Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I cannot get the router to work.

It has worked fine for months until I started the pc a couple of days ago. the power light works, the status and adsl lights will not work, my lan connection light works and another lan light is on that is not connected. The other user connected is a gamer but we've not had any problems yet. I have tried default and it will not work. Is there a command that will 'wake it up'? Thanks

What happen when a adsl line work with a phone but not with a router


The phone line does two jobs. Voice phone which is what it was originally used for and ADSL modem which works at a high audio frequency.
Somewhere between the phone socket and the modem should be a filter splitter. One part goes to the phone and the other to the router. Make sure you have that.
The modem will have a power light and several additional lights. Assuming the power light is on we are interested in two of them; The ADSL light and the Internet light. When you switch the modem on you should first see the power light flash then go solid. Then the ADSL light will flash and then this should go solid. If this light does not come on then you have not plugged the phone wire in properly. If this light just keeps flashing slowly then the modem can't see an ADSL signal on the phone line. If you have a spare router you could try it and see if the ADSL light goes solid on that.
If the ADSL light is fine then the modem has locked onto the signal on the phone line, sync'ed. If not then this is the problem you must solve. Ask your ISP if service is set on your line.
The next light is the Internet light, this maybe a symbol like an i or a world. This light will begin flashing then go solid. It will flash with Internet traffic. This means you have Internet, as far as the modem is concerned. If this light does not stay on then your ADSL account name and password maybe wrong. You can correct this but that's a different question you need to ask.

When I first started using this modem, it worked great and easily worked well with my Belkin router. One day when I came home, the modem was only flashing the "power" light was flashing and I had...


Flashing power light on Router is sign of hardware failure As mentioned, you have already reset the router
You can try to hard reset the router one more time
Follow this procedure
1. Press the reset button with some paper clip 2. Wait for 10 Secs 3. Turn of Power to the router (While Reset button is still pressed) 4. Wait for 10 secs 5. Power on router 6. Wait for 10 secs and then release the Reset button
While doing this make sure reset button is pressed continuously start from Step 1 - 6
Check if Power light still blinks
If No - you can setup router like before and it will work If yes - Buy a new router or get it replaced if under warranty

UNABLE TO CONNECT WITH MY LAP TOP ON INTERNET HAVE FOUR LIGHTS ON AND FIFTH ONE FLASHING JUST STARTED YESTERDAY.


