To resolve this issue, remove the network bridge. To do so, follow these steps: 1. Click Start, and then click My Network Places. 2. In the left pane, click View Network Connections. 3. Look for any connection that is bridged. 4. Right-click the bridged connection, and then click Remove From Bridge. 5. Repeat step 4 for each connection that is connected with a bridge. 6. When the bridge is removed from each network adapter, right-click Network Bridge, and then click Delete. 7. Click OK. When the all the bridged connections and the network bridge are removed, the broadband hardware is automatically detected.

SOURCE: new pc.. old router. not detecting internet

i'm using the MN-100 router right now and it works perfect with Vista! with DSL PHONE LINE
log into your base station(MN-100) defualt password is: admin
1. Make sure 'DHCP server' is set to 'Enabled'.
2. 'Network Mode' setting must be set to 'Routing mode'.
3. Works with Firewall enabled.
GO TO the page (Wide Area Network (WAN) Settings
enable: PPPoe-uses point to point protocal over ethernet
then below that enter user name & password same as you did the first time you used your DSL i include (MY)service name too(SBC Global) when done go back to home page click connect may take a min or two your done! after initial setup is done its fast and you dont have to put user name or pass in again either!

SOURCE: Can connect to router, but not to internet

Is the main computer connected to the router or to the internet directly? If it is a cable modem for the internet, make sure you turn that off, as well as the router, and connect the cable modem to WAN on the router and put the modem on first, then the router. Connect the computers, xbox, etc to the router

SOURCE: Connectivity issues, modem light off and strange behavior.

Hello Brandon, well what I'm thinking here is that, the reason that this one PC is Still Connected with a new IP address, is that it is Prob Connecting to some other Connection outside your Home, maybe some other open wireless Connection, in your Neighborhood, you might want to check on that if you don't know how let me know and I will instruct you how)
next first of all make sure that you are getting power to the router, and if you are, then on a PC that is wired Directly to the Router, follow these directions;
1. depending on what windows operating system your using go to your control panel
2. find an icon called network connections and click on it so it opens
3.when it opens find an item that says LAN OR HIGH SPEED INTERNET, under that will be a icon listed that will indicate local or lan connection-right click on it and you will get a drop down menu, on that menu right click on properties.
4.under where it states; THE CONNECTION USES THE FOLLOWING ITEMS, find an item that says '''INTERNET PROTOCOL'"' AND LEFT CLICK ON IT ONCE just to highlight it. then find the button that says PROPERTIES and click on it.
5. you will get another box that pops up, in this box is where we are going to enter all your ROUTER INFORMATION,
6.IN THE BOX CLICK ON USE THE FOLLOWING IP ADDRESS. then in the IP address field put in this address; the above address will be your PC address.
now under that you will find an item called; USE THE FOLLOWING DNS SERVER ADDRESS; and the next item under that is; PREFERRED DNS SERVER; in this field enter in;
and under that you will find an item called; ALTERNET DNS SERVER; and in that field enter in after your done with that on the bottom of this box and the bottom of the box thats under the one that your on click on OK, AN THEN CLICK ON OK AGAIN, this will close both boxes.
7. now X out of everything that you have open till you see just your desktop. up internet explorer, and in the address field, type in and click on enter, now this should bring up your router's page, and from there you should be able to configure every item an PC that is connected to your router,
I hope this information helps, you may want to print this out and follow it step by step, so it will make it easy on you.

Occasionally I cannot go online because my computer says no internet access. I unplug the router for 30 seconds, plug back in, then it is working properly. Is the router defective? I have had the router...

It could be your router is becoming intermittent, but also your ISP connection could be dropping and not resetting properly. I have this issue occasionally and it is the ISP generally dropping my connection. Only way to test is to try a known good router and see if it corrects the problem. With data speeds increasing it is getting more difficult for the ISP to provide reliable service especially over ADSL. I went 5 years without EVER resetting my ISP connection, then started having increasing difficulties with my connection in the past 3-4 years due to higher data rates being introduced.
