Re: Paradyne Dsl Modem

Hi, If I understand you right, what you want is to use your Paradyne 6211 modem to share the Internet connection to 2 PCs. One is connected through the USB and the second through Ethernet port. Tried it on a Siemens 4200 and a Prolink Hurricane 9000, both worked and can be done. To be sure, the IP settings of the PC connected via Ethernet was set to manual configuration. In your case try IP, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, DNS Servers - whatever your ISP are using. You of course can try and see if it works in your modem. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

not sure why you will need USB drivers for your adsl2+ modem/ wireless router and 4 port LAN switch. It would help you had provided the model number.

The device uses a LAN ethernet port to connect to the computer. You will need atleast one computer to be on the LAN port for setting it up. Once setup is complete you can use wireless connection for every computer.

The user manual & drivers or the DSL-2740B which appears similar to your product description

Not sure if you need these. Your computers will need LAN or wireless drivers to connect to this DLINK modem/ router.

Good luck

Need drivers for DSL-G624t wireless router

If you're connecting to the router by ethernet cable or wirelessly, you dont need drivers unless you mean the drivers for the ethernet adapter and/or wireless adpater in your PC.
If this is what you're after, your PC's manufacturer's website is the best place to look if you dont have them on CD/DVD.

If you're connecting to the router by USB port, then the D-Link webiste should have the drivers for downloading.

Basically if your Internet service is DSL or cable it's just a plug and play. Just plug the computer to the modem once the Internet access has been activated by your ISP and your computer should automatically get connection from the modem.

Trouble with paradyne or linksys

Just saw your post, so please accept my apologies for being almost a month late in responding, as I only joined this service on March 26th.

1. When a modem has both usb and ethernet, only ONE of the two should be used as most isp modems will allow one or the other.

2. Your Vonage should be discreet and not intermingled with the rest of your system. It would be better to connect the Vonage to a router, and not the router to the Vonage. iow, do not connect the Vonage modem between the isp's modem and your router.

3. denigration of service or slowdown is typical with VOIP if more than 2 systems whether telephone or other systems are connected, due to the ringer voltage splitting that occurs when you put more units on the Vonage, or any other Voip modem. One ISP solves this by providing separate outputs for Voip and Ethernet.

Observation of these rules should speed up your system.

Using both USB and Ethernet port to connect to the Internet

Hi; I have used it with both ethernet and usb connections at the same time. I have never used the bridge, but I use it at home.

Try this ( I have XP SP3): Right-click on the monitors where the clock is (lower right corner), select "Open Network Connections". Go to the LAN connection and r-click "Properties". On the "general" tab select "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)". There you select "Obtain IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server automatically" then click "Ok" until exit. Either Shut Down or Restart the PC. Check if this work.

check if your computer is getting a valid address from your modem. if so, try to ping the modem's address and check if you'll have replies. if it'll reply, try to disable any antivirus software and firewall installed on the computer or try to use another browser. if not, check i the computer is properly connected to the modem, try to use another port or another known working cable. also try to use another computer for isolation.
hope this'll help you with your concern.

Connection of Paradyne 6211 to iMac (OS 10.5) via Ethernet


If you connect by using LAN port (RJ 45) you don't have to install driver. However USB connection will require driver. Do you have Ethernet adapter installed to you iMAC? If you have it will be resolved easily without using USB port. Check the following link for connection instructions

If physical connection is successful you can go to internet browser type and check your modem's settings. Please post if you need further assistance

Good Luck

You would have to refer to the manual to set up the usb connection, so as the router knows that the main pc is connecting via the usb and not the rj45 port. The only other thing may be that your router will recognise when you are connecting with the usb port, as long as it's the pc with the modem drivers on.
