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

When I turn it on it acts as if it's not connected

When I turn it on power led gives a solid light, all 4 LAN LEDs and WAN LED keep on flashing simultaneously, while status led doesn't give anything and local area connection indicator on my PC says that network cable is unplugged. all LEDs give green light. i tried to solve this by reseting a router, but nothing has changed. by the way all cables I used(3 of them) are working properly. I don't know if that's of any importance but my brother was using it for a few weeks without any trouble, and when I turned it on the first time it was all well except that I couldn't go on the internet, so I had to contact my ISP for assistance and they asked for MAC and I read it to them.

Re: when I turn it on it acts as if it's not connected

I called D-Link yesterday with the problem. Same as last time: they couldn't help me, and said a better tech would call the next day.

I left the router unplugged from the power for the night.

They called the next day, so I plugged it back in. It worked.

Cheap solution, I know; but you may want to try to unplug the router from the power for about a day. That worked for me. The unit may have overheated or have had a power surge (probably a surge in my case). Another tip: don't stack your router and modem (or any other device) as it causes it to heat up too much. Hope that helps.

Note that incoming traffic will cause the WAN (or Internet) light to blink even if it is 'probe' traffic trying to break in to your network. Such traffic is to be expected and is the reason you have firewall functionality in your gateway router.

On the inside, there is a bit of traffic on any LAN when the computers are turned on. Messages generated by the router itself are used to find computers and printers for a lot of different legitimate reasons.

I have a Zhone ADSL2+ 4 Port Wireless Bridge/Router, model number 1518-A1-UK-0MA. it as working perfectly until one day when i turned it ON, only the ADSL LED is lit, no other LEDs are on, nor the power...

Please use the following steps:
1. Remove the router and connect it directly from the pc to the modem.
2. Power cycle: turn the modem off and then the computer for 30 seconds, then turn them both back on, modem first.
3. Check you internet connection to see if it working.
4. If it working, connect the router back up. If it not working contact your ISP for dsl support.
5. Once the router is connected, release/renew the ip address. Go to the dos command type ipconfig/release press enter. Then type ipconfig/renew. Check your ip address, you shouldn't get an ip address starting with 169. If you do, this mean you have a problem with the router getting an ip address.
6. Check you internet connection after the release/renew

My d-link router name no longer appears in my wireless networks list - I can not find it to connect to the internet wirelessly

Hi, this seems to be either an issue with your router's hardware or local computer wireless adapter hardware. In order to determine which one is it do the following:

1. Go and check the LEDs on your wireless router to see if there are any blinking or switched off as stated in the official manual documentation for DLink products (can be found here or here more specific).
LEDS are as follows (left to right - per official user manual/doc):
- Power LED = A solid light indicates a proper connection to the power supply. cdekatrr_0.png
- Internet LED = A solid light indicates a proper connection to the Internet port. This LED blinks during data transmission. cdekatrr_1.png
- WLAN LED = A solid light indicates that the wireless segment is ready. The LED blinks during wireless data transmission. cdekatrr_2.png
- Local Network LEDs = A solid light indicates a connection to an Ethernet-enabled computer on ports 1-4. This LED blinks during data transmission. cdekatrr_3.png

2. Check the laptop's or desktop wireless adapter if it is disabled or enabled and if is disabled enable it by going to your computer's Control Panel (either winxp or vista/win7) and go to network connections (in vista/win7 put the control panel in detailed view to see more options) and then right click on your wireless connection and click enable.

3. In a case that also the wireless adapter is enabled but you still cannot see any access points/wireless networks please go to your current wireless connection and right click go "Diagnose", this feature is mainly available in windows 7 or Vista. For windows XP, go to the command prompt by going to Start->Run->type in the box "cmd" without the quotes->Then type in the following set of commands.
ipconfig /release ---> This will refresh your wireless card IP settings/configuration to 0.
and after that command finishes, type in:
ipconfig /renew --> This will get new settings if the wireless card has problems finding an address from your router.

You can always reset your router (unplug from power supply, wait 2minutes then plug it back in)
Reset the wireless adapter (right click from on the wireless adapter shown in the network connections, disable and then re-enable it) or computer.

Thanks please let me know if you need anything else.

No wireless connection for laptop. Linksys router - model #wrt160n v2

you can run a direct line to that router and go to the cisco web site and get the information you need to run that router. its a pdf format and is 2.56 Meg. Try this

SecureEasySetup (Orange/White) The Cisco logo is the Router's SecureEasySetup button. It

lights up and will stay orange when the Router is powered on. The color orange indicates that

the Router is not using the SecureEasySetup feature, while the color white indicates that the

Router is using the SecureEasySetup feature. When the Router enters SecureEasySetup

mode, the Cisco logo will turn white and start flashing. After the Router has generated

the SSID and WPA Personal key, the Cisco logo will stop flashing and stay white.

