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..

Apple Macbook Pro does not connect to wireless network


The antennas in the Macbook Pros have had an issue with reception due to the aluminum housing of the laptop but, should still receive decent reception just not as much as a plastic Macbook or plastic PC laptop. It could be possible that the antenna's cables have become disconnected from the Airport Extreme card inside your Macbook Pro, that the card itself is faulty or damaged or that the Antennas themselves have been damaged in some way. As always make sure you have the latest updates and have installed any driver updates from Apple regarding your Airport Extreme card. Here's an article that may help eliminate any wireless interference that may be affecting your signal strength. Apple - Wireless Interference hope this helps, if so don't forget to comment, vote, etc. Thank you.

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.

If you have "good batteries" installed in the mouse and keyboard and you still have the problem- the best way is to remove the devices via the System Preference panel in your MacBook and then re-install them again. It is important that you remove them first as the system may revert to the previous connection. Good luck!

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.
