Re: can not get on line
1. Make sure the ethernet cable going from the modem is going into the port on the router labeled "internet." Next, make sure the ethernet cable that is plugged into your desktop is going into the port labeled either 1,2,3,or4.
2. If it is in port 1, or any other port, make sure you try all of the number ports.(1,2,3,4)

You don't need to install a wireless router. unplug your modem, connect the ethernet cable from your modem to the port on your router labeled internet or WAN, and then plug in the modem and router. Connect your computer to the network and you should be online.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem. If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine. You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router. open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.
Are you trying to set up the router. You can do it manually without the CD. Make sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem. If your computer is not able to go online through the modem then you will need to call ISP first. If your computer is able to go online through the modem then you need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router. open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

I assme you have a DSL or cable modem from Comcast and this is connected to the wall. The LAN cable from this modem should now be connected to the WAN/Internet port on the DLink wireless router.
To secure your wireless network please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security
The router normally goes between the Cable Modem (or DSL line) and the computer. Use a CAT-5 cable to connect modem to the WAN input connector on your router (the connector labelled "Internet), then another CAT-5 cable goes between any of the ports and your computer. Using your web browser, go to 192.168.1.1 and continue with the router setup, choose an SSID (what you name your network), followed by Wireless Security if your router supports wireless as well. I like WPA-PSK[TKIP] for its simplicity. Anyway, the router is now useaqble by other computers!
Plug in the laptop to the router and the router to the modem. Power cycle the modem. Turn on power to the router. Copen a command prompt on the laptop and type 'ipconfig /all' and press Enter. Look for your IP address (should have been assigned by the router and should look like 192.168.1.x). Also look for the default gateway. It will probably be 192.168.1.1. If that is the case, you should be able to use your web browser to connect to the router to check its configuration and the WAN status by typing in the address 'http://192.168.1.1' (or whatever was displayed for the default gateway previously.
If your modem/router has a USB connectivity, you can connect it via USB. Else you will have to buy an Ethernet PCI Card, which wont cost you much.
I hope this solves your problem. Good Luck !

Its almost impossible to connect a 2wire DSL router with a Cable modem. They dont go hand in hand.
Although you can connect the outgoing ethernet wire from the modem in the last ethernet plug on the back of the router and then have the ethernet connections coming from the router. But not wireless. and if you find a way, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
