Depending on you ISP (Internet Service Provider) it may assign you a DHCP address with a certain amount lease time. in other words when your modem requests an IP to connect to the web your ISP says 'OK here use this one for this long'. When that time limit is reached it will request a new address at which point may then get a new one or it might just re-new the current one you have.

Typically your can log into your modems web interface and find a menu that will show the current status of your modem and somewhere on that page should be a release/renew button that you can click to force the modem to let go of its current IP address and request a new one. Again it might just give you the same address you just released back to you though.

Having the same IP address is not really a bad thing.

Hope that helps clear it up.

Make sure that the cable from the modem goes to the Router's Internet slot.
then the cable from either 1,2,3,4 can go in your computer.

then you need to turn OFF the router and modem for 1 minute
then turn ON the modem first, wait for 30 seconds.
Then turn ON the router, wait for 30 seconds. It shold work now.

I have a DHG536C Cable modem from Comcast. I am using a Linksys Switch, EZS88W, and the modem can see one computer but nothing eles, what is wrong?

Have you connected all computers, then switched off the switch and modem. now switch off your computers.
If you then power everything up, it should detect the computers, and assign them the correct IP addresses.
If your still having problems, you may need to assign static ip addresses (google for instructions for your computers/switch)

Installation problem with edimax 6104kp

Hi Omdi,

Please proceed with the following instruction as follow.

1.) Connect first the modem to your pc, if you find it is working then get the IP Address, Subnet, Gateway, Primary DNS, Alternative DNS at the network properties TCP/IP.

2.) Open your router where you can configure the static IP or manually enter the IP address, subnet, gateway, primary dns, alternative dns.

3.) Make it sure you used the cable properly by connecting it to the appropriate line. For the modem to router you should connect the cable to WAN port. And the LAN port must be go through the computer.

If you still experience the problem, please let me know.

Best regards,
