Solved: My ADSL modem is not giving an IP address

Q: Solved: My ADSL modem is not giving an IP address

Hi everyone, having a frustrating night getting my ADSL2+ connection going. Just got a Billion 7402G modem/router delivered and I am trying to get it working on an XP PC.

My NIC card works fine, and has the latest drivers. I plug in the modem as described in the manual, and follow all configuration instructions including - Select the Obtain an IP address automatically and the Obtain DNS server address automatically radio buttons.

But I am not being issued an IP address. The manual says this should just be automatic and has no recourse if it is not.

I set an IP address manually within the range of the router, and was able to logon to the modem via the webgui. But no internet access.
Billion support tells me "You should only need to login to router with default settings, navigate to Quick Start page, enter your ISP login details & apply, router should then connect, when finished save config to flash. Nothing else should be required, computer should automatically connect. Ensure that software firewalls aren't blocking access."

OK, so to do this, I need to put in the manual IP address... why is the manual saying to set my LAN connection to obtain IP and DNS setting automatically,and why is this not working for me? Anyway I change the settings to manual and reboot, try the suggestion. All firewalls are disabled.

I have now manually entered an IP address for my PC that allows me to login to the router. Without doing this I cannot even get to this setup page so that is why I ask why I have had to figure out to enter an IP address instead of selecting the "Obtain IP Address and DNS Server automatically" as stated in the Billion PDF manual. So now I have logged in to the router, and have entered my credentials. I had a "successful" window pop up, and a notice baloon saying "A new device is now available on your network."
It says the PPPoE Connection is established, and there is a section that says a ping to google is successful. But I have no internet access.

OK, reconnected everything - power, telephone line... left LAN cable unplugged and rebooted computer. Turned on modem waited until all lights stay lit. Connected LAN cable, and it still just hangs on aquiring network address, I'm not getting issued an IP address.

OK so I tried plugging the LAN cable from the laptop to the Billion and it is the exact same problem. No IP address being issued. If I manually set an IP address, I can login to the router but not connect to the internet.

Interestly this also happend with wireless. I found my wireless network in the list of available networks when I put my wireless card back in my laptop. So I tried to connect and I could connect to router, but was not issued an IP address. I could login to the modem.

Latest firmware installed.

So I ended up spending all night on trying to just get an IP address assigned to my PC from the Billion 7402G modem/router. Going into the properties of my Local Area Connection, selecting TCP/IP properties and setting "Obtain IP & DNS Servers automatically" is the 3rd step of the instruction manual and I cannot get past it. Nowhere in these instructions does it say to manually assign an IP address so if I had not have figured this out for myself then I would not have even seen the router setup page. It is not a defective NIC as I have attemped to connect via 2 different PC's.

I know the following should be true
- The router should act as a DHCP server, issuing IP addresses. I have confirmed the the DHCP setting is turned on to DHCP Server.
- If I manually eneter IP address and manage to be able get into the router setup page and enter my username and password for my ISP in the Quick Setup Page, I should then have internet access.

6 hours of staring at "aquiring network address" is getting me down - any advice greatly appreciated. I have created a "support ticket" with Billion - www.billion.com.au/helpd...b3RtYWlsLmNvbQ==
Any advice? Thought I would give Tech_Support_Guy a shot. Cheers.

I'm trying to get Ubuntu 8.04 online and to do this I need to know the private IP address of my modem, which is an NEC NTA-3110 ADSL.

The problem is that my network card is detecting a private IP address automatically (169.x.x.x) and this is not quite in the range that I would expect. Normally it is in the 192.168.x.x range. The reason it is doing this is because the router is not offering any private IP addresses.

I've googled extensively. I know this information should be in the documentation or the manual, but the ISP gave me neither. I know I should ask the ISP but they won't have anything to do with Linux. They just tell you to run the Windows set up disk.

If anyone could offer any help on this, I'd appreciate it very much.

A:Comcast modem sb5100 giving private IP address.

Is the address 169.254.0.x ?

A view of your IP address (ipcoinfig /all) will help. You might try restarting your modem, or find out if you're getting a dynamic or static address from your ISP.

You could also have a router/modem combo device. Just realized that you posted the model. Its not a combo device.

More information will be needed to actually help you.

One last thing is to make sure that your ISP can contact your modem. You will have to call them to test the connection.

