I have an ARRIS Docsys3 modem from Comcast which has a built in WiFi router. I also have a DIR-655. The Modem is in my office and I have a 100' Ethernet cable running through my attic to my front room where the dir-655 is located.
I use the DIR for WiFi as well I have it connected to my TV and Xbox.I use the ARRIS Modem for WiFi as well I have it connected to another Xbox and a Desktop computer.I want to have everything on 1 network, Dir-655 uses IP address 192.168.0.1-100 and the ARRIS uses ranges 10.0.0.1-100. I want to be able to connect to the dir-655 and have the IP for that connection join up with the 10.0.0... network so that I will be able to transfer files freely throughout the network.
I want everything on one network. Right now when I connect a laptop to the DIR-655, I can not access the printer that is connected to the Desktop on the ARRIS modem. I have to connect to the ARRIS modems WiFi to then use the printer on the desktop.Likewise, I want to use the media extender on the Xbox connected to the DIR-655 with the Desktop connected the the ARRIS modem, but I can not because of the to different networks.

How to bypass router to modem when the router has a built in modem? So my wireless router has a modem built into it, or is it the other way around: modem with built in router. I'm not sure...But anyway, because I am having such difficulties with the ps3 online, I have been told by many people to try bypassing the router straight to the modem.
Don't know how it happened but the built-in Conexant D480 MDC V.92 modem on my Dell D600 laptop was accidentally removed. How to get it restored or added back? My OS is Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3.
I've been getting internet from a SMC8014WN Wireless Cable Modem gateway and I've been having sporadic connection issues ever since. I use Wireless USB Adapters on my own computer to connect to it from across a hallway and into another room and the connectivity is not very consistent. [URL]No matter what adapter I use (I have many) I sometimes get "now connected" messages and when I'm playing games like TF2 my connection either spikes, or drops and comes back (I'll get DC warnings and the game will freeze, and then come back in)
My computer says it has built in Wi-Fi. Do I just need to buy a wireless router or do I need a wireless card? Also my son wants to buy a small laptop. Do I need to let my cable company know I am going wireless? If I have wireless in my home will he be able to connect to internet. New to this wireless thing.
I'm setting up Blast! Comcast/Xfinity internet (50mb/s) using an SB6120 modem and a linksys E3000 router. I haven't done anything yet, as i haven't received the modem in the mail yet, but i want to be prepared and knowledgeable when it all arrives. Here are my questions I've heard that running this router/modem setup on the N band at 5Ghz provides the best signal strength. How do i configure this? The main goal is to take advantage of as much of the 50mb/s as i can (i know this number is not practical due to overhead estimations etc).My newly built desktop has one free PCI-E slot (the other is occupied by my EVGA GTX 670) and 1 or 2 PCI slots. What's the best option to give my desktop wifi capabilities (pci card or usb adapter) in order to maximize signal strength? I'm about 10 feet away from the router, a door separates the computer from the router.
We have a standard surfboard modem and a standard wired router. I recently purchased a wifi-only tablet thinking I could connect to an ad-hoc hotspot. This however isn't the case and now I can't use my tablet at home.I'm going to buy an inexpensive wifi router and just have that dedicated for my tablet. I've read that you can connect a wifi router into a wired router, but it requires a lot of mucking about with the settings. Then I remembered the USB connections that modems and routers have.can you have one wired router connected to the modem via a standard cable and also have a wifi router connected to the same modem via a USB cable?
When I looked up the internet connection status, for the packets that I received 236, I only receive 30-40. When I click repair, it said the IP address already renewed. However, the internet still not working. When I use my laptop to browse the internet, it said the same thing, internet connected but cannot browse at all.
I tried so many things, such as clearing the DNS cache, releasing and renewing IP address, I did set the properties of the wireless connection to obtain DNS and IP automatically, I tried pinging, I turned off all my firewalls, I tried system restore, but still not working.
From last two days, my internet disconnecting frequently. Modem catching correct ip but no internet connection.modem catches correct ip address n other things, it shows connected to home network (i.e hathway) and internet access is allowed but browser display error 'webpage is not available' (same result for login page of ISP). I have tried different browsers but same result. windows network diagnosis center results as "your computer appears to be correctly configured, but the device or resource is not responding " OR "login.hathway.com is online but still not responding after couple of tries"(second error is not correct word to word tht was the over all meaning of it)In ping test, ping to default gateway gives very good result as 5-20ms but 'request time out' for url...So am not understanding whether it is my pc's problem or from ISP.I m using single pc with wired modem. windows 7 no changes made in network n sharing center.
There are 3 people in my house that are connecting to the internet by a single modem router, everything is fine when there is only 1 of us online , but when there are 2 or 3 of us online , our download & our upload speed dramatically decreases . So is there a way to maintain our normal download & upload speed even when all 3 of us are online ?
I have a 2wire modem and I'm using att DSL. The internet was working fine, I went out of town for 2 days, I returned to find my internet wont work. During the time I was out my brother said it hadn't worked for the 2 days. The modem works fine and all lights are green when my desktop is turned off or not connected. It even lets my brother use wireless on his laptop. However, when I turn on my computer or when I connect it to the modem with an ethernet cord, the DSL light will go red and not work.
A friend recently re-installed windows XP on their HP Laptop. They were connected wirelessly with a Linsys router (model wrt54g.1) and an RCA Cable Modem. The Cable ISP can ping the modem and gave me the IP address over the phone. I cannot ping the modem even when I take the router out of the loop. The network card (i1394) in the Laptop is functioning normally and I can see traffic on the modem (both the Cable Internet light and the PC activity light are flashing green) the ethernet port on the laptop is also flashing (amber). However I cannot reach the internet and cannot even ping the modem. The modem is brand new..
I am connected to the internet using a Huawei wireless USB modem connected to my desktop computer(no other type of service available) I would like to set up a Wifi home network so that I can connect using Wifi to all of the other gadget that I have in the house. So the question is can I connect a Wifi router using a ethernet cable comming from my desktop computer? and if so what router would you recommend for this application?
Just yesterday my laptop could connect to the Internet. Now it would just connect to the modem (via wi-fi), and there would be no Internet connection. All other computers in my house using wi-fi work fine.Here are my results when I type in the ipconfig /all in the command prompt.

