It’s very simple to setting adsl modem with the wrt54gh.
It’s because I need to access internet when I’m in my friend’s house. But he only have 1 internet connection using telkom speedy adsl modem tp link td-8817.
So I brought my wireless router (linksys wrt54GH) and setup there.
I’ll post later how to setup an adsl modem dlink with this wireless router.
These are the steps :
a. the structure will be like this :
adsl cable — adsl modem — wireless router (internet port) — pc
b. I assume the IP of the adsl modem is 192.168.1.1
c. By default , the IP of the router is 192.168.1.1 .
So first unplug the utp cable from pc to adsl modem , and connect it from pc to router (not the internet port).
d. open http://192.168.1.1
e. By default , user password for the router is : <blank> / admin.
f. Make the IP of the wireless router to different segment, by changing the router IP in basic setup.
In this case, I use 192.168.0.1
g. Why different segment ? Because the adsl modem itself has the dhcp service. And in 1 segment , there can not be 2 DHCP server running , it can cause conflict.
h. Then in the internet connection type , choose ‘Automatic configuration – DHCP’ .
f. Save settings. will need couple time to restart the router.
g. After that , connect the adsl modem with router . put the utp in the internet port of the router , and connect it to adsl modem.
h. done . No settings changed in the adsl modem needed.
j. restart the modem and pc if needed.
