    Next in the browsers address field (top left) type into the address field http://speedtouch.lan or the IP address 192.168.0.1

    This should connect you into the routers set up configuration pages, but any changes you make here should be saved before you exit the router itself, some routers auto-save the changes (config) cannot remember which way the speedtouch does it.

    Hmm thanks for the speedy reply essbebe.. but as i said when i set the lan card tcp/ip properties to "Obtain an IP address automatically" and "obtain DNS Server address automatically" and after sometime when i typed ipconfig in command prompt this is what i got

    autoconfiguration ipv4 address :169.254.142.34
    subnet mask :255.255.255.0
    default gateway :

    yeah no default gateway.. according to the guide it must automatically become 192.168.1.254.. is there something wrong with the router..?? i tried reseting it and after that also this is what i get..

    If unit is new ID is Administrator and
    Password ( no entry ) Blank. ( hurried study of Manual )
    enter 192.168.1.1 or `198.168.0.1 in TCP/IP properties page. then try in IE

    Ip address 192.168.1.10
    subnet 255.255.255.0
    Default : 192.168.1.1
    DNS : 208.67.220.220 208.67.222.222
    Apply save

    With power on press the RESET button, for about
    30 or 40 seconds.
    Observe any change in the LED lights.
    Then try /enter default gateway.192.168.1.254.
    Try LAN mode first.
    When Initially setting a modem ,
    it is advisable to enter the IP
    address for computer and modem . in TCP/IP
    properties page.

    Or try this.
    Use the Dare Global modem.
    Confirm you get connected to Internet.
    Then connect the RJ45 to LAN1 port speed touch router. Another Rj45 from LAN2 to computer.

    What error message you get ?

    @nimesh, For all your queries, please read the many guides posted in the Broadband How to section.

    1. As superprash2003 said above, first thing to do is to RESET the modem.
    2. After reseting the modem (to factory settings), connect the (Speedtouch) modem to the PC via LAN cable.
    3. Do not connect anything to the modem as yet.
    4. Set TCP/IP and DNS settings to automatic (you have already done that).
    5. Use ipconfig command (Start --> Run --> cmd --> ipconfig/all).
    6. You should see TCP/IP address of your PC and default gateway (IP address of the Speedtouch modem).
    7. Default IP address of the modem usually is 192.168.1.1 but not always. Sometimes it could be 192.168.0.1.
    8. Open browser, type http://<default gateway> in the address and now you should be able to see the modem's configuration page.
    9. If at step [5], you are not getting IP address, then it is possible the modem is faulty.
