Question about D-Link AirPlus G Wireless Range Extender DWL-G710 (dwlg710) Repeater

1 Answer

WURE channel switching

I have a DWL-G710 Wireless Range Extender, which works fine...except that some of the computers in our home do not allow the user to select between the original (channel 1) and the extended (channel 11). Instructions indicate that the SSID and password must be the same, and as such it works. Windows XP, however, shows them both as the SSID only (no channel details), and so computers regularly are closing down to one channel and opening to the other in the middle of work, interrupting for up to a minute and causing great frustration. Is there any way to fix this?

Don't know what you mean by this comment. Both the router and the range extender must be setup to operate on the same FIXED channel, as well as the same SSID and encryption key. Extended Range is a totally separate option which is capable of taking advantage of specific features of specific chips in routers and range extenders. I would advise against using it.

Trouble logging into a D-Link DWL-G710 Wireless


Let me try to get the info straight:

Your computers IP address (manually configured): 192.168.1.4
D-Link Range Extender IP: 192.168.0.30

If this is correct, you will need to change your IP to something like:

192.168.0.X (make sure it's not in use on your network already)

otherwise you will not be able to connect to it with your comptuer.

Try to configure your new router and you have to reconfigure the Range extender to tally with the new router. The IP Address that the range extender should have should depend on the DHCP server of your router that provides the IP Address.

Got a DWL-G710 wireless extender that will not


First I would try a reset, as this extender should would with your default settings of your network.
I would suggest just giving your router a reset. Here are the procedures for your particular router:
Reset Procedure
Step 1 Locate the reset pinhole on the back of the unit.

Step 2 With the unit powered on, press and hold the Reset button.

Step 3 Hold the Reset button for about 10 seconds.

Step 4 Release the Reset button.

Step 5 The unit will reboot. Allow 20-30 seconds before reconnecting.

Step 6 The device is now at factory defaults.

make sure to setup your wireless security again and make sure to set an admin password on your router after the restart.

DWL-G710 won't connect to 192.168.0.30


Here is a link to the manual for your DWL-G710.
D-Link manual on page 13 it lists the url entry should be
"http://192.168.0.30" This is a HTTP link not a HTTPS.
Also the address you typed in might be a typo. The IP address should be 192.168.0.30 not 192.168.0.30.

GOOD LUCK!!!!

No internet connection via DWL-G710


Your extender may not be able to talk to the router. Make sure you have set default gateway in extender to IP of the router. Turn off encryption first. Check the router if extender shows up in active client list or active mac address list.

the IP address must be different on the router & extender but use the same subnet mast. The extender has to have the gateway set as the IP address on the router.
