Re: Is there an instruction/users manual

You can use a computer as a print server, and the router will allow other computers to connect to it. But other than that, you'll need to buy a print server separately and hook it into your router. You can set your computer up as a print server by installing the printer on the computer and setting up file and printer sharing through the network setup wizard in Windows XP, this can be found in Control Panel. Once that is set up, do the same for all other networked computers and then you will be able to install the printer on all other computers and print wirelessly (or wired) from any computer connected to the router. However, the computer the printer is physically connected to will need to stay on all the time, or at least be on when you need to print from another computer. I'm not quite sure if you can get a router with a built in print server anyway. But you can certainly achieve what you're looking to do - but perhaps not an all in one package like you were asking. I hope this helps you.

How to install router wr740n v4 without resource cd

Milan have you got the user manual as it clearly explains how to set up the router and configure it manually !
Your modem device already on your network has to have an IP address of and according to the user manual the router detects the conflict in ip address and allocates its IP address as If you IP address is different say then you will have to plug just the router in to your Laptop and alter the i/IP address to and turn off the DHCP server if the modem or existing router has DHCP. You will need to alter any existing DHCP server to have the first 10 IP addresses skipped for available leases to the computers.

Talk talk, technical assistance

How did you connect the computer to the router. If you are using a DSL modem it will have a DHCP server in it that is allocating IP addresses across your network. If you added the router to the computer via a hub or network switch what is the computers ip .
address. Remove the WI FI router - turn off P.C and then Go to cmd or dos prompt if windows based system and type in ipconfig and press enter to see if ip addresses are if they are your dlink router uses so you need to make the dlink router ip addressand subnet setting to match the Modem ip addresses of the DHCP server. Change the ip address of the dlink router to be and change the modem to allocate DHCP IP addresses from to Only do this if IP addresses are 10,0,0,1 to 10.0.0.,254 on the desktop p.c with the dsl or cable modem connected.without the router being involved. (you may need to ask the ISP what the user name and password is of the modem and it should be ip address xx.xx.xx.1 so type this into a browser to change the modem settings. or just remember if the modem is so is the Wi router from d-link and you will have an ip clash problem)
. How do you do this by ethernet connection from only the desktop directly with only the Wi FI . router. Go to a internet browser and type in the URL and then change the router ip address to match what the DSL modem DHCP issues..
Page 14 of Router instructions see
in the manual it states to use a direct ethernet connection for the setup program but you need to be connected to the internet for it to work but if the IP addresses are wrong or clashing will have no internet. You also want to set the modem as the DCHP server and disable the DHCP server in the set up of the wi fi tand set the WI FI router default gateway as the ip address of the Modem. if any DHCP server options in the WI FI router sert to the modem ip address. .

Need to allow a telnet session thru a speedstream 5660 modem/router having a public ip and allow it to connect to a private ip on the internal LAN. how do i accomplish this?

According to the user manual:
Page 16:

HTTP Web-browser Access

Most HTML browsers can be used, though Internet Explorer 4.0 or Netscape 4.0 are recommended. IE 2.0 and Netscape 2.0 and their predecessors are not supported. The HTML interface can be used to access the LAN (or WAN) IP address or it can be used with FTP to upload and download files to and from the router.

To log on to the modem via HTML:

1 Bring up your favorite web browser.

2 Enter the Ethernet IP address of the router ( or Speedstream) in the "Location" or "Address" area where you enter web page addresses.

3 Refer to "HTML Web Interface" on page 20.

Page 20:

HTML Web Interface

The HTML interface for the router first displays a page showing the current configuration of the router. The first page also provides links to the following functions:




Advanced Setup

Leads to a more detailed interface with several links that allow more in-depth configuration of functions available on the router. This interface provides the following links:

Configuration Procedures

Status and Statistics

Command List

This is where the user manual ends. I would suggest clicking "Configuration Procedures" and find the section for configuring Network Address Translation (NAT).
In that section (if it exists), you'll want to provide the private IP address of the computer running the Telnet server and forward port 23 to this IP address.
If NAT capabilities do not exist, I would consider changing the router to Gateway mode (described in the user manual) and buying your own router to handle the NAT firewall.

Print via usb with HP C3100 photosmart printer on an orange livebox printer using mac os10.6.2

As far as I know, a Livebox does not support an USB print server function, if that's what you're trying to accomplish. The USB port in the Livebox is for configuration only.
However, there might be a new model I haven't seen that has such a functionality.
