If your have software from your DSL provider such as "WinPoet" or "Enternet300" or you need to run a program (other than your browser) from your desktop to connect to the Internet, then you will need to configure your router for PPPoE.

I went from a ATT dsl modem to a net gear modem and i cannot get the net ger mode and linksys mode to talk to the computer

Most DSL providers use PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) to establish Internet connections for end-users. To set up a Linksys router, you need to enable PPPoE on the router’s web-based setup page.
To setup a Linksys router with a DSL connection you need to perform four steps:
  1. Verifying Internet Connection
  2. Connecting the Devices Together
  3. Checking the LEDs
  4. Setting-up a DSL ISP on a Linksys Router
Verifying Internet Connection
Connect the Broadband modem to the computer using an Ethernet cable without the router installed and make sure that the Internet connection is active. If not, contact your Internet Service Provider.

I can not get on the net via my router. I can get out on my laptop directly connected to DSL modem. what am i doing wrong?

That means your router is not yet configured for internet access. If you are on DSL, your modem's IP and router's IP might be conflicting with each other. You need to change the router's IP address. If not, you can simply configure PPPoE settings on the router's admin page. If you can open the router's setup page, look for Internet Connection Type, choose PPPoE and provide the information that it asks you like username and password given by your DSL provider.

Hi i hav purchased a Dlink dir 300 router. is this router capable of letting multiple pcs n cell phones connect to it for internet wirelessly with out the need of keeping 1 pc switched on all the time? i...

Yes if you consult the manual that came with the router it will show you how to connect the modem to it and setup the DSL (PPPOE)settings. Some Modems though already have the PPPOE settings within the unit and then the router would just need to be set to automatic. You will need to configure from the PC but afterwards you can shut down all your PC's on the network at anytime.

Ip configuration

Does your friend and yours IP settings the same?To clarify you would have 2 types of connection from your ISP.The 1st type of connection is that the authentication happens in the modem through the PPPOE UN/PW and the IP configurations are done in the modem and as such wont require to configure the IP settings when the windows is reinstalled.However the 2nd type of DSL service is that the IP settings are done in the windows and does not require any PPPOE username and password to authenticate.You would have to verify with your ISP which type of service you have and if you require any change order to make it the same way your friend has.

Please let me know any clarification you would require for this issue.

Switching DSL Modems

Your dsl line stays the same. you're only changing your dsl equipment.

if you are not able to go online using the 327w, you might need to have it configured depending on the type of connection that you have. if you are using PPPoE (which means you enter a username and password on the modem to connect to verizon) you need your 327w configured for pppoe. but if you are using DHCP connection, any modem or routers should be plug and play.

Most verizon customers from the west coast uses DHCP while those on the east coast uses PPPoE.

You can call tech support to make sure which type of connection you are using.

Cant connect to internet using linksys with att dsl modem

Your router was configured for Cable Modem which is usually DHCP
Now you need to change it for DSL modem. This means you have to change WAN setting from DHCP to PPPoE and enter your Username and Password for DSL service (should have been provided by your ISP)
Some DSL modems that are also routers need to be accessed directly first and have their configuration changed to "passthrough". This means that DSL modem should not be handeling PPPoE login but rather should let your router do the login.

Sounds link you need to setup PPPoE on your router. Not knowing who your ISP is, Netgear has this website that lists a lot of ISPs support on setting PPPoE up. that is located here: Netgear

If you can't find the info there, basically what you need to do is on your router, typically the main page, you might see an area that lists: DHCP, Static, PPPoE (or something similar). What you need to do, is select the PPPoE option and put your ISP login information (that is on your DSL modem now) there should be a connect or login button once your finished. Once that is done, your router does the logging in, instead of the modem.

Setting up a wireless router

first you have to check the ip address of the dsl modem you used and see to it that it is not the same ip address of the router to avoid conflict. the default ip address of dlink router is in case your dsl modem has the same ip address with the router, you have to change firs the ip address of the router before connecting the router to your dsl modem.
next you need to know your internet connection whether it is DYNAMIC or PPPOE, depending on how your internet provider configured your modem. for PPPOE connection, you have to know the USERNAME and PASSWORD that your provider provides you.
good luck.
