No IP Address from Modem to WBR-2310 router

Q: No IP Address from Modem to WBR-2310 router

I've had a great network for years but then my DI-624 died and I replaced it with a D-Link WBR-2310. It conected to the PC just fine and using DHCP it assigns IP's to the compters. The problem is that the Comcast modem will not give the the WAN an IP or DNS. When I check status the LAN has Host, IP and Gateway. When I check status on the WAN these are blank. Thus, I can't get on the internet using the network. I used the same cables I had with the DI-624 if that makes any difference? So, the network works and the router gives IPs but the WAN has nothing coming in. Help?

Hey everyone.

I've ran into a problem that I can't quite figure out. My internet connection shows 'no internet access' even though my ISP shows the connection is coming into the house just fine. I usually use a router (NetGear-WNR3500U) but I right now I have the Ethernet connection plugged directly into my PC. I tried directly plugging into my laptop and the internet works just fine. So I know the problem resides in the PC.

Some troubleshooting things I have tried.
-Power cycled my modem, router and PC.
-Repinged my connection from my ISP(Comcast Xfinity)
-Used the reset option on the router and the modem
-I was walked through the internet options needed with the tech support from my ISP to make sure DHCP was enabled and every other setting was correct, and he cleared me that all settings were correct.
-Tried ipconfig commands to /renew and /release my IP
When I tried ipconfig /renew I get the error 'An error occurred while renewing interface Local Area Connection : unable to contact your DHCP server'

-Restored my PC to a restore point where the Internet was working

All of these options did not work.

What I think the problem is and I am not sure how to fix it, when I run the ipconfig /all command my Auto configuration IPv4 Address shows 169.254.112.76 which I was told is a router IP address even though I am plugged directly from the modem to my PC with an Ethernet cord. So I think that's my problem? But I am not sure.

I'd be glad to prov... Read more

A:'No Internet Access' IP address shows router not the modem IP address

That would be your ISPs' address, the router would probably be 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 so, in the properties, advanced button for the ipv4 of your adapter, make sure both settings are on auto, and add the correct router address in the gateway box.

Assuming they are two separate units and not bridged.
When you ping, tracert or DDoS attack or what-have-you my IP address, who/what do you reach ?
Im understanding that a modem is just a media converter. It's got no IP address of its own.
But then Wikipedia states (under "cable modem"): "With respect to the OSI model of network design, a cable modem is both Physical Layer (Layer 1) device and a Data Link Layer (Layer 2) forwarder. As an IP addressable network node, cable modems support functionality at other layers...] ...The Network Layer (Layer 3) is implemented as an IP host in that it has its own IP address used by the network operator to maintain the device."
If it's not the modem's ip address, are they referring to TR-69..?
A scan of an ISP subnet (e.g NMAP) returns/reaches routers or modems?

Hello, I am currently trying to figure out how to hook up my Desktop computer to the internet. Recently got back my DSL. The computer is trying to get my IP address from my wireless router, rather than the modem itself. It is also showing 0.0.0.0 I have tried to use system restore to go back to when the computer was working properly, but system restore is not able to restore any points. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi all -
we were happily getting along with our RCN cable Motorola modem and DLink wireless 655 until the last couple of weeks. The internet would intermittently not be available, without warning. First couple of times we power cycled the modem and router, and it worked, but then stopped being available altogether. I got some support from RCN, the cable provider (they own the modem and it's old, so naturally that was my first thought). I now have a new modem and the situation is exactly the same.
The error message that I get is that the IP address for the network cannot be found.

I got internet access by bypassing the router, connecting the modem directly to my (Windows XP) PC, releasing and renewing the IP address, and power cycling the modem. However, the internet still intermittently shuts down, and of course turning off the computer necessitates the whole procedure again. And now we have no wireless.

SOooo - should we assume it's the router, and a new one would solve our problem? Of do we just need to reset the IP address of the router? Or has anyone heard of this and maybe has some light to shed...???
Many thanks

I got internet access by bypassing the router, connecting the modem directly to my (Windows XP) PC, releasing and renewing the IP address, and power cycling the modem.Click to expand...

Power cycling the modem is necessary when switching the device connected to it; after that there should be no need to power cycle it until the next switch.

However, the internet still intermittently shuts down,Click to expand...

