Modem will not work after installing a router

The problem is my parents have highspeed and everything was working perfectly fine until my dad tried to hook up a router to connect his second computer. All he did was plug it in. About a hour or so after plugging the router in the modem shut down. Now the dsl and internet light will not come on the modem. The power and ethernet light does come on. They contacted their provider and they sent them a new modem. They are having the same issue with the new modem. My dad had unplugged the router and tried resetting the modem and still no internet or DSL light. Could someone give me some suggestions or solutions on what to do about that problem? Thank you

My Rangemax wireless wndr3000 is not working properly, though it has in the past. The problem seems to be that I'm hooked up to the wireless network (ex. I can print wirelessly), but with no internet....


Same situation here. Wired connection from modem works fine. I can also log in to the router via routerlogin.net. However, the router does not detect an internet connection.

D-Link DIR-600 Router got a new account with att and my dlink wont work. it worked fine untill I had to set up a new account because of a late payment. I tried the install disc but no go all green lights...


Turn off everything and wait for a few minutes and turn on the modem and wait for the lights to be steady then turn on the router and lastly the PC... make sure also that the connection of the modem to the router is correct ( modem should be connected to the WAN/Internet port on the router)

I have DI-604 in line between Windows Vista computer and cable modem. Works fine. Bought DIR-615 (wireless). Several places instructions say, ""Insert the DIR-615 CD into computer and click Install Router....


Contrary to the many warnings not to install the router before starting the installation with the CD, I got the installation to complete only AFTER I installed the router inline thusly:

1. Power everything off.
2. Remove DI-604.
2. Install and connect 615 router to computer and to modem.
3. Apply power to router and modem.
4. Apply power to computer and wait until Windows loads.
5. Insert 615 installation CD.
6. Follow the directions.

Belkin router problems with RCA modem


Do a powercycle. Make sure to completely turn off the modem, router, after 30 seconds, turn on the modem first then the router.
If that will still not work, perhaps there is a need to update the software of your router.

Can not use Internet with new Linksys rangeplus wireless router


Okay chances are your 2wire's ip address is conflicting with your router's ip address. Set up your router to use 192.168.2.1. Save the settings then everything should work for you.

Check for a vaild gateway address on router,start.run.cmd> type in ipconfig.if you dont have a valid ip or gatway. try a powercycle,turn off modem and then router,wait about 10-20 sec and plug modem back in. check your ip and gateway check for a connection, if that dont work call netgear to see if u have a defaulted router, or take it back for new one if u still have a recicpt.
