    I have the ethernet cable hooked to the router. Does it stay hooked to the modem also. What am I supposed to do with the blue wired I got with the router

  • auntjojo1534 Jan 09, 2009

    I used the installer that came with the router. I have to the ethernet cable connected to the router and modem now. I don't want a cable contacted to my lap top. What do I do now? If I take the cable off my computer I can't get internet.

No worries. There should be a port labeled 'Modem' bordered in green'. Plug an ethernet cable (looks like an oversized phone plug) in to that port and run it to the DSL/Cable Modem. Power cord should be prtty straight forward it only fits one place. if you have hard wired computers, plug the network cable from the computer into one of the remaing 4 ports, bordered in blue.

If you still have problems, post a comment and I will get a copy & come back to help ya

    it can go from the wireless router to a desktop computer if that situation applies to you, or the ethernet port on your laptop if you wanted to go hardwired. But in reality, there is not a requirement to have a hard wire connected computer




  • Andrew Podner Jan 09, 2009

    ok, that tells me that your laptop isn't linking up to the wireless router. XP, Vista????? what op system are u on?

  • Andrew Podner Jan 09, 2009

    ok, good enough, unplug the ethernet cable, and then try opening the networking center and doing a 'diagnose this connection' on the wireless connection after first making sure that the laptop has recongnized and connected to the wireless network.

    if it hasn't then select connect to wireless network and select the apporpriate wireless netowrk id (strongest signal.)

    If after all of that it is still giving you fits, click start | run | in the run window type 'cmd' (no quotes) then type 'ipconfig -all' and paste the results into a comment here

My computer is not connecting to my Dynex wireless router. I've called my locate cable subscriber and they told me that it's a router problem. I've disconnected the router several times and it shows that...


First off, verify that you can connect to your cable modem directly. After that, hook up your Dynex wireless router and reboot your cable modem. After this, directly connect your computer to the Dynex router (using a cable). If you cannot get an Internet connection, then there is some issue with your Dynex router configuration. It's possible that there might be an IP address conflict with the cable modem. It would be best to contact support for configuring the Dynex.

If you can connect to the Internet with your computer connected directly to the Dynex router, then there must be some router configuration problem affecting your ability to connect wirelessly. You'll have to check the configuration--might be a good idea to completely reset the router and start over. If that doesn't help, you should contact Dynex customer support, as each router has its own configuration specifics. Good luck.

Can't get router to connect to Dell Dimension 2400 desktop


Try turning OFF DHCP from services. This may fix your problem. Look for "DHCP Client", double click on it (or right click and choose properties), STOP the service, then set it's startup type to 'manual'. That'll kill it. See DHCP is what "Gives out/assigns addresses" and on the ONLY PC, it is the First one... 192.168.0.1... Both PC's will be assigning themselves as that, and that will cause a conflict. As the Router now does the DHCP work. Of course ensure you DO have DHCP set on router.

You have two questions thrown. And I will try to answer one after the other. You said you have wireless card. If you have no WIFI in your location, your wireless card could not be used so you need a router from the Broadband connection which your satellite computer will have a wire connection from the router. If you have WIFI booster connected from the router, your wireless card will be used without wire connection direct from the router.

I've had my Icebox for 2 1/2 years. Can't log on to internet.


I do not fully understand your problem I think you are trying to connect a wireless connection from a router to computer if that is the case you need to do this with a USB lead to establish your settings and once the connection is established then you can shift the computer

I have vista on my laptop. i can connect to the router and get internet with a direct wire to the router. i can connect with a wireless connection to the router but cannot get on the internet with that...


Check the wireless switch is on, located somewhere on the laptop. Also Vista has an automated lan setup I believe, so try and refresh the IP and connect to the wireless router which default is the name of the brand usually. If that doesn't work you can right click on the lower right bar in Vista where there should be a symbol with waves or the like. it will bring up the wireless window and if you need help read the help file.

I need to hook up and start using a wireless router, can i get some help starting?


hi licking;
what type of wireless router are you using? a linksys? or a dlink?
do you have color coded cables?

try this:
from your modem(the box given to you by your isp), connect a cable from your modem LAN port to the WAN port of your wireless router.

If your going to connect a pc wired to your wireless router, you can connect a cable from your wireless router LAN port to your lan card of your PC.

give more details and ill be happy to help you. :)
