Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX thank you for giving me the opportunity to help you with your networking question.

 

Can you tell me the brand and model number of your wireless router please?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
It is a D-Link DSL-2640R Wireless ADSL Router
Network Technician: Kevin, LAN/WAN Specialist replied 8 years ago

Thank you...

 

As far as setting up the router, is it currently working, just not the wireless part? If so, I can help with the final settings on the router and laptop...

Have gone onto local area connection this morning, and now it no longer has network cable unplugged but now I am stuck with what to do next.
Network Technician: Kevin, LAN/WAN Specialist replied 8 years ago

Okay - I still don't think I have enough information to work with...

 

Are you using a modem from talk talk also? If so, what is the brand and model number?

 

In your last post, you mentioned local area connection - I still don't know if the D-Link router is working or not, so I can't offer any answers to help yet.

 

Can you tell me in detail exactly what does and doesn't work with the network, router, modem and computer?

 

When we are finished, what exactly are you hoping to have done with the network? I can help you get it going, I just need the network details to be able to do it.
