How to configure a LinkSys router, D-link router and netgear Routers in DSL and Wireless?

Well first and foremost those are three different manufacturers you have there and there are several ways in setting up your routers for DSL internet service. The very first thing you need to know is how do you connect your computer when its connected directly to the A\DSL modem, some modem acts like a router as well if that is the case then the only thing you need to verify is for the router and modem to have different IP address range(normally routers will have a default IP address of 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.01 depending on the manufacturer). Now if your computer requires a dialer(normally it will show as broadband connection on network connections) where your username and password from you ISP is saved then you need to setup PPPoE on your router to perform this you either use the setup CD that came with it or manually configure PPPoE by accessing the administration page of the router using your browser(Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Safari). And lastly there is a static connection where you need to assign a specific IP address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and DNS Servers provided by your ISP on the computer or router which is as it say's you need to configure the IP address and the rest of the stuff that they provide but normally static IP is more commonly being used by large companies that requires a fix IP for their VPN and remote connections.
