Yes. Simply use a standard RJ45 connection Catagory (cat) 5 or cat6 cable. Be sure not to use the port next to the "uplink" port if in use as the uplink needs that port for the connection.

The standard ip address for the router is: http://192.168.1.1
from there you can setup the router with ip information, dhcp server function, etc.

For compatibility with earlier standards, the 802.11g also uses the frequency range of 2.4 GHz. The latest standard is also supporting Ethernet networking exclusively.<br /> Wireless broadband routers 802.11g technologies have higher speed. It is capable of quicker file sharing and printing than the older 802.11b wireless broadband router. The 802.11g router has more computer capacity than the other router technology.

Cant connect to any online game servers


Check your router (usually connected between your cable or DSL modem and your PC) and also your software firewall(s). Windows has its own built in firewall, and both Windows and Macintosh have security software's that may have come with your computer, or you might have purchased them afterwards that could also contain a firewall.

Low signal strength 10 meters away from the router using my dell


If your trouble is with several computers in your network, the issue is most likely with the router or networking equipment (configuration or hardware trouble), if it is a single computer it may be a software, virus or configuration issue, or possibly a bad wireless radio card. We have a computer repair shop called 600Monkeys in West Des Moines Iowa (http://600monkeys.com) and commonly see issues like this. My estimate is: if this is the only computer with trouble, and the operating system is running well, it has a bad networking adapter.

Print server software for mac


There are no plans to have Macintosh software for the print server feature of our routers. If you can perform port-based printing (OSX), you do not need printer software. Just print to the IP of the router (default is 192.168.0.1) and the Print Queue Name is lp (a lower case "L" and a lower case "P"). Use the current drivers for your printer. In some cases you made need postscript drivers for your printer from the manufacturer (if available). This feature is not supported by D-Link, as per packaging. Please visit http://gimp-print.sourceforge.net/MacOSX.php3 for 3rd party drivers that may work with your D-Link router. D-Link does not and will not support these drivers. Use at your own risk. Do not keep the product in anticipation of Macintosh compatibility. Return it to your reseller.
