Question

Locked

Home Network

By odedyer ·
Hi,

I'm trying to connect to the internet through a Linksys WRT54GL router. I'm using Motorola cable modem.
I can ping to the internet via the router UI (192.186.1.1 -> administration -> diagnostics -> ping) but cannot ping via the command-line or get online with the Internet Explorer.
Any ideas?

Thanks.

Reset Modem

by IC-IT In reply to Home Network

Reset your Cable Modem by removing the power and the coaxial cable. Leave it off for about 30 seconds. power it back up and then re-connect the coaxial cable. verify the computer is set for DHCP, connect and you should be good to go.

If so you will need to configure your router with the username password.
Talk to your cable company and ascertain what the configuation for your "computer" should be (only you will actual enter this in your routers settings).

DNS server???

by sdomescik In reply to Home Network

First of all...you live in Illinois, and the DNS server you have listed is from Israel. What cable company are you with? I also live in Illinois and have the exact same router and a Motorola cable modem. Try holding in the reset button on the back of the router to reset it to factory defaults. Shut it down along with your cable modem. Turn on the router and wait for it to cycle. Turn on the cable modem and wait for it to cycle. Try getting on the internet.
I googled your DNS server and it was from Israel. Also make sure the router is set to automatic configuration.

configuation issue

by ctmoore1998 In reply to Home Network

Check your TCP/IP configuration, if using DHCP go to a cmd prompt and enter 'ipconfig' /all ensure that you are getting IP from the router ok. Next perform a 'tracert' cmd ie tracert www.yahoo.com does this command work or not. Some cable modems must be power cycled to register the MAC address of the unit attaching to it, have you done this? Also do you have any type of 3rd party firewall software installed? If no and OS is XP SP2 try the following commands: NETSH INT IP RESET C:\resetlog.txt then IPCONFIG /RENEW * retry internet access.

Windows

Well if the router can ping your internet connection is working.

So either
1. DHCP on the router is not turned or broken
2. DNS on router is broken
3. NIC card on PC not working, not configured, or disabled.
4. Windows Firewall is on.

First make sure you have an IP address.

Go to command line and type;
ipconfig /all
It should come back and give you info about ur connections, such as what you see below.

C>ipconfig /all

If you have an IP address that makes sense for your network config and DHCP is enabled. I would assume your card is working and has obtained an address from the router.
