Couple things...

Is your router a seperate unit from your modem? Is it a wireless connection? If so, power down your modem, your router and your PC. Then power up your modem, wait a minute or two for it to initialize, power up your router, wait another minute to allow it to detect modem, and then power up your PC.

This should get your router connected. If you are now able to see your router (through http://192.168.2.1, or http://192.168.2.1, etc <--- whatever your IP address you are using), you may be able to see your modem from your router's page.

If the router is still offline, try a hard-reset of the router... sometime there is a reset button to press and hold, sometimes a pin-hole to put a small paper-clip (GENTLY) into to press button. You will have to configure the router again for your use, but should be at least able to get connectivity.

If you need to check your IP settings from your PC, you can find them like this:

Start button ---> Run ---> type "command" and click run ---> at the prompt, type "ipconfig /all", and your network settings will be listed. type in "exit" (when you are finished noting the addresses you need) to close the window.

If your are able to get connected to the router, but the internet is not functioning, try a hard-reset of your modem (refer to modem's user guide), and check your Network settings. If you are using a dynamic IP address, your PC should detect the modem through the router and connect from there. If you are using a static IP address (fixed), check your internet service providers information for the correct settings (DNS gateway, etc)

Your modem may have a "series" of lights that either blink normally, or perhaps blink "in code" (like, two flash intermittently at the same time). If there is a problem between your internet service provider and your modem, the error will be evident from the "flashing" (again, check your modem's guide for "error" codes.

Whew! It can get a bit involved, but hopefully your router just needs a re-boot!

If you continue to have issues, post a comment to this thread, and I will be happy to assist you further!

Hope this helps!

    PPS - Sometimes even just right-clicking on your wireless adapter (usually in the program try at the bottom-right portion of your desktop) and clicking on "repair" will disable your adapter, re-enable it and re-acquire your IP address... maybe try that first and see!

First of all, routers come with static ips... (the default is usually 192.168.1.1). So I am going to assume you mean your internet ip is a dynamic ip. Now Im not an ISA expert, so I may be wrong... but ISA should work with a dynamic external IP. And lastly if you cant get it to work, a quick call to your ISP will get you a static IP.

or


Try to configure the IP address of the external NIC in the same network as your router with the default gateway pointing to your router´s IP address.

In the internal NIC, configure the IP address of the internal network in the same subnet as your internal clients, set no default gateway and set an internal DNS.

In the internal network definition, you should put only the networks behind ISA trust interface.

Create access rules according to your needs.

Hello,

The Problem you are having comes up because you probably put on your router before putting on your Computers, including your laptop.

What I would advise you to do is that, always try to put on your Computers first, before turning on your router.

This will make your router to dynamically distribute IP Adresses to your computers and therefore reduce conflict.

And if at any time, you make a mistake of putting on you router before your PC, just switch off your router for 2 Minutes and switch it back on.

It will enable your router to renew IP Adresses to all your Computers without having conflict.

Then Always remember to make your Computers Obtain IP Address Automatically, and your Router Should be set to use DHCP.

This Solution is an exact solution that I used in my office last week, so its proved to work.

Hope this helps you out.

Keep me posted about the problem.

Goodluck

Can't Connectda


Hi,

Restore your router to factory settings, then give your PS3 a static IP address and go into your router interface, find the DMZ feature and put in the IP address that you gave the PS3, just make sure the IP you give it is within the DHCP pool of IP addresses on the router.

The PS3 will now be sat outside the routers firewall giving you FULL access to internet content and gaming online.

Now test connection settings and you will notice you will now have an open connection to the internet.

Thanks

DIR-300 router and broadband ISP connection,is NAT possible?


With a cable broadband connection, the cable line comes into the cable modem. The cable modem does the work changing the cable signal to a network connection and sends an I.P. address to the computer. With some cable internet providers you can hook the network cable into the in port on a router, wireless or wired, then hook up computers to the router. At this point the router gets the IP from cable and uses it's own IP routing for your internal network. Some broadband providers control your access by the computers mac address which registers with the vendor. If this is the case then the easy way to make it work is to get a router which can clone a mac address so the vendor still sees the same mac address.

IP address


Hi tammyhope,
I would guess that your ISP is providing a dynamic IP address for connectivity to the internet. If your router is changing the IP address back to default, I would think that your configuration is not setup properly, to receive a dynamic address, but is set with a static address instead. So what happens is that when you attempt to connect to your ISP your router is resetting. If this is the case then you need to go into the router configuration and set it to recieve a dynamic address from your ISP.

Network


as long as you are not using your own router to connect to your neighbours, as this wont work only one router on the network can connect to the net Im assuming your pc is trying to connect to the neighbours router, so you need to reset the router if you cant access it, it should have no password as default and the ip address of the router should be 192.168.2.1. get into your network cards properties and ensure obtain an ip address automatically on the TCP/IP line is selected. Go into the router settings and make sure enable DHCP is set to allocate ip addresses automatically and that the router transmits on mixed mode b and G, turn off any wep or wpa encryption until you have a connection. Do not use windows connection repair as it will totaly mess up your pc's ip addresses and stop you from connecting to the routers ip address.

Video conferencing


This is because the router is using a NAT firewall and the computers on the router are behind this firewall. You can fix it but only one computer is able to go on the other side of the firewall to play an Internet game or videoconference at a time. To do this you will need to use the DMZ settings in the router set up screen. First you will need to find out the IP address of the computer you want to put in the DMZ. In Win95/98 and ME click on Start and click on Run. Here type "winipcfg" and push Enter. This will bring up the IP configuration screen. In the drop down box choose the network card that you are using with the router. Here it should give you an IP in the 192.168.2.xxx range. Remember or write down that IP address and close the IP config window. In Win2000 and Win XP click Start go to Program and to Accessories. In there choose Command Prompt and type IPCONFIG at the DOS prompt. Remember or write down that IP address and close the IP config window. Now open you Internet browser and put in the router IP address, it should be 192.168.2.1, in the address bar. Log into the router and from the main screen click on Initial setup off to the left. On the next screen choose DMZ. Here you will need to click enable and type in the last digits of the IP address you just recorded earlier into the box there. Click the Enter button at the bottom to save that setting. You should now be able to use videoconferencing and Internet games. Remember to come back into the Router setup screen and disable the DMZ so that your computer can once again be put behind the firewall so it can be protected.
