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.

    How do you configure on each router to make it works? Here's my settings:



    Main Router: DIR-628

    IP: 192.168.2.1

    SM: 255.255.255.0

    Wireless channel 4 in G mode

    GW: Cable Modem for internet



    2nd Router: 2wire 2701hbg

    IP: 192.168.1.1

    SM: 255.255.255.0

    Wireless channel 7 in G mode.



    Is there anything else I need to configure? If so please describe. Thks

It is possible but the routers have to be on separate channels

You haven't mentioned who is your Internet Service Provider (generally motorola modems are used by cable connections). After connecting the cables properly, you power cycle the modem and the router if this is a cable connection. However, if this is a DSL connection you better contact the ISP and fetch further information. Please contact me again if you need further information.

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

Resetting router to factory defaults should fix this.
NOTE: Reseting the router to the factory defaults will delete any changes you have made to the router, including any security settings.
You will find reset button at back of router. Near power button. Press and hold the button for 10 secs.

Ni wifi connection on the router itself, what could be the possible cause of it.


IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE IF YOU ARE HOOKING UP FROM DSL OR CABLE
IF DSL MAKE SURE ARE YOUR PHONES HAVE FILTERS
IF CABLE MAKE SURE THAT IS CONNECTED RIGHT

UNPLUG EVERYTHING
INSERT CABLE OR DSL INTO INTERNET SLOT ON ROUTER
THEN PLUG THE ROUTER IN LET ALL THE LIGHTS COME ON
THEN TURN YOUR COMPUTER ON AND SEE IF IT REQ THE CONNECTION IF THE LIGHTS ARE ON THE ROUTER MOST LIKELY COMPTER IS NOT CONNECTING TRY CONNECTING WITH ETHERNET CABLE

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

RE: My posted. Connecting DSL/Router to DIR-628 internet router


Installing a router to work as the second one on a home networkrequires special configuration. Do the following on the second routerto ensure it (and the devices attached) function properly:1. Connect as local device or bridge - If connecting the second router via Ethernet cable, plug it into one of the LAN ports on the first router. If connecting the second router wirelessly, ensure the second router is set for client mode.Note that some home wireless routers do not support client mode; thesemust be connected by cable. Check your router documentation for detailson its client mode configuration support.

2. Check / change IP address - Most home network routers use a default IP addresssetting. Often, these default IP addresses will not work in a tworouter environment. Check the second router's IP address value andreset it if necessary to work within the valid address range of thefirst router (and to not conflict with any other device on the network).

3. Disable DHCP- To avoid IP address conflicts between all of the devices on the homenetwork, only one of your two routers should assign addresses via DHCP. All mainstream routers provide an option to disable DHCP as part of the router's configuration screens.

(My netgear router supports client mode. The 2wire supports bridged and router mode. My 2wire is the main router. I set up my netgear using my laptop. Once you change the address on the router.. You will only be able to directly access through the main router to the 2701.)

Configure your 2701 IP address to a static address in the 192.168.2.1 range and diable DHCP. Only 1 router can run the DHCP service. To disable Dhcp on the 2701.... log on to 2701> click on home network>advanced settings>uncheck enable DHCP>Next section is Public routed subinterface...Check enable and Aout Firewall Open>Input your main router address and mask>save config..

This worked with the Netgear router.. May not with your router. Good Luck! Hope this helps!
