Dynex 4 port ethernet router

When I try to hook up the Dynex 4 port router, I have connectivity to Xbox and PS3 but not the computer. Tried to refresh IP, tried to enter 192.168.1.1 and get nothing. Called tech support, had me refresh, release, renew, default gateway was blank, so they said call microsoft. They wanted 80 dollars to help. Followed steps, made sure Obtain IP automatically and DNS servers were both checked. Still no good. Checked ip address it was the 192.168.1.1, checked the light, all good. Right click on internet connection and it says connected. Open up internet explorer and says page not found, type in 192.168.1.1 into the address and nothing. Other systems hooked up through the router work. PS3 and Xbox both have internet connection, but not the computer.

Computer is hooked up to connection 1 on the router.

Trying for a wired connection. OS is Windows XP, I did all these steps as were told this might help.

  1. Go to Control Panel on your computer. Then Click on Network Connections. Look for Local Area connection. RIght click on it and click properties.
  2. Look for Internet protocol TCP/IP. Select it and click Properties. Make sure that Obtain IP address automatically and Obtain DNS servers automatically.
  3. Then, check the IP address of your computer by doing a right click on Local area connection again, but this time click on Status then click support. The IP address that your computer should have is in the range of 192.168.1.x
  4. You may also check if the Ethernet light on your router is on for your computer's connection.
So, does the Default Gateway need something by it? Cause it is blank.

When the TCP/IP is set to dynamic or "Obtain Automatically", the default gateway is supposed to blank. The default gateway address of your network is actually the router's IP address.

What is the IP address that you get when you performed step 3?

You mentioned in your question that you had a router. If it is actually a modem, then yes, you need a router.
The reason that the Ethernet hub is not working is that your modem will only give out 1 IP address to one device on the hub. With a router, the router uses the 1 IP address and shares access to the internet via that 1 IP address.
Yes, you'll need a router instead of a hub.

1 connected ethernet cable from modem to dynex hub in "uplink port", ran another ethernet cable from laptop to 2nd port on dynex hub and ethernet cable from ps3 to 3rd port and nothing happens. Please help...


If your trying to use this to share an internet connection.. sorry to say but it's not going to happen. The hub that you purchased will not handle the DHCP settings that need to be processed to share an internet connection.

Best advice... go back to Best Buy and smack the agent that sold you this and get a router instead. :D That's what you're needing to share your connection.

Hi,

You need a router not a hub or a switch. with the help of the router you can share the comcast cable internet on multiple devices. A hub or a switch can not do this.

Get it replaced with a router. You can buy Linksys or Netgear router.

Cant hook this up, will this work two computers


You will need to use two standard ethernet cables. Each computer will connect to each of the LAN ports on the rear of the router. If you would like to connect the two computers to the internet, you will need to connect another ethernet cable, one end to your modem (assuming you already have one) and the other end to your router's WAN port. There are additional settings you need to configure on your router if your ISP requires a login.

Dynex dx-ehb4 will not change ip addresses


I am not familiar with that router so I will provide general knowledge and you can apply it to fix your problem.
It sounds like your cable modem is willing to supply a single IP address. This can and should be connected to the WAN port of your router. The problem is that the router is not assigning IP addresses to the equipment that is connected to its LAN ports. Instead, it allows that single cable modem IP to be assigned to connection #1 and everybody else gets nothing. Get the computer working through it, connect to the router as per the owners manual and turn on NAT or DHCP, whichever it offers. Reboot the computer and connect xbox and you should be good. This was probably not an issue with DSL because your DSL modem would supply up to about 10 IP addresses and they also passed through the router.
