    Initial problem: I have a DELL inspiron 1545 with windows vista home premium. I also have a D-Link wireless router, model: WBR-1310. I can access the internet with a high speed cable-modem (Comcast). When I connect to the router, and I am asked for the security key password, I can’t remember the password. What, if anything can I do?

    ==========================================

    Solution1 : Hi.

    If you are accessing to the router with a wireless computer, and you do not have the network key, then you will need to connect a wire to the router and use the browser to change router settings in control panel.

    If instead you are already trying to access router control panel, and you have connected using an ethernet cable from router to computer, and when you enter router IP in the browser you are asked for a password, then you need to reset the router.

    Default user ID is admin Default password is blank

    To reset the router, hold down the pinhole button at the back of the router for about ten seconds. If that is not enough, hold down the pin hole, while at the same time you connect back router power cord. Start holding with router not connected.

    After resetting you will need to setup the router for your broadband.

    To setup open Internet Explorer, type in router IP (Default is 192.168.0.1), and type user :Admin with no password. When you get the control panel , enter the details given by your broadband provider. If you have lost them call the broadband support number.
    ==============================================================
    My response:
    I received your solution, and I think I am at a more basic level than you think.



    1. I can press the router reset button (in the small pinhole) for 10 seconds. How do I know if it has been reset successfully and should the power to the router be disconnected when I reset? If not successful, how do I connect back router power cord while I am holding down the pinhole?

    2. Then, should I have the pc connected to the browser (Internet Explorer) via the cable modem? Also, should I connect a wire to the router? If so, how do I do that, Maybe I need a cable from the router to the PC. Do I place the cable in the WAN or one of the LAN connections in the router, and in the pc do I connect to the usb or Ethernet connection?

    3. once I do all that, where do I type in the router ip(192.168.0.1), and where do I type in the default id and password?

    4. do I then open up the control panel and what details do I enter given by my broadband provider? By the way, is my broadband provider Comcast (my cable modem and high speed internet provider)?



    Thanks,

    GENE9

    With my DELL inspiron 1545 with windows vista home premium, and have a D-Link wireless router, model: WBR-1310. I can access the internet with a high speed cable-modem (Comcast). When I connect with the router, I can not access the Internet. The PC says the dlink is connected and states the following;

    name: dlink; signal strength: excellent; security type: unsecured; radio type: 802.11g; ssid: dlink. It also says currently connected to dlink access: local only, unidentified network access: local only. What should I do to connect to the internet with my wireless?

Hello and thank you for using Fixya's services.

To reset the modem, be sure to have the software handy. If you do not have the cd-rom, you can download the software free of charge from the manufacturer's website.

On the back of the modem is a small pin hole. Press in the button using a pen or paper clip for 15 minutes. You will see the front lights blink as you do this.

Connect the modem directly to one computer and run the installation disk or downloaded software. Follow the wizard to successfully configure the modem.

This will fix any and all problems and save you troubleshooting time.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

    1. The router will need to be plugged into the wall when you reset. You can tell that it is being reset as it will blink a couple of times.

    2. Once you reset the dlink, plug the blue cable (ethernet), that looks like a big phone cord, in the back of the router. The Ethernet cable will be plugged into the first plug on the back of the router (lonely plug, the one that stands away from the other four) and straight to the computer. In the address bar (where you would usually type in www.website.com) you type in the 192.168.1.1. So, the modem (provided by your internet company) will be connected to the router and the router to the computer (two Ethernet cables needed for this setup). You should not be using Ethernet and USB. It's either or. So I recommend the Ethernet and put the USB aside (don't need it).

    3. If your internet provider has given you a password or username (DSL requires this) then you can enter it when setting up the router with the installation cd. If you have cable, usually it doesn't require a username and password.

    The reason you are getting local access only to the wireless is because the password was incorrect. Resetting the router will fix this.

Type admin for username and also for the password. Let me know how this goes. This is default for the router.
Or your other option is to look at the back of the router. There is a pin sized hole/button. Press this for 3 seconds and release. It will reset the router..

Installation problem: D-link wireless router WBR-1310


  1. Push the RESET button on the back.
  2. Plug in the computer only into one of the 4 blue ports (and the router power plug of course).
  3. Give it a minute or two.
  4. Open a browser on your PC, type 192.168.0.1 in the address bar. No www or anything should be there.
  5. You should be able to access the router menu from this address. If this doesn't work, the default address might be listed on the bottom, along with the username and password
  6. If the above steps are successful you should be able to access the internet when you plug in your cable/DSL modem into the WAN port.
From another PC the manual can be downloaded from here:
ftp://ftp.dlink.com/Gateway/wbr1310/Manual/wbr1310_manual_110.zip
Hope this helps.

I have installed my WBR-1310 wireless G Router, but can not get my Dell inspiron labtop to connect to the internet.


Have you connected to the WBR-1310with an ethernet cable and typed http://192.168.1.1 in your browser to setup the wireless SSID? If so, does your Dell show a wireless network available and is the Dell wireless card turned on?

Wireless Home network will not stay connected to internet


So you have a DSL modem connected to a router connected to a wireless router connected to both your computers? Sounds like you need to just get a wireless modem and throw all the routers away.

Cannot connect to the internet


open internet explorer, go to tools, internet options, then the connections tab and make sure ' never dial a connection' is ticked, assuming you had a dial up connection before using the router on this pc or if you briefly used it.

CANNOT CONNECT TO INTERNET


in the installation manual you have a url you can type in...its something like 192.428.111.1...ect about 10-12 numbers...type this number in the internet browser search window. this will tell you first if you have access to the internet. you should get the settings windows for your router. there you can make adjustments as needed for your rounter unit.once confirmed.

if you are having access to the wireless network you set up the password you set in is obviously incorrect when it was set up. first check the light on the front of the wireless router it should have various light on ..such as power,,usb...dsl...and internet..with the internet light flashing... as a precaution please do a repair connection on your internet access point on the computer ur using..right click the wireless icon at the bottom of your screen if ur using xp..sometimes this repair will be just enough to clear up issues.and allow access.

if this continues...you may need to reinstall the unit...there is generally a reset button (very small) on the underside of ur wireless unit and take the appropriate steps..

Cannot access the WBR-1310 webpage


if you are wireless, after a reset you need to connect with the router using an RJ45 lan connector lead. Reboot your notebook, while connect to router and then type in the default address for the set up page normally 192.168.0.1
