If you have the hardware, it will try to install the drivers when you power up. I'm assuming that failed. You would get an error message that it cannot find the drivers for your hardware. If this is not happening, then it sounds like the hardware has failed.

If you deleted the software drivers, which can be done, then you need to download them on another machine to a USB or CD and install them on your broken system.

Finally, you can now buy fairly cheap USB sticks that will give you wireless access to the internet.

How to reset Paradyne (1740A1400) Router ?


Hi Samsungvt!

You will have to access the Web Interface of the Paradyne Router to reset it to Factory Defaults.

First, connect your PC to the Paradyne Router. Check your IP address is in the range 192.168.1.xx (xx = any number from 1-254). Open your web browser, type 192.168.1.1 then press enter. Enter the default username and password (shown below) to access the router's web interface. On the left pane, click Erase and Reboot; this will reset the router to factory default.

Default IP address is 192.168.1.1
Default Username and Password: root

Let me know if there's anything else...

Acer aspire 7520 cant connect to LAN ( local only)


Hardwired to modem or router?
Router = check connection to router
(had a router die on me last fall - not AC supply)
IP should be 192.168.1.xx or 192.168.2.xx
(is standard)
Reset Router = reset hole on back - hold for 10 sec
Modem= same directions as router
(most modems work like single port routers)
(do reset of cable modem, I've had that prob too)
Using PPOE connection = check log on info
Took most of my home network apart to find it was the modem causing the problem - should've started there.

Hi, I have a problem. I wanted to filter the


The address you wrote is not a MAC address, it's an IP address. The MAC address is the physical network card address.
A MAC address has a form xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx, or as Microsoft likes it, xx-xx-xx-xx-xx-xx, where xx is a pair of hexadecimal digits (from 0 to F).
You can find out your cards' MAC addresses either by inspecting the card hardware, where often it's written on a label, or using "ipconfig /all" command (from the command prompt) - it will show you the physical addresses of all the installed network adapters.
If you have locked yourself out completely from your router and cannot access it's configuration page, you will have to reset it to factory default settings (see manual on how to do that) and re-configure it from scratch.

Windows XP CAN connect directly to cable modem and access internet, but CANNOT access internet when this same computer is connected to a Belkin N Router that is connected to this same modem. I have done...


Hi twilbanks,

from what you are saying, the problem lies very likely in the router configuration.
Since you have a cable (not DSL-) modem, the router should get it's IP address straight from the modem. There is a know issue with the Toshiba PCX 1100 cable modem. If this is your modem, see the information here.
I would suggest to reset the router to factory default, since I don't know what you have configured already. You will loose all your configurations (wireless, security, portforwarding etc.), but it's always better to start from a clean plate.

  1. Turn off your computer.
  2. Unplug all Ethernet cables (Modem -> Router, Router -> Computer)
  3. Power on the router. Reset it by holding the reset button in the back of the router for about 20 seconds.
  4. Connect the modem to the router with an Ethernet cable. (Router WAN port)
  5. Connect the router and the computer with an Ethernet cable. (Router LAN port)
  6. Power on the computer.
  7. Open a command prompt, then type "cmd", click "OK" and in the following window type "ipconfig /all" and hit ENTER. If your computer is set to obtain it's IP address and DNS automatically, your output should look similar to this:
Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
Description . . . . . . . . . . . : [Name of your Ethernet adapter]
Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : XX-XX-XX-XX-XX
Dhcp Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : Yes
Autoconfiguration Enabled . . . . : Yes
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.2.XX
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.2.1
DHCP Server . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.2.1
DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.2.1

If it looks different (IP address is 0.0.0.0 or 169.X.X.X), let me know. In that case we have to configure the computer correctly. Go back to the command prompt window and type "ping 192.168.2.1" and let me know if this command finished successfully.

Also - sometimes your Internet Service Provider has special requests in setting up your router, especially comcast or Cox. When you attempt to open a web page you may recieve the following message:
  • The page cannot be displayed
  • The page you are looking for is currently unavailable
  • The website may be experiencing technical difficulties, or you may need to adjust your browser settings
This is how to resolve this problem:
First make sure that you have a valid connection to the router and that you have a valid IP address.
(note: For a wired connection you should have a link light on the numbered port of the router to which your computer is connected. You should have an IP address in the range 192.168.2.x. To check your IP address, click on Start, Run and type "cmd". Click OK. Now type in "ipconfig" and hit enter. Your IP address will be listed.)
  1. Unplug the power cable from the modem for 3 to 5 minutes
  2. Open a Web Browser
  3. In the address bar type http://192.168.2.1
  4. Click on Connection Type in the left hand column under Internet WAN heading
  5. Enter your password if any and click Submit (Default = Leave blank)
  6. Follow the on screen instructions.
  7. Once complete, click on the Home link at the upper right of the screen.
  8. It should now show Connected as the Internet Status at the top right hand corner of the web page.
If this did not solve your problem or you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Once disconnected, never to connect...again...


First of all, PUT THE DISK IN THE DRAWER!

Now, plug an ETHERNET cable from one of the 4 ports on the router to you laptop's ETHERNET port and boot up the laptop.
If you have not done anything funny to the laptop, it should get a 192.168.1.x address with the gateway of 192.168.1.1 If it doesn't, you need to either set the network card to "obtain DHCP automatically" or you have no connectivity (evidenced by a 169.xx.xx.xx IP address).

Open up Internet Explorer and type in 192.168.1.1 on the address bar. You will get a screen asking for a USERNAME (admin) and PASSWORD (password), provided that you have not changed them or you wrote them down.

If you don't get any of this, start with the basics. Did you reset the router? Do you have cable company service? How did the laptop work before?

The ugly things that can happen is that you were supposed to clone the MAC address of the main computer that the cable company is looking for onto your router. A simple call to the cable company to "reset" the connection would fix that. If you reset the router, you need to login and follow the username and password, if required, instructions. If you lost your router password, likewise, you need to reset the router.

If none of this works, please post back and we'll try for more fixes.
Here's a copy of the quick setup for v4 of the router.

Trying to remove a ip route on the 5871.


normally on router commands, in order to delete something you do not write del, but instead write out the command you would type to add the route with the word no in front of the line.

so if the command to add was eth ip addroute xx.xx.xx.xx xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx xxx.xx.xx.xx 1

the command to take it off would be, no eth ip delroute xx.xx.xx.xx xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx xxx.xx.xx.xx 1

Cannot reset 2wire 1000hw IP


The fact that you receive an IP starting with 209.154.. could also coming from the fact that the DHCP server inside your 2wire has a problem or that your 2wire changed some setting. 
I would like you to open internet explorer and put the following address:
http://gateway.2wire.net/management
If the above address doesn't work, press Start, Run, type cmd and press enter.
At the prompt type    ipconfig /all  and confirm that the Default Gateway has an IP address similar to 172.16.0.1 or something else; if there is no value means that there is no communication with your router and we have to verify the hardware.

If there is an IP address on your Default Gateway, try to ping it by typing  ping xx.xx.xx.xx   change the xx with your Default Gateway IP address.
If you are not getting any reply means that the router doesn't communicate again, if you see some reply means that you can probably access to your router by opening internet explorer and entering the following http://xx.xx.xx.xx  where xx is your Default Gateway address again.

Please let me know up to where you can get some result and then we will continue from there.
