If you know how to get into your router's setup go into wan settings and change the MTU size to 1492 instead of 1500. I had the same problem and that solved it for me. Good luck.

Are you pushing a lot of data through the router for the few hours when it works? I've run into this with some routers where the router will just hang because I'm trying to push too much data through it and it's little CPU gets overwhelmed. Also make sure it's not overheating...that does the same thing.

To answer your question, routers do not have any built-in timer (at none that I have seen).

How do you hook up a Dynex Ethernet Hub


If your hub has 4 or 5 connectors, connect one port to your router. This device will NOT work when connected to your cable modem, as the hub does not manage IP addresses like a router does. Hope this helps ... the remaining ports will feed internet, but not provide Internet addresses to a computer.

Trying to share internet connection


Make sure that the modem is connected to the internet port of the router and the pc should be connected to the numbered ports. Now power cycle the network, turn off the router first then the modem. Wait for 3-5 minutes then turn on the modem and 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.

Cannot use more than 1 computer with my 5 port router


Start with buying a router. The Dx-ESW5 is a 5-port switch, not a router. http://dynexproducts.com/t-faqs_dx_esw5.aspx

You could make it work, but you'd have to assign IP addresses to each of the machines connected to the Internet. For security and a number of other reasons, it's quicker and easier to just grab a router on sale at your local office supply place for $30 bucks or so.

Wired dynex router suddenly started interfering with my internet connection.


Verify your router is connected to a standard grounded outlet. Check that the Internet cable is connected to the WAN port on your router, and check the WAN light on the front of your router is illuminated. Check that the LAN lights are on.
Power cycle your router by unplugging the DSL/Cable Modem from the power, then unplug the router and power off your computers. Then, plug in the DSL/Cable Modem to the wall and wait until all the lights are on and none of them are blinking. Power on the DX-E401 router and wait until all the lights are on. Now, power on one computer and verify the Internet connection.
You can verify your router is working properly by sending an echo request to it and verifying the response you get.
If you are a Windows user go to Start, select the Run option and in the dialog box type in CMD. Once there, type in ping 192.168.0.1 and you should get 0% loss as a response.
If these do not help, the router is likely to have malfunctioned, requiring repair or replacement.

Ftp server


What is the name of the software? Is that an FTP software?
Anyway if you are using DX-E401 Router you can enable DMZ (demilitarized zone) to your PC.

1.access your router configuration page (default ip: 192.168.0.1)
2.go to advanced tab
3.select DMZ
4.select enable then type the ip address of your server pc
5.apply settings

after that have someone try to access the files in your pc.
if the software you installed is ftp software then have them access it by this

ftp://internet_ip

the "internet ip" is the ip address found in the STATUS TAB of your router under the WAN catergory.


If this software you mentioned is using any particular application ports, you will have to open those ports for your server PC.
In that case you will to configure VIRTUAL SERVER. It's the actual term used by dynex. for you to have a general idea how to configure your pc behind your router please go to this link

http://www.dynexproducts.com/skins/skin_1/Topics/Documents/DX-E401_Manual.pdf

Virtual server configuration is in pages 22-23. It has detailed explanation of the terms used.

Hope this helps!

Scenario 2 to 4: Scenario 2) The modem does not have an Ethernet port. The modem is a dial-up modem for traditional dial-up service. To use the Router, you need a cable/DSL modem and high-speed Internet connection.

Scenario 3) You cannot use the DSL service to connect manually to the Internet.
After you have installed the Router, it will automatically connect to your Internet Service Provider (ISP), so you no longer need to connect manually.

Scenario 4) The DSL telephone line does not fit into the Router’s Internet port.
The Router does not replace your modem. You still need your DSL modem in order to use the Router. Connect the telephone line to the DSL modem, insert the setup CD into your computer, and then follow the on-screen instructions
