Note: Please configure the DSA-3100 with the computer that was last connected directly to the modem. Also, you can only use the Ethernet port on your modem. If you were using the USB connection before using the DSA-3100, then you must turn off your modem, disconnect the USB cable and connect an Ethernet cable to the WAN port on the DSA-3100, and then turn the modem back on. In some cases, you may need to call your ISP to change connection types (USB to Ethernet).

Step 1: Connect the Ethernet cable from your modem into the WAN port on the back of the D-Link DSA-3100.

Step 2: Open a web browser and enter the IP address of the DSA-3100 in the address bar (default is 192.168.0.40). Be sure to include https:// followed by the IP address. Press Enter.

Step 3: The default username is admin (all lower case) and the default password is admin (all lower case). Click OK.

Step 4: Click the Home tab and then click WAN on the left.

Step 5: Select your connection type using the radio buttons.
Static IP Address – If your ISP issued you a static IP address, choose this option and enter the IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway.

Dynamic IP Address – If you connect to the Internet without having to authenticate with a username and password, then choose this option.

dlink-dsa3100b

PPPoE Client – If you connect to your DSL connection using a PPPoE connection, then choose this option. Be sure to enter your username and password. Contact your ISP if you are unsure of what to enter. Choose Enabled using the radio buttons next to Dial on demand. Enter a value next to Maximum Idle Time if you want your connection to terminate after x minutes of inactivity.

Please make sure you know your username and password. Also, you will need to disable or uninstall the PPPoE software (i.e. WinPoet, Macpoet, Enternet 300) on your computers. PPPoE is built-in to your D-Link router and is not needed on the computer.

NOTE: About 90% of our calls and emails regarding PPPoE are solved by recycling power to the modem and the gateway(see step 7 below).

Also, once you have confirmed that your configuration is correct it could take five minutes or longer to connect.

Step 1: Connect your DSL modem to the WAN port on the D-Link gateway. Use the same cable that was used to connect your computer to the modem. The WAN light on the gateway should illuminate, verifying a good physical link.

Step 2: Connect the same computer that was originally connected to the modem to an open LAN port on the gateway. The corresponding port light will illuminate verifying that you have a good physical connection.

Step 3: Release and Renew the IP address for your computer. The address you renew should be in the 192.168.0.100 to 192.168.0.199 range.

Use the directions below to Release and Renew your IP address.

For Windows 2000 and XP:

Go to Start>Run and enter cmd. Click OK.

cmdfor2000withpointer

At the DOS prompt enter, ipconfig/release and then hit the Enter key to release your IP address. Then enter, ipconfig/renew and hit Enter to renew an address from the gateway.

Win2000ipconfigreleaserenew

The IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway information will be returned with this command. Notice in this example that the IP address is 192.168.0.104 and that the default gateway is 192.168.0.1. This information verifies the network adapter is properly configured and the computer is communicating with the gateway.

Step 4: Open your browser and type 192.168.0.1 in the Address window, then hit the Enter key. You do not need to type http://, only the IP address of the gateway. This will connect you to the web configuration utility that lets you manage the D-Link gateway. You are not on the Internet at this point. Type admin for the System Password, then click the Login button to login.

Step 5: Select the Setup menu option from the bottom of the screen. Next to WAN Type, click Change. Select PPP Over Ethernet. Click Save.

Step 6: Next, enter your PPPoE information.

PPPoE Account: Enter your user name.

Earthlink users – Enter ELN/username@earthlink.net
Mindspring users – Enter username@mindspring.com
SBC Global users – Enter username@sbcglobal.net
SW Bell and others – Enter username

PPPoE Password
Enter your password. Remember it is case-sensitive.

PPPoE Service Name: Keep blank.

Maximum Idle Time: Set to 999 seconds and check Auto-reconnect.

Assigned IP address: This is for PPPoE users with a static IP address.

Click Save. Click the Reboot button, then click OK when prompted to “Reboot right now?”. This will take you back to the Device Information page. Keep this browser page open.

Step 7: Power down the D-Link gateway. Either turn it off from the power switch, or unplug the AC power cord from the gateway. With the gateway turned off, recycle the power on the DSL modem. Again, turn it off if it has a switch or just unplug it from the wall outlet. Wait 2-3 minutes and then power up the modem only. Wait until all of the lights on the modem have stabilized. After you are sure that the modem has stabilized, power up the gateway.

Step 8: Allow 30 seconds for the gateway to power up. Click refresh on your browser and it may ask to enter your password again. From the device information page, click Connect. If an IP address appears, click Log Out and you should be able to connect to the internet.

NOTE: It may take a few minutes to make a connection to your ISP. Please be patient. If you have configured your gateway according to this FAQ, your configuration is correct.

    PPPoE stands for Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet. It is a non-standard method of connecting to your ISP to gain an IP address. It relies upon a software client that is provided by the ISP. An IP address is required to gain a connection to the Internet.It is used mainly with DSL services where individual users connect to the DSL modem over Ethernet and in plain Metro Ethernet networks. It was developed by UUNET, Redback Networks and RouterWare and is available as an informational RFC 2516.

    Ethernet networks are packet-based and have no concept of a connection or circuit and also lack basic security features to protect against IP and MAC conflicts and rogue DHCP servers. By using PPPoE, users can virtually “dial” from one machine to another over an Ethernet network, establish a point to point connection between them and then securely transport data packets over the connection. It is mainly used by telephone companies, since PPPoE is easily integrated with the current dial-up AAA systems and fits perfectly into the current ATM backbones. The protocol also permits very easy unbundling of DSLAMs where required by regulators, since the user would simply use a different login into PPP, then the ATM circuit would be routed to the user’s ISP. Also pre-paid traffic bucket business models can be created with PPPoE more easily than with DHCP or multiplexing multiple users with different speed tiers or QoS through 1 DSL modem or by creating a different login for each static IP purchased by customers.

    Make sure you disable or uninstall any PPPoE software such as WinPoet, Broadjump, or Enternet 300 from your computer or you will not be able to connect to the Internet. Do not disable until you´ve downloaded the firmware in Step 1. Please make sure that your modem is not also a router. If it is or you do not know, please contact your ISP and change the modem to Bridge mode.

    Step 1: Log into the web-based configuration by typing in the IP address of the router (default:192.168.0.1) in your web browser. Select Admin as the username and type in your password. Leave blank if you have not created or changed your password.

    Note: The address 192.168.0.1 is NOT on the Internet. The web-based configuration is built-in to the router.

    If the router is already online, you will be taken to the STATUS page after logging in. If this is the case, the router is connected and you do not need to continue with this FAQ.

    Step 2: Click the Setup tab and then click Internet on the left side.
