    What kind of router?

    Is it new or used?

    Have you gone through any of the install routine on the router after connecting it?

Ok.... did it work before and just quit? Have you recently treid to update the firmware? And.... if this has never been on the system before, have you installed any software that came with it? Of course....model of the unit, what type of modem and PC system you have would be helpful info as well.

Both My Inspiron and linksys will not connect to my ISP. They say both are receiving an invalid IP address! I have used all trouble shooting techniques including trying to release and reset! Even went as...


Step 1: Plug the computer (ethernet wired) directly into the modem. Power cycle the modem and when all the light come on you should have internet. If not call your ISP to trouble shoot.

At this point we should be able to determine if it is a PPPoe connection (needs username and password to connect) or if it logs in automaticly.

Step 2: Plug the router back into the modem and the computer plugged wired (ethernet) to the router. Remove power from both the modem and the router. Plug the modem back in first, once all the lights are on plug in the router. Try to connect.

Step 3: Log in to the router via its IP address (normally 192.168.1.1), if no one has reset the user name password it should admin for both. If it has been reset, you will need to know what the user name and password are to continue.

Step 4: Under setup if in step 1 you found you needed PPPoe, then you need to set that under the setup tab. Make sure you use the user name and password provided to you by your ISP. If you dont need PPPoe then make sure this is set to obtain IP automaticly.

Step 5: save settings. Once the router restarts, try to connect again.

If these step do not work, let me know:

1. who is your ISP?
2. What modem do they use?
3. What is your IP address when plugged directly into the modem?
4. What is your IP address when plugged into the router?

I will be around for about 1 more hour, its 2PM central time now.

Verify that the software you are trying is COMPATIBLE with the operating system on the computer.

Try removing the software and re-installing it in SAFE mode before plugging in the USB or Ethernet cable.

Cant connect to the internet


If you have called your isp to verify that they arent having any issues..

Power cycle your pc, router, and modem..

The pc you just need to restart, but the modem and router, you need to unplug individually for five seconds, and then plug back in..

then after unplugging the modem and wireless router, then restart the pc..

Setting up a netgear router with comcast I had it working when I was on dsl now with cable it won't work


Unplug power to both the router and modem,Plug the power to the modem in and wait 20 seconds or until the lights steady,then plug the router in.
This happens when 2 items try to get an ip from the cable company at the same time.

D link wireless router dir 300. connecting to modem and pc and system tells me that the ethernet connection is not correctly connected ... tried over and over again ... and it just does not work.. thanks...


If the problem is on the side of the modem, the best bet is to unplug your router, reset your modem (through power cycle or reset button), then plug the ethernet cable from the modem into your router, then plug your router back in.

My wireless-G router with spdboster isn't working


Try to reset the reset button of the router to return to his default configuration and try to connect. Look for the pin or ballpen then press the reset at least 15 second.
