Question about Computers & Internet

Is there any advantage using my DLink DIR625 with my Verizon 9100EM modem/router set up using WPA2? I have one ethernet tethered desktop and one laptop, plus using an wireless Skype Ipevo phone on the wireless internet & a wireless HP printer. I'm new to all this - I used to have my DLink set up off of a previous Verizon modem, but now that I'm FIOS they tell me not to.

I can see no problem with that. But the WPA2 could be the issue. Some wireless device doesn't support WPA2 level. You can give it a try. For sure the laptop will connect. Not sure with the printer and the skype device. If they can't connect, use WPA only.

How did you connect the computer to the router. If you are using a DSL modem it will have a DHCP server in it that is allocating IP addresses across your network. If you added the router to the computer via a hub or network switch what is the computers ip .
address. Remove the WI FI router - turn off P.C and then Go to cmd or dos prompt if windows based system and type in ipconfig and press enter to see if ip addresses are 10.0.0.2 if they are your dlink router uses 192.168.0.1 so you need to make the dlink router ip addressand subnet setting to match the Modem ip addresses of the DHCP server. Change the ip address of the dlink router to be 10.0.0.2 and change the modem to allocate DHCP IP addresses from 10.0.0.10 to 10.0.0.255. Only do this if IP addresses are 10,0,0,1 to 10.0.0.,254 on the desktop p.c with the dsl or cable modem connected.without the router being involved. (you may need to ask the ISP what the user name and password is of the modem and it should be ip address xx.xx.xx.1 so type this into a browser to change the modem settings. 10.0.0.1 or 192.168.0.1 just remember if the modem is 192.168.0.1 so is the Wi router from d-link and you will have an ip clash problem)
. How do you do this by ethernet connection from only the desktop directly with only the Wi FI . router. Go to a internet browser and type in the URL 192.168.0.1 and then change the router ip address to match what the DSL modem DHCP issues..
Page 14 of Router instructions see http://files.dlink.com.au/Products/DIR-615/Manuals/DIR-615_C2_Manual_v3.10.pdf
in the manual it states to use a direct ethernet connection for the setup program but you need to be connected to the internet for it to work but if the IP addresses are wrong or clashing will have no internet. You also want to set the modem as the DCHP server and disable the DHCP server in the set up of the wi fi tand set the WI FI router default gateway as the ip address of the Modem. if any DHCP server options in the WI FI router sert to the modem ip address. .

I want to connect my all-in-one with my desktop-computer and router.


1.Your Modem you have with your ISP (Internet Service Provider) has an Ethernet cable coming from it
2.Plug the Ethernet cable into the Internet port of the router.
3.Unless your desktop computer has wifi capabilities (Wireless) your will want to plug an Ethernet cable directly from your Ethernet port of your computer to one of the 4 ports of your router.
4.This will allow you to connect 8 devices wireless around your home with your desktop computer Tethered (Hardwired to your router)

Setup belkin wireless network


Hi,
1.Connect a Cat5 cable into the Ethernet port on the back of your cable or DSL modem. Plug the other end of the cable into the "Connect to Modem Internet/WAN" port on the back of the Belkin Router.
2.Connect a Cat5 cable into the "Ethernet" port on the back of any desktop or stationary computers and then plug the other end of the cable into one of the LAN ports on the back of the Belkin Router. Start with port one and work your way up with subsequent computer connections.
3.Turn the Belkin Router on by plugging the router into a power outlet. Allow 30 seconds for the router to fully boot up. All computers tethered to the modem via a Cat5 cable have access to the Internet.
4.Open the Wi-Fi Wizard on your laptop and turn on the Wi-Fi antenna. Once turned on, the Wizard finds all network connections in your area. Connect to your network to establish an Internet connection. Complete this step for each computer not tethered to the Belkin Router with a Cat5 cable.

Dlink router wont connect to enternet


so that means you are not able to go online using the router.
If you connect the computer directly to the modem, does it work ?
If that works then the modem is working properly.
You can try to reset the router for 30 seconds , then unplug the power to the router and plug it back in. Wait for 1 minutes and then try to set up the router manually.

Connect dlink wireless router to cable modem


If your cable modem was operative ...here's an easy procedure:

1. Turn off all network routers, modem, computers..
2. Turn on the power to the DLink router. let it cycle up.
3. Connect your ethernet from the Dlink to the cable modem and then turn the power on to the cable modem and let it cycle up.
..this will "fool" the cable modem into finding your dlink as the "computer" ..since the cable modem is set up for only one computer, if the dlink is the "computer" that it locks in, then go ahead and turn on all other computers and etc...you should be able to get online wirelessly..
Follow the order of events above and it should be cool.

Verizon AGT704WG modem/router conflicts w/ T-Mobile WRTU54G-TM


your Verizon AGT704WG is a gateway, meaning, it's a modem that has router functions (wireless, support for multiple pc's etc.). If you want to connect your T-Mobile wireless router, it would cause certain conflicts with your Verizon 704WG because it is also a wireless router. That's why you can't configure it.

So, if you want to connect your T-Mobile wireless router, you would have to set up your 704WG first to BRIDGE MODE. Which means you would have to disable its routing functions so that only the T-Mobile will function as your router and will not cause any conflict.

If you want to set your GT704WG to bridge mode, follow these steps.

1. Hardwire (connected using ethernet cable) your compuer to your 704WG.
2. On your Internet Explorer or Firefox, type in 192.168.1.1 (default address for your GT704WG). You will then see a verizon page which is the configuration page of your gateway (for newer modems, the background is usually red and black).
3. When prompted, enter username and password. default username is ADMIN, password is PASSWORD or if you've called Verizon tech support, password would be ADMIN (lower case).
4. Click on the MY NETWORK icon from the top bar.
5. Click NETWORK CONNECTIONS from the left navigation box.
6. Click BROADBAND CONNECTIONS (DSL)
7. Under the VC’s section, click the EDIT icon.
8. Select BRIDGE on the PROTOCOL drop down box.
9. Select ROUTED BRIDGE in the BRIDGE MODE field.
10. Click on APPLY and then click on YES to confirm reset.

You would notice that the wireless light on your gt704WG will be off. That's ok because that would indicate that your modem is in bridge mode.

Powercycle (turn off modem for 30 secs and turn it back on) your Actiontec.

That should do it. Good luck.

What kind of problems are you having? Once the router is connected to your modem and the router is configured and working properly you should be able to connect it to your PS3.

Connecting to my DIR625


One thing you might want to check is your firewall settings. Not the windows firewall but 3rd party firewall like Norton Internet Security. It will block your connection if it detects a different network. Also check the LED lights on the router, if you plug in an ethernet cable, does the light lite up on the corresondping Lan.
