D-Link DIR-628 router, i've lost internet connection to the PC!
Hi, here's the situation. i have a PC and modem upstairs in a two story home. Downstairs i have a playstation 3, that i've wanted to get an internet connection on for a while. I've never had any problems with the internet connection on the PC. Yesterday i bought the DIR-628 router and set it up upstairs. After battling with the router and some DNS error problems, i finally was able to get a connection on the ps3. Now upstairs, i can't browse the internet at all because it tells me there isn't a connection! I'm not sure if it's just my PC not having wireless capabilities or what, but i'm very frustrated. In order to use the internet as I am now, i have to unplug the internet cable that runs from the PC to the router, into the modem, and i lose the connection downstairs. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. =D

If this is the case, there is no problem with the router. the problem is with the modem.MAke sure that the cable from the modem goes into the WAN(Internet) port of the router.And also, what kind of internet are you using? is your router set up properly to work with your provider? Is there any problems when you connect your pc to the modem directly with the cable, or does the problem occur only in the wifi connection?
Plug your internet into the router then, the router to the computer. Go to your network settings and run the network setup. This will change the settings in windows to except the router into the network. You may have to restart the computer. This should give you internet access to your computer through your router.
Shutdown your PC. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem. Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line. This is if you have a cable service provider. If you have DSL, the router needs to be configured with PPOe.

power off pc and router and modem power on pc then modem then router wait se if it works if not hit reset button on modem should be a little hole in modem hit reset button with paper clip or ink pin somehting that will fit in reset hole hope this helps good luck!!
I am assuming that you can connect to your router's web based interface (192.168.0.1).
On a PC LAN wired to the router, open a browser;
Log-in username/admin and password/(blank);
Go to Tools > Misc and the option to select the WAN speed (bottom);
Lock the speed down on the WAN port of your router to 10Mbps (Some versions do not have this feature).
Hope this works for you.
If not pls post back with your modem brand/model. You may also want to log the IP settings (IP Add, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, DNS Servers) of the PC that is directly connected to the modem when you can access the Internet when not using the router.
Good luck and kind regards.
