Question about Hawking AR740 ADSL Router with Modem

1 Answer

Hawking AR740 This AR740 is replacing a router/modem that went bad. I got it used with no documentation. The exclamation point is gone and I can telnet the router but I cannot enter a password and I cannot connect to the internet. I am using Windows XP. The ethernet light is on. I changed cables but didn't help. I forced the lan card as you instructed but didn't help.

Is that the router's login screen that you're talking about? Did you set a password at the AR740 before? Try possible passwords that you'd commonly using.

Try this link & hopefully this will help you..

Hello, What do I have to do so that not everyonecan use the WLAN, but has to login first.

You have to setup password protection for the router.

To do this, open up your internet browser and type into the navigation bar and hit enter.

If presented with a user authentication (login) screen, try the following:
Default Username - Hawking Wireless Router: admin (lowercase)
Default Password - Hawking Wireless Router : none (none, leave blank)

To add password protection you will have to activate WEP (a standard encryption protocol used in most routers to protect from unauthorised access).

To access the WEP information, run the Setup Wizard and then go to the Wireless region. Hint: While troubleshooting, try a 64-bit (instead of using a 128 bit WEP key or WPA) WEP key first. To avoid WEP Key mismatch (typing errors, etc.), use a simple/short (i.e. a 10 digit Hex Key such as 0123456789, 5555555555, 6666666666, etc.) WEP Key.

Write down your WEP Key so that you don't forget it.

I put the settings to factory on accident and now i can connect my xbox 360 on wireless connection?

1. Turn the modem off, and then turn it back on. Then turn the router power off, and then turn it back on. This is also known as power cycling the modem and the router.
Power cycle the modem first, and then power cycle the router. To power cycle these devices, you should follow your manufacturer’s specific instructions. Here are some general steps: a. Remove the power supply from your device.
b. Leave the device unplugged for 15 to 30 seconds.
c. Reattach the power supply to the modem by following the device manufacturer’s instructions.
d. Wait several minutes for the device to start and to establish a connection with your broadband provider.
e. Verify that the modem shows the appropriate power and Internet connection indicator lights by following the manufacturer’s instructions.

2. If power cycling your modem and router does not resolve the problem, try connecting the Xbox 360 console to Xbox LIVE by using the modem only. This eliminates any configuration problems on the router. If this setup works without the router, there is probably a configuration issue with the router. See the manufacturer’s documentation that is included with the router or contact the technical support group for the router.
3. Verify that your router's Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) service has been enabled. DHCP enables the router to assign IP addresses to the computers and consoles on your network when you go online. If you need help with this, see the manufacturer’s documentation that is included with the router or contact the technical support group for the router.
4. If you manually entered an IP address, gateway, subnet mask and/or DNS servers in the Network Settings area of the Xbox Dashboard , verify that it they are correct. At this point, you can also set your IP settings to Automatic. To do this, follow these steps:a. Move to the System area.
b. Select Network Settings.
c. Select Automatic.

5. If your ISP requires Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE) settings, try connecting to only the modem after you enter these settings in the Network Settings area of the Xbox Dashboard. Network Settings area of the Xbox Dashboard.
Note Some ISPs may require Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet ( (PPPoE) settings, This means that you may need settings such as a username and password in order to gain access to your ISP’s network. If you are unsure whether you have to enter these settings, please contact your ISP support group. At this point, if you can connect directly to the modem, see your router documentation to configure the PPPoE settings correctly on the router.
6. If you are receiving an IP conflict error in the More Info section of the Xbox Dashboard, turn off all devices on the network. Try to connect to Xbox LIVE with only the modem and Xbox 360 console connected.
If this works, there may be a configuration issue on the router’s Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server. DHCP enables the router to assign temporary IP addresses to the computers on your network when you go online. If you need help with understanding DHCP or the configuration, see the manufacturer’s documentation that is included with the router

I have a 2wire HG-B modem/router and I want to extend my wireless network by using a Hawking HWRN1A router. How do I configure my 2wire with my Hawking router, so it can work?

this hint is only possible if your hawking can be used a an access poit. if yes then try try the following:

connect you adsl line into your modem/router,

connect the lan cable of your modem into a switch

connect both your PC and Hawking into the switch

have your modem/router provide DHCP and DNS

configure your PC to gte its ip address and DNS dynamically

configure your hawking access point to also get its dns and dhcp dynamically (do this by getting into the hawking http page configuration, or telnet if you are good with commands)

now set a wireless lan with WPA or higher through your hawking.

there you have it.
doubts??? i have more solutions

Has my router gone bad?

If no power lights come on... it looks bad, but try another power adapter on the router before tossing it... could be that.

Hawking wireless router (HWRN1A300N) will not connect ot internet

First of all - your ISP has nothing to to with DHCP. DHCP is handled internally by your router (or DHCP server).
If you did not configure your router otherwise, it should hand out an IP address automatically.
If you ipconfig shows that you have an IP address, then I assume that this address is manually configured.
You should set everything to automatic until you know it works.
Go to your start menu -> Control panel -> Network connections.
Right-click on "Network Connections" and choose "open".
Look for your "Local Area Connection", if you are wired into the router, or something like "Wireless Network Connection" if you're using wireless.
Right-click "Local Area Connection" and choose "Properties".
Double-click "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and see that both "Obtain an IP address automatically" AND "Obtain DNS server address automatically" are selected.
Click "OK" twice and make sure that all property windows are closed.
Go to the command prompt and re-do "ipconfig /all" (No quotation marks of course).
Check the line that says DHCP server, it should be the same IP as your Default Gateway (your router).

If this does not work for you, copy the result form that command here and I have another look.

If it works, please come back and leave a comment. This might help others with the same problem.

Hawking AR740

I see. I'm not really familiar on how to configure it. As far as what I've checked at its datasheet, it didn't mention that you can use IE to configure it. Have you been to its web ui before? What did you use to access it?

If there's a reset button then I would advise you to reset it.

You can also download the data sheet before doing the reset:

and according to the data sheet, your device came with a setup cd. Try to re-run the cd if you still have it.

The router is not communicating with my pc

Hi there!

The limited or no connectivity problem is commonly caused by some of these factors:
1. router not giving out an IP address (no DHCP)
2. Incorrect network key or passphrase if you enabled wireless security

I want to help you out and I need to ask you these:

1. How many computers do you have?
2. Do you have a wired or wireless computer?
3. Is it laptop or desktop?

Cannot receive IP from cable modem

I had this problem with another type of router. If the software is fine and the modem shows no problems, its probably your ethernet port on the router. Alot of routers ports go bad after a certain amount of use. It could have been a defect from start and just started to show problems. Logically at this point its hardware. You troubleshot the rest. Last thing to point at is the WAN port on the router going bad.
