Easiest way to fix that problem is to run your eithernet cable through a router/gateway/switch... it will go modem>gateway>xbox after cable has been ran set everything to auto and run a test. may need to do a few configuration changes to gateway but othere then that you will be online and good to go.

CNet wireless router Model CWR-854V. is causing my Ethernet lite on my DSL modem to blink causing me not to be able to get on internet. Changed all cables no help disconnected Router and modem works...


Use an Ethernet cable to connect your computer directly to the DSL modem, bypassing the router, turn the modem off, turn the modem on, wait 60 seconds, and restart your computer.

Does the Ethernet lamp still blink when Windows is booting, and when you are using the Internet?

Turn the DSL modem off.
Turn the router off.
Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the Ethernet cable from the modem, and connect it from the computer to the router.
Turn the router on, and wait 60 seconds, then turn your computer on.
After Windows is running, click Start.
Click Run
Type CMD
Press Enter
Type IPCONFIG
Press Enter
Look for output like: default gateway........ 192.168.123.456
If the string starts with '192.168', then your computer *IS* "talking" to the router.
Now, use an Ethernet cable to connect the WAN port on the router to the DSL modem.
Turn the modem on.
Turn the router off.
Turn the router on.
Wait 60 seconds.
Restart your computer, and you should be able to web-surf.

Unplug the power cables from both your DSL modem and D-Link router.
Verify the Ethernet cable is plugged into both your DSL modem and the D-Link router.
Plug the DSL modem power cable back in and wait for the self-test to finish.
Plug the D-Link router power cable back in and wait for the self-test to finish.
Plug your laptop into the D-Link router using an Ethernet cable.
Can you access the D-Link configuration page now?

Check to see if your computer is getting an IP address from the D-Link router.
Here's how to do that, assuming you're using Windows.
Hold down the Windows key on your keyboard then press the letter R.
In the Run dialog box type 'cmd' (without the apostrophes).
Click OK.
In the command prompt window type 'ipconfig /all' (without the apostrophes).
Press Enter.
Look for the line that reads 'Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection'.
Verify that 'Dhcp Enabled' is set to 'Yes".

Followed all the set up steps but my DSL light would not stay on


  • 1 Plug the Ethernet cable into the Internet port on your wall. If you do not have Internet ports installed in your home, connect a phone line adapter to a phone line jack. The adapter makes the phone line wider so Ethernet cables can connect to it. This does not block your phone from use.
  • 2 Plug the other end of the Ethernet cable into the Internet port on the back side of the Netgear DSL modem.
  • 3 Connect the Netgear DSL modem to a local power source. The power plug inserts into the modem via a small port on the rear of the modem.
  • 4 Insert a second Ethernet cable into one of the numbered ports on the back of the modem. Run the cable to your computer and plug it into the Ethernet port on the computer.
  • 5 Look on the back end of the DSL modem for an HTTP: address. Type this into your Internet browser's search bar. The Netgear DSL modem menu appears on the screen.
  • 6 Select how many computers are to use the modem, if you are using it with other DSL modems and set up a password (the default username and password is "admin"). Click "OK" to initiate the changes you made to the menu. You can now use your Netgear DSL modem to connect to the Internet.

    My router cant connect to the internet.


    Did you try a factory reset?

    With the router powered on and running, se a toothpick or something like that to hold the reset button down for 20 seconds. Release the reset button and wait for the router to reboot. This usually takes a minute or two.

    You may need to reboot your computer, although it's generally simpler to unplug the ethernet cable from the router (after the factory reset), wait 30 seconds, then plug the cable back in.
    This is also known as 'renew dhcp lease'.

    If that doesn't work, try powering down your cable modem/dsl adapter, power down the router, then power up the cable modem/dsl, wait for it to connect, then power up the router.
    Some cable modems and dsl boxes 'lock on' to the first ethernet adapter they see, this will make the cable/dsl box reset the lock.

    Xbox Live On Westell C90-610030-06 Isn't Working


    if this is the original xbox you have to use a crossover cable especially if your router is the same as your modem (both the same box) (try google for the crossover cable instructions.) if this is the 360 it should just work, also how is your router plugged into your modem or are they the same thing. If that is the case go get a linksys router and set it up so that your modem-router combo plugs into the linksys router which plugs into your xbox (note that this is a fix for the original to.)

    DsL is a glorified phone connection its not smooth and is always in a state of flaux along with your neighbors there neighbors so on and so forth

    Need to hook up Belkin G wireless router to Motorola SB5120


    Plug your cable line into your modem, make sure it's tight, but don't use a tool. Next plug the ethernet line from the modem to your PC ethernet port. Then plug in your power to the modem. Allow your modem to sync. Don't use the USB line at all. Do not even hook it up unless your computer doesn't have a working ethernet line. Don't run the disk either, it will only install the modem driver that is only used if you use USB.

    If you have issues connecting after that, you may have to go into your ethernet adapter settings and make sure that it is using DHCP. DSL usually uses a different setting (PPP I think) and you will not be able to connect.

    By the way, excellent choice in modems.
