Question about Paradyne 6381 ADSL2+/ReachDSL Router (6381A3200)
i have 2 pcs that i use to connect to the internet, i currently use a paradyne 6381-a3 router/modem to connect to the internet (adsl), it is configured as a bridge and dhcp is enabled. i am using the ethernet port to connect and it assigns ip addresses automatically when connected to a pc, however only one pc can be used at one time.
i want to to use both usb and ethernet ports on the router to connect both pcs at the same time. is that possible? one pc will connect via ethernet and the other via usb, simultaneously.
please assist in a solution, any help will be appreciated.
Hi; I have used it with both ethernet and usb connections at the same time. I have never used the bridge, but I use it at home.
Try this ( I have XP SP3): Right-click on the monitors where the clock is (lower right corner), select "Open Network Connections". Go to the LAN connection and r-click "Properties". On the "general" tab select "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)". There you select "Obtain IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server automatically" then click "Ok" until exit. Either Shut Down or Restart the PC. Check if this work.

Connecting the Devices Together
After confirming the Internet connection through the modem, connect the modem to the Internet port of the router; connect the computer to any of the four Ethernet ports at the back of the router. For instructions, click here.
Checking the Router's LEDs
After connecting the devices together, check the lights on the front panel of the router. Ensure that the Internet light, as well as numbered light corresponding to the Ethernet port where the computer is connected, is lit. For further instructions, click here.
Setting Up a Linksys Router for Cable Internet Connection
Access the router's web-based setup page. For instructions, click here.
NOTE: If you are using a Mac computer to access the router's web-based setup page, click here.
On the Setup tab, click the MAC Address Clone sub-tab.
Select Enabled then click Clone My PC's MAC.
Click Save Settings.
Click the Status tab.
Check the Internet IP Address. If the Internet IP Address has numbers, this means the router has been properly configured. You should now be able to access the Internet. If you're still unable to access the Internet, powercycle the modem, the router and then restart the computer.
NOTE: If the IP address is still 0.0.0.0, click IP Address Release then, click IP Address Renew. If this does not change the IP Address, powercycle the modem, the router and then restart the computer.
