Question about D-Link DES 1005D (DES-1005D) 5x10/100 Mbps Networking Switch
I just switched from Buckeye Cable High Speed internet to ATT DSL Internet Access. I have a small network consisting of a Windows 2000 Server, 3 pc's (1-Windows 2000, 1-Vista, 1-Windows XP) I have a DLink DSS-24 port router. How do I get all pc's and server to share internet access using my router. I can only get one pc (Vista) to connect to the internet connected to the Westell modem not through the router. I also need to share the files on the server and none of the pc's can see the shared drive. From what I understand with the DLink there is no configuration needed but need to use PPPOE for my DSL connection.
Any advise on how to get this all to work.
1.) The setup needs changing
2.) first off the dss-24 is a network switch not a router
3.) all of your pc equipment should be pluged into that device.
4.) chose one port as an uplink to your att modem
I think your problem is that the new modem is only giving out one ip address. So what ever first pc is turned on that is the one that grabs the address.
5.) you will most likly need a router to take the one ip address assigned via att then dole out additional ones. Remember the dss-24 is not a router. It simply connects everyone together. Each device still needs an ip address given from somewhere. Your old cable modem probibly did that but your new att dsl most likly does not.hence the new router will do that.....
to set it up do the following
2.) Find out the ip setup needed for your dsl service
A.) gateway ip
B.) primary & secondary dns server ip`s
C.) subnet mask
3.) get into the setup of your new router and then plugg in
all of these values using a fixed if address in the router
4.) connect routers wan port to one of the modems port. u may have to use a cross cable or straight look at the link lites to find out if they are talking to each other
5.) make sure that the routers lan side is setup for DHCP
6.) connect one lan port off the router to an uplink
of the dss-24. Then reboot everything
7.) viola it should all work internet on evey machine and file sharring.
