Re: Is DI-744P has limitation on how many computers can...
Here is what I got from the backside of my D-Link router
H/W Ver: C2FW Ver. 3.04
Mac ID: 000F3D-16AFBA
Thanks for the reply I hope what I got from the back and I hope this will justify what you want to know. I just want to know if the router I'm using has a limit on how many computer can it serve only. My ISP is always been in time-out and I'm using a 2mb speed for the 27 PC I have. My PC is not only used in surfing and chating but also for online gaming.
Thanks and looking forward for your reply. More power to you and FixYa.

I presume you are attempting to access your router by typing the numeric address (e.g., 192.168.1.1) into your browser.
The address you are typing into your browser is apparently the address of your DSL modem, not your wireless router. This address may be subtly different, e.g., 192.168.0.1.
I suggest you pull up the window that shows your computer's network address, its netmask, and its server address. The server address is the one you need to type into your browser.
If this still gets you your DSL modem, it could be that you have configured your router to provide the same range of addresses on its LAN side as your DSL modem provides on your router's WAN side. This is an unworkable configuration. You will need to disconnect the DSL modem from the router so that you talk ONLY to the router, and change its configuration to use a different address range.
It's hard to get more specific without knowing what addresses you are using or how your network is set up. The above is a general overview of what you need to do to solve this problem.
OK, if I understand:
telephone----DSL Modem--di 524--computer.
That is what you are supposed to do.
Has any configuration of these devices ever had any connectivity?
1. Is the DSL modem in "Bridge Mode"? That is the first thing I'd check.
2. Are you using the right wires and ports? There may be a DCE-DTE problem. Be sure you have used the wire that came with the DSL modem to hook it to the internet port on the DI-524.
3. What is the state of all the various lights? Do they show that you have valid connections?
4. Most of these devices can be configured with a browser. When you browse them, what do you see?
5. What is windows telling you?
I f you have more than 100 computers you may have switch use the switch as the dhcp server if it is managable or use one of your pcs as DHCP server
if users are not roaming better you can use static ip
You have to make the Ip changes on the laptop not on the modem.
You said you have internet acces on one computer. Then use that computer to find out the exact IP address used by the modem.
On the laptop use the exact same numbers, (IP, Sub mask, Gateway, Primary DNS)
and chek if it works.
If you want to have both computers on the Internet, simply change the last number on the IP address ONLY.
