Question about D-Link AirPlus G DWL-G700AP Wireless Access Point IEEE 802.11b/g 54 Wireless Access Point (DWLG700APFT)

1 Answer

D-Link G700AP partially reset, won't return to Factory Default.

Hello there.
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 198.254.200.53 . 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.

Setup a wireless printer


no setup cd needed. after connecting to a PC, open browser and type in 192.168.0.1 or perhaps 192.168.1.1 -- when the router displays it will ask for a password. if you had one and can't remember it do a hard reset to return to factory settings. then log into it leaving the username blank with the default factory password. many times that password is admin -- download the owner's manual that will have the default password and instructions and explanations for the settings, including how to do a "hard, factory" reset for free at the manufacturer's website. try the help, support, or download sections. the drivers are there too.

I need to get into my router network setting so I can setup a password and I don't have the original download CD, looking for the setup wizard link for this Router, any sugestions?


Reset the router to factory defaults by holding the reset key for 15 seconds with power on. Then you'll be able to use the default IP address and password as described previously. Also, the wireless will default to no encryption, so you're all set.

Type 192.168.1.1 into your browser (into the address bar). That is it's default IP. You should be able to change the settings there.

If you have forgotten your password, it is wise to reset the router, Resetting the router to the factory defaults will delete any changes you have made to the router, including any security settings. This should be used as a last resort.

The first method involves simply pressing a button located on the back of the router. The image below (courtesy of Linksys) shows where the button is located.

To reset your router, use the following steps:
  1. Press the reset button for 30 seconds. The settings should now be returned to the factory default settings, meaning any changes you had made would be deleted.
  2. Open up your Web browser and enter “192.168.1.1′ in the address bar.
  3. For the login, leave a blank ID and enter “admin” as the password.
The router has now been reset. Follow the steps in Securing Linksys WRT54G Wireless-G Router to secure your router.

The second method involves logging into the Web administration pages of the router. Use the following steps to reset the router using this method:
  1. Open your Web browser and enter the IP address of your router. By default, the address is “192.168.1.1′.
  2. Enter your user ID And password when prompted. Hopefully this has been changed, but if it hasn’t, the default is no ID and “admin” as the password.
  3. At the top of the Web page, click “Administration” and then “Factory Defaults”.
  4. Beside “Restore Factory Defaults”, click “Yes”.
  5. Now click the “Save Settings” button at the bottom of the Web page.
Your WRT54G wireless router should now be reset to the factory defaults. Ensure you follow the steps outlined in Securing Linksys WRT54G Wireless-G Router to secure your router.

Hope this helps.

D-link router


Hi,

Most wireless router has a reset either at the rear or underneath. it would be a small recessed button specifically for this purpose. It has to be pressed for about 10 seconds and should revert all settings/configuration to factory default assuming no hardware issue. For security/protection, you can try: change the configuration page's password, disable SSID broadcast (but you should know the SSID so as to put into your PCs, enable MAC filter and/or use WEP/WPA encryption/keys (but that has been known to slow down some connections).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
