Hi gusbarb, thank you for using fixya. In using your linksys router on a satellite network, it is much like using it on a non-pppoe dsl connection.

the router uses 192.168.1.1 IP address and it may have the same range as that of the satellite connection. TO have the conflict resolved please log-in to the router's GUI then on the first page of the settings, change the local IP address to 10.10.10.1.

once this is done, you may also enable the router's MAC cloning. this feature is used by the router to fake a modem (satellite) to think that it is a computer connecting to it and not a router.

you may refer to this link to change the IP address as well as the MAC Cloning.

You need to set up your router to your notebook. you should have a wifi router and a basic internet router, and the basic one controls your land line internet and that runs through a cable. if you still have the disk that came with your land line router install it on your notebook and it will recognize it.

If you are having difficulties accessing the Internet, you need to do MAC Cloning.

Disconnect your computer from the modem first and plug it to port 1 on the back of the router. Access the router's admin page by typing http://192.168.1.1 on your Internet Explorer. When you get to the router's setup page, look for the MAC Cloning option. Click on Clone MAC Address button. Do this from the computer which the modem was directly connected the last time. This will place the MAC address of your computer into the router. Save settings then turn off the router.

Now connect your modem to the WAN/Internet port of the router. You connection should be: PC to port 1, Modem to WAN/Internet port. Reboot the router and reboot your cable modem as well.

You should be able to go online after that.

Cannot get dlink 524 wireless router to work with HN9000


Hi! I will be more than glad to assist u in this concern..if u bypass the router it will work, the reason why the modem wont talk to the router bcoz the router is not properly setup.. if you are using a cable modem from ur cable company provider- u need to do a mac clone on the router u have to clone the mac address of ur computer. normaly the mac of ur computer is the one register to your cable company and on the setup page of the router just selct on the internet setup, dhcp after clonning the mac address of your computer. u need to connect ur computer directly to the router and then after doing the process connect the router to the modem. if u are using a username and password, u have to use the pppoe settings on the router, if ur isp set a static ip , set it up to the router, to check the ip setting of your isp.. connect the computer directly to the modem and check if u have internet.. then click on start, run and type cmd,it will give u a dos prompt and from there type ipconfig/all and it will show u the ip address, subnetmask, default gateway, dns server.. I hope this will solve ur concern..

I just bought a 4720. Iy has windows vista. I also have an old Toshiba sattelite with windows xp. To connect to the internet the toshiba works every time. The new acer sometimes does but mostly does not....


You will have several problems to install Windows XP in a computer designed to use Vista. I personally don´t think it´s fair.
But your problem possibly is not related with the OS. Are you using a wireless router? If yes, the problem may be your 4720´s wireless adapter (probably internal). You can test it by using another wireless network (most malls, shopping centers, airport or hotels have avaiable public wireless internet access).

Cannot get through internet via ethernet, I Appreciate your help.


You didn't state what kind of net connection you are using, dial-up, cable, sattelite.
If, for instance, you have cable, is the modem connected directly to one computer, or several, via router and ifso on the router is it "wireless" or cable connected?

If you are using anything OTHER THAN dial-up, I recommend, that you unplug the router AND modem, look for "resets" on both, sometimes the reset will look like a small resessed pin that must be pushed on with a pen or toothpick.(hold down for 30 seconds) Leave them unplugged...I would advise 5 minutes, then reconnect cables and power supplys and try again.

If none of this works and you have had electrical storms,(and sometimes wind damages cable if pole mounted) you may have surge-damaged routers/ and or modems. I usually have to reset mine after every lighting storm, and had to replace a damaged router twice. Sadly on another note, I would not recommend vista to anyone, I would however recommend XP media center for computers that have specs for it.
Hope this will help.
