Re: Cisco 2100 Modem works, D-Link DIR-615 don't. HELP!

[ Edited ]

Okey-dokey

 

Ignore my previous 'blank' LOL

 

Sorry to be a bit thick, but do I do the above WITH or WITHOUT the router connected?

Re: Cisco 2100 Modem works, D-Link DIR-615 don't. HELP!

Hi mate,

 

Here's the info you needed:

 

 

 

 

First of all, with modem-only connected:

 

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

C:\Documents and Settings\(MY USERNAME)>ipconfig /release

Windows IP Configuration

Ethernet adapter Cisco 2100 Cable Modem:

        Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . :
        IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 0.0.0.0
        Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 0.0.0.0
        Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :

 

C:\Documents and Settings\(MY USERNAME)>ipconfig /renew

Windows IP Configuration

Ethernet adapter Cisco 2100 Cable Modem:

        Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . : cable.virginmedia.net
        IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 82.14.200.176
        Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.252.0
        Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 82.14.200.1

C:\Documents and Settings\(MY USERNAME)>

 

 

 

Now with router connected:


C:\Documents and Settings\(MY USERNAME)>ipconfig /release

Windows IP Configuration

IP Address for adapter Cisco 2100 Cable Modem has already been released.

 

C:\Documents and Settings\(MY USERNAME)>ipconfig /renew

Windows IP Configuration

An error occurred while renewing interface Cisco 2100 Cable Modem : unable to contact your DHCP server. Request has timed out.

C:\Documents and Settings\(MY USERNAME)>

 

 

 

 

Hope that helps,

hiya stouffer 

 

that's interesting 

 


 

Now with router connected:

C:\Documents and Settings\(MY USERNAME)>ipconfig /renew

Windows IP Configuration

C:\Documents and Settings\(MY USERNAME)>

 

 

since it should say Ethernet since i think your dlink has an issue trying to talk via that coverter, since it need a Ethernet controller to talk to. so i would use your cable modem and download the drivers from the belkin site for you NIC (network interface card) since im puzzled on what to suggest. ive drawn a blank on this 1.

http://en-us-support.belkin.com/app/product/list/q/network-adapters source for drivers.

Re: Cisco 2100 Modem works, D-Link DIR-615 don't. HELP!

Sorry mate, been away for 2 weeks

 

I downloaded updated drivers for the Belkin NIC, but WinXP still can't start the device, so am stuck with the only choice of using the USB/Ethernet adaptor and have given-up on the wireless router option.

 

If I ever get round to doing a system reinstall for whatever reason, perhaps i'll install the NIC first and see what happens, but until then...!

 

Thanks for your help anyway mate, appreciate it
