Cannot receive IP from cable modem

I have used this router for over a year now. Everything works on it, wireless, dhcp server, the gigabit switch. But now it cannot pull a IP from my motorola cable modem. I've reset both devices, the modem and the dlink, reset to factory settings, everything, still won't get an ip from the modem. I know the modem isn't the issue, as I hooked up an older dlink wireless b router and its working fine, its my backup! I have the newest firmware and everything. Any help would be great!

I had this problem with another type of router. If the software is fine and the modem shows no problems, its probably your ethernet port on the router. Alot of routers ports go bad after a certain amount of use. It could have been a defect from start and just started to show problems. Logically at this point its hardware. You troubleshot the rest. Last thing to point at is the WAN port on the router going bad.

How can I make settings to support DHCP IP assignments and also recognize my manual IP's assigned to the LAN connected devices?


The easiest way I can think of is to shrink the DHCP address pool.

To do that, at least on the model of Actiontec router I have, click on "Network (Home/Office)" the go to the "IP Address Distribution" section of the screen. "DHCP Server" should already be selected, and under that, you'll find "Start IP addresses" and "End IP addresses." Usually, the start will be 192.168.1.2 and the end will be 192.168.1.254. What I usually do is change the start address to 192.168.1.200. That leaves over 50 addresses for normal wireless connections, and I'll general assign IP addresses from the rest of the range as follows:
192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.9: routers, APs, etc.
192.168.1.50 to 192.168.1.59: printers
192.168.1.100 to 192.168.1.109 for other static devices. (I often find that Blu-Ray players, cable boxes, etc. behave better if they have a static address.)

But really, on home network, I doubt you'll have more than 15 devices that need static addresses, so you could set the DHCP start address as low as 192.168.1.16 if you wanted to.

Setup wndr4000 as wireless access point


You need to read the router set up in the manual for a cable modem.

You need to check that the device IP ranges are the same.

There is not a disconnection of the DHCP server in the router listed, but there is some advice on setting up the router as a wireless extender which might be useful.

Hello, I am currnetly using a Belkin ADSL2+ modem with wireless G Router and have just been given a D-Link Dir-855 Xtreme N Duo router I wish to use and have been told I can buy a ADSL Modem only to...


I think there is no need to replace the ADSL2+ Router.
Belkin is fine and should work well in combination with the D-Link Router and you would get the downlink data rate up to 300Mbps.
I recommended that you use Belkin Router as ADSL Modem and Dlink to provide wireless access. (Instead of buying ADSL Modem)
So, all you have to do is : -
-Turn-off wireless signal of the Belkin modem.
-Connect the Dlink Router to the Modem (Belkin) through CAT6 Cable.
-Configure the Dlink Router, Secure it and Enjoy 300Mbps Data Rate.

(In this way your Belkin will serve as ADSL Modem and Dlink would be the wireless router)

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.
Hope it helps! Good Luck!

I have a unstable linksys WAG200G what can I do


Converting A Router To A Switch The five steps are:
  1. [Optional] Put a piece of electric tape over the WAN port so it doesn't get used.
  2. Disable the DHCP server.
  3. Change the downstream router's LAN IP.
  4. [Optional] Turn off the wireless radio on the downstream router.
  5. Connect an Ethernet cable from a LAN port on the upstream router to a LAN port on the downstream router.
Step 1: Putting a piece of electric tape over the WAN port isn't necessary. But it is a good way to prevent future problems caused by someone plugging a device into that port.
Step 2: Log into the downstream router, look for the DHCP configuration section, and disable the DHCP server. For example, on a Dlink DI-614+, DHCP server configuration is a menu in the Home configuration section.

Step 3: Change the downstream router's LAN IP to an unused IP in the same subnet as the upstream router. Log into the upstream router and find the DHCP server controls. Figure 3 shows a typical set of DHCP server controls. You can see that 192.168.3.200 - 250 is the range of addresses that will be issued by this router's DHCP server.
You can use any IP address outside (above or below) this range, except for 0 and 255, which are reserved. You also can't use the IP address used by the upstream router. This is usually 1, which in this case is 192.168.3.1. But if you log into your upstream router's admin screens using an IP address with anything other than 1 as the last octet, i.e. XXX.XXX.XXX.1, then just don't use that address.
Thus, a safe LAN IP address for the downstream router that isn't used by the upstream router is an address from 192.168.3.2 to 192.168.3.199. So I assigned my downstream router a LAN IP of 192.168.3.3 (Figure 4).
Step 4: [Wireless routers only] Disable the downstream router's wireless function. It doesn't hurt to unscrew the antennas from the downstream router as well if they are detachable. This gets them out of the way since you aren't using them anymore. Figure 5 shows the wireless disabled for a D-Link DGL-4300.
Step 5: Connect the downstream router. Run an Ethernet cable from a LAN port on the upstream router to a LAN port on the downstream router. The LAN ports are the ports that often grouped together and not labeled as WAN or Internet.

I would like to manage the router's dhcp config. How do I get into the management screen?


The DGS-1008D is a gigabit switch and not a router. It does not have a DHCP server as it will simply pass traffic between all the devices connected to it. It is meant to be connected to a DHCP server (router).

You'll want to configure your router as a dhcp server. Connect the switch to your router's lan port. Connect the remaining devices to a port on the switch. Your wireless access point should have it's dhcp server disabled. You can only have one dhcp server per network. The wireless can get it's address from the router's dhcp and the wireless client devices will get their ip address from the router, as well. If your wireless access point is a router with a wan/broadband port and some switch ports you will want to make sure that you are connecting to your Asus switch via one of the switch ports.
Be sure that your client devices are configured to get their ip address via dhcp and you should be surfing the interweb in no time flat.

Hi,
You may want to enable the DHCP reservation feature of the router.
What is DHCP Reservation and how do I configure it?

What is DHCP Reservation?
A DHCP reservation is a permanent IP address assignment. It is a specific IP address within a DHCP scope that is permanently reserved for leased use to a specific DHCP client.
You can configure a DHCP reservation in your DHCP server when you need to reserve a permanent IP address assignment. Use reservations for the DHCP enabled devices like print and file servers or other application servers which always have the fixed IP address on network.


Step 1: Access the router's web-based setup page. For instructions, click here
Step 2: When the router's web-based setup page appears, click Setup.
Step 3: Click on Basic Setup.
Step 4: Make sure that DHCP Server is Enabled. Then, click the DHCP Reservation button if you want to assign a fixed local IP address to a MAC address.

Hawking wireless router (HWRN1A300N) will not connect ot internet


First of all - your ISP has nothing to to with DHCP. DHCP is handled internally by your router (or DHCP server).
If you did not configure your router otherwise, it should hand out an IP address automatically.
If you ipconfig shows that you have an IP address, then I assume that this address is manually configured.
You should set everything to automatic until you know it works.
So...
Go to your start menu -> Control panel -> Network connections.
Right-click on "Network Connections" and choose "open".
Look for your "Local Area Connection", if you are wired into the router, or something like "Wireless Network Connection" if you're using wireless.
Right-click "Local Area Connection" and choose "Properties".
Double-click "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and see that both "Obtain an IP address automatically" AND "Obtain DNS server address automatically" are selected.
Click "OK" twice and make sure that all property windows are closed.
Go to the command prompt and re-do "ipconfig /all" (No quotation marks of course).
Check the line that says DHCP server, it should be the same IP as your Default Gateway (your router).

If this does not work for you, copy the result form that command here and I have another look.

If it works, please come back and leave a comment. This might help others with the same problem.
