The range expander helps to extend the range of wireless network... Anyhow the range expander has to be placed withing the range of your Apple "wireless" router (Make sure your apple router is wireless router, if it is a wired router, then there is no use of range expander...! U need to buy an Access Point instead)... your range expander must be connected to the computer(using an ethernet cable) from which you are trying to configure... Site survey searches for the available wireless networks in range... It should show your existing wireless network... You need to select your appropriate network and you need to configure the Range expander wireless settings according to the Apple router's wireless settings... exactly the same SSID(Network name), Security type and encryption technique, password PSK (security key) has to be selected on your range expander as in the APPLE wireless router... Thats it... You are done... Your wireless network range would have extended now....
Try to configure your new router and you have to reconfigure the Range extender to tally with the new router. The IP Address that the range extender should have should depend on the DHCP server of your router that provides the IP Address.
Here is a link to the manual for your DWL-G710. D-Link manual on page 13 it lists the url entry should be "http://192.168.0.30" This is a HTTP link not a HTTPS. Also the address you typed in might be a typo. The IP address should be 192.168.0.30 not 192.168.0.30.
Don't know what you mean by this comment. Both the router and the range extender must be setup to operate on the same FIXED channel, as well as the same SSID and encryption key. Extended Range is a totally separate option which is capable of taking advantage of specific features of specific chips in routers and range extenders. I would advise against using it.
Your extender may not be able to talk to the router. Make sure you have set default gateway in extender to IP of the router. Turn off encryption first. Check the router if extender shows up in active client list or active mac address list.
when using the range extender you have to make sure you set the SSID, channel & wireless key in the range extender the exact same as the router also it has to be in the same IP range so if the router IP address is 192.168.0.1 the range extender IP address has to change from 192.168.1.240 to 192.168.0.240. once that is done restart the range extender and disconnect the ethernet cable & it the 2 lights should light up blue.
