How do I install the D-Link X-treme N router for Mac OS X

The cd is incompatible with Macs. I can plug the router in, but what else do I have to do. The instructions say to read the directions for Macs and Linux, but they are not very straightforward. Can you tell me what I need to do to use this router?

Before you Begin
Installation
This section will walk you through the installation process. Placement of the router is very important. Do not place the router in an enclosed area such as a closet, cabinet, or in the attic or garage.
Please configure the router with the computer that was last connected directly to your modem. Also, you can only use the Ethernet port on your modem. If you were using the USB connection before using the router, then you must turn off your modem, disconnect the USB cable and connect an Ethernet cable to the Internet port on the router, and then turn the modem back on. In some cases, you may need to call your ISP to change connection types (USB to Ethernet).
If you have DSL and are connecting via PPPoE, make sure you disable or uninstall any PPPoE software such as WinPoet, Broadjump, or Enternet 300 from your computer or you will not be able to connect to the Internet.

You should not need to install anything. just reset your router with the little button right next to where you plug the power adapter. This should reset the device to simple manufacture default setup with no WEB security then go to your mac and turn your mac plug it in to your router with ethernet wire and enable local Area network and disable wireless internet connection. When you are connected with wire, To secure your network first you need to find your ip address it is usually 192.168.0.1 but sometimes it might be differant Open your system preference, and then click on network.This will take you to your active connection.From here you want to Lookunder the word status. Here you will find your IP Address.
Depending on your router settings yo may get a different IP address each time you connect. So check this before relying on it to stay the same
Type in that ip address on your internet browser and enter it should go to a log in screen to your router's hosting To access the configuration utility, open a web-browser such as Internet Explorer and enter the IP address of the router (192.168.0.1).
You may also connect using the NetBIOS name in the address bar (http://dlinkrouter).
Select Admin from the drop-down menu and then enter your password. Leave the password blank by default. once you connected enable wireless access and configure a web or Wpa secured connection and generate the web key aftre the web key generated look at the one is checked on the right side which is usually the first one wire that key down and do not loose it change your connection name change the log in name and password if you want save these settings and log off. go back to your mac and disable local area connection and re enable wireless internet connection unplug the ethernet cable and search for your connection you just named. type the web key when it is asked and save the connection after connection astablished. And you are done.

    I know it looks complicated but it realy is wery simple once you done it couple of times it will be easier. I do it all the time. Also you realy don't need the extra software to use the wireless internet and it will take up space on your computer.

Can not Connect Dlink to old Apple


I had this problem it turns out the password format is a standard 13 charactors, if yours is shorter the computer auto fills the rest, different manufacturers use different charactors. My workround was to add extra "a"s to make 13 in total on the router, match the computers on the network and off you go.

Problems setting up new macs and a new wireless system with a PC


The MAC address of the network card on the PC is probably registered with Tiscali. The easiest thing to do is to Connect the Belkin router to the internet, then go into the config and clone the MAC address of the windows PC. Once this is done, then you can either plug in the airport express, or configure wifi for the Macs from the belkin.

Just connect the computer wired on the computer your mac and no need to run the disc because it will not read it because the cd for linksys is good only for windows. You may OPEN safarri or IE browser, then try type on the address bar 192.168.1.1 - nothing for username and password is admin.

from there you may configure the router on what type of internet connection you have from you ISP, don't forget to save settings...