Implies ISP, modem, cable or computer problem. If you have another Motorola modem you have LEDs that give a pretty good idea of what might be happening. And most modems have some LEDs. What are they telling you on the "shut downs"?

and of course turning off the computer necessitates the whole procedure again.Click to expand...

Shouldn't have to do anything but power up the computer. Can you try another computer? If the modem has a USB port can you try a USB connection?

Ok, firstly you need to access the administrator settings. This is generally done by typing in 192.168.1.0 or 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.0 or 192.168.0.1 depending on the router and its settings (try them all!)! Type in the passwords if you have any and then simply go into the router and then find the correct setting.

I had difficulty before, posted and solved in this thread HERE. After that fix, all my wireless computers and devices found my network automatically when powered on. At some point, my daughter contracted a malware virus on her Dell, which eventually led to me having the hard drive removed and replaced, so I had to reinstall everything on her PC, including the wireless adapter. In so doing, I restarted the router a few times, and now the router has reverted back to its old behavior of not allowing my wireless computers and devices to connect to my wireless network automatically upon power-up. I called D-Link's support line, and tried to get them to tell me the settings that would allow for that automatic connecting, and I was told that I must just check the "Enable Auto Channel Scan" box. Well, I did that and it hasn't changed my situation: every time I try to use a wireless computer or device while my "main" PC is powered off, my wireless network can't be found, and I must restart the router. What I actually do is go to the router page, look at the wireless settings, and click "Save Settings". Sometimes the "Enable Auto Channel Scan" box is checked as I had it before, sometimes not; I've tried re-checking it, and I've tried leaving it unchecked, but either way I'll have the problem again tomorrow.

A:trouble again with D-Link WBR-2310 router

I can't read that screenshot, but from your description it sounds like the router is not operating properly.

Make sure you have the latest firmware update for it. Then reset it to factory default settings and reconfigure it.

Some people have trouble with the auto-channel feature, so it is not a bad idea to turn that off as D-Link suggested. If you don't know what channels other possibly interfering networks are using try channels 1, 6 and 11.

If, after a reset to factory defaults, the router continues to "forget" settings you have made and applied/saved, it's time for a router replacement.

Hey guys. I really hope my problem can be resolved here since its been going on for quite a long time.

Ok to start off I want to talk about the way my router is set up with my DSL modem. I have my ethernet cable going from my Primus DSL modem (I live in Canada BTW) directly into my DLINK Router. Even though it is a wireless router I have both of my computers wired. Since I used to have a wired-only router a few years back I just stuck with this set up. Im using the wireless connection for my PS3 and my PSP. I even tried using a wired connection for my PS3. Everything has been going great until a few weeks ago.

First I just want to say that my router has 5 inputs in the back (like most), 1 WAN and 4 LAN. The funny thing is that when I plug my modem into the WAN slot on my router I cant get anything to work! It was like that with all my other routers as well. Even a few years back when I used to have Sympatico DSL I could not plug my modem into the WAN slot. Instead the modem HAS TO be plugged into either of the 4 LAN slots. Now that we have Primus DSL and this new DLINK router the history repeats itself. You guys can look at the little attachment pic I made for reference. The funny thing is that when I first try to set up my DLINK router with the included CD it asked me to plug the modem into the WAN slot on the back of the router. When I did that the router detected the modem but it couldnt detect the internet connection, which is completely frustrating.

Hello everyone. I'm a newbie in this site and found a very interesting forum with regards to my situation. My router a DLink WBR 2310 works perfectly when I was still in PA with Comcast as my provider. Now, I am here in the Philippines with a DSL connection. WBR 2310 still works perfectly wired and wireless. After a few months, there was an ISP issues such that I have to keep on calling for internet connection issues and was resolved only temporarily. ISP said, it's their end that is having issues until they replaced my modem to a PROLINK (was using Speed Touch modem before, BTW). After replacing it to Prolink, I can only connect wirelessly for only about 5 minutes and that's it. I have to power cycle the router and still the same issue. I am currently connected hardwired.

