I spoke to someone at Cox Cable and I was told to contact Motorola and tell them that Cox is a dhcp protocol. I was told by Cox Cable that Motorla need to reset my router. I was told to call 1-800-221-4380, however I am never able to get through or speak to someone becuse there is a recording saying to call back later everytime.
I also have Vonage phone service. If I unhook the router I loose my phone service.

The Linksys Wireless router is fine, but your latop is not configured for DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol). The computer is connected to the router at layer 2, whereas HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol), sits atop the TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) layer, and seems to be trying to query the ISP's (Internet Service Provider) network for a nameserver (via DNS (Dynamic Name Service) protocol) that doesn't exist on the ISP's network. Configuring the laptop for DHCP and specifying no nameserver will fix this (the ISP's network will dynamically assign a DNS).
Its also possible (though a remote possibility) that your Linksys wifi router may be configured to disallow TCP/IP virtual circuits to/from your computer's IP address - but this is a really advanced capability of your Linksys wifi router - few know this capability even exists.
Connecting multiple wifi devices to the Linksys router should be no problem, just configure them all to interact with the router using DHCP.
If cox says it won't work on their system, there's nothing you can do to legally make that unit work. There may even be no physical way to make it work if it's simply using different frequencies or protocols than COX uses. If you want cable internet from COX, you will have to call them and have them install it. Chances are they won't even charge you for the cable box, or it will be a very small monthly fee - and your internet usage will be on top of that.
To connect a laptop to a wireless network for accessing internet....you have two ways
DHCP (Dynamic Host Control Protocol)
Manual entry of settings in wireless adapter properties.
1.DHCP:- In DHCP method you dont have to enter any settings on the wireless adapter. The wireless network which you are connecting will automatically assign an IP Address to you. But to use DHCP it must be supported by your wireless network.
2. Manual entry of settings in wireless adapter properties. This method is mostly used over wireless Connection in small networks connecting 2-200 computers. In this method you have to obtain the following information from your connection provider.
IP address (Its format is "xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx")
Default gateway address (very important)
Primary and secondary DNS (If not given then you can use "188.8.131.52" as primary DNS and "184.108.40.206" as Secondary DNS...thats free DNS service from google and its very fast)
To enter these settings you have to rightclick the Wireless Adapter>> and select properties>>Then double click the Internet Protocol version 4(TCP/IPv4) and enter these settings. In many cases when you are using proxy server then you have yo use proxy settings also in your browser.. Hope this will help....Cheers..:)
PUTwhere pop is. mail.cox.net on the first line and on the next line smtp put mail.cox.net That it all you do is put mail. And your prvider. your user name you use to get online an pass. i will see if i can find a print.
First, you ned to login into your router (check the manuals for this, Netgear has this printed behind the router near Serial no. etc). Enable DHCP settings, allocate IP-address range say 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.0.5 (enough for 5 computers connecting via this router). Next, configure each computer to accept new IP-address from router by enabling DHCP. The settings on a Windows XP Professional Desktop: Need administrator access to your desktop, right-click on Network icon, Internet Protocol TCP/IP Properties, click on Properties button, then select Advanced properties, you can set DHCP from here.
you will have to reset your router and or modem up. as they need input for isp name password etc this could be the main problem also you can try Start/control panel/network connections/right click/properties/ local area/general right click (internet protocol tcp/ip) go to properties this should be set at obtain ip address automatically. you could try setting it manually
This is not the manufacturer's site, but i will try to help.
Is it your own network?
You need to make sure that the network is not protected, or you'll need the password.
Go to Start>Control Panel on your computer
Then go to Network Connections
There should be an icon for your wireless connection.
Right-click -> select Properties In the selectbox select 'Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)' Click Properties Check if 'Obtain an IP-address automatically' and 'Obtain DNS-server' are selected If they were not, Press <Ok> two times and try to connect to the wireless network again.
Can you also tell what IP-address you get? Find it by going to Start > Run Type 'cmd' without the quotation marks and press <Ok> you get a black command box type 'ipconfig', again without the quotation marks and press <Enter> Please tell me the IP-address it tells you...
