I got four computers to connect to the internet and i bought a D-Link DSL-G604T wireless router to connect three computers wirelessly and one with wires.
I have no experience with cable internet, i thought it would be similar to when i was with telecom but it seems i am wrong.
I tried to connect my d-link router to the surfboard but it did not come with the right cable (cant remember the name of it), I need some info on what adaptor to buy and what to do after i've got them joined.
I know my way around the d-links router setup i have worked with a DSL-504G for years with no problems.
Can you go step by step as I will print out this and use it as a guide while i'm setting up the connections.

THANKS.

604T is an ADSL router and can NOT act as a router for a cable modem as its WAN interface is designed for an ADSL connection.

See http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?ForumId=44&TopicId=18975&page_no=3 re: Linksys router with DD-WRT firmware. Dlink routers can have problems on the cable network due to ARP traffic and the 604T is of no use whatsoever.
