Question about D-Link RangeBooster G WBR-2310 Wireless Router (WBR2310)
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 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.

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
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.
