Re: D-Link Ethernet Broadband Router
What I would do for the computers that can't get internet connection. Basically just connect to it wirelessly with a wireless adapter that I talked below,
1.I would go buy some "USB" wireless adapters you can get them for $15-25.00 USD Linksys carriers ones that I use,heres a link to what it looks like. http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Product_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1115416827517&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=2751739789B16
that is the one I use for my Desktop.
Once you get those setup and install the drivers with the disk that come with the wireless adapter you just connect to the router wirelessly.

First: Connect your computer directly to the ADSL modem. It has an Ethernet port.
If you can't get to the Internet while your computer is connected directly to the modem, then ytour router never will either. Call ISP if you can't connect to the Internet when directly conencted to the modem. Next: Check your router wires again, The modem must be connected to the "special" port on the router. Look at the router. There is one port separated from the rest. Connect the modem to that port. Conenct to the Internet. Still no Internet?
Reset your router by pushing a stylus (straightened-out paperclip) into the reset "hole" on the router (with router powered ON).
Push & hold for 30 seconds or until the lights do their reset dance. Connect to the INternet.
Put the setup disk in your computer and it will step you through the process.
Typically, you will have to hook your computer directly to an internet connection (with ethernet cable), then unhook it and connect the internet cable to the router (usually in port 1), then connect an ethernet cable from the router to your computer and plug in the router.
The disk should download the appropriate software and walk you through setting up a password and stuff.
After all that, you can unhook your computer and use it wirelessly.
unless you were switching from DSL to cable Broadband, there usually wouldnt be much reason to rerun the software just because you got a new computer. when you ran the software the first time on the other computer, it was the router you were setting up, not the computer. if the new computer is not getting internet when hooked to the router, try this.
1.turn off computer and unplug electricity from router and cable modem.
2. connect all ethernet cable to the right location. ethernet from modem to router goes in the non-numbered port, ethernet from your computer to router goes in numbered port.
3. plug in cable modem electricity first, wait for all its lights to come on like normal.(this part is important). the ethernet light on the modem (it might be labeled ethernet, link, pc link, or something similar) will not be lit, this is normal until you get to the next step
4. plug in the router electricity, give the router 2-3 minutes to get connected to the modem.
5. start up the computer, wait for everything to fully load and check internet again.
was the router used by previous users? or did you buy it? if it was used then it was probably configured for different ISP. You don't need any CD. Just connect to the router via your browser (probably http://192.168.1.1) and adjust settings in WAN section.
Hi Sherry - The etherport port on your modem should be connected to the WAN port on your router. You then connect your pc to one of the 4 ethernet ports on the router. If this answers your question PLEASE rate this as fixed. If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.
You could do this, it would be a bit of work! You would have to dedicate the computer with the sprint card to provide the internet connection to your router, which would then supply all the other computers with internet.
Assuming you have windows XP or Vista on the machine with the sprint card you would enable Internet Connection Sharing, which would provide an internet connection into whatever is plugged into the ethernet port, your router.
The PC and Mac don't interact when they are connected to the router. The router provides a DHCP server, and the PC and Mac should simply log in to the router and run fine. If the router is a new addition too, you'll need to connect the WAN port on the router to your DSL or Cable Modem's ethernet port... and then hook up the computers to any of the open ethernet ports on the router. An ethernet port looks like an extra large phone cable connector.
