Well, actually, the one you have, linksys is the least problematic. The particular model you have also seems to work. I've seen many threads on various forums( while researching an answer for your issue), where Belkin routers were the most troublesome.

Simply ignore the warning and try the game and see if it works or not. If it works, great, if not, then well, nothing much has changed :)
Also, try the ip configuration without the router, with a direct connection, and let me know how it goes..

Connect motorola modemsbSB6121 to Belink N600 wireless router with out losing internet signal


Step one turn on PC directly connected to ModemsbSB6121 without Wi FI router being involved.
Step two go to Command prompt type in ipconfig (press enter)
Step three note IP address of default gateway and ip address issued to P.C.
Step four type in default gateway address into browser and log into Modem.
Step five look for DHCP Server and allocate IP addresses from at least 50 for example 192.168.0.50 starting ip lease ending ip lease 192.168.0.254
Step six connect Wi Router to P.C. via ethernet cable only - remove ModemSB6121
Step Seven shutdown and restart p.c
Step Eight go to Command prompt type in ipconfig (press enter)
Step Nine note IP address of default gateway and ip address issued to P.C.
Step Ten type in default gateway address into browser and log into Wi Fi Router
Step Eleven Change IP address on Router to 2 as example 192.168.0.2. (it has to match in that modem device would have been 192,168.0.1)
(if it was 10.0.0.1 make wi fi 10.0.0.2 make sure subnet mask is the same like 255.255.255.0)
Step twelve Change DHCP Server to off
Step Thirteen may need to set default gateway to MODEM IP address for example 192.168.0.1
Step Fourteen plug modem router into Wi Fi router may need to plug into WAN port on WI FI router .
Step Fifteen shutdown and Restart Computer
Step Sixteen go to Command prompt type in ipconfig (press enter)
Step Seventeen type in PING 192.168.0.1 (if this is modem IP address and default gateway IP addess)
All this above is to avoid IP address conflicts or mismatching
Subnet mask should be 255.255.255.0
either it uses 192.168.0.1 or it uses 10.0.0.1 make sure Wi FI router is set to different address to Modem Router.
I suspect either a clash occurs or your P.C gets a different IP range from ther WI FI DHCP server.
Happy troubleshooting !

I reset my modem and now i cant get my wifi back on


If your modem pulled a new or different ip address and you did not reset your router it could be trying to use the old IP address and there would be a conflict. IP addresses usually have a lease of 24 hours, S if your IP was refreshed at noon and you reset your mdem and for sopme reason it obtained a new ip address the router would not be able to connect until noon the following day when it tried to refresh. Rebooting the router should cause it to sync back up with the modem and pull the correct IP address. You may need to log into your router and manually release and renew the IP address even after rebooting your router, I have seen a few routers that would still not pull the new address unless this was done.
My preferred method is to unplug power from the router, then reboot the modem. Only after the modem is synced back up do I plug power back into the router, so far this has seemed to work the best.

I'm using an SB5101 and trying to use a new wireless router with this modem, but the set up is saying I have a static IP address... where can I find that on my computer whil I'm using my old router? thanks


I have one, after finding out how reliable and well-made they are. However, they can be picky during setup, especially since they have a rare 'config IP' address (the number you type into your internet browser's address bar to change the modem's settings). Click here >> 192.168.100.1
See this link for more info.

What is it?


default is http://192.168.1.1, but you can check by ip gateway (modem adress), on your computer.

check your local network connection:
if your modem is directly connect your computer, by usb or LAN the gateway adress is the same, you can test if go to the webrowser and type the same adress as before.

My NAT setting is strict. ive tried everything i know to change it but cant. i have a silver motorola modem wit a black and blue linksys router but i cant figure out how to change the Nat setting. Im...


Microsoft has a support page to help you with your NAT settings. The prescribed solution is to "open" the following ports on your router:
  • UDP 88
  • UDP 3074
  • TCP 3074





1- Using your Browser, Log on to your router (by normally typing in the192.168.1.1 address check your router's manual to see what the defaultgateway address)

2- If you already know how to log in to your router, then skip thisstep. If you have never logged on to your router then more than likelyyou still have the default initial log in credentials (username: admin- Password:1234 ..... Again check your router's manual to be sure). Theminute you log in you need to change that password immediately, mostnetwork-savvy folks know that 90% of the people out there never resettheir router's initial password and they can log on and make anychanges to suit their needs, including locking you out of your ownrouter.

