Re: dynex e401 router

Don't buy dynex routers of any kind!!!

Dynex intentionally has it set up to browse the web through their 3rd party systems (rather than directly through your own IP) when you use their routers. So once you enter all of your IP account information with them, you start browsing the web through their own 3rd party server systems so that they can run background web content in order to boost page views for their affiliates! This slows down your web activity, especially if you using multiple computers with one of their routers! Why send users through dynex 3rd party servers to browse the web? Because the more page views that are coming from multiple IP address, the more SPONSORS they can get to support their websites!

Dynex routers are a SCAM in order to get people to browse the web through their own 3rd party servers!!! Why is it that when I type in a web address (after hooking up their router, and attempting to set it up) that instead of saying “waiting for” or “transferring data from” it says “transferring data from” which is the dynex website! Why would it allow me to only lookup their website (to configure settings) but then block all other web content until setting have been configured??? Think about this, their website isn't already on your computer, it has to be accessed through the internet in order to load onto one's computer. That means the internet is already working through their router, they are just restricting access to other sites until you configure your settings to go through their 3rd party servers for all of your web browsing!

I have used many routers before, and NEVER have I been asked to configure settings on some website before being able to use the product! Most REAL routers don't require any setup or configuration of any type. As long as you properly install everything, and your computers are internet / ethernet ready then you should be good to go. Usually if a router requires some sort of setup online where you are blocked access to all other internet sites until you configure through the manufacturers' site then it's most likely a scam product! A product that serves as a front for getting massive page views (for their sites and affiliates) in order to get lots of sponsorship for having high web traffic!

If you are in the market for real ethernet routers then you should buy d-link, or linksys products instead of dynex! In my opinion, dynex is total JUNK! BUYER BEWARE!!! Don't waste your money on this!!!

Re: dynex e401 router

Unplug both the router and the modem -- wait 30 seconds.. Plug in the modem and wait until the status or ready light stays a solid color (usually green) then plug the router in.

The modem has likely assigned it's IP address to the MAC address of the PC.
We need it to assign an IP address to the WAN port MAC address of the router!
When you hook up the router, the modem is no longer sending data to the correct MAC address.
Unplug the power to both the modem and the router.
Power up the router FIRST, and wait for it to complete it's initialization.
Once the lights have settled down on the router, power up the modem.
Wait for it to fully initialize.
NOW turn on your PC or laptop, and everything should be working just fine.
If not, post a reply or add a comment to this post, and I will try to further assist you.

If you unplugged your modem then you will have to set it back up which includes putting in your current IP address. The steps are in your user manual and you will need the following information to set it up. If you know the web address for your router you can get the info from that, if not then you will have to contact RCN again. You will need the IP Address, the Gateway address, both primary and secondary, also the subnet mask. But all of that should be explained in the user manual. I would suggest reading it first, writing down the numbers needed and then set it up.

Turn off all the above devices.
Turn the modem on, and wait for its lights to "settle" down to a repeatable pattern.
Turn the Dynex on, and wait for its lights to "settle" down to a repeatable pattern.
Turn the Linksys on, and wait for its lights to "settle" down to a repeatable pattern.
Turn your computer on, and wait for its lights to "settle" down to a repeatable pattern.

On your computer, click Start
Click Run
Type CMD and press ENTER
Type IPCONFIG and press ENTER
The Linksys router should have given you an IP-address for your computer, and the IP-address for the "gateway" (namely the Linksys router).
Start your web-browser.
Type (or to connect to the web-interface "inside" the router.
Access the 'WAN' settings-page on the router, to see what IP-address the Dynex router has given to the Linksys router, and what "gateway" IP-address that the Dynex router has offered to the Linksys router.

It might be best to change the range of "dynamic" IP-addresses that one of the routers hands out, e.g., '' to '' for the Dynex router, so that both routers don't try to hand-out IP-addresses in the *SAME* range.

I can not get on the net via my router. I can get out on my laptop directly connected to DSL modem. what am i doing wrong?

That means your router is not yet configured for internet access. If you are on DSL, your modem's IP and router's IP might be conflicting with each other. You need to change the router's IP address. If not, you can simply configure PPPoE settings on the router's admin page. If you can open the router's setup page, look for Internet Connection Type, choose PPPoE and provide the information that it asks you like username and password given by your DSL provider.
