1. Step 1
Open your web browser, type " http://192.168.1.1/ " into the address bar and hit "Enter."
2. Step 2
Use "Admin" as the username in the pop-up box and leave the password blank.
3. Step 3
Connect to the Internet and click on "Internet Setup."
4. Step 4
Select your connection type from the drop-down menu. Choose "DHCP" for cable modems or "PPPoE" for most DSL modems. If you are unsure of these options, check with your ISP.
5. Step 5
Set a service set identifier (SSID) to identify the router and change the password.
6. Step 6
Encrypt your wireless connection using a Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key. Under the "Wireless Security" option, enter a passphrase and click "Generate." This will generate a password which will need to be used by any client connecting to your router.

Richard have you tried setting up static ip addresses on the MACs
If you have other p.c's on network with auto ip assignment then alter the DHCP server lease to 192.168.1.10 to 192.168.1.240
then make ip address static 192.168.1.241 subnet mask 255.255.255.0 default gateway 192.168.1.1 and on the other mac
make ip address static 192.168.1.242 subnet mask 255.255.255.0 default gateway 192.168.1.1

The modem has likely assigned it's IP address to the MAC address of the PC.
We need it to assign an IP address to the WAN port MAC address of the router!
When you hook up the router, the modem is no longer sending data to the correct MAC address.
Unplug the power to both the modem and the router.
Power up the router FIRST, and wait for it to complete it's initialization.
Once the lights have settled down on the router, power up the modem.
Wait for it to fully initialize.
NOW turn on your PC or laptop, and everything should be working just fine.
If not, post a reply or add a comment to this post, and I will try to further assist you.

You mentioned in your question that you had a router. If it is actually a modem, then yes, you need a router.
The reason that the Ethernet hub is not working is that your modem will only give out 1 IP address to one device on the hub. With a router, the router uses the 1 IP address and shares access to the internet via that 1 IP address.
Yes, you'll need a router instead of a hub.

Modem <--> Dynex <--> your computer should work.

Connect:

Modem <--> Dynex <--> Linksys router <--> your computer.

Turn off all the above devices.
Turn the modem on, and wait for its lights to "settle" down to a repeatable pattern.
Turn the Dynex on, and wait for its lights to "settle" down to a repeatable pattern.
Turn the Linksys on, and wait for its lights to "settle" down to a repeatable pattern.
Turn your computer on, and wait for its lights to "settle" down to a repeatable pattern.

On your computer, click Start
Click Run
Type CMD and press ENTER
Type IPCONFIG and press ENTER
The Linksys router should have given you an IP-address for your computer, and the IP-address for the "gateway" (namely the Linksys router).
Start your web-browser.
Type http://192.168.0.1 (or http://192.168.1.1) to connect to the web-interface "inside" the router.
Access the 'WAN' settings-page on the router, to see what IP-address the Dynex router has given to the Linksys router, and what "gateway" IP-address that the Dynex router has offered to the Linksys router.

It might be best to change the range of "dynamic" IP-addresses that one of the routers hands out, e.g., '192.168.123.100' to '192.168.123.200' for the Dynex router, so that both routers don't try to hand-out IP-addresses in the *SAME* range.

I can not get on the net via my router. I can get out on my laptop directly connected to DSL modem. what am i doing wrong?


That means your router is not yet configured for internet access. If you are on DSL, your modem's IP and router's IP might be conflicting with each other. You need to change the router's IP address. If not, you can simply configure PPPoE settings on the router's admin page. If you can open the router's setup page, look for Internet Connection Type, choose PPPoE and provide the information that it asks you like username and password given by your DSL provider.

Try to assign an IP address to the second computer like 192.168.0.101 Subnet 255.255.255.0 and Default gateway 192.168.0.1

Note: This one is an example of IP address, the IP address that you need to assign is in range to the router that you have or with in range to the modem.

Dynex dx-ehb4 will not change ip addresses


I am not familiar with that router so I will provide general knowledge and you can apply it to fix your problem.
It sounds like your cable modem is willing to supply a single IP address. This can and should be connected to the WAN port of your router. The problem is that the router is not assigning IP addresses to the equipment that is connected to its LAN ports. Instead, it allows that single cable modem IP to be assigned to connection #1 and everybody else gets nothing. Get the computer working through it, connect to the router as per the owners manual and turn on NAT or DHCP, whichever it offers. Reboot the computer and connect xbox and you should be good. This was probably not an issue with DSL because your DSL modem would supply up to about 10 IP addresses and they also passed through the router.

Dynext router


It will be one of two things or both - either your computer is not setup for DHCP or your router is using the same IP address as your ISP or both.

To check ISP IP address connect your computer to your modem then: from start => run => CMD (hit enter after this)
a command window opens, type "ipconfig /all" without the quotes.
The line with "IP address" gives you your ISP IP addr.
Compare this with what you get from your router manual if they are the same then do the following:

To configure your computer to use a DHCP IP address, go to the Control panel => network connections => Properties (right click on your default connection) => double click Internet protocol (From general tab) => (a new window pops up) from the general tab ensure that "obtain an IP address automatically" is selected.

To change the IP address of your router check your manual and do the following:
IP Addr => 10.10.1.1
Sub net mask => 255.255.0.0
Default gateway => IP address from your ISP
Make sure to the router is set to act as a DHCP server.

You should be up and running.
