Question about D-Link 802.11g Wireless Router WBR-1310 (WBR1310)

6 Answers

Mac running OS X 10.4 and D-Link WBR1310 Slow Internet

I have a Mac Intel that is connected to a D0Link WBR1310 router. It runs very slow on the net. When I hook the computer directly to my cable modem it runs great, but when I go through the router everything starts fine but eventually goes to a crawl. My download bars freeze at about the 3/4 point and loading takes a long time. The techs at D-Link blame viruses (None present), Cable (runs fine without the router), I'm running with the original firmware but, when I download new firmware, it will not install. (Not sure if it's intended for a Mac.) And the D-Link techs have been very unresponsive. Can you help?

    Reset didn't work, I thought maybe new firmware would. I downloaded it to my desktop but when I tried to open the download, it activated my itunes and nothing happened.

    I followed the advice to download firmware, but it asked me to hit the APPLY button. There was no APPLY button, and when I pushed the SAVE SETTINGS, nothing happened.

It sounds like you or someone else either accidentally or on purpose set QOS settings on your Router that are redirecting a fair portion of your Bandwidth elsewhere.

If you have the manual for it, it would be helpful for you to have ready for learning to setup your security routines later. If not you CAN download it from dlinks website.

On the back of your router on the right hand side there is a tiny pinhole labled reset. With a paperclip (or other suitably small tool) push it into the reset hole count to 10, while still holding the reset in remove the power connector from the router, count to 30 release the reset switch and plug it back in.

Once it has fully come up again it is advisable to go into the routers Webpage and setup security settings and change the default password. Your user manual should be able to tell you what the default user name and password are.

You can reach the Routers page by using your preferred webbrowser Which I'm assuming is Safari and in the address bar type 192.168.0.1

type in user name user name is : admin by default
type in password which is blank by default so just hit enter.

Then you can change the User name and password to suit your needs. And I would strongly advise looking for a "How to" on setting security settings on the Router.

If this gets you back up to SPEED then we found the culprit. If not message us back here and well do our best to get you going

Good luck

What you can do is reset turn off the router and the computer, then turn both of them on at the same time. This will reset the computers IP address and what you can also try it holding down the button on the back of the router (pen sized button) for 30 seconds to reastablish a connection.

    A firmware update definetally improves things and sometimes the firmware will not work if the router is in use so the best way to update the firmware is to log into the router by going to your web browse, typing in 192.168.1.1, then the username + password should be on the bottom of the router or try using admin for the user and password for the password for the default username and password. Then there should be an update tab in the settings.

  • SAM ANDERSON Nov 15, 2008

    Once again have a check over the virus using proper antivirus.

    Uninstall the current settings for the D link router completely and once again reinstall with cds or dvds provided with D link router . This seems to be some software bugs so give a try to this .

Why am I having trouble with facebook not fully loading on my pc


Could be your browser and/or Mac OS version. The G4s and even G5 Power PC Macs could only run operating systems up to 10.5.8. Minimum OS for running the latest versions of browsers, such as Safari and Firefox is 10.6. under the Intel chipset. Because the old browsers are slow, sites like Facebook and Google do not always support them.
OS 10.5.8 is more compatible than, let's say OS 10.4.9. Check your OS by going to About This Mac under the apple logo on the left side of the screen. It will tell you what your OS is. Your choices: Upgrade your OS to 10.5.8 or take a giant leap to an Intel Mac and run OS 10.6.8 or later. Eventually your old G4 will not be able to connect to anything because of the browser issues.

Solution on a slow Internet connections Problem  The major  causes for a slow...


Solution on a slow Internet connections Problem 
The major  causes for a slow Internet connections. A poor-performing connection can be caused by broadband router configuration issues, wireless interference, or any of several other technical issues with your home network. Follow these steps to diagnose slow Internet connections.
 1. Broadband Router Settings
As the centerpiece of a network, a broadband router can be responsible for slow Internet connections if configured improperly. For example, the MTU setting of your router will lead to performance issues if set too high or too low. Ensure your router's settings are all consistent with the manufacturer's and your Internet Service Provider (ISP) recommendations. Carefully record any changes you make to your router's configuration so that you can undo them later if necessary.
 2. Wireless Signal Interference
Wi-Fi and other types of wireless connections may perform poorly due to signal interference, which requires computers to continually resend messages to overcome signal issues. Household appliances and even your neighbors' wireless networks can interfere with your computers. To avoid slow Internet connections due to signal interference, reposition your router for better performance and change your Wi-Fi channel number.
 3. Internet Worms
An Internet worm is a malicious software program that spreads through computer networks. If any of your computers are infected by an Internet worm, they may begin spontaneously generating network traffic without your knowledge, causing your Internet connection to appear slow. Run antivirus software regularly to diagnose and remove these worms from your computers.
 4. Running Background Applications
Some software applications you install on a computer run in the background, quietly consuming network resources. Unlike worms, these are programs designed to do useful work. Peer to peer (P2P) programs in particular can heavily utilize your network and cause connections to appear slow. It's easy to forget these applications are running. Always check computers for any programs running in the background when troubleshooting a slow network.
 5. Faulty Network Equipment
When routers, modems or cables fail, they typically won't support connections. Certain technical glitches in network equipment, however, adversely affect performance even though connections are maintained. To troubleshoot potentially faulty equipment, temporarily re-arrange and re-configure your gear while experimenting with different configurations. Try bypassing the router, swapping cables and changing network adapters to isolate the slow performance to a specific component of the system.
 6. Service Provider Issues
Internet speed ultimately depends on the service provider. Your ISP may change their network's configuration, or suffer technical difficulties, that inadvertently cause your Internet connection to run slow. ISPs may also intentionally install filters or controls on the network that can lower your performance. Don't hesitate to contact your service provider if you suspect they are responsible for a slow Internet connection.

New router no download speed


I would recommend trying to shut down the nortons or any other firewalls and trying a speedtest,maybe at speedtest.net, then put the firewalls back up one at a time and see if one of them is slowing you down. this is usually the case

Connection is slow


the internet connection it's slow?
try to go to www.speedtest.net
run a test if it's a lot lower than the speed you're paying for make sure you dont have a splitter or filter between the modem and the jack.
if you dont replace the phonecable
powercycle to the modem.
if stills doesnt help connect the modem straight to the pc without the router.
if the speed its a lot faster its going to be a problem with the router, if the problem persist contacn you internet service provider.

Cable connectivity


hi pat seems your router is not configure yet for internet connection, for cable connection you must log into the setup page of the router and clone the mac address of your computer.

to do that you can call 1-877-453-5465
to have someone walk you trough the steps.


flashing lights simply means activity on your network, and you get activity when you have internet connection.

hope that helps pat.

This sounds like a spyware/virus problem. Try running the computer in safe mode(With networking) and see if it's any faster. You should also run your Anti-spyware,AV apps to check for problems.
