Can connect to router but not internet


Ok so the router will broadcast even without an IP from the modem. Without the IP even though your pc is talking to the router you will have no internet. The IP is assigned to the modem from your ISP "internet service provider" The router has to assume the IP then assign a mac address to the pc using the internet. A residential modem meaning your not a business is given a dynamic IP which can change at anytime the blade server wants it to. A business gets a static ip which never changes. There lies your issue. Whats happened is your modem has been assigned a new IP and the router is still trying use the old IP. So unplug your modem and router. Plug the modem back in and let it sync up. Once all the lights are back on "with exception for the "link" light plug the router back in give it a cpl minutes your internet will work again.

We had a power outage. Everything is back working expect I cannot connet to the internet. My cable company has reset the modeum and when I plug directly into my computer its fine, however when I plug...


First check to make sure you have all the light on the Dlink router lighting up (i.e. power, internet, ethernet, ect). Weather the lights are good or not, check your cables and make sure they are secure. If all the light are proper, then unplug the router for a few seconds then plug it back in. Once all the lights are on try again. If you are using wireless, plug in wired (ethernet cable) to the router. Depending on your OS and settings, you should see in the lower right hand corner a computer icon. If this has a red X on it, the router is not providing a signal to the computer. If everything looks good wired, try the internet again.

If the lights are not correct on the router and checking the cables did not fix the issue, you most likely have a problem with the router its self.

I hope this helps, if not comeback with more information (i.e. what lights are on the router, the IP address the router is giving the computer, wired works but wireless does not, the more information the better).

I am getting ready to switch from dial-up to satellite internet service, I have a Compaq Presario SR1730T and need to know what type of wireless router is best or will any wireless router be compatible????


Usually the internet service provider (even satellite) provides a modem/router to access the internet. This being said to purchase a wireless router must mean that you are going to "broadcast" your satellite internet throughout the house so that others in the house can access the internet.

In that case, no it doesn't really matter what kind of wireless router to buy. Just make sure you connect your satellite modem/router (what they send you) into the wireless router correctly. Also, make sure you put a password on that wireless router so that your neighbors or unknown persons do not gain access to your internet/computer.

Thanks.

Internet no longer working, but internal network is fine.


i agree with all the above.. it's definately clear as mud how the network is designed and or funtioning. The machines connected to the wireless d-link router.. are they via cat5 inthe wired ports or wireless ? is the server the machine thats connecting to the switch and wiress router and modem? i'd say reset all switches modems routers and machines.. shut them all down.. then fire the cable modem, then the wireless router then the desktop switch then the server, the workstations and the one lonely wireless.. run "ipconfig /all" on all machines and if they aren't all sharing common ips and access, provide the results here for further investigation.

It seems then that your connection from the pcs to the router is ok but your router connection to the internet is not. If you connect directly to the modem, is it ok?

You must enter your isp logon info into the setup of the router. (especially on DSL connections requiring logon info)
or
There is a cabling problem with your router to your modem. Make sure that your modem is plugged into the WAN port of the router and (if you have one) the WAN light is on.

Who do you have for a internet provider? You may have to call your internet provider & give them your MAC address on your router so it will be reconized on their end. A router let's you connect more than 1 computer to the internet. You installed the software? What light don't come on?
