Hi I have a laptop of Dell & i have a phone of Samsung Mode GT-C3053 Handset GPRS Compatible I want to connect my phone to laptop for using internet Can you have any solution


Are you hooked up to the net through your phone company? If so, all you need to do is plug a phone cord into the right place on the PC, & be sure to hook up a filter they sent you from the company, if there will be phones hooked up to the same line. If you have a line dedicated ONLY for internet use, just plug in the cord, run the disk they sent you, & you're set. Do you have dialup or broadband? That also makes a difference. Dialup you can do the above & add a phone running from PC also, np. BUT if you have broadband & you want to have a phone & PC hooked up to same line, you want the phone to come off a line BEFORE it gets to the PC, as the filter thing is important. Put filter on the phone line. If you have broadband & a phone that runs off line from PC, you will hear horrible sounds louder than voices on the phone. Ask my ears, I tried that. :) If all that doesn't help, ask again & tell us lots more about it, OK? :) More info helps a lot.

I have a second line for dial up and would like to switch over to dsl through my cable company to save some money can I drop my second line (dial up) and go to cable without any problems. I pay MSN direct...


DSL connection works on the same line provided by company who provides DSL. If dialup line is not provided by DSL company, you can drop dialup line and contact DSL company for DSL connection. If dialup line is provided by DSL company, migrate your internet plan from dialup to DSL by contacting DSL company.

Which is more secure dsl (landline)or ethernet? have dialup and wondering if should change? is ATT dsl lite the way to go?


If you are looking for better speed when browsing the web, DSL is the way to go. Even ATT's DSL lite is around 20 times faster than dialup plus it doesn't tie up your phone line.

DSL-2640U connect to internet but want to setup second dialup connection from pc


Sounds like you have high speed internet and also want a dialup connection as well. Maybe as a backup.
Anyway, your pc will need have a dialup modem installed in it.
If you already have one installed then you will also need a dialup ISP account. Some times an ISP will provide dialup in addition to broadband. Ask you ISP or call AOL.

How d o I dial the Username and Password From this router.


Hello,

If you have a dialup internet connection the router can not directly help you, because the device that you are using for dialup (your PC) needs to first dial up your ISP using the telephone and then once connected it will use PPP to setup the IP Connection, at that point your within the PPP stack it will send your Password and Username. When that is all done you have connectivity. The router assumes that your connection by nature is either DHCP or PPPoE, not PPP or SLIP as with a dial up connection

What you need is a device that has dialup capibilities, and an internal PPP stack to allow for connectivity to the ISP while allowing for a connition to the router. This can be done by connecting one of your PCs (with Internet sharing enabled) to the internet via dialup and using a second ethernet connection to your router, then from the router you can connect your other PCs.

This method involves setting up two different subnets so here is a suggestion:

1) On the PC set the ethernet LAN facing connection to an IP Address of 192.168.10.100, netmask to 255.255.255.0, Gateway to 192.168.10.1 no DNS

2) On the router set the WAN IP Address to 192.168.10.1 and the DNS to the DNS provided by the ISP.

3) On the router facing the LAN (your network) set the IP Address to 192.168.1.1 and thell the router to act like a DHCP server.

This way you will be able to connect your PCs to the router and have it serve as a permanent connection to the PC which will still have to dial out but you can send a periodic ping sequence to keep the Internet connection up. and connfiguer auto-dial if the connection goes down.

I hope this helps

Thank you,

Connection keeps cutting off


Hi, I have also faced the same problem many times....
Try to restart the router and see for the connection light to turn green.... then connect to internet..


This happens due to heavy load. When thre are many users your router will restart automatically.

If this still continues ask your tech guy to change the line.

Is there any way to increase download speed on my dialup connection? Phil


making sure you have the latest drivers for the dialup modem is about the most you can do. not sure if you've considered dsl or cable internet, but its cheaper than paying for dialup service and a phone line. (unless you don't have a cell phone and need the home phone line.)
