Lost my IP address from zyxel


According to me there are two reason for not connecting to internet through your ISP.

1. Configuration setup might have got deleted
2. Driver files may be corrupted

An important thing to know is We would not lose our IP address.

Static IP address wouldn't be changed while restarting our modem,
Dynamic IP address changes on every restart of our modem. To know the Current IP address the following URL will be useful to you. http://www.ip-details.com/

I listed some of the things you should check if the internet on your desktop or laptop is not working.

Computer connected to the modem

1. Check the cables if its properly connected to the modem
2. check the lights on the modem, if they are all ok.
3. Check if the modem is set on standby mode. MOdem should not be on standby.
4.Power cycle your modem. power off your modem for 3mins, and then turn it on. Wait for the lights to get steady and then check your computer if it has internet access.
5. Call your Internet service provider , it can be a problem with their line.



Computer connecting thru the router

1. If its wired check cables.
Some user plug the computers to the INTERNET or WAN port. Computers should be on the LAN port . Modem should be plug into the WAN or internet port.
2. Check the lights where you connected the computer. See if the port light is lit up
3. Check your computers ip address. HOw?

If your using windows

Click start - run - cmd - enter ipconfig - look for ip address.
If the ip address is 169.xxx , this is an invalid ip.

If your using mac

Click apple icon
Click on system preferences
Go to network and then look for tcp ip address


If you get an invalid ip address the solution is either you need to plug the computer to another ethernet port or your router needs to be reset.

If its wireless and your getting 169.xxx
Theres a possibility that the wireless security on your router and your laptop dont match. Check your wireless security and make sure you enter it correctly.

4. Your router might not be communicating well with the modem. YOu can do the steps above to check if the modem is working properly.

5. if the modem is working. That only means you need to setup your router again to the internet. You can do it using the setup cd that came with your product or you can do it manually by calling your router tech support.

Carnt get on internet says invalid ip address


Hello
Contact your internet service provider and get the IP {Internet Protocol} address, which will have 4 sets of number like [135.123.12.2] or [56.456.23.1] such as. This is an unique number, to which your modem connects with the service providers' servers. Even a sigle digit miss, will obstruct the internet connection.

Getting error message: Invalid Ip address


This would normally mean that you have assigned the IP address manually but have also given that same IP to another computer and they are fighting about it.

If this is the case then just check your IP allocations and find out which computer is using the same IP and change it to one that is not in use.

It may also mean that your router is trying to use the same IP as your modem

With just your modem connected to the computer

go to the START MENU / RUN then type CMD and press enter.

Now in the black screen type IPCONFIG /ALL

Take note of the numbers esp in the default gateway, that is your modem)

Now with just the router connected by wire do the same thing.

This time the default gateway is your router if it is the same as your modem then you need to alter it in your router,

You haven't given a model so you will have to work this bit out yourself but your are looking for a setting on your router that starts with the same number you got.
If your default router gateway was lets say 192.168.1.1 then that is what you would be looking for. Change the third block so now it reads 192.168.2.1 and save the settings. This would clear any conflict between modem and router.

If you have assigned IP's to computers they would need to be changed to reflect the routers new IP and again you would just change the third block in the allocated IP to a 2

If in doubt read this a couple of times or print it out.

Cant connect to xbox live need an ip address how do i get one


When the SurfBoard modem is powered up and connects to the internet on the WAN interface, it automatically gets an IP address from your ISP. When another machine is powered up and is connected to the modem via a USB cable, it is automatically using the WAN IP address to communicate with the world. If it is connected via the Ethernet connection, the modem automatically issues it its own IP address for use on the internal network via DHCP. The modem's internal Ethernet connection is 192.168.0.1. The next machine powered on will normally get an IP address of 192.168.0.2.

Cannot share my cable modem connection


You need to connect a router to the cable modem.  The router then gets an IP address from Comcast and provides a gateway between the computers connected to the router.
The modem expects to communicate with a single Ethernet device, and provides an IP address to the first device that provides a piece of data called a MAC address.  By placing a router in-between, the router gets the IP address that lets you communicate on the Internet.  It provides local IP addresses to the equipment connected to the local Ethernet and "routes" those to the Internet.  You can either hook your two devices into the router if it has enough ports, or hook you switch to the router and hook your PC and PS3 into the switch.

Change modem


Hello,

First, I would try resetting the modem by unplugging for 10 seconds or so and then plugging it back in. To be on the safe side, I would also reboot computer. AFter that, I would try to see if it picks up valid ip address. If it doesn't, you may need to call your cable internet provider and perhaps get the mac address of your modem in their system (if it's not already)
