You're talking about just hooking your PC directly into the cable/dsl modem?
If so, you should be able to just unplug the LAN cable from the router and hook it into your modem.
(Most XP/Vista installs are set to seek out a DHCP server to get an IP. Your home router was your DHCP server before, hence the 192.168.x.x addresses.)

Has your modem been hard reset recently? if so, it may require that you bridge the modem out to work with the router- ESP. if you use Verizon DSL. If so, contact your ISP, and ask for assistance in bridging out the modem.
I've tried: Having the router get an IP automatically from the modem. Changing the router's IP address. Having the modem pass PPPoE authentication to the router. Bridging the modem. Power cycling the guts out of everything.
you need to reset the modem, look for the reset button of your modem, it just beside the port for your power cord.if you dont see anything like it. call 2wire for them to assist you for unbridging the modem
Hello my friend,
You can disable all routing functions for your Home Portal. I never advise this as a course of action as it typically causes more issues than it resolves - so procede at your own risk.
- use the button on the back to reset to factory state (hold for 30 seconds) - browse to gateway.2wire.net/mdc - click on configure under broadband link - set ATM PVC search to disabled - set connection type to direct IP - click on configure services under the advanced heading - take note of the text under "If you want to connect to the gateway when it is in bridged mode" - un-check the enable routing box - submit your settings
Sounds to me that the router is not recieving the signal from the Modem. Some Modems require you use a 'cross-over cable' to plug in a router like that (from modem to WAN on D-link). Make sure the IP address of the D-Link is on the same subnet as the Modem, i.e. the cable modem is preset with an ip address scheme (proabably 192.168.0.1 or something) and your router should have the same 192.168.0.x address depending on what the modem is).
Another thing you can try would be to "bridge" the modem to the router.
It will not extend your wireless range. If you connect your spare Belkin F5D7633 to your Belkin F5D8631, one of them would have to be set to "bridge mode" or a pass through modem so that there will be no conflicts as to which modem will receive the ip address from the network. If you set your modem/router to bridge mode, it would disable its wireless function because it will only be a pass-through device.

If it had wireless before, go into the control panel click on network connections and you sould see all you internet connections. Usually one wired and one wireless. Sometimes a third one depending on your computer. Right click on the wireless one and check you "bridge connection" and if unbridged bridge it, If bridge un bridge it. Then try you wireless, make sure you are near a router for a strong signal. If it does not change go back into the control panel and set your bridge connection where it was. This would tell you it is something else.
connect the Dlink router to the modem ActionTech->( wan port )Dlink. Login to the Router web-interface and go to STATUS & check the WAN IP address which would be modem ip address. if there is an ip address, do ping test on your computer to that ip address and see you are getting successful ping results. If so, the ping yahoo.com and see there is an successful ping for yahoo. - If there is No WAN IP in STATUS Page, Connect the computer directly to the modem and let me know the ip address you are getting. Can I know your ISP name please?