Now, I cannot access my WBR 2310 (thru default 192.168.0.1). Ran ipconfig and have an invalid default gateway / IP address. I am planning to do what one of the moderators here (JohnWill) has advised one of our members but my problem is I cannot get in to my WBR 2310. I don't know if my router has gone bad or it's just a matter of how to get into the router in some other ways. BTW, I already tried a known good ethernet cable. Connection is okay when hooked up directly from the modem. Any help how to access my Dlink WBR 2310? Thanks.
 

A:Cannot access D Link WBR 2310 Router

Reset the router to factory defaults by holding the reset button down for 15 seconds with power on. The following procedure should get you a connection with any broadband modem that is configured to use DHCP for the router connection, such as cable modems, and many DSL modems. If you require PPPoE configuration for the DSL modem, that will have to be configured to match the ISP requirements.
Turn off everything, the modem, router, computer.
Connect the modem to the router's WAN/Internet port.
Connect the computer to one of the router's LAN/Network ports.
Turn on the modem, wait for a steady connect light.
Turn on the router, wait for two minutes.
Boot the computer.

When the computer is completely booted, let's see this.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.

Only my daughter's Dell Dimension 3000 has problems connecting to it, with its Dell Wireless 1450 Wireless adapter. It "finds" my wireless network and says "limited or no connectivity", and when I attempt to repair the connection it fails to renew the IP address. I've rebooted the router multiple times, alternating between using a security key and not. The other devices always connect; the Dell just won't (it has before, but it's always had issues). Should I just go buy a D-Link wireless adapter in the hope that it will be easier to match up with the router, or is there some way I can get this stupid Dell adapter to work?

I'm switching from AT&T U-verse to Comcast since comcast can offer speeds up to 5x faster.

As you might know At&T uses ethernet as incoming signal vs. Comcast that uses 75 ohm cable.

I need to buy a new modem and router to install the new Comcast service.

I have two questions:

1) What is better? the combo modem/router units (i.e. Motorola SBG6580) or buying a separate stand-alone modem Motorola 6141 modem + Netgear N750 wireless router)?

2) I do have one issue to overcome. I have one TV in my house that is wired for cable only. That is, it has a cable run going to it. It's too difficult for me to install an ethernet run to it, so I'm stuck having to use the cable run. Are there modem/routers that have a cable OUT so that i can feed this TV its hard-wired signal?

Thanks,

Info about my computer (should it be relevant) is below.

Short Story: I desired a new router/modem just to see if it would improve internet consistency. However, I ended up buying just a router. I have a modem and can link them up. Should I keep this setup, or switch back to my old Router/Modem combo, while looking for another Router/Modem?

Long Story:
My internet, for the most part, is fine. However, I still experience the occasional disconnect. My internet will go off for less than a minute about 5x a week. This is fine for browsing, but sucks for gaming. My ISP is AT&T, and I have 3 Mb max DSL. Years ago, it started having a bunch of disconnects after I tried an upgrade (6 Mb max) for a year. The techs came out about 6 times. As a result, I downgraded my service back and got an AT&T 2Wire Router/Modem combo out of the deal. I know people say this device sucks a lot, but it's been at least doing its job. General browsing is fine, gaming has the disconnect problem only sometimes, and there's only one device to think about.

However, I've recently started wondering if the quality of the modem was in fact affecting the consistency of the connection. The techs tried different modems when troubleshooting everything, but none were high quality.

So, I got my eye on this:

but why not try it for a week and see if it disconnects - that is what you are trying to fix

also you wont get a faster speed if the download is set to 3Mbps and all wireless modes B,G,N will be faster than 3Mbps anyway

How many devices do you have connected to the router and when you get the disconnect is it for all of them

it maybe a dns issue - but you would need to see if the new modem/router setup has resolved the issue anyway

Hey Guys. what i need is some help turning my modem/router combo into just a modem so i can use a different wireless router.
My problems with my current combo are that for gaming (pc xbox and ps3 primarily) i have huge connection problems that would all probably be solved with some simple port forwarding. the problem with that, is that my ISP disabled port forwarding and DMZs on the model modem/router thing we have. Networking is not my strong suit so this hasn't gone so well for me in attempts prior to this.

We have an Ambit cable modem/wireless router combo. there is no model number on the modem itself however in the setup page it lists "Cable Modem : DOCSIS 1.0/1.1/2.0 Compliant" which is looking like it may be a model U10C019.

also. inb4 wrong login: user/user. ISP changed admin pass and will not give it to me. i already spoke to them about this garbage.

new router i want to use is a Linksys wireless router. i already know how to do all the major setup on those. its just this ambit one is trash.

thanks for any help you can give me.
 

