Had the same problem after switching from a Speedtouch modem. I powered down all components and connected the ethernet cable between my wireless router (Linksys WRT5G) and the Paradyne modem. After powering up up, it worked seamlessly. Hope this helps.

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 or

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.

No Internet via zoom X6 wireless router to desk top, lap top ok.

Access your zoom router by using the laptop which still has access to the router.

Your going to have to open your Wireless Network Connection Status window located under your network settings.

If you see this window your going to left click the (details) button

Now you should see a IP DNS server address
for example:

Type that address onto the address bar of your web browser.

it should take you to your router setup page.

There you will need to check if the lan port is enabled

How can I connect my alltel internet card to my wii system

Unfortunately you cannot insert your USB modem into your Wii and have it recognized. Your Wii does not have the ability to operate plug and play devices in the way that your lap top does. The Wii needs to be hooked up to a LAN (local area network) via a wireless G connection from a wireless router or wireless capable modem, or hard wired to a modem or router with an ethernet cable (looks like a big phone wire).

There is a way to share your lap tops internet connection using an ethernet switch (depending on your operating system). If this is an option that you wish to explore and you have the necessary hardware, re-post asking how to set up a shared internet connection using a computer as a residential gateway. Depending on your operating system this can be done quite easily. You will need a computer with an internet connection (which you have), a 10/100 Ethernet switch, and two Ethernet cables. A switch is relatively inexpensive and the wires are as well.

I hope that this helps you with your problem.

Good Luck!

Using both USB and Ethernet port to connect to the Internet

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.

Home networking.

do you have a pci network adapter intalled with the proper drivers ? did you plug in ethernet cable directly into current pci lan card it will be located on lower part of back of computer? this will eliminate the problems with the router just to see if pci lancard is working or not . if the lan card is working unplug cable and plug in router and then try with router plugged in u might need to reset the router in order for it to work with lan card . if ur using and onboard lan eg attached to the motherboard then you must go into computer bios and enable onboard lan and then the ethernet cable should work with no problem good luck i hope this helps you get up and going getback to me if there are future problems.

plug the cable to one of the ports on the hub which I'm sure you tried... if not, there should be a port marked with an "X" which means it's a cross over port which might do the trick. Just make sure the port next to that port is free (not plugged to anything).

Do you get any lights when you plug an ethernet cable between the router and the hub?
