Problems connecting to DGL-4500

I recently installed a DGL-4500 router and am getting some odd issues, both of my vista machines can connect with no problem (1 wired and 1 wireless) my sisters computer XP sp2 can also connect with no problem as well as my xbox but my mom and dads computers cannot connect unless we reset the router each time they restart their computer. it shows them connected but the internet just dosent go through till the reset. both of these machines are running XP sp2 and have never had issues connecting in the past. ive tried just about everything i can think of, assigning an ip in the tcp/ip settings and so forth.

any ideas?

To get into the D-Link DGL 4500 router homepage, simply open an internet browser window and type in the following address:

Make sure you have the latest firmware as this might help with your dropped connections. Also try to make a DHCP Reservation for each computer connected to your network (p. 32 in the User Manual), as that can also help prevent dropped connections.

Download the latest firmware ver. 1.23NA to your local computer. Connect your DGL-4500 router via a wired connection (ethernet) to your computer and install the firmware update following instructions in the user manual.

I have cable internet and how would i connect the DGL-4500 wireless router to cable???


Turn the cable-modem off.
Turn the router off.
Use an Ethernet cable to connect the network-port on the cable-modem to the 'WAN' or 'Internet' port on the router.
Use another Ethernet cable to connect the network-port on your computer to one of the 4 'LAN' ports on the router.
Turn the cable-modem on.
Wait for its lights to settle-down to a repeatable pattern.

If you don't see any devices connected in the DHCP client list on the router interface even when you are sure of the devices being connected, only a firmware update or a re-flashing of firmware can help. You can find the latest firmware available on the d-link support site. You can verify the model and version numbers and download the corresponding firmware. This is only fix.

Check the IP address of the computer.
If you aer getting the Ip address on the computer then try to ping the router.
You have changed the ISP. there is difference between the cable and DSL service provider. settings are different.
You will need to set up the router from the start.

How do i hook cables to download new firmware into my dgl-4500 from computer to router


  1. I assume you downloaded the newest firmware (version 1.21NA) from this site.
  2. Save or move it on your desktop so it's easier to find.
  3. Connect your router to your computer with an Ethernet cable.(If you're not sure what it looks like, see here.)
Do not upgrade the firmware over a wireless connection!

On the same page, look at the FAQ's. there is an entry called "How do I upgrade the firmware on my DGL-4100/DGL-4300/DGL-4500?" It is a description of the upgrade process itself and will walk you through the steps.

I'm just amazed that they miss a really important warning. Do not unplug your router or close the browser on your computer until this process is finished. This can render your router useless and you will have a nice, expensive doorstop.
When the upgrade process starts, go have a coffee, do your dishes, whatever, but: Leave the router and your computer alone! Wait until the router's reboot is completely finished.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Slow or intermittent wireless/then disconnected


thats not enough info. it could be a dead router, too much interface, incorrect settings. try the router at your friend's house. if it works then its not your router. download a software called network stumbler, install it, to run it in vista right click it and click run as administrator. find the channels your router and other routers in the neighborhood are using. if they are the same then its an interference issue and if not then your router has incorrect settings.

D-link DGL-4500 is not accessing my dsl modem


make sure the dsl modem is in bridge mode. you do this by connecting directly to the modem then accessing modem configuration page. after doing this connect the way everything was before. now go to router admin page, then setup tab at the top, then choose internet, manual setup. in the place where its says my internet connection is select PPPoE. then put in your dsl username, password and etc. save settings. this should fix the problem