A:modem/router combo to just modem for use with new wireless router

Not much, if anything, we can do. To configure the modem/router into bridge (modem only) mode you have to login. If you don't have the login/password the only thing to do is reset it to factory default settings.

Two potential problems with doing that ...

a. They may have disabled that function also.

b. You have to know the settings needed to connect. (Usually not a problem with cable service.)

I don't believe that it matters which subnet the computer is in as long as it has an active connection and can reach the default gateway although it might have problems reaching other computers. If this is a home router and you are using the default settings then you shouldn't have to worry about subnets.

So I am updating my churches network and came to a setup I have never seen before. No one at my church knows anything about the setup except when they built the addition (about 5 years ago) they ran "a bunch of Cat5". They ran 3-8 jacks in every room. I have a closet full of about 50 cat5 cables of which only 16 actually have RJ45s on them and only 5 of which actually go to a computer. That stuff I was able to figure out. What perplexes me is the hardware setup.... I have seen modem to router to switch.

This install has a Comcast Modem with a built in 4 port router. 2 lines go to separate magic jack pro jacks. One is a straight cable to a wireless linksys router. The last is a straight cable to a 16 port switch. There is then a crossover cable from the wireless router to the switch as well. So on the switch port 15 goes direct to the modem and port 16 is a crossover to the router and back to the same modem..... I can figure out for the life of me why there is a loop going on here.

In either case the setup worked. So the duplicate line did not have an issue. I am so lost.
 

A:Modem to Router to Switch back to Modem, what....?

I would disconnect the cable going from the switch back to the modem/router combo. You're right. This loop is not proper. Loops should never exist on a switched network. I'm curious as to whether traffic is being forwarded around the network properly or if the switch being used has spanning tree support and might have shut down one of the ports wired up to the upstream network device.

Hope this isn't confusing but, my internet provider (my cable company) came in to set up a wireless modem/router when we upped our internet speed today. We have three desktop computers which are hard wired to our existing Linksys router which we have been using previously. Would it be in our best interest to turn off the wireless function of that router (it's hooked up to the new modem/wireless router so the hardwired computers can function since the new unit has no ports to plug in the desktop computers into). Our wireless devices are all 'connected' to the new modem/router (using its passphrase and SSID). Can the wireless capabilities of each interfere with each other? They are sitting right next to each other.
 

A:Solved: Internet provider wireless modem/router and my hard wired router

It's confusing to me, but can make two comments ...

a. If you are not using the wireless network of a router it's best to disable or turn off the wireless--saves electricity and should extend the life of the router.

b. Two wireless networks whose channel numbers are less than five from each other can interfere. In North America if possible use channels 1, 6 and 11 to guarantee non interference.

So here is my case:

SETUP:

Verizon's Westell 6100:
Modem/Router, provides 1 incoming address (provided by VZ) and provides 1 internal address (192.168.1.1).

Netgear Wireless Router WGT624 v4:
Wireless Router, accepts 192.168.1.1 and provides 10.0.0.X wired and wirelessly.

Problem:
Although Verizon's Router indicates that it is on Bridge mode, the damn thing isnt. I thought the main concept of bridging was to become practically invisible and automatically reroute all traffic to the next device, which is what I want.
I want to ultimately use the Netgear device to set all my rules and settings, instead, I have to do it on both.
For instance, Xbox Live is not working 100% properly. I can only play video games without being able to join specific games, or perform any in-game video/voice chat.

I have tried NATing the device. No luck.
I have also tried setting the Netgear device as a Wireless Base Station. Either way, I just would like to have my network ignore 1 device, and have the second one invisibly reroute all the access.

Is that possible? Could you please help?

Thanks to all!
 

A:Netgear Wireless Router and Westell Modem + Router = Routed Bridge failure

Well, since the "modem" is supplying a private IP address, it's obvious that it's not in bridge mode, that can only happen with a NAT layer, aka a router.

