How to first time d link connection and broadband for 2 PC. setup information pl.


Here is what you need to do.
1. Prepare the modem provided to you by your internet service provider. If you are wired broadband subsidiary......connect the phone line to the modem (if a splitter is attached make sure that modem labeled out is connected to the modem line input).
2. Now connect modem and d-link. Using a lan cable from the modem connect it to wan port of the d-link.
3. Connect the two pc's using another lan cable from the lan card at the back of your pc to the lan ports of the d-link.
That's the setup.

Try to turn all devices and the pcs and see if that connects.

If you are planning on accessing the ip configuration of the dlink, type in the address bar of your internet browser 192.168.0.1... default username is "user" leave password blank.

Should you have anymore queries, just post back.
Thanks

How to connect netgear fs108 to cable modem


leeb..... switches cannot be connected to the Cable modem.... because NAT will not be enabled in cable modem....so there wont be any DHCP server present in the cable modem....
Nat will be enabled only in DSL modem like AT&T verizon etc....So DHCP server will be present inside DSL modem...that is the reason why switches can be connected only to the DSL modem....
With NAT enabled modem, switch will work as a switch.... With NAT disabled modem, switch will work as a hub.... This is the difference....
Any doubts further ? please clarify with me.... I am ready to help you....

DES-1008D connectivity issues.


Is the modem a DSL or cable model?
Does the router have one ethernet port and a WAN port?
Normally the broadband modem is connected to the WAN port on the router and the ethernet port on the router is then connected to the hub/switch and the computers are then connected to the hub/switch.
The modem gets an unique IP address from your Internet Service Provider and then the router then issues Class "C" IP addresses to each computer that is connected to the switch/hub.

When I connect a DSL router to my switch, either the link goes down or the router hangs. I'm connecting via a cross-cable as the switch does not have an uplink port. Any ideas?


Maybe your cable is bad.
Have you tried a different cable.

I just read the specs and it seems like quite a modern switch.
I'd be surprised if the ports aren't auto sensing so either a straight or cross over cable should work.

You could try a factory reset on the switch.

Another idea is connect to your DSL modem direclty from you pc and from your browser open the modems config page There should be some kind of event log in there somewhere. See if anything gets logged when the link goes down. It might give you some idea where to look. Your modem manual should tell you how to find the event logs. I take it your DSL modem only has one ether net port?

Hope this helps

Connect Linksys 8-Port Switch to two PC's, a modem and printer


What's the model number of it? Is it a router/switch? Or just a switch?

The modem would go into a WLAN port. Everything else would go into the numbered ports.

If you pass me the model number then I can provide more information.

You'll want to connect one computer or laptop to it first before setting it up so you can configure the correct settings. You'll need the admin password. If it's just a switch, then you can just plug in; however, I strongly advise putting a router in between a modem and switch. You want to have a firewall in place.

D-link cant accesed internet 4pc


Most of DSL modems are connected to PC with USB cable...
n if ur server is connected with other pc on lan .. you can use internet sharing option available in winxp.

Following are the steps to enable Internetsharing for other pcs.


How to use Internet Connection Sharing loadTOCNode(2, 'summary'); To use Internet Connection Sharing to share your Internet connection, the host computer must have one network adapter that is configured to connect to the internal network, and one network adapter or modem that is configured to connect to the Internet.

On the host computer loadTOCNode(3, 'summary'); On the host computer, follow these steps to share the Internet connection:
  1. Log on to the host computer as Administrator or as Owner.
  2. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  3. Click Network and Internet Connections.
  4. Click Network Connections.
  5. Right-click the connection that you use to connect to the Internet. For example, if you connect to the Internet by using a modem, right-click the connection that you want under Dial-up.
  6. Click Properties.
  7. Click the Advanced tab.
  8. Under Internet Connection Sharing, select the Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection check box.
  9. If you are sharing a dial-up Internet connection, select the Establish a dial-up connection whenever a computer on my network attempts to access the Internet check box if you want to permit your computer to automatically connect to the Internet.
  10. Click OK. You receive the following message: When Internet Connection Sharing is enabled, your LAN adapter will be set to use IP
    address 192.168.0.1. Your computer may lose connectivity with other computers on
    your network. If these other computers have static IP addresses, it is a good idea to set them
    to obtain their IP addresses automatically. Are you sure you want to enable Internet
    Connection Sharing?
  11. Click Yes.
The connection to the Internet is shared to other computers on the local area network (LAN). The network adapter that is connected to the LAN is configured with a static IP address of 192.168.0.1 and a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0

let me know if it helps.

best regards,
