Modem won't assign me an IP address

Q: Modem won't assign me an IP address

Okay I have a D-Link DSL G604T Wireless ADSL Router (revision B3), I works fine it works both with the LAN and wireless parts, I am connected via a ethernet cable on the computer I am using currently and my mums iBook is connected via the wireless.

But it wont give my computer an IP address, It was working fine but recently it stopped working, I am not sure what I did to stop it from working.

I tried connecting via my wireless adapter D-Link DWL-G510 (revision C) and then I moved the modem/router into my room and used an ethernet cable and plugged it into my onboard ethernet port, it wouldn't assign me an IP for that connection either.

I don't have a MAC address filter running on the modem, there is no wireless security nothing on the modem side that blocks my computer.

I tried using static IP's for both a wireless connection and using the ethernet, it connects to the modem, and I can access the modem but not the internet. It appears that when using static IP's it isnt routing me to the world wide web.

So It must be something to do with my computer. I tried to do a system restore, but that doesn't work It goes through the process of restoring, then when it restarts it comes up with incomplete restore cannot complete process or something. I tried multiple restore dates to restore to and none worked.

I would just re-install windows and be done with it, but I dont have any means of backing up data that I dont want to loose

Does anybody know what is going on or how to help me?

Preferred Solution: Modem won't assign me an IP address

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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Modem won't assign me an IP address

The router does not assign you an IP. Your computer is supposed to ask for one. Since the iBook is working OK, your router is responding to DHCP requests properly and your coomputer is to blame.

When you set up the static IP configuration, did you fill in all the data correctly? IP, mask, gateway and DNS exactly as on the working client? (The last octet has to be different for the IP address of course.)

Have you removed any malware recently? It could be that the removal program overdid it. Maybe run WinSockFix..

From your PC, post the output of "ipconfig /all" command.

I recently had to wipe my computer back to factory settings and now my computer won't assign an ip address. I have used wireless internet for a few years and not had any problems until now. Sometimes it says that I have connected to the wireless internet but wont allow me to actually access it, and other times it says that there is limited or no connectivity. I have tried doing system restore again, uninstalling and reinstalling the router but having no luck.

Any help would be great, I'm fed up of having a computer that I barely use just because of this. And I have barely any computer knowledge so basic terms would be really appreciated.

Please help!
 

A:PC won't assign an ip address

That failure is due to the system not locating the DHCP service on your LAN.

Suggest you use a wired connection and the Network Wizard first.

Then use the Wireless Wizard to connect using WiFi

My brother just bought a Dell XPS M1210 (Windows XP Media). First thing he did was format the hard drive and re-install windows to clear off all the pre-installed junk. Everything went okay, until it came time to install the wireless adapter. The driver on the CD wouldn't even install, I had to download a newer one off of the Dell website. Once installed though I get my excellent signal strength but "limited or no connectivity." My listed "Network Adapters" in device manager are: "Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection" for wireless, "Broadcom 440x 10/100 Intergrated Controller" for wired, and "1394 Net Adapter." The router I'm trying to connect the laptop to is a Linksys WRT54GS.

Now, wired with the Broadcom adapter all is well, I connect perfect. The Intel Wireless Adapter though keeps saying I have limited connectivity. Says the problem occured because the network did not assign a network address to the computer. Can anyone help here? I'm a network idiot for the most part...thanks.

Hi Everyone,

I just replace my old MS-6399 motherboard with an ABit MicroATX IS-10 board and some other hardware (processor, and my Sony CD writer with a Pioneer DVD writer). I finally got everything working until I installed my 56K modem combo with fire wire card and notice after the post/self testing where it checks for bootable drives and displays a summary of what devices have been assign to which IRQ etc, it fills the screen with nothing but rows of the “Simple Comm. Cntrlr” being assign to IRQ 12 over, and over again. It lists it 31 times it appears. I assume maybe it stops at 31 is because that’s the limit of times a device or devices can be assign to the same IRQ.

Here is what it appears on the screen over and over again:

2 29 1813 4000 0780 Simple Comm. Cntrlr 12
2 30 1813 4000 0780 Simple Comm. Cntrlr 12
2 31 1813 4000 0780 Simple Comm. Cntrlr 12

This is also happening in windows device manager. It list under modem Unknown, or Simple Communication Controller a ton of times, and it will keep saying New Device Found, and when you install the modem driver it just says New Device Found again over, and over again. I’m sure after installing the driver 31 or how many times this device been assigned, it will stop, but I am sure I will run into some major problems.

Note: I have remove the modem/1394 card and this stopped, and also I just added just a 56K modem and the problem didn’t appear. I disable the USB onboard controller from BIOS while the 56K/1394 fire wire... Read more

Locate the program file (.exe) or the program's shortcut icon.

