Using both USB and Ethernet port to connect to the Internet

Hello,

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.

I have a dynex 8 port gigabit ethernet switch. I see 8 ports but do not see a port to put the incoming ethernet wire. I put it in port 1 and put an outbound in port 2 but cannot connect to the internet.


Hello
Connections should go.Main internet to router,then from router to dynex switch,then to pc or pcs.
There is no main internet ethernet port, as this is just a switch.You need a Router before the dynex switch.

My company provided me wired internet using Paradyne 6381 wired modem. it works fine. I have D Link 2640 T wirelss modem + router available with me. Please advise me how do I connect available D link 2640...


Since your D-Link 2640 is a modem + router it may not work the way you intend.

You need just a wireless router without modem.

Run a small Ethernet patch cable from your Paradyne modem into the WAN port on your router, you can plug your existing Ethernet cable into one of the other LAN ports on the router, then access the router setup using the computer connected to the Ethernet cable using a browser and putting the router's IP address into the address line of your browser. It will most likely be 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1.

Once you have configured the Wi-Fi router you will have your wireless network. Full instructions should come with the router.

Routers are available for as little as $29.95 but expect to pay closer to $79.95 for satisfactory speed and capability.

Trouble with paradyne or linksys


Just saw your post, so please accept my apologies for being almost a month late in responding, as I only joined this service on March 26th.

1. When a modem has both usb and ethernet, only ONE of the two should be used as most isp modems will allow one or the other.

2. Your Vonage should be discreet and not intermingled with the rest of your system. It would be better to connect the Vonage to a router, and not the router to the Vonage. iow, do not connect the Vonage modem between the isp's modem and your router.

3. denigration of service or slowdown is typical with VOIP if more than 2 systems whether telephone or other systems are connected, due to the ringer voltage splitting that occurs when you put more units on the Vonage, or any other Voip modem. One ISP solves this by providing separate outputs for Voip and Ethernet.

Observation of these rules should speed up your system.

Connection of Paradyne 6211 to iMac (OS 10.5) via Ethernet


Hi,

If you connect by using LAN port (RJ 45) you don't have to install driver. However USB connection will require driver. Do you have Ethernet adapter installed to you iMAC? If you have it will be resolved easily without using USB port. Check the following link for connection instructions
http://www.fixya.com/support/p200812-paradyne_6211_a2_200_router/manual-18800/page-18

If physical connection is successful you can go to internet browser type 192.168.1.1 and check your modem's settings. Please post if you need further assistance

Good Luck

Paradyne Dsl Modem


Hi, If I understand you right, what you want is to use your Paradyne 6211 modem to share the Internet connection to 2 PCs. One is connected through the USB and the second through Ethernet port. Tried it on a Siemens 4200 and a Prolink Hurricane 9000, both worked and can be done. To be sure, the IP settings of the PC connected via Ethernet was set to manual configuration. In your case try IP 192.168.1.3, Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0, Default Gateway 192.168.1.1, DNS Servers - whatever your ISP are using. You of course can try and see if it works in your modem. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
