Question about D-Link Computers & Internet
Wireless g router installation cd - my hard drive can not read it
have adsl modem- run broadband
tried putting the supplied cables in as information supplied- then i was unable to connect to internet
do i have to have the cd downloaded to run wireless
what am i supposed to do that i have not actioned
the result i want is to be able to use my lap top within the bounds of our home.
Forget abut the CD, it's good for nothing, it's only benefit is that you can find the manual on it, but you can downlad that online as well.
Here is the link.
Just follow the instructions how to get to the admin menu and try the wizard, it's te easiest way to make it run for an average user and it won't take more than five minutes.
As I can see it's menu is the same as my DIR-655's so I tell you quick as well. Connect the modem's ethernet cable to the router's WAN port, computers can go in to any of the four ports, only the modem matters, don't put elsewhere.
Open a web browser, enter 192.168.0.1 as an address, itt will ask for password, select admin and just leave the password empty, or if it's nogood than try admin as password, it'll let you in.
Go to setup and "Internet connection setup wizard"
Some advice for things in there:
For the internet connection select:
"DHCP Connection (Dynamic IP Address) Choosethis if your Internet connection automatically provides you with an IPAddress. Most Cable Modems use this type of connection."
Than Clone your MAC address and give some hostname.
When this wizard is done your internet should be working, now it's time to do the wireless security.
Go to setup and than select wireless setting.
Select manual wireless settings.
In there just do the following:
Check enable wireless allways
Give some name
Select the best mode what your laptop can do, should be at least g
Enable auto channel scan
Transmission rate to automatic
Channel width to auto
Visibility status to visible
Security mode is WPA-personal
WPA mode: auto wpa/wpa2 (if there's no wpa2 than wpa will do it)
Cipher type: TKIP and AES (if the devices are new AES only is better, but this way it's maximum compatibility)
Group key interval: set it to 1200
Pre-shared key: This is going to be the password for your wireless network, give something at least 8 characters long and it should contain letters and numbers, if there are capital letters that's even better, but please don't give a simple word like "elephant", because it will be cracked in no time if some badguy tries to hack in to your wireless.
When finished go to the top of the screen and push save settings.
With this wireless is done. now just go to tools/system and push "reboot the device" in a few secounds the router is good to go and you can use the password wich you set to connect laptops to the wireless network.
