My beginner status means I don't know how many ways that this CAN be set up
I'll tell you what I have done so far.......
This PC is owned by my girlfriend, it has a fresh install of Ubuntu 8.04
The D-Link router modem is connected to the PC via an ethernet cable to the network card.
A second ethernet socket is on this PC, onboard network feature I think you would call it.
This router can apparently be connected via a USB cable instead but I have not tried that.
The router is connected to the phone wall socket via a regular phone cable and the ISP supplied inline filter.
In the Network settings window, connections tab, I have 3 items
1. checked box wired connection (eth1) address dhcp
2. checked box wired connection (eth0) address dhcp
3. unchecked box point to point connection, this interface is not connected
Under properties eth1 is set on automatic configuration (dhcp) and other boxes are greyed out.
DNS tab- DNS servers box indicates 10.1.1.1
I tried to open http://192.168.0.1
as you suggested but Firefox could not, timed out repeatedly.
I note the D-link instructions booklet says to open http://10.1.1.1
and when I do that a small box opens, I get asked for a username and password. D-link Instructions say to use default "admin" for both but that didn't work. I tried the username and password my girlfriend said applies to her ISP account but that won't work either.
Don't know what else to do at this point