3- Once you are logged in click on sercruity, scroll tot he bottom and make sure "Filter Internet NAT Redirection" is set to "disabled" ,

4. now click on advanced routing
make sure
Nat is enabled.

5. now click on applications and gaming.

you should be able to find two advance settings (One if for NAT - and the other is for Upnp)

4- Let's start with the NAT setting changes, and we will edit theUpnp settings at the end.



6- You will need to find out what the static/dynamic (preferablyStatic) IP address you xbox360 has. To do so, go to the Dashboard, goto the Console settings page, and click on the network settings to seethe IP address (should be something like 192.168.1.x). You will needthat IP address to enter into your NAT table on your router.

7- Once you got your XBOX's IP address enter it in the NAT PortForwarding table (From - To - IP address:)

8 - In the first line enter 88 under both "From" and To" fields, thenenter the IP address of the xbox in the field where you are to enter anIP address. (this is for UDP port)

9 - Repeat the same step for port TCP (which is 3074)

10- If these changes do not help open your NAT settings, then try theUpnp option. Click on your Upnp Advances settings enter the same information with the ip, and make sure UDP are enabled and checked for. use the port #s for your info as well in the chart. you can name them what ever u want under the application column.
  • UDP 88
  • UDP 3074
thend o the same for

TCP 3074
just make sure the tcp is checked and not udp.


if that doesnt work we can do a full reset on your router.

Reset for most routers with a reset button on the rear panel
Write down configuration information such as IP addresses, securitykeys, opened ports and services, etc., that you modified. (The defaultusername is admin and the password is either password or 1234. Try these before resetting the router.)
  1. Press the reset button on the back until the test light blinks.This takes about 10 seconds. (To avoid accidental resets, the smallbutton is recessed. Use a pen or paperclip to access it.)
  2. Release the button.
  3. Wait for the router to reboot.
  4. Log in with the default password.If the router configuration was not cleared, try these additional steps AFTER the router has finished rebooting.
  5. Unplug the router's power.
  6. Press and hold the reset button. While the button is held down, reconnect router's power.
  7. Continue to hold the reset button for 20 seconds after reconnecting the power.
  8. Wait for the router to reboot.
  9. Log in with the default password.
please rate me, and mark this fixya if it has helped.

IP DETAILS


well this question has 2 answers:
1) if you want to find out what is the ip that in on your PC if you are connected to a one of these (cable modem, DSL modem or router) then this is what you call a "local ip, or private IP" to check it you do this: you click Start/ run/ and you type CMD and press ENTER on the keyboard. then in the black window you type "ipconfig" (without the quotes) and you press ENTER again. here it should say, ip address (most likely it is going to start like 192.168.xxx.xxx , where xxx could be any set of numbers)

2) if you are talking about the IP address that your modem (cable or DSL) is pulling , that means that is your "public IP" and to find it out, (the wasiest way) you can go to a site like "whatismyip.com" and your public ip will be at the top of the page.


Note: in case of vista, to get the black window you click "start/(start search) and type CMD and enter"
the rest is the same.

How do i set a password to protect my wireless internet


Access the Router's page and go to Wireless configuration. You may assigned a WEP key that uses hexadecimal value (A-F, 0-9). So if someone attempts to access your Wireless network, they will prompt to enter a Wep key.

Setting up for broadband


Hi,

First, you might want to check with Plusnet the login information and the type of the authentication they have. Secondly, setup your router, login to your router using a web browser. Type 10.1.1.1 in the address bar and press enter key.Login using the default setting username 'admin' and password 'admin'.

Click on Home tab and then on WAN on the left side of the screen.Select PPPoE/PPPoA option.Under Connection Type select 'PPPoE LLC' in the drop-down menu.Enter username and your password.Please check with your provider if not sure again.
If you have connection with static IP address, you do not have to specify the IP settings on the router: the router will be getting the same IP from your ISP every time it connects.Click on Apply. To save the settings into the router's memory go to Tools > [System] > Save and Reboot.Give the router a minute or two to reboot and reconnect.

Lastly, Restart your computer and you should be able to access the Internet.You do not have to run any login client on any of your computers because your router logs to your ISP automatically.
