Question about D-Link RangeBooster G WBR-2310 Wireless Router (WBR2310)
My D-link wbr 2310 router has never worked the way it should be. I always come to the point when would have to be reset by pressing and holding the reset sw in with a paper clip for 10 secs. Unfortunately I always come to realize that there is no switch, or the hole is blocked. So I called tech support couple of times, but they only tell me the same thing to type in 192.168.0.1 and do not understand that I tried this and all other possibilities a million times. The result always "The server at 192.168.0.1 is taking too long to respond." So last time I was so upset when tech support hung up the phone on me, so I went and opened the case and found the switch is factory blocked, (sealed) with black epoxy. Has anyone else found similar problem??? What should I do??? D-link tech support makes a habit out of hanging the phone up on me. The reason I think they do this intentionally, b/c for start they ask my phone number but they have never called me back so far. I am sick of it to keep calling them back and spend hours on the phone waiting.
To get the 192.168.0.1 address, plug in an ethernet cable into the LAN 1 Port, and another into the wan port. The wan port should lead to your main modem, LAn into the ethernet port on the back of the computer.

--Uninstall the d-link wizard software from your computer...if it actually installed.
--Shut down the computer and router...make sure they're connected together with the ethernet cable
--Turn on the router first.
--Turn on the computer
--Wait about 2 minutes after the computer starts up
--Go to the command prompt and type in the command "ipconfig". This will give you the computers ip address, subnet mask, and default gateway. To get to the command prompt, click on Start -- Run -- and then type "cmd" and click "Ok"
--The default gateway address should be the address of your router...typically it would be 192.168.0.1...but this will tell you if it's something else.
--If the ip address listed after the ipconfig command is blank or begins with 169.... then your computer is probably not talking to the router...the router or network cable may be defective.
--If the default gateway address is something other than 192.168.0.1 ...try that address in Internet Explorer to see if the router will respond properly. If the router responds, you can configure it directly without using the wizard software. Your D-link documentation (on disc?) will guide you through the manual setup procedure...sometimes referred to as the "alternative" procedure.
--Good luck...and I hope this helps!
