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.

Enjoy

Imre

NEED CD INSTALLATION


You don't need an installation CD to setup the wireless but you do need the ADSL settings from your Internet provider to configure the ADSL modem.
Connect a LAN cable from the D-Link to your laptop/computer's LAN port, open the browser on your laptop/computer and enter the D-Link's configuration URL..
http://192.168.0.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = blank (just press Enter) You can now change the default admin password.
You can now configure the wireless settings. (WPA or WPA2 encryption to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access). Now configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings. To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security .

I lost my cd for the installation of the dlink model dir300. where to go to in the internet. hope you can help so i can use the router. thx


Are you trying to set up router ?
You can set up your router manually, without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

Wireless Router showing as connected, but cannot access Internet.


You have _THREE_ separate network connections to check:

1. your router, through your ADSL modem, to your ISP;

2. your computer, through an Ethernet cable, to your router;

3. your computer, through its wireless adapter, to the wireless adapter in your router.

So:

1. Connect the Ethernet cable from your laptop directly to your ADSL modem, bypassing the router.
Turn the router off.
Restart the modem.
Restart the computer.
Click Start
Click Run
Enter CMD and press ENTER
Enter IPCONFIG and press ENTER
You should get output like:
Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:
* IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 123.456.789.249
* Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 123.456.789.1
* Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Enter PING 123.456.789.1 and press ENTER
If PING does not respond, then telephone your ISP, and get them to trouble-shoot your connection.

2. Turn off the ADSL modem.
Connect the Ethernet cable from your laptop to one of the LAN ports on the router.
Turn the router on.
Restart your computer.
Click Start
Click Run
Enter CMD and press ENTER
Enter IPCONFIG and press ENTER
You should get output like:
Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:
* IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.100
* Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.1
* Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Enter PING 192.168.0.1 and press ENTER
If PING does not respond, then your router is not working.
If PING does respond, connect another Ethernet cable from the WAN port on the router to the ADSL modem.
Turn the modem on, and wait until the flashing-lights on the modem, and on the router, settle-down to a steady pattern.
Type PING WWW.GOOGLE.COM and press ENTER.
If PING responds, then everything is fine.

3. If you fix #1 and #2, above, then your wireless adapter should work.

It is depend on which type of connection cable your internet service provider.
You don't need modem if in your router ADSL port and your ISP gives you ADSL but if on wi fi router there not dsl port and your ISP gives you dsl cable then you need modem.

Let me know if you need more assistanse.
Thanks.

Wanting wireless hookup


1)Prepare your modem. Unplug the modem's power cord and place the wireless router unit next to the modem. If the router has antennas, make sure they are raised to their full upright position.
2)Reassign your networking cable. Unplug the cable currently connected from your computer to your modem and plug it into the port located in the wireless router. This port is usually colored blue.
3)Connect the router and the modem. Use the networking cable that came with your wireless router to connect the modem and router unit. The router port is typically colored in green.
4)Start up your modem. Plug in the modem's power cord and wait 1-2 minutes while it configures its settings and prepares to connect to the Internet.5
5)Start up the wireless router. Plug the wireless router's power cord into an outlet and wait 1-2 minutes to get it started. The router is ready when the 'wired computers' and 'modem' icons light up. These logos or icons vary by make and model of your router so consult the owner's manual if needed.6
6)Insert your installation CD. Use the wizard or assistant to check the configurations of your computer settings and launch your wirelessnetwork clip_image001.gif
Things You’ll Need:
  • Wireless Router unit
  • Networking cable (comes with router unit)
  • Installation CD
  • Modem
  • Modem power cord

Unable to install after 81 %


If the setup CD is unable to setup your modem/router (it is also called a "gateway") you can do the router configuration via the Web User Interface of the router. you will need ADSL settings such as:
a. Encapsulation mode. (typically PPPoA or PPPoE)
b. Multiplexing: (it can be LLC or VC)
c. Virtual Circuit Range.
d. Username & Password (ADSL UN/PW)

note: All of these ADSL settings should be provided/given to you by your ISP/ADSL provider. You can call your ISP for this settings.

just notify me if you will need further assistance doing this, but first make sure you have all the settings for ADSL.

You have to connect to the router with ethernet to get onto the configuration page. what i think what you have to do is to get a lan card and install it.
