The flashing DSL light means that the modem isn't seeing the DSL signal on the phone line it's connected to. This might be due to modem failure, but it might also indicate a phone line problem. The most common trouble I run across is an unfiltered device connected on the line that interferes with the DSL signal. Other than the modem, all devices (phones, fax machines, security systems, etc.) need to be connected to the line through a filter. Check to be sure something hasn't been connected without a filter. Sometimes a phone gets moved or a new phone is added that gets plugged in to a handy jack without being filtered.
If you can, try connecting another modem to the line. You may be able to borrow one, or find one at a resale shop. I see them quite often for only a couple of dollars, leftover from people changing to FiOS or cable service. This can help determine if the modem is responsible.
One final possibility: your DSL service has been cut off. I've had two cases where loss of DSL was a phone company issue that they needed to fix at their office. (One following some wiring work done in apartment building, the other when service was mistakenly disconnected from the wrong customer.)
This kind of trouble can be a headache to solve, but it can be solved. Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!
Do you mean DSL? DSL still requires an interface called a modem. You will connect your dsl to one "side" of the modem and your computer to the other (side) of the same device. Your modem may have a RJ-45 or a USB or a cable and/or a RJ-11 and possibly other ports. I'm sure there will be instructions with your new device.
Reset the router and try it with the WPA2. If you haven't you should update firmware to version 1.05. This version fixes the WPA2 authentication issue. However, be forewarned that if you update to this version, it seems to reboot the router if you put too much traffic through it...
2 wireless laptops are connecting. that means the router must be working properly. Only 1 laptop is not connecting. Try to change the wireless channel on the router. For this you will need to open the set up page of the router. Is there any computer connected to the router ? If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router and open the set up page. Under wireless settings try to change the wireless channel on the router and see if that works.
Some ISPs (Internet Service Providers) require that you "register" the 'MAC' (not an Apple --> Media Acquisition Control) address of the network-adapter of your computer (or router) with the ISP,
before the ISP will allow your computer (or router) to be provisioned.
Your router has a different MAC-address than your computer.
So, your computer works with its "registered" MAC-address,
but your router cannot connect with its "unregistered" MAC-address.
Access the web-server inside the router, and click the 'Clone MAC-address' button, and restart the router.
Then, the router will send the MAC-address of your computer, rather than its own MAC-address, to your ISP.
1 - The power adaptor of the DSL Router is not working,
2 - the Telephone cable is not connected properly
3 - If it's a cable modem then the cable is not connected properly
4 - Check with you service provider if he's made changes in the exchange and if you need a new DSL router.
Your DSL service provider should be able to solve this issue.
Check your physical connection first. From the modem, it should be connected to the router's Internet port, then your computer must be connected to port 1 on the back of the router. Then do a power cycle, no need to run the setup CD. If it doesn't work, you need to manually configure the router. You may need assistance from D-Link tech support. Call their toll free number
-- who is your internet service provider -- what is the operating system of your computer? -- is this working fine before or is this a brand new router
you may try this and see if this help solve your problem. make sure your computer is directly connected to the router
Step 1: Shutdown the computer. Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable. Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds. Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable. Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable. Step 6: Power on the computer on and configure the router settings Step 7: test the Internet connection.
if this still didnot work, upgrade the firmware of your router
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
Sounds like you need to 'copy' the mac address of the computer it was orginally hooked to before and put it into the router. Some routers have an option to do this in the settings menu of the router with one click.