Hi, my friend is in Japan, and he's signed up for NTT's ADSL service, They say he can 'rent' a modem, but he would need to get a router too if he wishes to use more computers. However he doesn't want a 'multi-box' solution, he wants it in 1 box (like in other countries), a combination ADSL Router/Modem with Wifi. However, he cannot buy them in a few computer stores he has visited. I am visiting him soon, and we're trying to understand if I bring over an ADSL router, if that would work.. I know about the power limitations, but that aside, can it work?

ps. Thinking of bringing something like the following models ( I will purchase once I know for sure )...
Netgear DG834GT 108Mbps Wireless ADSL Modem
Belkin ADSL Modem with Built-in 125g Wireless Router
Linksys by Cisco WAG54GS Wireless-G ADSL Modem Router

pps. I see a lot of modems listed on Amazon with ADSL2, I don't think they have ADSL2 in Japan (according to wikipedia), would ADSL2 modem work with ADSL.?

MANY MANY Thanks if anyone can answer this

I've currently got a 512kb/s adsl connection but will be moving to a faster 1mb/s connection in next 2 months.In meantime I need to get my other PC to share same connection. So must be wireless. As I understand it a 4 port wireless adsl router means that basically you have an adsl modem that not only controls upload/download link to the internet but lets u plug in 4 PC's hardwired into modem? and then as well as that connect wirelessly?

I'm only looking to connect two PC's to it...one hardwired in and the other wireless equipped with a USB wireless stick.

Would this be suitable?


A:Sharing internet using ADSL. Which router/adsl modem to buy?

I suppose this is what your ISP is trying to sell you..

It will probably work, but I would recommend a product from a brand manufacturer who will actually release patches and support you after two years.

Look for similar products from Linksys, 3Com, SMC, D-Link, Netgear

I am staying at my brother's house right now. They have Embarq DSL and have a EQ-660R ADSL Router (that's what they call it. I wouldn't call it a router). On a typical day, you can expect it to loose internet connectivity multiple times per hour. It will usually find a signal and reconnect within a couple of minutes. I have never had DSL, only cable. Is this something that is typical with DSL, or is it probably something wrong with the modem/router. I have noticed this modem on ebay for only a couple of bucks. Would it be worth picking one up, or is this something he is going to have to deal with as long as he has DSL? Thanks for the help.

I am running a laptop with Windows XP PRofessional SP2 and an internal Intel Pro Wireless network card. The network is provided by a Belkin ADSL router/modem running 802.11g and serving a network of up to three machines at a time.

I have recently been forced to re-install the machine from scratch and, ever since, I am getting strange problems with the modem. When I first switch on, everything is fine and I can use the Internet normally for as long as I want. However, if I run an application that doesn't directly require an Internet connection (Word, Excel, Visual studio, any game etc) and subsequently try to access the Internet, the modem connection has gone and only a power cycle of the unit will get it back. The Router continues to work normally (share files, see other machines on the network, access the router etc).

Anyone got any idea what might be happening here? Before the re-installation the system was rock solid and I used to get modem problems only once every few months!

This is a friend's computer, Dell Dimension desktop 3.0 GHz, Win XP (Home). He can not connect to the internet. He has a Linksys ADSL 2 modem, and when connected through ethernet cable, the DSL light is on, but packets sent or received are in the hundreds, and he can not connect to any site. He is with France Telecom, and they checked the line, which is fine.

I had a spare modem (Zyxel P-660 ME) provided by Sunrise (in Switzerland), which I tried to connect to his computer. No success. When I type, it asks for three things, username, user password, and system password. The first two we know, but the third? Tried 1234 (the default password for the modem). Did not work. France telecom helpline also did not know what system password was required.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. I can post ipconfig /all, and any other information needed through my computer.

Hi Guys,

I wonder if anyone can give me some advice please.

I have just had ADSL broadband enabled at our new home but the modem supplied by the provider is a USB modem. Heres the rub, I do not wish to have to trail cable throughout the house to use the internet, The only phone point is in one room, the main desktop is in another, and the laptop wherever.

Is it possible, if I purchase a wireless modem, to set it up in one room unconnected to a computer and access the internet wirelessly from the desktop pc and the laptop from whichever room they are in?
I presume initially that I would have to use the laptop to set-up, but would I then be able to remove the laptop and still have the connection?

I already have a Belkin wireless router from our previous home but there is no USB port on it and I cannot locate any means to convert from USB to RJ45, presumably because of the power requirements of USB.

Anyone any clues on this?

Any help/advice greatly appreciated

I'm trying to use a router/modem to be only a router...
I'm using Siemens SL2-141 which has an ADSL input but im connected to a cable input modem which is - Thompson TCM425.
I want to use the Siemenss wireless option but i cant seem to make it work!

what i've done so far:
My Thompson TCM425 is connected to the internet via MPLS (direct connection, no need for a VPN dialer), I connected it into the LAN2 in the Siemens router (Ethernet connector). I connected the Siemens router LAN1 to the computer (Intel Network card - Ethernet connector).

