Can you get a 192.xxx ip address connected into a modem?

Q: Can you get a 192.xxx ip address connected into a modem?

I'm trying to find the correct information. Hooking directly into a modem is it possible to get a 192.xxx. Now I mean a normal modem. Not a modem router combo or some wireless nonsense. A basic wall then modem into a computer connection. Rebooting the computer and power cycling the modem. Using DSL or cable. Is there any way a person would get a 192.xxx ip address or is the person just not being honest and hooked up into a router?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

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.

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.

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. The only problem is the dial up service provider periodically asks me to connect by logging on to their dial up connection to keep the accounts active. Until now, I've done this using a very old pc. However, my wife would like me to get rid of my antique P75, so I would really appreciate if someone could show me how to set up my Athlon 3000 machine with built in modem to use both connections, though not necessarily at the same time.

Hey Guys,

I woke up today and turned on the desktop computer and it has trouble connecting to the internet...and I didn't do anything out of the norm.

My house has 4 PC's (2xlaptops and 2xdesktops) and all are connected to a Netgear FVS318 router, which is connected to a Motorola Broadband modem.

I noticed that the network icon kept appearing and disappearing so I opened up "Network Connections" and observed the bizarre behavior. The Local Area Connection kept repeating -> Acquiring Network Address...Connected...Acquiring Network Address...Connected...Acquiring Network Address...Connected...etc.

I don't know what is wrong and would appreciate some assistance with this problem. Thankyou.

If it helps.
- I had to open up a few ports in my router the previous night to play an online game on one of my laptops. But that shouldn't affect my desktop.
- All of the other computers can access the internet through the router perfectly.
- I've tried making a new network connection. Didn't work.
- I've tried repairing the LAN network
- I tried to repair the 1394 connection but ti said the TCP/IP wasn't enabled and couldn't repair it.

Also, I've read about turning on a service called "Network Location Awareness" ... I don't know what it is but would that help my situation?

Thankyou for your time.

Ok, here is the situation. I have 2 laptops: (1) PC windows XP, (2) Apple Mac ibook os x 10.4. I just had a cable modem installed on the PC by time warner cable. The only way they could get the modem to work is by USB. I bought a Belkin wireles g router to hook up for my mac to connect wireless. The problem is I tried everything to get the router to work. The problem is that the modem runs by USB, I hooked up the ethernet cables and even bridged the two connections. I do have a ethernet and USB port on the PC. I even tried manually typing in the IP, subnet but no luck. I think there is a problem with getting the router and modem to sync up or either the router and computer to sync up.

Hi,

My laptop freezes at apparent random when my ADSL line is connected to the computer. The only way I can make sure that it won't freeze and need a reboot is to unplug the modem. I don't actually have to be online for the computer to freeze if the modem is connected. This started when I switched Internet providers and began using an ADSL connection.

My ISP says there's nothing wrong with the line or the connection and that it must be a problem on my computer's end. The problem went away for the most part when I downloaded Kazaa... which of course did other nasty things to my computer and so I finally (I think) have totally gotten rid of it. However, now that everything Kazaa-related is gone, the freezing has started again.

Iíd very much appreciate any advice any of you can offer!

Best,

Andrea
 

A:PC freezing when modem connected

Kazaa has a tendency to leave all the spyware/adware crap it installed after being uninstalled unless you have run Spyware/Adware removal tools like Spybot and Adaware.

It would strongly help if you posted what laptop and what O/S you are running. You should make sure you have the latest drivers for your laptop and for the modem/ADSL software.

Actually, that IPCONFIG shows that you didn't get a connection.

This keeps happening after long periods of the machine being powered off. I will boot the machine and the network connection icon will tell me there is No Internet, but I can still connect to the modem. I've been just rebooting the machine to get internet again. It hasn't failed to reconnect on reboot yet /knock on wood.

Now I know this has been partially discussed for wireless connections in other threads but this is not the same issue. The reason I say this is this DSL modem has two wireless connections on it as well as my machine which is wired. If I boot my machine and get the no internet alert it kicks the two wireless machines off the internet as well.

