I'm trying to set up two computers with DSL,but when we the tech tried to walk me thru it, did not work. Once the router was hooked up, couldn't get online. The tech is saying the router is faulty, but it worked just fine with Comcast. Switching from Comcast because cost keeps going up and going up again next year. Is D-Link compatible with DSL?
Re: AT&T FastAccess DSL & D-Link not working for me
Yes D-link is compatible with DSL. What you need to do is call your ISP and have them bridge your DSL modem. Next you need to verify your username and password for your internet account. Next call d-link and have them help you change your router's setting to work with PPPoE connections.

make sure the dsl modem is in bridge mode. you do this by connecting directly to the modem then accessing modem configuration page. after doing this connect the way everything was before. now go to router admin page, then setup tab at the top, then choose internet, manual setup. in the place where its says my internet connection is select PPPoE. then put in your dsl username, password and etc. save settings. this should fix the problem
usually routers are setup using DHCP... on your second computer. try going to
"your LAN connection",\
Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) (should be checked)
Obtained Ip address automatically should be selected
Obttained Dns server automatically should be selected.
then click OK, OK to save settings...
if your router is not setup as a DHCP,it would require you to setup your ip address manually... let me know if this dont work, so i can help u setup manually...
if it helps, try comparing the settings of your pc1 and pc2 (the network connection settings)
1. Make sure you have the latest firmware
2. Restore to factory settings first. This helped me with stacked ppp session.
3. Setup your connection according to ISP
4. If you have problem, install Router Commander from www.routercommander.com
5. Setup router to send syslog to your PC
6. Check syslog messages about the clue what's going on
. Make sure the router is going from the modem, to the port marked WAN, on the 624. You can test the cable, by plugging it directly into you computer, from the modem, if you want to. Disconnect the power from your modem, your router, and turn off your computer Wait 1 min. Turn on the Router, wait three full min's. Power up the 624, and wait one min. Power up the PC. Reason for the long wait on the modem is that it has to get data from the internet, to give to the router. If that don't hwlp, try changing the cable from the PC to the router, to a different port. If all that don't work, try resetting the router by gentley pressing a straightened out paperclip into the reset hole in the back. Hold it for 30 sec. If that fail resetting it, try holding it in while you unplug the 624 and plug it back in. If it resets, go thru the first steps to set it up again. If all that fails, your 624 may be bad. Had that happen to me. The steps I listed brought it back to life for about 2 months, and it died completely. Good Luck!
Step 1 - If one of your computers has a working ethernet port try wiring the computer to the DSL-G604T and see if the internet is working -- this should eliminate any issues between the router and the ISP. If this works and you know how you should check the router's configuration to assure it has not changed.
Is a link to the product info -- the installation guide and the Product manual if you do not have them may be useful. I will continue with additional steps depending on the outcome of the above actions. If you cannot check the router configuration yourself I will try to walk you through it based on the manuals.
Yes, you can use wireless router with the modem. I guess the actiontech DSl router that you have is also Wireless one. If so, you can use just the DSL router for wireless connection. If you really want to use Dlink router with it, Connect the ( WAN port ) of the Dlink router to the ( LAN Port ) of the Action tech modem [ modem(LAN)-->Dlink(WAN) ]. Once you do this connection, better to do power cycle ( unplug the pwr to the dlink first, then, disconnect the pwr to action tech - wait 1min and plug the pwr to modem, wait for DSL light to be solid , then put the pwr back to dlink ). Make sure DSL light on the modem solid, internet light & WLAN light on the link glowing. - Make Hardwire connection between the computer to Dlink and check the ip address on the computer whether it acquires the ip address from Dlink and then check the internet connection on the computer, it has to work. if computer not getting ip from dlink, try restarting computer. - If hardwire connection on the dlink works fine and check the wireless connection.

The first step to try is to reboot both the router and the cable/DSL modem.
Turn off your computer, and unplug the router and the modem from the mains. Wait one full minute, then plug the modem back in. Wait until the lights stop blinking (until it indicates a steady connection). Once that is complete, plug the router back in, and wait until it also stops blinking. Once the router and modem are both back on, then turn your computer back on and check to see if you have a connection.
If that doesn't work, then take the router out of the picture -- plug a computer directly into the ethernet port on the modem. You should definitely have an Internet connection at that point. If it works, the problem is in the router. If it doesn't, you'll need to call Virgin Media's help desk for assistance.
