Re: loses connectivity

Hi, a couple of ideas: 1. maybe out of range or too many obstruction, how far is the client from the AP or are there any objects in between. it's gotta be line of sight; 2. with 200mW power output and 5dBi external antenna, should be adequate, if not maybe slightly directional performance (no longer perfect omni). try rotating the device and more or less guesstimate max signal at a particular orientation (pointed towards the client). Netstumbler would be good enough for signal strength; 3. consider the optional integrated 9dBi patch antenna; 4. for the client having a hard time with the AP, manually enter the TCP/IP settings and not auto obtain. numbers should of course match AP settings except for the last digit(s) of the IP add; 5. try moving the client away from any RFI sources like cordless/wireless phones, microwave ovens and others; 6. at one time, signal strength to a client improved by moving the AP a couple of feet away from the original installation point. of course if your unit is mast mounted, then you have to move the mast as well or put up a new one. Hope this works for you. Good luck and pls post again how things turn up.

I have a HP ProCurve MSM 410 AP. It will accept clients and then in 20 minutes it starts dropping connections..and will not let them back on with a restart. I have poured over the specs for both AP and...

I'm having a very similar issue with 5 MSM410's (at 2 differant locations), purchased at the same time, from the same vendor.

With 2, when connected using PoE Injector, the AP gets hot (at the Data/Poe port), and only permits 3 devices to connect before the devices start losing the ability comminicate beyond the AP (i.e. I can logon to the AP with the Web Interface (WI), but cannot ping the DHCP server or even the Gateway device on the other side of th AP from the devices, but can ping both directions without issue from the AP's WI). HOWEVER; when connected using the PoE from a Cisco ASA-5505 (port 0/6 or 0/7) the devices work flawlessly.
- For this site, I replaced the Power Injector first, then replaced the AP. No change
- When connected to the PoE on the Cisco the unit does not run "Hot".

With 3 others at another location, they only allow 3 devices to connect and will disconnect any devices previously connected. These 3 are supplied PoE from Dell PowerConnect Gigabit Switches (also used to supply power to the VoIP and PoE Security Camera's), and also run Hot at the Data/PoE ports. We have not tried power injectors at this site.

I've tried to find any indication of how to adjust the PoE and Data Port settings to resolve this, but cannot find anything, and this appears to be a unique issue, as noone I have contacted has ever experianced it.

- Mike

We ave lost our connection on our one computer to

Its sounds like it could be a number of problems. One problem may be that your computer's IP Address may have become invalid (expired, or other reasons). One way to fix this is to go to command prompt on your computer, and use the commands "ipconfig /release", and then "ipconfig /renew". After that, use the ping command to test connectivity. To do this, type in ping, and then your router's address (i.e. ping If you get replies from your router's IP, then your connection is working. If you get a reply from an IP starting with 169, then your networks settings are probably incorrect. If your request times out 4 times, then you have other issues. In the case that your requests time out 4 times, try "ping". If this ping does not work, then you need to replace your NIC card.
If you still need help after performing these steps, or if you just have questions about the information in this solution, please feel free to contact me.

Configuration page doesn't load

1. can you ping the router? go star>run>cmd and type ping
if the ping times out or says it's unreachable, check your network connections (cables are fully seated and there leds are blinking properly)
2. try to type on the address bar and hit enter, did you change the ip address on the router before?? if you did and can't remember what ip address you gave to it you may need to reset your router.
3. try the same ip address in another browser (IE, chrome, firefox), Make sure your browser has Java, JavaScript, or ActiveX enabled. If you are using Internet Explorer, click Refresh to be sure the Java applet is loaded.
4. are you using the right the correct user name and password? enter 'admin' (lower case) and hit enter or the password you may have configured, if you can't remember what that was reset your router.

you router's manual can be downloaded from here

good luck

Sometimes i try to ping the wireless access point and i get the message 'Request time out',i receive this message even if im directly connected to the access point.what should i do

When you connect the computer directly to the access point, you might not be getting IP address on your computer.
You will need to assign a static IP address on your computer in the range of default IP address of the Access point.

Default gateway

When you ping the gateway with your computer it could not communicate with the gateway.
Assuming you are connecting via a network cable.
Either the network cable is broken or network card is faulty or it is configured incorrectly.
Make sure your TCP/IP address of your network card has the same TCP/IP address range as your gateway.

D-Link DWL-G700AP Access Point

You need to connect the access apoint directly to a pc with a CAT5 cable then set up a static ip on the pc which I assume you know how to do it, for the static ip put subnet is and gateway is then save the settings, then check first if there's a good connection between the access point and pc, go to the command prompt then type PING if you receive 4 replies go now open the if you receive 4 request time out reset the access point and and ping it again if still 4 request time out after you reset it replace that access point.
