problems connecting D-Link router to my cable modem
I am having poblems connecting my cable modem to a D-Link DI-704 router. My cable modem provider is Buckeye Cable and I am running Windows XP. I have tried manually entering the IP adress, Gatway etc. but have had no luck. Anyone have any tips?

Does your provider assign you a set IP or use DHCP?

Not sure. How do I tell?

I just put my router between my modem and my two computers and it worked out of the box. I was amazed and surprised since i expected to have to troubleshoot.

if you go to your control panel and open up your network settings
click on your TCP/IP for your network card select properties.

what are your settings?

under WINS configuation

is Use DHCP for WINS resolution marked?

You may need to mask the MAC address of your computer in the router.

I had to do this with my Linksys router. In the advanced settings of the router you can enter a MAC address.

Maybe your D-Link has such a feature. You can find the MAC address of your PC by doing ipconfig from a DOS prompt.

Under IP srttings it has DHCP enabled

This is what is checked under Wins:

Use netbios setting from the DHCP server. If static IP address is used or the DHCP does not provide netbios setting, enable netbios over TCP/IP.
