Question about D-Link RangeBooster G WBR-2310 Wireless Router (WBR2310)

1 Answer

Connected to Network, but not the Internet.

My laptop didn't work for a while so I unplugged the router and directly connected the modem to my desktop. Now that I got the laptop fixed, I tried plugging the router back in. Everything is where it's supposed to, and it says I'm connected to the Unnamed Network, but it won't connect to the Internet? How do I fix this?

    It didn't work.



    The lights on the router are strange now IMO. The power light is the only light that doesn't flash. The triangle inside the circle constantly flashes, along with the Computer 1 icon. The three circles icon barely flickers, but it is flickering.

    I can't connect to 192.168.0.1. It takes me to a google page about that IP address.

  • malchik888 Mar 12, 2009

    Okay, I did that and got 75.93.48.1, so I typed that into the browser and all I get is an internet search again. :/

  • malchik888 Mar 12, 2009

    When I refresh the page and everything, I switch to direct connect, but when you give me tips I'll switch it to the router first then try them.

  • malchik888 Mar 12, 2009

    Okay, so my laptop is connected to the router via ethernet cable. Only two cords are plugged into the router, the ethernet and the power cord. The modem is still connected to the desktop. Is this all right?

  • malchik888 Mar 12, 2009

    The command promt doesn't return anything after typing in "ipconfig" it just says there is no wireless connection.

  • malchik888 Mar 12, 2009

    They all say "Media Disconnected."

    On your desktop, open a web browser and go to 192.168.0.1 log in as user name: admin password leave blank. run through the internet connection wizard and the wireless setup wizard

    open up a command prompt and type in "ipconfig". find the "default gateway" should be 192.168.x.x. this is the address to connect to your router. type this into the web browser and follow the previous instructions. I will get this figured out for you.

    this computer is connected to the router, right? not directly to the modem.

    connect your laptop to the router via ethernet cable and keep the desktop online


  • lord_loki
    lord_loki Mar 12, 2009

    this is the best and fastest way to troubleshoot it. Now on your laptop, open the command line and find the default gateway. Follow the previous steps but on your laptop

    there should be another on for the local area network or lan try scrolling up

    did you try the 192.168.0.1 in the web browser?

  • lord_loki
    lord_loki Mar 12, 2009

    do you have a green light for the port that the laptop is plugged into? this should be on of the numbered computers on the front of the router. If you don't then you should try a different ethernet cable or check and make sure you have the network device enabled on your laptop

L cannot get internet when connected to my router, but l get internet when connected to modem directly.


Your ISP allows only one device to connect to their network.
When you change devices (router versus computer),
you need to power-off the ISP's modem, and unplug it.
Connect the router to the modem, and connect your computer to your router.
Plug the modem back in, and the modem will "forget" what device was previously connected.

Connected to wifi but no internet connection


Wireless networks have become an increasingly popular way to access the Internet. Connecting to a wireless network allows you to browse the Internet without having to physically connect any cords to your computer.


Troubleshooting wireless connectivity can sometimes be confusing, because even if a wireless network is not able to bring you to any web pages, often your computer's wireless card will still connect to the wireless network that is being broadcast.


In other words, a wireless network will read "connected" even if it is not connected to the Internet.


Connect to a different wireless network. If there is an alternate wireless network within range of your computer that you legally are able to use (a free public Wi-Fi rather than your neighbor's wireless network, for instance), try connecting to it and browsing the Internet.


If the same issue occurs on the alternate wireless network, you may have an issue with your computer's wireless card or with your Internet browser.


If you are able to connect to the alternate network but still not able to connect to your own, the problem is most likely localized to the wireless network you use at home.


Reset all devices.

The great majority of Internet connection issues can be resolved by a simple reset of all the devices in your home network.


Locate the power cords of both your modem and your wireless router and unplug them (if you use a modem/router combination, simply unplug its power cord) for a full 30 seconds.


Plug them back in and restart your computer.

Try to connect to the Internet using your wireless network after your computer has booted back up.


If the connection still fails, some further troubleshooting is required.

