Modem only transmits signal.

router talks to your provider and gets IP address from them, depending on your subscription, you may have a static or dynamic IP.

your computer gets internal (home network) IP from the router, you don't have to worry about that since it is the router's IP address that is seen on the internet (router splits / shares a single internet connection in home networks).

about wireless connection from computers/wi-fi gadgets to the router, must configure the router with the ff:

wireless network name (aka SSID)
security type (WPA/WEP) and password/passphrase/security key
channel (1-12)

the above info must be then set to the connecting computers/gadgets

about wired connection: a working ethernet cable (looks like a phone cord but fatter) and a working computer/gadget ethernet port.


Wii will work - check Wii's website for connectivity options / instructions.

My router refuses to aquire a ip from modem, pc can aquire ip directly from modem

Hi,

My name is Ben and I'm your guru, i.e., mentor, an influential teacher or popular expert: a management guru. - origin from Sanskrit, 'weighty, grave', for today.

As you evaluate my advice and suggestions, there are a few things you must keep in mind:

• I did not diagnose your problem and am therefore only able to evaluate what you tell me. For example, if you ask me a fuse location, that doesn't mean that I can tell you the reason why the fuse blew.
• A thorough diagnostic approach involves the use of technical equipment, such as voltage meters. scanning equipment and other sophisticated devices.
• Lastly, fixing one problem can very easily reveal a problem with something that you might consider unrelated. If that happens, you might want to view me as being incompetent but I must rely on what you do or do not tell me.

Customer's exact description: my router refuses to aquire a ip from modem, pc can aquire ip directly from modem

Discussion: I'm assuming that you are running a recent version of Microsoft Windows such as XP, Vista or 7. This will be a three (3) phase solution. It is imperative that each step be followed in order.

First Step: Let's make certain that your operating system is ready to accept your router. Click on the following link and Microsoft will analyze your system and correct any deficiencies. Microsoft Fixit Site.

Second Step:


Make certain that your router is up-to-date.

Updates are regularly posted on the manufacturer's site to fix issues you encountered while attempting to use their device. The following will guide you on how to keep your device updated and working properly.

These are the common reasons why you need to do an upgrade:

• Dropping or intermittent connection
• Fix the bugs and known issues with the current firmware or driver version
• Basic Troubleshooting did not work

NOTE: For basic troubleshooting tips in wirelessly connecting to your router, please refer to your user manual.

Firmware updates are required especially if you start experiencing connection problems within your local network. An updated firmware also fixes the bugs of its previous version as well as providing new functionalities for the device. However, this should only be done after doing some basic troubleshooting that did not work.

NOTE: For future reference. Updating the router's firmware is not recommended if there are no connectivity issues.

Adapters

A driver update for your adapter is necessary in order to enhance the wireless performance and functionality of your device. This is recommended especially if the adapter is not working properly after you updated the router or the computer itself. A corrupted driver will cause your adapter to stop working.

QUICK TIP: For future reference. For Ethernet and wireless adapters, you need to download drivers while for devices such as routers, gateways and network access storage, you need to download the firmware.

Third Step: Connecting to the Internet using a Router

Choose a convenient location to begin installing your router, such as an open floor space or table. This does not need to be the permanent location of the router. For wireless routers, it may be necessary to re-position the unit after installing it as the signals may not reach all areas needed.

• Unplug the power to your Internet modem.
• Power down your computer(s).
• Plug the power in to your router.
• Connect your Internet modem to the router. The cable plugs into the router jack named "WAN" or "Internet". Turn on your Modem.
• Connect one computer to the router. Even if the router is a wireless model, connect this first computer to the router via a network cable.
• Turn on the computer.
• From the computer connected to the router, open your web browser. Enter the router's address, http://192.168.2.1, and press Enter on your keyboard.
• Click Login. The router does not ship with a password, so just click Submit.

To configure the router to connect to the Internet, you must enter information provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) into the "Connection Type" section in the left-hand column under the "Internet WAN" heading of the router's configuration page. If using DSL Internet, you may need to enter the PPPoE username and password. Likewise, if you have been issued a static IP address by your provider, the static IP fields (including network mask and gateway) must also must be set in the router.

Since this is a wireless router, change the network name (referred to as SSID). While the router comes to you with a network name set at the factory, you may want to use something more familiar for your network. Read Changing the Router's Wireless Channel and SSID -- or some other similiar language in your user guide --for a description of this process.

Verify that this computer can connect to the Internet properly. Open a new web browser and visit a few Internet sites such as Google.com or Yahoo.com.

Finally, configure additional network security features as desired to guard your systems against Internet attackers.

That's the three step program to solve this particular problem.

If you are still having problems, follow the steps outlined in the Windows operating instructions. Unfortunately, most individuals buy computers with the software installed by the manufacturer and don't receive the full manual.

1. Open Internet Explorer
2. Click on TOOLS
3. Click on INTERNET OPTIONS
4. Click on CONNECTIONS
5. Click on SETUP
6. Click on I WANT TO SET UP MY INTERNET CONNECTION MANUALLY
7. Click on NEXT
8. Click on I CONNECT THROUGH A LOCAL AREA NETWORK (LAN)
9. Click on NEXT
10. Click on NEXT [this is not a typo]
11. Click on TO CONNECT TO THE INTERNET IMMEDIATELY .........; and,
12. Click on FINISH


You should now be connected.

All the best,

Ben

For diagnostic purpases I need to obtain the IP adrress of my Zoom 5241 cable modem. My Asus router IP is 192.168.1.1. I recently purchased this modem to save rental fees on the modem that Comcast...


Just use command prompt, at the 1st moment when you connect your router, no matter LAN, USB or wireless/blue tooth or even HDSPA modems connection it will assign itself a port on your machine, to check what ip adress your Zoom 5241 cable modem got, go to Start, then run then type CMD for command prompt screen and in the console, type ipconfig/all on list you will find your router, simply find "default gateway" part and use that local adress xxx.xxx.xyz.xyz.

Not getting any signal to my computer; internet is cut off; receiver light, however, is green on. I have been using a 100 ft cable from modem to my computer on other side of house.... please advise DC


You don't use the same cable now? How are you connected to the modem now? Have you tried: Start/run/ write: CMD
and in the black window that appear write: ipconfig
to see that you have an IP adress?

If you have got an IP adress you can try to type: ping www.google.com
to see that the packages are coming trough the modem out on the internet.

If you got no IP you have no connection to the router/modem.. if you have got a IP but you dont get any ping back, it may be a firewall or something like that.

Is there any case that the port from belkin router


This may happen due to double NAT issue.... the DSL modem might give an IP address in the range of belkin route....that is 192.168.2.X check for the ip address when the computer is directly connected to the DSL modem... now check for the IP adress when the Belkin alone is connected to the computer.... if they both give an IP adress like this 192.168.2.X......(X can be any value) then you will face the above issue..... in that case you can login to router and change the IP address of belkin router from 192.168.2.X to 192.168.15.X this will resolve the issue

Setup


If that is the report that the laptop gives for an IP address, then you have to change the IP address settings.
Go into your network settings, and tell it to automatically aquire an address, and DNS.
Once you click OK, it should sense the DCHP from the router.
If the IP is already set to automatically aquire, then the router needs to be reset to factory defaults. That should put you back to the 192.168.2.xxx settings.

Cant Aquire IP Address Wirelessly


try this... connect the laptop directly to the router using a cable. get into the router interface and disable the wep security. Once it is disabled try connecting the laptop. your computer will ask you that network is not secured and ask if you want to connect anyway. just connect your laptop without the WEP key, if it connects, just go ahead and enable the security again. hope this helps.