I'm using Windows 7 x64 and no this is not a browser issue. The network connection icon on the task bar is producing the no internet warning before loading a browser. I have both Firefox and IE 8 on this O/S.

Any ideas?

Hi:Ok not a lot to go on here,but,let's give it a shot.
For starters:
Here is a basic tutorial on setting up a broadband connection:
Tips on setting up broadband connection, courtesy of Johnwill

You don't need any setup disk to configure a broadband 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.You might want to go to the d-link site I provided below and print out the instructions for your specific router.
• 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 (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

Hi,

My laptop freezes at apparent random when my ADSL line is connected. It doesnít matter if Iím online or not. This has been happening for the past four months. It started when I switched Internet providers and began using an ADSL connection.

It hasnít increased or decreased in frequency since it began. The freeze generally happens within the first 10 minutes Iím on the computer (generally online), though it can happen within the first 5 seconds or hold off for as much as 3 hours. I have to manually turn off and restart the computer when it happens.

When I initially called the Internet provider (four months ago) several technicians thought it was a virus. So, I bought a Norton Antivirus subscription, but it doesnít catch anything when the DSL line isnít connected, and it takes too long to scan the whole system with the DSL line

A couple other things about the freezing are 1) once it freezes and I turn the computer back on, the freezing often (but not always) begins to happen more quickly and 2) even if Iíve recently saved work in Microsoft Word, I often lose my most recent 45 minutes (Iím guessing -- I donít do much work in Word with the ADSL line attached anymore) of work.
connected without freezing. They say if itís not a virus, they donít know what it is.

Iíd very much appreciate any advice any of you can offer!

Best,

A:sluggish pc when modem connected

Althoughyou don't say, can we assume this is an internal PCI dial-up modem?

The first thing to do would be to renew the modem driver software, it could be as simple as a corrupt driver file. An internal PCI modem (and most external USB modems) rely 100% on the CPU to perform every operation, so if anything goes awry with the driver software problems can occur.

Next problem I kept getting disconnected all the time so I checked for updated drivers and installed them last night.

Ah this helped for now I can connect to the ISP now without problems most of the time.

BUT after a few minutes I get disconnected. The computer shows I am connected but if I pick up the phone I have a dial tone and can't connect to any web pages so I can't be connected.

The pc shows I am connected and the only way I can reconnect is to right click on the icons by the clock and click disconnect.

I am using a US Robotic V92 Fax win int modem, win 98 SE and other than this problem everything else works great.

Now if any of you know how to solve hardware problems I'd love to have your knowledge for I hate hardware, nothing ever works like it is suppose to.

Well thats not a typical error message so its hard to say; you'll need to get the exact message, the modem model number, and Windows version.

Hi gurus,

Ok, first of all, I know NOTHING about networking. I just got a cable internet connection installed at my house yesterday. I bought a Motorola Surfboard SB4100 cable modem and the tech came out and installed an ethernet card and I got the connection up and running last night with very little effort.

I want to share the connection so my girlfriend and I can be online at the same time. So I went out and bought a D-Link DI-704P router/firewall and another ethernet card for her pc.

Now, here come my questions. The cable provider won't offer any support on how to set up my network. How hard is it? I haven't read the documentation with the router yet, but I'm hoping it will be easy enough for my pee brain to comprehend.

Also, the cable technician told me that I would have to purchase another dynamic IP address (for $8.00/month) to have both computers connected at the same time. Is this true? I thought that a router would dynamically assign addresses to all the pcs on the network and handle all the communications with the cable modem.

Lastly... with the firewall capability built into the router, is it useful, necessary or stupid to also include firewall software such as ZoneAlarmPro? Again, I know nothing about networking, so I hope that's not a stupid question.

Thanks for all your help!

A:USB connected modem not recognized!

It sounds like the modem is installed correctly, but perhaps what you have to do is check all of your internet settings. If you don't know your internet settings you should be able to obtain a copy of the settings from your ISP.
It might be a simple problem that you have entered in an invalid proxy server name, or maybe you haven't entered one at all when you may happen to need one.
Also check your TCP/IP settings.
Not all ISP's require that you have a proxy server, or DNS entries, but some IPS's won't let you go anywhere without them.
One thing to make sure is that in your internet settings make sure that the web browser knows where to look for the connection, so just check that too.

