Re: Sympatico & DLink DI-704P
It usually is simple, and hopefully the answer is as well.
If you haven?t already done so unplug the modem and the router. Wait for a few seconds and then plug the modem in followed by the router. Reboot your PC and try the Internet again.
If it still doesn?t work then I would try doing a hard reset of your router and reconfigure using the setup process outlined by the manufacturer. If that still doesn?t work let us know and we?ll continue ?.

1. if you have a power adapter connected to this router it may have burn out when restoring power several times in the way you shut down. 2. When visiting the manufacturer website and researching your unit I found that the unit is "discontinued" and there is no other support for it. 3. I suggest that a new router be purchase with update technology to get the most from your internet experience.
I can recomend to your network setup is WPS54GU2 Wireless-G PrintServer for USB 2.0********************************Before configuring the wireless settings of the printserver, make sure to know the following settings on your D-link router: SSID, and wireless security. Configuring the Wireless Settings on the Printserver The wireless settings of the printserver can be configured using its web-based utility. Make sure the printserver is set to a static IP on the network. NOTE: Make sure the printserver is already working when hardwired to the Dlink router before attempting to use it wirelessly on your network. Step 1: Access the printserver’s web-based setup page. Open a web-browser such as Internet Explorer. NOTE: If you're using Mac, use Safari to access the printserver's web-based setup page. Step 2: Go to the address bar and enter the IP address you've assigned to the PrintServer. NOTE: To assign the PrintServer a static IP address, click here. Step 3: When the printserver setup page appears, click Wireless.
it doesn't matter whether the other computer is set to static and the other one is set to dynamic as long as both computers are getting/using valid ip addresses.
if i got it right. 1 computer is connected to the LAN port of the router and the other computer is connected to the WAN port. if so, you need to connect both computer to the LAN ports and the WAN port of the router should be connected to the modem that you are using.
if the physical connection is correct, check how you are connecting to the internet through the modem. if you can access the internet from the modem without configuring anything, you just need to power cycle. turn off everything then turn on the modem first, wait for the lights on the modem to turn on properly before turning on the router then turn on the computers.
hope this'll help you but if not, just provide the following:
(2)brand/model of the modem:
so i can help you further.
1. Just connect one of the LAN ports of the DI-704P to a LAN port of your WRT54G. Try using a standard network cable. If the port status lights does not turn on on both sides when you connect the cable, use a "crossover" cable. Important: leave the DI-704P WAN port empty.
2. Disable the DHCP server on your DI-704P, your WRT54G will be the DHCP server.
3. Assign a static IP address to you DI-704P, different from your WRT54G. Example, if your WRT54G has 192.168.2.1, you may assign 192.168.2.4 to your DI-704P. Make sure that the IP address you assign is outside the DHCP range configured in your WRT54G and that the subnet mask is identical on both.
You will then be able to use your print server from any wired and wireless computer and the remaining LAN ports both on the WRT54G and DI-704P.
I think ya gonna find ya modem has gone "toes up"... It may well be in the power supply section (PSU)... I guess ya could try a "Shotgun" replacement of all the PSU components.. If this don't "Fix" it.. then I am sorry but ya up for a replacement.. which may be the best option in any event?
to do a hard reset, hold for about 5 seconds (don?t hold too long) and then release. (Or, release when M1 and M2 flash at the same time.)
The M1 amber light flashing means that the system is active.
Go to your routers settings by typing 192.168.0.1 and make sure that enable DHCP is showing and that the network adapter cards in your pc's are set to obtain an ip address automatically, to do this start>control panel>network connections, then on your network adapter ensure it says enabled, if so right click on it and select properties, go to TCP/IP line and click properties and make sure obtain ip address automatically is ticked, ok it and restart pc and see if you get a connection.
