Cable right connected? Have you a router or a serve who give an IP address, or is your ISP who give the IP. Try to reboot the DHCP server, then start your computer and try again.

I cannot connect to the internet. I was told we need 3 network adapters and we only have one. Is this why all of a sudden we cannot connect?


For connecting to the Internet you need only 1 network adapter. But you need to configure it properly.

I can't reset a 169 series IP address on my 4600C in order to direct connect to a cable modem (and internet).


Provided there is no hardware problems, this issue is fairly easy to resolve.
  1. Completely shutdown the system
  2. Unplug power to the cable modem.
  3. Wait 3 minutes (This allows the temp memory of the cable modem to scrub)
  4. power on the cable modem, let it reset (Takes about a minute)
  5. boot the system.
Normally this will force the cable modem to renew the MAC address of the device connected and give you a valid IP address.
If you still have an APIPA address, try right clicking the local area connection ICON and click REPAIR
If still no connection, reboot computer in safe mode w/networking and try again. If you get a connection then the issue is software (Firewall, Virus, Malware)
If you still are not getting a valid IP address, check your cabling and connection (Replace cable with a known good one if available) or try a different network card.

once you go to the manufacturers website select support then download the correct drivers under network adapters or something about network.

Computer will not recognize drivers for ethernet card


Was this all working just fine prior to reinstalling the system on the computer. I want to first rule out any hardware connection problem. When you check the ethernet adaptor in the device manager, does any punctuation mark appear next to it to indicate a driver problem? if not, your problem is not driver -related, but rather settings. If the LAN connection appears in the manage connections or the connection wizard, you may only need to enter the correct settings to make this work. Make sure TCP/IP is enabled for the device, and that DHCP is enabled in the TCP/IP settings. The exception to this is if the modem does not assign an address by DHCP but is instead set for only a static address. If that be the case, you will need to enter a static IP address in the TCP/IP settings. In that case, look for a number on the modem in a xxx.xxx.x format, enter the number in the TCP/IP static IP address but adding 10. If the address is static, you will also need to enter a default gateway, which your ISP should have provided to you, along with the static address

If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!.

Hi i have a Dell Dimension E521 desktop and connect to the internet through an ethernet cable to a BT Hub. This has work up to yesterday when we could not connect.The pc advises it cannot find a...


its sure an IP conflict is there and i hope you don't have a router - a modem is there so that when you connect to the internet, computers will get ip address from your service provider and not from your device which is not having that function because of no router. Kindly check in your network properties that you have specified any manual IP address delete it and keep the option obtain Ip address automatically. Before all this you have to go to the my computer right click and select properties then hardware ->devicemanager ->networkadapters - under that you uninstall all the adapters and restart your pc


Thanks

How do you login to the 3100 modem to configure it in bridged mode


Is it a modem or router? And is it yours or a cable providers.

If its the later, then most likely you wont be able to get into it as they are configured for that company and they control the settings remotely from the service provider. You would have to call them to configure it as they have it locked.

If its yours, some manufacturers put the default login and password on the bottom and you have to IP into it. ( put the units IP address into your Internet explorer bar, just like an address. This i the same way you configure wireless routers like linksys.

Hope this helps, let me know if you need more help.

Cable modems


I have heard of people doing it.
However, you will need to pay the cable company for an additional line / service, as the MAC address of the modem has to be registered with them in order for it to work.
