Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Limited or no connectivity to the internet. my setup: the telephone port is approx 30m from where i need internet access. Originally I had a dlink wireless router set up but was connected via cable, now however I need internet on more than 1 pc (dlink wireless does not have a great signal) so, I have added a WRT160N wireless router by attaching it to the dlink modem. Wireless signal is great but internet is virtually non existent. when i attach a laptop to the router with a cable i still get bad internet connection. If i remove the wrt160n router and plug the same laptop into the cable to the dlink modem...internet is fantastic. the wrt160n seems to be the problem...but i have simply run out of solutions, any advise? (telephone outlet ===cable===dlink modem=====cable===pc) this setup works really well but... (telephone outlet ===cable===dlink modem====cable====linksys wrt160n )))))wireless)))pc ) this setup ..no internet and no internet on the following setup (telephone outlet ===cable===dlink modem===cable===lyknsys wrt160n====cable====pc) I hope this makes sense

On which port of the D-link router did you plug the WRT160N router?

Do this setup.

Disconnect the WRT160N from D-link.

Connect a computer to port 1 of the WRT160N. Access the setup page by typing 192.168.1.1 on the address bar. you may need to type in the username and password for WRT160N. on the setup page Change the LAN IP address from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.2.1. save the settings.

Connect a cable from port 1,2,3 or 4 of the D-link router to the Internet port of the WRT160N. turn off everything then turn them on starting from cable modem>D-link >WRT160N then computer.

You should be able to access the internet.

Reset my dlink dir 615 router and now internet light stays flashing orange


Do you have the Internet connected to the Internet port in the back of the DLINK? You will have to configure the DLINK for internet access. Open a web browser to your DLINK and check on the configuration under internet-setup. Select the type of internet connection you have i.e. DHCP, PPPoE, Static, etc. Once that is set up, you should have access to the internet like before.

My router dlink i 1604 5 ports cannot connect to the internet need help


First you need to decide what type of broadbandservice you require and these are -
1. DSL that uses your existing telephone line.
2. Cable that uses a cable service and can include a cable TV service.
3. A wireless 3G network which uses the mobile/cell phone network and can beseparate or combine with your cell phone account
Note - Combined services generally offer discount pricing and may include amodem/wireless router.

If you use a wireless router with the DSL or Cable Internet service and yourlaptop has a wireless card then you can also connect to the Internet at WiFihot spots like McDonalds, Star Bucks, the Airport etc.
If you use the wireless 3G wireless broadband service, then you can access theInternet anywhere where your ISP has 3G wireless coverage. You need to checkthe service coverage area where you need Internet service.
Once you decide what type of broadband your require, then you need to checkwith the various Internet Service providers to see if they can offer and thecost of the various plans.
Note the download limits and the associated additional costs if you exceed themonthly download limits. Once you sign up with a Internet Service provider,their documentation will include setting up instructions and/or installationCD.http://www.fixya.com/support/r6165994-setting_up_broadband_connection

How to connect the wifi phone to the dlink router


Use an Ethernet cable to connect the network port on a computer (desktop/laptop/notebook) to one of the LAN ports on the router.
Start your computer's web-browser, and connect to the web-server "inside" the router.
Run the "Wireless Network Setup Wizard" to configure your wireless network, i.e., pick an SSID and a password.
Then, configure your telephone to connect to that SSID, and to use the password that you selected.

Setting up a small network using DSL and a DLink router


1.) The setup needs changing
2.) first off the dss-24 is a network switch not a router
3.) all of your pc equipment should be pluged into that device.
4.) chose one port as an uplink to your att modem
I think your problem is that the new modem is only giving out one ip address. So what ever first pc is turned on that is the one that grabs the address.
5.) you will most likly need a router to take the one ip address assigned via att then dole out additional ones. Remember the dss-24 is not a router. It simply connects everyone together. Each device still needs an ip address given from somewhere. Your old cable modem probibly did that but your new att dsl most likly does not.hence the new router will do that.....
to set it up do the following
2.) Find out the ip setup needed for your dsl service
A.) gateway ip
B.) primary & secondary dns server ip`s
C.) subnet mask
3.) get into the setup of your new router and then plugg in
all of these values using a fixed if address in the router
4.) connect routers wan port to one of the modems port. u may have to use a cross cable or straight look at the link lites to find out if they are talking to each other
5.) make sure that the routers lan side is setup for DHCP
6.) connect one lan port off the router to an uplink
of the dss-24. Then reboot everything
7.) viola it should all work internet on evey machine and file sharring.

