Router blocks people at random. (4 Port Ethernet Broadband Router)
After setting the router up, eventually my computer or someone elses' will get blocked by it. My guess is that one of the filters (ip, mac address, etc) are being applied and while we have lan access, it won't let us connect to the internet. The only way to get it to work again (which could be for hours or minutes) is to do a hard reset.
Also, when this all happens, we are not able to log into the router's settings page - we leave the username/pass default and it doesnt accept it. This isn't the first nexxtech router we've used, so I don't think it is the problem.
The only exception to this seems to be my roommate's computer. His computer rarely, if ever, has these problems.

If there is only 1 ethernet port on your router it sounds like this is the port for your modem to connect to your router and that your router is only built for wireless. If you want to connect computers via ethernet cable you will need either a new router with a 4 port switch or a new wireless router with a 4 port switch. (you can get more than 4 ports if you have more that 4 computers).
The Dynex manual for this router says the default address of the the router is 192.168.1.1 and both the username and password should be admin. If you are connecting to 192.168.0.1, you might be reaching some other router connected to your network, or the Dynex settings have been changed. You can restore default factory setiings by resetting the router. Use a straightened-out paper clip to press the recessed RESET button on the rear panel. Hold it until the System LED flashes three times, then release the button. The router will reboot and factory default settings will be back.
A router is basically a mini-computer that splits up one internet connections to 4 (or whatever # of ports you have).
Basic Connections to a router: A Router requires a internet connections, so your broadband modem must connect to the WAN port (theres only one) of the router DIRECTLY. Then Ethernet cables go from the router to the computers on the LAN ports. Don't do something weird like connecting your internet to your computer then your computer to the routers WAN port, it'll most likely mess up.
Once you have connected your router like this, it should work.
If your modem only has a usb port, I have no idea how to make that work out. Sorry. Try getting a new modem from your ISP, or check if your modem does have a ethernet port, if it does just connnect that to the routers wan port.
Also computers should not interconnect with each other with use of a router. Thats what the router is for. Everything gets connected and split up at the router, nothing connects to anything else but the router, basically.
To physically install the router
Step 1: Connect the power adapter Connect the power adapter to the router and plug it into an electrical outlet not controlled by a wall switch. Step 2: Connect the router to the computer Disconnect the ethernet cable that is connecting the broadband modem to the network adapter in the computer. Connect the ethernet adapter in the computer to one of the LAN ports on the router. Step 3: Connect the router to the modem Connect the ethernet port on your broadband modem to the WAN port on the router. Step 4: Check link lights and connections Check the front of the router to make sure the Power, WAN and LAN1 lights are on.
