Question about Computers & Internet
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

If the switch doesn't have an "uplink port" or autodetect the port speed, then you will need a crossover cable to connect the DLINK to the Surecom switch. If this is the same issue then rate this one so it can be closed. If not then let me know how it goes. Good Luck

You don't need no steenking software, it's in the box. You do need a country, because it's not on the U.S. website.
Look at your local IP address (ie from DOS type IPCONFIG). The gateway address is 192.168.0.1? Open up Internet Explorer and type that address into the address bar. It should open up a screen asking for a username and password. Here's where the manual might help (www.dlink.com) and do international.
Dlink routers tend to have the same instructions, so here's the help page from the website on a 714 router to establish WEP encryption.
Hope this helps.

Do you need to see the desktop or just share folders from each other? If the latter then you need to do the following:
Use Windows Explorer and select a folder you want to share. Right click and select sharing and security.
On the sharing tab click on Share this folder. Enter a share name ( I like to enter the PC name _folder name; Rick1_Downloads)
Click on Permissions. If your ok with everyone using the PC's and Laptops having access then highlight Everyone and click on Full Control.
Do this on each PC and Laptop.
That should be it or darned near close.

Step 1. Before you open ports in your router, set the computer (or the device) which requires
ports to be opened for, with a static IP address. You can choose any IP address from the
range of addresses you are using on your local network, as soon as it is not used by any other
device. The default range is from 10.1.1.2 to 10.1.1.254. In our example we are using
Windows XP: Control Panel > Network Connections > Local Area Connection > Properties >
Internet protocol TCP/IP > Properties
Windows Vista: Control Panel > Network and Internet > [Network and Sharing Centre] > View
Network Status and Tasks > View Status > Properties > Internet Protocol v4 > Properties
Select the “Use the following IP address” option:
IP address: 10.1.1.99
Subnet mask: 255.0.0.0
Default Gateway: 10.1.1.1 (your router’s address)
DNS: 10.1.1.1 and 188.8.131.52 (or whichever your provider is using)
Now open the necessary ports in your router and redirect the traffic to the 10.1.1.99 address.
Here are the steps:

Step 2. Open your web browser and enter the IP address of the router (http://10.1.1.1). Enter
user name and password (default username “admin” and password is “admin”).
Step 3. Click on Advanced at the top and then click on LAN Clients.

Step 4. You will need to add a LAN Client (the address of your computer or a device) into the
router before you can open any ports. Type in the IP address of the Computer/Device (the
one you assigned in Step 1). You can specify the name of this workstation under Host Name
(optional). Click Add and then Apply.
Step 5. Go to Advanced > Virtual Server (Port Forwarding). There is a list of pre-set ports in
the router which you can choose from.

Step 5a. If your specific application is not listed there, you can add the necessary ports
yourself. Select the “User” Category and click on Add button below.
Step 5b. Enter a name for this entry under Rule Name. Then select the necessary protocol. If
there is a range of ports to open, specify the starting port under Port Start and the ending port
under Port End. If you need to open just one port, specify this port number in all fields
including the Port Map. Click Apply.

Step 6. Go back to Advanced > Virtual Server. Under LAN IP select your LAN Client (which
you added in Step 4). Select the Category and the desired Rule or select “User” Category
and you should see the rule which you have created in Step 5b. Select it and then click on
Add > to move it into the Applied Rules section. Click Apply.
Step 7. To save the new settings into the router's memory go to Tools > System. Click on
Save and Reboot button. The router will save the settings and restart.
