    D-Link/Network trouble

    I've spent most the evening at my nephews trying to get his internet back through the router, its ok when trying to get it through the modem.

    I've uninstalled the modem and tried installing the router but it says something about the network card not working correctly.

    after a few failed attempts I tried to set it up through their laptop but came across the same problem about the network card.

    all was working fine until the router was updated so his xbox Nat settings were set to open, but now the router just doesn't want to know.

    the router is a D-link G624T, i've tried doing a factory reset on the router but again it doesn't want to know

    done this by holding a pin against the reset button for some time, the light is supposed to go out, then when you release the button comes back on., but can't get the light to go out. so can't factory reset.

    the other strange thing is that the pc and laptop card are showing as the same type of card Broadcom 440x 10/100 Intergrated or something like that... the PC is a good 100 years older than the laptop, that is why I find it odd that they are the same card...

    i've tried uninstalling the network card to no avail and updating it also to no effect...

    a real noggen scratcher for me

    advice GREATFULLY received.

    Probably best asking a couple of questions first :

    1. The D-link G624T is an ADSL modem router, but you say the connection works with the modem, have you got another modem which is setup to use your DSL service?
    2. When you were installing the router, were you using the software based quick-install?
    3. How was the router updated, which settings were changed? Ideally to work with XBOX a certain range of ports should of been opened. Were any other settings changed?
    4. Which network card are you using? is it USB, PCMCIA?/ The Broadcom 440x 100/10 is a local area connection, usually the chip is built into many computer motherboards, which span from desktops to laptops.

    It would be good to physically connect to the router and check your settings, as just a simple change to the WAN settings (PPPOA/PPPOE username/password/connection type and/or static ip) could solve your problems.

    How to Physically Connect the D-Link

    1. Plug an Ethernet cable into the DSL modem. Plug the other end of the cable into the "WAN" port on the D-Link.
    2. Using an Ethernet cable, plug any wired computers into any of the 4 Ethernet ports on the D-Link.

    How to Access the D-Link Configuration Screen

    The D-Link is configured using a Web browser. After you have connected your computer to the D-Link router, follow these steps:

    1. Launch your Web browser. Enter "http://192.168.0.1" into the address bar and press the "Enter" or "Return" key.
    2. A logon pop-up screen will appear. Type "admin" for the username and leave the password field blank.
    3. Click "OK". A D-Link configuration screen will appear. All changes to the D-Link configuration are made here.

    1). The modem is a speedtouch usb modem, so when i say i can get connected to the internet through the modem I mean without the router linked up. The router was bought separately for networking purposes. don't know if that really answers your question.

    2). Easy question wahoo... Yes, from the D-link DVDr

    3). I believe that the only settings that were change were the forwarded ports

    4). The network card is PCMCIA (90% positive) but the card itself I don't know what it is... (SISandra, might help for that)
