I have a computer hooked to the internet through Roadrunner DSL cable, I connected the Dynex router DX-ESW8 to the computer and the cable box, this worked great.... Then I connected my playstation 2 to the router and the playstation 2 will not connect..... when we manually put in the ip address (same as computer) it says conflicting.... It will time out if we go to auto, to find the ip address.....

Please post more info. What is your Internet connection? Cable or DSL? Most Cable providers you will need to set the connection on the Router to DHCP. If DSL, you should have the DSL modem placed into bridge mode (contact your provider for assistance) and then set the Router to authenticate the DSL's PPPoE.
Also, if you've got a Cable modem, it might need to be rebooted to allow the Router to work. I know I have to do do this when I'm testing and switching out routers.
First off, verify that you can connect to your cable modem directly. After that, hook up your Dynex wireless router and reboot your cable modem. After this, directly connect your computer to the Dynex router (using a cable). If you cannot get an Internet connection, then there is some issue with your Dynex router configuration. It's possible that there might be an IP address conflict with the cable modem. It would be best to contact support for configuring the Dynex.
If you can connect to the Internet with your computer connected directly to the Dynex router, then there must be some router configuration problem affecting your ability to connect wirelessly. You'll have to check the configuration--might be a good idea to completely reset the router and start over. If that doesn't help, you should contact Dynex customer support, as each router has its own configuration specifics. Good luck.
You need the Network Adapter and you have to sign up and pay money/ month http://au.ps2.ign.com/articles/366/366021p1.html f you are hooking it up to a DSL cable/modem, 1. Remove the sticker covering the network connector on the Network Adaptor and plug your Ethernet cable in the connector labeled NETWORK. 2. Plug the AC power cord for the PlayStation2 system into an electrical outlet. 3. Turn on the PlayStation2 system and start the Network Adaptor Start-up Disc. If you are hooking it up to a router: 1. Remove the sticker covering the network connector of the Network Adaptor. 2. Connect an Ethernet network cable from the NETWORK connector of the Network Adaptor to an available LAN port of the router. 3. Connect the WAN port of the router to the DSL or cable modem. 4. Connect a personal computer (not pictured) to an available LAN port of the router. Use a web browser on the PC to set up the router to reach the Internet. 5. Follow the specific instructions that come with the router. There is no additional installation for switches. If you are hooking it up to a LAN: 1. Remove the sticker covering the network connector of the Network Adaptor. 2. Connect an Ethernet network cable from the NETWORK connector of the Network Adaptor to a wireless Ethernet bridge. 3. Connect the WAN port of the wireless router to the DSL or cable modem. 4. Connect a personal computer to the router. Use a web browser on the PC to set up the router to reach the Internet. 5. Follow the specific instructions that come with the router. For pictures, see the thread here: http://www.funadvice.com/r/3js7klmkua
If your hub has 4 or 5 connectors, connect one port to your router. This device will NOT work when connected to your cable modem, as the hub does not manage IP addresses like a router does. Hope this helps ... the remaining ports will feed internet, but not provide Internet addresses to a computer.
Unplug the router for ten seconds and plug it back in, it needs to reset. Some routers have a reset button. I often wait longer than ten seconds, I find a beer is usually the right amount of time. Sometimes the modem needs a reset also; unplug everything, then plug back in sequence, with the modem first, the wait, then the router, wait, then turn on your computer. That system works for any brand modem and router.
Might I suggest checking out this site, http://www.ps3chat.com/playstation-3-online/1351-routers-ps3.html . I think that the Linksys router is having issues keeping the connection alive on your PS3. You should also consider setting a static IP.
I'm sorry to say but you cannot bypass the modem capability of the DSL Westell Modem/router because that is really made to function as a DSL modem and a router at the same time, so the best way to make everything work here since you change from DSL to Cable internet just need to get a wireless router like a Linksys WRT54G that can make everything work again like before.....
Verify your router is connected to a standard grounded outlet. Check that the Internet cable is connected to the WAN port on your router, and check the WAN light on the front of your router is illuminated. Check that the LAN lights are on.
Power cycle your router by unplugging the DSL/Cable Modem from the power, then unplug the router and power off your computers. Then, plug in the DSL/Cable Modem to the wall and wait until all the lights are on and none of them are blinking. Power on the DX-E401 router and wait until all the lights are on. Now, power on one computer and verify the Internet connection.
You can verify your router is working properly by sending an echo request to it and verifying the response you get.
If you are a Windows user go to Start, select the Run option and in the dialog box type in CMD. Once there, type in ping 192.168.0.1 and you should get 0% loss as a response.
If these do not help, the router is likely to have malfunctioned, requiring repair or replacement.
It is possible but it may not work as a router (2 wire 270). The 2wired router only has a phone port and ethernet/usb for computer connection. So if you will connect the roadrunner modem to the 2wired, you can connect it to the ethernet port of the 2wire, but the 2 wire will not function as a router any more. It will work just like a wireless bridge. This one setup that you can.