Thats for the wires.

on the computer -
LAN is the intel network card which is connected to the LAN2 in the router.
Wireless Network connection - I've installed a USB wireless device on the computer to try and connect to the wireless router. I set the IP's manually as shown in the IPCONFIG.(maybe my manualy config is wrong?)

on the router -
I've changed the advanced configuration and disabled the ADSL option
Also, I turned off the DHCP.
This is sposed to make the device a router alone.
The strange thing is that when i use the LAN (Intel card on the computer) I have access to the net but when i try to connect via wireless i get 'Limited or no connectivity', I've done a check and seems like the wireless connection wont get an IP and so I can't access the net via wireless.

Hello all,
I recently purchased a Belkin N Wireless Modem Router with a single ADSL input and 4xRJ45 outputs. I have an old Belkin 54g Router at the moment and wanted to upgrade. Unfortunately when the item arrived I discovered that I had made a mistake as the router was for ADSL and not the Virgin cable modem. Before returning the item I would like to know if it is possible to convvert the RJ45 lead output from the cable mobem to the ADSL input of the router. I've had a look on forums and a lot of the answers seem to be way more complex but without answering this question.
Thanks in advance for any replies.

First post here. I have a rather peculiar issue.
When I plug my computer to my ADSL modem, I can access the internet with no problems; however, when I plug in my wireless router to the modem, some websites do not load (my bank's website, some government sites, my work's citrix interface, etc). As soon as I unplug my router and plug directly to the modem, the websites are accessible again.
Now, I have three desktops, two of these connected via wireless, one hard wired. All of them present the same problem when the router is plugged. My laptop has no problems connecting to any website, even when connected to the router via wireless or hard wired.

hi guys,

i previously made a thread about buying a wirless router (http://forums.techguy.org/networking/916610-connecting-usb-only-adsl-modem.html). From that thread i have decided that im going to buy a router with intergrated adsl modem. i made this thread because i dont want to go through the hassle of returning a item bought of the internet. I had my eye on this router: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Belkin-Wire...ef=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1271498847&sr=1-3-spell. Firstly i wanted someone to check that this is a wirless router with intergrated adsl modem.

I also wanted to know how i will have to set this router up. do throw away my adsl modem that i have now? or i will i need to keep that connected? Would i need to insert my modem into that router or will i just need that all in one wireless router connected to my pc and thats it?

Im very confused about my broadband. i dont know whether it is dial-up or adsl. i know for a fact that i am using the speedtouch 330 adsl usb PPP modem, but under Network connection orange broadband is listed under Dial-up (i will try and post pictures to help explain what i mean). and also i have to use software to connect to the internet, and its programmed to connect to the internet by using the speedtouch 330 adsl usb PPP modem. When the router arrives will i be able to change this so that it connect using the new router?

Any help would be appreciated. i will try and upload images to help explain what im talking about.

A:Connect a Wireless Modem to ADSL modem for Wifi

The "nokia siemens SL2_141" is a modem/wireless router combo; I assume that "A Wireless Modem of MTS" is also a modem/wireless router combo.

If my assumption is correct you can use the Nokia as an ethernet switch and wireless access point ...

JohnWill's procedure (Aug. 30, 2008) for configuring a secondary router as a switch and, optionally, wireless access point follows.

Connecting two (or more) 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 through, I'd assign the secondary router as it's IP address, 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.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If ther... Read more

Hi, I have an old dial up account with some important email addresses which I don't want to lose. Currently I have them configured to download into Outlook via my broadband service provider on an Orange Livebox, connected by usb. So far so good.

I hooked back into the router restarted the modem, all lights came on, started the router and no IP address.

Okay first I very much doubt that the modem cares whether you are using Vista or not, so that's something to disregard.

Is the hardware a "Speedtouch 330 Modem" from the UK ? Googling indicates this hardware is being provided by an ISP ?

If so, your best source of information is the ISP. Check to see if they have configuration instructions on-line, or call Tech Support for assistance.

I'd guess that you have some sort of USB driver conflict. It's not uncommon to have issues if you get a bunch of USB devices all connected. Networking seems especially prone to have issues with other USB devices...

