Re: dynex g router
This looks pretty straightforward. In fact, most routers will work with no setup at all, provided you've connected the cables correctly. Try resetting the router to defaults, then connect it without entering any info. You'll need to disconnect the power to the modem for a few seconds before trying again.

First off, verify that you can connect to your cable modem directly. After that, hook up your Dynex wireless router and reboot your cable modem. After this, directly connect your computer to the Dynex router (using a cable). If you cannot get an Internet connection, then there is some issue with your Dynex router configuration. It's possible that there might be an IP address conflict with the cable modem. It would be best to contact support for configuring the Dynex.
If you can connect to the Internet with your computer connected directly to the Dynex router, then there must be some router configuration problem affecting your ability to connect wirelessly. You'll have to check the configuration--might be a good idea to completely reset the router and start over. If that doesn't help, you should contact Dynex customer support, as each router has its own configuration specifics. Good luck.
The wep key is setup on the wireless router, not the adapter. If you do not have the login information for the router, then the easiest thing to do is reset the router to default settings (this removes any existing keys) and then configure it with a new key. If you reset the router, you will need to connect to the router with a network cable to reconfigure it.
Unplug the router for ten seconds and plug it back in, it needs to reset. Some routers have a reset button. I often wait longer than ten seconds, I find a beer is usually the right amount of time. Sometimes the modem needs a reset also; unplug everything, then plug back in sequence, with the modem first, the wait, then the router, wait, then turn on your computer. That system works for any brand modem and router.
Unfortunately, the DX-E402 is not a wireless router, so it can not transmit its signal without a physical cable connecting the router to your computer. If you want a wireless router that can also connect to your ISP, check out the Dynex Enhanced Wireless G Router:
Have you tried using an ethernet cable instead of a USB cable? USB connections for internet traffic aren't always the best.
If you can make the change to ethernet and then open your command prompt and type ipconfig /all and tell me what ipaddress,subnet mask, and default gateway it says.
Double check if there is any wireless security enabled in your router. Verify if the type of security enabled in your router is already supported by your wireless adapter. If the wireless security enabled in your router is not supported by your adapter, change the security to something that will work with your adapter.
Try connecting your computer with dynex Wireless G USB to different wireless network for further isolation.
The enhaced version just give more range of signal over the normal dynex, regarding the internet provider it depends because sometimes you'll need a password and user to connect to the wireless signal. The dynex is used to connect from a cable signal (RJ-45)internet and then it will transfer the connection to wireless so it can be use from any laptop with wireless connection. So for example you DSL internet connection is a cable (RJ-45) then you connect that cable to the dynex router, then the router will automatically transmit the signal to wireless so any nearby pc can connect to it. If the laptop doesn't have wireless, then you'll have to buy a card to be able to connect to wireless signal or you could by also a (RJ-45 straight-through
cable Cat 5e) to connect from one of the ports from the DYNEX to the laptop. Hope it helps.
When the installation software asked me if I performed the steps in the Quick Installation Guide, I just said yes. Here's what I had done prior (I'm not saying this is what the guide says to do, but, I was able to set up my DYNEX Wireless Enhanced G Router after having done these steps):
Connected the power cable and plugged it in to the wall.
Connected the Internet cable from my DSL modem to the Green port on the back of the router.
Connected my PC using an RJ-45 cable to one of the blue ports on the back of the router.
