If you have cable internet then you need to :
* disconnect router from cable modem
* restart the cable modem (power off-on)
* restart the router (power off-on)
* connect cable modem to router WAN port using CAT5 straight cable

If problem still exist try changing the cable to new one. If it still does not work then contact your ISP

Hi Joycie27,

Depending on the brand of router that you're accustimed to, it would be first advisable to see if all the led lights on your router are blinking. Make sure that the WAN port and Lan ports are blinking green (sometimes green and orange mixtures) to indicate connectivity.

Next, take a look at your modem. Make sure that the led lights indicating connectivity to the internet is steady (or blinking if that's how your modem indicates connectivity). Once you can confirm that both are working fine, move on to the next set of actions. If you face a problem in these 2 initial steps, for the router issue, do what Vakhtang suggested. If it's a modem issue, shutdown modem, unplug and replug cables at both ends and then switch modem on.

Of both are working and you still cannot get an IP address, perhaps it;s to do with the link from the lan port to the computer. What i suggest is, make sure that (if you're using a linksys router) the blue (otherwise known as straight through cable) is hooked properly to the ethernet port of the computer and the router. Click on start>run>type cmd and you will come to a command prompt screen.

In it, type in ipconfig /release (with spacing) and wait for the ipaddress to be dropped. The type in ipaddress /renew. This refreshes all connection with etehrnet adapters. IF after this process you still do not get an IP address, perhaps the fault likes with your NIC (network interface card) and not the router, following which, you might have to change. However, also remeber to test your modem and your router to see if this issue canbe solved via those means. All the best.

Cannot connect e4200 to isp..just loopback address


You shouldn't be connecting the device directly to your ISP, but rather to a modem that is connected to the ISP. The modem will then handle the NAT for your network and your E4200 should be able to pick up a private IP address using DHCP from your modem. Or you can set a static IP on your wireless router as long as that address is available and on the same subnet as your modem. You should also exclude any static IP addresses from being handed out over DHCP so you avoid IP addressing conflicts.

If I lock my router, will my IP address be undectectable to any website I visit?


No. But first some clarification...

If you are connected to the LinkSys through a home network your computer will be getting an IP address of either 192.x.x.x or 172.x.x.x. This IP address cannot be seen by servers on the internet. However, the one that is for your household which is provided by your ISP can always be seen. This is how the internet knows where to send the information that you request back to you.

My router is not working. i have to connect it directly to my modem


have you rebooted your modem after you plugged in your router? remember, your modem picks up you computer's ip address and stays with that address until it gets powered off and on. then it gets the ip address of whatever device you have plugged in to. if you plugged your router to your modem without power cycling the modem, then you won't connect other devices wirelessly because it does not recognize the ip address.

Computer cannot connect to internet although it show connected to linksys


you need to check whether the IP address is correct. normally, linksys router gives you the ability of having DHCP. so the IP address must be picked up automatically. check the setting on your TCP/IP and set to automatically obtain IP address.

Netgear WGR614 v6 I would like to host Nascar races & need to open TCP Port 8590 to allow this to happen . Can anyone help me ? Thanks Lenny


You need about 3 pieces of information to make this work; the machine that's going to serve's IP address, the password to your router, and a machine on the network.

You can let the serving machine obtain an IP address automatically, but if it changes you will have to reset your server IP address all the time. So, for fun, give it an address in your IP range, generally 192.168.1.x. Pick a number like maybe 250. Then, log into your Netgear (192.168.1.1) and use admin and the password to get to the router web page. On the left tab, go to port forwarding, create a new custom service, and put in 8590 and the IP address of the server.

Once you apply it, it will show up in the table and you'll see what port, a name, and the internal IP address 8590 goes to.

WRT300N Wireless Router change to DHCP


I would set the new wireless router to have a static ip address on the same subnet as the first router.  Then set the DNS and Default Gateway the same as the first router.  When computers connect they should pick up an ip from the first router.
