You might have to open up your network connections click start control panel network connections this may vary depending on your operating system look for local area connection if you see a red x or a yellow exclamation or question mark you will need to update or install the driver or it could be firewalled
make sure your modem/routers settings are correct ie:password user name,firewall settings to allow your internet to connect also test the lead/s whether usb or ethernet you might check your modem first to make sure that you are getting a connection
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll down network adapters + expand Ethernet driver you might see a yellow question mark? This means you need to update the driver right click you will have options to update driver disable uninstall or select properties general you will have the options to troubleshoot or to update driver rollback or uninstall
a yellow? question mark means you need to install/update driver right click to install driver
last resort ring your ISP internet sevice provider get them to check your modem for internet access online
hope this helps

I have a smartbook and i need to know who give out an ip address, is it linksys or the cable company?


The wireless router issues an IP address to your all your computers.
The ISP issues an IP address to your cable modem which is connected to your wireless router and the wireless router re-issues a local IP addresses to all the computers on your local network so all your computers on your network can access the Internet and to each other cpmputer.

Title: Setting-Up a Wired Computer to Obtain an IP Address Automatically Article ID: 4033
Configuring a wired computer to get an IP address automatically will enable it to get an IP address from a DHCP server. Instead of manually entering the IP settings which will consume much time, performing this procedure will ensure that the computer will get the correct TCP/IP settings.
Configuring a computer to get an IP address automatically is useful when:
  • Connecting a computer to a network with a DHCP server. Ensuring that the computer is getting the correct TCP/IP settings.
To configure a computer to automatically get an IP address, you have to check the TCP/IP properties of the Ethernet Adapter installed on the computer. Follow the steps below for instructions.
NOTE: Make sure the wired computer is properly connected to a network with a DHCP server.
Checking if the Computer is Set to DHCP

Modem is giving wireless signal, yet I need IP address so I can make network secure. HELP!


Is there any computer connected to the wireless modem with the ethernet cable.
If not you will need to connect the computer to the modem to check the settings of the modem.
Does it have DHCP server. Do you have any computer online through the modem. If yes, check the IP address on that computer. You should have Private IP address on that computer.

I use a dl 514 router. the computer shows a wireless connection and a strong signal but i'm not able to get online. now that I'm using a cable, it still shows a wireless connection with a strong signal.


Its quite likely that the router is not connected to your computer wirelessly. Which means, your wireless card is not picking up a IP address. I would suggest two thigns 1. In your wireless utlity , try to repair the connection. 2. Check if you have a static IP address. If you do, remove it.
Hope this helps
Thanks Ranjit

Paradyne 6218-12-200 won't connect all computers


A public IP address is usually assigned to the WAN port (outside/public side), which is how your router is conected to your Internet provider service.

A private IP is always assigned to the private network side (LAN = Inside). Unless you are hard coding your IP addressing on each of your devices, you will need to have DHCP enabled in your router with enough user IPs for your devices (more than 1).
