I have a wrt610n wireless router and a sb5120 cable modem. i can connect directly to the modem and get super fast internet but when i try to go through the router i cant get internet. i tried restoring the...

It's not the issue with the subnetmask. You said that if you connect directly to the modem, it works. that means the modem is working fine.
Now you have WRT160N router. This router has issues with the firmware. It will be better that you should upgrade the firmware of the router.
Firmware is the software of the router.
Download the latest firmware of the router. Go to the manufacturer's web site and download the firmware of the router.
Open the set up page of the router and upgrade the firmware of the router. Once you upgrade the firmware of the router, reset the router.
On the router you will find a small reset button, hold it down for 30 seconds. release it. wait for 1 minute. Now unplug the power to the router and plug it back in.
Now you will need to reconfigure the router according to the Internet service provider.

Installing BT Voyager 105 on XP Pro PC shows newdev.dll error

I recently had this problem after buying a voyager 210 modem/router to replace the voyager 105 (in my case supplied for AOL broadband)

I tried to uninstall the voyager 105 and encountered exactly this problem - newdev.dll missing, Admin privileges required

After alot of Internet searching I found no answers. But in desperation tried this and it worked. I am by no means any computer expert so don’t blame me if this does not work for you, or damages your machine.

To install my 210 modem I was following instructions found here - But first I had to get rid of the 210

Here is what I did, exactly as I did it (some of it is probably unnecessary) Further below is a condensed version I expect would work.

1) Firstly I restarted in safe mode by pressing F8 in start-up ( I was doing this because i had remembered an administrator profile and considered attempting to uninstall from there.)

2) I logged on as the administrator.

3) Attempted to uninstall the voyager 105 via control panel and via the uninstall icon in the programme folder. - Both Failed with the above-mentioned problem.

4) I navigated to programme files. (Start> My computer> C drive> Programme files)

5) There I highlighted the folders "British Telecom”, "BT Voyager 105 ADSL modem", " Voyager Modem Drivers", "Voyager Test". I cut these folders wholesale and pasted them to my USB pen/stick (incase I needed to put them back)

6) I then ran disk cleanup (Start> All Programmes> Accessories> System Tools.)

7) Then I turned off my computer and unplugged the USB pen/stick and the USB and DSL cables from the back of the Voyager 105.

8)I turned the computer back on (starting up normally), logged on with my normal username which has admin privileges. Ran the driver install for my new router (previously downloaded from BT at –( It stated that a BT driver was already installed.

9) Navigated to add/remove programmes (Start> Control panel> add/remove programmes) selected the BT driver from the list selected uninstall …. AND IT DID IT! No error, or messages about newdev.dll or privileges.

10) This left me free to install my new driver and go through its install process ending in plugging the USB into the back of the modem and having internet again.

Here is what I expect would work

1) Turn on and log on to any account with admin privileges.

2) Navigate to programme files. (Start> My computer> C drive> Programme files).

3) Select and delete (or to be safe, cut and paste to a removable drive) the folders "British Telecom", "BT Voyager 105 ADSL modem", " Voyager Modem Drivers", and "Voyager Test".

4) Remove removable drive and run disk clean up (Start> All Programmes> Accessories> System Tools).

5) Then I turned off my computer and unplugged existing modem.

6) Turn on computer log back onto account with admin privileges. Navigate to add/remove programmes (Start> Control panel> add/remove programmes) selected the BT driver from the list selected uninstall.

7) Install desired drivers/modem.

Intermittent connectivity to modem at power up

I would first recommend not powering down the router and modem. Leave them always powered on. The router should be acting as a firewall so that your computer can't be "seen", and make sure you have an antivirus program and run regular scans. You can just power down your pc if you're still worried about somebody getting into your pc. Now that you're protected, power up the modem and wait a couple minutes until all lights are stable. If in doubt as to how long, wait 5 minutes. Then power up your router. After a couple minutes, you should be good to go. Leave both powered on at all times to see if this fixes it.
If you continue to experience problems, I'd recommend updating the firmware. There should be a setting in the router to update the firmware, or you can go to Belkins website and download the firmware (remember the path to where you save it to), and then upgrade the firmware.

I have to power cycle modem as I keep loosing IP address

Depending on the internet provider, most IP addresses are set for a certain amount of time before the lease on them is up, in most cases the modem automatically renews the lease and the modem keeps the same IP address. In some cases, when the lease expires, the modem receives a new IP address from your ISP's dhcp server. In rare cases, the modem does not receive an IP address due to either a failure in the hardware (of the modem, hence faulty modem, time to replace) or the firmware on the modem needs to be upgraded. To upgrade the firm ware on the modem, a call to your ISP's tech support should solve that.

D-link 524 looses conection

check the timeout when idle settings on the router. you need to set it to 0 for never break the connection.

other options are to upgrade the firmware of the router.

you should also isolate the problem by connecting the pc directly to the modem to make sure the same problem doesnt occur. if it does then contact your isp.

good luck

Belkin Router - Network works for 5 minutes than everything loses internet capability.


           This issue usally occurs when the router is able to save the data stored or in  other words the Router id not able to AUTHENTICATE,  but as you already got a new router and you have already done the fireware upgradation of the router. we can also upgrade the firmware of your speedstream modem.


plz do these following steps ,( plz disconect the router from the computer and modem completly while doing the steps )




The Efficient 5260 modems that can be upgraded are as follows:

Look on the label on the bottom of your modem. It should read:

SpeedStream 5260 Ethernet ADSL Modem
Part Number: 060-5660-00x (where x=any number)
Revision: any (all revisions seem to work)

If your part number reads anything else, your modem is most likely not upgradable.

For those curious, 5660 models 003 and earlier do NOT support G.Lite ADSL, only DMT. If you are buying a 5260 or 5660 model secondhand, and your DSL ISP uses G.Lite DSL, it would be a good idea to check with the person selling you the DSL modem.

UPDATE: As of 5660 Firmware v2.3.0(2) and later all 5660 including 5260/5660 hybrids support G.Lite ADSL. It pays to use the latest Firmware.
