I have the router connected to the PC through the Ethernet cable, and the power and WAN LED lights are steadily on and the WLAN LED and status LED lights are flashing. I have the Bigpond Next G Wireless Modem, so I am unable to connect the router with the modem. Is there any way at all to use the DIR-300 router?

If you are connecting the router to a cable DSL satellite modem, please follow the steps below: 1. Place the router in an open and central location. Do not plug the power adapter into the router. 2. Turn the power off on your modem. If there is no on/off switch, then unplug the modem's power adapter. Shut down your computer.3. Unplug the Ethernet cable (that connects your computer to your modem) from your computer and place it into the WAN port on the router.4. Plug an Ethernet cable into one of the four LAN ports on the router. Plug the other end into the Ethernet port on your computer.5. Turn on or plug in your modem. Wait for the modem to boot (about 30 seconds).6. Plug the power adapter to the router and connect to an outlet or power strip. Wait about 30 seconds for the router to boot.7. Turn on your computer.8.

How to quickly install and use your Belkin wireless G router1.Step 1 Position your Belkin wireless G router.
Place your wireless G router in a wide open and central location. Don't connect the power plug into the router, yet. Make sure your computer is turned off. 2.Step 2 Connect all the devices.
Find the Ethernet cable that connects your PC to the modem. Unplug the Ethernet cable from your PC and insert it into the wireless G router's WAN port. You should have an additional Ethernet cable that came with your router. Take this cable and plug one end into one of the LAN ports on the router. Then connect the other end to your PC's Ethernet port. 3.Step 3 Turn on your modem, router, and PC.
Plug the power plug adapter into the modem. Turn on the modem. It'll take approximately 30 seconds for the modem to boot up. Connect the power plug adapter to the router and the other end into a power strip or outlet. Like the modem, it'll take about 30 seconds for the router to boot. Turn on your PC. 4.Step 4 Verify lights are on for your devices.
Make sure the following lights are on for your router: power, WAN, and LAN light. If you don't see any of them lit, confirm these devices are turned on. Make sure the Ethernet cable connections are installed correctly. 5.Step 5 Install and configure software.
Use the setup wizard application to configure your Belkin wireless G router. Set up features, such as creating your password and setting up your time zone. Continue to follow the setup wizard so you can configure other settings.
If the problem is on the side of the modem, the best bet is to unplug your router, reset your modem (through power cycle or reset button), then plug the ethernet cable from the modem into your router, then plug your router back in.
I am assuming that you can connect to your router's web based interface (192.168.0.1).
On a PC LAN wired to the router, open a browser;
Log-in username/admin and password/(blank);
Go to Tools > Misc and the option to select the WAN speed (bottom);
Lock the speed down on the WAN port of your router to 10Mbps (Some versions do not have this feature).
Hope this works for you.
If not pls post back with your modem brand/model. You may also want to log the IP settings (IP Add, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, DNS Servers) of the PC that is directly connected to the modem when you can access the Internet when not using the router.
Good luck and kind regards.
This is because your router is setting your pc at a different IP address than your original modem.
Make sure router is set to enable DHCP which gives out an automatic ip address and check your wireless card and network cards are set to obtain ip address automatically.
It may take a few re-starts to get on the internet as your systems will need to clear their previous DNS settings.
Also i assume you have set up the home network wizard (XP) as you are now using a router and not a direct modem.
Also try Start>Run, then type ipconfig /flushdns then press enter.