I don't know if this is possible, but this is what I want to do:
Have the dsl modem router and linksys voip connected together.
I want the voip router to assign dhcp and the dsl modem router to
be used to get internet access but not assign dhcp (I think)

This is why I want it:

I have 8 wireless linksys cam's configured through the voip router.
Setting the cam's to the modem router didn't work well because of
AT&T's firewall cannot be disabled, only modified to open ports. It's frustrating as when I opened the ports for the cam's, a consistant "an unknown error has occured". So I opted to just set up the cams on the linksys router as the cams are also linksys as well. Thus, figuring they would communicate better anyway.

This is my problem:

When I connect the dsl modem router to the
WAN port on the linksys router, the dsl modem assigns it
a fixed LAN ip. What I want is the linksys router to pull a WAN ip so I can log into my cam's remotely from my laptop at home.
No matter what I do, disable dhcp on linksys router, set linksys router on the dsl modem router to DMZ, set linksys router to bridge mode.....
nothing seems to work.

All I want to do is configure the linksys router so that when I go to my internet explorer on my laptop and type in "99.xxx.xxx.xx:1024 to connect to the cam's. But when I go to linksys router config. pages to see the status, the internet ip is 192.168.1.64 which is a LAN address assi... Read more

I have Qwest/CenturyLink DSL, and recently replaced the Actiontec M1000 modem which crapped out after 5 years of service. Replaced it with a Netgear DM111PSP v2 router/modem. Now I cannot get either of my two routers, the Linksys WRT54G or WRT160N V2 to broadcast wireless internet. I've spent the most time on the WRT160N. It will broadcast a wireless signal, but devices that attempt to connect to the internet time out while "obtaining IP address". BTW, I just happen to have two wireless routers on hand, I only need one to work.

I can get internet through the hard wire connection. I have the Netgear modem hooked up to the "internet" port of the WRT160N router, and the computer is connected to one of the four ethernet ports on the back of the router. I can access both router and modem setup pages using this setup. The Netgear modem is set up for DHCP server, PPPoA encapsulation, and gets its DNS address dynamically from the ISP. The WRT160N is also set up for automatic DHCP configuration. These are the settings given by running each set up wizard, and this has set me up for some DHCP conflicts.

I think that setting up a dual modem/router in transparent bridging mode (PPPoE) in theory turns off the DHCP, allowing the WRT160N to handle DHCP, but I have no luck even getting my hard-wired internet connection to work if I switch from PPPoA to PPPoE mode. Even if I cut the WRT160N out of the loop and connect the computer direct to the DM111PSP. No internet,... Read more

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together
From a John Will Post

http://library.techguy.org/wiki/Connecting_two_SOHO_broadband_routers_together

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address, 192.168.0.253 for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

Just switched over to AT&T DSL from Road Runner Cable Modem.

While I had the cable modem, I used a Linksys WRT54G wireless router that had my PC and laptops connected to it.

Since I switched to AT&T DSL, I have been using AT&T's all-in-one device, the Westell DSL modem/wireless router/firewall.

I've noticed that uPnP doesn't work as well on the Westell as it did on the Linksys. I also had to change some settings to get my VPN to connect to my company's network.

Which is better? Should I put the Westell in bridged mode, and reconnect my Linksys? Or keep it the way I have it running it though the all-in-one device?

Thanks in advance.

So recently I bought a Linksys E2500 Router so I could be able to use the Wii, along with 3 other desktops, 1 laptop, and 3 phones.

My ideal setup would be this:
Set the ADSL2+ Modem/Router to be just a modem (I know how to set the option for this)​Connect the Linksys Router to be what all the devices connect to wirelessly (this would serve as the DHCP server) ​

We have internet connectivity with a Westel Wirespeed router/modem that works just great; however, when we connect the Linksys router (connected according to instructions), we have no connection to the internet and we cannot even ping the Westel router modem. I've done a dozen or more of these in the last six months so I know the wires are connected correctly.

After forty minutes of my fighting this thing on my own, I spent another two hours and ten minutes on the phone talking to some Indian whom I had to ask over and over to repeat what he was saying. Finally, I gave up and hung up on the guy who was begging me for the third time in his poor enunciations not to give up. I'd had enough.

Are there any pointers anyone here can give me? I tried another Linksys router today, hammering away at the problem, trying every experimental setting I could think of and I didn't get anywhere with it either.
