Router problem: can't get an ip

Q: Router problem: can't get an ip

Hey, I m having a big problem with my router.
I use a wa3002g4 utstarcom router. An year ago everything worked fine.

Now, my pc fails to get an ip adress even though dhcp is enabled. When I manually assign an ip, it connects and I am able to 'ping' as well. But, I still cant connect to router's login page or internet. If I connect using wifi it shows 'Limited or no connectivity'. Please help.

Preferred Solution: Router problem: can't get an ip

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Router problem: can't get an ip

Try a manual reset. There should be a reset button on the router. This will load factory defaults and allow you to start fresh. If this fails, your device is likely bad.

Edit: BTW I am experiencing the same thing to an extent because of bad service. The bad service is somehow creating chaos with my network. The network functions more smoothly with the ISP connection disconnected. You can try disconnecting your ISP cable and check your network settings without ISP first.

My home network use to consist of 3 comps all running XP Pro and a Vonage router. With the addition of a 4th comp, I have had to use a port on the back of the RTP 300 for one comp. The four others ( 3 comps and the Vonage router )are connected to my Linksys WRT54GL. and I have no problems sharing files and printers. The one comp connected to the Vonage router will not allow file sharing or show up in Network Connections although it has no trouble accessing the net. Is there a setting in the Linksys router that I have to change to allow this one comp to share? I can't access the RTP 300 to make changes as it is locked. I have made sure all the comps are using the same work group and all file and printer settings are set the same on all comps. Any help would be appreciated.

Dear forum,

I have a certain situation for you:
6 people use LAN-cables connected to the same router in the basement. They all have decent internet.
One day, the 6th person decides to connect a (wireless) router on his end.
Ever since then, the other 5 tenants have had very slow internet connection.

They're pretty sure it's due to the last person installing his wireless router. However, they have no idea how to explain to him how exactly his router is causing the troubles.

How would u explain what is causing the slow connection? (does it have something to do with 'ethernet' and 'gigabit ethernet' ?) ( you can throw whatever terms u want at me, I'll google them if necessary.)

Thank you,

A:home networking problem: router - router

Did he just plug his router into the other router, and then expect everything to work properly? If so, that's a really bad idea, since DHCP is likely enabled on both routers, and the IP conflicts between them will definitely be part of the general mess. If you can provide the make and models of both routers, then a walk-through on here might be possible.

Sounds like the 2WIRE router has a problem. Some things you can try here.
Update the firmware to the latest version available on the manufacturer's site.
Reset the router to factory defaults and reconfigure.

Many times these measures will resolve a lot of intermittent issues.

I got a new router a few weeks ago, a Netgear RangeMax cable router WNR834B, installed it, and at first all was OK, running 2 desktops by cable and 2 laptops by wireless, all XP, however over the last few weeks I have noticed that sometimes I keep getting Internet "Explorer cannot display the webpage" , it does not happen every time, about 3 of ten, on the desktops, cant say I have seen it on the laptops (wireless), can't find what is causing it, and it's now driving me mad.

I have tried, resetting router and Motorola sb5100 modem, restored router to factory specs, uninstalled all security programs, I even restored my system with a backup, all with no joy, I have now put back on my old belkin wired router and all is OK, so it's got to be the new router.

A friend of mine is having a problem with connecting to secure sites (other sites are fine). We've narrowed it down to her router. Both her PC and her Ipod cannot connect to secure sites via the router, but when connected directly into the d-link, both will connect to secure sites.

Any ideas about what is going on? Or does she need to buy a new router? Is there a way to "reset" it? Like unplugging it or something? She didn't tell me what router it is, but I can find out if anyone needs to know that.

i have a wireless connection that was working fine until a few days ago. I am able to get the connection from my parent's router in the basement. A few days ago my internet connection suddenly stopped working. The computer says that it's connected to the router, but that the router isn't connected to the internet, which is impossible because the internet is fine on my parent's downstairs computer. The last time this happened the problem was that i was connected to my neighbor's router, which is probably the problem now. How do i change back to my parent's router in the basement?

Also, when i type in "ipconfig" into the command prompt, it says "media disconnected"

I have a wired router (not wireless) and I've been able to log into this router with a user name and password I am very familiar with for years. I logged in a few minutes ago and disabled UPnP. As soon as I saved the setting, it popped up the log-in screen again and will no longer accept my user name and password.

