You need to have an Internet Service Provider. You connect the router to a modem from the cable Service Provider or through the phone line for BT. Then you can connect wired or wirelessly to internet through the router.

Hi,
When you get "limited or no connectivity" status what it means is that your computer has connected to the network (in this case the wireless side) but that it has not been able to get an address on the network from the router.
You will need to connect to the router (using a cable preferably) so that you can change some settings on it.
You will then need to set your ip address on your computer manually. Set it to the 192.168.0.x range, I recommend 192.168.0.5.
Then open your webbrowser and go to this address:
http://192.168.0.1/
That is your routers address and will let you log into it to change settings.
What you need to do is look for the DHCP setting and turn it on. DHCP is what gives out the addresses to computers connecting to the network. Usually the required settings are set already, but if it does ask, you will need to set the "start" and "end" address. This sets how many computers can get an address/be connected at the same time. I suggest setting it to around 20 - so do something like this:
start: 192.168.0.10 end: 192.168.0.30
Save the settings and change your ip address back to "option an ip address automatically" and connect back to wireless on the router, you should now get an address and be able to connect to internet :)

You need to configure your router.
For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.0.1
or
http://192.168.1.1
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.
Click on WAN settings and set those settings as your internet service provider settings.
Enable DHCP if you want to get ip from router.
Clickon wireless settings enable wireless then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It isyour password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router.
Then you can connect your wi fi network with that code.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

My network settings don't match wireless router.


First Option :

Connect your computer directly thru Router LAN Port. now
If your Computer is configured thru Static IP address then change it get IP address thru DHCP. and Re start the computer. So it will get IP address from Router and you will be able to access Router Admin thru browser.

Second Option

You will have to reset router to factory defaults. To do that ; There will be Tiny Hole or Switch on Router Back side or front side.
Using strait Paper Clip wire ; Put in that wire in that hole and give very light pressure for 5 to 10 second. Make sure that router is Power ON.

So your router will be resetted to Factory default. Now reconfigure it

I cannot get my laptop to connect to the internet either wirelessly or hard-wired. I have two other laptops, connected wirelessly, and a desktop connected via hardwire. It recognizes the router but says...


if you are trying through wireless, first unplug the wire from the laptop,

make sure that the wireless switch on your laptop is turned on.

click on start, control panel, network connections/network & internet/ Network and sharing center..

right click on wireless network connection Icon, if it says disable, it means it is enabled already.

then click on status..

from here the steps would differ from OS to OS

then click on Support tab (for XP)
check the address type, it should be "Assigned by DHCP"
and if you see the IP Address starts with 169., it is a bad IP and needs to disable the connection and enable it.

if the connection type is "Assigned Manually, right click on wireless network connection icon and click on properties and click Internet Protocol(TCP/IP) and click on properties, in this window, check the option "Obtain IP Address Automatically from DHCP"

click ok and OK ..

again right click on the wireless network connection icon and click on view available networks... click on your router name and click on connect..

now check the functionality.

if you are using windows 7 or vista,

click on status, click on details for the IP Address..

We see DHCP Enabled as YES or NO instead of "Adress type"in XP

if it says no, it means it is assigned manually. to change to DHCP , right click on Wireless Icon, select properties, click on IPV4 IP address and click properties, then select obtain automatic..

then try again..

hope this works,

2 Notebooks without router acces at the same time


Under the DHCP settings, make sure that there is enough IP addresses for the router to assign. Although DHCP is somewhat "automatic" if there is not a sufficient range of IP addresses for the DHCP server to assign, then only a small number of clients can connect. See this page here: http://support.dlink.com/emulators/di524/h_dhcp.html

Also make sure that your notebooks are not set to the same static IP address, only one device can connect to a specific IP address. To check this under Windows XP, Right-click your wireless network connection and select "Status" then "Properties". Highlight the "Internet Protocol TCP/IP" and select "Properties". Make sure that the radio buttons "Obtain IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically" are selected. Click OK and OK to close the windows and save the settings.

