Question about D-Link DI-704P Router
I just had cable internet installed. I have 1 computer OS - XP Media Center Edition, The other computer OS Vista Premium Home Edition. I have a D-Link DI-704P residentual router and a April Cable Modem Model TM402G/110. The computers work fine independently on the modem but, neither can find the router. I spoke with Brighthouse and they told me I need to configure the router to get the appropriate IP addresses they don't know how to do it? Can anyone give a guy some help ?
Make sure that the cables are in the right place, computers should be connected to one of the 4 ethernet ports and the cable from the modem goes to the WAN port of the router, here's a picture, the WAN port is the closest one to the print server port.
If this is ok and still no internet than try to power down the router and the modem for a bit like 5-10 sec and put power back on, first the modem than the router, if this didn't help you out than you have to do some deeper configuration.
First you need to log in to the router while connected via cable to it. Open a web browser and type 192.168.0.1(it's the default ip address of the router), if it's not asking for username and password than start menu>run type in CMD and press enter, a DOS window will pop, type in IPCONFIG and press enter, the command's output will be something like this
The default gateway is what you need, that's the router's address, type that in the browser, it will ask for username and password, by default it's
Password: (just leave it blannk, no password)
or if it's not working:
You can use the wizard to finish the job, and don't forget to push the clone the MAC address button during the process. That should do it, but if you still have problems there's a very very detaliled howto from D-link over here.
