MacBook not connecting to DIR-655 Router

Hello. My macbook can't connect to my D-Link wireless router.When I click on the AirPort symbol ( the symbol on the top right hand corner with the little waves ) I type in my password, wait for it to load, but it says, " There was an error joining the AirPort network 'dlink'." I know I set it up correctly, because my Wii could connect to it. I don't know if it's a problem with my macbook or the router.

    I am not able to get my son's powerbook to connect to the router. It sees it, but then says there's an error connecting to it.

    I just got this router, and I think it's going to go back because of this problem. I have a couple PowerBook G4s that won't connect at all. I also support MacBook Pros, a Power Mac and a PowerBook G4 that all seem to work OK, but the 1 GHz PowerBook G4's are a no-go.

My solution was that I changed the wireless mode from "B,G and N" to just "B and G," and then it worked fine.

If you enabled the WEP security on your router, you may need to put a dollar sign first before key in the security when you attempting to connect your MAC computer to the wireless network of your router.

I could not get my old Powerbook G4 (running OS-X 10.3) to connect to my new D-Link DIR-628 router while a Lenovo Laptop (running XP) and an Intel based Macbook (OS-X 10.5) connected just fine. After I disabled the 802.11n mode my Powerbook G4 can now connect to the router just fine. I set the wireless mode to 802.11g + 802.11b and everything works again.

Hope this helps someone.

Is my D-Link router dying?


Router is not assigning Ip addressed by itself. Try setting it up as an access point. There are a few tutorials online. See if that helps. If you want to use this as a router then try resetting the router. Even see if there is a firmware upgrade for it.

Please rate if helpful.

Thanks

You will need to check the wireless settings of the router. If possible then upgrade the firmware of the router. try changing the wireless channel of the router. Is there any computer connected to the router? If not then connect the computer to the router and open the set up page of the router.

Cannot connect MacBook to DIR-615 router


Is your wireless network secured ?
If you are trying to connect to the secured wireless network, make sure that the network that you are typing is correct.
If you are not sure about the network key
then check the network key on the router.
You said that MAC is able to connect to the neighbor's wireless network.
Make sure that the Wireless MAC filter on your router is disabled.

I just moved to a new place and had my cable internet modem is hooked up. i can connect directly to the modem to get on the internet but cannot connect via my wireless router when i move the ethernet cord...


I assume that you have a new modem in your new location. If this is the case, you need to clone the MAC address in the router setup (see online manual) OR you can reset the router to factory default state.

Cannot connect my new Apple MacBook Pro to mt DIR 655. Are there specific drivers to install for the MacBook Pro?


No -there are no drivers to install. I would even suggest not to use any CD that came with the router (in your case the so-called "Quick Router Setup Wizard CD".
It is always better to configure the router by hand, otherwise you have to look forever if you have to troubleshoot.

If you connect your Mac to your DSL- or cable modem, can you access the internet?
If yes, then you have to configure your router. If not, then there is a problem with your internet connection in general and you have to contact your ISP.

Connect to your router (via cable) and check that the SSID is broadcasted and your wireless security is turned off, until you can connect wireless to your router. Look at the manual page 22 (if you don't have a manual, you can get it here.)
  • Enable Wireless: ON
  • SSID: whatever you like
  • 802.11 Mode: MIXED (unless your MAC is 802.11n capable - you can change that later)
  • Channel Width: AUTO
  • Visibility Status: VISIBLE
Then follow the Wireless Security Setup Wizard (ideally do it manually, but this works too). You find a description up from page 64 in your manual. For now, select no wireless security and complete the wizard. Don't forget to save your settings.

Now you should be able to connect to your routerwireless from your Mac.
After this is accomplished, go back to the wireless security setup and secure your network with WPA2 Authentication.

If you have any more questions or get stuck at one point, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Macbook pro only laptop in house that drops wireless connection


This sounds like an Intermittent Wireless connection problem. This is caused by cordless phones with 2.4GHz frequency. What you can do is change the Wireless Channel of your router to a different frequency/channel like channel 11, 1 or 9. Also you can try to relocate the base of your cordless phone away from the router or to a different room. In addition, you can try positioning the router to higher places like on top of cabinet or mount it on the wall..
