Install D-Link Wireless Router:

Step 1: Preparation for Setup Assuming you just purchased the router open the package and remove the Wireless Router A/C Adapter and the Ethernet Cable. You can leave the CD inside the packaging you won't be needing that.

Now before you start unhooking everything take just a second to identify what you have and where you want to place the router. Your computer should either be connected directly to a Cable/DSL Modem OR a switch which is plugged into the Modem.

If your computer is plugged directly into the modem move to step 2 if not keep reading. If your switch is 5 ports or less you can remove it from the equation and just set it aside because the DIR-628 has 4 slots for hardwiring computers into the network.

If you need more than those 4 slots just connect the router to the switch.

Step 2: Connecting the D LINK Router Computers without switches "“ Unplug the Ethernet cable going from the modem to the computer.

Use the short Ethernet cable provided with the router to connect the router to the modem. Use the cable going from your computer (the one you just unplugged) and insert that into either of the 1-4 switch ports on the wireless router.

Finally give the modem power with the A/C adapter. Computers with switches of 5 ports or less "“ Completely remove old switch and plug everything into the wireless router.

Make note that the Ethernet cable coming directly from the cable/dsl modem must be pluged into the Ethernet slot on the router and not one of the switch ports. Computers with pre-existing wireless routers "“ match port for port.
