Question about D-Link DI-604 4-Port Cable/DSL Router (DI-604) Broadband (di-604 (dont quote)) Bridge

1 Answer

Windows messenger doesn't sign in with D-Link 604+ router.

Windows messenger does not sign in when i am at home, but does when I am anywhere else (using same laptop). My sister has the same problem as me with her laptop. So i am assuming this is to do with the router disallowing the connection.
I can sign in to just not messenger.
When i click sign in, it attempts to for a minute or so and then comes up with error code 81000306. Which basically means it can't connect.
I have checked UPnP settings on router, which are set to 'allow'.
i am using Vista32, though i had this problem on my previous laptop too, which was using XP.

Thanks for any help,

    I'm pretty sure that it is the router blocking msn, though I have looked through my router settings and cannot find anywhere that blocked applications might be listed. On the 'Advanced filtering and firewall' tab there are no items listed as blocked or allowed. It looks like the firewall might already be disabled but I'm unsure how exactly to check.
    Thanks, Gillian

A simple solution would be disabling the firewall on the router and use your windows firewall. Your router might be blocking msn messager. Another solution which is harder under application on a router. Most routers have you can set that program to aloud on the Internet.

    Try pluging your computer directly to the modem to see if it works. if that does work try updating the firmware on the router, or buy a new one. I suggest linksys

I have D-link cable router(DI 604)..i want to

Before using these files, make sure you have the E Revision of that router, you can check by looking on the sticker that contains all the model information like serial, model number.

Be careful while doing a firmware upgrade, very easy to brick your router. Bricking refers to making the router no more useful than an expensive paper weight.

D-Link DI-604 Router can be use in Wireless Broadband?

You can use any wireless access point. If you would like to stay with Dlink, you could try the DWL-2100AP. You would just need to plug it in to an open port on your router.

Zipit Wireless Messenger device

Zipit only supports an open authentication and a long preamble. Follow the steps below to setup your router. Note: If you are using WEP encryption, your network will be less secure when using an Open Authentication. You must also set your wireless clients to an Open Authentication (or Auto). Step 1 Open a web browser and enter the IP address of the router ( Step 2 Enter the username (admin) and your password (blank by default). Step 3 Click on Advanced and then click Performance on the left side. Step 4 Set the Preamble Type to Long and the Authentication to Open System. Click Apply to save your settings. Note: Depending on your firmware version, one or both of these options may be in a different location (Home > Wireless).
