cannot connect the adsl modem with network card

  vaeri 09:23 03 Nov 2005

I have Devolo's Microlink ADSL Fun Lan modem, which I am trying to connect to my computer via earthnet card. After connecting to my computer a I get a message that "you might not be able to access the internet or some other network resources.This porblem occoured because network didnot assign any network address to the computer"

I have uninstalled the Nortor firwall too but it didnot help. I tried the old USB adsl modem and it works without problem with usb port.

Normally, a router allocates an IP address by DHCP to any computers which are connected to it. Check in the router's settings that DHCP is enabled. If your particular router doesn't support DHCP (which would be unusual), you would have to allocate an IP address in the same range as the router's manually. For example, if the router's IP address is then give the network adapter these settings:

IP address

Subnet mask

Default Gateway (the "router's IP Address)

DNS Server (the "router's IP Address)

I do not have a router attached to my computer. I am having only one computer and wanted to attach the modem thru the earthnet card.

In that case, the modem is not set up properly and the PC is failing to get the IP address allocated by your ADSL ISP. I cannot, unfortunately, give you specific settings because I use "cable", not ADSL.
