For that you need to configure your router. Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. Then configure wan settings and lan settings enable wireless if you want to use wifi . Also enable DHCP so you can ip address from router. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

A friend of mine has this D-Link DSL-2750U router & is trying to connect his cable internet to the router but failing to do so. We suspect it is a purely ADSL router & does not support ethernet connection...


You need a router which connects to ethernet..ADSL is connected by RJ45(Telephone connection) ... Many cable companies include a router in the Modem (Verizon) others need a router to do wireless which gets connected between the PC and the Modem . the DSL-2750U is well over $2000.00.. a normal wireless router is $50-$100... a regular router gets connected by ethernet to Modem and router ,, then has 4 other connectors .. ehternet to PC.. Also requires power supply. .. wireless has to be setup for the software.

My company provided me wired internet using Paradyne 6381 wired modem. it works fine. I have D Link 2640 T wirelss modem + router available with me. Please advise me how do I connect available D link 2640...


Since your D-Link 2640 is a modem + router it may not work the way you intend.

You need just a wireless router without modem.

Run a small Ethernet patch cable from your Paradyne modem into the WAN port on your router, you can plug your existing Ethernet cable into one of the other LAN ports on the router, then access the router setup using the computer connected to the Ethernet cable using a browser and putting the router's IP address into the address line of your browser. It will most likely be 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1.

Once you have configured the Wi-Fi router you will have your wireless network. Full instructions should come with the router.

Routers are available for as little as $29.95 but expect to pay closer to $79.95 for satisfactory speed and capability.

The Cable modem must be disconnected from the computer. You cannot use USB and Ethernet at the same time.

1. Turn off power to the Cable Modem and the Netgear Router. Do the same with the computer.
2. Connect an ethernet cable from the modem to the router's WAN (Internet) port.
3. Connect another ethernet cable from one of the remaining 4 LAN ports on the router to the computer's ethernet port.

4. Now power on the Cable Modem ONLY. Wait for the modem to sync up with your service provider
5. After about 2-5 minutes power up the router and wait about 1-2 minutes.
6. Now power on your PC.

Check and see if you have internet access. If not you may have to uninstall any cable modem software related to USB connection. if this is the case, then you may have to repeat steps 4-6.

Since most cable internet providers do not use proprietary connection settings, your internet connection should be up and running without changing any settings in the router or modem.

If this does not resolve your issues, we can continue to work with you.

Sir, try downloading the wireless driver from your laptop company's website. Or form the drivers cd/dvd they provided you. Then you can connect to any wireless capable modem/router from your laptop.

The ethernet cable provides the internet pulses into your laptop. If you remove it, your internet connection gets disconnected.

Please clarify what you mean by ''Connect with an ethernet cable''


Ethernet cable means CAT5 or UTP for others or LAN cable. The connection should be LAN port of your computer to LAN1 of your router.

And you can connect also the internet cable usually ethernet cable from your internet provider directly to (ethernet cable)WAN port of your router to get signal from your internet provider.

Also if you get this message, this could also means you still don't set up or configure the router's settings to communicate when your LAN and router. They must see each other to access the router's utility webpage.

CAN NOT SUCCESSFULLY INSTALL THE INITIAL SETUP.. HELP NEEDS..


Do you have your DSL set up with just the modem connected to one computer? You mentioned that "there is no internet connection problem without router". If you don't have the internet connection working without the router anyway, then how do you expect it to work with the router?

First, you need to make sure that you can plug in one computer to the modem and get an internet connection. This needs to be done with the Verizon Setup CD if you haven't done it already and by connecting your computer to the modem with the USB or Ethernet cable (you can use only one.) I would recommend using the Ethernet cable since this is what you will be using with the router. Once you have the Internet set up with one computer this way, then you can move on to the router.

Disconnect the computer from the modem and actually pull the power plug from the modem. Modems often will not reassign IP addresses when you change what device you plug into them, and thus need to be power cycled. Plug the ethernet cable into the WAN port on the Linksys (and make sure the other end is still connected to the modem) and plug the power cables of both the modem and the router back in.

You should now be able to connect your computer to the router with another ethernet cable (to one of the numbers ports, NOT the WAN port. This is reserved for the modem) and run the setup again.
