Computer not seeing router? (Update: Virus?) - Page 2

post #11 of 26
Thread Starter 
The thing is, the wiring we did is wired up through the floor since the modem/admin computer are downstairs right underneath my room. The way he wired it too is a ***** since the hole he drilled is just wide enough for the wire to go through but not the jack at the end of the wire =\\ lol

Ok, thanks Chim. I'm trying the admin stuff right now I'll get back to ya.

**EDIT** man, my step-dad is going to OBLITERATE MY SOUL. The wizard is prompting me to change the password, saying I HAVE to to continue with the wizard. I don't know the old password so I can't just set it as the old password, so if I change it my step-dad - being a paranoid security freak who thinks I'm going to blow up his computer - will destroy my everything haha

Well, he was trying to be as helpful and optimistic with me as he could yesterday so I'm sure he will be willing now

Thanks a lot for your help though. I'll get back to you guys in an hour or so. Maybe less. My mom is going to pick him up from his kayaking right now so he'll be home soon lol.

Thanks again Chim.

Bah! I should have guessed as much My step-dad just said he didn't set the connection up and therefore does not know the password

But yea, whenever I try to repair the connection (I didn't mention this before) it says I can't renew my IP. I think anyone with a little networking experience could have guessed this by now though.

Anyway, thanks.

Ok, here's a summary of what's happened for anyone who tries to help me further:

It's not the wiring. Wiring is fine. I tried connecting through my brother's connection and I still got the same thing "Limited or No Connectivity". When I try to repair it says it can not renew my IP address. Also, in the Network Connection details it says that I have an IP address, of course, and a subnet mask, but no gateway/DNS.

I tried installing a seperate PCI NIC that my step-dad used to use, and that didn't work either. Same problem.

So basically I'm thinking it's either some software problem on my computer for some reason, or for some reason the router decided to randomly start blocking my IP from being able to see it. Remember what I said earlier: it worked, then all of a sudden... it just didn't. I don't know if it's anything I might have changed that's caused this, but I don't think so since I don't remember doing anything significant in the few minutes that I had my internet up for any harm to be done by myself.

And remember, we don't have the password for the router I don't know how to get it and I don't think my step-dad does either, so even if it is a problem with the router (which I don't think is my problem) I can't access it anyway.

And last, incase no one can help me here directly with my problem, the least they could do is link me to a good networking help forum if they know one.

Thank you all for your time and effort. You especially of course, Chim3ra.

There should be a way to reset the password. Read through the manual and there should be some way for you to reset the modem completely. I think it'd be best for you to stop thinking of it as a router. It's more of a modem that splits your signal out. The difference is the modem is getting the signal directly from the internet providers server. If nothing else is working you might have to call your provider and ask them to reset your connection.

the default username for dlink is usually admin and password is left blank. In some routers its admin / admin unless its from verizon and then its admin / Password1 i beileve.

the simple solution to rule out your internal wiring dilema (come on now, cat5 at home depot is cheap... pull a good cable or 5 while you're at it) is to bring the router up to your computer and see if you can connect that way.

Heres the reset process:
Step 1 Locate the reset pinhole on the back of the unit.
Step 2 With the unit powered on, press and hold the Reset button.
Step 3 Hold the Reset button for about 10 seconds.
Step 4 Release the Reset button.
Step 5 The unit will reboot. Allow 20-30 seconds before reconnecting.
Step 6 The device is now at factory defaults.
Note: Do not recycle power during the reset procedure.

Try unplugging the router again but shut off all the computers and disconnect them from the router. Then plug the router back in. Then plug one computer in and the turn on that one, plug in the next and turn that one on, and the same for the last one. I had a problem like that awhile ago and also thought it was another issue until I did the above. If it still doesn't work go to the command prompt and type ipconfig/release and press enter, then type ipconfig/renew.
