D-link router DI524 using next G external wireless modem

I have a BP3 external Next G wireless modem which connects to my desk top PC via USB port. I have a wireless HP printer in another room and a wireless portable HP PC. I also have a D-Link DI-524 router. I would like to connect all this so as to have a wireless network in the house. However my modem only connects to the PC via USB. How do I do this????. Thanks

You can purchase a usb wireless dongle and attach to the PC. From then onwards you can set up a wireless network without connecting the usb cable for the router. The dongle will enable wireless capabilities on the pc. The only thing left is to have all devices running in the same workgroup.

Im thinking , it might be the settings of your router....or might be the connection -Connect your modem to the WAN/Internet port of your router -Then connect your computer to any of the 4 ports which has 1-4 on it -Make sure both modem and the router are on -open an internet explorer (regardless if theres an internet connection or none) -In the address bar typein 192.168.0.1 -Login window will appear leave the password blank then hit ok -Click on Run wizard -Just click on next and do whatever necessary changes you want there -Usually it was set to dynamic Ip address -then next and click on clone MAC address -You can also set you wireless settings, ssid would be the name of your wireless network -Channel you can select 6 or 11 -Next set your password to WEP enabled -WEP encyption should be 64bit -then you can think of any key that would server as your password, but remember you can use all the numbers but with letters you can only use A-F.. this is not case sensitive -or you have the option not to put any security of your wireless, but this is not recommended -Then lastly restart it. -once its done clikc on the status tab on the upper section of the window -and check if under WAN you have an IP address, if you have, then it means your good to go to check you internet connection if none just simply click on DHCP release then renew til you get IP address..

If you can connect to the internet using the Ethernet cable on your laptop then the cable modem is configured correctly.
If you want to connect to the Internet using the D-Link wireless router then first you need to configure the D-Link wireless settings and then configure the wireless card in your laptop with the D-Link's wireless settings. Remove the Ethernet from the laptop and connect it to the WAN/Internet port on the D-Link wireless router.

First unplug your router, then unplug your modem and for 10 seconds. Next plug the modem back in and wait it to reboot(on mine this a series of 4 lights that light up in sequence, when the 4th light stops flashing, reboot is complete). Finally plug your router back in.

D Link DIR 635 router conection internet


Normally, all ruters are hubs as well. if you want to connect it as a hub only; try connecting only the ports minus the WAN port that goes to the DSL modem. In this case the router will behave just like a hub.
