I had my DSL disconnected. I am using cable internet w/Comcast. I've DIR-628 connected to Mot-SB5101 Cable Modem. This setup is working fine. However I'd like to use my old DSL/Router 2wire 2701 to connect to my DIR-628 wirelessly. Reason to print only. Is it possible? Please help.

When conecting it way ask for a WEP password which is located on the router. I hope this will help you.

I purchased a D-Link Wireless N 150 Router, Dir 600L. I am unable to setup the same. Do I need a Modem also to setup this router or I can setup without a modem?


You can setup a wireless network without a modem. It will allow you to share printers, files ect. The modem is required for an internet connection only. The modem basically translates the Ethernet traffic in to a signal that can be carried over your respective service, DSL over a POTS line or broadband over a coax cable. The word modem stands for MOdularDEModular note the word MODEM in there.

I have followed instructions (several times) to connect my dlink router dir-615 and once I unplug the ethernet cable and attach to dlink (blue slot 1) and plug in power to the router....it no longer can...


the blue socket should be connected to your modem, it is this modem that supplies the internet for your router to distribute to your computers so if you disconnect the blue cable from your router you are disconnecting the internet

Lost cd rom to install dlink dir-628, how do i obtain the software to reinstall it?


You do not have to use the cd. :


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.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Happy New Year!

Thanks, Joe

Can't connect to the internet through the router. It worked fine until my ISP came out and changed the modem. I can connect with modem connected to Mac but not with modem connected to router.


If this is a cable modem, you need to restart the modem every time you change whatever is connected to it. Every device has a MAC address. Cable modems lock onto a MAC address that is connected to it and will only communicate with that device until you reset it by restarting. Some Comcast modems have a battery pack that must be removed in addition to unplugging it from the wall.

If it's DSL them maybe there is a username/password entered in the management console of the router.

Router communication with cable modem


If you change service providers, connection type and hardware, then all your previous connection settings will not work, and they'll have to all be reconfigured.

Have you been given a new modem/router (combo unit)?

Did you previously have a separate modem and a separate router?

Do you connect your xbox via WiFi?

Go back to basics now. If your computers connect fine, then connect the xbox using an ethernet cable and see if it works. Then try wireless.

My Motorola Sb5101 modem will not let me access the internet, the send light constantly flashes and i can't attain any internet connection.


If you have the following lights :
Power light - on
Receive light - flashing
Send light - flashing
Online light - off
PC/Activity - on
Standby - off
Then your Network Access is OFF - modem is successfuly registered but Network Access Control is disabled via DOCSIS configuration file.

Call your internet service provider....

connect the the ethernet cable to the WAN port of the modem.

the connection should be:

Now use another Ethernet cable plug it in on the LAN port1 and the other end to your computer.

Access the configuration page of your router and set the wireless setting inside your DI-624 router.

Cable modem or DSL? If cable modem without phone service, modem power has to be unplugged 2 minutes before the router is connected in order to release the mac address from memory. If cable modem with phone service, same thing applies, but battery backup must also be disconnected.
DSL modem may require PPPoE setup into router.
