Not making a connection to broadband router

I have a router with a network cable that I can connect to a pc and it works. when I connect the same cable through a CP3008a and a patch cable to the pc as I want to connect another pc to the broadband router through the CP3008a, the network connection is established (2 lights on cp3008a (100mpbs) and data transfer appears to be happening when the properties of the network connection are checked). Am I doing something wrong? If yes then what is the workaround?

Re: not making a connection to broadband router

Hi, If I understand you right, you installed a hub after your router, all your PCS are connected to the hub and it is working. Then you should not be concerned, first, you did right, second, as long as it works and isn't slow or disconnecting then no issues. A few buts: 1. If your router has 4 ports, then you don't need the CP3008a and 2. why only "2 lights on cp3008a" if you have 2 PCS + the router, you should have 3 lights; At the end of the day,if it works and you have no complain, let it be. Kind regards.

I have just 2 computers currently connected to my Dell Power connect 2124...One is accessing the internet just fine but the other cannot acquire an ip.....I put new ends on the cable but stll no soultion

I assume you have connected your switch to any broadband router and then trying to access multiple systems at the sametime.
This is not possible if NAT (Network Address Translation) is not enabled on your broadband router.

Problem connecting to internet while pc and ps3 are hooked simultaneously

I think the broadband connection you are using is not enabled for NAT ( Network Address Translation).
This is required to give internet access to more than one system through a single internet connection.

If NAT is not enabled or supported by your broadband router then you cant access internet through more than one system simultaneously.

Only one computer is able to get online out of the

If you are connecting the switch to a single port broadband modem/router then you will only get one ip address, therefore only one connection to the internet. If you buy a broadband router with multiple ports, with a builtin dhcp server that gives all other pcs on the network a private ip address, then all connected pcs will get access to the internet as it is routed over the single public ip address given by the isp (even if you use a switch as well!!).

''Network Cable Unplugged'' problem on Linksys but not on D-Link

Most likely the connection inside your new gateway is bad - you should return it under warranty & get a new one.

Switch compatibility problem.

I think you need to go from the leased line to the ROUTER first. The switch you said was as far as I can tell there is NO IP for the DLINK. If that's the case your router needs to be before the switch and after the modem.

Where does the phone line go in the lynksys box.

Phone Line?

You need a cable or dsl modem to connect to the internet. From the modem you run an ethernet cable to the "broadband" or "Internet" port of your router.
Also make sure your lynksys is a router, not a switch

Hope this helps

  • access router's configuration page and set the settings IP addressing to DHCP or auto assigning the IP addresses and the DNS

Connection problem between modem router and hub

Sounds like you may need what is called a "Crossover Cable' connecting your router to your hub, or if either device has an uplink port, use it on one device to connect to normal port on other device. Here are instructions for making your own cables:
