If you connect the modem to the computer, does it go online ?
If your computer is online through the modem, then the modem is working properly.
Check the connections between the modem and the router.
Reset the router for 30 seconds , unplug the power to the router and plug it back in. Wait for 1 minute and set up the router again manually.

I have just bought a Dynex [DX-E402] router and i'm trying to connect my laptop and pc to the same internet through it but its not picking up any internet access. If i connect my pc directly from my...


The modem has likely assigned it's IP address to the MAC address of the PC.
We need it to assign an IP address to the WAN port MAC address of the router!
When you hook up the router, the modem is no longer sending data to the correct MAC address.
Unplug the power to both the modem and the router.
Power up the router FIRST, and wait for it to complete it's initialization.
Once the lights have settled down on the router, power up the modem.
Wait for it to fully initialize.
NOW turn on your PC or laptop, and everything should be working just fine.
If not, post a reply or add a comment to this post, and I will try to further assist you.

You mentioned in your question that you had a router. If it is actually a modem, then yes, you need a router.
The reason that the Ethernet hub is not working is that your modem will only give out 1 IP address to one device on the hub. With a router, the router uses the 1 IP address and shares access to the internet via that 1 IP address.
Yes, you'll need a router instead of a hub.

Modem <--> Dynex <--> your computer should work.

Connect:

Modem <--> Dynex <--> Linksys router <--> your computer.

Turn off all the above devices.
Turn the modem on, and wait for its lights to "settle" down to a repeatable pattern.
Turn the Dynex on, and wait for its lights to "settle" down to a repeatable pattern.
Turn the Linksys on, and wait for its lights to "settle" down to a repeatable pattern.
Turn your computer on, and wait for its lights to "settle" down to a repeatable pattern.

On your computer, click Start
Click Run
Type CMD and press ENTER
Type IPCONFIG and press ENTER
The Linksys router should have given you an IP-address for your computer, and the IP-address for the "gateway" (namely the Linksys router).
Start your web-browser.
Type http://192.168.0.1 (or http://192.168.1.1) to connect to the web-interface "inside" the router.
Access the 'WAN' settings-page on the router, to see what IP-address the Dynex router has given to the Linksys router, and what "gateway" IP-address that the Dynex router has offered to the Linksys router.

It might be best to change the range of "dynamic" IP-addresses that one of the routers hands out, e.g., '192.168.123.100' to '192.168.123.200' for the Dynex router, so that both routers don't try to hand-out IP-addresses in the *SAME* range.

Belkin wireless G router incompatible with netgear modem


connect your computer to netgear modem alone and check for the ip address in the computer
(make sure that you have selected "assign ip automatically" in computer)...
to open command prompt type "cmd" and hit enter in run box...
then you can check ip address by typing "ipconfig" in command prompt...
make a note of IP adress or ipV4 address found under the heading "ethernet adapter local area connection"
it might be 192.168.X.X
now connect only the belkinrouter and check for the ip address using the same steps above...
it might be 192.168.2.X
make a note of that...
now compare both the ip addresses if they both have the same value in first three places...that is
192.168.2.... or something like 192.168.1.... or 192.168.0.... then you are facing with double NAT issue...
all that you need to do for that is to change the ip address of belkin router...
if it is 192.168.2.1 change into something like 192.168.15.1...the issue will get resolved....if not you can reset the belkin
router by pressing and holding the reset button for 30 seconds using a toothpick when the power is turned on...

Connect MSI RG54G2 to speadstream 4200


so that means if you connect the computer to the modem, it works but not with the router.
it seems that the router and the modem are not communicating with each other.
When you connect the computer to the modem , check the IP address through the modem. If ti is private IP address then you will need to change the settigns on the router.

D-Link DI-524 is not communicating with modem


Checklist:
* Is DHCP configured correctly?
* Connect your server and laptop to a switch (not directly with the cable)
* Can they ping each other?
* Check that the firewall is configured (or switched off if you have another FW in place)
* Default gateway should be your router, not the computers (until you have configured RRAS for example)

Dynex dx-ehb4 will not change ip addresses


I am not familiar with that router so I will provide general knowledge and you can apply it to fix your problem.
It sounds like your cable modem is willing to supply a single IP address. This can and should be connected to the WAN port of your router. The problem is that the router is not assigning IP addresses to the equipment that is connected to its LAN ports. Instead, it allows that single cable modem IP to be assigned to connection #1 and everybody else gets nothing. Get the computer working through it, connect to the router as per the owners manual and turn on NAT or DHCP, whichever it offers. Reboot the computer and connect xbox and you should be good. This was probably not an issue with DSL because your DSL modem would supply up to about 10 IP addresses and they also passed through the router.

My Dynex 4 port router will not communicate with my DSL modem


Have your router clone the MAC Address of your computer. The MAC address is a hardware address on your network card and DSL providers seem to like to bind it to account. What is probably happening is when the router connects to your ISP and asks for an IP address, it looks up your account info and and decides - nope, wrong device. Cloning the MAC address will make them happy. If you are not able to clone the address, call your provider's tech support and ask them to clear the MAC address from your account. Make sure you have the router plugged into the modem and not the computer or you are back to where you started.
