Connect the LAN port on the Barricade to the WAN port on your wireless router. The Barricade should be "plug-and-play",
i.e., no need to configure it. Similarly, the WAN port on the wireless-router is plug-and-play, so it should automatically get an IP-address from the Barricade.

Use an Ethernet cable to connect the network-port on your computer to one of the LAN ports on the router.
Then, start Internet Explorer, and connect to the web-server "inside" the router. Run the "Wired Network Setup Wizard", and then the "Wireless Network Setup Wizard". When you're done, then your "wireless" device(s) (iPod Touch, laptop, XBox360) should be able to make a wireless connection.

Note: no need for any CDs to "install" anything.

With a data cable where do i connect the router to the pc which ports


There is only one way to connect a router to a pc and thankfully there is only one port also. The ethernet cable you have (looks like a over sized phone jack) will plug into the lan 1 port on the back of the router and then plug into the only spot it will plug into on your pc. Just look on the back for another over sized phone jack looking receptor and you should be up and running from there.
Good Luck.

Only one computer is able to get online out of the


If you are connecting the switch to a single port broadband modem/router then you will only get one ip address, therefore only one connection to the internet. If you buy a broadband router with multiple ports, with a builtin dhcp server that gives all other pcs on the network a private ip address, then all connected pcs will get access to the internet as it is routed over the single public ip address given by the isp (even if you use a switch as well!!).

Configuring D-Link DI-524 router with airtel beetel 110bx1


Make sure you can go online directly to the airtel broadband. If internet works fine, connect the D-Link router to the Beetle. That should be going to the Internet port or WAN port of the D-link. Then your PC to port 1. Try to power cycle both devices now. Unplug the power to the router first then to the modem. Wait for 30 seconds. Power on modem first, wait for the lights to go solid, then power on the router. Check if the internet works fine hardwired. If it is, wireless should work as well. Just connect to the signal coming from the D-link.

Lost connection over wired LAN - wireless OK


A common fix is to re-set the modem. Just unplug the power to the modem for 30 seconds, then re-connect it. You could also bypass the router momentarily to see if the modem is working. Just connect one of the computers directly to the modem to verify connectivity. Your control panel should also have a utility to renew the IP address.

Port switch problem


Binz, have you tried doing a hard reset on the router, hold the reset button 30 seconds, login in will be user: admin password:admin -- if its an older model user blank password:admin, if that doesnt work, try updating your firmware, you didnt specify your router model, or I would link you to a firmware update
