Problem on connecting the internet

I use D-Link DI-704P Router on my network. I connected it to my hub to share the internet connection to my client and i use it as my dhcp server. The connection work fine but my problem is from time to time the internet connection drops. I need to release the ip address then renew it before the connection will work again. I don't know if the problem is with the router or my hub. Any solution is very much appreciated.

Re: Problem on connecting the internet

Do all the clients lose their connection? My first suspect would be the ISP, then the modem.

Re: Problem on connecting the internet

Why are you using a hub? With a router, you can connect direct to the client. Eliminate the hub and see if that helps. Be sure to follow all the manufacturer's instructions for setup.

D-Link DI-704P as wireless

Yes, you have to. The router model mentioned is not a wireless router, not unless you have other network device there that transmits wireless connection such as a wireless access point.

Remote Desktop Connection on DI-704P

did you open TCP port 3389 on the router, and assign it to your computer? Remote desktop requires that port.

Add di-704p to an existing network

What you want to do should be quite easy:

1. Just connect one of the LAN ports of the DI-704P to a LAN port of your WRT54G. Try using a standard network cable. If the port status lights does not turn on on both sides when you connect the cable, use a "crossover" cable. Important: leave the DI-704P WAN port empty.

2. Disable the DHCP server on your DI-704P, your WRT54G will be the DHCP server.

3. Assign a static IP address to you DI-704P, different from your WRT54G. Example, if your WRT54G has, you may assign to your DI-704P. Make sure that the IP address you assign is outside the DHCP range configured in your WRT54G and that the subnet mask is identical on both.
You will then be able to use your print server from any wired and wireless computer and the remaining LAN ports both on the WRT54G and DI-704P.

I have had many D-Link routers fail ova the years and they all seem to start off just as ya describe , then go toes up... after a bit. Of course B4 getting another unit, one must first re-install all drivers, check all cords, cables etc. just to rule out anything else. Then get a nice new modern one :)

DI-704P unit power problem?

Unplugging the router resets it, I don't realy think its a power problem. The power pack contains a transformer that steps down (reduces) the power from 115V down to the 12V (or so, I don't really recall any more) the router uses. The byproduct is heat which can range from warm to uncomfortable to the touch. It?s not uncommon to have to reset your router and/or cable modem on some basis. At one time I had a DI-704 and had to reset it on a weekly basis to reestablish my Internet connection. At the time I thought it was my router but later it turned out to be a problem with my access provider supplied modem. How often are you having to power down the router? Who provides your access?

Sympatico & DLink DI-704P

It usually is simple, and hopefully the answer is as well. If you haven?t already done so unplug the modem and the router. Wait for a few seconds and then plug the modem in followed by the router. Reboot your PC and try the Internet again. If it still doesn?t work then I would try doing a hard reset of your router and reconfigure using the setup process outlined by the manufacturer. If that still doesn?t work let us know and we?ll continue ?.
