Re: internet provider says no browser installed on my pc
It is hard to believe you do not have a browser on your laptop. These are browsers you can use. Firefox, netscape, lycos and explorer are some. If you have a friend with a computer, get them to download firefox for mac on theri computer, then get them to put it on a USB for you, take the USB and install it on your Mac. This will fix your browser issue.

it shouldn't be asking for an ISP as most dsl modems even though they are PPPOE by nature, DSL providers have removed the necessity to add all the information to the configuration. I recommend removing all connections already present in the machine, not the adapters or anything physical just remove all known connections. don't run any kind of internet set up wizard because you don't need it. just connect the device to the router/modem. if you connect directly to the modem you'll need to reset it after connecting the new machine. If internet explorer/firefox/chrome are being used make sure you double check proxy settings and turn them off. this is listed under tools in the browsers. I would also make sure both the wireless and wired connections have been set up to 'automatically receive an IP (dhcp) and that no info has been pre-added to the configuration. set everything to be automatic and reset your modem and you should be good to go.
The reason you have no internet is because the router is specifically for cable. your description contains errors what i think you mean is that you have gone from cable dsl to an adsl, correct me if i am wrong. Basically your modem connected to your router via an ethernet cable and then the router fed the wireless signal to your wireless devices or via ethernet through the 4 ports in the back. With adsl you have a feed from your phone line to an adsl modem so the only way for you to get the dsl router working is to have two ethernet leads connecting to your pc, one from the modem to the pc and one from the pc to the router. You would also need to setup internet sharing on the pc thats connected to both devices.
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.
1. Make sure you have the latest firmware
2. Restore to factory settings first. This helped me with stacked ppp session.
3. Setup your connection according to ISP
4. If you have problem, install Router Commander from www.routercommander.com
5. Setup router to send syslog to your PC
6. Check syslog messages about the clue what's going on
You dont need both. Do the following: Unplug your speedtouch from the phone line at the back of the speedtouch unit. Plug that cable into your Zoom. Then plug one end of an ethernet cable into router and one end into your PC.
Type http://10.0.0.2 into a web browser (eg. Firefox or Internet
explorer) username/password is admin/zoomadsl go to basic setup and
input your ISP username and password (the one given to you by your
internet provider) under PPP. Click configure my connection. Save
changes and then write to flash (both buttons on bottom of page)
Some providers make you use IE to do the initial setup. I am guessing you are running OS9 so it could be IE 5.2 for the mac. Did you get a valid ip? Can you tell me who your isp is and I can look up what you need.
the modem may have gone faulty so if your isp provided it ask them to replace it if the modem is in warranty period and if your isp provides internet connection through the phone line then first please try plugging the modem on main socket in with an adsl filter plugged in and if this is not the case then problem is definately the line through which the broadband signal come to your place which is suppose to be sorted out by your isp.
