Reset router and now I can't connect! Help!!!

By Cawaii ·
I was recently having Internet problems so I reset the router (D-Link, DIR 655) and setup a new wireless network and now no computer or any wireless device can connect. I know it's not just the internet because I'm connected directly to my Hughes Modem right now and I have internet. We have two computers here; this one when connected to D-link will say it has internet access but the internet doesn't load. It

every time I go in to change from DHCP, or even just change one thing, or even nothing at all, if i hit save settings it tells me my WAN and LAN IP address can't be the same. So it's impossible for me to change anything as I always get that error. I do have a private IP like you said. The cables are all fine it seems, when the problem occurred they hadn't even been touched. I've cycled the modem, didn't work. somethin' else I realize is before I reset the router, whenever typing in 192.168.0.1 in the address bar it would always bring up my hughsnet modem settings, not D-Link, even tho I was connected wireless using D-Link. Ever since the reset it always takes me to the D-Link settings now if I type that in~ =P

Ok, Your modem is handing out dhcp in same subnet. I'm not familiar with your model router, but can you change the internal dhcp (for your home pc's)on the router to 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0 ? This will allow you to have 192.168.0.0 on the dsl modem and 192.168.1 internally. Just a thought.

I tried changing the settings to that IP and it kept telling me the 4th part had to be a number between 1 and like 254... so it didn't work~ =/

Did you use 192.168.1.0 ?....this will not work if you use a subnet mask 255.255.255.0...try using something between 192.168.1.1-254.

Make the routers inside address 192.168.1.1 on the inside network and leave it dhcp assignes from hughes net on the outside (connected to the modem)
So inside 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0 and the router will get 192.168.0.x from the modem on the outside.

Just had a similar problem with a Billion router/modem giving the same error messages. Turned out that I had missed a filter on a telephone line used for ADSL.

That probably would affect only the modem. His router is downstream from the modem, connected via Ethernet.

Filters and LAN

Yes, I've seen filters misplaced and some very strange results. Many require that the system be generated from the first ethernet port (wired). Then the whole thing can be run from WIFI but the admin control is from that #1 port only. Restting the password is the first step to security and control of the Access point to your ISP and your little home network.

What is your ipconfig when you connect directly to the modem?

by mfa In reply to Reset router and now I ca ...

Also, who is your ISP? I've see cases where the ISP's protocols are very picky. As suggested above, you may have to clone your PC's MAC address to fool the ISP into thinking your router is really a PC. Some ISPs (Comcast used be like this) don't want any router other than theirs to be connected. The fact that everything works when you connect the PC directly to the ISP's modem suggests this might be the problem. How was the router set up initially -- I guess it did work at one time?

My ISP is HughesNet, they're satellite~ my modem model is HN9000 if that helps any~ this all worked just fine in the past, tho when we first hooked it up it seemed we had to call D-Link to have them specifically tell us some stuff we needed to put in router, I can't call them now tho because I'm not under warranty anymore and they will charge me~ it was a hassle to set up but everything had been working fine for 6 months~ then a week ago the weather was a little cruddy so it was affecting the connection to the modem, I thought it was the router and reset it, now they're is no wireless internet~ =( I've cloned my MAC address, that doesn't do a thing~ tho my LAN MAC address is different and I don't know if that's the one I should be cloning? if so then I don't know how to do it, can't find the settings for it anywhere~ =P and ipconfig for the modem is,
