    I just got Cable internet, and I would like to know how I can get it running with my D-Link Router. what settings should I use and what not?? I know they use a protocol called DHCP. The guy that came to install it installed it on one machine already... but I want it in the router... not that machine. thanx in advance.

    1.) well first your gonna make sure you have a NIC(lan card) in your other PC that you want to have internet access.
    2.) Your gonna want to plug your router in where you want it set up. and decide how much CAT-5 cable your going to need.(the cord they used to connect your modem to your NIC.
    3.) Then your going to want to unplug the CAT-5 from your pc and insert it into the router where it says WAN(wide are network).
    4.) Then with another CAT-5 cable insert that into one of your other ports (looks like NIC jacks) then insert the other end of the cable into your pc.
    Depending on the ease of your router if you follow setps 4 with your other PC you should be okay. Let me know if you can get online after you have done this.

    do you at least have it hooked up. or is there an issue there. becouse from what I see, it's not USB from what I can see. And if you do have everything hooked up try powering everything down, PC, Modem , and Router so they can release the IP and bring up a new IP for Router and so that your PC picks up the Routers assigned IP

    ahhh.....I'm not sure how you get into your set up for this router but make sure the PoPPe*(not sure on the spelling) is not set up or else it wont work.
