How to connect to Streamyx with DLink 2640-T wireless router

I found in my website log, apparently somebody trying to find out how to connect to Streamyx broadband using the latest DLink 2640T. Since I own one, I decided to share my settings to enable you to connect to Streamyx.
1.First point your favorite browser to, enter your username and password (default: admin | admin)
2.Web configuration user interface will be displayed, click WAN
3.Change the VPI value from '8' to '0'
4.Enter your Streamyx username (xxxx@streamyx) and password below
5.Finally go to Tools->System. Click "Save and Reboot" there to save your changes.

Ho I need to wait for 5-6 minutes to make my laptop shutdown because I am using Microsoft Vista on my Laptop!!!. I googled about this and I found some information to avert this problem.Edit some information in the Regedit can increase the speed of shutdown in Windows Vista.Start Run (Windows Key +R) program and type regedit and hit enter.Navigate through HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control On the right pane Modify the WaitToKillServiceTimeout string by right clicking on the string. The value will be 20000, make it 5000 instead. This worked well for me.

VMware disables Autorun/Autoplay function in windows 2000/xp/vista

Source :

This normally happens as VMware diables autorun in the host PC to prevent any unexpected behaviour. To renable the autorun feature, run VMware as and administrator {since i am using vista) right click on the VMware icon and click run as Administrator, clik yes/allow when the window pops up. Now in the VMware window at the top click on EDIT, and select preferences. Another Menu Box should pop up, click on the tab that says DEVICES, you will see a tick beside "Disable Autorun on the Host", just untick it and click ok, then restart the pc. that should fix your problem, PLEASE NOTE, IF YOU DON'T RUN VMWARE WITH ADMINISTRATOR RIGHTS OR AS AN ADMINISTRATOR, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO CHANGE THE OPTION.

The free VMware Player hasn't such option but setting the registry dword-value

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer] "NoDriveTypeAutoRun"

to 91 (Hexadecimal) solves this, this means it should look like: "0x00000091 (145)" in the registry then.

Code for .reg-file:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
