Question about Dynex 4-Port 10 Mbps Ethernet Hub
Just got comcast internet today. I had dsl that connected my computer and xbox through a dynex router. Now with the new set up, except for the new modem, I can not connect both at the same time. I have called comcast and they only say "sorry, can help with 3rd party routers". I have tried to access the router though browser, with little success. anyone have the same problem? any solution?
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.