To clear the SSID and WPA Personal key, press and hold down the Cisco logo for five seconds.

The Cisco logo will flash slowly as the Router resets itself. The Cisco logo will turn orange to

indicate a successful reset.NOTE: SecureEasySetup is a feature that makes

it easy to set up your wireless network. If you have SecureEasySetup devices, run the Router's

Setup Wizard CD-ROM and follow the onscreen instructions to use SecureEasySetup.

Power (Green) The Power LED lights up and will stay on while the Router is powered

on. When the Router goes through its selfdiagnostic mode during every boot-up, this

LED will flash. When the diagnostic is complete, the LED will be solidly lit.

DMZ (Green) The DMZ LED indicates when the DMZ function is being used. This LED will

remain lit as long as DMZ is enabled. WLAN (Green) The WLAN LED lights up when

the wireless feature is enabled. If the LED is flashing, the Router is actively sending or

receiving data over the network. 1, 2, 3, 4 (Green) These numbered LEDs, corresponding with the numbered ports on the Router's back panel, serve two purposes. If the LED is continuously lit, the Router is successfully connected to a device through that port. A flashing LED indicates network activity over that port.

Internet (Green) The Internet LED lights up when there is a connection made through the

Internet port. A flashing LED indicates network activity over the Internet port.

Good luck

I have RV082 Router , and Diag Led is constant what to do

Checking the Router's LEDs

The Linksys router's front panel will indicate the status of the connection. After connecting the broadband modem to the WAN or Internet port, the computer to an available numbered port and powering on the router check the lights on the front panel of the router.

The Linksys router's front panel will indicate the status of the connection. After connecting the broadband modem to the WAN or Internet port, the computer to an available numbered port and powering on the router, the following should be lit:
  • 1 - 8 (LAN)
  • DMZ/Internet (WAN2)
  • Internet (WAN1)
  • Diag
  • System

Checking the Router's LEDs
Step 1:
Make sure the System LED is lit.

NOTE: If the Diag LED doesn't goes off, you need to upgrade the router's firmware. For instructions, click here .

Step 2:
Make sure the LAN 1-8 ports is lit depending on the computers connected to the designated Ethernet port.

NOTE: If the LAN 1-8 port is not lit, make sure that the computer is powered on. You can also try connecting the PC using another working cable.

Step 3:
Make sure the Internet (WAN1) and DMZ/Internet (WAN2) LED is lit.
NOTE: If the Internet or DMZ/Internet LED is not lit make sure the Broadband modem is powered on and that the modem is properly connected to the Ethernet port

You can access the web-based user interface utility of the RV082 by using one of two methods:

  • Through the RV082 IP address ( by default), or
  • Through its default hostname ("RV082")

1. Open a web browser (Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator)

· By IP address: Type ( is the default IP address of the RV082)

and click Go or press the [Enter] key.

· By Hostname: Type http://RV082 and click Go or press the [Enter] key.

2. When the username and password prompt appears, type admin in both the username and password fields. (admin is both the default username and default password for the RV082).

Hello, Good question..Phone line to DSL modem, Ethernet cable to WAN port on Router. If connecting a PC wired to Router, connect Ethernet cable from 1 of 4 LAN ports on Back of router to ethernet port on PC. This would be Physical connection...
It's always smart to set a restore point in case something goes wrong during installation of any program. For wireless connection from laptop or PC: install router software on computer. Reboot computer. In browser address bar enter This brings up a window for user name and password. Enter "admin" for both. This allows you to change many settings including Changing SSID(Router Name), User name and password. Enabling WEP or WPA security. Hope this Helps, Good Luck..!!

Problem after firmware update Edimax BR-6114Wg

Hi Fklco,

Why are you connecting the WAN,, (the internet modem cable), to the standard ports? It should have a WAN port, for the cable from the modem, and a LAN for the cables to the computer?

On the other hand, if it is working, I would leave well enough alone, :D

Power led on and the 4 LAN ports lights but no pc connected.

Don't know if it makes a difference, but using a UK peice of hardware in Spain may be the problem. Or have you had it working before now? No saber si diferencia, pero usar un peice BRIT?NICO del hardware en Espa?a puede ser el problema. ¿O lo has tenido el trabajar antes de ahora?
