Question about D-Link Routers
My paradyne router will not issue an ip address.i have static ip address .tech support told me to leave my modem unplug for 30 mins.so it can assign a new mac address.dlink techs can not solve my problem.also,i cannot get into the router to configure.can anyone help !
First, is the problem truly that you can't get an IP address from the router or is it that you can't get on the internet. I will touch base with both issues briefly. Many newly placed routers need the MAC address cloned within the router setup to register with the ISP and recieve internet access. If the PC is truely not recieving an IP from the router, make sure DHCP is turned on and set a range of address you wish use. Tip: limit the number of addresses to only what you will actually use. Make sure your computer is set to recieve an IP automatically and you have the proper client, service and protocols running. Basically, If the PC will run directly from the cable modem, then it should run from the router also. If the PC will not obtain an address from the modem directly then your winsocket may be corrupt. Malware will often do this. It is easily repaired and there are many winsock32 repair tools on the net. Just Google "winsock repair" without the quotes and you will find a multitude of software.
