Re: paradyne problem 6218
If the address you mention is correct, try reseting the router first, (normally a little hole at back), then typing in again, although most routers have a 192.168.x.x reference and not 198.168.x.x as you mention.

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 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1.
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.
Did it *EVER* work, or is this a "first-time" setup problem?
1. You need a "straight-through" Ethernet cable between the WAN (not LAN) port on the router to your modem.
2. You need a _working_ Ethernet cable between the modem and the router.
3. You need to turn the modem on.
4. You need to turn the router on.
5. You need to connect your PC to the router, and access the router's built-in web-server, and then view the router's "WAN-status" web-page. While on that page, click 'Renew IP address".
The dhcp setting does not affect the modem's address. your login address should be the same. If the browser is saying page cannot be displayed, use refresh or the back key to get back to the original login address.
It seems like you have a very big problem. If you are successfully connnected to the wireless router, you can check the the ip address of the router by doing an ipconfig in command prompt, check the default gateway and try to access using IE browser. The next problem is accessing the router when you are prompted to enter the username and password, the default is username: admin password: admin, depending on the model, if it is customized, you will have to reset the router to access it and configure the mac filtering or enable wireless security to deny the person who is taking up your bandwidth. You dont have to access the Paradyne modem to configure everything, if you want to find out if it is running DHCP, you can connect a PC wired(straight UTP cable) with all the network settings at default and check if you can get an ip using ipconfig with the command prompt. The main thing here is to reset your wireless routers to factory defaults(use the button at the back) to re-organize your connection and setup a security for unwanted users.
Inform me if there are other questions or clarifications you need regarding the problem.
If I understand you right, what you want is to use your Paradyne 6211 modem to share the Internet connection to 2 PCs. One is connected through the USB and the second through Ethernet port.
Tried it on a Siemens 4200 and a Prolink Hurricane 9000, both worked and can be done. To be sure, the IP settings of the PC connected via Ethernet was set to manual configuration. In your case try IP 192.168.1.3, Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0, Default Gateway 192.168.1.1, DNS Servers - whatever your ISP are using. You of course can try and see if it works in your modem.
Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
