Hello everyone,

Currently I am connected to the internet using the direct LAN cable connected to the LAN port, and connect to the internet by entering my username and password provided by the university.

I would like to set up a wireless network in the room because I need to move about freely and don't want to stick in front of my table all the time. I bought a wireless router (D-link DSL-2640R) and tried to set up using the device connected to the LAN port. But I still can't connect to the internet.

Does I need to use the 'STATIC IP' or 'BRIDGE MODE' to set up the internet as I don't need the DSL modem to connect the internet. Or is there anything else that I need to do or install in order to connect to the university gateway device?
