Welcome to FixYa! In regards to your problem there are possible options you could follow.
1. Check first if your computer is detecting the router. Go to your Network Connections and see if its detecting a connection with the D-Link router that you have.
2. I suggest go to this site that has a manual for setting up a D-Link DIR-300 Wireless Router.Check if you missed any of the process.
Steps: Go to Google.com then type "cant get a internet Problem with the D-Link DIR-300 Wireless Router" and then look for DIR 300 Wireless Router Manual. There you will find all that you need in setting up your router. Hope this helps! Thank you for using FixYa!
First you have to check on your laptop that your wi fi network drivers are installed correctly.
Also check it is enabled.
Also check wi fi switch on laptop is turn on.
Check its ip addreses and subnet amsk and gateway is proeprly.
I contacted Bigpond after my whole internet collapsed due to my amature abilities in fixing the internet. >_<"
yet they fixed my internet connection by disconnecting my current (DLINK DIR-300) router from the network. hmmmm... the technician also confirmed that my current broadband modem (2WIRE 2071-A) isnt capable of supplying a shared connection to more than one computer!! she also directed me towards a modem with an inbuilt wifi router that "supposedly" is the best option right now. (2701HGV-W) I'm a bit shaky and the stupid NETGEAR adaptor problem still exists - im willing to buy the new modem if its guaranteed to abolish this problem and give me a better internet wise outlook - please any suggestions will be appreiciated =)
First you have to make sure that you connected it correctly. the cable coming out of the modem should be connected to the single port (Internet port) at the right when facing the back of the router.
All computers that are wired through it should be able to access the internet. if one of your computers cannot access the internet you may want to check the IP address that you are getting. (go to a command prompt and type ipconfig).
If you are connecting a wireless computer check the wireless security setting which you can find at the configuration (setup) page of the router. to access the configuration page check the owner's manual.
Normally, all ruters are hubs as well. if you want to connect it as a hub only; try connecting only the ports minus the WAN port that goes to the DSL modem. In this case the router will behave just like a hub.
I am assuming that you can connect to your router's web based interface (192.168.0.1).
On a PC LAN wired to the router, open a browser;
Log-in username/admin and password/(blank);
Go to Tools > Misc and the option to select the WAN speed (bottom);
Lock the speed down on the WAN port of your router to 10Mbps (Some versions do not have this feature).
Hope this works for you.
If not pls post back with your modem brand/model. You may also want to log the IP settings (IP Add, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, DNS Servers) of the PC that is directly connected to the modem when you can access the Internet when not using the router.
Good luck and kind regards.