Just for kicks, I tried the Linksys default user name and password and it doesn't work either.

How did disabling UPnP cause the router to now reject the log-in?

Short of resetting to factory defaults and starting over, any suggestions on how I can log in again?

The router is currently working fine; I'm just locked out of it at the moment.

A:Router Problem?

Could be software or hardware. On the software front it could be your AV software, the ones with with firewalls can casue issues like this. Make sure the cables are connected and firm, replace the cable from the router to the PC. After writing down the routers settings try reseting the router itself. It many be your network card itself if nothing of theses suggestions work.

hey guys. here's my problem.. i go to college and i want to play Halo online by using a program called xbox connect. well, i can join games with the program easily, but when i try to host a game, it won't let me. at the xbox connect startup it says that if you have problems hosting, go to their help site, which i did and my router isn't on there. i tried a google search on how to config my particular router and had no luck. it said something about typing a certain ip address into internet explorer and when i would do that.. it would say it couldn't find it.

if anyone could help i'd be greatly appreciative. my router is a D-Link DSS 5+. i'm using Windows XP Professional Edition.

hello oh glorious peeps,

My Problem:

I can connect to the net, (hence this message)
but while i am connected, my router will just lose dsl connection and not try to re-establish!

my friend said that it could be over-heated, and one time i opened it :S and it was so hot i burned myself

could it be the fact it's really hot that is causing the disconnection?
or is it something else?

my router is a:
BT Voyager 220V ADSL Voice Router

A:~^~ Router Problem ~^~


The problem is probably the overheating of the DSL. You can try updating the firmware on your DSL router. You can also try leaving the router enclosure open so the heat can dissapte quickly.

I would personally recommend getting a new router.

My router recently stopped working. I got an old one out of the lost and plugged it in. Initially could get it to work using ethernet cable but now nothing. I am currently logged in to neighbours router but need to get my own up. Another friend has given me a router the same as my original but I cant get an internet connection with that either. Assuming it is either a setting I have managed to set wrongly or something to do with my line. Please can anyone help. Broken router and friends router are Netgear DG834GT. I'm assuming this is something so simple that no one mentions it but hey what do I know.

Newby question - does a wep key come with a router or with a line connection.

A:Router Problem

You will want to start by returning the router to its factory defaults since it probably has an old configuration for other ISP. This is reset procedure from the manual:

To restore the factory default configuration settings without knowing the administration password or IP address, you must use the Default Reset button on the rear panel of the router.

1. Press and hold the Default Reset button until the Test LED turns on (about 10 seconds).

2. Release the Default Reset button and wait for the router to reboot.

The manual for the router is available from Netgear's website (PDF file). It will tell you how to setup the router using the web interface.

Does a wep key come with a router or with a line connection?Click to expand...

No. This is something you'll setup when to configure the wireless security. RTFM.

I have a Linksys WRT54GC router with a cable modem. Is it possible that the router could be causing the modem to drop connection and change IP addresses? I have been having some issues with keeping a connection. When my connection drops, I can still view my router and my modem pages but not the internet. The page that comes up on the modem says it is trying to connect. I normally have 4 lights on the router lit, (2 that blink, and 2 that are steady on), when the connection goes out, I have 2 lights that blink together.

The main reason I ask this is over the past week or so I have my stationary desktop that is wireless drop the router signal a couple of times (keeping in mind that my wired PC doesn't quit working)and the only way to get it back is by rebooting my router.

Any thoughts?

A:Is this a router problem?

If your wired connection is not affected,then this is probably not a modem issue.
Let's try a couple of things with the router.
Go to the linksys site and download/install current firmware updates.
If that does not help,then do a router reset.Hold the reset button in at least 15 seconds.
What router lights are on when the failure occurs ?

I reset my router now my wireless laptop doesnt work. I reset it so It would go back to its original password. Since my cable company put a pass on it and lost it. Anyways I reset it and upgraded the firmware and I made it so I could host with war3. Both went fine. However when I went to my wireless laptop, it wouldnt connect to the internet. Im using a linksys wrt54g router. With the latest firmware. I think its as simple as opening a port within my router, but I really dont know how.

