Re: dynex dx-ehb4 will not change ip addresses
I am not familiar with that router so I will provide general knowledge and you can apply it to fix your problem. It sounds like your cable modem is willing to supply a single IP address. This can and should be connected to the WAN port of your router. The problem is that the router is not assigning IP addresses to the equipment that is connected to its LAN ports. Instead, it allows that single cable modem IP to be assigned to connection #1 and everybody else gets nothing. Get the computer working through it, connect to the router as per the owners manual and turn on NAT or DHCP, whichever it offers. Reboot the computer and connect xbox and you should be good. This was probably not an issue with DSL because your DSL modem would supply up to about 10 IP addresses and they also passed through the router.

Assuming you have connected the computers and the switches in this order:
INTERNET Router --> Switch--> 2 Computers
Also make sure that the main DHCP device whether its your main modem/router or any other device, they are set to assign IP's using DHCP and they can accomodate 2 computers. If DHCP is not enabled assign IP's manually.
If your hub has 4 or 5 connectors, connect one port to your router. This device will NOT work when connected to your cable modem, as the hub does not manage IP addresses like a router does. Hope this helps ... the remaining ports will feed internet, but not provide Internet addresses to a computer.
What you can do here first is to reset the router, you can do this by pressing the reset button of the router for 15 seconds while power is ON and then after that reconfigure the router and check of all computer will e working...........
Here is a link to their Support site:
Select "Troubleshooting/Connection" errors page. On the LEFT, select "Network Help". That should put you in the area you need.
Is the PC's connected to the D-Link able to browse the Internet? Sometimes the MAC Address will bind to certain IP's and must be cleared out when the Router is replaced. Please unplug the power to the router, X-Box and Cable or DSL modem. 1st plug in the power to the DSL/Cable modem until the "Ready" light comes on. 2nd plug in the power to the D-Link Router, wait 30 seconds then plug in the X-Box, power on and test. If a computer plugged into the D-Link will browse Internet then this is the solution to your problem.
You need to enter the router configuration. How you do this varies by
model, but usually involves typing your gateway address into a web
browser. Then, you need to assign your xbox an internal IP address and
activate port triggering or forwarding (depending on the sophistication
of your device) to send information on the designated ports to the Xbox.RICHARDM69
