This is fairly easy to do but take a few steps. An Overview:
You need to set your Speedstream into bridged mode, setup the router to make the connection for you once those 2 things are done you should be able to surf NP but you'll want to setup some sort of wireless security.
You'll need an ethernet cable running from a PC to plug into the modem and router as needed. You can do these in either order. This will assume you have power to both the modem and router.The Modem setup:
- Plug the Ethernet from your PC into the modem
- In your web browser browse to »192.168.0.1 This address will be located on a yellow sticker on the bottom of your modem.
- The first screen will ask you for your Modem Access Code. This also will be located on the same yellow sticker.
- Select Advanced from the blue buttons on the left.
- Click the PPP locations button.
- The modem may ask your for the Modem Access Code again. If so type it in again and click continue.
- Select the radio button labeled, "Bridged Mode (PPPoE is not used)"
- Click Save Changes.
- A "PPP Location Warning" page will come up. Click "Change PPP Location."
- A "Restart Needed" page will come up. Click "Restart"
The wording or descriptions might be a little different on yours but this should get you in the ball park. What this just did was shut off the router in the Speedstream and turn it into just a modem. Unplug the Ethernet cable from the modem.The DLINK setup:
- Plug the Ethernet cable into one of the four ports grouped together on the back of the router
- Type in 192.168.0.1 into your browser
- admin is the username leave the password blank and click OK
- Click Manual setup
- In the Connection Type section, click the down arrow and select PPPoE
- The section below that should change
- Leave it set to Dynamic PPPoE
- Then enter the username and password your ISP provided
- Don't worry about the other things but the Connect Mode select, click beside Always On
- Up above in the WAN section click Save Changes
This just set the router to make the connection through your modem. Leave your PC plugged into the router. Take another Ethernet cable, plug it into the modem and the other end into the routers Internet port. The unplug both the router and modem. Plug the modem in and wait a few seconds, then plug in the router and it should be connected. Open another browser window to check.
If you can't surf, plug the PC back into the modem and reset it. Surf back into it by entering the 192.168.0.1 in a browser, enter whatever security it asks, at the login screen, enter your user name and password and click Connect. That should get you back on line to come ask for help.
If you can surf you'll want to setup some wireless security. I gave you enough to do in this post. Post back your results and we'll go from there.
Again, some of the wording might be off on some of these steps but I'll get ya close enough that you'll see where and what to do.
