Vista PC connecting to DSL-504T modem/router

Hi
I have recentyl installed a etherned 4 port modem/router with two PC's one VISTA and one XP. The XP one was used by my ISP to install the modem/router, and works fine.after turning off each night.
When I turn on the Vista PC in the morning (the previous night I put the PC into hiberntion and turned it off at the power point) the LAN light does not light and the icon on the task bar shows a red X and no internet connection. After unplugging and plugging the ethernet cable on port 2 several times (the XP is on port3)the light eventually comes on and all was well. It appears if I put the PC into hibernation the LAN light will stay on, but if I turn the PC off at the power point it will not come on the next day. The funny thing is that the other PC, an XP on port 3 of the 4 port modem, which was used to install the modem/router by my ISP provider, comes on every time after being put into hibernation, and switched off at the power point each night. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Regards Michael Pope popemd@chariot.net.au

D-link modem>Belkin 4 port router connected to Winxp pc and Vista pc the vista connects to broadband but the Winxp doesn't the network is ok


the DHCP packets arent' being understood by the xp computer.

Often manufacturers skimp on the router firmware, and bodge it up. (often seen in dlink and netgear.)

Have you tried flashing the router to the latest firmware?

If that doesn't improve it, either try cabled, or try forcing a static IP.

I have a new acer that will not recognized the IP address for my internet connection. Internet provider has completed troubleshoot and says it's not their connection.


if you go to ("start/run and type CMD" if XP) or (start / -in "start search here" type CMD , if it is a vista) and you should see a black window, in it, type --> ipconfig
and press enter, that should show you an IP address, if it is 169.xxx.xxx.xxx that means you network card is either bad or not talking to you router of DSL modem , if it is connected to router, bypass the router and connect it directly to modem (cable modem or DSL) and restart the computer, if still does it (meaning 169 still), that means the cord could be bad, (swap it) or that means you network card is BLOCKED from the outside world by a Firewall. diable the firewall, (disable windows firewall first, restart pc, if still, that means you might have an another firewall (some firewalls if they expire, they do a total lock down, meaning, they will not allow you to connect to the outside world, in some cases you might need to uninstall the firewall totally.)

worst case senario , you might need to replace you network card *go to walmart, and get one, they are around the $10 or $12. and replace it. (hoping that you have either XP or vista) if you have an earlier one, do not even bother with it.

No you can only use that modem from a pc, you need to buy a modem/router not just a router, unless you are on cable, but i assume you have a DSL connection

I have everything connected but it will not connect to the internet.


Hi loveyou,

Can you provide some details about your setup? like the name of your ISP? if it's cable or dsl? brand/model or your modem and or router, and operating system of your computer (windows XP, vista, MAC)

you may want to start to check if you have properly connected your devices (cable used, port). If the connections are ok, check the LED lights and settings on your modem, router and computer (if you need to setup PPPoE on your router or computer if on DSL or do MAC registration or cloning for cable service.

Connecting a router


To connect more than one computer to same network, you need to use a router. Two modems will not work on same network.
My suggestion:
Buy a wireless modem router for cable broadband (and eventually a wireless network card for the other computer.
Here is an example: Linksys BEFW11S4 Wireless-B 4-Port Cable/DSL
Ask retailer to get right model for your broadband.
Connect the remote computer with wireless.

You will find the drivers you need (except for the modem driver) for xp here: http://forums11.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/bizsupport/questionanswer.do?threadId=1226016

There is also a modem driver but I have not looked for it hard enough cause I don't use the modem anymore. I connect to the internet via DSL, however some people still use the modem to connect to the internet or to send and receive faxes on their PC's. Hope this helps.