I just moved into a new place and the cable company supplied me with a Motorola sbg6580 gateway and I have a netgear wnr3500l router with dd-wrt. because of location I have computers plugged into both devices (htpc and game consoles in the gateway, desktops in the netgear). how would i configure the gateway and router so everything sits on a single network AND the netgear with dd-wrt handling all the heavy lifting (port forwarding mostly)
My desktop recently broke so i bought my first laptop. I have AT&T DSL and i bought a new D-Link DSL-2640B modem/router so i could have wireless internet. I installed it and i was able to use it with the ethernet cable, however when i tried to use wifi, it worked for only about 2 minutes before it disconnected.. Now when i try again it says that it is connected (full 5 bars) but it also says there is no internet access and i cannot use the internet.
Also, before, with the old modem i was able to just connect the ethernet cable to the laptop and just start using the internet. Now i have to connect by putting in my username and password provided by my ISP almost like if it was dial up. I don't know why i have to do this now but not before.

I'm planning to set up a network with two routers and one cable connection. One router will be for public wifi at my business and the other will be for my Point of sale system and private use. I think I have it figured out but want to double check the set up. Someone tell me if this isn't correct or if there's a better way of doing it.Cable modem --> connect via ethernet to Router #1 WAN port. Router #1 Lan port 1: connect via ethernet to router #2 WAN. Now, router 1 and 2 will have two different subnets; 192.168.1.x and 192.168.2.x respectively. Router #2 is the one that I should use for my private network and for the POS system since it can't be accessed by users from router #1 correct? I have DD-WRT installed on both routers but I plan on putting Tomato firmware for router #1 to limit bandwidth for public wifi and keep DD-WRT installed for router #2.
I usually connect my PS3 to a switch which then goes to the BuT Home Hub and it works fine. However, I want to connect the PS3 directly to my Hub but when I plug it in to the Hub, it doesn't connect to the internet at all. Is there something I have to configure in order to get it to work?It is a PS3 160 GB Slim with Firmware 4.0.
I just moved into a new house.The house is wired with cat5e.my plan was to connect my cable modem to a multiport router. All of the cat5e cables will connect here. I planned on having my wireless router connect into a cat5e rj45 plug in the house. my laptop knows the wireless is there but it can't communicate.What do I need to do to allow communication?IP and subnet addressing
So i have recently upgraded my internet connection and was not gettting my advertised speeds, i called charter and they said to hook directly to my modem and i reluctantly agreed thinking nothing would change, man was i wrong! I use two sites to test, one was speedtest.net and here is the result:
I just bought a WRT54GL router, and am following the CD instructions for installation. Everything is connected according to picture (cable to modem to router to computer), and my phone and computer are working properly. However, the router is telling me that it cannot connect, and to check the ethernet connection.earlier a screen popped up to enter a password, but it was under the checking status screen, so I was not able to enter one. how to get the modem connected.
I have been using my DIR-655 for about 2 weeks now with Road Runner wideband services. Starting yesterday my internet became very slow and I discovered the cause was the router. I tried resetting it to factory settings and things will be fine and run smoothly for about 5-15 minutes but after that it goes back to being extremely slow. My speed tests would go from 10ms (normal) to 250-450ms. Before this issue occurred the Dlink was perfect, had full speeds. I am running a wire Ethernet connection.
I am currently using revB and tried upgrading firmware to 2.01NA which had no effect, but make my internet seemingly go back to normal for the first few minutes then nosedive again. I have also changed my speed/duplex settings in Network Config to 1gbs Full Duplex. I've also disabled QoS, and still no change. Not sure what else to do. When directly connected to the modem everything seems fine. The modem is also the provided Motorola SBG6580 which I have called Time Warner to set the modem into bridge mode and have the DIR-655 connected to it.
I have a cisco 2610 router connected to satellite modem (CDM-600). Cisco has NM-2W module with WIC-2T card, one port of this card is connected to modem via CAB-SS-530MT=, chassis WIC slot is filled with 2MFT-E1. Everything works fine for several hours. Then serial interface (connected to modem) goes down, and never comes up. I see following messages in the log. [code]
