Lost my IP address from zyxel


According to me there are two reason for not connecting to internet through your ISP.

1. Configuration setup might have got deleted
2. Driver files may be corrupted

An important thing to know is We would not lose our IP address.

Static IP address wouldn't be changed while restarting our modem,
Dynamic IP address changes on every restart of our modem. To know the Current IP address the following URL will be useful to you. http://www.ip-details.com/

I need internet on my dsi


Well, have you done the homework?

1. DSI needs WiFi, ie, wireless internet. Do you have a wireless router or wireless modem router in your place?
2. If yes, have you enabled the wireless radio in the router. This can be done by opening up the router options by typing the IP Address of the router (it should be somewhere written in the router itself) and login. If you don't know the password, google your model number and you will get all information like default ip address, login etc. If possible download the manual from the manufacturer website and go through it to familiarize the options. (If you have an apple router, you will need "airport utility"..google).
3. Once logged in as "admin", look for "wireless" options (Manual will help you), enable "radio", "ssid", note down the ssid name, and for troubleshooting purposes, leave the security "off/disabled". Save/apply changes.
4. Make sure wireless "G" is selected or a mode thats compatible with wireless "G" (go through the options, mostly default option will suffice). If this is in another page, again, save or apply changes.
5. Reboot the router, wait for a couple of minutes till the lights for internet and wireless appears.
6. From DSI, search for available networks, find the ssid name that you have noted down and click connect.
7. Hopefully, it should connect, otherwise, you may have to manually enter DSI IP Adress, subnet mask (255.255.255.0), gateway and dns servers (both router IP Adress). If your router address is, say 192.168.1.1, then give dsi an ip adress 192.168.1.xx where xx is a number between 2 and 255. That is, what ever ur router ip address is, just change the last digits to anything under 255, excluding the router address. Now try again, hopefully everything should be settled.
8. Look into DSI manual to see whether it supports wpa/wpa2 security or just WEP. You may also have to take into consideration any other devices that connect to router wirelessy, like laptops, smart phones, tablets etc. If all of them supports wpa/wpa2, go back to router options and select that security, create password, write it down. Otherwise select "WEP" encrryption. (The point to remember here is the lowest common denominator, ie, if DSI supports only WEP, selecting WPA/WPA2 will be useless, as DSI will not connect, even if it sees the SSID.
9. Save changes, reboot router, wait for lights to steady.
10. From DSI, again select your SSID name from available networks (just to make things easier, shut down DSI, restart to disconnect earlier connections), it will ask for password or both password and security type. If DSi supports WPA/WPA2, and ur security is set as such, and DSI is not connecting, play with the options, if any, like "WPA only", WPA2 only" WPA/WPA2" and try to connect.

You should succeed with this much details. Good luck

When I connect my modem dorectly to my pc it works fine with IP address 192.168.1.33. When I go through My D100 I have no connection anf the IP has changed to 192.168.0.100 If I reinstall on dynamic IP...


Hi,

Improve the Fixya.com experience for everyone by voting!

I think a functional explanation may be of some assistance to you.

The IP address is assigned to the server or client software, but not to the physical workstation which the software or device is installed.

D-Link and virtually every other provider uses IP addresses from a Private IP Address class, which is special class of IP addresses that is reserved for private local networks (not to be confused with Virtual Private Networks, or VPN).

The default IP address is 192.168.0.x and assigned automatically. The most common IP address in any local system is 192.168.0.1.

Over the years, I've found that it is unnecessary to manually TCP?IP settings unless the automatic settings or configuaration has failed When I do have to change the settings, the following are used on Local Area Networks (LANs):

IP Address 192.168.0.1
Subnet mask 255.255.255.0
DNS Do not change
Gateway IP
Address None because the default should be 192.168.1.0 or whatever was
automatically assigned.

Some additional information that should assist you in better understanding a LAN.

The SSID (Service Set IDentifier) is a token which identifies a 802.11 (Wi-Fi) network. The SSID is a key which is set by the wireless network administrator. You must know the SSID to connect to a 802.11 wireless network. However, the SSID can be discovered by network sniffing/scanning. By default, the SSID is part of the packet header for every packet sent over the WLAN.

SSID access points continuously broadcast radio signals which are received by client machines if enabled. Based on the automatic or manual configuration, the client can connect to the access point. A SSID is generally 32 bit long, but when displayed to the user, it is projected into a human readable ASCII format. Multiple access points can possibly share the same SSID if they are for the same wireless network. Many wireless access points support broadcasting multiple SSIDs, permitting the formation of Virtual Access Points. Such Virtual Access Points partition a single physical access point into many logical access points, each of which can have a special set of security and network settings.

SSID Security Issues

Every user of the network must configure the SSID into their system. If the network administrator seeks to lock a user out of the network, the administrator must change the SSID of the network, which will require reconfiguration of the SSID on every network node. Some 802.11 NICs allow you to configure several SSIDs at one time.

Default SSID's

Most 802.11 access point vendors allow the use of an SSID of "any" to enable an 802.11 NIC to connect to any 802.11 network. This is known to work with wireless equipment from Buffalo Technologies, Cisco, D-Link, Enterasys, Intermec, Lucent, and Proxim. Other default SSID's include "tsunami", "101", "RoamAbout Default Network Name", "Default SSID", and "Compaq".

Every time a client connects to the wireless network, the SSID is communicated in plain text format, which can easily be sniffed by eavesdropper using sniffing applications like Kismet. Hence, additional security techniques are required to be implemented in order to enhance the wireless security.

All the best

dhcp: needs serail number of mac address
it picks up automatic
pppoe: needs username and pws from isp

*the ip address has to be diferent from the isp modem:
isp modem 192.168.1.1 linksys 192.168.1.1 incorrect
isp modem 192.168.1.1 linksys 192.168.2.1 correct
change the ip on lan settings on your router

*wireless: ssid by default is linksys
ssid: linksys
wep : none

I cannot get internet connection, i am on wireless 1 and it is asking for a password also i don't know the ip address, subnet mask and the dns


Even if the modem/router you are trying to connect to allow 'dynamic IP' address resolution (eg. no need for coonecting device to know IP address, subnet, etc...), you will still need to know the specific 'password'/ 'Security Key'/Encryption Key for your specific modem/router Wifi coonection - I am assume that you also know the correct SSID (Broadcast system ID for Wifi) for this Wifi Connection.
Hope it clarifies a few requirements.
