Question about D-Link (DI-784) Wireless Router

1 Answer

Acer Aspire One netbook

I just purchased an Aspire One netbook. I also own an Aspire 5100. I use Verizon FIOS for internet access. I have no problem connecting to the internet on my 5100, but the netbook will not connect. I get a message that says limited or no connectivity. When I click on the repair button in the Wireless Network Connection Status box I get a message that says Windows could not finish repairing the problem because the following action cannot be completed: Renewing your IP address. I would appreciate any help. Thank You

Please call dlink tech support at 877-453-5465. just an advise on how to handle the call when you reach dlink tech support (agent); do not agree to call back after you troubleshoot with them (they'll be giving you a case id reference# and be advising you to check your pc or call "who" and call them back to continue the troubleshooting). insist to the agent that he need to resolve the problem asap (by the way, agents are not allowed to drop the call or they'll be dead-history!). and if the agent still insisted you to call back, ask for a "senior level technician" to finish the job (escalate the problem).
fyi: dlink tech support handling time to resolve a call is 15 to 18 minutes only. if you reach that 15-18 minutes (max) time the agent will think of a way for you to call back (advising you to check with your pc manufacturer, check with your ISP, call microsoft to update your software, etc... non-sense!) they need to do this in order to reach their handling time (agents need to reach 21 to 25 billable calls, and billable calls are "solution provided", "resolved", and "dropped call"). ---- believe me, i was one of them and repented.

Speed on Verizon Fios


I had this problem or similar. Verizon (in New England area) upgraded my speed to 7MPS Download and 1MBS upload. It was slower than the old speed. I called in Verizon and after a lot of back and forth - well, to be fair, they were good - it turns out that the router on their site was old. They unplugged us from it and put us on a newer faster router and Voila! Worth a shot.

I suspect that Verizon is degrading service to forcr users to mig


Anything is possible but it would take a lot of work to jam wireless signals. As a communications company, Verizon, if caught would be in hot water with the FCC. I have an idea. Are you able to change channels on your wireless and try it. Also, is there anyway you could try a different wireless router? If FIOS is coming in, there may be maintenance changes in the infrastructure that effect your internet performance.

Nonexistant customer service by Actiontec


After my second call to Actiontec ended with the help desh hanging up on me, Actiontec did respond to an emailed plea for help and prompty provided a complex script which they labeled confidential to address this problem. The bottom line seems to be Verizon either installed hardware that is incompatable with an Exchange server or they did not configure the insallation correctly. In so many words, Actiontec feels it is a Verizon problem. I wish me luck in getting to the right place to deal with that, even though I am a Verizon stockholder.
