if the router is telling you a bad ip address of 162.this figure indicate that the ip address is a class B ip,so you have to make sure that the figure in each octet is correct especially the first two octet.


then confirm this from your service provider for accuracy.this should help

New modem installed and router won't work now


First step is to make sure if the modem is working. Connect your computer directly to modem with ethernet cable and see if you can log on to internet! if yes
next step connect modem to your router's WAN port with an ethernet cable and then connect your computer to one of the LAN ports of router with ethernet cable. Power down all devices and power up modem first wait until all lights are on and then router wait until all lights are on then your computer! 9 out of 10 times this works! try good luck!!

I used to have 5 computers hooked to a DLINK router (DI-707) for a LAN and the router hooked to a modem for internet. I changed IP and got a pk500 modem. I can plug 4 computers to the pk500 and get...


This might actually has nothing to do with the router itself, you may need to call your ISP (Internet Service Provider) and let them know you have a new router. They may have to configure it themselves because some modems are not plug-and-play (which means when you get a new router, the modem doesn't automatically recognize the new router.) So, your best bet right now is to call your ISP and they will walk you through it. I faced a similar issue and finally got through by simply calling my ISP, calling the router's manufacturer may do nothing, at least it didn't for me.
Try this: Unplug all internet cords, unplug all power cords. Wait about 30 seconds to 2 minutes. Connect your router to the modem with one internet line, into to the appropriate ports. Next, plug your modem into the power source, and let it run for approximately 4 minutes (or until all of the lights are on and it is ONLINE.) It varies per modem on when it is 100% online. Next, plug your router into the power source, and wait until it loads 100%. Then try plugging into one of your computers, not all, one, and preferably using Windows Operating systems because they detect internet more easily than Mac.
If all else fails, one more troubleshooting to do, and that is to plug your computer DIRECTLY from the modem to the computer via internet cord, bypassing the router. If you get internet from the modem, then it is supposed to work, the router could be the issue. If you are NOT getting the internet, then the modem is the issue.
Lastly, I really think calling your ISP would solve the issue all together. GOOD LUCK!

I have just moved my business to a new location. I got here and plugged everything in the same way, but my wireless computers are picking up my network but can't connect to the internet.


The problem is not the router or Wifi system, but the configuration for the modem connecting to the Internet at your new location vs. the old location.

I would call the tech support of the Internet Service Provider to solve this problem. Your Cable Modem or DSL modem will have to be reconfigured for the new location.

Good luck on this new installation.

Router no longer working since new modem was installed. Modem works and can access internet when connected directly to pc. comtrend ct-5071t connected to a linksys router


Reboot the router so that it can get a new dhcp lease.

If you can't login to the router to reboot it, just unplug the power for about a minute, then plug it back in.

If that doesn't work you will need to be able to login to the router to fix it. Depending on your internet supplier, you may have to set the router to login to the router.

Good Luck!

Dell truemobile 2300 shows connected to internet, but isn't


When you reset the router, did you first shut the router down, then unplug the modem (wait 30 seconds), reconnect the modem (wait for all lights to go to "normal mode"), reconnect router to power, check for activity light on modem, wait about 30 seconds after all is powered up? If not, try that sequence and let me know if it works.

Can't get Trendnet TEW-432 router to connect to internet with motorola modem


I had this same problem. I was going to go ahead and call ATT and ask them to put my modem into bridge mode, but I messed around a bit more....

I went ahead and turn on PPPoE...tried to run the set up again. Well it worked. Not the internet connection is working through the modem. For some reason, the setup changed PPPoE back to DHCP Client, but it's working now. Give this a shot before calling ATT if you like. Good luck.
