Question about D-Link DSL 604G (DSL-604G) Router

1 Answer

I have a DSL-6740U Wireless Router, and subscribe to 30Mbps service from my DSL AND my ISP provider. The results of (local)speed tests show between 25 and 29 Mbps, but never 30 or over. I close programs before testing. The router is brand new and is sitting about a foot away from my fairly new laptop running Vista Home Premium. I have my Router set to 100% power, turn off firewall (because I have Mcafee Anti-Virus provided by my DSL provider, turn on UpNp and turn off QOS. Bands are set to auto. Any suggestions on how to tweak the router to push speed up?

Router set up for Cable Internet service provider :

This connection type uses the MAC address of the main computer to identify your connection. They generally register the MAC address of the main computer. So the MAC address is everything in this connection type. Now we set up router using the MAC address of the main computer. Main computer is the computer which was able to go online through the modem. Use only the main computer to set uo the router.
Connect the modem and the computer to the router . Check the IP address on the computer.

Router set up for DSL Internet service provider.

What is DSL connection?
DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) is a high-speed Internet service that competes with cable Internet to provide online access to local customers. DSL operates over standard copper telephone lines like dial-up service, but is many times faster than dial-up. In addition to being faster than dial-up, DSL does not tie up the phone line. Coexisting with telephone service in this way allows users to surf the Net and use the phone at the same time.

There are two types of DSL connection

1 ) PPPOE : In this connection type you will get user name and password from the Internet service provider. Your computer will not be able to go online when connected to the modem only. You can open the router set up and change the Internet connection type to pppoe and type the user name and password for the ISP. After that change the wireless settings of the router and it will be ready to go.
2) DHCP : In this connection type your computer will be able to go online when you connect it directly to the modem.
you don't require the user anme and password for the ISP.

Im trying hook up a wireless router and it ask what kind of conection I have static ip ect... How do I know what I have? Im using DSL.


Most residential subscriber services use dynamic IP addressing. Dynamic IP addressing is automatic from your Internet Service Provider (ISP). Linksys home based products such as the one you have should be setup up for this configuration out of the box by default, and require no adjustments to the IP configuration of the wireless router.

You should power down the DSL modem and Linksys, then connect them, then reapply power. This will clear the DSL modem if it was connected to another device such as a PC. This is important as most cable and DSL modems use something called MAC address binding that will only allow one device to connect to it directly at a time.

Will comcast support Actiontec - ADSL Modem with 802.11g Wireless Router and 4-Port Ethernet Switch


Comcast will not support that kind of modem. Comcast is a Cable ISP thus the ADSL modem won't work with them because ADSL modem is for DSL providers. Cable Company uses different protocol than DSL. But Comcast will provide you the cable modem if you subscribe to them.