Right-click the program file or shortcut, and then click Properties.
Click the Program tab for an MS-DOS program or the Shortcut tab for a Windows program.

With the cursor in the Shortcut key box, select the keyboard key you want to use in combination with CTRL+ALT. Shortcut keys automatically start with CTRL+ALT.

Of course you could always get yourself a programmable keyboard that has an email key

The Shortcut key box will display None until you select the key and then the box will display Ctrl+Alt+the key you selected. You cannot use the ESC, ENTER, TAB, SPACEBAR, PRINT SCREEN, SHIFT, or BACKSPACE keys.

They told me to REPOST here in this thread.
 
I have a machine that generally sits on our network with DHCP assigned address (into our company network - mask 172.x.x.x).  This assignment is correct and sufficient for the majority of the time.

However, this machine is also the dedicated assigned machine for accessing our ip-based telephone system which runs on its own network (192.168.65.x).

Currently, in order to access the configuration of our phone system, I have to manually change the ip address of the NIC from DHCP enable, to fixed 192.168.65.y - this then allows me to access the phone system through the browser.

My question is if its possible to create a specific user, say "phonesys", (local to the machine and not domain based), that once logged in automatically sets/has the NIC ip address as the 192.168.65.y fixed address in order that I can just log in and access
the phone system.  (Conversely, all other users which are domain controlled will have the NIC settings as now which is DHCP).

Is this possible?
The initial answer I got was that I could use netsh commands to set the address with a login script for a certain user...

A:How to assign different/multiple IP address to NIC network card

Actually it is possible, you (and I) have just been looking in the wrong place - it's not under
Alternate Configuration, it's under Advanced.  I just gave it a shot on my laptop and it seems to have worked:
After assigning a static address, gateway and DNS servers in the primary spot click on the
Advanced button.  You can then add as many secondary IP addresses as you wish.  But the primary IP must be static or you can't add secondaries.  You can also add secondary gateways (if needed) and DNS servers for your secondary IPs (if
needed) on the DNS tab.
I apologize for taking so long to figure it out; I knew I'd done it before, the how just slipped my mind.

Hi all,

The first computer I connect to the wireless works fine, but I have had to self-assign IP addresses for other computers/devices using the 10.0.1.x spectrum. I originally thought it was a problem with my airport express. However, my roommate recently tried to plug directly to the modem and his computer did not get an IP address (he changed his settings to allow for an automatic assignment). Is this something I can fix on my own or do I have to call the ISP and maybe get the modem replaced? Or is it easy enough they can diagnose over the phone? Any advice or thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
 

A:Modem and airport express won't automatically assign IP addresses

FIRST, make sure your firewall allows port 67 & 68 access both ways.

What system is this? and are you running the Windows FW or some 3rd party?

For some reason my Router stopped assigning my LAN Adapter a valid IP address. No windows updates were made, the router did not reset, I didn't change the driver, it was entirely spontaneous.

Things I've tried with no success:Power cycled the PC and the Modem/Router
/release & /renew the IP address trough the cmd prompt
"netsh winsock reset" from the cmd prompt (and restarted machine)
Switched ethernet ports on both the router AND my PC (I have two ethernet network adapters)
putting my entire router in the microwave for 15 minutes with a can of gasoline
repeated all the above steps per the direction of a "technical expert" at Verizon FiOS who clearly drinks paint for breakfast
Replaced the ethernet cable
Updated the driver of the network adapter
Manually entered a valid IPv4 address through the TCP/IPv4 Properties window
Attached are screen shots of the diagnostic results from Windows 7 that fail, as well as the ipconfig /all results with the invalid IP address the router keeps assigning.

Router type: Arris DG1670A

In the middle of the day yesterday my laptop lost the ability to connect to the Internet via the Wifi in my apartment building. It connects to other Wifi networks no problem, including an iPhone hotspot and public coffee shop Wifi; also, my other devices, including iPhone and Roku, have no trouble connecting to the Wifi in my building. So the problem is only between my laptop and this particular wifi router.
DHCP on this router does assign my laptop an IP address (192.168.0.11); the default gateway (192.168.0.1) and subnet mask (255.255.255.0) that my laptop receives are the same ones that my iPhone and other devices that connected successfully receive. But pinging the default gateway returns either (most commonly) a "Request timed out" or (occassionally) "Destination host unreachable."
I checked my ARP table using arp -a and it turns out that the default gateway is not being added to the ARP table; there is no entry for 192.168.0.1 in the table. I tried making a manual entry using:
netsh interface ip add neighbors "Wi-Fi" 192.168.0.1 [The router's MAC address]

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.

