1 Answer

Bridge will not find router

My router reset and the bridge lost the ability to see it. I can not get my bridge to recognize the wireless signal. I know that the router is sending out a signal because I can get online. I need the bridge to find the wireless signal so that I can connect my printer to my computer.

Setting up a wireless router with a Windows client can be complicated.
There are a number of measures and options that have to be understood, and it's all too easy to make a mistakes--but D-Link provides an easy-to-walk-through configuration system to help you set up your D-Link wireless router.

Plug one end of the Ethernet cable into the DSL modem.

Then plug the other end into the "WAN" port on the back of the D-Link wireless router.

Connect wired computers to any of the other Ethernet ports on the router using another Ethernet cable.

Access the D-Link Configuration Screen

Open your web interface and type "http://192.168.0.1" into the address bar, then hit "Enter" or "Return."

Use "Admin" as the username and leave the password blank when the login screen appears.

Click "OK." You should now see the D-Link configuration screen.

Set Up General Security

Change your administrative password by clicking on the "Tools" tab and choosing the "Admin" button. Enter a new password under the "Administrator" heading.

Confirm it, and click "Apply."
Disable the wireless Local Area Network (LAN) if you don't need to use the wireless access and you want to make sure no one else is able to access your network.

Under the "Home" tab, choose "Wireless" and select the "Off" option.

Enable Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP)

Locate the "Home" tab in the D-Link Configuration screen, and click on the "Wireless" button.

Use the "Open System" button beside "Authentication."

Select the "Enabled" button next to "WEP," and set the encryption key to "128 bit."

Set the "Key Type" to "ASCII" and choose a 13-digit password for the "Key 1" field.

Write down the password in a secure location.

Click "Apply."

Change the SSID

Change the SSID to make it more difficult for others to locate and use your network by clicking on the "Home" tab and locating the "Wireless" button.

Change the default SSID to one of your choosing, then click "Apply."

Disable SSID broadcasting.
Under the "Advanced" tab, click on "Performance" and check off the "Disabled" box. Again, click "Apply."
Filter MAC Addresses

Click the "Advanced" tab in the D-Link "Configuration" screen and select the "Filters" button.

Choose the "MAC Filters" and click on "Only Allow Computers with MAC Address Listed Below to Connect to the Network."

Enter the name and MAC address of the computers allowed to access the network, beginning with the one you are currently configuring.

Click "Apply."

SOURCE: dlink dap 1522

I think I was having a similar problem with my DAP-1522 ... FW Version 1.10 being used as an access point. I recently discovered that I was not able to connect to the configuration pages using a web browser by typing in it's IP address (192.168.0.50). When I originally set this up device up on my network, it worked just fine, but at some point in time, it stopped working. My solution to this problem was to set the switch on the back of the 1522 from Auto to AP, then re-boot the DAP-1522 by removing power, waiting 10 seconds, then plugging power back in. Once the AP re-booted, I was then able to access the configuration login page by typing 192.168.0.50 into my browser. My DAP-1522 access point is connected via port 1 to my D-link router, a DGL-4100, via a DGS-2208, 8 port gigabit switch. Hope this helps!

WIRELESS OUT OF RANGE


Move closer. That's not always an option though. Here are some tips to improve the range of wireless routers:

1) Locate the router higher in the building rather than lower (1st or second floor is better than a basement location).

2) Place the router in a location that will offer the least resistance to the signals - it is easier to pass wifi signals through gypsum board than it is for concrete / brick or walls with aluminum siding on them.

3) Change the antenna(s) on the router to a type that offers more gain. Typical router omni directional antennas offer 3dB to 5dB or gain - there are others that offer 7 dB or more of omnidirectional gain for reasonable prices. The antenna gain works for both transmit from and receive to the router.

4) if the device you wirsh to connect to the router is in one place, consider a directional Yagi antenna. These antennas concentrate the entire wifi signal in a direction that is 30 degrees wide and can allow the signal to be seen 5, 6 or even more times further in one direction - instead of being spread out over 360 degrees. These antennas cost a little more, but can solve the problem quickly.

5) Replace the manufacturer's stock firmware of selected routers with a 3rd party type such as DD-WRT or Tomato. Either of these will work with your Linksys WRT54G router. One of the benefits is the ability to boost output power of the wifi radio in the new settings the firmware offers. Read about both and decide if either is something you're comfortable doing.

6) Add additional wifi routers configured as a bridge or an access point to extend the wifi signal into an underserved area. DD-WRT supports bridging as shown here.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Can I use one wireless router to connect to my primary wireless router?