So that means its working well and connected to the ISP' server. What is your connection? Is it ADSL?
First make sure that all light have the color of green. If they are Flashing with color RED that means the property associated with the light is having a failure.
Here are the description of Colors and Lights.
Modem Light state: Unlit Flashing Red Flashing Green Steady Green
Cases:::
Power Light
Modem is not getting power - no light Modem has failed POST - Red Power is on - Steady Green
Ethernet (2nd Light)
No Ethernet link detected - No light Problem with ethernet port or cable - Flashing Green Modem has detected a successful link to a PC or router - Steady Green
DSL (3rd light)
ADSL sync signal is not detected - Red Modem is trying to synchronize. - Flashing Green Modem has ADSL sync and is ready for PPPoE session traffic - Steady Green.
Internet (4th light)
Modem has given up or isn't configured to initiate the PPPoE session - No Light PPPoE initiation has failed or PPPoE has been terminated. - Red Initiating a PPPoE session to Internet - Flashing Green. Modem is ready for Internet traffic - Steady Green.
Note: This light sometimes not working even if the connection initiated.
Activity
Normal DSL traffic flow - Flashing Green. Steady traffic flow - Steady Green.
Solving problems.
Case1: You have to connect your machine to the Modem Via the Network cable. Plug the other side of the cable to your Machine. (Not the modem port. Network card port.). Case2: You have to make sure that you have installed the Network Card drives. To check that you have to use Device Manager. Follow these steps. Hit Windows key with R In the "Run" box type devmgmt.msc In the right hand side check whether the network card is installed. If it has a yellow exclamation mark or a mark with red that means you haven't either installed or its having a device/driver problem.
Case3: If its fine then what you have to do is to check your network settings. Heres how: Since you haven't specified the Operating System I m including the Windows XP method here. Not much difference in other Operating Systems as well.
  • Get the Control Panel.
  • Go to Network and Internet Connections.
  • Go to Network Connections.
  • Check the Local Area Connection.
  • Right Click and check "Status".
  • If it says connected
  • Check the Duration and Speed(100 or 1000Mbps).
  • If the settings are fine go to "Support" Tab.
  • Check whether the Machine has received an IP Address. Which is often in the range of 192.168.254.xxx for Siemens Modems/Routers.
  • If you see an IP Address which starts from 169.xxx.xxx.xxx your network card was unable to pick an IP Address from the DHCP router which runs in the modem. (If you run a DHCP in the machine you have to configure to stop leasing IP Addresses to your machine from the Router/Modem. You can try the "Repair" button below and it will try to Release and Renew your IP. If it fail either you have a problem with your network card or Modem/Router (Could be the cable also).
  • If you still see the IP Address which starts with 192.168 the connection with your Modem is fine.
  • Next: Right Click on the Local Area Connection again.
  • Go to "Properties".
  • Double Click on "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).
  • Check the settings.
  • The settings should be "Obtain IP Addresses Automatically" and "Obtain DNS Server Address Automatically". (But if you know the router's/Modem's IP Address you can configure it and you can give a "Static IP" to your PC as well. It must not be the Router's / Modem's IP and must be in th SAME SUBNET. If router uses 192.168.254.xxx you can assign it as 192.168.254.2)
  • Then Apply the Settings and go to the "Status" again and then click on "Details".
  • Except Wins Server all others must be populated with values in 192.168 range. Check the "Default Gateway" Setting. Its very important that you have pointed the machines Default Gateway to the Router/Modem.
  • Final Check:
  • Go to the "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) again and click on "Advanced".
  • Check IP Settings (first tab) too make sure DHCP is enabled on you machine.
  • Go to "Options" tab and Check TCP/IP Filtering. Click on properties and make sure that the Filtering is not enabled. If it enabled make sure your network adapter Permits all routers traffic in to the machine.
By following these options will let you surf the internet.
Check for the behaviors of indicators as well.
Case 3 :Browser settings
In the Internet Explorer go to: Tools -> Internet Options ->Connections -> LAN Settings -> Its fine if any box is not checked. Or you can check the "Automatic Detection".
Last thing is If you have a Firewall or Antivirus Suite Please make sure that you are not blocking adapters and traffic/application. You can try to disable Windows Firewall and check whether it works as well.
Hope this will solve your issue. Please be kind enough to rate the answer with a comment (testimonial) if this helps you to overcome the issue. Feel free to contact us further. Thanks for contacting Fixya

Zoom X6 router does not properly initiate...


The first thing i would do is try to get hold of another router to test on that line to make sure the problem is not with the telephone line or even connecting to the ISP, if you dont have a problem with the second router it is safe to assume the router is at fault, in this case i would reset to factory conditions and then try again, if the problem continued i would go to the zoom website and look for a firmware upgrade.

ADSL Zoom x6 5590 DNS 360 Problem


Yes the router assigns an internal IP address. connect it up then using your PC go into the configuration of your router (http://10.0.0.2) and look under system status, scroll to the bottom and under DCHP status you will see a list of all clients connected. Your Xbox will be listed along with its internal IP address.

D-Link DIR 300 router - Status LED and router doesn't work


Hi! I have a D-link DIR 300 wireless router.. I have the same concern before. what I did is, I did the hard reset by pressing the reset button for 20secs and after 20secs and the reset button is still press, I unplug the power from the back of the router and after 2secs plug in while reset button is press and press it for 30secs.. after that I unplug the power and plug in after 15secs. It should work, then u need to setup again the router in order to talk to the modem, if not.. and the device is still under warranty it needs to be replace...pls call your router manufacturer for replacement or if its still under 30 days, go to the store were u purchase the router.

Zoom X5 ADSL light not blinking


May be your ADSL modem has clapped out it sounds like it. You say you can connect via the PC modem that means the dialup is working......I imagine you have tried the ID logon and password for the ADSL also and it still wont connect. Try support at your ISP and if it still dont connect then it must be had it, you will need to buy another.