When repair was attempted it didn't work because "the network did not assign a network address to the computer". The 2nd and 3rd PC work fine though.

Back on my first PC, when I view the details there is a physical address, IP address, and subnet mask, BUT there is no Default Gateway, DNS Server, or WINS Server.

I have tried the other suggestions I read about RESET TCP/IP stack and RESET WINSOCK entries then restarting my machine but neither of these worked.

Under device manager my NVIDEA nForce networking adapter says it is working properly and there isn't any red X or yellow indicators.

The only weird thing I saw which i have not seen discussed here is when I run IPCONFIG /ALL: It says IP Routing enabled: NO and WINS Proxy enabled: NO.

Thank you in advance for any help and please let me know if you need some additional information.

I recently installed a DSL modem and hooked it up to my Router. Now both of them have firewalls installed, but if i connect to my modem via the 192.168.xx.xx address, all of my computer mac addresses are listed. why would the modem have that information, when the router is the one who should care...

I have static ips set up for each computer and my router set to DHCP. dont ask why, it just works.

But im worried that all someone would have to do is connect to my modem to get to my computers, they can completely bypass my router, as if it's not there :S

For 2 years, My XP computer has had no problems picking up 10-20 wireless connections in my neighborhood,some i could connect to,some i could not because they were secured.

i decided to go straight , and purchase DSL.

i bought a new computer(vista) and got a westell 327 DSL modem,which is also a wireless router. The new computer is working fine, i called Verizon to set up the new computer's dsl wireless network,that worked out fine.

My old computer,the one i spoke about opening this thread, that computer immediately picked up the DSL signal from my new computer in the other room.. The signal was excellent and the name of the network WAS ON THE LIST of the dozen other wireless connections i could connect to. Problem is when i went to connect to my own DSL network, i got this error message:

"Limited or no connectivity
You might not be able to access the internet or some network resource. This problem occurred because the network did not assign a network address to the computer."

I typed in the correct password,the little icon in the corner of my computer said both computers were connected, and with an excellent signal strength. Reiterating: i could still connect and go online with the other avaiable networks running the computer,but not my own.

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 have Hamachi running on my Vista operating system to have remote access to a desktop with Windows XP. Everything has run fine until today when I had to replace my modem on the Vista operating system that my wireless laptop runs on. Now, I have Hamachi still installed and running and I can see my remote access to the other computer, however my computer is not able to access the information from the other desktop Windows XP, because I have a new modem and do not know how to configure that new modem with the existing Hamachi.

So, my question is how do I set up the new wireless 2 modem to be seen by the Hamachi VPN network that is currently running all the time on my laptop to read the information on my business partner's desktop?

Need some help with a problem that just started. My HP G71 laptop, with Windows 7 Home Premium, will not connect to the internet over the wireless modem I have. Other laptops in the house have no problem in fact, that is how I am typing this right now
I checked the iP address and it starts with 169. The research I have done says that is bad...I am not an expert.

3. Went to properties of device, then uncheck QoS packet scheduler, then went bck in and checked it again

Hi - I hope you can help me. I am very new to wireless networking so I feel a bit stupid.

First: This is a new problem. I was connecting fine up until last night. My Fiances computer still connects fine. Additionally, I can connect to this other network that is in range. The problem is only with the router in our apartment.

I have 'Limited or no connectivity". "This problem occurred becuase the network did not assign a network address to the computer". I tried repairing the connection but it "cannot renew IP address".

I just don't know what to do now. It says to contact the person who manages our network, but that would be me and I don't know anything.

Thanks in advance!!

Disable encryption and MAC Address filtering on the router and try to connect. Assuming success you can probably re-enable encryption and reconnect.

If unsuccessful make sure you have the latest driver for the wireless adapter. Make sure you have the latest firmware for the router; then reset the router to factory default settings and reconfigure it.

I remember something about the 169.xxx.xxx.xxx ip addresses being an internal address that windows uses when it can't resolve the dhcp server sometimes. I had it once with windows 98 when we where having cable problems.

You may need to add another tcp/ip protocol for you nic, configure it to use dhcp for the cable modem.

I have desktop with Windows 98 SE and I am trying to connect to my cable modem using a network card. My computer can't get an IP address from my broadband service so it assigns an autoconfiguration IP address and I can't get on the Internet.

I have tried two different network cards with the same result. I have connected a laptop to the cable modem and it works fine. I have also connected my desktop via USB to the cable modem and it works fine but I need to use Ethernet so that I can eventually use a router. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the network card with no luck.

Does anyone have any ideas what could be causing the problem?

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?

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?
