Hawking wireless router (HWRN1A300N) will not connect ot internet

When I went to the command prompt and typed "ipconfig" I got the IP Address and there was also a message that said "unable to contact your DHCP server". I use Comcast as the ISP. I can get to the internet by connecting directly to the Comcast Modem via ethernet.

First of all - your ISP has nothing to to with DHCP. DHCP is handled internally by your router (or DHCP server).
If you did not configure your router otherwise, it should hand out an IP address automatically.
If you ipconfig shows that you have an IP address, then I assume that this address is manually configured.
You should set everything to automatic until you know it works.
So...
Go to your start menu -> Control panel -> Network connections.
Right-click on "Network Connections" and choose "open".
Look for your "Local Area Connection", if you are wired into the router, or something like "Wireless Network Connection" if you're using wireless.
Right-click "Local Area Connection" and choose "Properties".
Double-click "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and see that both "Obtain an IP address automatically" AND "Obtain DNS server address automatically" are selected.
Click "OK" twice and make sure that all property windows are closed.
Go to the command prompt and re-do "ipconfig /all" (No quotation marks of course).
Check the line that says DHCP server, it should be the same IP as your Default Gateway (your router).

If this does not work for you, copy the result form that command here and I have another look.

If it works, please come back and leave a comment. This might help others with the same problem.

Connect motorola modemsbSB6121 to Belink N600 wireless router with out losing internet signal


Step one turn on PC directly connected to ModemsbSB6121 without Wi FI router being involved.
Step two go to Command prompt type in ipconfig (press enter)
Step three note IP address of default gateway and ip address issued to P.C.
Step four type in default gateway address into browser and log into Modem.
Step five look for DHCP Server and allocate IP addresses from at least 50 for example 192.168.0.50 starting ip lease ending ip lease 192.168.0.254
Step six connect Wi Router to P.C. via ethernet cable only - remove ModemSB6121
Step Seven shutdown and restart p.c
Step Eight go to Command prompt type in ipconfig (press enter)
Step Nine note IP address of default gateway and ip address issued to P.C.
Step Ten type in default gateway address into browser and log into Wi Fi Router
Step Eleven Change IP address on Router to 2 as example 192.168.0.2. (it has to match in that modem device would have been 192,168.0.1)
(if it was 10.0.0.1 make wi fi 10.0.0.2 make sure subnet mask is the same like 255.255.255.0)
Step twelve Change DHCP Server to off
Step Thirteen may need to set default gateway to MODEM IP address for example 192.168.0.1
Step Fourteen plug modem router into Wi Fi router may need to plug into WAN port on WI FI router .
Step Fifteen shutdown and Restart Computer
Step Sixteen go to Command prompt type in ipconfig (press enter)
Step Seventeen type in PING 192.168.0.1 (if this is modem IP address and default gateway IP addess)
All this above is to avoid IP address conflicts or mismatching
Subnet mask should be 255.255.255.0
either it uses 192.168.0.1 or it uses 10.0.0.1 make sure Wi FI router is set to different address to Modem Router.
I suspect either a clash occurs or your P.C gets a different IP range from ther WI FI DHCP server.
Happy troubleshooting !

Can you tell me the default IP address for this unit as I have lost the pass word and need to reset the unit


If your computer is plugged into the router, you can easily get the router's IP address by going to your command prompt and typing "ipconfig" without the quotes.

Command Prompt is under Start (or Orb if using Win7 or Vista) > All Programs > Accessories

After typing "Ipconfig" and hitting return, command prompt should display something like this:

Windows IP Configuration

Ethernet adapter Wireless Network Connection:
Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : blah.blah.comcast.net.
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.196
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.1

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:
Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Media disconnected
Ethernet adapter PdaNet Broadband Connection:
Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Media disconnected



The router's address is your "Default Gateway." You should be able to put that address into an Internet Explorer window and it will bring up the configuration interface.

Going inot the router configuration page and reserving your computer with a specific IP address would resolve this issue, If you have never gone into the router config page, it would be reccomended that you not do this, and have a computer savvy person with networking experiance do this for you.

another solution would be releasing and renewing your IP address in the command prompt on your computer

in command prompt, type : ipconfig /release ENTER then ipconfig /renew to renew your ip address, this can be done rather than resetting the router everytime

My router shows up in my available networks menu but when i try to connect to it it says that windows cannot connect to the network. this is happening on two of my laptops


First thing you can do is a ipconfig /release /renew
to do that, go to:

Start>All Programs>Accessories>Command Prompt.
Once thats open, type in ipconfig /release
note, there should be a space between ipconfig and /release and renew
your ip address should come up with 0.0.0.0

Now type in ipconfig /renew
remember a space between ipconfig and /renew
You should see an ip address of 192.168.XXX.XXX or 10.10.XXX.XXX something like that, depending on your network settings.
if you do, you should be able to get on the internet.

If you see an address of 169.254.XXX.XXX
Then it would be best if you powered off the Modem and the Router.

First turn off the Router, Next the Modem.
Power back on in reverse order and see if it is able to connect then.

If all that fails, You can reset the router and see if it will connect then.
You should have a reset button on the back of the router.
Remember once the router is reset, you'll have to redo the security settings.

Hope this helps!

Cannot connect although plugged in


Check the ipaddress. Type ipconfig in command prompt. Then ping a website in command prompt if u get proper ip address e.g 10.132.147.121. Try to ping www.google.com in command prompt. If u are unable to connect. Tried to release renew Ip address.
Type ipconfig /release then ipconfig /renew in command prompt. If you are able to ping google and still unable to connect to website using internet explorer, then issue with browser or with OS.

Internet connection to home PC after adding netgear wireless to laptop


Hi,
You have'nt specified whether your pc is connected to netgear or not. If yes then firstly it should be hard wired into the router to check connectivity.
Now on your PC Click start>run>type in cmd>in the command prompt screen that opens up type in ipconfig and press enter
it will display the ip address
if ip address is 192.168.0.2
and default gateway is 192.168.0.1 and still you're not able to open webpages run this command in the same command prompt screen netsh winsock reset catalog.......
You''ll be able to access webpages...
If ip address comes out to be something else get the drivers of nic card reinstalled on your PC.
