Question about D-Link AirPlus G DWL-G700AP Wireless Access Point IEEE 802.11b/g 54 Wireless Access Point (DWLG700APFT)
I own a D-Link G700AP which I used to set up a broadband wireless connection. It worked well until today, when I attempted to reset it to factory settings in order to reconfig it, so I could change from ADSL to Cable Modem. I had it pristine configured, with DHCP, WEP and all.
After I reset it, it was expected to work having 192.168.0.50 as the Gateway. I plugged an ethernet cable, and oddly it gave my computer an IP I had never seen before: It was 22.214.171.124 . I never used this IP range for anything. And, to add insult to the injury, the router configures the default gateway with the SAME IP as my computer. Which means, ''Limited connectivity''.
I've been trying to reset it for the past hour, with different times. 10 seconds, 20, 30, a minute, you name it. Nothing seems to work.
5 minutes ago the WLAN lit up, and the same thing happened, only with a different IP. It was as odd as the first one, with the gateway config and all, only the IP was 169.254.118.119.
Any clues about it? It was working just fine, the reset seems to have messed it up. I got no warranty at all.
TRY THE RESET AGAIN .... UNPLUG EVERYTHING .....HOLD RESET BUTTON IN FOR A GOOD 10 SECONDS ....PLUG UNIT BACK IN AND OPEN YOUR IE EXPLORER SITE ...AS IF YOU WERE GOING TO GO ON THE INTERNET ....IN THE ADDRESS BAR ...TYPE IN ...192.168.1.....THIS SHOULD GET YOU TO THE SET-UP PAGE .....GOOD LUCK

Tips for a great answer:
1. Turn off the router
2. Locate the Reset button on the back of the router.
3. Use a paper clip to press the Reset button and power on.
4. Hold for about 5 seconds (don't hold too long) and then release. (Or, release when M1 and M2 flash at the same time.)
5. After you have completed the above steps, the router will be reset to the factory default settings
