Re: no default gateway !

Try resetting your router to it's factory defaults, check if you have a straight ethernet cable from your computer to the router, configure your network settings on the computer to automaticly aquire a ip address. After you've checked these points and you still have a limited connection post your router make and model.

Resetting the router is most of the time done by pressing a small switch hidden behind a little hole on the back of the router with a paperclip for a few seconds.

Re: no default gateway !

This usually means that your network is connected but your computer can't obtain an IP address or default gateway from the ISP (Internet Service Provider) or router. Without an IP address, your computer cannot communicate on the network.

I dont know how to get wireless internet

Check the ADSL or cable modem status light. If it is solid green, it indicates that your ADSL/cable modem has a good connection. If the light is off, check modem's physical connection.

Verify that the Internet light on your wireless router is solid or blinking green. It indicates a good connection and correct wiring.

When done, log in to the web interface of your router device and check if it can obtain the IP address from your ISP or not.

If you see, the router is not obtaining the IP address. It can happen due to various reasons. Contact your ISP and ask for the details including username, password for PPPoE etc. and try to connect to the Internet again afterwards.

You may also need to configure the default gateway settings also. To configure your router device as the default gateway, reboot your PC. When done, open Command Prompt, type 'ipconfig/all' and hit Enter. Check Default Gateway

If you are still unable to browse the Internet, ping your router's connection to the PC.

The Request timed out error can occur due to two things: (1). incorrect physical connection between your router device and the PC or (2) incorrect wireless network setup & configuration. Recheck and correct the Ethernet connection between your PC and the router device.

When done, check back if you can browse the Internet or not.

I have installed my router and put in all my passwords. when i try to connect to the internet it keeps on telling me that i have limited connectivity and will not allow me on line.

i am techbuddies from fixya and i want to give a try to solve your problem .
just for your information limited or no connectivity problem comes up when the computer doesnot get the correct ip address .

step 1- please connect the router via cable to your computer .

step 2 -open up the router page by specifying the default gateway address of your router .
if you donot know then open up command prompt in your compter and type ipconfig .note down the default-gateway address and type the same defaultgateway address in Internet explorer by http://default-gateway and then enter.

step 3 - once you open up the router page under configuration setting you need to specify the Ip address that is given by your ISP .

once you specify that try to connect to the internet and check wether it is working or not.

step 4 - open up network connection and right click on the LAN that is running on the computer ,click on the properties, once you do that you get a screen named Local area connection properties from the middle box highlight option that says internet conection protocol 4 and then click on to properties ,once you do that you get another screen ,in that paticular screen just check radio botton is on the option that says obtain and ip address automatically .

if you futher face the same problem you can get back to me on fixya and i would love to solve your issue

I want to reconfigure this so xbox will work on second computer the second computer works but it will not automatically pick up xbox, I have disabled wireless and hit the reset button when I type in...


To configure the router you must connect to the router using a cable.

Ensure that IP is , and not for example.

If you are using a computer to configure the router, turn off the firewall.

You can find out router IP opening the command prompt (type CMD in run box) and typing ipconfig/all in the Dos command prompt.
Router IP will be indicated as default gateway.

Router problem. Netcomm NP740n

you can always go into the router by entering the default gateway ip.

Worst case scenario - do a hard reset on the router to fix it.

Msg. conntected with limited access

Try this.

Unplug the Router.
Unplug the modem.
Wait about 15-20 secs.
Reconnect the modem.
wait about a minute or until all the lights are solid on the display.
Reconnect the Router.
Wait about another minute until everything is given time to start up.
Try connecting again.

If it still does that, it may be a problem with your computer that your trying to access with wirelessly.

My mother had that problem on one of her laptops, it turned out that her particular installation didn't support WPA or WEP incryption. I did a full reinstall and now it works.

If you want to avoid a full reinstall you can try uninstalling the wireless network card, then reinstalling it.(Make sure you go to your manufacturers web site first to download the proper driver for your model)

I hope this helps,

Limited or no network connection

looks like the dhcp is your problem.

the error is telling you that its an internal network providing limited access.

go to run cmd then in the dos prompt type in ipconfig /all

see your network card's ip address. if its 169.x.x.x then thats the problem..u are not getting the ip address from your computer.

go to your network connections right click the network card then go properties in the tcp/ip area assign yourself a manual ip address of 192.168.1.xx
the xx is a number that u like 2 digits only but it can't be 1

your default gateway is your router so give it

this should solve ur problem

good luck

Setup Wizard won't appear

Kate I first suggest reviewing this link and determining the model of the router.

Second did you buy the router new or used because a used router may not be at the default address you expect. Assuming you can access the router with your computer and wireless card -- open a command window (Start > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt) and type ipconfig and press enter. If you cannot connect using the wireless use a wired connection to the router ports to get the gateway address as indicated above using ipconfig. There may be multiple connections however we are looking for one with an IP Address and a Default Gateway probably like 192.168.?.? where the first question mark is the same and the last are different. Use the default gateway address to access your router instead of the default If the password has been changed meaning the router logon fails for you with the default password, the manufacturers documentation may describe a reset process to return the router to factory default including the password to allow you access (note the gateway address will also revert to the manufacturers default requiring a reboot or ipconfig /reset and ipconfig /renew to reconnect the computer to the router after the change.
