Hello, I've had my D-Link router for about 5 years now. The model is WBR-1310. The connection worked fine up until today. I took off the connectivity between the router and my PC about 6 months ago,...


If the default password on the D-Link has been changed then-
To reset the D-Link back to the default settings -
Press and hold the RESET button at the back of the router with the power ON untilthe LEDs flash at the time the release the RESET button.
Connect a LAN cable from the D-Link to your laptop/computer's LAN port, openthe 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 password.
You can now configure the wireless settings. Now configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop withthe router's wireless settings.

Gateway purchased new 3/2010 has been connecting flawlessly to wireless internet until a few weeks ago. Solution had been to click on Open Network and Sharing Center, click on Troubleshoot problems, click...


Are you connecting to your own wireless router? If yes, have you changed anything in its configuration, or inadvertently reset it? If you're connecting to someone else's router (neighbor, etc.) it could be that they have locked you out. Does the wireless network show as secured? This sounds more like a security issue than hardware or driver.

Toshiba wireless sees desktop but desktop cannot see laptop. using belkin wireless


this is not likely a problem with your router, here's a couple of tips (this typically works in xp...hate vista and haven't got ahold of 7 yet)

open command prompt, find your ip info (ipconfig /all) try pinging both computers' ip address (ping 192.168.x.x), then ping the router...if you're using local ip addresses it should be 192.168.0.1 or similar...its likely that one ping the other but not vice versa

MAKE SURE the first three numbers are the same, i had a problem when i missed a 192.168.1.1 vs a 192.168.0.1

If you have not created a home network, i'd recommend it...you don't have to make a network disc like it tells you to but make sure they're setup for the same network (i.e. XPHOME, JOHN'S NETWORK)

if they both still are not communicating after a few minutes, try to connect a hard line between them, set one up as the router and dns...your ip config should look similar to this:
DESKTOP LAPTOP
IP 192.168.0.2 192.168.0.3
SUBNET 255.255.255.0 255.255.255.0
GATEWAY 192.168.0.2 192.168.0.2

DNS 192.168.0.2 192.168.0.2
you wont be able to have internet access but I do this to check network integrity, try pinging again, it should work both ways now, set up the network again and then change your gateway and dns back to your router.

I hope this helps, sorry if thats confusing

Wireless network adapter problem


Check to make sure you don't have a manual switch on your laptop, I have a Lenovo T60p the switch is in the front so some times I pick it up and I kind of turn the switch half on and half off. Same result no internet until I turn it all the way to the on position and reboot. As far as the turn on and off sounds like it could be a battery issue. Try running your laptop without the battery in it and use just the power cord to see if you get the same result.

If you think it's a virus try booting up in safe mode with networking and see if you can connect using the wireless and also try wired to your wireless router.

Goodluck

Network adapter


Hi There!

Hope you are doing well.

As is understand you can not connect to the internet. Here is what you can try. As i can see from what you have written. Your network adapter is fine.

1. I see you are using a wireless router.
If it is configured in DHCP mode ---> Then set your laptop or computer IP configuration in DHCP mode.
If it is configured in NAT Mode ---> Then give a static IP configuration to your computer. depending on your local range e.g IP:192.168.0.30 Subnet:255.255.255.0 Default gateway:192.168.0.1 and also set you Primary and secondary DNS settings.

You could try any of the above setting and after saving the new configuration restart the computer. and reboot(turn off the power supply and turn it back on after 30 sec) the wireless router also.

2. Try Changing your wireless router , install a new one and try your old configuration.

Regards,

Olafsson.