What can I do?

A:Router problem

By default, these days, when you reset a router to its factory defaults, wireless is disabled for security purposes. To re-enable it, you need to connect to the router with an Ethernet cable, and open the routers config utility by typeing into a web browser connected to the router. (leave the username blank, password is "admin", no quotes). From here, you can open your routers settings (there are several menus, but you're wanting wireless config). You'll want to enable wireless, and then implement some form of encryption for security and privacy. WPA is recommended.

If I understand this correctly you are trying to connect to the internet through your second computer through a router. I would check firewalls including the Windows one that has given me problems before. Have you switched ports to make sure it is not a faulty port and also have you switched the cables to make sure it is not a cable problem. Can you connect to the internet on the second computer if it is not going through the router? Cause that might mean it is a NIC problem.

did you install the wireless adapters software - it maybe controlling the adapter and disabled your onboard adapter

would you post a device manager screen shot and ipconfig /all - without the adapter connected

ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here

We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results in a reply here

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

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

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results to notepad and then automatically open notepad.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results to a reply here
to do that:
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
all the text will be highlighted
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy
Now go back to the forum - reply and then right click in the reply box and paste

Device Manager

A:Problem with 2 pcs getting with net with a router

The addition of the X-box may have caused the problem. Virgin sometimes only allow 1 or 2 MAC addresses to connect to the internet at any one time. Once its picked up 2 MAC addresses it wont let anything else connect. Can you use one computer on the internet while your x-box is connected? Can you do a little representation of ur network. i.e what plugs into where and also run an IPconfig /all on both the machines and post the results

A:2 Router problem.

Probably a little better to make the "gizmo" the primary, but whichever you choose connect them the following JohnWill way. This configures the secondary router as an ethernet switch and optionally a wireless access point.

Connecting two SOHO broadband routers together.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router 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.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. Leave the WAN port unconnected!

i have a netgear router WGR614 and all was working fine. I have a desktop which use a netgear Wireless-G usb 2.0 adapter
(WG111) to connect wireless to the router.I also have an acer aspire 4530 which have a built in WIFI.
Today, when i tried to connect to internet, i was not successfull...always says cannot access my network.My network appears but i cant access.Later on i cant see my network anymore.I noticed that the router power light was blinking,test tick was also lighted and internet. The wireless light was not lighted.I tried to connect to the internet using cable thru the modem without the router and i did. I wonder what was the problem with my router.Im sure its in the router bcoz i can access internet when i plug directly to modem.Pls help me trouble shoot my router...thanks in advance
btw im running on vista

A:router problem

Let's check to be sure I understand the problem.
Neither the desktop or laptop can access internet by wireless.
One or both can access the internet by a wired connection.
Router wireless light is not on.

First thing would be to access the router's setup pages using the wired connection and check to be sure the wireless radio is turned on.

First step is to contact the IT department to see if wireless routers are permitted in your dorm, and if they know offhand what the issue is.

Hello. A nearby computer tech guy just died of heart failure and I got his wireless router, however, It has a password on it that I can't get through. I really want to use this router, but apparently, he never wrote down the password or stored it anywhere on any of his computers. Is there any way I can get the password or reset it? I'm sorry if this is a novice question, but networking is not my thing at all. Any suggestions on how I can use this router? It's pretty much worthless without the password. His wife doesn't know anything about it either, otherwise she wouldn't have sold it to me.

im using a linksys befsr41 and i have it connected to my xbox 360 and my pc.. the connection stays on my xbox but always seems to go out on my pc anyone have any idea why this is? running windows vista. im using roadrunner cable. if you need anymore info plz tell me

A:router problem

Ideas: Defective router LAN port, cable or NIC. Incorrect or corrupted driver. Corrupted stack or non-Windows firewall.

Some things to start with ...

Install, or re-install, the latest network driver, from your PC or motherboard manufacturer if appropriate.

Switch cables and router LAN ports with the Xbox.

What non-Windows firewall or security suite do, or did, you have on the machine?

(From a JohnWill post)

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Vista or 7.

Start, Programs\Accessories and right click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt.

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log

Reset IPv6 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log

Reboot the machine.

