You can buy a pci ethernet card/ network adapter pci . Installation would be opening your computer and insertig it to an available pci slot. If you have usb ports then you can buy a usb to lan device. Here are the picturesI dont have an ethernet - a1679da.jpg132f824.jpg

How do i connect a wifi router to the dsl of my pc?


Your internet provider should have provided you with a modem (dsl modem) that will have a ethernet port which can be connected to a computer directly or a router to make internet available to multiple computers. Router usually comes with five ports one of them is WAN port (Wide Area Network) and other four are LAN ports (Local Area Network) The dsl modem should be connected to WAN port of your router and the LAN ports are use to connect to any computer with an ethernet cable. If the router has wireless capability you can use your laptop or smartphone to access internet wirelessly!

I need to know if the D link DI 604 Router can be used for a wirless networking


No, is the short answer. It only has the 4 ports which have to be wired with ethernet cables. So this Router is a wired router.

Hello. I bought this modem with wi fi ,dsl router. How to set it to use this modem as a router.I want to connect my pc with lan cord & use wifi connection with my laptop and phones.


Turn DSL-router off.
Turn Actiontec off.
Turn computer off.

Connect:

* telephone-port in wall <--- 4-pin telephone wire --> DSL router

* Ethernet port on DSL-router <-- Ethernet cable --> WAN port on router

* One of the LAN ports on router <-- Ethernet cable --> network-port on your computer.

Turn DSL-router on, and wait for it to fully load, i.e., pattern of lamps becomes repeatable.

Turn Actiontec on, and wait for it to fully load, i.e., pattern of lamps becomes repeatable.

Turn computer on, and boot it.
Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD
Press Enter
Type IPCONFIG
Press Enter
Look for output like: Default Gateway....192.168.123.456
Start Internet Explorer
Type http://192.168.123.456 (or whatever numbers you saw)
Login to your router
Configure the wireless adapter inside the router
(enter an SSID, choose 'WPA' encryption, enter a password)
Disconnect the Ethernet cable from your computer
Click "View Available Wireless Networks",
and select the SSID that you provided.
Enter the password that you provided.

I need to know how to hook up a westell versalink ? i dont have directions & i have a dial up connection on my desk top . do i need a server ? i have no idea what to do !!


In order to setup the versalink you need an active DSL account, a phone line cord, a phone jack, a pc or mac, and an ethernet cord or wireless ethernet card. Plug in the phone cord to the phone jack and to the DSL port on the versalink- once the DSL light is solid, plug in the ethernet cord to the computer you have, or enter the wep key on the bottom of the modem into the wireless manager for your system. At that point, if you need further assistance in getting online, contact Verizon or Bell (whichever is your DSL provider)- they can and will walk you through setting up the versalink to connect to the internet.

I connected a 100/10 switch behind the router. The link led (uplink) flickers and data transfert through switch in drastically reduced (by factor 150) Can I connect a switch behind the Dsl rputer ?


Hi,

1. Connect one end of your Ethernet cable to one of Four 10/100Mbps Ethernet LAN Ports.

2. Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable into one of the ports in the switch (try not to use the uplink port if it slows-down the connection)


Thanks

How to have connections in my other pc if im using router , but if i direct the cable to the modem theres a connection?


One Ethernet cable goes from the WAN port on the router to the cable-modem (or DSL-modem).

Another Ethernet cable goes from one of the LAN ports on the rouer to your first PC.

Another Ethernet cable goes from one of the LAN ports on the rouer to your second PC.

I have an netgear router, but dont have an cd drive to install the cd. My laptop is old. how would I install this


Connect your laptop directly to the internet (plug the Ethernet cable into your network interface) and download the drivers from the d-link website.

If you have USB ports, you can use another PC to copy the CD to a Flash drive.

Need drivers for DSL-G624t wireless router


If you're connecting to the router by ethernet cable or wirelessly, you dont need drivers unless you mean the drivers for the ethernet adapter and/or wireless adpater in your PC.
If this is what you're after, your PC's manufacturer's website is the best place to look if you dont have them on CD/DVD.

If you're connecting to the router by USB port, then the D-Link webiste should have the drivers for downloading.

How TO connect XBOX360 to Back of computer and be able to use both at the samethime. Have DSL internet


Why connect the XBOX to the computer? Can you connect it to another port on the DSL router or do you only have one port for internet connection? If so get a DSL router that will allow you to connect multiple network devices. The router will have to be configured like the current PC so that it can connect to teh internet. Then you can connect your XBOX to one of the router ports and teh PC to another port. Your PC ethernet internet connect will need to be changed so that it uses DHCP.

a second option:
You PC probably only has one ethernet port that you are using to connect to the DSL. You will need to get a second ethernet card for the PC to connect the XBOX. Not worth the trouble or $$$.
