Problems with router and Cavalier DSL

by Dougie085 / January 11, 2008 11:21 AM PST

Ok I got Cavalier DSL about 2 months ago. I've had problems getting a router to work properly with it the entire time. I have 2 D Link routers one is a DGL-4300 the other is a WBR-2310. At first I thought it was a problem with my router so I exchanged the WBR-2310 and still had the issue so then I bought the DGL-4300 and its still an issue. So basically I set up everything and I connect my DSL modem to the WAN port and connect all my computers to the wireless connection yada yada. When I renew the IP address I can make one connection to the internet weather it be a messenger or a webpage. After that only that connection will work I can browse that webpage as much as I want but I can not go to another web page. I called Cavalier about it and they said it was a problem with my router and to call the router company. It works flawlessly if I have the modem connected straight to the computer but through wireless or wired ports on the router from any computer in my house it does what I described previously.

Actually it was a DNS problem. Aparently my ISP is giving out 2 DNS servers a primary and secondary and the one they give to my router as primary is dead. So I had to go in and do manual DNS and use the secondary as the primary and now it works perfectly. The firmware was actually up to date when I got it.

Cavalier C2 DSL Bundle

I am currently using dial-up and a Dell Desktop Dimension L800r Windows ME. I am getting a roommate but the deal-breaker is I must have WiFi. I have Cavalier unlimited local for $24.95 ($47 after taxes, fees etc) but now they are offering C2 DSL Bundle for $50 including unlimited long-distance. The Cav-tel sales rep was clueless if my current desktop could handle C2 DSL.

My question can it? If yes, how do I get WiFi? or better yet how do I setup this DSL and WiFi? Most grateful for all replies.
