Question about Cnet CNIG914 Router (NWCNIG914)

Open Question

CNet Router fails to see LAN connection

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.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 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.

How do i connect a wifi router to the dsl of my pc?


Your internet provider should have provided you with a modem (dsl modem) that will have a ethernet port which can be connected to a computer directly or a router to make internet available to multiple computers. Router usually comes with five ports one of them is WAN port (Wide Area Network) and other four are LAN ports (Local Area Network) The dsl modem should be connected to WAN port of your router and the LAN ports are use to connect to any computer with an ethernet cable. If the router has wireless capability you can use your laptop or smartphone to access internet wirelessly!

Im trying to connect my modam could you please help


First step is to make sure if the modem is functional. This can be done by connecting your computer to modem and check if you are able to log on to internet.
Second step is to connect the cable which previously connected to computer to Router's WAN port not LAN
Third step is to power cycle the modem and router that is power off and on both modem and router
Last step is connect router to your computer with new ethernet cable using one of the LAN ports of the router. There are usually three or four LAN ports on Router!
Good luck! Repost if you still need help!

If you connect the computer directly to the modem, does it work?
If that works then the modem is working.
Now connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
You will need to open the set up page of the router to check the settings of the router.
You can set up the router without the CD also.
It is very easy.

Trying to hook up router. What is the wan for and the 4 inputs


The WAN port is the physical interface that provides input and output to and from the device that provides Wide Area Networking capability .. i.e. the modem that connects to your Internet Service Provider. The usual choices are a DSL modem, a cable modem or a Wired router or a wired switch.
The 4 other inputs are wired inputs and outputs for wired Local Area Network connections.
The WAN port normally connects to the Internet. It is not necessary to connect anything to the WAN port to have a network. But without one of the usual devices, you will not have access to the Internet.
The LAN ports connect to the network interface port on the individual computers that are part of the local network. One port connects to one computer.
A large system will have routers connected through the LAN ports to the WAN ports on sub routers and so forth.

LinkSys router early deaths


Your cable modem has a ip address of 192.168.1.1 and your router probably has the same ip address. Hook your computer up to the router and change the ip address to 192.168.9.1. On your router change the router mode to static ip address mode. Then you will need to know your username and password from you cable company, and the Domain Number. Then connect the cable back to the wan port from the modem and the other end to the wan port of the router. Connect the computer to the first lan port on the router and type 192.168.9.1 go to the status page and tell it to connect.

Your cable company is giving you one ip addres and have to pay for another for more than one computer. What are you doing is using the router to receive the first ip address and distrubting out to the other computers.

Can I use 2WIRE 2701HG-B router in COX internet connection


No. A router has 2 main interface types WAN (for the internet connection side, and LAN (for the home network side) the 'LAN' side often has up to 4 ports and wireless connectivity for the home network.

The most common routers available at electronics retail use a CAT-5 connection for the WAN ports and the LAN ports. Your DSL modem/router uses a phone line input for it's WAN port, which uses a signal type that is incompatible with the cable modem output.

If COX doesn't offer a router with the cable modem package, you can go and purchase and common brand of home networking router, and attach it to the output of the cable modem.

A router is basically a mini-computer that splits up one internet connections to 4 (or whatever # of ports you have).

Basic Connections to a router:
A Router requires a internet connections, so your broadband modem must connect to the WAN port (theres only one) of the router DIRECTLY. Then Ethernet cables go from the router to the computers on the LAN ports. Don't do something weird like connecting your internet to your computer then your computer to the routers WAN port, it'll most likely mess up.

Once you have connected your router like this, it should work.

If your modem only has a usb port, I have no idea how to make that work out. Sorry. Try getting a new modem from your ISP, or check if your modem does have a ethernet port, if it does just connnect that to the routers wan port.

Also computers should not interconnect with each other with use of a router. Thats what the router is for. Everything gets connected and split up at the router, nothing connects to anything else but the router, basically.

Need help in connecting to the internet using Dlink 704p router.....


it doesn't matter whether the other computer is set to static and the other one is set to dynamic as long as both computers are getting/using valid ip addresses.
if i got it right. 1 computer is connected to the LAN port of the router and the other computer is connected to the WAN port. if so, you need to connect both computer to the LAN ports and the WAN port of the router should be connected to the modem that you are using.
if the physical connection is correct, check how you are connecting to the internet through the modem. if you can access the internet from the modem without configuring anything, you just need to power cycle. turn off everything then turn on the modem first, wait for the lights on the modem to turn on properly before turning on the router then turn on the computers.
hope this'll help you but if not, just provide the following:
(1)ISP:
(2)brand/model of the modem:
so i can help you further.
