Question about D-Link RangeBooster G WBR-2310 Wireless Router (WBR2310)
After about a day of uptime, the wireless connection drops, and wireless devices report that the connection has "limited or no connectivity". All wired connections continue to work fine.
My router details:
Hardware version A1, firmware version 1.05
Here are my network settings:
DHCP server is enabled, range: 100 to 254
My desktop and my PS3 are my only wired devices and both have assigned IP addresses, the latter is necessary for NAT Type 2 for online play.
My advanced network settings:
UPnP enabled: CHECKED
WAN Ping respond enabled: CHECKED
WAN Port speed: 10/100Mbps Auto
Enable gaming mode: UNCHECKED
Enable multicast streams: UNCHECKED
Here are my wireless settings:
Enable Wireless : CHECKED
Wireless Channel : 11
Enable Auto Channel Scan : NOT CHECKED
Super G Mode : Super G without Turbo
Enable Extended Range Mode : NOT CHECKED
802.11g Only Mode : NOT CHECKED
Enable Hidden Wireless : NOT CHECKED (Also called the SSID Broadcast)
Security is set to WEP (for my Nintendo DS to use), but could be changed to WPA.
My advanced wireless settings:
TX Rates : Auto
Transmit Power: 100%
Beacon interval : 100 (msec, range:20~1000, default:100)
RTS Threshold : 2346 (range: 256~2346, default:2346)
Fragmentation : 2346 (range: 1500~2346, default:2346, even number only)
DTIM interval : 1 (range: 1~255, default:1)
Preamble Type : Short Preamble
CTS Mode : Auto
WMM Function: Disable
Most used wireless devices are my Wii and my laptop,both only stays connected for about a day.
Usually, I can tell that the wireless is dropped because the second light from the left, the "Wireless Transmission" light, stops blinking and stays constant on. Other times it's just off. In either case the wireless connection is dropped.
To restart the wireless, I just power cycle the router, but after a day or a bit more it drops again. This has been going for the past month or so, and I got this router up and running around February or March of 2008.
I can't seem to find anyone with a similar problem through Google, so hopefully someone can help.
I had the same problem (see Jan 09) but I found the solution:
I had trouble with the router resetting from time to time, that was fixed by upgrading to firmware 1.05. But I still had the wireless problem.
For me, disabling 'UPnP' (advanced->advanced network) and disabling turbo G mode (setup->wireless setting) did the trick.
Work great since then, both my laptop and my media center stays connected, going on one month now.
Hope it can helps other.

I found that if I go to router admin, and select manual setup. go to wireless and change the channel to 11, then check the auto channel scan, turn off range boost, the router stays up. I tried turning range boost back on and the router stopped transmitting again after a day. I've been up 3 days now. hooray!

If you are having a problem and have upgraded to firmware 1.05 on your WBR2310 Wireless D-link router then you need to revert to firmware version 1.03. Not sure what was screwed up in the firmware but that is what has made mine stable again without the painstaking reboots.

I loaded the latest firmware release 2.03, and haven't been knocked off since.

Jaypaull is correct; going back to 1.04 fixed all my issues.

If you are using at&t call them to separate your phone line to your internet modem, chances are ther is a signal dropping problem if you are using your phone or somebody calls you, i have many clients who have similar prob like you and was able to resolve this by installing a separate line. you may not notice this but you may have a problem also on your wired connection, pls consider this suggestion, it may not apply to your case but nevertheless, i was able to solve some prob in the past

Here was my solution: I returned my 2310, and upgraded to the N- DIR 615. Everything works fine now. Haven't had a problem for 2 weeks now.
