Question about Cnet CNIG914 Router (NWCNIG914)
The CNet CNIG-914 was working well with the cable modem connected to the WAN port and my three computers connected through an Asante ethernet hub to one of the LAN ports. I disconnected the LAN cable and suddenly the router won't recognize the LAN connection any more (light stays off, no activity). I've checked the cable -no problems there. I've connected the router to the modem through the hub on the WAN side -no problem. I've reset the router -no joy. Any suggestions?

Can you log into the Hub at the IP http://192.168.1.1/ when it is connected to the computer and the internet connection? Perhaps it is just a configuration issue. http://www.cnetusa.com/support/manuals/CNIG-914D.pdf 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.

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.

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.
