With a cable broadband connection, the cable line comes into the cable modem. The cable modem does the work changing the cable signal to a network connection and sends an I.P. address to the computer. With some cable internet providers you can hook the network cable into the in port on a router, wireless or wired, then hook up computers to the router. At this point the router gets the IP from cable and uses it's own IP routing for your internal network. Some broadband providers control your access by the computers mac address which registers with the vendor. If this is the case then the easy way to make it work is to get a router which can clone a mac address so the vendor still sees the same mac address.

Direct access through LAN cable internet was working fine. whereas while connecting through DLink(Dir 600) pages were not loading correcly. I tried Netgear modem it was working fine. What is the probl


I would contact your ISP for help with this one. It should work but you would want to check the LAN and WAN settings to make sure they work on the network since there have been changes.

I have just 2 computers currently connected to my Dell Power connect 2124...One is accessing the internet just fine but the other cannot acquire an ip.....I put new ends on the cable but stll no soultion


I assume you have connected your switch to any broadband router and then trying to access multiple systems at the sametime.
This is not possible if NAT (Network Address Translation) is not enabled on your broadband router.

7. Once your done on the internet setting, go to your wireless connection settings and you can create a wireless network name or ssid, set a security by selecting wep, wpa, wpa2.
8. once all is set. save the settings and to check if your laptop can access the wireless network that you did, turn on the wireless switch of your laptop, once its on, it will show the wireless network icon on the lower right of the taskbar, right click it and select on view available network, the network name that u did should list, just select it and connect and it will ask for the password, just type the password and connect, you should be connected to the wireless network and have internet access..
9. If you are going to hook up your desktop to the wireless connection, you need to install a wireless network adapter, install the driver and do the same thing as u did to the laptop, for the desktop no need of turning on the wireless switch, once you install the driver correctly, it will show a network icon..

Need nat type 2-PS3 Cable ISP digital phone modem wireless route


you can put your ps3 in a dmz zone. if still does not work its not your router. u can keep your ps3 in dmz and get your router to open ports. u can call your router company. If still does not work its not your router more than likely. It might be your modem. i have at&t and that was my issue. i went to dmz on modem and allowed it to pass through dmz zone and ip addresses to pass through. but make sure on your comp u have spyware or something. Your ps3 can not get virus.

Slow Internet Connect


i have the same router. I recommend that you download a new driver of your lan card for your desktop pc, also if you have P2P and bittorrent applications, try to disable them first and see the difference, those programs slow down the your internet, because they hog your bandwidth and connects to multiple users.

DIR-635 can't access the internet


I think you have wrong configuration of your router.

1. Some xDSL Internet Service Providers may assign a Fixed IP Address for your Broadband router. If you have been provided with this information, choose this option and enter the assigned IP Address, Subnet Mask, Gateway IP Address and DNS IP Address for your Broadband router.
2. If you connect to the Internet using an xDSL Modem and your ISP has provided you with a Password and a Service Name, then your ISP uses PPPoE to establish a connection. You must choose this option and enter the required information.
