Linksys BEFVP41 cannot download DHCP address from cable modem

Ok here goes I have a BEFVP41 which I have used off and on (total 1 month) which is supposed to replace my Linksys NR041 (which works great but lacks functionality). I can't get the BEFVP41 to accept a dhcp address from the cable router (the WAN link is not glowing).

SOURCE: Multiple WAN IP Addresses with a Linksys Router

Yes, however we recommend using the following procedure is the only way you can do so without a block of IP addresses. The example below is for instances where you have multiple public IP addresses that are not in block form. For our example the ISP has given us 3 Public IP addresses. One goes to the FTP server, Web Server, and the Router. You can setup the router for whomever your ISP is. If you have a dynamic IP address and you're unsure on the setup, please see the article on setting up the router with a static IP address. If you have a static IP address please our article on setting up static IP addresses with the router, and it will describe how to setup the router with a static IP address. Once the router is setup, it will provide the 3 PC's (In our example) with internet access. The remaining two public IP addresses should be assigned to the WEB Server and the FTP server. Note - The Web and FTP servers will not be on the Local Area Network of PC-1, PC-2, and PC.

SOURCE: Router doesn't obtain WAN IP address (DHCP)

you can hook the router up and go into the settings by when it is hooked up to your computer, type in http://192.168.0.1 and the password is usually user or admin. the password is usually password, unless it was changed. you may be able to change settings to fix this problem through that GUI

Hi. I have a Motorola SB 6121 DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem. When I have a direct connectivity with this modem to the laptop with an ethernet, it works fine. But when I connect it to the Linksys wireless router,...


what is the ip address of the cable modem ?
when connected directly to the modem can you do ipconfig in dos command window and find out the gateway ip address listed.
This has to be the gateway ip address in the wi fi router.
turn of DCHP server in the WI FI router and make its ip address one more than the cable modem ip address.
make sure subnet mask is the same in both devices
Make sure DHCP server in Modem has leases above 20 to allow other devices to use 1 - 19 .
eg 10.0.0.1 or 192.168.0.1 for cable modem ip address internally.
make wi fi router 10.0.0.2 or 192.168.0.2 depends on the ip address of modem ?
Gateway address of 10.0.0.1 or 192.168.0.1 depends on the ip address of modem ?
dhcp server leases from 10.0.0.21 to 10.0.0.254 depends on ip address of modem ?

I am installing linskys to my home computer. I follow al of the directions on the linkys cd but when i switch the wire from the modem to the router and plug it back into the tower i wil not have an...


I think you need an extra cat-5 wire.

1.
Plug one CAT-5 LAN cable into the port labeled WAN on Linksys then the other end into the cable Modem where your PC is normally

2.
now take a separate Cat-5 LAN cable adn plug it into port 1 on the linksys - the other end into your PC NIC

3.
Power cycle Cable Modem (remove battery), linksys, PC this will clear the MAC addresses

4.
turn on modem, linksys then pc

5.
loging to windows - open IE on address bar type 192.168.1.1 - this should be the default address of your router (unless you've changed your subnet) in which case I recommend you factory default the route and use default settings. after typing teh 192.1386.1.1 you should see the linksys login

6.
Now try yahoo.com in IE, the routers factory setting for DHCP should work fine without any end user programming from you.

please rate me, good luck

MY LINKSYS WRT54G2 IS OK BUT CAN'T FIND SERVER.


The Linksys WRT54G2 is Cable/DSL router with 4 port switch. It has many features including a built-in DHCP server. By default, it's IP address is 192.168.1.1, username: blank and password: admin.

Plug in the Modem to the Linksys router's Internet / WAN port then plug your PC's to any of the 4 ports (1,2,3 & 4). The Linksys router once turned ON will automatically provide your PC with IP address starting with 192.168.1.xx (x means number from 100-149).

Make sure that known working ethernet cables are being used. Check your computer's IP adress by going to the command prompt. Start>RUN>type CMD then press Enter. Type IPCONFIG and check the IP address (e.g. 192.168.1.100). Check you PC's network adapter if you don't get an IP address from the Linksys router.

You may opt to reset the router by pressing the reset button at the back for 30 seconds if it fails to give out DHCP.

Cheers!

Reseting "Bridge mode" in RCA DCM 305R cabel modem


you can't set teh modem to bridge mode, however, you can set the router to bridge.
The linksys should have bridge mode configuration in the uer guide.

connected the 2 router together
configure the IP address of the liksys to be inthe same subnet as the moem, but out of the range of the DHCP of the modem. ie. DHCP address 192.168.0.2 through 192.169.0.100, the linksys should have the IP address as 192.168.0.200
disable the DHCP on the linksys
setup the wirless just the way you would if ti was the modem.
connect from the modem LAN port to the LAN port on thelinksys. leave the WAN port open.

Wireless router install on cable modem w/static ip address set


Connect a computer to linksys lan port 1-4, point browser to linksys http://192.168.1.1 under Setup->Basic Setup->Internet Settings choose "Static IP" and fill in the fields below... the field for gateway should be set to the static ip of your cable modem. the field for netmask should probably be 255.255.255.0. It may help to turn on DHCP for local network so that lan hosts can get their ip's from the linksys.

Setting up the BEFVP41 Router with a Cable Modem and a Dynamic IP Address


Connecting the Router and the Modem 1. Connect the Broadband modem to the computer using an Ethernet cable without the router installed and make sure that the Internet connection is active. If it is not, contact your Internet Service Provider. 2. Shut down the computer, and unplug the power cables to both the router and the Broadband modem. 3. Disconnect the Ethernet cable from the computer and plug it into the Internet or WAN port of the router. 4. Take the Ethernet cable that came with the router (or any another available cable) and connect it to the computer. Then, take the other end of that same cable and connect it to Port 2 on the back of the router. 5. Plug in the Broadband modem's power cable and wait for all of its lights to stop blinking. 6. After the lights on the Broadband modem stop blinking, plug in the router's power cable. 7. Start up the computer. Obtaining the PC's MAC Address Windows 98SE/ME 1. Click on the Start menu, then click on the Run option. 2. When the ?Run? window opens, input winipcfg into the ?Open? field, then click on the OK button. 3. The ?IP Configuration? window should appear, select the Ethernet Adapter that the PC is using from the drop down list. 4. Make note of the ?Adapter Address? which is the MAC Address. Windows XP/2000 1. Click on the Start menu, then click on the Run option. 2. When the ?Run? window opens, input cmd into the ?Open? field, then click on the OK button. 3. When the ?MS DOS Prompt? appears, input ipconfig /all then click on the [Enter] key. 4. Make note of the ?Physical Address? of the Ethernet Adapter (normally ?Local Area Connection?).
