Since your D-Link 2640 is a modem + router it may not work the way you intend.
You need just a wireless router without modem.
Run a small Ethernet patch cable from your Paradyne modem into the WAN port on your router, you can plug your existing Ethernet cable into one of the other LAN ports on the router, then access the router setup using the computer connected to the Ethernet cable using a browser and putting the router's IP address into the address line of your browser. It will most likely be 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1.
Once you have configured the Wi-Fi router you will have your wireless network. Full instructions should come with the router.
Routers are available for as little as $29.95 but expect to pay closer to $79.95 for satisfactory speed and capability.
Did it *EVER* work, or is this a "first-time" setup problem?
1. You need a "straight-through" Ethernet cable between the WAN (not LAN) port on the router to your modem.
2. You need a _working_ Ethernet cable between the modem and the router.
3. You need to turn the modem on.
4. You need to turn the router on.
5. You need to connect your PC to the router, and access the router's built-in web-server, and then view the router's "WAN-status" web-page. While on that page, click 'Renew IP address".
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.
It seems like you have a very big problem. If you are successfully connnected to the wireless router, you can check the the ip address of the router by doing an ipconfig in command prompt, check the default gateway and try to access using IE browser. The next problem is accessing the router when you are prompted to enter the username and password, the default is username: admin password: admin, depending on the model, if it is customized, you will have to reset the router to access it and configure the mac filtering or enable wireless security to deny the person who is taking up your bandwidth. You dont have to access the Paradyne modem to configure everything, if you want to find out if it is running DHCP, you can connect a PC wired(straight UTP cable) with all the network settings at default and check if you can get an ip using ipconfig with the command prompt. The main thing here is to reset your wireless routers to factory defaults(use the button at the back) to re-organize your connection and setup a security for unwanted users.
Inform me if there are other questions or clarifications you need regarding the problem.
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.
Verify this with your ISP, but if you go into your modem settings, click on "Advanced Setup", click on WAN, when page opens, click "Edit". After clicking "Next", you come to the page labelled, "Connection Type". It is there you select what mode you'd like it to work in. When you are through selecting click NEXT till you get to the page with the SAVE button. Click Save and wait for page with FINISH to come up. Click FINISH and wait for the router to reboot(2 mins). Please write down the previous settings so you'll be able to undo whatever you do.
