Question about D-Link DI-704P Router
I was just recently switched over to Time Warner from Comcast. I have been using this hub cnig-914 to hook up all the computers in my home. Everything was fine until the transaction process started. I have a hookup only if I directly go to my main pc, but when I try to go through the hub I have no connection to any of the computers Any advice is very appreciated. Thanks
as you have mention, you switch from comcast to time warner, means that you need to reconfigure your cnig-914. Since both providers required a registered mac address, you need to do a mac cloning with your cnig-914, take note that it should be the MAC ADDRESS or PHYSICAL ADDRESS of the computer can go online with the modem. Then, after that you can just simply do a power cycle
how to do mac address cloning check your cnig-914 manual
How to do a power cyle :
* turn off the computer
* turn off the router
* turn off the modem
after a minute or two
* turn on the modem (if all lights are ok)
* turn on the router
* turn on the pc (check the connection)
hopefully everything works fine

Can you log into the Hub at the IP http://192.168.1.1/ when it is connected to the computer and the internet connection? Perhaps it is just a configuration issue. http://www.cnetusa.com/support/manuals/CNIG-914D.pdf is the link to the manual to setup your router. Without further information about your network and its configuration I can't give more specific information. If you will please post any specifics about your configuration I can hopefully assist further. Please tell me how many computers there are, how many are directly connected to the router and how many are wirelessly trying to connect. Another suggestion is check your boot up order. Often times you have to unplug everything, then plug in the internet router, give it time to full boot up and have all lights on, then plug in the additional router (in this case I am assuming that it would be the CNet Cnig914), again allowing all the lights to come on, then plug in or turn on any pc that is connected directly to the router, followed by any computer that is wireless. This allows each system to be assigned the IP address and recognize the previous equipment. Once it gets an IP and everything is working you shouldn't have to repeat this process.

Might I suggest that you reset the router to its default configuration by pressing and holding the reset button until it reboots. This way you will be dealing with the default configuration. Then try to use it. Remember the default login ID is admin and the password is Password or admin. Lets hope this helps

With a cable broadband connection, the cable line comes into the cable modem. The cable modem does the work changing the cable signal to a network connection and sends an I.P. address to the computer. With some cable internet providers you can hook the network cable into the in port on a router, wireless or wired, then hook up computers to the router. At this point the router gets the IP from cable and uses it's own IP routing for your internal network. Some broadband providers control your access by the computers mac address which registers with the vendor. If this is the case then the easy way to make it work is to get a router which can clone a mac address so the vendor still sees the same mac address.

1. Reset the cable modem. There should be a reset button on the rear... hold it in for 10 seconds. If there is no button, unplug it (pull the backup battery too, if applicable)
2.Login to your routers web interface. IP address should be 192.168.0.1
3.Click the status tab.
4.Under WAN>Connection> click "DHCP Release"-----> Then click "renew"
If that does not work Return to the routers web interface. Click the setup tab ----> click "Manual configure"
Under DHCP Internet connection type> click "clone mac address"
Do NOT forget to save your changes before switching tabs in the routers web interface.
