Re: router will not receive an ip address. have to
You need to hard reset the router first by pressing the reset button at the back of it for 30 sec. Then do a power cycle. Unplug the power to the router first then the modem. Make sure the modem is plugged in to the Internet/WAN port and your PC to port 1 of the router. After 1 min power on the modem first then wait for the lights to go solid, then power on the router. If you still you don't have internet, you need to perform MAC Address Cloning. Open the router's Setup Page and look for MAC Address Clone feature, enable it and save. Perform a power cycle again. That should do it.

Somewhere in the setup or settings for the network on your receiver make sure DHCP is turned on. DHCP (Dynamic Host Control Protocol) allows it to get a IP address and subnet from the router so it functions on the network. Likewise DHCP must be enabled on the router as well otherwise the downstream device (your receiver) won't be able to get an IP address.
Hello, Without further information, my best guess is that your modem has the same IP address as the common IP address for routers and probably the Wii. Most wireless routers have the address 192.168.1.1 Try connecting a computer using a hard line (a network cable) to your router and type in this address, it will most likely come up. If it does change it's static address to 192.168.1.12 (actually any number behind the last period above 1 and under 255.). Also set its gateway to 192.168.1.1 to access your modem. (Also in the router settings which are found by typing the address mentioned above, 192.168.1.1) Be sure to note this new address if you want to access your router without resetting it and using a hard line again. The Wii should automatically pick up signal from the wireless router. If for some reason you want to switch between the Wii and a Router by way of hardline, you must contact the maker of your cable modem (or cable company) and find out what the IP address is in order to access it's settings (the same way; by typing it's IP address into a browsers address bar.) By setting the modem to have a different IP there would be no conflict with the other products which (rightly) have the IP address of 192.168.1.1 as a default. Hope this helps!
plug the one ethernet cable from the modem into the router wan port . The modem will have an ip address note this and then change the ip address to one higher than the modem for the router's ip address and change the ip address in the router to make the gateway ip address the modem ip address.
Disable the DHCP server in the Router iIf the modem has an active DHCP server in the router.
Plug the rest of your network into the other router ethernet ports.
disconnect all the connections from the router. connect only the computer to the port 1 on the router. check the lights on the router. Reset the router for 30 seconds . unplug the power to the router. plug it back in. wait for 1 minute.now check the IP address on the computer.
Win XP = click start ==> run ==> type cmd in run box and click ok.
you will see the command prompt. in the black window type ipconfig and hit enter.
now you will get the IP address and the Default gateway. Default gateway will be the number of your router.
This will open the roputer set up. not check the settings on the router.
If you connect the modem to the router, it works. now reconfigure the router as per ISP.

Can you pls confirm if you have cable or PPPoE connection. Also, please connect the modem directly to the computer and let me know the results:
A. Click on Start—Programs—Accessories—Command Prompt. B. In Command Prompt window, type in 'ipconfig' and hit 'Enter'. Note down the IP Address, Subnet mask & Default Gateway here.
Once I have this information, it will be quite easy to configure the router.
You have to set different ip address. To clear this up this how I got my setup. I have verizon internet. I use a westell 6100g modem, I have the local ip address set for 192.168.1.1 and I got a linksys wireless router and the ip address set for 192.168.9.1. Then I plug my modem into the wan port and it works. What am I doing is setting a static ip address from my modem to the router and using the router to distribute my address through the network. If you have any printers on the network you need to change that numter to 192.168.9.x number. If you don't have two different numbers set the router will take over.
Sounds to me that the router is not recieving the signal from the Modem. Some Modems require you use a 'cross-over cable' to plug in a router like that (from modem to WAN on D-link). Make sure the IP address of the D-Link is on the same subnet as the Modem, i.e. the cable modem is preset with an ip address scheme (proabably 192.168.0.1 or something) and your router should have the same 192.168.0.x address depending on what the modem is).
Another thing you can try would be to "bridge" the modem to the router.