I would also unplug the router, wait 60 seconds, then plug it back in and try to reconnect. Sometimes for whatever reason, the routers memory can get corrupted, (just like a computer) and need to be restarted.

Help me with setting up a modem and a router


Are you able to get online directlty from modem? If yes check what is IP address you get from modem, if it is like 192.168.1.xxx, then you need to set connection type as DHCP(not PPPoE), and change router's local IP address to 192.168.2.1 , and reboot router and modem.You can try this steps:
1. Access the router setting via a browser.
2. On Setup, Basic Setup:
- Internet Connection Type unchanged as "Automatic Configuration - DHCP"
- Local IP Address changed from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.2.1
- Settings saved
3. Clicked on Status to check if IP Address value has numbers (not 0.0.0.0). If you have zeroes, click DHCP Release then DHCP Renew.
4. Wired connection to internet OK. Wireless connection from a family PC also OK.
Good to go i thinks.Let us know.

Wireless connection to internet wont work


What Operating System - is it Windows?

Assuming it is, go to the Start menu, and go to Network Connections. Click on the Wireless Network Connection on the right hand side - and view the Status. Is it disabled - then simply right click and enable it. Is it "Not Connected" - then you must attempt to connect to your wireless router. If that's the case, then right click on it and select View Available Wireless Networks, and then once you have that window open - choose Connect.

hi there ...

your isp is at&t? please verify the ip address straight to the modem if its is 192.168.1.1 and if your modem from your isp is set to DHCP or BRIDGE mode.

IF IP address is 192.168.1.1 (DHCP)
... change the LAN IP address of the router to 192.168.2.1 or 5.1 to prevent any IP conflict
by doing this :

1. access setup page of router usually 192.168.1.1
2. under setup tab look for the ip address, change it, then save
3. click on the status tab , and look for a VALID ip address

IF MODEM is set to BRIDGE mode
.... please ask username and password from your ISP coz we would need to set your router to PPOE...
1. access setup page
2. under setup tab look for INTERNET CONNECTION TYPE
3. select PPPoE
fill in username and password
select "keep"alive
save
4. click on status tab
look for LOG in TYPe ===> click CONNECT
if connected : check a valid IP address
if authentication failed verify again your username and password from your ISP

Goodluck!

2wire 1800hg random no internet/random access, repair/wait fixes


It seems that you said your computer gets the ip address from your router,, which means thru DHCP of the router but if you look at the DHCP settings of your wireless card inside your computer ---the DHCP is OFF -- check your ipconfig/all command as shown in your problem too,,, your wless card does not accept the new IP which comes from your router --as DHCP is OFF on your wless card and sticks with the old ip address whereas the router maintains a new ip for your computer in its table and a mismatch occurs and you loose the internet connection ,,,,thats why repair works and then again the IP changes in the router for your computer and your computer's wless card lags behind and use the old ip adress ..... DHCP--- IS DYNAMIC , WHICH MEANS IT RENEWS THE IP address after some time and you computer gets stuck to the old one ,,, hence mismatch. "you make the DHCP -ON on your wless card too. it will be fine."

Router cannot get IP with cisco 675 modem


Hi,

The issue may be due to the existence of two (2) DHCP servers; 1 in the Cisco 675 and the 2nd in the DLink DI-524. You need to disable the Cisco's DHCP server function and assign static IP add & config to the DLink WAN config. This way it will only be the DLink handing out IP adds to the network.

The workaround. Install your original configuration/setting without the DLink DI-524 - PC direct to the Cisco 675 (I am assuming through Ethernet ports). Verify that indeed you are connected to the Internet and can surf the net, check e-mails, etc. Check your Networking Connection Status. Log down your PC's IP Add, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, DNS. For purposes of discussion, let's call this "N1".

After your Internet connection has been verified with your PC directly connected to the Cisco, remove the direct connection and connect the DLink DI-524 in between the Cisco router and your PC.

Log in to the DLink and modify WAN parameters using the "N1" configurations/settings.

It might be of help to disable any security (WEP WPA, MAC etc) at least while configuring.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
