers there are, how many are directly connected to the router and how many are wirelessly trying to connect. Another suggestion is check your boot up order. Often times you have to unplug everything, then plug in the internet router, give it time to full boot up and have all lights on, then plug in the additional router (in this case I am assuming that it would be the CNet Cnig914), again allowing all the lights to come on, then plug in or turn on any pc that is connected directly to the router, followed by any computer that is wireless. This allows each system to be assigned the IP address and recognize the previous equipment. Once it gets an IP and everything is working you shouldn't have to repeat this process.

Might I suggest that you reset the router to its default configuration by pressing and holding the reset button until it reboots. This way you will be dealing with the default configuration. Then try to use it. Remember the default login ID is admin and the password is Password or admin. Lets hope this helps

SOURCE: DIR-300 router and broadband ISP connection,is NAT possible?

With a cable broadband connection, the cable line comes into the cable modem. The cable modem does the work changing the cable signal to a network connection and sends an I.P. address to the computer. With some cable internet providers you can hook the network cable into the in port on a router, wireless or wired, then hook up computers to the router. At this point the router gets the IP from cable and uses it's own IP routing for your internal network. Some broadband providers control your access by the computers mac address which registers with the vendor. If this is the case then the easy way to make it work is to get a router which can clone a mac address so the vendor still sees the same mac address.

1. Reset the cable modem. There should be a reset button on the rear... hold it in for 10 seconds. If there is no button, unplug it (pull the backup battery too, if applicable)

2.Login to your routers web interface. IP address should be

3.Click the status tab.

4.Under WAN>Connection> click "DHCP Release"-----> Then click "renew"

If that does not work Return to the routers web interface. Click the setup tab ----> click "Manual configure"

Under DHCP Internet connection type> click "clone mac address"

Do NOT forget to save your changes before switching tabs in the routers web interface.

Connect your main cmoputer directly to the time warner modem. make sure that your computer will be able to go on line when connected directly to the modem. If not then call Time warner.
If your computer is able to go on line when connected to the modem then your modem is working properly. You will need to change the settings of the router.
First reset the router for 30 seconds. On the router you will find a small reset button. Hold it down for 30 seconds. release it. wait for 1 minute. now unplug the power to the router and plug it back in. wait for 30 seconds till the power light on the router will be solid.
Now connect the modem and the computer to the router.
Now you will need to clone the MAC address of your main computer to the router. you will neeed to open the set up page of the router.
once your main computer is online , you can change the wireless settings of the router and connect to the wireless network on the laptop.

My Cnet CNIG-914 router doesn't give internet connection

There are several possible problems. Do you receive an IP address from the router? To find out, open the command prompt (Start > Run, type in command , and at the prompt enter (without quotes) "ipconfig".

If you have an IP address, try unplugging the router and your modem for 2 minutes. Power on the modem first, and wait for alll lights to stop their startup flashing and testing pattern (1-2 minutes is usually good), then plug the router in.

If you do not recieve an IP address (if your IP address is 169.x.x.x that is most likely the case) then the router is not giving you one. reset it to factory defaults, and follow the instructions to set it up again.

Try those and let us know how it works out for you.

I have Time Warner Cable for internet and Vontage cable for my phone thru my internet. I'm trying to connect a Linksys router for my wireless laptop. I also have a Netgear switch connected to Time Warner...

If you purchased a Linksys wireless roter then you shoul not need the switch anymore-
Try going directly from your time warner modem into the Interner/WAN port on the router and then plug your desktop computer and the vontage phone system into 2 of the ports on the router. After everything is hooked up you will probably need to power cycle for it all to work correctly.
Please power cycle in this order:

Reboot modem - then Router- then Vontage phone system.

Hope this helps

Dell Truemobile 2300 - cannot connect to internet

This is usually a router configuration issue. The router has to be configured to match your new broadband settings.

For example, your old DSL may have required some kind of login which was entered into the router. For most broadband cable connections, you set the router to get an IP address automatically.

Re-run the router Setup Wizard. You can download it here:

Network switch

Sounds like you know what you're doing... but.. based on what you've typed..

You need to make certain the comcast cable modem is plugged into the seperate port on the back of the router called WAN and not next to the other LAN connectors.

The network is seperate from the internet. The router acts as a firewall and shares the WAN with the LAN internally and automatically.

I assum that you have one red light on WAN.. and three green lights for LAN..

VPN connection issues

check if you can enable "VPN pass-through" on your home router.
try diabling its security features (firewall) one at a time and try afterwards.
last option perhaps try upgrading to the 5.06 version of the vpn client.

Linksys 5-port Workgroup Hub

Hi Tman,

Here is a link to the Xbox ports.
In the firewall option, direct those ports to the IP of your Xbox. I don't have an xbox, but I would think there is someway to set a static IP on it. That way DHCP won't change your xbox ip when you reboot it. Some routers allow you to assign a specific IP to the xbox, but not sure about yours.
Visit this site, It may have your router, and will tell you how to setup the ports for your xbox step by step.

Why its working with some ISP's and does not work with other ISP

ISP's have different requirements for connecting a router to their hardware. One required me to enter a static IP address, another requires acceptance of a dymanic IP address and a third uses dynamic IP addresses and requires a PPPoE logon from the router and a configuration change to their modem to switch it to a bridge, and a fourth I have read about require a reboot of their modem device to recognise changes in the MAC address (assigned to the network adapter) of the attached device (router). I am sure these are not all the variations possible, Requirements for router connections specifically the WAN side of the router are specific to your ISP. Often in their help or support areas they either have FAQ's or help pages to explain the requirements or an online technician available through chat who can tell you what is required. Often however it is up to you to be able to perform then necessary configuration tasks (especially on you hardware) to make this happen. I may be able to provide assistance of you identify you internet provider including local provider companies and geographic location (city / State) in some cases to determine their policies and requirements for attaching routers to their equipment.