Please help me. I have a Prolink ADSL USB modem installed. It is working okay. I downloaded a free registry cleaner and in the process deleted the registry values of my modem. It was in the HKey Local Machine and goes something like this.: DSLAGENTEXE and DSLSTSTEXE. Also, when I tried to uninstall my modem so that I can re-install it, it refuses to uninstall saying missing .dll and that I have no administration rights though I am the only user. Please help me. Thanks!

A:Uninstalling ADSL Modem


Which Operating System are you using? XP or Vista for example.

Can you give me the exact model of the modem? Preferably from a sticker.

In future, when uninstalling use Revo uninstaller from http://www.revouninstaller.com

When prompted for the Removal Type choose Advanced.

The program is safe, sets a System Restore point first (assuming you haven't disabled it), I use it all the time both for myself and for my customers.

Assuming the program still appears in Add / Remove Programs or Program and Features - Revo WILL be able to remove it regardless of whether the built in uninstaller works or not. Just continue with the Revo bit after the built-in uninstaller fails.

A:ADSL PCI Modem Drivers

Welcome to Seven Forums: Not a very user friendly support page. I can for see a couple of problems one being a modem using 32 bit drivers, the other locating this particular manufacturers driver downloads. So lets try this, does it show up in your device manager? If so right click on it>then properties>details tab>drop down menu>select hardware id>Copy and Paste the hardware id string. We might get lucky and find another manufacture using the same chip that might have drivers for it. Oh also please take the time ot go to user CP (top of page) scroll down to edit system specs and fill them in. Thanks Fabe

As far as I am aware, you can use any of the usb sockets as, to my knowledge, they will all give the same output. (somebody will, no doubt, correct me if I am wrong).

I have a Zhone 6211-I3-200 ADSL Bridge/Modem hooked up to my PC through an Ethernet cable. My internet was working fine and I tried to access the web-based setup page of the modem to open some ports on the built in firewall. It asked for the user name and password which was something other then the default admin admin combo as stated in the PDF manual. So I attempted to do a hard reset and restore the modem to its factory setting. After holding the reset button for approx. 30 seconds it did its little reset cycle only now not only can I not connect to the internet, I cant even connect to the modem. I cant access the log in screen for the modem, I cant even ping the modem from the PC. I double and triple checked the cables and wires, the auto-configure settings in the network connections, and tried using the windows connection repair function which says it cant renew my IP address. I've reset the modem again several times, and unplugged it to clear any cache memory it may have and still nothing. I've ran out of ideas and everything that usually works to fix internet issues has failed. Is there anything that I can try before I call the local service company? Thanks in advance.

A:ADSL Modem Issue

I suspect the you've erased your connection parameters, and the only way to restore them will be to contact your ISP at this point. Obviously, if the name/password were not the defaults, they probably wanted to restrict users from tinkering with the modem settings.

Dynamode USB ADSL Modem connected to a new PC with XP Sp2.
Works fine, logs onto internet but when I switch off the PC then on again, it sometimes doesn't connect to the Internet. The modem's ADSL light is on but there's no network connection.
If I remove the modem's USB cable from the PC then plug it into another USB port, it sometimes works.
There's no conflict or problems in the Device Manager.

Any help appreciated!

Hi everyone
i hope this problem is in the right forum. Apologies to everybody this makes no sense to and for my ignorance regarding this. At the moment i connect to the internet via freeserve/wanadoo with the ADSL broadband modem (a Thompson speedtouch) that they provided. This has now failed. What i would like to know is if i went and installed a different ADSL modem bought from any PC shop would i still be able to access the internet via freeserve/wanadoo. The reason i ask this is that when i spoke to their customer services they said i had to use a modem supplied by them. I thought all they had done was supply an ADSL modem free to encourage me to use them as an ISP. They now seem to be claiming that i have to have to use the modem they supply which no doubt they can resupply at a handsome fee. Does anybody out there know any different. Can i use any modem to access the net using freeserve/wanadoo's software or do i have to use theirs. Thanks in advance for any answers

A:ADSL modem query

there is a hi propability this would work, IF ...
you had all the config info AND
you did not require help/support from the ISP.

there are companies that repackage OEM hardware with new docs and
cases with their logos, but the real guts are brand name hardware.

Hi all,

I use the ADSL technology for having the Internet. For that, I have a wireless N ADSL2+ modem router model TD-W8151N that I connect it wirelessly by my laptop and smartphone and etc.

I've heard that there is some Windows or smartphone app that can crack my modem and uses my traffic! My traffic volume finishes very soon.
My modem configuration is as normal and is fine but I don't know what is that method those crackers use to break the security of it and my traffic is being stolen still!

Is there any way to block the way crackers crack my modem? If yes, how please?
