I have my dlinkwbr-2310 router set up on my main pc, and I can connect to the internet. I then try to "add my laptop" to the network, via NETWORK Magic. I recieve an error message that says, "Router is broken, check ethernet cable." I have check and re-check to cables to the cable modem, to the router, and power down both units. Still I can not connect, " no wireless network in range" I look at my network connections and my LAN is not connected, and same with the wireless connection. "DISABLE" on both connections. I then "enable" both of them and I still can not connect. No network in range. What can I do? I want to return it, to the store, but I thought I would see if anyone has any suggestions...
Help Me I am about to pull my hair out.....

/... but if still you cannot access Internet try to power cycle the modem and the router.. follow these steps also
1. turn off bothe modem and router (just unplug the power cord) 2. after 1 minute, TURN ON first the modem, 3. after 1 minute again, TURN ON the router 4. after 1 minute try to access Internet
But if still no Internet connection, please look for the brand of your modem if it is speedstream 5100 or hugesnet or actiontec modem because those modem have the same IP address with your DLINK router and you need to change the IP address of your DLink then....

connect your computer to the router by an ethernet cable. Open Internet explorer or FIREFOX. Type the roiuter's default IP-address (if not known: its either 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.0 or 192.168.1.0... keep trying until you're answered and asked for the password to enter the router (either attached on the router, in the manual or try: user: admin password: admin or password: password. Whgen you're in you'll find many checkboxes you could fill oput or notr; Easyway: give your net a name (SSID), then choose the network access security (set it to wpa-psk), choose a password and enable DHCP (then the router does the rest). Disconnect, look if the computer sjhows reception of your netwoirk by displaying its name. then connect. You will be asked for the password you chose. Done.
So that means you are able to connect to the network with the ethernet cable only. Did yopu try to connect to the wireless network ? And if yes then what was the error message ? Click Here for more info about wireless connection. Pl. go through the web site you will get the answer !
Can you get a pc to connect to the internet? If you can, what IP address does HUGHES assign? If it is in the range of 192.168.0.X then change the DEFAULT GATEWAY address of the router to something like 192.168.10.1 (out of the box it should be set to 192.168.0.1)
Try to bypass the router and connect to your modem. Make sure you have Internet connection.
>If you have Internet connection. connect back your modem to the router.
>access the configuration page of your router.
>If you are given a specific IP by your Internet Service Provider, use that one.
>Login to your Dlink (type in on the address bar 192.168.0.1)
>Click Setup and Internet > Click on Manual Configure
>My Internet connection would be Static IP
>Type in your IP address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Primary and Alternate DNS
>Click on Save Setting on top.
but if your Internet Service Provider did not provide you those informations
> Under My Internet connection Type choose DYNAMIC IP
>Click on Clone Your PC MAC address
>Click on Save Settings
>If it ask you to reboot, click on Reboot.
>At the very top click on Status
>Under Status look for WAN
>Under WAN look for IP address
>If you have values beside from zero it means you have Internet connection otherwise, call your dlink manufacturer for manual configuring your router for Internet connection.
what is your connection to the dlink router look like, plz define. If you think your connection settings are fine then try resetting (do this if you do not care about the settings on the router) the router to default settings by depressing the small hole at the back of router for few seconds and it will refresh the router to default settings. Try connecting now to an ethernet cable and it should work if not then you have to go into router settings and match the ISP provided settings for modem to work in the router configuration. For going into the router make sure you have the manual for it: http://www.dlink.com/products/support.asp?pid=478&sec=0
select the model and download the manual as well as any firmware.
Hope that helped
