Setting up the wriless network

I have done everything the manual has told me to do, I have connected the gateway to my computer via an Ethernet cable and the network is now connected. However, it tells me to plug my broadband cable into the gateway and then connect to from my browser. The problem is that I am no longer connected to the internet as the broadband wire is plugged into the gateway i'm trying to set up, and not into my modem. What do i do?

Re: setting up the wriless network

You need to have a cable going from the modem to the gateway, and then another wire going from the gateway to the computer.

When I type the to setup router nothing happens

Have you connected your PC to one of the four LAN ports on the bank of the D-Link using an Ethernet cable?

If so, open a command prompt on your PC and type in IPCONFIG, then confirm that the details for Local Area Connection show a Default Gateway of

If there is no Default Gateway, or it shows a different value, your ethernet connection may have been manually configured: visit Control Panel -> Network Settings and double-click on Local Area Connection, then TCP/IP settings and make sure everything is set to default.

Also check your Internet Explorer Tools Menu -> Internet Options -> Connections -> LAN Settings and make sure you don't have any proxy servers turned on.

My computer has internet connection through the port on the back, but not through the router for wireless networking. All the connections from the modem to the router and further to the computer are...

So, just to confirm:
PC via ethernet has internet connection OK?
The router IP is
The PC ethernet IP is 192.168.1.n (n is not 1)
If you unplug the ethernet cable, you no longer have a connection.

If these are correct, did you previously have wireless internet working? If so, just reboot the router (unplug its power).

If not, you'll need to check the wireless settings in the router with those of your wireless network card, making sure you are using matching security settings (WPA-PSK, AES256, matching 'key').

To access the router, browse to (ensure your ethernet is plugged in). If you haven't changed from the default login details, you'll find them in the router manual.

Be sure your laptop is on the same network as the router (192.168.1.x) X being different from the routers address. Connect via the Ethernet cable to the routers IP address. Enter the default user/password to configure.

Connect a computer to this router using an ethernet cable.
Check the IP address. The default gateway which the hard-wired computer would receive is:
Open the router interface on your computer by typing in a blank address bar in your browser.
On the left column, Under WIRELESS, select security and check the security settings made (Recommended: 64-bit WEP security)
Use this info on your wireless device to connect wireless.
For your blu-ray device to work, you have to disable FIREWALL on the router, also assign static DNS under INTERNET WAN.

Can't connect DSi with same security as comps

hello, yes i had the same problem, but i had it with many other computers, the way i solved it was going into the router settings and click the "restore default settings" then turned the router off for 15 seconds (for a fresh reboot) then when i had to set everything up again i got all my computers on the router and im able to add more without running into that same problem once again, or for a simpler solution try disconnecting the wireless on the computers and replugging them in.... that works sometimes as well

Wireless Internet stopped working. Can't reconnect.

If restarting the router and restarting computer did not work (unplug both power cables), then you need to log into the router and check network settings.

To log into router type the router IP on internet explore bar, then enter user id and password.
You find details on how to do this, IP and passwords listed on the owner manual.

If wireless security settings on router are fine, then you can reset router to factory default using the pinhole switch. You will need to enter all your broadband settings to have the router working afterward.

Netgear 624

to set upa network

there is no "earthnet" connection. it is an ethernet connection. it looks like a phone cable but has larger ends than a phone connector. the router is connected to the computer via an ethernet cable if it needs to be hardwired to a ethernet port or internal ethernet card. a wireless connection only needs to be an add-on internal card w/antenna or a usb connector hub (it looks like a usb flash memory stick)

here is how it's done. netgear has the same type setup.

No default gateway !

This usually means that your network is connected but your computer can't obtain an IP address or default gateway from the ISP (Internet Service Provider) or router. Without an IP address, your computer cannot communicate on the network.
