    Hi all.

    I have currently some problems with getting my internet working with a Dlink 655 router.

    When i put the internet cable from the wall and into the router it doesn't connect so i can use the internet on my RMBP. I can connect to the router, but can't go into any websites.

    If I try to logon another persons wifi in the building, I can easily use the internet despite is it the same internet company. It just showed me the startpage where i could type in my account and password, and then i worked.

    This startpage where I'm asked for informations doesn't come, and I can' reach the world wide web.

    Can someone please give me a hint what to do?

    I tried many times to set the router up via the routers ip address, but it still hasn't changed. Need help please!

    This isn't really a MacBook question.

    Do you have a modem? You need to plug the coaxial cable that you would get cable TV out of into your modem, and then connect your modem to your router using an Ethernet cable.

    If you don't have a modem then you need to call your Internet Service Provider, and they will come to set up your modem and the rest of your Internet.

    It sounds like your building is pre-wired for internet, provided by your landlord? Correct?

    If so, why use the router?

    Try this to fix it, plug into your router and type in the router's IP address (usually unless you changed it). Log in to the router, find the DHCP server setting and turn it off (every router model has it in a different place and you don't say what you have). Once that's done, restart the router and plug the cable from the wall into one of the 4 ports NOT labeled WAN or Internet. Doing this turns the router into a switch, you MAY be able to get your own wireless from it.

    Unless you're trying to get wireless it'd be MUCH simpler to spend $20 and get a cheap switch that requires no configuration.
