Newest D Link 2310 Problem!!!!!


At&t was able to get the "home computer" back on line, but when they tried to connect the satelite computer.... it had lost all signal to the router. They were unable to do anymore, and D Link phone lines only give me a recording........ sigh...... ready to give up!!!!!!
If anyone has a solution to "coaxing" the satelite computer to recognize the router again, I'd stop pulling my hair out!!!!!

    The wireless signal will fail every few hours - I've also upgraded to the latest firmware and the problem still continues. D-Link GOLD series is Junk.

    i have to same problem with both my routers dlink 2310 and my netgear router. i only had this problem when i moved in to my new house. its driving my nuts. i dont want to keep resetting my router everyday. i dont have the time to dig deep into the problem because i dont have the time. i think the problem might be that i have DHCP on and that i put my computer to sleep every night. but i also lose my connection with my xbox360 and ps3. i dont know if the problem is with my ISP, i use to have comcast and never had this problem. when i switch my encryption to TKIP it work for about two weeks. Becuase AES would switch the cipher key everyday and therfore my computers would not be able to connect without the new key. anyway the problem came back now and i dont know what to do.

    JESUS CHRIST! I'm gonna throw this **** outside. My old *** linksys didn't even give me trouble. I have the exact same problem as the last person. I can connect to it wirelessly, but when i disconnect, leave home, come back, the wireless signal is gone and i have to restart the router. I e-mail D-Link a very long and detailed explanation of my problem, if they have no solution then i'm returning this junk and going Linksys or Belkin.

    I WAS ABLE TO RE-ESTABLISH CONNECTION TO MY SATELITE COMPUTER....NO THANKS TO THOSE JERKS AT D-LINK!!!! HOWEVER, I AM BACK TO THE SAME CONSISTANT PROBLEM. FOR NO REASON, THE ROUTER WILL LOOSE ITS CONNECTION, RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF AN IMPORTANT RESEARCH PROJECT ON LINE...... AND POOF! GONE. I HAVE TO SHUT DOWN, AND REBOOT BOTH COMPUTERS, AND THE ROUTER, AND THEN CAN RE-ESTABLISH THE CONNECTION TO THE INTERNET, AND START MY PROJECT ALL OVER AGAIN!

    SOMEHOW IT MAKES ME FEEL BETTER TO KNOW THERE ARE OTHERS OUT THERE SUFFEREING TOO!!!

    Did At&T attempt to get you up and running with the second PC ? If so what did they have you do? Also what speed are you getting is it 768,1.5,3.0, or 6.0?

The Real Problem with this router is the Atheros chip inside overheating. The remedy is to install a heat-sink on the chip. Also, these routers have a history of the ethernet pins crossing and jumping into the wrong slots, examine the ethernet pins very carefully and attempt to straiten them.
To test my theory, Get a beer cap and take the plastic seal out of it so that it is bare aluminium on the inside of the cap, next put a drop of heat sink grease on the outside of the cap, (if you are too cheap to get some or are in a hurry, use a drop of toothpaste) then stick it on the atheros chip inside and fill the beer cap with vegetable oil, (Use vegetable oil instead of water because if you spill it on the main board, it will not cause damage.. IF YOU MUST USE WATER, be sure to NOT SPILL it on the board.)
After you have tested it and it works, Consider getting a small cpu heatsink, Should work fine without a fan.
Thanks

    This is the correct analysis of the widespread DI-524, WBR-2310 and other D-LINK products with intermittent wireless. The Atheros chip is smoking hot in use and a heat sink solved the problem on both of my units. I have submitted amateur photos of my personal solution on another topic but the heatsink and holes in the case for airflow solve my issues.

As far as the wireless dropping periodically I'm pretty sure that downgrading the firmware to 1.0.3 will work. I had been running at this level for quite some time and for some reason I decided to upgrade to the latest version which started the problems for me. I am downgrading to this now and I expect better results. All of the firmware versions are available at http://www.dlink.com/products/support.asp?pid=470&sec=0. You pick the right hardware revision. PLEASE NOTE: Save off/remember your settings as when you change the firmware it resets all of them back to system defaults.

I don't really know about the connection to the satellite so this is really only regarding the drops which seem to be what others are experiencing as well.

After cable co. split cable and installed another modem, D-Link WBR 2310 router no longer works with its original modem. Tried resetting, unplugging, etc. Can't get wireless.


Use an Ethernet cable to connect your computer to one of the LAN ports.
Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD
Press Enter
Type IPCONFIG
Press Enter
Look for a line of output like:

Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 123.468.32.1

Start Internet Explorer
Type http://123.468.32.1
Press Enter
Login to your router
Click to run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard", to:
1. set an SSID
2. set an encryption-level, e.g., 'WPA' or 'WPA2'
3. set a password for your network
Click OK to restart your computer

Use your wireless device to connect to that SSID, using that password that you set.]

I have a d-link wbr-2310, we got the child a ipod touch for xmas i cannot connect to my wifi.


On the iPod touch, select "Settings"
On the second line, you should see "Wi-Fi", touch on the right side of this bar, this will bring you to the menu to choose a network. From there, choose the network you want, and type in the security code if need be.
.
As a note, if you go back to settings, the 1st line is "Airplane Mode", make sure this option is "OFF".

My Dell laptop does not connect easily to d-link WBR 2310 router


2 wireless laptops are connecting. that means the router must be working properly. Only 1 laptop is not connecting.
Try to change the wireless channel on the router.
For this you will need to open the set up page of the router.
Is there any computer connected to the router ? If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router and open the set up page. Under wireless settings try to change the wireless channel on the router and see if that works.

Wbr-2310 error 112


Check your physical connection first. From the modem, it should be connected to the router's Internet port, then your computer must be connected to port 1 on the back of the router. Then do a power cycle, no need to run the setup CD. If it doesn't work, you need to manually configure the router. You may need assistance from D-Link tech support. Call their toll free number

I have a D Link WBR 2310 router. I had it set up for wireless network on my home laptop. It was always configured for immediate access (no pwd required), secured with wpa. I try to connect with my work...


did you reset to factory defaults or just unplug the router?  If you hit the reset button, you'll have to go in and set everything back up.   Have you tried to connect via webbrowser connected to the router from your home computer?  go to 192.168.0.1 and see if you can connect to the router to see what's going on.

VPN Using XP Servers and D-Link WBR-2310


I had exactly the same problem. The solution is to set up pptp as a virtual server pointing to the lan ip of the server. Port forwarding only forwards the port but not the GRE protocol (pptp passthrough)

D-LINK WBR-2310 SET-UP


Sounds like you need to 'copy' the mac address of the computer it was orginally hooked to before and put it into the router. Some routers have an option to do this in the settings menu of the router with one click.

Wireless router and home phone


it is highly unlikely that your router would disable your phone. Although there is a possibility it may cause static on the line.
