I AM UNABLE TO CONNECT A DSL MODEM AND ROUTER THROUGH SWITCH. AT A TIME I AM ABLE WORK ONLY INTERNET OR LOCAL NETWORK??? PLZ GIVE SOLUTION


Set the modem back to how it was to start with. Plug it into a computer and make sure it is working.
Plug the modem into the routed port on the router. This is labelled ADSL on the one I have here, yours may be different - regardless it's the one that goes to the outside world.
Set the router to factory and plug the LAN side into the switch. Let the router handle DHCP for the LAN and the modem provide DHCP for the router. This results in two layers on NAT, but it's easier than figuring out how to put your modem into bridge mode.

Trying to access DSL with HP modem


If you mean you're trying to use DSL service with the modem that came built into an HP computer, you can't. That modem is for dial-up Internet service only, or if you want to use your computer as a fax machine along with a scanner or all-in-one printer.

To connect to DSL, you'll need a DSL modem. If you're just getting service, your service provider should have supplied one. (Actually, I think you have the option now of ordering DSL service and not getting a modem if you already have one. Maybe you did this.) The DSL modem has a telephone-type jack to connect to the phone line (same as on the HP modem), but the connection to your computer is through a different, larger, jack usually labeled "Ethernet" or "Computer". If you don't have a modem, you can easily find them for sale. You can buy new ones at retailers who sell computers, and many used ones are available on eBay or on your local Craig's list.

Another possibility is that you already have a DSL modem and are asking how to connect an addtional computer. If this is so, you don't connect the new computer to the DSL phone line. Instead, you need to share the network connection coming from the modem. This is done using a router, which allows several computers to use the same connection either through a cable or wirelessly. The DSL modems typically supplied now have the router built in, with 4 connections for wired computers and wireless capability as well. If your modem is an older one intended for a single connection only, it will have just one network connection. If this is the case for you, you'll need to supply your own router.

I just switched from cable modem to dsl modem..dsl modem gets on the internet when connected directly to computer..once connected to router doesnt connect to internet


Your new ISP is DSL. the router was working before with the cable modem. The settings for the cable and DSL ISP are different. Now your computer is working when you connect it directly to the DSL modem. that means the modem is working.
The DSL modem works on 2 different modes.
You will need to check which mode is your modem working on and according to the settings of your modem you will need to set up the router.
To change the settings of the router, you will need to open the set up page of the router.

I'm having problems tring to connect to ATT HS DSL, flashing green light but can not connect to internet, what settings on DSL-2640B do I need???


If you connect the computer directly to the modem, does it work?
If that works then the modem is working.
Now connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
You will need to open the set up page of the router to check the settings of the router.
You can set up the router without the CD also.
It is very easy.

Driver


not sure why you will need USB drivers for your adsl2+ modem/ wireless router and 4 port LAN switch. It would help you had provided the model number.

The device uses a LAN ethernet port to connect to the computer. You will need atleast one computer to be on the LAN port for setting it up. Once setup is complete you can use wireless connection for every computer.

The user manual & drivers or the DSL-2740B which appears similar to your product description
http://www.dlink.com.au/tech/Download/download.aspx?product=DSL-2740B

Not sure if you need these. Your computers will need LAN or wireless drivers to connect to this DLINK modem/ router.

Good luck

Current modem working fine with ATT DSL. I want to install a second modem (2wire) by direct connection to same DSL phone connection (in different room). I have hooked up other modem, filled in user ID and...


Is that second location also a DSL line? You may have to consult with AT&T to see if the DSL line runs to that second location.

What are you trying to accomplish? By adding a second modem, you essentially create two separate networks. Why not use a switch and connect it to the first modem, which would allow you to connect more PCs.

Trying to connect 4 dsl routers to 48 port switch


Are you trying to set up router ?
You can set up your router manually, without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.
