Your modem needs to be rebooted in order for your router to pull an IP from the modem. To do this, look for a little hole in the back of your modem and use a pen to push the button. Wait for the reboot to finish and then try again in about 20 seconds.

If you meant you lost the power cable, then you should contact Arris to buy it.
If you mean you lost your router that was hooked with the Arris modem, the you can buy any router for house like D-Link, Linksys... and get it configured to work properly with the Arriss modem where you buying at.

I brought my dlink model DIR 601 with me to use at inlaws but forgot the disc on the counter to download it how can i use it


You do not have to use the cd.
Shutdown your PC. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line. This is if you have a cable service provider. If you have DSL, the router needs to be configured with PPOe.

Globe symbol won't turn green.


I was banging my head for 2 days with about 35 different configurations and finally tried the following and it worked just fine. Also, tried connecting 3 computers and they all connected with "NO" issues. Even connected wireless with "NO" issues. Now I am at 20mb download speed...J compared to AT&T 1.5mb download speed.

This is my DLINK model -> (DIR-601 Wireless N 150 Home Router Wireless router)


1. Reset your Comcast Surfboard Cable Modem by unplugging it for 5 minutes.

2. Then reset your DLINK Router to the manufactures default settings. Then Unplug DLINK Router for 1 minute then plug it back in (Just plug your cat5 cable into port 1 and connect it to your computer) there should not be anything else plugged into the DLINK Router at the time you make the changes. Just 1 computer can be connected.

3. Went into the DLINK configuration 192.168.0.1 and changed the PPPOE setting that I was using for my AT&T Modem to Dynamic IP (DHCP). Once you make the changes save them and then unplug your DLINK Router it's off.

4. Turn on Comcast Surfboard Cable Modem and wait until all lights are on. Now plug in a cat5 cable from the Surfboard Comcast modem (NOT A CROSSOVER CABLE LIKE THE CD INDICATES) to the INTERNET port of your DLINK Router. Now turn on your DLINK router.

5. Then turn on your computers or restart them and it will pick up IP Addresses from your DLINK Router

Connect dlink wireless router to cable modem


If your cable modem was operative ...here's an easy procedure:

1. Turn off all network routers, modem, computers..
2. Turn on the power to the DLink router. let it cycle up.
3. Connect your ethernet from the Dlink to the cable modem and then turn the power on to the cable modem and let it cycle up.
..this will "fool" the cable modem into finding your dlink as the "computer" ..since the cable modem is set up for only one computer, if the dlink is the "computer" that it locks in, then go ahead and turn on all other computers and etc...you should be able to get online wirelessly..
Follow the order of events above and it should be cool.

Link light blinking


On these cable modems the link light is supposed to blink when you are connected to a router/pc. If you are hooking up a wireless router new you need to power cycle/reset your cable modem before you hook up the wireless router so that way it can refresh its ip address.

Wi-Fi isn't working


This could be a duplex issue. When you log into the belkin does is assign you an IP address? Have you used a ballpoint pen to reset the EMTA since you have connected the router?

Switched to cable(arris modem) can't set up network


cable dsl same thing. Did you switch providers and get new modem from them? If so. Just delete previous netowrk and install new one let pc discover new one. Also, with your router you got a disc. It should install correctly. Perhaps it is previous network that is hindering you.

CHEC


do a hard reset on your router, and try again. After the hard reset plug your modem into the router but disconnect the power and reconnect the power after 10seconds. Other than that, Dlink tech support should be able to help you solve the problem.
