I just switched my Rogers Cable internet to Bell sympatico High Speed(DSL). But now I am having trouble using my router.

Everything was fine with Rogers in terms of thr router, since cable is "always on" But what do I do with bell. I ve made the exact same connections. The RJ45 slot in the back of the modem plugs into the RJ45 slot into the back of the router. My network card cable plugs into 1 of the ports in the router. This worked for Rogers, but its not working with sympatico.

With DSL you have to connect to the internet. Is it something to do with that?

What do I do? Right now, I can use the net if I hook up my modem directly to me network card on the comp, but the other comps in my house cant use the net.

I have the speedstream 5200 modem and the SMC 7004ABR router. I think I have to change some settings but I dont know what.

Any help will be MUCH appreciated.

Did you setup your router for the new service. Using your IE and the IP address of your router. Insert the information for your new ISP such as the user name and IP addresses for gateway and dns servers. You should have this info from your ISP.
Most DSL serivces use one of three options such as Static IP
PPOE or Aign IP automatically etc.
