Are there other computers that are successfully obtaining IP address/connecting to the internet through the router? Try the basics first --use another ethernet cable (a known-working one if possible), use another port on the router, power off and on the router.

Wrt54g2 dhcp problem


You must enable the DHCP setting on wireless router if you've configured the computer's wireless adapter to obtain an IP address automatically. If not you will get the "failed to acquire an IP address" error when you try to connect to wireless network! Also don't forget to configure big enough IP range on router's DHCP setting, because the router won't be able to assign IP to 6 computers if you only configured 5 IP space on router.

I have connected my DI-104 Router to my Motorola Surfboard modem and have two LAN cables to two other computers. However, neither computers recognize the connection. I have my main computer connected via...


Turn the router off.
Use an Ethernet cable to connect one computer to one of the 4 'LAN' ports on the computer.
Turn the router on.
Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD
Press ENTER
Enter IPCONFIG /RENEW
Press ENTER

Look for lines of output like:

IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.40.150
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.40.1

Open Internet Explorer.
Enter: http://192.168.40.1 (if that's the IP-address on your computer for the 'Default Gateway').

You should see a D-LINK "login" web-page.
Try an ID of 'admin' and a 'blank" password.
Once logged-in, you can check the router-settings, and then "configure" it.

Failed to get boot parameters via DHCP


You didn't provide any information about your network which is ALWAYS required to provide any type of help, not to mention a solution.

"Failed to get boot parameters via DHCP, xxx seconds until reboot" simply means that the computer isn't getting an IP address from your router. Setting up your router is another entirely separate topic.


This is pretty simple though, one of three things is happening:

1. Your router is not properly configured to provide DHCP to the phone.
2. Your network cable is bad.
3. Your phone is bad (most likely the RJ45 port since the phone seems to work otherwise).

You can check for bad ports or cables by checking the port status within the router. If the port is lit up, most likely the cable and phone port are fine. This is not 100% though, replacing the cable should always be a consideration even with a lit port.

Router won't log into it's IP address online


It appears to me that you have everything plugged into the desktop PC. This is not the way that it should be done. Plug the cable modem into the wireless router via the Internet/WAN port. Plug your desktop PC into one of the ports numbered 1-4. Now connect to the router via the wireless connection for the router and you should be able to now connect to the internet with your laptop.
If it still does not work, power down everything in this order: Laptop, Desktop, Router, Cable Modem. Bring everthing up in the reverse order (Cable Modem, Router, Desktop, Laptop) waiting for each device to stablize before moving to the next.
Once you get everything working, turn on your wireless security (WPA not WEP) asap to keep your computers and surfing safe, and to keep intruders off your network.

Tiscali wirless connection issue


Sounds like the router may need a firmware update as the DHCP service is failing to run correctly.

You can however just use a static ip address.
First of all find out the network address in use.
eg. 192.168.0.1 - 192.168.1.1 - 192.168.2.1
to find out, - start menu - run - cmd - ok - ipconfig

1. Log on to the client computer as Administrator or as Owner. 2. Click Start, and then click Control Panel. 3. Click Network and Internet Connections. 4. Click Network Connections. 5. Right-click Wireless Network Connection, and then click Properties. 6. Click the General tab, click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) in the This connection uses the following items list, and then click Properties. 7. In the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties dialog box, click Obtain an IP address automatically (if it is not already selected), and then click OK.

Note You can also assign a unique static IP address in the range of 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.254. For example, you can assign the following static IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway:

IP Address 192.168.0.2
Subnet mask 255.255.255.0
Default gateway 192.168.0.1

Can't connect via cable, but wireless works fine


seems you are using winXP-P. Your firewall might be blocking it. Or your virusscan program might be blocking it. Come back after disabling these features and trying again.
