Do you have the Internet connected to the Internet port in the back of the DLINK? You will have to configure the DLINK for internet access. Open a web browser to your DLINK and check on the configuration under internet-setup. Select the type of internet connection you have i.e. DHCP, PPPoE, Static, etc. Once that is set up, you should have access to the internet like before.
1.) The setup needs changing
2.) first off the dss-24 is a network switch not a router
3.) all of your pc equipment should be pluged into that device.
4.) chose one port as an uplink to your att modem
I think your problem is that the new modem is only giving out one ip address. So what ever first pc is turned on that is the one that grabs the address.
5.) you will most likly need a router to take the one ip address assigned via att then dole out additional ones. Remember the dss-24 is not a router. It simply connects everyone together. Each device still needs an ip address given from somewhere. Your old cable modem probibly did that but your new att dsl most likly does not.hence the new router will do that.....
to set it up do the following
2.) Find out the ip setup needed for your dsl service
A.) gateway ip
B.) primary & secondary dns server ip`s
C.) subnet mask
3.) get into the setup of your new router and then plugg in
all of these values using a fixed if address in the router
4.) connect routers wan port to one of the modems port. u may have to use a cross cable or straight look at the link lites to find out if they are talking to each other
5.) make sure that the routers lan side is setup for DHCP
6.) connect one lan port off the router to an uplink
of the dss-24. Then reboot everything
7.) viola it should all work internet on evey machine and file sharring.
It probably isn't an overload the flashing lights are probably the new device doing a broadcast trying to find something that will tell it how to configure its network port. This process is called DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol)
Normally your router would be automatically configured to be a DHCP server. If you have not needed to manually configure TCP/IP on your desktop computer then You have a DHCP server turned on somewhere.
Your next step should be to find out where your DHCP server is and if your new device has contacted it. Find the manual for your router and have a read about how to configure it expecialy the bits about DHCP.
Then open a command prompt. Sometimes called a dos prompt by typing cmd in the start run box and type ipconfig /all The Default gateway should tell you the IP number of your router. type that IP number into a web browser like this. http://192.168.0.1 (or what ever it is) you should see a configuration logon page for your router. The username and password will be in your users manual or just google it. From here go into the DHCP server screens and you should be able to see what IP numbers have been assigned on your network. Hopefully one of them will be your new device. Also you need to make sure that you only ever have one DHCP server on your network. PC's can also perform this function. If you have more than one running it will very dificlut to diagnose. If you see ip conflict errors this is probably the cause.
Netowrking is complex and there is lots you need to know all at once. Luckily home networks are relatively simple once you know what all the pieces are. This should give you a taste of what you need to learn about.
Yes if you consult the manual that came with the router it will show you how to connect the modem to it and setup the DSL (PPPOE)settings. Some Modems though already have the PPPOE settings within the unit and then the router would just need to be set to automatic.
You will need to configure from the PC but afterwards you can shut down all your PC's on the network at anytime.
set u r borad band router/modem to dhcp and set both system to auto detect ip address put u r boradband ethernet cable to hub and both pc in same hub that it nothing to do with configure
enjoy!!! need help for router/mode to configure tell me the model number i will tell step by step
The issue may be due to the existence of two (2) DHCP servers; 1 in the Cisco 675 and the 2nd in the DLink DI-524. You need to disable the Cisco's DHCP server function and assign static IP add & config to the DLink WAN config. This way it will only be the DLink handing out IP adds to the network.
The workaround. Install your original configuration/setting without the DLink DI-524 - PC direct to the Cisco 675 (I am assuming through Ethernet ports). Verify that indeed you are connected to the Internet and can surf the net, check e-mails, etc. Check your Networking Connection Status. Log down your PC's IP Add, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, DNS. For purposes of discussion, let's call this "N1".
After your Internet connection has been verified with your PC directly connected to the Cisco, remove the direct connection and connect the DLink DI-524 in between the Cisco router and your PC.
Log in to the DLink and modify WAN parameters using the "N1" configurations/settings.
It might be of help to disable any security (WEP WPA, MAC etc) at least while configuring.
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.
