Wireless adapter not recognizing IP address

I had my cable modem changed. Ever since I am not able to get internet service on my wireless router computer and xbox. I am getting service on my hard wired computer, therefore I have been told that the cable modem is fine, that it has to do with my wireless router being reset. I have tried unplugging the wireless router and computer to try and reset, but this does not resolve the issue. Please HELP!!!

Try pressing and holding the reset button in for 15 seconds and unplugging the power cable and plugging it back in. That should reset the router to factory settings. It can also be done through the router's web interface.

Desktop will not connect to internet when router is connected unplug and go through modem will connect linksys program that came with router will not recognize the router when you setup, worked for over 2...


Each network adapter (in the Linksys router, or in your computer) has a unique 12-character code. Some ISPs (Internet Service Providers) will require you to "register" this 'MAC' (Media Acquisition Control) address, before they grant an IP-address to the device (router or computer). So, when you "bypass" the router, you're showing a different MAC-address to the ISP, and they are not allowing that MAC-address to get connected. Talk to your ISP.

Or, some cable-modems check the MAC-address, allowing just one or two computers to connect. Turn the cable-modem off, to make it "forget" the MAC-addresses that have connected to it.
Connect the router to the cable-modem.
Turn the modem on.
Turn the router on.
Connect your computer to the router.
Restart your computer.

Or, maybe the router really is "dead'; try the above, before choosing this option, and before buying a new router.

I had a home network. Now, although the router recognizes an internet signal, the computer doesn't from the router. I still have internet, if I just use the modem. Can you help me get my home network back?...


Plug the ethernet cable from the modem into the Lan port on the router. Your modem and router are trying to use the same gateway ip address. If you know how to do it change the Lan IP address of the router and plug the modem back into the wan port and it should work..

Ethernet connection of DI-524 does not work


You have to make the Ip changes on the laptop not on the modem.
You said you have internet acces on one computer. Then use that computer to find out the exact IP address used by the modem.
On the laptop use the exact same numbers, (IP, Sub mask, Gateway, Primary DNS)
and chek if it works.
If you want to have both computers on the Internet, simply change the last number on the IP address ONLY.

Router not recognizing internet connection from cable modem.


No, you do not need a Hub. You also should not need to add the mac address. On the router, you need to enable DHCP so that your PC can get its IP address from your router. Then try your reboot again. Modem------------->Router----------------->PC. Wait about 1 minute between each device for them to sync up. Make sure that your PC IP settings are set on obtain IP address automatically under Control Panel----->Network Settings

Belkin Wireless N router/Embarq 660 modem/No internet


Make sure your physical connection is correct. From the modem, the ethernet cable should plugged in to the Internet/WAN port of the router. And your computer to port 1. Access the setup page of the router again and Enable the MAC Address Clone setting. Clone the MAC Address of your PC there then power cycle the router and modem. You should be all set.

Cannot connect to internet


Make the Ip address similary to the router, example 192.168.1.25 should work.
SUbnet mask will then fill in automaticaly, just leave it
then Default gateway will be the routers IP. 192.168.1.1
the dns server would be the ip of your internet provider. I would leave it blank at first, see if it will work then. If not, then ask your service provider for it. If they give u a number, then you will have to go into the router properties, and change the dns and stuff like that in there aswell.
good luck

Check your IP address to 192.168.10.1 on the network settings
after that turn modem and VoIP off.
Click on Setup / Manual Internet
Select Dynamic IP under "My internet connection is"
Click on "Clone Your PC's Mac address"
Click on Save settings, if it ask for reboot click on reboot
After the router reboots (NOT COMPUTER), it will take you back to the router.
Once your are in the router, turn the modem on first then the VoIP.
After the modem and VoIP has finish rebootin
Click on the status tab of the router and check uder the "WAN"
Settings and check the IP address. If you get an IP address then check the internet.
If you do not get an IP address Click on Release and then renew.
If you still do not get an IP address click on Advance tab
Click on Advance network on the left and turn UPNP off and save the settings.
After that it should be able to get an IP address and you should be able to get online.

Wpn 824 wireless issues.


if you have set up the wireless connection and enable it in the router, i assume you have disconnected the wired RJ45 cable to the pc, if not do so, as the pc's ip address is still being sent to the wired adapter and needs to be giving the wireless adapter an ip address itself as you cannot have two. Either remove cable or dissable the wired network card and ensure you enabled DHCP in the router settings to automatically give the pc an ip address, ensuring that thw wireless card is also set to obtain an ip address automatically in the TCP/IP properties of the wireless network adapter.
