Usually you need to program your router with the ISP's informations, is your ISP using PPPOE (user name & password required) to connect to there server or is it DHCP (automatic IP)???, once you have these informations you open your browser, than enter the IP address of the router in the address bar of the browser, than enter the user name & password of the router, go to the SETUP tab and select the correct type of connection (PPPOE or DHCP) if it's DHCP you normally don't need a user name & password than save & restart the router, if it's PPPOE you need to enter a user name & password (supplied by the ISP) than save & restart the router....

to find the ip address of the router, once your computer is connected to the router you click START, than RUN, type CMD in the bar, than a black window will pop up, type IPCONFIG, look for DEFAULT GATEWAY, note the IP address in the form of numbers separated with dots (ex: 192.168.0.1)

if you can't log in the router (unknown user name & password) than you have to RESET the router by pressing and holding the reset switch (usually in the back of the unit) for 20 seconds, this will bring the router to factory default, than you can log in with the default user name & password according to the router's manual...

You could try calling your new ISP's help desk, they can walk you through the setup if they are a GOOD and serious supplier...

Good luck!

I just switched from cable modem to dsl modem..dsl modem gets on the internet when connected directly to computer..once connected to router doesnt connect to internet


Your new ISP is DSL. the router was working before with the cable modem. The settings for the cable and DSL ISP are different. Now your computer is working when you connect it directly to the DSL modem. that means the modem is working.
The DSL modem works on 2 different modes.
You will need to check which mode is your modem working on and according to the settings of your modem you will need to set up the router.
To change the settings of the router, you will need to open the set up page of the router.

In step 11 of set up disk it says router cannot connect to internet-try turning cable/dsl modem off and on again..whats wrong?


Turning the cable/dsl modem off and on again resets the modem and if the modem LEDs do not light up then either the modem is faulty or the connection from the ISP to your modem is broken or not linked.
Contact your ISP and explain the problem and get them to test the connection to your modem.

I have a us robotics router 8054. It works fine with my dsl modem, but I'm switching to comcast and I can't get it to link up


Since you change ISP from dsl to cable you need to configure the router to work with your new ISP which is Comcast , first better you reset the router by pressing the reset button for 10 seconds while power is ON and then after that reconfigure it back.....

Wireless icon shows full strength however internet does not work. Internet button blinks.


Has your wireless router/modem been configured to your ISP's instructions.
The blinking PPP or Internet LED means the wireless router is not connecting to your ISP.
You should also contact your ISP to get them to test the connection to your router/modem especially if you have a DSL modem.

Dynex dx-ehb4 will not change ip addresses


I am not familiar with that router so I will provide general knowledge and you can apply it to fix your problem.
It sounds like your cable modem is willing to supply a single IP address. This can and should be connected to the WAN port of your router. The problem is that the router is not assigning IP addresses to the equipment that is connected to its LAN ports. Instead, it allows that single cable modem IP to be assigned to connection #1 and everybody else gets nothing. Get the computer working through it, connect to the router as per the owners manual and turn on NAT or DHCP, whichever it offers. Reboot the computer and connect xbox and you should be good. This was probably not an issue with DSL because your DSL modem would supply up to about 10 IP addresses and they also passed through the router.

My Dynex 4 port router will not communicate with my DSL modem


Have your router clone the MAC Address of your computer. The MAC address is a hardware address on your network card and DSL providers seem to like to bind it to account. What is probably happening is when the router connects to your ISP and asks for an IP address, it looks up your account info and and decides - nope, wrong device. Cloning the MAC address will make them happy. If you are not able to clone the address, call your provider's tech support and ask them to clear the MAC address from your account. Make sure you have the router plugged into the modem and not the computer or you are back to where you started.

Linksys WRT54G wireless router not compatible with Aztech modem?


Darvin, gotta love your ISP. Never fear......

if it isn't too much of a problem (knowing you have wireless setup done already), then do a factory reset on your router ** remember to copy the WEP Key if you have, or recall the PASS PHRASE so you won't have to reset all wireless devices ** Reset is located on back, you need a ball point pen to reach the reset switch.

Reset process: unplug, take ballpoint pen & insert into reset switch & plug unit back in. Sometimes tricky, but you should notice green light goes to yellow/orange upon resetting.

RESET or NOT - you want the Linksys set for ::

Connection Type - AUTOMATIC (for automatic discovery)
Router IP Address - 192.168.2.1

DCHP - ON, Addresses - 192.168.2.100 and allow 5-50 users
(for security, assign the number of DESKTOP + WIRELESS expected users +1, this way you don't get overrun without knowlege)

Take the cable from Aztech ETHERNET OUT to WAN on Linksys. (usually BLUE) (??) not 100% sure as I have the little silver pocket edition of the same Router. - power cycle (turn both DSL modem & Linksys off for 20 seconds. turn on DSL Modem, wait till it's about as ready as possible, turn on Linksys, should only take 20-30 seconds to power up & recognize.

VERIFY SETTINGS: access router - 192.168.2.1, goto STATUS. you should see IP Addressing, SubNet, DNS1 & DNS2 settings. If you do not, then you have no internet connection.

ALTERNATIVE,

Setup Linksys Router with COnnection Type: PPoE, you will need your ISP assigned ID & Password. Follow all other instructions properly.

If you still have problems, please contact me at 906-495-1707 or via Yahoo IM junodr@yahoo.com or through this website.

New modem now router doesn't work


you need to make sure that you can access the internet from your new modem first. if you can't access the internet, you need to call your ISP. but if you can access the internet properly using your modem, you need to reconfigure your router by running the setup cd to recognize the new modem.

hope this'll help you but if you still have problems, just provide the brand and model of your new modem and your router and your ISP as well.

ciao!

Scenario 2 to 4: Scenario 2) The modem does not have an Ethernet port. The modem is a dial-up modem for traditional dial-up service. To use the Router, you need a cable/DSL modem and high-speed Internet connection.

Scenario 3) You cannot use the DSL service to connect manually to the Internet.
After you have installed the Router, it will automatically connect to your Internet Service Provider (ISP), so you no longer need to connect manually.

Scenario 4) The DSL telephone line does not fit into the Router’s Internet port.
The Router does not replace your modem. You still need your DSL modem in order to use the Router. Connect the telephone line to the DSL modem, insert the setup CD into your computer, and then follow the on-screen instructions
