Scenario: DI-704P is directly connected to the dsl modem then connected one of it's lan port to WAN of my Linksys WRT300N... I'm having trouble in Remote Desktop Connection, I can't access my computer which is connected to the WRT300N using Remote Desktop Connection i'm at home and the pc is at my office..
i have a router D-link 704 how do i configure this router to CABLE DSL internet. This i need a IP address provide my Internet ISP? i hope you can help this problem, you can email me email@example.com

Most modern DSL modems operate as a NAT. If you plug directly into the modem and get an IP address that starts with 192.168, the modem is the NAT. Instead of connecting the modem to the WAN port on the router, connect it to one of the LAN ports.
To see what your IP address is, assuming Windows, open a command window. At the command prompt, type "ipconfig" (without the quotes) and hit Enter. It'll return your computer's IP address.
The simplest way to test this is to simply connect the modem to the #1 LAN port, using the supplied ethernet cable. Power the modem and router down. Fire up the modem. When it's active, fire up the router. Now connect and see what happens.
You won't get internet connection that way because there is no connection between the first parkervision and the 2nd one. Best way is use only one parkervision router. Connect WAN port to modem for internet, 1st lan port connect to your pc and 2nd lan port connect to 2nd pc in other room.
2nd way is, use only one parkervision. Connect WAN port to modem for internet, 1st lan port connect to your pc, setup wireless SSID and connect your 2nd pc to this router for internet wirelessly. Assuming your 2nd pc has wireless capability.
Cable-modem <----> WAN-port on the router.
DSL-modem <----> WAN-port on the router.
LAN-port on the router <----> Ethernet port on your computer.
Windows 7 should show that you have obtained an IP-address,
starting with '192.168.' that was supplied by the router.
Note that some ISPs (Internet Service Providers) will require
that you tell them the MAC (Media Acccess Control) address
of the _ROUTER_ before the router will be able to connect,
through the ISP's services, to the Internet. Contact your ISP.
So you are connecting the DSL Modem output to the D-Link's LAN port 1, right? In this case, you should connect the DSL Modem output to the D-Link's WAN Port, which is between the power input and the LAN outputs.
If it doesn't work that way, check this out: http://www.voipmechanic.com/westelltobridge.htm
it doesn't matter whether the other computer is set to static and the other one is set to dynamic as long as both computers are getting/using valid ip addresses.
if i got it right. 1 computer is connected to the LAN port of the router and the other computer is connected to the WAN port. if so, you need to connect both computer to the LAN ports and the WAN port of the router should be connected to the modem that you are using.
if the physical connection is correct, check how you are connecting to the internet through the modem. if you can access the internet from the modem without configuring anything, you just need to power cycle. turn off everything then turn on the modem first, wait for the lights on the modem to turn on properly before turning on the router then turn on the computers.
hope this'll help you but if not, just provide the following:

The wan port is what you hook your modem to. Wan stands for Wide Area Network, which in your case is the internet. Your house with your 2 pc's and networking equipment would be considered a Lan, local area network.
The 4 ports on the router are switch ports, when you hook the modem up to the switch instead of the wan port the modem will only allow traffic from one physical, (MAC) address to pass through, this is why only one of your pc's can access the internet. The wan port on the router has its own MAC address, so the modem will associate with the wan port and trust all traffic that comes from that port.
Finally, after you have connected the modem to the wan port, pull the power cord on the modem then plug it back in to reset it, this will force the modem to orient with the wan port.
1. Just connect one of the LAN ports of the DI-704P to a LAN port of your WRT54G. Try using a standard network cable. If the port status lights does not turn on on both sides when you connect the cable, use a "crossover" cable. Important: leave the DI-704P WAN port empty.
2. Disable the DHCP server on your DI-704P, your WRT54G will be the DHCP server.
3. Assign a static IP address to you DI-704P, different from your WRT54G. Example, if your WRT54G has 192.168.2.1, you may assign 192.168.2.4 to your DI-704P. Make sure that the IP address you assign is outside the DHCP range configured in your WRT54G and that the subnet mask is identical on both.
You will then be able to use your print server from any wired and wireless computer and the remaining LAN ports both on the WRT54G and DI-704P.
WAN s not for your use now. dont dig with it bro.. tel me one thing.. what kind of connection you have? does the modem stores the password or you type the pass each time manually to connect to internet
