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
Dave

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 .

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

Dlink wireless wbr1310 connection problem


Try this,

Shut down everything starting with your computer, then the router, then the modem.
Wait 30 seconds. Restart everything in this order:
Modem first (wait for all the lights to come on) then start your router (again wait till everything lights up and settles down) finally start up you computer.
Check to see if you can connect to the routers control panel which is usually 192.168.2.1.

In the control panel there should be a place to enter your computers MAC address, usually under MAC Address Filtering. To find the Mac Address of your computer, go to Start/Run/ when the window opens type CMD and hit enter.
A Dos window should open, type in the following. ipconfig -all
It should then display your Mac Address which you will want to write down so that you have it ready to type into the Mac Address filter .

After entering all the info. Restart everything just as I instructed in the beginning and you should be good to go.

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.
