DSL-2640U connect to internet but want to setup second dialup connection from pc


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.

I have a used compacq 530 but do not know what is missing because i cannot get it to hook up to the internet


Possibly if you gave more information .....does it have a network card installed, is the network card "enabled" in the hardware settings, does the network card have correct drivers ? ( no yellow question mark beside it ) Do you have an internet provider and account ? Is your internet high speed or dialup, if it is dialup, do you have a modem installed - with correct drivers ? Is it working - do a modem query to see if it responds ?
If using a network card and cable or DSL internet, is the cable connected from the PC to the cable or dsl modem ? Is the cable or dsl modem plugged in and the power and wan light on ? With the little bit of information you have given, it is not really possible to give an exact answer to what the problem is.

When i hook it up i get the laptop to pick up the signal but the desktop will not go online


on the hind side of the modem how many ports do you see
my guess one port slightly seperated and named INTERNET or WAN and four more ports numbered 1,2,3,4

now connect the network cable from the modem to the WAN / INTERNET port and connect the laptopand PC to the ports1,2

now check to see if there is connection to only on Laptop or both

but if you have conection to only the laptop/PC connected to port1 then try this small trick

move the laptop to port 3 and in port 1 connect the cable from the modem which was connected to the WAN / INTERNET port

and u r set to go

D-link DI-604


I didn't quite understand what you meant but Ill explain some stuff you to that might help.

From what I understand you have a dial up router/modem, which is external (outside of your computer/seperate), and you hookup your phone line to it, which then connects into your DI-604 WAN port.

WAN Static IP settings are related to the settings given by the ISP that stay constant. There are 2 types of IP, static and dynamic. I think dial up is dynamic, since you have to connect/disconnect through the phone when you want to get on, this causes the ip to change at each reconnect, unless your ISP treats it differently.

I have no idea what you want to get out of the WAN static IP settings, but this should be handled by the dialup router/modem it self, and generally you dont have to manually enter the static ip, unless the ISP requires it, in that case you would enter this stuff there. The ISP Gateway Address refers to the ISP's router address/modem, I think, since I never heard the term before.

After "My problem:", I didn't understand your problem and can't give you further info until you clarify. Also if you internet is fully connected and working, and you still have problems then you could try resetting the router, by holding the reset button for 10 seconds. This will erase all settings. If that doesn't help try unplugging the router, then holding the reset button for 5-10 seconds, then plugging it in at the same time, then it should be fully reset, unless I forgot how it was supposed to be reset. ( I used to have the same router)

WAN


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.

Check if your Dsl is up and running. Your Dsl modem should have a green led with a green light that most be solit green. Connect a cat 5E pach cable from the back of the modem ( it look like a phone pug but it is big er ) to the back of the router, in the port that is label WAN.

Belkin mimo installation


what you should have purchased was a modem/router and not a seperate router to connect to your modem, but the modem should connect to the cable/adsl port (wan) using the initial RJ45 lan cable, and then a lan cable from one of the 4 ports on the rear to each pc.