How do I hook d link up to my comcast router so that I can use it with my laptop?


Well, you are trying to connect a router to a router, that can be difficult. Is there anyway you can exchange the Dlink router for a Wireless Access Point (AP)? If you can, you just connect the AP to the 4-port network side of the comcast router, configure the wifi settings (security, etc), and you're good to go.
If you can't exchange it, then your best bet is to connect the 4-port (or internal) side of the dlink router to the 4-port side of the comcast router. Then the dlink will be seen by the comcast router as another internal connection, and you can set the wifi settings of the dlink at that point. If you connect the dlink to the comcast router via the External port on the dlink, then you are creating two separate IP subnets, a needless complex setup.

Dlink dir 300 internet problem


First you have to make sure that you connected it correctly. the cable coming out of the modem should be connected to the single port (Internet port) at the right when facing the back of the router.

All computers that are wired through it should be able to access the internet. if one of your computers cannot access the internet you may want to check the IP address that you are getting. (go to a command prompt and type ipconfig).

If you are connecting a wireless computer check the wireless security setting which you can find at the configuration (setup) page of the router. to access the configuration page check the owner's manual.

Open Port 81 on Netgear Switch


Actually you need to open the port on the cable modem / router. Switches just pass the packets along.

Wireless access point connecting to router...


The question is how do you want to cable the netgear and what do you want to do with it.

If you cable a lan port of the DLink to the Netgear WAN port you will have two subnets that must be addressed differently. Opening up and forwarding the ports for XBox could be difficult.

I believe cabling the Netgear as an access point makes more sense. CONFIGURE THE NETGEAR BEFORE CABLING. This is achieved by wiring a lan port on the DLINK to a lan port on the netgear and ignoring the wan port on the netgear. This will involve configuring several router items that should be completed before the devices are cabled together. You will need to remember the Netgear's new network address and probably use a static IP address from a computer to configure it back into being a router after these changes, if required. Or reset the configuration to factory default following the users guide.

First the Netgear needs DHCP turned off as it will be part of the DLink's network and not a separate subnet - the DLink will perform the DHCP services.

Second the LAN side of the Netgear will need a static IP address in the DLink's network. This is where it may get tricky for you. Verify the DLink has an IP Address like 192.168.0.1 and a subnet mask like 255.255.255.0. That means all IP Addresses in your network start 192.168.0.??? where ??? is unique for your network. Verify your DLink router has a set of addresses reserved in the DHCP setup for dynamic address assignment these addresses like 192.168.0.100 to 192.168.0.199. If the above is true or with the information you extract from you DLink router you need to determine where you can create static IP addresses -- in the above case 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.99 are available. You need to assign one of those like 192.168.0.2 to the LAN side of the NetGear Router. You will probably want to assign another to the XBox == like 192.168.0.20. You will probably need to deal with opening ports or placing the XBox into the DMZ of the DLINK router which will require a static IP Address.

Now cable the devices

When considering the XBox Configuration below the DLink is the router that must be configured to allow the open ports or DMZ access to the Xbox == the netgear is not functioning as a router in this configuration.


Check out the following links on XBox Configuration if required.

The second link may be the best to start with.

The generic connection and configuration document

Speedstream 4200 setup


I have just set up 4200 with dsl - you may find that you need to reset modem before you can configure. I was told that you need either a grey or yellow cable from your laptop to the modem. I use 10.0.0.138 to access modem. The 4200 I have was from a bigpond a/c - originally configured accordingly.
