Try opening the Network Control Panel on the MacBook. Select the TCP/IP tab, then click Advanced. Note the list of IP address numbers. Click the "Renew DHCP Lease" button and see what changed. Most likely all of them did, in particular the "Internet Gateway" and "DNS server" addresses. The first is the connection between the D-Link router and your ISP, and the other addresses are for servers that translate your web browser URLs into the IP addresses for the web sites you want to see. The Gateway and DNS server addresses have to match those in the upstream router(s). The routers must have current IP addresses assigned by the routers upstream, and any client computer must have a current address assigned by the first route upstream. You can check into this by logging in to the webpages for your routers and examining the status reports.

Apparently one of the devices in the chain fails to obtain a new IP address when the D-Link router is powered on. I suspect it is the Belkin router. A computer with an expired DHCP lease will probably be using the Internet gateway IP address assigned to the D-Link router when it was on before (in a busy neighborhood, that address would have been re-assigned to some other household). The Windows system may be sending a request for DHCP renewal up the line, which triggers the Belkin router to ask for the same from the D-Link unit, but it may be ignoring the signal from the MacBook or not getting one.

If the MacBook successfully gets online with a manual Renew DHCP Lease request, obtain the owner's manual for your Belkin router (find the model number, then go to the Belkin support/downloads page for that model). See what settings are available to automate the DHCP renewal process.

SOURCE: macbook pro only laptop in house that drops wireless connection

This sounds like an Intermittent Wireless connection problem. This is caused by cordless phones with 2.4GHz frequency. What you can do is change the Wireless Channel of your router to a different frequency/channel like channel 11, 1 or 9. Also you can try to relocate the base of your cordless phone away from the router or to a different room. In addition, you can try positioning the router to higher places like on top of cabinet or mount it on the wall..

SOURCE: MacBook not connecting to DIR-655 Router

My solution was that I changed the wireless mode from "B,G and N" to just "B and G," and then it worked fine.

I would recommend purchasing a newer router that is more powerful. The Apple Airport Extreme is a fantastic router. If none of these choices work then you can either connect your Macbook via ethernet or move it closer to your router. here is the Apple Airport Extreme. http://store.apple.com/us/product/MC340LL/A/AirPort-Extreme?mco=MTY3ODQ5OTY

How to connect the wifi phone to the dlink router


Use an Ethernet cable to connect the network port on a computer (desktop/laptop/notebook) to one of the LAN ports on the router.
Start your computer's web-browser, and connect to the web-server "inside" the router.
Run the "Wireless Network Setup Wizard" to configure your wireless network, i.e., pick an SSID and a password.
Then, configure your telephone to connect to that SSID, and to use the password that you selected.

I have a macbook pro and I am having problem connecting wirelessly to a Belkin Wireless Router N. None of my roommates have problem connecting and I can connect wirelessly everywhere else on campus but not...


Most hotspots are using b/g protocol for the widest compatibility with other hardware. Your macbook pro may not be able to connect tot he Belkin router if it's only broadcasting the N protocol. First verify which protocol the Belkin router is using. If it's broadcasting N, try changing it to use b/g and see if you can connect. I seem to recall that the earlier macbooks needed an update to be N compatible.

Cannot connect my Mac Pro to the internet via my Belkin wireless


With the router powered on, use a small thin object to press and hold the reset button for exactly seven seconds. The router lights will flash and this will restore the router to factory default. Connect your computer to one of the routers lan ports with an etherent cable. Open your web browser and navigate to 192.168.2.1. This should show the router status page with the default settings.

This will make the router unsecured again, so be sure to go back into setup and reset your Wireless security. I suggest using WEP authentication, and using a 10 digit ph # for your key (that way its easy to remember).

Using just the VOIP part of a Belkin all in one router??


You will probably need to set it up differently, I do not know the belking router, but normally the VOIP functions only work on the wan port of these routers so you should make the connections as follows:

INET ---> (wan) DLINK (lan) -----> (wan) BELKIN (voip) --> Phone
|--------> Wired Computers
|--- ) ) ) Wi Fi computers

On the DLINK enable DHCP and set a fixed IP for the Belkin router, either by setting the belkin in an IP outside the DHCP pool or setting it from the DHCP server.

This configuration workd well with a DLINK and a Motorola (vonage) router I have.