You wouldn't use a wireless router for the second device -- you would use a wireless bridge device. Most Wireless Access Points can be configured to be wireless bridge devices or you may be able to find a dedicated wireless bridge. Unfortunately, these devices usually have just one Ethernet port. That will mean that you'll need to buy an Ethernet switch in addition to the device that you're going to be using as a wireless bridge. This will add to your cost and make it so there is no real cost savings by using the Wireless Bridge + Ethernet switch combination.
If you can find a wireless bridge unit that has more than one Ethernet port, then you may be in business.
Using a second wireless router will not work unless the device has the ability to be configured to be a wireless bridge. Such routers are usually more expensive than your typical router, but you might get lucky and find one at a good price.
Good Luck

I have the wireless -G music bridge (model WMB54G) - I had forgotten the password so I reset it - Now, my computer will not recognize it - any suggestions?


The Linksys Wireless-G Music Bridge (WMB54G) has a web-based setup page that allows the user to customize settings and set up advanced properties.
Step 1:
Open a web browser.

Step 2:
Go to the Address bar and enter your router's IP Address, then press [Enter].

NOTE: The default IP Address of a WMB54G is 192.168.1.210.


NOTE: If the IP address of the WMB54G has been changed, type the WMB54G's new IP address in the Address bar instead.

The WMB54G's IP address can be changed by:

    • Running the WMB54G's setup CD.

    • Changing it on the WMB54G's web-based setup page.

If you forgot the WMB54G's IP address you can:

  • Press the Reset button underneath the antenna for 30 seconds.

NOTE: This procedure will reset the WMB54G to factory defaults. Any settings on the Music Bridge will be erased. The Music Bridge's IP address will be 192.168.1.210and the password will be "admin" after resetting.





Step 3:
A new window will prompt for a User name and Password. Leave the User name field blank, type "admin" in the Password field, then click OK.

NOTE: If the password of the WMB54G has been changed, type the Music Bridge's new password in the Password field instead.

Reset bridge to different router without the disk.


Follow these steps :
•1
Reset the bridge. Accomplish this by manually disconnecting the power source from the wall or the back of the bridge. Leave it disconnected for 30 seconds to a minute so that the software contained therein can fully reset. Reconnect the bridge and wait two to three minutes until the network is back up and running again. In many cases, a simple reset can solve your network-related bridge problems.
•2
Ascertain whether there is network activity on your computers. Accomplish this by looking at the back of each computer at the network card. There should be two lights next to your Ethernet port--at least one of these lights should be completely lit without flickering. This indicates that the network card in the machine is operational and ready to receive a signal, eliminating that as a possible problem source.
•3
Move the bridge to a different location to determine whether interference is preventing the network computers from receiving a proper signal. If possible, relocate the bridge to the same room in which the computers are located and try to reset the connection again.
•4
Determine whether the bridge has failed altogether or whether the wireless signal from the bridge has failed. Accomplish this by physically connecting the computers to the wireless bridge through the use of Ethernet cables. If this restores network connectivity, you know that the only problem with the bridge is the wireless signal emission.

Samsung NC10 will not connect to any network


If WLAN and Wireless cards are enabled, then you may have to unplug your router for 10 seconds to reset it. They tend to build up a static charge. Unplug wireless router for 10 seconds, plug back in and you should be fine in a minute or two with full connectivity

ZyXel P660HW-T1 ... Problem bridging 2 wirless adsl routers


What do you mean by "wireless bridging"? Does it mean wirelessly connecting both routers? (ex. Zyxel is at location A and Micronet ais at Location B and you'll wirelessly connect them). If this is what you mean, then it might not be possible since those are two different brands and possibility is that they will not work with each other when they're wirelessly connected unless one or both routers have the capability to do so.

Wireless Bridge


do this to change from routing mode to bridging mode, which allows your MN-500 to act as a wireless access point. Important: If you follow the procedures I've listed below instead of the procedures documented in the MN-500 User Guide, you will not lose the ability to administer the MN-500. This will give you the ability to change the SSID, channel, and encryption key if needed without performing a factory reset of the base station and starting from scratch. 1. While logged into the BSMT, click the Local Area Network link and access the Settings page. 2. Change the IP address from the default (192.168.2.1) to another IP in the same range and set the DHCP server to disabled using the list. Click Apply. In the example shown above, I've changed the IP to 192.168.2.252. Wait for all lights to turn green on the base station. 3. Open the BSMT again using the new IP. Use your Web browser and navigate to http://192.168.2.252 and enter your password if prompted. You will not be able to open the BSMT from the Microsoft Broadband Networking Utility (BNU). 4. Click Security, and then click Network Mode. 5. Click Bridging mode, and then click Apply. 6. Disconnect your computer from the MN-500 but do not disconnect the power from the MN-500 because it may take several minutes for the hardware to restart in access point (bridging) mode.
