That is kind of a required piece of hardware. A router cannot connect to the internet without a modem of some kind connected to it via the WAN port.

How about a picture (photo or drawn) of how everything is connected. Would go a long way to see how you have things hooked up.

Here is my antenna. I'm not sure of the model number, and that is my providers web site. I have residential wireless broadband. http://www.barbeck.com/downloads/mot...0_brochure.pdf

You can't get online because you don't have anything connected to the WAN ethernet port (the white one) on the router. The router might be wireless, but that is for sending and receiving signals to computers or other network enabled devices. It still requires a wired connection for a modem of some kind to the WAN port to be able to get online.

Sorry that was unplugged at the time because I was on the internet and it was connected to the laptop ethernet port. Usually the ethernet antenna cable is there.

according to the links you posted to 'barbeck' you don't (technically) have a modem--it's a Motorola 300 wireless bridge--hers is a link about setting up a wireless bridge....according to step 6--after configuring the bridge--you connect the 'router' and configure it.

and here is link to DIR-615 support pages (see the FAQs section)

Well them two links are not much help. I did find some info about the Dir 615 does not have a bridge mode. But with the earlier mention aftermarket firmware it could be made to work. But I cannot get the router to accept the new firmware.

these steps should work
1.configure bridge/modem
2. connect only AC power to router and push the reset button to set it to 'default'
3. on both computers set your network connection to 'automatically' obtain IP address and DNS address
4.connect router to 'bridge' and to power it up
5. connect computer to router and access the router via your browser using the instruction that came with the router--you should see a webpage that has login page--leave the password field blank
6. login then go to SETUP > INTERNET > use the wizard to setup (assuming this works--then you only need to access the router again to setup a password for your wireless so no one can piggyback on your wireless--and it will probably be a good thing to setup a primary password for the router)

" I did find some info about the Dir 615 does not have a bridge mode"

no no no ---you don't setup bridge mode in the router--YOUR internet connection IS a BRIDGE (Motorola 300)--the first link was from your ISP about how to configure it properly.

I think I understand that you are trying to update the firmware for win7 compatibility--so--first--plug the XP machine into the router and update the firmware re: these links

then--reconnect win7 machine.

you know this process should take about 15 minutes tops, except I'm sitting here is Seattle and trying to communicate via this forum--the steps that I've outlined should work perfectly--good luck to ya--am out for now.
