I assume that all lights are on as normal on the router.

Check the System light.

This indicator blinks green means the Internet Broadband Router is
working successful. Otherwise, this indicator always on or off means the function of the Internet Broadband Router is in a fail state.

If the System light is either always on or off go to step 3 below, otherwise start at step 1.

1. power down router and wait 30 seconds and power up.

Try connecting via then if NO do step 2.

2. disable any firewall programs on the PC

Try connecting via then if NO do step 3.

3. do a factory reset of the router. on the rear panel of the router there should be a small hole with a small button maarked RESET. if you press this in for 10 seconds it should RESET router to FACTORY settings.

Try connecting via and if NO then the router firmware is possibly corrupt or there is some other hardware fault.

    Hi Michael,

    sorry to hear it is still not resolved... Please confirm that when you connect the ethernet cable to the PC that the PC is assigned a valid IP by the router.

  • Dave Jul 23, 2008

    Here is a link to the quick guide and manual for your router. If you donot have these it may be worthwhile to d/l these and recheck that you PC IP configuraation is set correctly

Hi, I want to set up my router to my DCM425 modem (from Time Warner). So far I cannot access the internet on my laptop. I get internet fine when the modem is directly plugged into my laptop, and I can also...

1) Make sure the cable is plugged into the Internet port (or whatever the appropriate port is, since you didn't specify exactly which router).

2) At your router's configuration page, make sure DHCP (Automatic) is selected.

3) After connecting to the router, if it still does not work, open up the command window by going to the search box in the Start Menu or click Run... and type "cmd".

4) Type "ipconfig /release". Wait until this is finished.

5) Type "ipconfig /renew". Wait until this is finished.
This should have given you an IP Address.

6) Try to connect to a website.

LinkSys router early deaths

Your cable modem has a ip address of and your router probably has the same ip address. Hook your computer up to the router and change the ip address to On your router change the router mode to static ip address mode. Then you will need to know your username and password from you cable company, and the Domain Number. Then connect the cable back to the wan port from the modem and the other end to the wan port of the router. Connect the computer to the first lan port on the router and type go to the status page and tell it to connect.

Your cable company is giving you one ip addres and have to pay for another for more than one computer. What are you doing is using the router to receive the first ip address and distrubting out to the other computers.

I cannot get my router to work

If you connect the computer directly to the cable modem, you are able to go online. that is a good sign.
Now it seems that the router and the modem are not communicating with each other. You will need to reconfigure the router or change the router settings so that both the devices will communicate.

Di-624 stopped working

Hi sailaway!
. Make sure the router is going from the modem, to the port marked WAN, on the 624. You can test the cable, by plugging it directly into you computer, from the modem, if you want to. Disconnect the power from your modem, your router, and turn off your computer Wait 1 min. Turn on the Router, wait three full min's. Power up the 624, and wait one min. Power up the PC. Reason for the long wait on the modem is that it has to get data from the internet, to give to the router. If that don't hwlp, try changing the cable from the PC to the router, to a different port. If all that don't work, try resetting the router by gentley pressing a straightened out paperclip into the reset hole in the back. Hold it for 30 sec. If that fail resetting it, try holding it in while you unplug the 624 and plug it back in. If it resets, go thru the first steps to set it up again. If all that fails, your 624 may be bad. Had that happen to me. The steps I listed brought it back to life for about 2 months, and it died completely. Good Luck!

Configuring EDIMAX 6104 for Aztech 600E Router

Does your router automatically set the ip addresses for each computer, or do you have to set them up yourself? Is the computer that can connect the one that is directly connected to the modem? if it does and you asked windows to repair the connection it probably is messed up. check in the router settings to see if your pc's are on the same ip address route (e.g 192.168.x.x), but not all the same last digit; and the subnet masks are all the same (eg
