If the D-Link was new out of the box, it should not have the security set.
You need to do a reset on it, It will be reset to the factory specs.
Look on the back of the router. There you will see a small opening next to where the power plugs in. The reset button is recessed in that opening.
Take a paper clip and hold the reset button in for about 30 secs. The lights will go solid and then blink. Then take the power connector out wait 30 seconds and plug it back in.
You should be able to get on line afterward.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

I forgot to set up my password to my dlink wireless router how am i going to do?


I presume you mean the login and password to configure the router.
Connect a LAN cable from your computer to the LAN port on the wireless router.
Open a browser and enter the router's configuration URL.
The D-Link configuration URL is
http://192.168.0.1
and the default login = admin
the default password = blank (just press enter)

Laptop cannot aquire network address from wireless router


If you connect the computer to the router , it works.
That means the wired connection is OK.
Open the set up page of the router check the wireless settings of the router.
I think your network is secured and you are not typing the correct network key.
just open the router set up and check the wireless settings .
Make sure that the DHCP server on the router is enabled

My WBR-1310 doesn't do wireless to my laptop.


theres a couple of version of this router http://www.dlink.com/products/default.aspx?pid=WBR-1310&tab=3 I'm using the manual from here http://www.dlink.com/products/?tab=3&pid=WBR-1310&rev=WBR-1310
on a working PC download and install this program http://www.xirrus.com/library/wifitools.php this will detect all the wireless signals being broadcast - see if the router is actually broadcasting - if it is detected on your PC then it may be that 1) the firewall is blocking access or 2) the security code is entered wrong - -log into the router and remove the wireless security and see if you can now detect

How do I hook d link up to my comcast router so that I can use it with my laptop?


Well, you are trying to connect a router to a router, that can be difficult. Is there anyway you can exchange the Dlink router for a Wireless Access Point (AP)? If you can, you just connect the AP to the 4-port network side of the comcast router, configure the wifi settings (security, etc), and you're good to go.
If you can't exchange it, then your best bet is to connect the 4-port (or internal) side of the dlink router to the 4-port side of the comcast router. Then the dlink will be seen by the comcast router as another internal connection, and you can set the wifi settings of the dlink at that point. If you connect the dlink to the comcast router via the External port on the dlink, then you are creating two separate IP subnets, a needless complex setup.

Hi,
Here's a link to the DLink website were the instruction manual is located. You'll need to find your exact model number on the page I've provided, then you'll need to pick the exact model version (instructions are provided on the website) and then you can download the Product Manual from the link on the left side.

>Click Setup and Internet > Click on Manual Configure
>My Internet connection would be Static IP
>Type in your IP address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Primary and Alternate DNS

but if your Internet Service Provider did not provide you those informations

Hi Sir F,

You don't need to do a re-install of the DLink WiFi adaptor since I believe it is running as it should (as you posted). All that is needed is to configure it to exclusively select only your NetGear WiFi Router. This could be done in the DLInk Wizard (Start/All Programs/DLink.../) set the DLInk to connect only to the SSID of your NetGear. Though it may pick up your neighbors WiFi, the DLink will only acknowledge the presence of the other WiFi but connect only and always to the NetGear.

A couple of other things that may help improve your WiFi connection. Use static IP add in your PC to match that of the NetGear, disable wireless security (WEP or WPA) but rather enable MAC filter and input that of your PC's WiFi Networking Card.

Should you need a more detailed instructions, pls post back the model of your router and the make/model of your PC as well as your OS.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Is the wireless enabled for your router? Try typing 192.168.0.1 and use the default password to access your router settings. Check if wireless is enabled, SSID is broadcasted, and security is off or properly configured.
