I have just installed the motorola sb5101 cable modem and connected it to my Belkin f5d7230-4 vs 1000-au router. I have tried everything possible but Vista refuses to ack the router.I have wired the modem to the WAN and from the Ethernet port on the PC to slot 1 on the router. This worked when I had my old ADSL2 modem so the wiring is not any different. Have tried Network Magic but this also doesnt see the router. Running PcCillan, and have turned off ALL firewalls possible

please help:4-dontkno

Re: Router probs

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows Vista.

Start, Programs\Accessories and right click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt.

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log

Reset IPv6 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log

Reboot the machine.




Also, try these.

Changes that may help to increase the compatibility of Vista with older networking devices:



Disable the IP Helper service:

1. Go to Start and type in "services.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter
2. Scroll down to the IP Helper service, right click on it and select Properties
3. In the dropdown box that says "Automatic" or "Manual", set it to Disabled and then click on "Apply"
4. Then click on "Stop" to stop the service from running in the current session
5. Click OK to exit the dialog



Disable IPv6:

1. Go to Start and type in "ncpa.cpl" (without the quotes) and press Enter
2. Right click on each network connection and select "Properties"
3. Remove the checkmark from the box next to "Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6)
4. Click OK to exit the dialog

NOTE: You should do this for each network connection.



Disable the DHCP Broadcast Flag:

Link: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/928233
  1. Go to Start and type in regedit and press Enter.
  2. Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
  3. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\{GUID}
  4. In this registry path, click the (GUID) subkey to be updated.
  5. If the key DhcpConnForceBroadcastFlag does not exist, use the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD (32-bit) Value. In the New Value #1 box, type DhcpConnForceBroadcastFlag, and then press ENTER. If the key exists, skip this step.
  6. Right-click DhcpConnForceBroadcastFlag, and then click Modify.
  7. In the Value data box, type 0, and then click OK.
  8. Close Registry Editor.
NOTE: You should do this for each and every GUID subkey.




The only program I'm aware of that currently relies on IPv6 is the new Windows Meeting Space. The first 2 changes will cause that program not to work - but will leave all of your normal (IPv4) connections unaffected. If it causes problems that you can't overcome, simply revert back to the original settings.

Re: Router probs

Thankyou for that, unfortunately my system didnt change one bit, if blatenlety refuses to ack the router. Even the Network Magic software doesnt pick it up. I know its not the router as it was fine b4 I changed modems, but I did all the changes you mentioned, but no difference:sigh:

Re: Router probs

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

Re: Router probs

You have the modem plugged into one of the LAN/Network ports. Turn off both the modem and router, and connect the modem to the WAN/Internet port. Turn on the modem, wait for a steady data light. Turn on the router, wait for two minutes. Reboot the computer.

Re: Router probs

thanks again, but the router only has 1 port for Internet/WAN the other 4 are for pc's. Ive already done the turn off and reboot seq 5-6 times as from other advice on the net, but the system doesnt change whatsoever. Heres how the system is wired. From the Modem to the WAN/Internet port on the router, and from Port 1 on the Router to the ethernet port on the PC.The router has WAN lit up as well as activity on the Port 1. The other Pc's detect the Belkin network (wireless cards and wireless laptop), but won't connect to it.

thanks for your help

Re: Router probs

Well, you have a public IP address, which doesn't happen unless the router is configured for bridge mode, or you have the modem connected to a LAN port.

My advice is to reset the router to factory defaults and see if that helps.