Im connected to a router with 4 other lodgers and for the past few days between 6pm and 12am my connection is really slow. ping is around 4000 not the usual 30. This happened once about a month ago too. I know if someone on the router is downloading from a fast server it will affect my bandwidth but im talking so slow it takes a minute to open a simple page like google.

could it be possible one of the lodgers is some hacker, cos even though its slow im sending and recieving hundreds of bytes a second at times. ive tried disabling the QOS i was told that speeds things up a bit but its still slow as hell. anyone got any advice?

thanks for any info.

A:Router problem

Ok it might be a possibility that they are not downloading or listening to streaming radio or watching streaming video. I have seen this alot, but those pings are outragous. Also I know bit torrents can mess with bandwidth as well. which is downloading so check in to these issues.

Please post back here the make and exact model of the router and if separate, the make and exact model of the modem

also post the ipconfig /all
ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here

We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results in a reply here

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

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

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results to notepad and then automatically open notepad.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results to a reply here
to do that:
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
all the text will be highlighted
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy
Now go back to the forum - reply and then right click in the reply box and paste

My router is a Netgear R314. Lately its been dissconnecting my internet connection (DSL) for a breif ~5 seconds. AIM will have to reconnect, I cant host games in WC3, without everyone getting kicked, & I get booted from UT servers. Its very annoying, because it happens like every 10 minutes or so.

Any ideas on what could be rong? It didnt do this from day 1.

I know its my router, becasue when I unconnect it [take my DSL ethernet cable (DSL Line>DSL Modem>output ethernet cable) and plug it right into my PC, instead of the router,] this doesnt happen. :blackeye: :dead: :blackeye:

Please help!

A:Problem with my Router

Very well done for disconnecting your router from situation to see if that solved it - that's good troubleshooting, well done.

I have a couple of suggestions:-

Is is possible for you to return your router to its factory settings with some kind of reset? Have you tried this?

Your router could be faulty, though. But to make sure, be careful to test all other bits and pieces including cables and so forth. Be absolutely sure that its the router by eliminating everything else.

Have you looked on the web site of your router or done a google search to see if this is a known issue?

Oh, wait. Hang on I just did that and only got 15 or so hits.... hmm.... where did you get this device???

I've got this Aztech HomePlug AV 2-Port Wireless-N Extender model number HL110EW, problem is that i can connect to it but it has no internet access, i've tried switch it off and on, it works sometimes after quite a number of tries, sometimes it works for awhile and sometimes for a long time before it stops again... right now no matter how many times i switch it off and on, it doesn't work.

My main modem has internet connection though, it's only this router that doesn't have internet access, i've tried using other devices to connect to it but it doesn't work so i'm pretty sure it is the router's problem or something else which i don't know what it is...

i'm not really good at this kind of stuff.. please help..

EDIT: it's the IPv4 connectivity that has no internet

However, after a few hours the adsl light starts blinking and I cant connect to pages although I still have connection to the internet. Any thoughts much appreciated and if more info is required just shout.

If the ADSL light start blinking, and you can't load pages, what makes you think you're still connected?

I just bought a D-Link 4 port ethernet broadband router. I hooked it up to my newer computer and everything went good. then i unhooked it because i am going to put it in my room. I hooked up the older computer to it and did the install and it went alright too. then i hooked the newer computer up in my room and connected it to the hub and it wouldnt work. then i unhooked the newer computer and the older one wouldnt work anymore. then i unhooked the router and the internet wont work even when it is directly hooked up to the computer without the router. Could someone help me? Thanks.

A:Router Problem.

Turn everything off--everything. Disconnect the router and modem from their power sources. Connect everything as you want it. Turn on the modem first. Let it come to fully-operational state. Turn on the Router and let it come to a fully-operational state. Then turn on the computers one at a time.

If it doesn't work then, you have either a misconfigured router or some hardware problem.

A:Router Problem

hi, i had a problem like this with a wireless router, same model WRT54GS.
what happened is that i had not configured correct the wireless security of both router and laptop and the laptop was accessing another wireless router installed nearby as both networks had adjacent radio channels and the laptop wa set to auto channel search. thus picking the other router not mine. try to compare the network / security settings of both wireless router and your pc and see if you have any other wireless network around that might interfere with your wirelessnetwork signal.
