D-Link router settings for connecting to a TIVO - wired

I wanted to upgrade my router from DIR-628 to DIR-632 in order to have more LAN connections. I was unable to get my TIVO boxes to connect (wired) - most likely a setting. I tried every setting available and gave up and tried to use my old router but it was "firmware upgraded" and I couldn't get it to work either. :( I need either the setting that will work with TIVO or a suggestion of a router that I won't have so much trouble connecting to TIVO with (wired).

It is all about managing the IP's. The router and TiVo should be set to DHCP. This will allow auto IP addressing. It could also be set to static, but this requires more managing on your part.

SOURCE: lost connection while upgrading firmware. Lost

You have to wait for the upgrade to finish. The router should automatically reboot and the time is depending on the firmware being applied.

SOURCE: My laptop has vista and wont connect wireless to

When you configure the D-Link router's wireless settings eg. Infrastructure mode, SSID, encryption etc. then the wireless adapter in the laptop needs to be configured with the D-Link's wireless settings so these devices can communicate with each other.
For details on securing and configuring your wireless network as well as configuring the wireless adapter in the laptop, please click in this link and follow my instructions :-

Press and hold the RESET button at the back of the router with the power ON until the LEDs flash at the time the release the RESET button. (firmware version was 3.00, and upgraded to 3.05) Connect a LAN cable from the D-Link to your laptop/computer's LAN port, open the browser on your laptop/computer and enter the D-Link's configuration URL..
The default login = admin
The default PW = blank (just press Enter) You can now change the default admin password.
You can now configure the wireless settings. Now configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings. To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

You don't have to do any special settings in your router, only settings required in the game for lan connection. But wireless connection is much slower then a wired connection.

Is my D-Link router dying?

Router is not assigning Ip addressed by itself. Try setting it up as an access point. There are a few tutorials online. See if that helps. If you want to use this as a router then try resetting the router. Even see if there is a firmware upgrade for it.

Please rate if helpful.

Notebook does not connect to LAN or wireless

The dlinks have a tendency to reset to factory settings when you do a firmware upgrade. Connect to the router using a wired connection or using another computer, confirm the settings are what you want, not the defaults. NEVER use the default wireless name (in this case: dlink), always change it to something nobody around you is using!

D-link DIR-635 router

Hi, I am assuming that you can connect to your router's web based interface ( On a PC LAN wired to the router, open a browser; Type ""; Log-in username/admin and password/(blank); Go to Tools > Misc and the option to select the WAN speed (bottom); Lock the speed down on the WAN port of your router to 10Mbps (Some versions do not have this feature). Hope this works for you. If not pls post back with your modem brand/model. You may also want to log the IP settings (IP Add, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, DNS Servers) of the PC that is directly connected to the modem when you can access the Internet when not using the router. Good luck and kind regards.
