The PC and Mac don't interact when they are connected to the router. The router provides a DHCP server, and the PC and Mac should simply log in to the router and run fine. If the router is a new addition too, you'll need to connect the WAN port on the router to your DSL or Cable Modem's ethernet port... and then hook up the computers to any of the open ethernet ports on the router. An ethernet port looks like an extra large phone cable connector.

You may need to clone your MAC address, a unique address is for each device connected to a network. Some internet service provider (ISP) modems quit working if the MAC address of the device connected to its Ethernet or LAN jack (i.e., your computer) changes from the one used when it was first set up. So when you hook up a new router to share the connection, you run into the problem you have.

Cloning the MAC address in the router sets it to the same address as the device connected to its number 1 wired port. Since you didn't give the brand and model of your router I can't give you specific steps or links to follow for the process. But it's typically very simple. From the computer originally used to set up your modem, access the router's setup pages. On the appropriate page, pick "clone MAC address" from a menu or click on a button. You can search for "<insert your brand of router here> cloning MAC address" and find many sites with how-to information. A good starting point is always the router manufacturer's site, where there is probably already an answer in their support FAQ section.

Once the router MAC address has been cloned, you should have your Internet access back and will be able to use the wireless access.

When i hook up my router , it cannot be plugged up too the computer to give off internet, so my desktop no longer has internet when the router is hooked up

Try unplugging the power cable of the modem for about 15 minutes to let the memory clear the MAC address of the computer.
After 15 minutes, plug in the modem while connected to the router.
This should allow the modem to use the MAC address of the router and provide an IP address to it.

II gave my router to my mother it has already been set up for an encryption I gave them the passkey and it is not working could this be due to the fact she has dsl internet and I had cable

>No, it really doesn't matter what type of service you have.
>To get it fixed just make sure that if your mom uses a modem and you hooked the router to it, modem must be in BRIDGED mode before you can make the router work.
>To set the modem to bridged mode you need to contact your mom's DSL provider so they can walk through it

In the diagram below, if this is your setup, modem has to be on Bridged Mode:

Who is you ISP? if you're using cable connection follow these steps:

1. Connect modem to WAN port of the WBR-2310
2. Connect computer to port 1 of the WBR-2310
3. Open web browser (IE, firefox,chrome,safari), and type in into your address bar
4.Into the log-in page username:admin password: (none) on "SETUP"
6. Click on "MANUAL CONFIGURE" the Internet connection type, make sure that it must be in DYNAMIC IP DHCP
8. Click on CLONE YOUR PC's MAC ADDRESS button(notice that mac address will change after you click on that button)
9. Click on SAVE settings now and it will count down click on Continue after that
10. Then Try to ACCESS Internet

/... but if still you cannot access Internet try to power cycle the modem and the router.. follow these steps also

1. turn off bothe modem and router (just unplug the power cord)
2. after 1 minute, TURN ON first the modem,
3. after 1 minute again, TURN ON the router
4. after 1 minute try to access Internet

But if still no Internet connection, please look for the brand of your modem if it is speedstream 5100 or hugesnet or actiontec modem because those modem have the same IP address with your DLINK router and you need to change the IP address of your DLink then....

My internet won't go wireless

routher cable must be connected to the Internet, then connect the cable routher - pc and run your browser in order to configure the connection. check that you have enabled wifi, save the settings and check if it works. Make sure that your ISP does not grant the Internet through the network adapter MAC address, in which case you will need to change your MAC address on the routhera which you used previously.

No internet access out of router

Some ISPs require you use a known MAC address. This is a setting that can be adjusted on your router. This link should walk you through the troubleshooting sequence. If that doesn't help you, then this other link will take you through a number of different possibilities. If all else fails here is a list of customer support phone numbers

How do i hook a mac to a PC using the D-Link? I need help ASAP!

Hi, basically it really doesn't matter what sort of PC ya using... when ya connect up to the WiFi Router, the PC "Detects the SSID" (An SSID is just a unique name say.. My_WiFi) of said Router, and then with the "Remote" Computer, you simply look for, and then connect to, that network. The DHCP address server in the Router will automatically assign the "Remote" PC a WiFi address.. and from then on it doesn't really matter what any other Operating Systems the PC's are using as you are not actually connecting to them, per se, but rather conecting thru the WiFi Router to the internet. To access other PC's Windows "Files & Data" from a "Mac" & vice versa, is a slightly different matter.. but still easy to set up. The links below will be of assistance to you in setting it all up. - 26k The best way to connect up a Modem & separate WiFi Router... is: Connect Modem to Router, Router to A "Main" PC, via Ethernet cable. (Router set to DCHP Server & assign an SSID) All Other PC's connect to the "WiFi Router". After setting up an "Unsecured Network" & when & after, it is all working. THEN one can set up WEP security keys for the WiFi network.
