HD Media Router 2000
Before You Begin
• You can only use the Ethernet port on your modem. If you were using the
USB connection before using the router, then you must turn off your modem,
disconnect the USB cable and connect an Ethernet cable to the Internet port
on the router, then turn the modem back on. In some cases, you may need to
call your ISP to change connection types (USB to Ethernet).
• If you have DSL and are connecting via PPPoE, make sure you disable or uninstall
any PPPoE software such as WinPoet, Broadjump, or Enternet 300 from your
computer or you will not be able to connect to the Internet.
Thank you for purchasing the DIR-827 HD Media Router 2000. Follow the easy
steps in this guide to properly set up your router. Please verify that all the package

computer, monitor, and speakers. Try to position the router so that the signal passes
through drywall or open doorways. Materials and objects such as glass, steel, metal,
walls with insulation, water (fish tanks), mirrors, file cabinets, brick, and concrete will
degrade your wireless signal.
