Router problems...

  1. I have a D-Link DI-604 router for computer internet use and xbox live...
    just recently the internet use for the computer has been very unreliable...
    I would open Mozilla, my homepage would load... then any other site I would try and go to would not work.. it says "Server not found" so I went to options and connection settings, changed it from Direct Connect to Auto Detect Proxy Settings and it would then load the page. If I tryed to go to yet another page or back to my homepage it would say "Server Not Found" again.............
    :mad:
    Does anyone have any ideas?? Could it be my Ethernet Cords??

    Also the connection for Xbox live works perfectly with no trouble whatsoever.

    DO you have a proxy server?

    ALot of time you cannot get anywhere if you use a proxy and it is down...

    go into network connections under control panel. select TCP/IP. right click. ensure it is set for automatic.
    hold your reset button on your router (usually you have to use a pointy item like a pencil tip) it is usually in the back for about 10 sec.
    now reboot everything and retry.

    remember the basics;
    you must be able to ping the gateway
    and ping the DNS to be able to resolved urls

    if you're directly connected to the cable/dsl modem, then the addresses
    you need are shown directly via IPCONFIG /ALL

    otherwise, you need the WAN side data from your router.

    Win/* has NSLOOKUP that will take either an address or a name
    (eg www.google.com). if this works for you, then your browser will too.
    If not, the config create by DHCP is bogus and you need to reconfig
    as noted by others this thread.
