Connecting DSL Moden Router to RJ45 line

October 29, 2012 at 00:57:35
Specs: N/A
I just got a DSL Modem router (DSL 2750U) which has DSL input for internet connectivity.

My internet service provider provides RJ45 Cable which needs LAN input socket on a router for internet connectivity.

any advice how I do I connect ?

The D-link DSL-2750U appears to be a modem/router/wifi combo. You can connect network devices with RJ-45 ports to the DSL-2750U's LAN ports (use the ISP-provided patch cable), and you can also connect wirelessly to the DSL-2750U's built-in wifi hotspot.

If you make sure your network devices are configured to receive their network settings automatically via DHCP, all you should have to do is connect them to the DSL-2750U wirelessly or with a network cable... they'll configure themselves for internet access.

I think the problem is how to connect the Internet connection and then use it as a router rather than how to connect clients. I don't think that router has a WAN RJ-45 port, does it? If not it might be better to get a plain router rather than a modem/router.

If it's a combination unit, you'll plug your phone line directly into the appropriate port. It may be marked "internet", "external", "phone line". While I've only seen a couple combo units (I had one for a while myself) they didn't have a network (RJ-45) plug for the internet....only a phone line (RJ-11) connector, as well as the 4 LAN ports (RJ-45)

page 5 clearly shows it connects by a rj11 [phone line] jack.

You need a phone line run to where you want to put this router.
