Internet Connection Basics


Modern high-speed internet connections are made using DSL or cable modems. In general, most DSL modems also act as routers, but not too many cable modems act like a router.

Some internet connection basics: Every device connected to the internet has an IP (Internet Protocol) address. The address consists of 4 groups of up to 3 numbers each. They would look like this: 123.111.36.145 (0 is the smallest number and 255 is the largest you will see). When you connect to the internet, you are assigned an IP address by your ISP (Internet Service Provider). When you hook up your computer
to the modem, the signal is passed through the device to your computer and the device's IP address becomes your address. This is not secure, as the "bad guys" could type your IP address into their machine and theoretically see your computer and access all your data.

Connecting with your modem: Modems come with a CD nowadays. Running the setup CD makes connecting quite easy. With a DSL modem, you normally have to provide a username and password to log on. Cable modems generally rely on the cable connection to your house to recognize who you are and when you run the setup CD, you are automatically connected.

The router: The purpose of this device is twofold--one is to take the signal you get from your ISP and send it to a number of computers in your home network. The second purpose is to take the IP address and send it to a different address on each computer. This acts as a "firewall" in that the IP address assigned to your computer is no longer the address of the computer. Those bad guys trying to hack into your system will have a much more difficult time.

Types of routers: There are wired routers capable only of hooking up computers with ethernet cable within a network. There are wireless routers--normally these have 4 wired ports and a set of antennas. These function will in a mixed environment of wired and wireless computers. Most people these days are using wireless routers.

In my next tip, I'll describe how you go about hooking up your new router to an existing internet connection.

No internet connection tips


I listed some of the things you should check if the internet on your desktop or laptop is not working.

Computer connected to the modem

1. Check the cables if its properly connected to the modem
2. check the lights on the modem, if they are all ok.
3. Check if the modem is set on standby mode. MOdem should not be on standby.
4.Power cycle your modem. power off your modem for 3mins, and then turn it on. Wait for the lights to get steady and then check your computer if it has internet access.
5. Call your Internet service provider , it can be a problem with their line.



Computer connecting thru the router

1. If its wired check cables.
Some user plug the computers to the INTERNET or WAN port. Computers should be on the LAN port . Modem should be plug into the WAN or internet port.
2. Check the lights where you connected the computer. See if the port light is lit up
3. Check your computers ip address. HOw?

If your using windows

Click start - run - cmd - enter ipconfig - look for ip address.
If the ip address is 169.xxx , this is an invalid ip.

If your using mac

Click apple icon
Click on system preferences
Go to network and then look for tcp ip address


If you get an invalid ip address the solution is either you need to plug the computer to another ethernet port or your router needs to be reset.

If its wireless and your getting 169.xxx
Theres a possibility that the wireless security on your router and your laptop dont match. Check your wireless security and make sure you enter it correctly.

4. Your router might not be communicating well with the modem. YOu can do the steps above to check if the modem is working properly.

5. if the modem is working. That only means you need to setup your router again to the internet. You can do it using the setup cd that came with your product or you can do it manually by calling your router tech support.

Laptops stopped connecting wireless


how about to reset your router and setup it the proper address by your internet provider..
laptops only connect to the router automatically if you enable it reconnect and detect its network without manually connect internet, this procedure can see in your wireless properties by enabling it.
And also ask your internet provider if theres a problem also with their internet connection.
Good luck!

Connection keeps cutting off


Hi, I have also faced the same problem many times....
Try to restart the router and see for the connection light to turn green.... then connect to internet..


This happens due to heavy load. When thre are many users your router will restart automatically.

If this still continues ask your tech guy to change the line.

Two computers have same IP address...what to do?


Hi, at first you have to get into both PC's network cards settings > properties of network adapters, select Internet protocol TCP/IP and click on properties - make sure the adapter is set to get the IP address and DNS details automatically.Then get into the routers admin website in web browser (I think 192.168.0.1) while connected to router. Find the option DHCP and select it to enable. Save the settings and try to reconnect with both laptops again and it should work.

Loss of internet connection when going through router


Your laptop seems to be hooked to your neighbours unsecured network automatically and it is going online with that. About comcast, when you connect a router to the modem or a computer to the modem, the modem has to be rebooted to give a valid IP to the connected device. If the modem is not rebooted the computer or the router will get 192.168.x.x IP address which is called private IP address.

Laptop keeps disconnecting then connecting every so often.


Has the computer ever stayed on long enough to connect to the internet?

Is there a wired computer working when attached to the router?

If not, if possible please try to connect the laptop wired to the router as a test and tell me if it works.

I am trying to determine if your router works with the internet before considering the wireless connection simplying the initial problem. Once the router works wired is time to try the wireless. Once the wireless works unsecured you may want to change the router and wireless adapter to secure the wireless network. So this can be a three step process.

Zyxel p660hw and g202 problem


I had an almost identical problem and contacted Tech support at Zyxel. They were excellent and the guy talked me through to a solution. The main issue related to 'Bandwith management' which defaults to active on the router configuration. Unset all three (Wan, Lan, Wlan) and see if it sorts out problem. Because of some other issues I did have to reset the router to start with and on the wireless client I unset 'Obtain IP address automatically' and used an IP address with the default gateway set to the router address. If this does not help, I would recommend talking to Zyxel Tech Support, the consultant I spoke to was brilliant.
