I would suggest setting the IP, Gateway, DNS and proxy (if it exists) statically on the devices... Just use one compatible with your network (something DHCP would assign for an ip).

Connect motorola modemsbSB6121 to Belink N600 wireless router with out losing internet signal

Step one turn on PC directly connected to ModemsbSB6121 without Wi FI router being involved.
Step two go to Command prompt type in ipconfig (press enter)
Step three note IP address of default gateway and ip address issued to P.C.
Step four type in default gateway address into browser and log into Modem.
Step five look for DHCP Server and allocate IP addresses from at least 50 for example starting ip lease ending ip lease
Step six connect Wi Router to P.C. via ethernet cable only - remove ModemSB6121
Step Seven shutdown and restart p.c
Step Eight go to Command prompt type in ipconfig (press enter)
Step Nine note IP address of default gateway and ip address issued to P.C.
Step Ten type in default gateway address into browser and log into Wi Fi Router
Step Eleven Change IP address on Router to 2 as example (it has to match in that modem device would have been 192,168.0.1)
(if it was make wi fi make sure subnet mask is the same like
Step twelve Change DHCP Server to off
Step Thirteen may need to set default gateway to MODEM IP address for example
Step Fourteen plug modem router into Wi Fi router may need to plug into WAN port on WI FI router .
Step Fifteen shutdown and Restart Computer
Step Sixteen go to Command prompt type in ipconfig (press enter)
Step Seventeen type in PING (if this is modem IP address and default gateway IP addess)
All this above is to avoid IP address conflicts or mismatching
Subnet mask should be
either it uses or it uses make sure Wi FI router is set to different address to Modem Router.
I suspect either a clash occurs or your P.C gets a different IP range from ther WI FI DHCP server.
Happy troubleshooting !

I have no internet connection when i connect my adsl router with enhwi g2 router in WAN, then from lan1 connect my pc. Please solve my problem. Tnx

First test to see that you can connect to the Internet by connecting directly to the modem.

If yes, then check that the cables are connected correctly and that the LEDs are on. (Just a check :). Telephone line to LINE IN on modem then Ethernet/Cat 5 from LAN port on modem to WAN port on Encore router, then Ethernet/Cat 5 cable from LAN port on router to PC.)

Use browser (Internet Explorer, Safari, Mozilla) to connect to web interface of router (make sure your TCP/IP settings on PC are set to obtain IP address using DHCP).

Open browser and type in the IP Address of the router ( is the default) where you usually type in the name of the website you want to go.

Go to the LAN Interface Setup page (you are now inside your router).

Change the IP Address from to (leave the subnet mask as it is).

Change the DHCP Client Range from - (the default) to -

Click on Apply Changes button.You may lose connectivity to the router, but you can reconnect by typing in the new IP Address You may need to renew the IP address of the PC, but that can be easily done by rebooting the system if it doesn't happen automatically.

Let me know how you go, or leave a message if you still can't connect. I would ask that you tell me the model of the ADSL modem however.

No internet on PC when cables going through router

Hello there,

You have to start from the beginning and my solution would be:

1) Remove any connections(also don't forget to turn of wifi on your laptop) to router and except the power cord. With the unit powered ON locate the reset pinhole on the back of router.

2) Press and hold reset button for at least 15 secs. then release, wait for 20-30 secs. before the router can completely rebooted.

3) Configure your Computer IP address to “Obtain an IP address automatically” .

4) Connect internet cable to router on port labeled "WAN". Connect PC to any LAN ports available.

5) Now lets configure wireless router. Open any browser you have (IE, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, etc.). On the address bar type: "" (without quotes). Default username: admin ; default password: admin click "OK".

6) Go through "SETUP WIZARD" until you reach the "Setup WAN Interface" page. On "WAN Access Type:" select "DHCP" then click next.

7) You may configure your "Basic Wireless Settings" to Public or Private until finished configuring.

8) On "Operation Mode" be sure you operate on "Gateway" mode.

That's it! Hope this helps.

Network card doesdie not acquire DCHP internet address from router. Router port and cables verified.

As you have said that your router assigns IP address to some other computer, its obvious that there can be no problem with your router.
So please try the following steps:
Goto your network adapter settings page


Select the circled options.

Provide the above settings. click ok.
Now disconnect the cable from your router and connect it back.
Everything should work fine, if DHCP is working properly in your router.
If still problem persists, then try "Use the following IP address " option in the above dialog box and provide IP as follows and try again.
Please ensure and change gateway and ip according to your router.
Gateway ip is the one which is your router ip ( the one which you give in internet explorer to enter into your router settings page)

In this way you should be able to connect to your router. If successfully connected, then it also implied that DHCP is not properly running in your router and now you have connected to router by providing an IP address manually.

I hope this is helpful in solving your problem

Encore Wireless Router Wireless connection problem

You need to have a cable connection from the laptop to the router first then go to the router setting by typing something like 192.x.x.x which differs from router to router.This should be available in the manual or in many cases are printed underneath the router.Once you get to the set up page for the router then you can set up the encryption type and create a key which will be needed by the laptop to connect to the network.Hope this helps.

Internet connection speed of the Encore ENHWI-G2

if you're router is in the B+G setting, try setting it to the B setting, this is because the wireless adapter in the i-phone/i-touch uses only the B setting, sucks for most part.. but that got my i-phone working like a charm.. hope this helps

Can't get dynamic ip address

What about your desktop pc? Have you checked the services on it to make sure it is not broadcasting DHCP? Also, think about switching over to Stealth Mode (Non-broadcast SSID) instead of MAC filtering. MAC filtering can be cummbersome and if it is just you, then do away with it.
