Question about D-Link DGL-4500 Wireless Router

Open Question

My router (D-Link DGL-4500) is set up as an access point

Its blocking my laptop from my network. i need my laptop to be able to see the network now, I cant set up my slingbox otherwise. Awhile ago i set the router to be used as an access point, i believe it was on the router its self, and i cant figure out where to set it to allow me back on the network. The main computer on the network is running windows xp, and it may also be a setting there.

    ...sorry, should also have said that if you need to 'see' the network, a wired connection to the main router should enable this. Again, good luck.

    Hi...I don't know if you've solved this problem yet?

    The only thing I would offer is that (1) you need a wired connection to the router to change its settings, and (2) since converting a router to an AP requires you to disable DHCP, this needs to be re-enabled if you want to convert it back to a router.

    BUT - I'm not sure if this is what you need? If you want to set up some new equipment and need access to the router settings, it's best to make a direct, wired connection to your main router to do this. Hope this helps a little. Best of luck with the setup.

No need to reset the password, if you know how to login to the router you can check there the security that you needed to be able to connect wirelessly.

make sure the dsl modem is in bridge mode. you do this by connecting directly to the modem then accessing modem configuration page. after doing this connect the way everything was before. now go to router admin page, then setup tab at the top, then choose internet, manual setup. in the place where its says my internet connection is select PPPoE. then put in your dsl username, password and etc. save settings. this should fix the problem

If you don't see any devices connected in the DHCP client list on the router interface even when you are sure of the devices being connected, only a firmware update or a re-flashing of firmware can help. You can find the latest firmware available on the d-link support site. You can verify the model and version numbers and download the corresponding firmware. This is only fix.

You should be able torom your access your D-Link Router from your browser.

Connect your laptop or Desktop to the router with an RJ-45 cable (just your regular ethernet cable)
Make sure you can access the web by search whatever.

If you have interet connection working - you'll need to take a peek under the router, on the bottom of it and you should see an access IP address - this is usually 192.168.0.1 but your could be different.

Once you have the correct IP addres you'll need to type it into your opened browser as follows:
//192.168.1.1 or whatever it is and it should prompt you with a user name and password box:

by default your username: admin and password: "admin" or "password"

unless you have set a previouse password for it use the above information

If you did set a password for it previousely and have forgotten it you need to rest your router completely by: get a paper clip and straighten it out and at the back of the router there should be a reset button, very small, and with the paper clip push on this button for 1 minute. Go back and try to enter the Router through the browser.

Good Luck!!

Is there a limit to the number of login attempts that can be made or can hackers make continuous attempts until they get in?


There is no limit to the number of login attempts, as far as I know, but there are ways to block hackers outside of your network...

You can use MAC Filters (Media Access Control) to allow LAN (Local Area Network) computers by their MAC addresses access to the Network (p. 44 in the user manual).

You can also use the built-in Firewall Settings for protection from the outside world (p. 45 in the user manual).

There is also an Access Control Wizard (p. 40 in the user manual).

Make sure you have the latest firmware as this might help with your dropped connections. Also try to make a DHCP Reservation for each computer connected to your network (p. 32 in the User Manual), as that can also help prevent dropped connections.

Download the latest firmware ver. 1.23NA to your local computer. Connect your DGL-4500 router via a wired connection (ethernet) to your computer and install the firmware update following instructions in the user manual.

I have cable internet and how would i connect the DGL-4500 wireless router to cable???


Turn the cable-modem off.
Turn the router off.
Use an Ethernet cable to connect the network-port on the cable-modem to the 'WAN' or 'Internet' port on the router.
Use another Ethernet cable to connect the network-port on your computer to one of the 4 'LAN' ports on the router.
Turn the cable-modem on.
Wait for its lights to settle-down to a repeatable pattern.

Router password is the password to access the router settings.
SSID is the network name. When you try to connect to the wireless network on your laptop, you will see this network name.
If your network is secured network then it will ask you for the network key or the password. You need to enter the ' security key '.