Hope that helps, if not please add as much relevent information as you can.

They all work fine, however, when I connect my pc to the switch, I get no ip address. No matter what I do - forcing static ip addresses, etc, I can't get it to connect. When I take the direct feed from the router back out of the switch and connect it to the pc directly, all is well again.
Does anyone know why this is happening and if so, how to fix it? I'm truly at a loss! Help!

What is the IP address of my pc when it is connected through a router?

Is it the default ip address assigned by the router?

For example I am using a linksys. The router is setup as a dchp so it will assign the pc a ip address of 192.168.1.100 or something similar to that.

Or is the ip address the one assigned from my service provider?

If I want people to connect to my pc which ip address do I give them?
 

A:IP Address of PC when connected through a router

The IP address of your router is the IP address that is given by your ISP, the IP address of your computer will be what ever your router gives it on the LAN (which may well be 192.168.1.XXX). How do you mean "connect" into your computer?

You can setup an FTP server if you want to share files, but you will need to assign port forwarding, so that any FTP requests that come into your router (Using the IP address given by your ISP) get forwarded to your computer (under the 192.168.1.xxx address).

So ideally it would be great if you could say what you mean by connect, thanks!

Also, when I plug the modem back in and it starts trying to repair the network connection it says it can't, however a few minutes later I am connected?

Likewise if I use the diagnostic link on the IE7 'page can't be found' page it used to say something about a 'winsock' problem. I have since run 'winsock fix' and it now just says contact XP tech support.

Once all this is over and done with everything seems to return to normal, hence me being able to post this, but it is a pain in the backside,

For some reason, i cannot use my dial up because everytime a try create the connection, it says, modem not connected.

How do I connect the internal modem so the computer recognizes it. It doesn't show up in phones or modems.

My friend has cable speed w/ Roadrunner. The cable modem is a Toshiba brand that has ethernet and usb interface. Can I use each to a different computer ? One for ethernet and the other to a USB? Somehow, I dont think it's possible cuz the ISP would detect 2 MAC address.

I'm just wondering before I get there whether I should get a router and another ethernet card.

thanks
 

A:Is this possible w/ 2 computers connected to a cable modem?

You could just use Internet Connection sharing, you would still need a net card for the second computer, and you would have to network the 2, but it would be pretty easy to set up. And no. you cant use both interfaces on the cable modem at the same time. A router would be your best long term solution

Hey There,

My brother just wiped his computer and did a clean install of Windows XP Pro. version 5.1. He's on Service Pack 1, which we will remedy once we can get the internet working. (family IT support over the phone while I'm stuck at work is a pain in my butt, incidentally, but I'm sure you don't care.)

Basically, he connects to the internet through a wireless router. The computer recognizes his ethernet card, recognizes the connection, and even is showing a decent signal strength. He has sent 40-something packets and received none. When he opens his web browser, however, he cannot connect to any websites. (I didn't have him try anything else).

His card is enabled, and his TCP/IP settings are to obtain everything (IP and DNS) automatically.

I had him use ipconfig to release and renew his connections. During the renew process, his attempt to connect to the DHCP server timed out.

I'm all out of ideas, but I know I'm missing something (darn Friday mornings).

Let me know what you think,
Thanks,
Mike

A:wireless modem connected, but not recognized

I have seen this happen when a network key/passcode is typed incorrectly. Sometimes it will still connect to the router, but you won't be able to access the internet.

Is there any security enabled on his router?

I have several computers running off from a wireless modem and they are running fine. I hooked up one by Ethernet and was working fine and just stopped working for browsing. I have hooked other computer into the ethernet and it worked. I can ping the modem, IP Address but can't ping websites. I have uninstalled Internet Explorer and looked through several options for reseting DNS and IP but can't get anything to work. I don't have a firewall running. Just can't figure out what it is. Does anyone have any more suggestions?

