This answer is for a Dynamic and Static Cable connection (I.E. ATnT-BI, Cox, Adelphia, Rogers, Roadrunner, Charter, and Comcast). Note: Please configure the router with the computer that was last connected directly to the cable modem. Step 1: Log into the web-based configuration by typing in the IP address of the router (default:192.168.0.1) in your web browser. The username is admin (all lowercase) and the password is blank (nothing). Step 2: Click on the Basic Setup tab. Dynamic IP Address is the default value, however, if Dynamic IP Address is not selected as the WAN type, select Dynamic IP Address by clicking on the radio button. Click Save and Restart. Step 3: Click on the Device Status tab and verify that you have a solid link between the router and the modem. If you do not have a solid link between the modem and the router follow the steps below: # Turn the cable modem off (first) # Turn the router off # Leave them off for 2 minutes** # Turn the cable modem on (first) # Wait until you get a solid cable light on the cable modem # Turn the router on # Wait 30 seconds ** If you have a Motorola (Surf Board) modem, leave off for at least 5 minutes. Step 4: Follow Step 1 again and log back into the web configuration. Click the Device Status tab . If you do not already have a public IP address under the WAN Ethernet heading, click on the DHCP Release and Renew buttons. Setup Static Cable Connection Step 1: Log into the web based configuration by typing in the IP address of the router (default:192.168.0.1) in your web browser. The username is admin (all lowercase) and the password is blank (nothing). Step 2: Click the Basic Setup tab. Select the Static IP Address radio button and enter in your static settings obtained from the ISP in the fields provided. Note: If you do not know your settings, you must contact your ISP. Step 3: Click on Save and Restart. Step 4: Click on the Device Status tab and verify that you have a solid link between the router and the modem. If you do not have a solid link between the modem and the router follow the steps below: # Power cycle the cable modem and router. # Turn the cable modem off (first) # Turn the router off # Leave them off for 2 minutes** # Turn the cable modem on (first) # Wait until you get a solid cable light on the cable modem # Turn the router on # Wait 30 seconds ** If you have a Motorola (Surf Board) modem, leave off for at least 5 minutes.

No ip address

Many people need to connect additional computers or game consoles. To do this, most use a home network router, which shares a single IP address across multiple computers. No special configuration of your Shaw service or modem is required.

For information on how to configure a home network, consult the manufacturer's documentation included with the hub or router you have purchased.

  • Access the router configuration page.
  • Set the router to use Cable as Internet connection type.

D-Link DI-524 is not communicating with modem

Checklist:
* Is DHCP configured correctly?
* Connect your server and laptop to a switch (not directly with the cable)
* Can they ping each other?
* Check that the firewall is configured (or switched off if you have another FW in place)
* Default gateway should be your router, not the computers (until you have configured RRAS for example)

Internet problem connection.....

your computer has been set up to be the PPPoE account holder for the modem. if you have a router, you will need to configure the router to login to the ISP account using the PPPoE information so that your router is the account holder for the modem, then you will be able attach multiple computers to the internet using the router.
