Want to use Dlink DI-514 with Qwest modem to hardwire 2 computers

Hi have an older dlink di-514 that I want to use with an Actiontec GT701 modem that I get my Qwest broadband through to hardwire my new computer to the old one long enough to transfer files.

Can I do this?

    I don't have the wireless version of this modem and I don't need wireless. Just want to wire the 2 computers together for a month or so.

    I will try your method of reassigning the DI514 a new IP and then try again right after I get some new cable as I think that may be part of the problem as I suddenly can see the WAN on the DLink and couldn't before :) Can also see this puter from the other but neither connects to the Internet through the modem as of yet.

    Any specifics about how to reassign the DI a new IP address?

    Yeo that's the one but I took your advice and bought a cheap switch while I was out getting the cable. The switch was less than $25 and works beautifully.

    Yes that's the modem.

    Sorry so slow. Had this working straight through a switch but I had to reformat the HD on the new computer (another story) and now it isn't working at all again. Didn't change any of the settings when I set it up again so don't know yet what I've done wrong.

Believe it or not, Actiontec modems from Qwest are setup as a router already (even though ports are missing from it). You should use a switch instead of another router. Otherwise you will have to configure the DI-514 to act as a switch rather than a router. This is done by assigning a new starting IP address into your DI-514. By default both routers use 192.168.0.1 as the default. You will have to plug the DI-514 seperately into a computer (to take it off the network) and assign a new starting IP address for the DI-514 such as 10.150.1.1 for example. Then you will be able to get it work. I would strongly recommend using a switch instead and turn the wireless on the modem itself (this is why the modem is the router). It will save you some headaches if the power goes out.

    It's been awhile since I have set one up. Look in the configuration section and see if there is a way in there to assign an IP address to it.



    I had to do this in my office. It's a pain. I'm used to seeing Qwest giving out the wireless model. Is this the modem you have:

No need to install the dlink on the imac. All you need to do is connect the modem first the dlink. (Modem connected to Internet or WAN port of the dlink). Now if they are connected, your imac should be plugged in to port 1 of dlink, and your PC to port 2. That should do it.

D-link 614+ will not connect with Qwest M1000 modem


Well what everybody really doesnt know is that if Qwest provided you with a modem named Actiontech that modem has the same ip address of router so just change routers ip address to 172.16.0.1 and subnet mask to 255.255.0.0 and the problem should be solved.Im a product specialist for dlink.

Connecting 2 computer thru DI-514


Well I believe wat ya need to do is simply obtain a NEW "Account" with NEW Logon & Password with a NEW Internet Service Provider. Then you set up the modem to connect to the new ISP, at the NEW ISP's address, with the NEW Password & Logon. When you got the modem ya should have got a "Setup" CD that should walk ya thru the connection routine... Below is a link for a "Users Manual" that should help you get connected. ftp://ftp.dlink.de/di/di-514/documentation/DI-514_qig_en_Quick-Install.pdf
