SOURCE: Can't Connect to Internet

there is a need to reconfigure your router to work with your modem. If configured already before, then there is great chance that this has been set back to factory default.

SOURCE: Router seems to drop connection frequently

What a static ip is, is the ip address that the router automatically assigns to other equipment. (computers, xbox, ect.) Find D-links customer support line for help.

SOURCE: D Link model 2310

When you connected your PC directly to the modem, were you able to get the internet working automatically or did you have to run a dialup-like connection?

If it worked automatically, try this:
1. Connect a PC to a numbered port of the Dlink router (don't connect the modem to the router nor the PC)
2. Open Internet Explorer and enter http://192.168.0.1 on the address bar. This should then ask you to login. (restart the router and the PC if nothing happened then try again)
3. Enter admin for the username and blank for the password
4. Once you're on the Dlink Setup page, click on Network Settings on the left panel.
5. Change the Router IP address to 192.168.2.1 then hit Save Settings
6. Now, connect a cable from the Speedstream modem to the WAN port of the Dlink router then check if your internet is working from the wired PC.

If its still not working, turn off the modem and the router and then power the modem first (wait for the lights to be stable) then plug the router.

Hope this works for you. Goodluck!

Most routers have a defalt user/password for setup and chainges. Try "admin" "password" to gain access to router. From there you should be able to reset any passwords put on it.

My WRT54GS router is not connecting to the net


I think you don't need to upgrade the firmware.
The router might have lost the connection to the modem.
You can try to reset and reconfigure it. Or you can also try to upload or re-flash the same firmware on your router.

Connect the computer to the modem and make sure that you have active internet through the modem.
Connect the modem to the router and computer to the router.
Open the setup page of the router and reconfigure it manually.

I lost my network security key for Gigabyte GN-B41G wireless router - I need to add another computer to my home network.


Connect with your existing computer (either wired or wireless)

  • click start
  • click run
  • type CMD
  • type ipconfig and press enter
  • note the default gateway address (should be something like 192.168.1.1 for example)
  • etype exit and press enter

  • open a browser
  • enter the gateway address in the address bar i.e. http://192.168.1.1 as per the above example
  • This will take you to the login screen for the router or the setup screen in the router
  • you may need the login details for the router (if you don't have these then try the factory defaults for your router type, which you can get with a quick google search)
  • You can then find or reset the wifi key on the WiFi section of the configuration pages.

(note if you can't get into the router you can do a factory reset, HOWEVER you need to make sure you have all the broadband user account settings to attempt this)

hope this helps

Please take the time to rate this answer.

Many Thanks Don.

I have lost the security code and have a new laptop, how do i set it up to work


Hi!

If you don't remeber the wireless security code, maybe you still remeber the user and password to access the web management interface of the router.
Then you have to connect the laptop to the router by using a network cable. Open a browser window, type in the IP adress of your router and check the wireless setup section. There you can find / modify the wifi security code.

If you don't know the router's IP adress, then open on your computer a ms-dos prompt and type the command
ipconfig /all

it will display your current IP adress, subnet mask and GATEWAY. The gateway adress is the router's IP adress that must be typed into the browser.

If you don't remember the user and password for accessing the router's web interface, please refer to the router's user manual in order to reset it to factory default configuration, and then proceed as for the first installation of the router.

Hope it helped,

Bogdan

My Computer is Connecting to the router but no internet even though my modem is connected to it?


try to ping few websites and also try ping loop back.
1. Click on Start--Programs--Accessories--command prompt
2. type ping www.microsoft.com and press Enter and see whats the packets sent, received and lost.
if lost is 100% that means the router is not connected to the server and you need to contact Internet Service Provider to reconfigure the router.
you can also try to ping other websites like google.com or yahoo.com or any other website.

3. If lost is 0 % when you ping few of the websites and still you are not able to access any webpage then there could be a fault with the winsock interface of the computer, please reply soon and i'll tell you how to fix it.

Installed dlink router but wireless connection keeps going offand keeps saying acquiring network address.


Hi there, this issue happens if your computer cannot acquired IP address from the router. please test your router first if other computers can connect to it. If Yes, then theres something wrong with your computer wireless adapter. in order to resolved this issue is try to reisntall the drivers of your wireless adapter. it is usually located at the driver disk that came with the system. If other computer cant connect also to the router then there is something wrong with your router. sometimes alll you need to do there is restore the router from original factory settings by pressing the reset key. if same issue happened after reset then you have to call your routers manufacturer for possible replacement. thanks!

It lost its LAC and right now my computer is running on the wireless even though it's not wireless.


Your router's cable is connected in the wrong connection.

1. Remove the cable from the wireless connector
2. Insert it into one of the ports of the router that has LAN not WAN.
3. You will be able to connect your wireless and wired computers to the router.

This could have blue for WAN or Yellow for WAN and then the rest can have yellow for the 4 PCs to connect.