Bypass your wireless router.


If your computer's wireless card is connecting to your wireless network of choice yet you are still not able to access any websites, there may be a connection issue on either your modem or router.


The easiest way to locate the problem is to temporarily eliminate the router from the network. Locate the Ethernet cable that connects your modem to your router and unplug it from the router.


Plug the cable directly into one of the Ethernet ports on your computer and reset the modem in the manner described above.


Now try your Internet connection again. If there is still no Internet access, the problem is most likely with your modem or your computer; contact the technical support department of your Internet service provider (ISP) for further assistance.


If the modem goes online directly connected, your router is causing the problem and may need to be reconfigured. Contact the router manufacturer for further assistance.


Hope this helps

My laptop and my iphone indicate that my wireless-g broadband router is putting out a wireless signal; but neither accessory works on the network, even though the bars are entirely full on the devices.


The bars on your laptop or iPhone means that you are connected to the router! Not necessarily to internet. Your internet depends on ISP Internet service provider and modem which connected to your router. To check if you have active internet connection connect your laptop directly to modem provided by your ISP with ethernet cable and try to open a internet browser IE or Safari or Chrome or Firefox and open a webpage! If you are able to connect internet by this mean you have internet connection active. Now disconnect your lap top from modem and connect modem to your Linksys router using WAN port of LINKSYS! Its good to power off and power on (power cycle) once on modem and router to make it work!
good luck!

I cant connect to internet


There are lots of possibilities here since you didn't give us much info to go on. Some helpful information would be:

1. DSL, Cable Modem, Sat Modem, other ISP
2. Is the problem with the router, or the network connection
3. What are the model numbers on your router, and if that doesn't connect directly to the wall, what does it connect to.
4. are you connecting from a desktop or laptop
5. are you connected to the router over wireless, or Ethernet cable
6. are there any other devices in your house/apartment that can connect to the internet (is 1 device down, or are all the devices down)

With the little information we have, I would suggest unplugging your router for about 30 seconds, then plug it back in. It will take anywhere from 30 seconds to several minutes to reset and reconnect.

If this doesn't fix the issue, give some more details and I will give the next step.

Thanks,

The internet connection in my area went down yesterday, but i didn't know this and thought the reason i couldn't access internet was a problem with my linksys wrt54g router. So i unplugged and...


The first thing you should do is a proper 'powercycle' for all of your internet equipment.

To do this:

1) Unplug the power to your modem and your router, and power off your computer.
2) Wait a full minute.
3) Plug the power back in to JUST the modem.
4) Wait some more - for the modem to fully connect to your ISP, and the lights to indicate. If you're not sure, just wait about 2-3 minutes.
5) Plug the power back into the router.
6) Wait another minute or two for the router to finish connecting.
7) Then turn the computer back on.

You can bypass the computer turning on and off if you can repair your wireless connection.

If this doesn't work, there is a pinhole sized reset button on the router itself that you will need a toothpick or somesuch to press - press and hold the button for 5 seconds, and then try the steps above again. If you do this, the network id and password will be reset to the default, just like it was when you bought it.

Unable to connect to internet through Linksys WRT160N router. Can unplug it and internet is fine. Tried power cycling the modem and router. Linksys comes up with all lights flashing and will not...


If I understand your problem correctly, you are able to connect to the Internet when you hook the computer directly to the modem, but not when the router is connected to the modem.
If this is the case, then you need to do a power drain on the modem. Power cycling the modem is not enough to clear the NVRAM of the MAC address of your computer. You have to unplug the power cord of the modem for 15 to 20 minutes in order for the NVRAM to reset and allow the modem to recognize the MAC address of the router.
After the modem has been unplugged for 15 to 20 minutes, disconnect the power cable from the router and then connect router to the modem using the Ethernet cable.
Next with the router power cord still disconnected, plug in the power cord of the modem and allow the modem to sync to the network.
Once the modem is finished with its start-up, plug-in the power cord of the router and let it sync to the network.
After the modem has completed its start-up, it should now be connected to the internet.
Good Luck