I have looked up many things about my issue and have not found any solutions to it. My internet disconnects at seemingly random times for a random amount of time. Sometimes for 5 seconds, sometimes for 30 minutes or more. On my computer, it shows the normal wifi bars and that I am connected to my router, but it has an exclamation on it, meaning it isn't connected to the internet. When I look at my modem, however, it says I am connected to the internet. The same thing happens with all of my other devices.

I know I do not have any issues with my router or modem because I have replaced both of those (I had pretty old slow ones previously, so this was an excuse to get new ones). Replacing them did nothing to stop the issue.
I have Charter internet and they do not see any issues with them sending out a signal (but this is when my internet works perfectly fine, and I never get a hold of them when my internet is down). I also just have the in-wall female output for the cable, and have a male-male cable to connect my modem to it. I have replaced that also with no results.

I am wondering what my issue could be and how to fix it. Thanks

Hi,

My modem is working perfectly, i'm on my laptop and the connection is Strong,Excellent. I try to go to my computer, i turned it on, and i couldn't see the little computer (internet)icon in the corner, i went to Control Panel> Network Connections & i couldn't see nothing there either! It's like someone completely deleted it..
is this a virus? I also ran a computer scan and there were 0 threats. This just happened all of a sudden when i turned it on.. i tried everything..restarting it, opening a new connection ( but when i did that, it said 'Hardware not found or cannot find network' or something like that ). Please help as soon as possible.. thanks to all.

Hey,
We've had DSL for a few years, never had a problem. Recently got a stock NEC powermate, 2.6 with XP and hooked it up to our dsl (D-Link DSL-502T and D-link DSL-302G) modem via ethernet (the modem stores the user id, etc and the connections always on). It worked, for about an hour, and then come up with the famous "the page cannot be displayed". Thing is, it sometimes works, maybe for a minute, maybe for an hour, but always eventually drops out again. We've tried plugging the lead into our other computers, with no probs at all. Regardless of if it can find the page or not, it will always connect to the modem via 10.1.1.1 in the url. I've wiped all the spyware, cleaned out all the temp files etc., flushed the dns, used another modem, reinstalled the drivers, connected via usb instead of ethernet, changed cables, lowered security, raised security, deactivated firewalls, checked LAN and internet settings, with no effect. What gets me is that it sometimes goes fine, and then minutes later cant display the same sites. Restarting sometimes helps, sometimes doesn't. FTP uploads don't go very far because every few minutes it comes up with 'can't find FTP server' or similar. Any ideas?

A:DSL drops out randomly, but always connected to modem

have your ISP perform a line check for noise and signal.

It appears i can connect my laptop to the internet ok but cannot read any page from any browser.
I normally use Firefox as my primary, as well as IE & Maxthon.
My modem appears to be working fine, all lights on as they should be, i get my usual on screen message "speedtouch modem now connected at 2.2mps" or whatever, but then cannot get any page to open with any browser!
I haven't changed ay connection settings, or firewall etc.. Earlier in the day everything was fine & i'd been connected & surfing for hours!

Many thanks in advance for any help!
 

A:Modem connected, no browser works though!

Could literally be anything, to firewall, to proxy settings, to corrupt winsock, need more info really.

If you're running WinXP, then you could always try a quick fix and rewind the system back a couple of days using system restore (start>programs>accessories>system tools>system restore>....

hi i've been at trying to fix this since 8am and am having no luck

i reformatted my laptop (toshiba sat l35, updated to SP3) this morning, and installed the drivers etc etc..

i can NOT for the life of me get it to connect without the cable directly plugged into it. it was running fine off of the wireless connection before, and idk what i did to it..

well, its saying i am not acquiring and IP address, i'm sending out packets, but not receiving any.. and idk if it matters or not, trying to run off of road runner + a linksys router.

renewing and releases the IP doesn't work. resetting the router doesn't help. trying to repair the connection doesn't go threw all the way because it says i have no IP address..

any help would be MUCH appreciated! thanks

Not sure if this post is in the right place, but I'm sure they will move it if it isn't.

I've got a question about programs "hiding" your IP address.

If you have a router between your pc and the cable outlet, does the IP address still "hide" you?
Can't they tell who you are by your router address? Errr, does the router even have an address?

This stuff is confusing.

Don't know if I should waste money on something that isn't going to work.
