Question about D-Link AirPlus G Wireless Range Extender DWL-G710 (dwlg710) Repeater

5 Answers

I can't get to

Every time I try to begin the configuration for my DWL-G730AP router, when I type the in the URL, Gateway and Google tell me they can't find this address and instead give me a list of suggested web pages. My D-Link router instructions say to type the above in the URL and then a page showing where I can put in my username and Password will come up. But, this doesn't happen--the Gateway/Google page comes up instead. Any help would be appreciated. I have a Gateway PC and Windows Vista.

    OK, let's start from scratch. I have a wireless home network by means of a DI-624+ Extreme G and a wireless USB adapter for my desktop. I bought the DWL-G710 to extend the wireless range, this is to get better and faster connectivity accross the different rooms.

    I hoped that two D-Link products will work just plug and play, but to my surprise it did not.

    I can't still connect to; the ping would not get response and the ipconfig would return "media disconnected" with two different LAN cables.

    Playing around I could get through the IP address above and complete the Setup Wizzard but with the USB adapter connected to the same desktop. The ping and ipconfig will work fine as well. All I conclude from this test is that the new hardware seems to be working.

    I have a WEP encryption set up with the DI, would this be a problem to set up the range extender? Or may be a problem related to W.Vista?

    I guess I need a complete procedure to set it up. The basic instructions D-Link kit did not help too much.

    Thanks for you help guys. Regards,

    I have the exact same setup and same problem. I am using my laptop with a direct cable to hookup to the range extender. If I give my laptop a static ip address via Network Places right click properties then right click properties on the LAN connection and TCP/IP Properties, set Static IP, then set static IP to, subnet mask and default gateway of, then , I CAN then "see" the range extender at I can even run the setup wizard. I can even see the range extender appear when I scan for available networks. (It has the same channel, SSID and encryption as the router). Then I can even connect, BUT I cannot get out on the internet. I have wasted about 4 hours on this setup already. I bought this model specifically because I already had a DI-624 router and I wanted to make sure it works. Tech support is totally useless. My question: Should the default gateway on the extender be set to itself ( or to the routher ( Thanks

I did this with Windows 7 but the same solution applies to Vista and XP.
1. Connect the Range Extender (mine happens to be the DWL-G710) by cable to your computer. 2. Open the Network and Sharing Center. 3. Click on the connection, then on "Properties" 4. From the list select "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)" and click properties. 5. Select "Use the following IP address" 6. Use the following settings: IP Address: Subnet mask: Default gateway: 7. Click OK then Close. Give the computer a few seconds to re-establish the connection. 8. Go back to your browser and type again. It will work. 9. Don't forget to go back once you're finished and change the setting back to "Obtain IP address automatically."
Also, it's a bad idea to use WEP encryption as any password you would use is easily crackable within a few minutes using the Aircrack suite of hacking tools in Linux. Even someone using Windows can use a live Linux distribution such as BackTrack which is bootable from a CD to hack in and get your password. Once they have it they're in and use your internet connection.
Use WPA-PSK encyption or better and choose a password that can't be found in any dictionary or on the web. It can't be hacked as of yet.

I am running the 624 with the 710 and I can see the 710 from over 300ft away outside. Make sure everything is indentical in the setup. Mine won't work well on WPA, but works well with WEP. Maybe start out open then make the changes one at a time. I had to turn of some of the Internet protection from McAfee to get everything setup. Good luck

I had what may may be a similar issue, in that I could get into the wizard, but no changes were saved. I eventually found that if I turned off Windows firewall, I was able to successfully save changes

I assume you are already configure the DWL-G730AP router into

First try to ping first. go to ms dos prompt, you can go to start and choose run then type cmd (enter).

in ms dos prompt type ping

if request time out.

check your ip first, type this ipconfig

make sure that your ip in the same class like 192.168.0.X

for example your ip address then you must be able to reach it must be reply state in ping.

if you ip address in the same class but doesn't reply, then you must check your LAN Cable, try to replace with the new one.

hope this helps you.

    I'm not sure, but from what i read, it seems your DWL-G710 not compatible with DI-624+ Extreme G. I suggest you to ask first the D-Link technical support to make sure it's compatible or not compatible.

    Please read at this dlink site

    download this document

    and download this too

    be care full when you want to purchase something, make sure you read first the manual and check the compatibility with other current device.

This is the correct address to log on to your router. so i dont know why you are having problems.
Try to reset your router (press and hold the reset button for 30 seconds) and then follow the guide i found here, give the page a minute to load, it is fully illustrated with pictures, so is a little slow to load up

Try to configure your new router and you have to reconfigure the Range extender to tally with the new router. The IP Address that the range extender should have should depend on the DHCP server of your router that provides the IP Address.

Are you using the correct cable type. If it is a CAT5 type cable it could be you are using a patch cable rather than a straight through type or vise versa.
