Assuming that you have followed the below correctly DHCP will be enabled. Step 1: With the unit on, place a paper clip into the hole on the back of the unit labeled Reset. Step 2: Hold paper clip down for 10 seconds and release. Note: Do not repower unit during this procedure. Step 3: The unit will reboot on its own. Once the WLAN light stops blinking, the unit is reset. Resetting the router does not reset the firmware to an earlier version. It will change all settings back to factory defaults. Note: The factory defaults username is admin, and there is no password.
if not change your computers IP to 192.168.0.2 with 255.255.255.0 mask. Then open the browser of your choice and go to 192.168.0.1 and login to the router and under advanced, reset router to factory defaults.

How can I get a second hand Mitel 5215 to accept an IP address?


Your phone needs an IP address in order to communicate. Normally, it asks a "host" for that IP. You need to be connected to the internet for it to connect to the normal host, and your router should be willing to give it that IP address. "DHCP" is how devices ask for and get an IP address.

Tip

CASCADING / CONNECTING TWO ROUTERS (WRT54G)


To properly connect a second router to a main router that acts as the gateway, follow the steps below.

1. Try to isolate your 2nd router first by disconnecting everything from it and connect a computer to port 1. Make sure that the power cord is plugged in.
2. Reset the router.
HARD RESET- Reset the device to factory default.
1] Press and hold the reset button for 30 sec., after that
2] Unplug the power keep holding down the reset button for another 30 sec.
3] Then, plug back the power keep holding down the reset button for 30sec., after that
4] Release the reset button.
3. From the computer open an Internet Explorer browser and type 192.168.1.1 on the address field. Leave user name blank and type admin on password, you should be at the Setup Page by now.
4. Click on Setup Tab and change the LAN IP/Local IP addresses to 192.168.1.2 then hit apply/Save settings. Note that, it won't go back to the Setup Page, close your browser.
5. Access the new IP address of the through Internet Explorer browser. Type on the address bar http://192.168.1.2. Look for DHCP Server under the Setup Tab. Disable the DHCP then click on apply/Save settings.
6. Shut down the computer and power down the router. Now get a cat5 straight-through Ethernet cable and plug one end to one of the four ports at the back of the secondary router and plug the other end to one of the regular ports on the Main router. Then turn both back on. The 2nd router should be ready to provide connectivity now.

Hope this help everyone.

For that you need to enable DHCP on router also enable wireless on router. You need to configure your router with below method. Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. If you are still not able to access router with above ip then you need to RESET it for that press RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router then all settings defaults..Then you can access it with above method. Then set WAN settings as internet service provider settings enable DHCP. .Click on wireless and enabled it. Then click on wireless->wireless security->WEP security there is code password note down it or enter new password then save setting s and restart router. then you can connect wireless with new password. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

Cant obtain an ip address from router or modem and not sure how to check if dhcp is enabled or disabled configuration problems trying to connect to xbox live wit console and pc


Connect a desktop or laptop to the router.
Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD and press ENTER
Type IPCONFIG/ALL and press ENTER.

Does it show "DHCP enabled"?
Does it show an IP-address (probably starting with '192.168.') ???

If so, then DHCP is enabled on your computer,
and your router is handing-out IP-addresses.

No connection between modem-router-pc


Linksys reset
The easiest method of resetting your Linksys router’s password is to reset your router back to the default factory settings. This is done by simply holding down the reset button located on the back of the unit for at least 30 seconds. Once the router has been reset, it must be reconfigured. Using your web browser go to URL address http://192.168.1.1. You will then be prompted to login to your router. A log-in screen asking for the password will automatically appear. At this time enter the default password “admin”, in lower case letters into the password field. The username field may be left blank at this time. (Note: both the default username and default password are set to “admin” on some of the newer Linksys router models).
Router setup
Shutdown your PC. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line. This is if you have a cable service provider. If you have DSL, the router needs to be configured with PPPOe.

Need directions for router


Perform a factory reset of the router. Locate the reset button on the back of the unit. Hold it in with a paper clip for 15-30 seconds then release. Reboot the router and it will be back to factory default. Log into the device, and check the firmware. Look online to make sure that you have the current version, and update it if you do not.

Ip address problem


Try statically assigning an IP address so that you can access the router, and make sure the DHCP service is enabled on it. Failing that, you can try resetting the default settings on the router.

It should have a small hole on the back of the router (near the power plug, I believe) with a button inside. Use a paperclip to hold that button down for 5 to 10 seconds, then reset the power to the router, and it should be back to it's defaults.

Help connecting Cable Internet through D-Link DI-514 Router


what may be happening is the wireless pc as it was; needs the dns and ip address flushing, also the pc you connected the router to as you must have conflicting ip addreses Click start run then type ipconfig /flushdns. You should ensure that the router is set to enable DHCP to assign ip addreses and make sure your'e network cards on all pc's are set to obtain ip address automaticaly in the TCP/IP properties. Restart the pcs and type 192.168.0.1 in your web browser and get into your router setings and check in the DHCP section that all pc's have been given an ip address. If all fails you may need to reset the router

How do I configure DHCP server on my wireless router?


Step 1 Open a web browser and type the IP address of the wireless router in the address bar (default is 192.168.0.1). Press Enter. Step 2 The default username is admin (all lower case) and the password is blank (nothing). Click OK. Step 3 Click on the Home tab and then click on DHCP to the left. Note: If you are connecting to a DHCP server, the DHCP server on the wireless router should be set to Disabled. Step 4 By default, DHCP Server is set to Enabled. To disable it, click the Disabled radio button. To enable it, click the Enabled radio button. Step 5 Enter the Starting IP Address and Ending IP Address. To change the lease time, select a value from the drop-down list next to Lease Time. Note: The value for Starting IP Address must be less than the value for Ending IP Address. Step 6 Click on Apply then click Continue to save the settings.
