There are a few things you can do to help reliability
You should first make sure that the modem and router are individually
set up correctly.
I do have a guide for that.
Once that is done you should consider giving out proper IP addresses
Big business does this for security and reliability and it is no different for home users except maybe easier
Read the guide for router and modem first and if any of it may apply to you then try and do it.
The second part deals with IP addresses and this may well help you
I have a selection of computers laptops servers at home on a small network
It is quite some time since I last had to do any sort of system wide shutdown
Try the following procedure and write down anything you change so that if you need to go back you know what was changed.
Connect ONLY the MODEM to a pc and nothing else
Go to the start menu and select RUN
In the box type "cmd"
Now in the black screen that has come up type "ipconfig /all"
Take note of the numbers that are in 4 groups e.g.
Also take note of the name in front of those numbers !
Take note of the DEFAULT GATEWAY
Now do the same thing with your ROUTER
If that too has the same IP as your modem in "default gateway" then you need to fix that issue as that is probably a part of your problems.
The fix for router modem conflict is to set the router to use a different IP range.

    To do this only have the router connected (by wire) and open an internet explorer page (it will fail but that's ok)

    In the address bar type the number you got for default gateway above for the router e.g. and press ENTER

    When it asks for the user name, give it the one you gave it when you set the router up or the default one from your manual

    Also give it the password you gave it when you set it up or once again the default one from the manual.

    You now need to look for a box that has the number you just used to get into the router.

    It may just say IP address or Starting IP or something similar

    That is the number you should change. I usually change the third block e.g. as opposed to

    You should also have some DNS numbers from the checks further up with the MODEM

    You should find the DNS boxes and place those numbers in there. This will allow your computer quicker access to finding things on the internet

    Now look for the save settings button and do so.

    Reconnect the modem and router. The cable from the modem should go to the YELLOW socket on the router.

    Power up the modem and WAIT until all the correct lights are on.

    Then do the same with the router.

    Now power up a pc and check that you can surf without problems

    If not then the problem may lay elsewhere. Go back and re-check.

    Now to issuing IP addresses and why.

    The computer has to knock-on the routers door and ask for directions home as its address changes everytime it leaves home (switched off)

    You are going to give it a permanent key to its own door. Write down all that you do once again.

    The same applies to both wireless and wired connections.

    You may get an occasional error regarding the IP address already being assigned tell it to ignore and go ahead.

    Call up your control panel and select Network Connections

    If you have more than one don’t worry

    Right click the first one and select properties

    Scroll down to Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) highlight it then click properties

    There are boxes here where you are going to type numbers.

    Click the "Use the following IP address"

    If you changed your router to lets say Then I would use as the first number

    The second box is

    The third box would be (same as your router address)

    The two DNS numbers at the bottom can be got from the numbers you wrote down early on when you just had the modem connected


    Now click OK

    If you have more than one connection available then go to the next one and do the same EXCEPT the first IP

    I would use 192,168,2.11. The rest would be the same as before.

    Now move on to the next computer and do the same again but this time in the first box I would jump by ten so the IP would be

    Again if it has more than one connection then do the same as above and advance the number by one in the top box

    Next machine same deal advance by ten. Once you have all your computers done then shut EVERYTHING down

    Power up the modem and WAIT until all the correct lights are on.

    Then do the same with the router.

    Now power up a pc and check that you can surf without problems

    If your problems are mainly wireless related the next part might be of use.

    It is more than possible that the location of your router or co channel interference is causing disruption.

    If its channel interference try setting your router to auto for channel selection.

    If you are not getting any more than a 10mb connection to the router consider moving the router

    It may be a problem with the windows wireless config

    To turn of wireless zero config open control panel, click administrative tools, now services, then scroll down to wireless zero config.

    Double click on it then click stop. Then set the service to manual. Make sure you click the APPLY button before hitting OK. You can now close the rest of the windows.

    I would suggest at this point you also do a shut down and restart.

    What you have just done is tell windows to stop messing about looking at other peoples wifi to see if it fancies something better (sound familiar ?)

    You told it that it only has eyes for you ;-)

    If you have any problems use the information you wrote down to back step to a working point and then double check from there

    I know this looks like a lot to do but for most of us with more than a couple of computers at home it is usually worthwhile

After connecting my Dynex DX-E402 wifi router to my desktop computer and running the Quick Setup on the router website I still cannot connect to the internet nor will my Netflix-ready DVD player connect to...

Typically wireless routers have one port labeled WAN and four additional standard network ports. The WAN port should be connected to your broadband device, typically a cable modem or DSL modem. You can configure your router with a direct connection to any of the standard ports connected to your computer. Your router must be configured to DHCP automatically with its connection to the modem through the WAN port. So to repeat, outside world to MODEM, then WAN port on router, the wired or wireless connection to your computer.

How to connect a dynex (dx-e402)router to linksys (befsr41) router

Configure the dynex on another computer that is not connected to the linksys router.
Assuming that your linksys is currently setup as
Turn off DHCP on the dynex and setup the IP to subnet mask gateway
use a cross over cable and plug each ends to the LAN port on port routers.
you should now be able to ping (dynex router) from your other computers on the linksys router network.
any computer that is connected to the dynex should be able to get a dhcp address from the linksys router.

When i connect my modem directly to my computer i get internet access. when i connect to my dynex router, i get no access on my computer or xbox

You can go here and download the quick setup guide and manual for your router which will walk you through the setup.

The most common reason it won't connect is that you must have the router's IP number (the one listed as default IP in the manual) set as the GATEWAY address on your computer network settings and your xbox settings, otherwise they can not talk to 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.

Can  Dynex 4 Port Router DX-E402 be used to connect internet on a notebook without using cable to notebook?? i.e. Can it be used like a wireless g 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:
