3. Select ADVANCED > Administration > Router Status.
4. Check that an IP address is shown for the Internet port. If 0.0.0.0 is shown, your router has
not obtained an IP address from your ISP.
If your router cannot obtain an IP address from the ISP, you might need to force your cable or
DSL modem to recognize your new router by restarting your network. See Sequence to
Restart Your Network on page 144.
If your router is still unable to obtain an IP address from the ISP
, the problem might be one of
•Your Internet service provider (ISP) might require a login program.
Ask your ISP whether it requires PPP over Ethernet (PPPoE) or some other type of login.
•If your ISP requires a login, the login name and password might be set incorrectly.
•Your ISP might check for your computer’s host name.
Assign the computer host name of your ISP account as the account name in the Internet
•If your ISP allows only one Ethernet MAC address to connect to Internet and checks for
your computer’s MAC address, do one of the following:
-Inform your ISP that you have bought a new network device, and ask them to use the
router’s MAC address.
-Configure your router to clone your computer’s MAC address.
If your router can obtain an IP address, but your computer is unable to load any web pages
from the Internet, it might be for one of the following reasons:
•Your computer might not recognize any DNS server addresses.
A DNS server is a host on the Internet that translates Internet names (such as www
addresses) to numeric IP addresses. Typically, your ISP provides the addresses of one or
two DNS servers for your use. If you entered a DNS address during the router’s
configuration, reboot your computer, and verify the DNS that address. You can configure
your computer manually with DNS addresses, as explained in your operating system
•Your computer might not have the router configured as its TCP/IP gateway.
If your computer obtains its information from the router by DHCP, reboot the computer,
and verify the gateway address.
•You might be running login software that is no longer needed.
If your ISP provided a program to log you in to the Internet (such as WinPoET), you no
longer need to run that software after installing your router. You might need to go to
Internet Explorer and select Tools > Internet Options, click the Connections tab, and
select the Never dial a connection radio button.
