Cannot receive IP from cable modem

I have used this router for over a year now. Everything works on it, wireless, dhcp server, the gigabit switch. But now it cannot pull a IP from my motorola cable modem. I've reset both devices, the modem and the dlink, reset to factory settings, everything, still won't get an ip from the modem. I know the modem isn't the issue, as I hooked up an older dlink wireless b router and its working fine, its my backup! I have the newest firmware and everything. Any help would be great!

I had this problem with another type of router. If the software is fine and the modem shows no problems, its probably your ethernet port on the router. Alot of routers ports go bad after a certain amount of use. It could have been a defect from start and just started to show problems. Logically at this point its hardware. You troubleshot the rest. Last thing to point at is the WAN port on the router going bad.

How did you connect the computer to the router. If you are using a DSL modem it will have a DHCP server in it that is allocating IP addresses across your network. If you added the router to the computer via a hub or network switch what is the computers ip .
address. Remove the WI FI router - turn off P.C and then Go to cmd or dos prompt if windows based system and type in ipconfig and press enter to see if ip addresses are if they are your dlink router uses so you need to make the dlink router ip addressand subnet setting to match the Modem ip addresses of the DHCP server. Change the ip address of the dlink router to be and change the modem to allocate DHCP IP addresses from to Only do this if IP addresses are 10,0,0,1 to 10.0.0.,254 on the desktop p.c with the dsl or cable modem connected.without the router being involved. (you may need to ask the ISP what the user name and password is of the modem and it should be ip address xx.xx.xx.1 so type this into a browser to change the modem settings. or just remember if the modem is so is the Wi router from d-link and you will have an ip clash problem)
. How do you do this by ethernet connection from only the desktop directly with only the Wi FI . router. Go to a internet browser and type in the URL and then change the router ip address to match what the DSL modem DHCP issues..
Page 14 of Router instructions see
in the manual it states to use a direct ethernet connection for the setup program but you need to be connected to the internet for it to work but if the IP addresses are wrong or clashing will have no internet. You also want to set the modem as the DCHP server and disable the DHCP server in the set up of the wi fi tand set the WI FI router default gateway as the ip address of the Modem. if any DHCP server options in the WI FI router sert to the modem ip address. .

Setup wndr4000 as wireless access point

You need to read the router set up in the manual for a cable modem.

You need to check that the device IP ranges are the same.

There is not a disconnection of the DHCP server in the router listed, but there is some advice on setting up the router as a wireless extender which might be useful.

Speedstream 4100 cant connect

plug the computer into the modem testing dhcp
if it gets internet the modem is the dhcp server
the plug into router by itself disconnected it from modem testing dhcp if gets ip address and no internet it's the dhcp server
dhcp can be done by the modem or router. I bridged mode the modem and let the router do dhcp. of course the router must be pppoe for dsl. been years since I had DSL, hope it helps

Cannot connect e4200 to isp..just loopback address

You shouldn't be connecting the device directly to your ISP, but rather to a modem that is connected to the ISP. The modem will then handle the NAT for your network and your E4200 should be able to pick up a private IP address using DHCP from your modem. Or you can set a static IP on your wireless router as long as that address is available and on the same subnet as your modem. You should also exclude any static IP addresses from being handed out over DHCP so you avoid IP addressing conflicts.

Hello, I am currnetly using a Belkin ADSL2+ modem with wireless G Router and have just been given a D-Link Dir-855 Xtreme N Duo router I wish to use and have been told I can buy a ADSL Modem only to...

I think there is no need to replace the ADSL2+ Router.
Belkin is fine and should work well in combination with the D-Link Router and you would get the downlink data rate up to 300Mbps.
I recommended that you use Belkin Router as ADSL Modem and Dlink to provide wireless access. (Instead of buying ADSL Modem)
So, all you have to do is : -
-Turn-off wireless signal of the Belkin modem.
-Connect the Dlink Router to the Modem (Belkin) through CAT6 Cable.
-Configure the Dlink Router, Secure it and Enjoy 300Mbps Data Rate.

(In this way your Belkin will serve as ADSL Modem and Dlink would be the wireless router)

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.
Hope it helps! Good Luck!

If the Internet light is off then there is a problem with the phone line to the ADSL modem or the modem is faulty or there is a problem at the telephome exchange.
Disconnect the phone cable at the ADSL modem and connect a phone handset to this cable - check for a dial tone and that you can dial out.
If you don't get a dial tone, use a different or new phone cable.
If the phone line is OK then : -
Ring your ISP to get them to test your connection to your ADSL

TRENDnet TEW-432BRP router cannot obtain IP through DHCP

it seems that ur PC & cable modem configuration is ok, now the problem is with ur router WAN interface configuration. the problem would be one out of 2 - first to check whether ur router wan interface is configured properly to obtain IP address from DHCP (if possible, u can give the static ip address with same series as cable modem) second to check with ur ISP.

Surfboard Cablemodem not communicating with Belkin Wireless Routr

If the modem is actually passing out DHCP, then you have to connect the modem to the router 4 port lan side and not the wan port. Give the router a static ip like and you can talk to it and configure the wireless features.
