Re: using a dlink extender

I'm assuming you mean a wrt54g, if that's the case look on the bottom of the router and see what version it is. If you have a ver. 1, 2, 3, or 4 then you don't need an extender. you can flash a 3rd party firmware into that router and turn it into a super router. If you are interested, then leave a comment and i will tell you how to do this. An extender will just cut your broadband speed in half so I would avoid that if possible. Let me know.

Have wireless pc in kitchen with this connected. Just upgraded my old Linksys to D-Link N router the pc in the kitchen will not connect now. Any help? Thanks

- you need to hard a pc to your new DLINK router by using a cat 5/6 cable (aka ethernet cable).
- open your web browser (IE, Mozilla)
- access control panel of dlink by typing on the address bar
- Select Admin from the drop-down menu and then enter your password. Leave the password blank by default.
- go to wireless settings...Check the box to enable the wireless function. If you do not want to use wireless, uncheck the box to disable all the wireless functions.
- Service Set Identifier (SSID) is the name of your wireless network. Create a name using up to 32 characters. The SSID is case-sensitive.
- Start the wizard.(wireless wizard)
- follow the steps
- I should recommend using wpa tkip
- please remember the NETWORK KEY...this is your password

for your linksys..

make sure the device driver is properly install. use the linksys program to scan your wireless setup you just made. then connect...

hope this helps

You can use any UTP cables. Here is how the connection would look like:

DLINK PORT 1(or any other ports) <---> COMPUTER

If the router is set to give out IP addresses automatically(DHCP), you should be able to connect flawlessly.

Can not connect to internet

My first guess is that your Dlink ADSL modem is really a modem router, so you are getting double routing. Sometimes this works just fine, though, so I'm not confident that's the whole explanation.
You'll need to setup your IP plan carefully
set the D-Link modem(router?) to bridging mode & the DLink wireless router does the login to Exetel.
DLink wireless router WAN side: DHCP + login to Exetel
DLink wireless router LAN side:
DHCP on: range to .20
DNS Servers:,
with PC's wireless adaptor set to DHCP
so picks up eg:
IP address:
Gateway address:
DNS Servers:,

Sharing internet from dlink 510g to linksys wap54g AP

yes, the manufacturer doesn't really matter as long as they are 802.11g (usually backwards compatible with a and b) so as long as the router and the adapters are installed properly NO problem

Can't Connect to wireless router

First, if you are using XP, and installed the Dlink Adapter Utility on your computer, you need to turn off the Windows Zero Wireless Configuration Utility in the Services Panel.. (it is not a good idea to run both the Proprietary Utility (Dlink) AND the Windows Utility..

If you did not install this Dlink Utilty, Ignore the following!

Start > Run > services.msc (ok)

Services Window pops up.

Scroll down to the Windows Zero Wireless Configuration and Disable it.

Now, try to connect again and see if the password box comes up!

BTW: you need to make sure that the type of Encryption you setup on the router is compatible with your card. In other words, make sure that if you enabled WAP that the card supports it...
