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.

I plug my ethernet cable to my router/modem. But it doesn't work. I cannot listen to any radio.


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.

The easiest way to release and renew your IP with a router that doesn't have that feature is to unplug the modem (not the router) for a few minutes - overnight while your sleeping to be sure.

    Hi, Our modem seems to work fine when plugged directly into a computer (we get internet okay), but if we plug it into anything else it won't get internet. We've tried two different routers and a Wii and...


    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!

    Same old question, but I cannot get a connection between my Netgear wireless router WGR614 to my cable modem.I follow the set up via the router's wizard. But no luck. Even unplugged the modem for 15 mins...


    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.

    Cable Network Routing with Zyxel 600


    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.

    Distributing the internet either by wireless or by Ethernet cable


    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.

    No connection


    First make sure that your computer is able to go online when connected directly to the modem. if that is working then connect the modem and the computer to the router. Reset the router for 30 seconds. You will find the reset button on the back side of the router. Hold it down for 30 seconds. Unplug the power to the router. Plug it back in. wait for a minute. Now open the rotuer set up and configure the router.
