Re: dlink dwl 7100ap problem
If your unit has a reset button this is your first recourse otherwise you would be best to treat yourself to a new router as computer parts and accessories only ever have a limited life span. Then at least you know you will get a few years of trouble free use. I use a Buffalo myself but would steer clear of Netgear (one I had lasted only 4 months). Belkin are also good. D-link as so far as I have heard are so-so at best.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The default value of the Username is set to "admin" with no password entered. If there was a password on there that was forgotten, simply Reset the router to factory defaults. There is a small hole with a button that you can press and hold for about 30 seconds that will reset the router. Use the end of a paperclip to press the button.
If routing and remote access is enabled on the server, it should handle the bridging automatically between the two nics...
Otherwise, simply turn off the DHCP in the router, have the server and
all the clients connect to the LAN ports, and they will automatically
get their address from the server. In this scenario, you don't need to
worry about the WAN port on the router.
But you might want to think about using the WAN port on the router to
provide an added layer of security rather than exposing your server
directly to the internet. You can set up all the port forwarding you
need on the router.
To secure the router, first
you have to access the router through web browser (Internet Explorer)
by typing the IP address of your router in the address bar, which is
usually 192.168.1.50 (default) The default administrative user name and password (unless you've configured otherwise, the default username is admin and bno password). If you cannot access it wirelessly, try accessing through wired connection. Otherwise, you can simply resetthe router to factory default setting, press and hold the
reset button for few seconds (It is at the back of the router near the DC Power Jack). The LEDs will then blink and the routers factory settings wouls be restored.
note that after RESETTING THE ROUTER to defaults, ALL SETTINGS WILL BE
LOST AND YOU HAVE TO RECONFIGURE IT. Generally, after hard reset you
get the connectivity, however, you have to make the connection secure
etc. Please, refer the product guide/manual and make configurations as per the
details provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
I think I was having a similar problem with my DAP-1522 ... FW Version 1.10 being used as an access point. I recently discovered that I was not able to connect to the configuration pages using a web browser by typing in it's IP address (192.168.0.50). When I originally set this up device up on my network, it worked just fine, but at some point in time, it stopped working. My solution to this problem was to set the switch on the back of the 1522 from Auto to AP, then re-boot the DAP-1522 by removing power, waiting 10 seconds, then plugging power back in. Once the AP re-booted, I was then able to access the configuration login page by typing 192.168.0.50 into my browser. My DAP-1522 access point is connected via port 1 to my D-link router, a DGL-4100, via a DGS-2208, 8 port gigabit switch. Hope this helps!
The usual setup IP address for DLink wireless routers is
and the user login = admin and no password is required.
If you have not changed the password and the default SSID then it is recommended that you set a password and change the SSID so that it will help prevent someone hacking into your DLink wireles router and changing your setings to their advantage..
I have had similar problems with DWL-2100 and (much less often) with DWL-3200. I have no solution, but a workaround: changing the authentication mode. For example, if the units are using WPA-Personal, I change it (on both) to WPA2-Personal or WPA-Auto-Personal. It doesn't seem to matter which mode is used, it's just the fact of changing it that helps (eventually). You may have to go through the process more than once. Also, realize that although the web interface comes up 30 seconds or so after a reboot, it may take another 30-60 seconds before a link is established, so don't give up too soon while trying these changes.
We will try a hard-reset the D-Link Air DWL-700AP to the factory default settings, please dothe following: Locate the reset button on the back of the DWL-700AP Use a paper clip to press the reset button Hold for about 5 seconds and then release After the DWL-700AP reboots (this may take a few minutes) it will be reset to the factory default settings.
then do a fresh configuration, http://184.108.40.206/search?q=cache:Hm3Vs8XnH3QJ:wireless.cisbg.com/soft/Dlink/dwl700AP/Manual/dwl700ap_manual_102.pdf+D-Link+Air+DWL+700AP+802.11b+protection+code&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=1&gl=in
