Yes it requires a phone line for AT&T, or a cable modem, or a community wireless modem to hook up to the internet

You don't. An ethernet switch is not a router. A switch has no NAT or firewall capabilities. You'll need to buy a proper cable/dsl router for the type of port forwarding that you're looking to do.

Can I use motorola sbg900 wireless cable modem with at&t DSL internet service?


No, the AT&T service must be paired to the service by AT&T and therefore you will need to obtain a DSL modem directly from them. They don't usually charge for the DSL modem and offer the wireless service with their DSL service free of charge.

Trying to access DSL with HP modem


If you mean you're trying to use DSL service with the modem that came built into an HP computer, you can't. That modem is for dial-up Internet service only, or if you want to use your computer as a fax machine along with a scanner or all-in-one printer.

To connect to DSL, you'll need a DSL modem. If you're just getting service, your service provider should have supplied one. (Actually, I think you have the option now of ordering DSL service and not getting a modem if you already have one. Maybe you did this.) The DSL modem has a telephone-type jack to connect to the phone line (same as on the HP modem), but the connection to your computer is through a different, larger, jack usually labeled "Ethernet" or "Computer". If you don't have a modem, you can easily find them for sale. You can buy new ones at retailers who sell computers, and many used ones are available on eBay or on your local Craig's list.

Another possibility is that you already have a DSL modem and are asking how to connect an addtional computer. If this is so, you don't connect the new computer to the DSL phone line. Instead, you need to share the network connection coming from the modem. This is done using a router, which allows several computers to use the same connection either through a cable or wirelessly. The DSL modems typically supplied now have the router built in, with 4 connections for wired computers and wireless capability as well. If your modem is an older one intended for a single connection only, it will have just one network connection. If this is the case for you, you'll need to supply your own router.

Does a wireless router need to be connected to a phone line?


Hello emanuelav716, Your router does not need to be connected to a phone line. However is does need to be connected to a cable or DSL modem if you want internet access. If you are just looking for a network inside your home or business the router can be setup that way. Please reply with any other questions or rate this solution if you found it helpful. Thanks!

Need router or modem for ATT DSL 6.0


Hi,
Your laptop has got a modem built in, but it is intended for dial up 56Kbps, not DSL. So they are both right. But if you want to use a DSL internet service you will need to buy either a DSL router or modem. You should not need to buy bothas the router will have the modem built in. Your ISP may have a prefered model and will probably sell you one at a fairly cheap price or you can get one from your local PC world. If you only have the one Laptop at home you can buy either the router or the modem. The modem will probably be cheaper. But for around $60 you can buy a router I prefer wireless. This will allow you around 4 connections and more importantly frees you up from having to be directly and closely connected and allows you to work in various places around the home without trailing cables everywhere. Your ISP will advise you on the settings you require. I advise you to enable all the security options on any wireless devices. I hope this was useful.

Ok I am goin to make some assumptions here, you have dial up service right? first you need to get DSL which allows you to use your Internet and phone at the same time on the same line. The other choice is to get cable modem service which frees up your telephone line because your internet service will be coming over your cable connection. Once you have DSL or cable modem you will need to connect and configure your router. plug the ethernet cable from your Cable modem or DSL Modem into your Router's WAN port the plug your PC into the Router's LAN port. Your PC should pull an IP address using the DHCP protocol. You can check this by opening up a cmd prompt window in Windows and typing in the command ipconfig and pressing the enter key. Once you have your ipaddress (which should be 192.168.1.xxx xxx = some number between 2 and 254) try to ping the gateway address by typing in ping 192.168.1.1 and hitting the enter key. you should get 4 ping return indications. Once this happens log into your router via the default gateway IP address (192.168.1.1) from your web browser by using the default login and password (these default settings should be in your documentation but the log in is admin or leave the box blank, and the password is admin) once you are logged in set your WANconnectivity for DHCP (cable modem) or PPPOE (DSL). then for DSL put in your login and password given to your by your DSL provided, for cable modem just select the save button (for both) and the the router should pull a WAN side IP address. check this by looking at your router's WAN settings. once you have don this you should be able to connect to the Internet.
