New modem help

Hello please help someone!!
I just bought a D-Link DSl-604+ and promptly set it up as instructed.
Wired through my network card by RJ45 (not wireless)
Got all the settings put in really easy and in the configuration menu and testing options it is connected to plusnet, however I cannot get any pages to load in my web browser, emails to download or send or messenger to login.
I did a quick search on the forum but couldn't find the direct answer.

Any help please?Huh

Do you just get DNS errors?

Have you changed IE connection settings to never dial a connection. Also have you removed any proxy settings on that page - select your default dialup connection, click settings and untick every option. Also do the same for lan settings if it is configured to use a proxy.

Finally, have you configued DHCP on the router and set windows to obtain it's IP address automatically? What IP address has your PC been allocated? (run a dos window - start -> run -> cmd (or command) and type ipconfig /all to see this).

Thanks Peter, fixed it now it appeared to be the NAT settings, I think.
I now have access via RJ45 and wireless, however I am limited to 11Mbps and I think I should be able to get 22Mbps. Again am I missing a simple setting that changes wireless availabiltiy.

Thanks again
