I have reconfig the router and im up but now i can connect okay on my laptop i just cannot connect to the internet, its not picking up the correct ip address.

    Firstly to copy form a command prompt right click on the title bar of the dos window and from the drop down menu choose Edit and Mark. Then you can drag your mouse over the text in the window to select it. Once you have the text you want selected you press Enter and this puts the text in the clip board. I think it will loose any formatting when you paste it here but hopefully we can still read it. If you plug an ethernet cable from your laptop to your router does it work ok? If not you probably have a DHCP problem. If it works with the cable connected then you have a problem with your wireless connection.

    Please open up a command prompt. Click on start -> run and type cmd Type the follwoing command and press enter. (Without quotes) "ipconfig /all > c:\output.txt" This will create a file at the top of your c: drive named output.txt with the current tcp/ip configuration of your network card(s). Copy the contents of this file and paste it here and we may be able to see a problem. It sounds to me like you have a DHCP problem but the output will tell us more.

I have just bought a Dynex [DX-E402] router and i'm trying to connect my laptop and pc to the same internet through it but its not picking up any internet access. If i connect my pc directly from my...

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.

How do I manage my network using a d link dir 655 wirless router, without buying network magic?

You can open a web-broswer such as Internet Explorer and enter the IP address of the router (

You may also connect using the NetBIOS name int the address bar (http://dlinkrouter).

Select Admin from the drop-down menu and then enter your password. Leave the password blank by default. Type in the graphical authentication code (if you cannot read it, click Regenerate).

You may click Setup Wizard to quickly configure your router.
If you want to enter your settings without running the wizard, click Manual Configuration.

In your rounter you can see who is connecting to your network and also block computers/devices from using your network.

Hope that helps.

How do you hook up a dynex 802.11g wireless router

To setup your Dynex router you can follow the below steps
  1. Connect the router with a power cable and switch on the poser, reset the router with its reset button normally you can find the reset button on the rear side of the router for 30 seconds and then switch off and on the power
  2. After reset conenct the router to any laptop or desktop with a cable and also connect the router to the modem or the internet service provider cable
  3. after all connection lights will come on go to right hand side corner of the computer and check if the network connection is showing connected
  4. Once you are connected with a wired connection open a page of internet explorer and type in router addess normally it will be and then type the username as "admin" and the password is blank so leave the password box as blank
  5. You need to set it up as per your internet service provider if you do not have any fixed IP address provided by ISP then select dynamic IP address and then click on clone mac address after saving these settings on the router setup page you can check if you are able to access internet then you can do the wireless settings
  6. Once the router setup page is open you can confugure the router easily without the CD setup.
  7. The advantage is you do not have to run the setup CD and you can also do wirless settings for your wireless laptops or devices
  8. Go to the wirless settings page and you can select the wireless on and off or you can setup a wireless security to avoide your router with unauthorized acess
  9. I would recomend always keep the wireless network secured if you are using the router for a home or small office as there can be people who will be using your bandwidth for free without your permission
  10. one more tip i would like to give whenever any kind of setup is required on the router do it by a wired connection only and not thought a wireless pc or laptop as it can disconnect you from the router in between of your setup
  11. WEP is the kind of wireless security which is easy to setup and remember and most wireless cards of laptops and computers support it

Can not connect to wirless Dell 1525

Does it have awirless card or just an ethernet cable card?

My laptop will not reconize my router nor any other in the area

Seeing as your other computers seem to work well I doubt it is your router that is at fault

I would start by checking all the wireless and network settings on the machine that is having problems.

I would turn off "wireless zero config" from the administrative tools / services first of all.

Then I would check the TCP/IP properties to ensure that "find ip address automatically" and " find dns servers automaticaly" are ticked.

As far as the problem starting since you went to VOIP it is possible but unlikely that that is the cause, and as far as getting booted when the phone rings that is for sure a cable company issue and certainly one you should follow up on as it sounds like a poor installation or faulty equipment (hope you are not a rogers or shaw customer as that would be your problem with the booting right there)

Netgear wirless and acer laptop/ lapt. not seeing mac address/net

Probably your adapter has one ip fixed address.
Check on the network, your ip adapter settings and be sure that the option "obtain the ip address automatically" is selected.

Go to -->> Control Panel --->> Network Connections --->> Select your connection and go to properties --->> in the center field Select internet protocol TCP/IP---then hit--Properties---Go to General and set your connection as automatically there.

check your control panel to see if wireless is still there. If it isn't go to add hardware and see if this picks your wirless back up.

I hope this helps

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. - -
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 to For example, you can assign the following static IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway:
