Make sure you disable or uninstall any PPPoE software such as WinPoet, Broadjump, or Enternet 300 from your computer or you will not be able to connect to the Internet. Do not disable until you´ve downloaded the firmware in Step 1. Please make sure that your modem is not also a router. If it is or you do not know, please contact your ISP and change the modem to Bridge mode. Note: In some areas, BellSouth and Verizon may not use PPPoE. Step 1 Upgrade to the latest firmware. Step 2 Take a paperclip and perform a hard reset. With unit on, use a paperclip and hold down the reset button on the back of the unit for 10 seconds. Release it and the router will recycle, the lights will blink, and then stabilize. Step 3 After the router stabilizes, open your web browser (Internet Explorer, Netscape, etc), enter into the address window, and hit the Enter key. When the password dialog box appears, enter the username admin and leave the password blank. Click OK. If the password dialog box does not come up repeat Step 2. Note: Do not run Wizard. Step 4 Click on the WAN tab on left-hand side of the screen. Select PPPoE. Step 5 Select Dynamic PPPoE (unless your ISP supplied you with a static IP address). Step 6 For Earthlink users, under the username field enter ELN/[email protected] and your password, where username is your own username (some Earthlink users may not need the ELN/ in front of username). For SBC Global users, enter [email protected]. For Ameritech users, enter [email protected]. For BellSouth users, enter [email protected].** For most other ISPs, enter username. **Note: In some areas, BellSouth may not use PPPoE. Ameritech users: If you cannot connect, try entering just the username (without the @ameritech.com) and then put ameritech.net in the Service Name box. Step 7 Maximum Idle Time should be set to zero. Set MTU to 1492, unless specified by your ISP, and set Autoreconnect to Enabled. Note: If you experience problems accessing certain websites and/or email issues, please set the MTU to a lower number such as 1472, 1452, etc. Contact your ISP for more information and the proper MTU setting for your connection. Step 8 Click Apply. When prompted, click Continue. Once the screen refreshes, unplug the power to the D-Link router. Step 9 Turn off your DSL modem for 2-3 minutes. Turn back on. Once the modem has established a link to your ISP, plug the power back into the D-Link router. Wait about 30 seconds and log back into the router. Step 10 Click on the Status tab in the web configuration where you can view the device info. Under WAN, click Connect. Click Continue when prompted. You should now see that the device info will show an IP address, verifying that the device has connected to a server and has been assigned an IP address.

D-Link DSL-2750U N300 ADSL Modem Wireless Router configuration with Hathway


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.

As soon as i plug in my d link wireless router into my laptop i loose my internet conection why is this

The router should be configured manually if it didn't work atuomatically. If you are on DSL ISP, configure the router on PPPoE connection type. If you are Cable ISP, configure the router for MAC Cloning. You can read the manual on how to do PPPoE or MAC Cloning.

I can not get on the net via my router. I can get out on my laptop directly connected to DSL modem. what am i doing wrong?

That means your router is not yet configured for internet access. If you are on DSL, your modem's IP and router's IP might be conflicting with each other. You need to change the router's IP address. If not, you can simply configure PPPoE settings on the router's admin page. If you can open the router's setup page, look for Internet Connection Type, choose PPPoE and provide the information that it asks you like username and password given by your DSL provider.

Switching DSL Modems

Your dsl line stays the same. you're only changing your dsl equipment.

if you are not able to go online using the 327w, you might need to have it configured depending on the type of connection that you have. if you are using PPPoE (which means you enter a username and password on the modem to connect to verizon) you need your 327w configured for pppoe. but if you are using DHCP connection, any modem or routers should be plug and play.

Most verizon customers from the west coast uses DHCP while those on the east coast uses PPPoE.

You can call tech support to make sure which type of connection you are using.

DSL connection not being shared by Linksys RV042 Dual Wan router

Looks like your "modem" is actually a gateway, as is common with DSL devices. It's acting like a modem and a router. So you're actually connecting a router to your RV42. You could get this to work a couple ways.
1. Leave the modem acting like a router and configure the WAN connection on the RV42 as a static IP, and use the IP of the modem. You may also be able to use "obtain IP automatically" in the WAN connection. This way, the modem stores your PPOE information and just forwards the traffic to the RV42. Any devices behind the RV42 won't know the difference.
2. Configure the modem as just a modem (no routing). Your ISP should be able to talk you through this, but in the modem configuration you can look for what's usually called "bridged mode." Then you would enter the PPOE information in the RV42. This is my preferred method.

configuring the router settings will depends who is your provider. if your isp is dsl you need to configure your ISP username and password on the router. if your router is a cable no need to change any settings on the router. it should automatically work

D-Link DSL-2640

First I will need to know the type of ISP service you have, T1 - DSL - ADSL - CABLE - etc. And the connection type, STATIC IP - DYNAMIC IP - PPPOE - etc. BPCS


If your have software from your DSL provider such as "WinPoet" or "Enternet300" or you need to run a program (other than your browser) from your desktop to connect to the Internet, then you will need to configure your router for PPPoE.
