I have recentyl installed a etherned 4 port modem/router with two PC's one VISTA and one XP. The XP one was used by my ISP to install the modem/router, and works fine.after turning off each night.
When I turn on the Vista PC in the morning (the previous night I put the PC into hiberntion and turned it off at the power point) the LAN light does not light and the icon on the task bar shows a red X and no internet connection. After unplugging and plugging the ethernet cable on port 2 several times (the XP is on port3)the light eventually comes on and all was well. It appears if I put the PC into hibernation the LAN light will stay on, but if I turn the PC off at the power point it will not come on the next day.
The funny thing is that the other PC, an XP on port 3 of the 4 port modem, which was used to install the modem/router by my ISP provider, comes on every time after being put into hibernation, and switched off at the power point each night.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to Fixya. I would like to know the operating system of your computer is it windows Vista, Xp or 7? I would also like to know if the model of you router? Please provide the information needed to be able to fix the issue.
No driver needed since you aren't connecting the pc the the modem, but to the router.
Connect the pc to the D-Link DSL-504T with a LAN cable, access it from a browser by going to this IP - 192.168.0.1 - , in there access the modem settings and configure it accordingly.
1.) The setup needs changing
2.) first off the dss-24 is a network switch not a router
3.) all of your pc equipment should be pluged into that device.
4.) chose one port as an uplink to your att modem
I think your problem is that the new modem is only giving out one ip address. So what ever first pc is turned on that is the one that grabs the address.
5.) you will most likly need a router to take the one ip address assigned via att then dole out additional ones. Remember the dss-24 is not a router. It simply connects everyone together. Each device still needs an ip address given from somewhere. Your old cable modem probibly did that but your new att dsl most likly does not.hence the new router will do that.....
to set it up do the following
2.) Find out the ip setup needed for your dsl service
A.) gateway ip
B.) primary & secondary dns server ip`s
C.) subnet mask
3.) get into the setup of your new router and then plugg in
all of these values using a fixed if address in the router
4.) connect routers wan port to one of the modems port. u may have to use a cross cable or straight look at the link lites to find out if they are talking to each other
5.) make sure that the routers lan side is setup for DHCP
6.) connect one lan port off the router to an uplink
of the dss-24. Then reboot everything
7.) viola it should all work internet on evey machine and file sharring.
erm dude your modem connection doesn't go in the router. It will either not fit or fry the router.
Anyways, You should have a cord with it that can go in the computer or (Maybe dsl box if you got one, then put the other cord into the computer) If you got a cord that goes in the computer put it to share the internet connect (right click it on the modem connection and click properties then advanced then Share my connection (XP, VISTA, WINDOWS 7 ONLY))
Can you provide some details about your setup? like the name of your ISP? if it's cable or dsl? brand/model or your modem and or router, and operating system of your computer (windows XP, vista, MAC)
you may want to start to check if you have properly connected your devices (cable used, port). If the connections are ok, check the LED lights and settings on your modem, router and computer (if you need to setup PPPoE on your router or computer if on DSL or do MAC registration or cloning for cable service.
