Question about D-Link DIR-625 (790069292637) Wireless Router

Macbook pro only laptop in house that drops wireless connection

Hey there.. I have a relatively new (3 mths) macbook pro, and seem to
be having wireless connectivity issues with my Dlink router, the DIR-625.
The Macbook connects beautifully to all other wireless networks, every other computer in the house connects fine with the router, and if I use the ethernet cable, the connection is lightning quick.

I've reset the router, both by the button and by accessing it online, and it still drops out. It will connect, but only for about ten seconds before it drops. Occassionally I can close and then re-open airport, but that only fixes it for a moment. Any advice?

Thanks,
Carla "carla@educulture.org"

    hi kakee,
    thanks much for your quick reply! as it turns out, i got a great hint from the mac discussion board that fixed the problem and that i will share in case anyone else stumbles upon this conversation!!
    i went in to the router online, changed two numbers, and it seems to be working perfectly!!! it took me awhile to find the page, but after that it was a snap. i've pasted the exact instructions below.
    also, as it turns out, there does seem to be an issue with the latest edition of leopard and the d-link DIR 625, but it's fixable with this solution. again, thanks, and have a great sunday, carla

    Go into the settings for the router. Choose the "Advanced" tab at the
    top and then the "Advanced Wireless" at the left. Change the RTS
    Threshold to 2306 and the Fragmentation Threshold to 2306. Go to the
    "Setup" tab and then choose "Wireless Settings" at the left. Change
    back to "Mixed 802.11n, 802.11g, and 802.11b". Then choose "Save
    Settings". The router will reboot.

    After performing this my Macbook connected again. This is with a D-Link Dir625 router.

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..

Why is Safari not showing content of Seagate Wireless when MacBook Pro shows that it is wirelessly connected?


The Seagate drive doesn't seem to have a Web interface, so Safari can't connect to it. It looks like you need to load the Seagate Media app on your MacBook.

Ok this might be a bit tricky but it sounds like there is another wireless signal that may be interfering with yours.

Do you have an older cordless phone in the house? If so try and move the cordless base farther away from the wireless router. Even if they are on different floors in your house, if they are located near each other the cordless can interfere with the wireless signal.

The other possibility is that there is signal that is coming from the outside of your location and is causing the interference.

I know that when I had an XP Pro machine (Laptop) it would drop the wireless signal every couple of days or so. I traced my problem to my neighbors cordless phone. he had an old one and it was near the side of my house that my router was on and it was causing me problems so I move my router and the problem went away.

hope this helps

1.Log into router. Using either 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.1.1 in a browser window that is ( internet Explorer or Firefox)
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off) ( router status window)
3.Note router name you are connecting to.
4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses.
5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address. This set up in the "security tab" in the router. using 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 to access through a browser.
6.Note router name you are connecting to.
7. Move the laptop/desktop/MAC about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet.
This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.
8. check for firmware update at the manufacturers site for your model router
9. cell phones, cordless phones, digital TV's, can affect the data signal from a router. Also distance from the router can be a factor. If your router is in a basement place the router to a upper floor and center it in the room.

Hey ! it seems that there is a problem with the Firmware of the router.
The wireless connection is dropping.
You can try to upgrade the firmware.
Download the firmware from the support web site of the router manufacturer. and upgrade the firmware.

Most hotspots are using b/g protocol for the widest compatibility with other hardware. Your macbook pro may not be able to connect tot he Belkin router if it's only broadcasting the N protocol. First verify which protocol the Belkin router is using. If it's broadcasting N, try changing it to use b/g and see if you can connect. I seem to recall that the earlier macbooks needed an update to be N compatible.

PC laptop will connect to the internet MacBook Pro Won't


Check your router's IP address from the Compaq machine. Get a command prompt and type ipconfig .all
Then wright down the IP settings.
Check the IP settings of the Macbook Pro. Adjust settings. You can give a Static IP also. If needed. But you have to set the default gateway -Enter previouse IP settings for those.
Check ur Wi-Fi settings also.

My laptop suddenly cannot connect to the router.


It comes down to a few things with routers and wireless connections:
1. If you have been dropping the signal over the past few weeks try doing a test on the wireless network connection via the diagnostic tool within the specific wireless connection.
2. You may have gotten a bad update to the wireless card. Try uninstalling it and then reinstalling it.
3. Try deleting the wireless connection for your router and then make 'a new' wireless connection.

Macbook pro network connection


Verizon, the ones who sent me the router, helped me fix the problem. The router/modem software has to be updated because the old software can't work with the new version of leopard. The technical support guy did all of the updating via a screen share, so your best bet is to call the company who sent you the router and get their help.

Router seems to drop connection frequently


What a static ip is, is the ip address that the router automatically assigns to other equipment. (computers, xbox, ect.) Find D-links customer support line for help.
