Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have just purchased a dlink dir 635 router and am trying to set it up on my Bigpond cable broadband internet. previously I had only a Motorola SBG900 gateway between cable and pc. I now have the new router between this gateway and pc. I have "successfully configured router" but it then doesn't connect to internet. The internet works fine if I take the router out. Any help would be appreciated. regards, Frustrated.

The motorola sbg900 is acting as a router itself. I'm assuming this is what you've got? http://promo.bigpond.com/homenetwork/html_new.php

So first, go into your d-link router settings and make sure the THIRD number in the IP address is the same as your modem's ip address. This third number is the "subnet", and it must be teh same for both router and modem.

e.g. if your motorola users ip 192.168.2.1, make sure your d-link is set to 192.168.2.2. Make sure the fourth number is different, but the 1st 2nd and 3rd numbers are the same.

You can figure out what your motorola's ip is by connecting it to your computer, make sure your interent is working, and then run "ipconfig" from a command prompt window. Look for the "Default Gateway" IP. That's your motorola's ip address.

Once the IP addresses match, go into your router's settings and disable the "DHCP server".

Next, plug a network cable to go from one of the LAN ports on your motorola to one of the LAN ports on your d-link. Note that it is LAN port to LAN port. The "internet/wan" port on the d-link is never used for anything.

At this point your d-link will be operating like a "Switch", it knows it is just an extension of your existing network and it won't collide and cause you problems like it was before.

Hi i have dir-365


Try resetting the router . Press the reset button for 10 seconds and after 10 seconds unplug the power cable but continue pressing the reset button for another 30 seconds after 30 seconds plug in back the power cable and continue pressing the reset button for 10 seconds and release it after 10 seconds.

try to open an Internet browser and type in 192.168.0.1 on the address bar. It should give you the DLink page. Once you have that configure your connection.

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.

D Link DIR 635 router conection internet


Normally, all ruters are hubs as well. if you want to connect it as a hub only; try connecting only the ports minus the WAN port that goes to the DSL modem. In this case the router will behave just like a hub.

DIR-635 can't access the internet


I think you have wrong configuration of your router.

1. Some xDSL Internet Service Providers may assign a Fixed IP Address for your Broadband router. If you have been provided with this information, choose this option and enter the assigned IP Address, Subnet Mask, Gateway IP Address and DNS IP Address for your Broadband router.
2. If you connect to the Internet using an xDSL Modem and your ISP has provided you with a Password and a Service Name, then your ISP uses PPPoE to establish a connection. You must choose this option and enter the required information.

D-link DIR-635 router


Hi, 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; Type "192.168.0.1"; 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.
