Here are some troubleshooting steps that I suggest you try:

1. Check physical connections.

a. Connect the modem to the Internet port of the router. The Internet “i” LED on the front of the router should light up.
b. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports (i.e port 1, 2, 3 or 4) on the back of the router. The corresponding port light where you connected the computer should be lit up.

2. Access the router's web-based utility.

a. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
b. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
c. A window will prompt for a user name and password. By default, the user name is "admin" and the password is "password".

Note: If you were unable to access the router's web-based utility, you may reset the router to restore the settings to factory default.

To reset the router:

a. Please push the reset button at the back of the router and release after 30 seconds.
b. Unplug the power adapter for 10 seconds and then plug it back in.

3. Configure the router.

If your Internet Service Provider is using a cable connection, please follow the steps below:

a. Click on Basic Settings under Setup tab.
b. Select No for Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?.

a. Click on Basic Settings.
b. Select Yes for Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?.
c. Select Other on the Internet Service Provider drop down box.

4. Configure the wireless settings.

a. Click on the Wireless Settings under Setup.
b. Change the SSID to any unique name.
c. Scroll down, look for the Security Options settings and select WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy).
d. Set the Authentication type to "Automatic" and the Encryption Strength to "64bit".
e. Leave the Passphrase field blank, select Key 1 and enter a 10-digit number.

Note: The 10-digit number you typed in the key 1 will be the password or network key for the wireless connection.

f. Click Apply button to save the changes.
g. Go to Router Status under Maintenance tab and check if there is an IP address under Internet port. If it's 0.0.0.0, do a power cycle.

5. Power cycle.

a. Power off the modem, router and computers.
b. Turn on the power of the modem first and wait for it to initialize, the lights to stop blinking.
c. Power back the router and the computers. Check if it will be able to get online.

After cable co. split cable and installed another modem, D-Link WBR 2310 router no longer works with its original modem. Tried resetting, unplugging, etc. Can't get wireless.


Use an Ethernet cable to connect your computer to one of the LAN ports.
Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD
Press Enter
Type IPCONFIG
Press Enter
Look for a line of output like:

Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 123.468.32.1

Start Internet Explorer
Type http://123.468.32.1
Press Enter
Login to your router
Click to run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard", to:
1. set an SSID
2. set an encryption-level, e.g., 'WPA' or 'WPA2'
3. set a password for your network
Click OK to restart your computer

Use your wireless device to connect to that SSID, using that password that you set.]

You may access the setup page of the router to get the network key. You will need to use a computer hardwired to the router. Check the ip address of the computer (control panel -> network connections-> right click Local Area Connection and select Status) and take note of the default gateway.

The default gateway is the ip address of the router.

On your browser's address bar, type the default gateway, usually it is 192.168.1.1. It will ask you for the username and password.

By default leave the username blank then the password is admin.

Once on the setup page, go to Wireless -> Wireless security. You will see the network key on this page.

I hope this helps!

Cant get into 192.168.1.1 to fix problem


Do you have cable or DSL internet service? On a DSL setup the router is at 192.168.2.1 . At the run command, ipconfig/all will give all the current settings of your network connection. The line with default gateway is your router address.

Check the status lights on your router and modem as well as the network connection on your computer. You may want to try connecting to the modem itself with a wired connection and then reconnect the router and see if you can connect with a wired connection from the computer to the router.

If your network works normally with a wired connection, use the device manager to check your wireless connection. Also go through the router setup to check that no settings have been changed.

If you have missing lights on either the modem or the router, check the cables (replace them if you can) and transformers. A call for service from your ISP may be needed if the modem isn't connecting. (At least once, my DSL network went down after a lightning strike damaged the signal filter where the DSL split from the phone line.)

I hope this helps.

(I have an older router that does not give a local area connection if it loses the WAN from the modem.)

Wireless set up problem - no gateway ip or limited connectivity


Connect using Lan Cable
be sure to enable java on your Browser.
Use ONLY IE: some router refuse other browser.
SET your PC on a static IP address on SAME subnet as your router (but of course different IP).
If subnet concept is NOT clear to just just ask here.
When connected with router (on Lan Cable) check every setting (WPA-PSK) TKIP key, Broadcast / Channel etc.
You can also disable every WLAN protection and restore it later.
Activate WLAN connection WHEN you are STILL connected.
Last but not least: SET your DNS IP address = your gateway IP (router)
