    what si the ip address and dns that your pc is getting?

  • r_goates Apr 29, 2011

    I found a fix. The problem was the DSL modem acts as a router also, so the normal setup for the DIR-815 will not work. I changed the 815's IP address (it was the same local address as the DSL router, by default) and connected the DSL router to a numbered ethernet port on the 815 (instead of the "internet" port) and it worked.

SOURCE: Cannot connect to internet via Actiontec M1000 (Qwest)

open internet explorer, go to tools, internet options, then the connections tab and make sure ' never dial a connection' is ticked, assuming you had a dial up connection before using the router, other than that you need to check the routers settings, like the password /username for your ISP connection and assuming you originally set it up using an RJ45 lan cable (supplied) before using the wireless.

SOURCE: d-link 614+ will not connect with Qwest M1000 modem

Well what everybody really doesnt know is that if Qwest provided you with a modem named Actiontech that modem has the same ip address of router so just change routers ip address to 172.16.0.1 and subnet mask to 255.255.0.0 and the problem should be solved.Im a product specialist for dlink.

Yes, if the other isp is also providing dsl services, but you will have to configure the device the other isp will not help you with that.

but its really not that difficult.

check your ip address and see if your getting both IP and DNS address.
check your router and see if it has a WAN address by going to 192.168.0.1
if not power cycle the cable or dsl modem and then your router and try again.

Plug your internet into the router then, the router to the computer. Go to your network settings and run the network setup. This will change the settings in windows to except the router into the network. You may have to restart the computer. This should give you internet access to your computer through your router.

My DIR-655 won't work!


It would be helpful if you could be a bit more specific regarding the way you hooked up the dir 655 to your network and your specifc DSL modem. If the modem you are using is the Actiontec M1000 DSL modem you will not be able to obtain internet access because the DIR 655 is trying to route an already routed IP, the M1000 has a built in router / DHCP that by default is enabled. You can use option 1, access the configuration settings of your M1000 and change the WAN configuration to act as a transparent bridge. After doing so and rebooting the modem you will have to enter your DSL login information like a PPPoE username and password for example into your DIR 655 network settings. With this configuration the modem simply acts as a bridge to relay data directly to the DIR 655 and the 655 itself provides login credentials to obtain internet from your DSL provider as well as hand out IP addresses to the local network. Option 2 is to continue to use the M1000 as a router by default and disable DHCP on your DIR 655 so that it essentially acts as nothing more than a switch or wireless access point while the M1000 hands out local IP addresses. I personally would recommend using the DIR 655 to route IP's as it's got far more configuration utilities than the M1000 does as a router, and really what's the point of getting the 655 if you're only going to use it as a switch or access point when there are other simpler and cheaper devices that could do that for you.

Want to use Dlink DI-514 with Qwest modem to hardwire 2 computers


Believe it or not, Actiontec modems from Qwest are setup as a router already (even though ports are missing from it). You should use a switch instead of another router. Otherwise you will have to configure the DI-514 to act as a switch rather than a router. This is done by assigning a new starting IP address into your DI-514. By default both routers use 192.168.0.1 as the default. You will have to plug the DI-514 seperately into a computer (to take it off the network) and assign a new starting IP address for the DI-514 such as 10.150.1.1 for example. Then you will be able to get it work. I would strongly recommend using a switch instead and turn the wireless on the modem itself (this is why the modem is the router). It will save you some headaches if the power goes out.

Problem between my Qwest actiontec modem and D-link router


You need to sign into the dlink router and check the status tab, to make sure that the router has picked up the modems IP address. it sound like it hasn't, and is just assigning lan IPs to the client machines, butd oes not have a valid WAN IP to the internet.

If it hasnt got a wan ip, you want to do a hard boot on the router .unplug the router ONLY for 30 sec, and power back up the router only ...not the modem this should allow the router to find the modem IP

Ip problem


It is common to have this as the default IP to connect to equipment.

I suggest you unplug your modem while you set up your router. You can also change the default IP for the router while in the settings. be sure to remember the new IP or you will have to do a factory reset to get it back to default
