Question about Computers & Internet
My D-Link router was disconnected to get floors redone. Now I want to reconnect and can't get it to work properly.
I am not very computer savvy.
Try setting it up as follows, if its not working come back on and let us know.
Plug in the modem power.
Plug in the router power.
Plug in one ethernet cable from the modem to the internet port or WAN port of the router.
If not wireless, plug a second ethernet cable into the "1" port of the router and the other end of that cable to the computers LAN or ethernet port.
Attempt to get on a website.
If this is unsuccessful, restart the modem by unplugging the power cord from the modem, wait 15 seconds, then plug it back in.
Unplug the router, wait for 15 seconds then plug it back in.
Still doesn't work?
On your computer, hit Start>Run>type cmd in the text box and hit enter.
A window will open up with a cursor.
Type ipconfig /release
Type ipconfig /renew
Try once again to access a website. If this is unsuccessful, return this site and let us know what steps you have tried.
Hope this helps.
