    Need more info. What model is the D-Link? What ports are the computers plugged into? What is the uplink port plugged into? How is your network configured?

    Most likely, you're plugging the broadband modem into one of the LAN ports, and not the WAN port of the router.

    How about showing us this for the one working computer on the router?

    Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

    Type the following command:


    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.
