    I just switched to DSL from cable internet and am having some trouble setting up my router with the new internet service.

    DSL modem-->Router-->Network with PC and PS3

    ISP is ATT
    DSL modem is a TP-Link 8616
    Router is a D-Link DIR-628

    I put my ATT username and password into the router but it never completes a connection to the internet. I was able to create a soft PPPoE gateway connection through my computer using my username and password, but I want my router to do this, not my PC. How do I get my router to connect directly to the Internet connection rather than having my PC connect? My setup would be fine as-is if I just had 1 computer but I also want to go online with my PS3, and it won't connect like my PC will, even after putting the username/password in.

    I can give more info as needed. Thanks.

    connect the pc by cable directly to the modem
    power cycle and post an ipconfig /all

    http://www.tp-link.com/Resources/document/TD-8616_V7.0_QIG_7106503797.pdf

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ipconfig /all
    If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post the results in a reply here.
    Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and paste here.

    We would like to see the results from an ipconfig /all - post back the results in a reply here.

    This should also work for windows 8
    Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box
    (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

    In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

    Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

    ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

    It will export the results into notepad and then automatically open the notepad and display on your screen.

    Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results into a reply here
    to do that:
    From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
    all the text will now be highlighted
    Next
    From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy

    Now go back to the forum - goto the reply and then right click in the reply box and paste the results.
    The results from the notepad should now appear in the forum reply.

    How to power cycle

    “power cycle” process to reboot or reset the modem/router
    • Switch off all the devices modem, router and computers also unplug their power cables.
    • Wait at least 1 to 5 minutes,
    • Plug the power cords back in, but don’t switch them on.
    • First turn on the modem and then wait for a few minutes for it to settle and all the lights to become stable.
    • Next switch on the router (if a separate device) and then wait for a few minutes for it to settle and all the lights to become stable.
    • Now turn on your computer, You should now be able to access the Internet.

    and of you set the router to get a IP automatically - what happens

    otherwise - what settings do you use on the PC to connect - dont post the username and password - but you will need other settings

    When I put the username and password into the router and save, it restarts. Then when I go to the status screen it says Network Status: Establishing (please wait...) but it never connects.

    On my PC, Windows created a soft network adapter named "broadband connection 2" that takes my username and password (the same one i put into the router) and it connects to the internet.

    OK so I noticed that my router firmware was from 2008 so I updated it to the latest version. Surprise, now everything works as it should! Problem solved. Thanks for trying to help me out, etaf.
