Configure d-link wbr 2310 and now wont connect


Hi mech_warrior,

Press the reset button of the d-link router for 30 seconds, unplug and plug the power cord.

MAC cloning is used for Cable ISP configuration but that should not affect the router's functionality (odd router behavior) ;-)

That should do it!

How do i connect to a wireless internet router


You need a cat 5 ethernet cable that goes from the uplink port to the router. The rest is wireless. Most routers offer cat 5 ports where you can plug a computer in. Dont use a telephone wire ... telephone wire is RJ 11 - you need a RJ-45 caat 5 cable. They look similar.

BTW, most wireless runs at about 10 - while wire runs at 100 or 1000.

You will need to run the wizard on your computer to detect ... and/or load the software that came with the router.

Moving desktop across room where there is no cable connection.


you can buy a cheap USB wifi adapter and connect the desktop wirelessly just like your laptop, this should do the trick.
or you can buy an access point to extend the range of the wireless network, you should not be moving the router itself this way.

My Toshiba SP6000 cannot enable the wireless network connection when the wireless pc-card is inserted. I intend to network my laptop to my computer for broaband purposes. Please help


Hi Alirahmani26,

From what I've gathered here, you're trying to use a wireless card on your laptop to connect to the Internet through your desktop computer. Are you using a wireless router somewhere in there? Or are you wanting to connect to the Internet FROM your laptop THROUGH your desktop computer? If the latter, are you planning to connect the laptop with a Cat-5 cable or with the wireless connection?

Connection drop-outs


Is your laptop wireless adapter a compatable brand. It doesn't necessarily mean the router is bad, you may even be getting RADIO interference from a cordlees or a cell phone in it's path. Do you have the capability to plug a cat-5 cable directly into your laptop from the router when you lose wireless? Check the wireless channels and see about changing the channel on your cordless phone too. May not work, just a hunch.

Good Luck
