Question about Routers

1 Answer

Internet connection fails very frequently!

I use a Wired Router D-link Dir 100. There are 4 of us sharing a single cable internet connection. The router is connected to the cable modem and all other 4 computers are connected to the router. The past week the internet connection used to fail a couple of times a day. To establish a connection again I restarted the modem, and then most of the time the internet connection would come back.
I tried calling my ISP and they told me that the modem is fine. I checked the router and noted that when the internet connection, and I try to renew and release the DHCP no IP addresses appear and the router says that "DHCP client is not connected". After I restart the modem the problem is fixed. Last time I tried restarting the router and that fixed the problem.
I set my router on Dynamic DHCP. I tried setting up a static DHCP and that did not work for me ( maybe I did not know how to set it up properly),

I am looking forward to your reply,

Thank you for taking the time to read this letter

Re: Internet connection fails very frequently!

I will try to see if I can Be of some help...But first I need to know who your ISP is. Also I note that you indicated that you try to renew and release you do not show DHCP connected. You should be doing release and then renew, I believe that's what you meant to say? Also please describe to me how you attempted to set up static IP.
Awaiting your info...!

Can 3 computers (1 desktop and 2 laptops) share the same IP address?

No. Each device connected to a network must have a unique address so that data can be properly routed. If you want to share an Internet connection among several computers, you need a router. The router provides a single IP address connection to your service provider on one side. Then each computer connected to the router, wired or wireless, gets its own internal IP address from the router. As data comes over the Internet, the router takes care of getting it to the proper computer.

It won't connect with laptop

Here are a few simple things to check:
If your PC is connected via wireless:
- Make sure you didn't go out of signal range
If your PC is connected via wired cable:
- Make sure the cable is secured into your router
If both check out:
- Check the cable between your router and internet modem.
If all connections are solid:
- Try using a different cable from the PC to the router, and from the router to your internet modem. Cables can go bad, and a new one could be an easy fix.
If all else fails, you may have experienced an intermitted connection issue:
- Try unplugging your internet modem and router for 30 seconds, then plug in your internet modem first and after 60 seconds plug in your router.
- Try restarting your PC

If none of those work, contact your Internet Service Provider.

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.

Dlink dir 300 internet problem

First you have to make sure that you connected it correctly. the cable coming out of the modem should be connected to the single port (Internet port) at the right when facing the back of the router.

All computers that are wired through it should be able to access the internet. if one of your computers cannot access the internet you may want to check the IP address that you are getting. (go to a command prompt and type ipconfig).

If you are connecting a wireless computer check the wireless security setting which you can find at the configuration (setup) page of the router. to access the configuration page check the owner's manual.

D-link DIR-635 router

Hi, I am assuming that you can connect to your router's web based interface ( On a PC LAN wired to the router, open a browser; Type ""; Log-in username/admin and password/(blank); Go to Tools > Misc and the option to select the WAN speed (bottom); Lock the speed down on the WAN port of your router to 10Mbps (Some versions do not have this feature). Hope this works for you. If not pls post back with your modem brand/model. You may also want to log the IP settings (IP Add, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, DNS Servers) of the PC that is directly connected to the modem when you can access the Internet when not using the router. Good luck and kind regards.
