I have just bought D-Link 2500U modem, and need a step by step how to install it.
I am sort of newbie , I have never tried this before , so if you can please be as informative as possible.
I found in the internet that it's default web interface ip is 192.168.1.1, but when I type it in the browser search bar it fails.
Okay, it's a box...you have (in that box) a device (the modem) and a strand of wire (mostly yellow), here's what I'd do:
- hook the lead into one of the ports of the modem, there's only one way to do that
- hook the other end in a similar socket on the PC
- hook the power lead to the modem, plug it in
- observe ... lights ... on the modem, lights is good
- on the PC, open the browser (Firefox, Opera, whatever)
- instead of an internet address (http://www.blaablaa.com) you enter this : 192.168.1.1
- you should get the config page of the modem
- try to find a section to enter the password and login you pay your provider for, possibly on a monthly base
- there should be a "save" option, do save the login data
- on the PC, open a console enter:
My provider said that it's address is 10.0.0.138, when I enter it into the browser, it asks for username and password, the only one that is accepted is user/user.
Inside there is no password username option, only all sort of information.
Okay...let me see...is this a new install? Have you ever done any networking? In the console, enter this and observe
...you should see something similar like this:
PING 127.00.0.1 (127.0.0.1) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from 127.0.0.1: icmp_req=1 ttl=64 time=0.052 ms
64 bytes from 127.0.0.1: icmp_req=2 ttl=64 time=0.046 ms
64 bytes from 127.0.0.1: icmp_req=3 ttl=64 time=0.045 ms
64 bytes from 127.0.0.1: icmp_req=4 ttl=64 time=0.046 ms
64 bytes from 127.0.0.1: icmp_req=5 ttl=64 time=0.050 ms
if not, your networking is'nt working...
Edit : perhaps not relevant, what cable are you using? Maybe the cable is a straight cable and for this you'll need a crossed one. Are you using the cable provided with the modem?

I am just reading the user manual and it states that the IP address is 192.168.1.1, but I don't know why it does not connect??
It connected in win7 perfectly, without any need to default IP address, the provider lead me through step by step till it connected .
I am connecting also through cellular modem, and it was connecting with no problem ,till I started to try to configure the ADSL modem through YaST, now this modem does not connect either(it connects but with no internet),
do you know how can I find the tool to select country-provider-...??
this is way to complex. your modem is (an one end) just a network device (hence the IP address) and can be connected to as just any other netword device. so what this boils down to is: when there's networking, you can connect to the modem, if so, you should be able to get on to the config page of the modem, provide login details and select provider in the modem. I had a D-link too, the provider was in there. Unless you bought your modem somewhere else...
I doubt is D-link even has a quick setup, I never used/needed it anyway. On the left, there should be some yellow buttons, one of them should lead to a screen where login data can be netered. Tha's all I ever had to provide...
I just called my provider and the username and password of the IP address are admin with capital A...
but still didn't find their any place to insert my ISP username and password, should I be connected to the ADSL ? because I where not!
gave similar output.
now for some reason the cellular modem connects but there is no internet, my question was, where can I find the tool that allow me to choose provider according country for cellular modem??
I am so frustrated now , because I need to switch between windows and linux all the time !
I now tried to enter the IP to the modem, 10.0.0.138 with Admin/Admin, now I am connected to the ADSL, but i still don't find any place to enter the username ans password ..!!
Any help please!!
I also want to configure the cellular modem from scratch, but don't seem to remember where I can choose provider according to country as I did first time, that is because the modem connects but there is no internet!!
You misunderstand what I said, there are two problems, the cellular modem and the regular modem.
regarding the first, when I first configured it, I choose the country and then the provider, and then it recognized the APN and I needed to enter username and password of the APN, so my question is how can I redo this process for the cellular modem, since it connects but with no internet.
Regarding the regular modem, the username and password are Admin, when I enter them to the browser with 10.0.0.138, I found no option to insert the provider username and password.
Any help please??
I called my provider, they said that they don't support linux, but told me that what I need is not the ip address of the modem, instead I shall define a dialer...!
I have no Idea about how is that done!
