Question about D-Link AirPlus G Wireless Range Extender DWL-G710 (dwlg710) Repeater
Every time I try to begin the configuration for my DWL-G730AP router, when I type the http://192.168.0.30/ 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.
I bought a DWL-G710 and can't get through IP address 192.168.0.30
I'm using Vista.
My email is email@example.com
Thanks for any help
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: 192.168.0.130 Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0 Default gateway: 192.168.0.30 7. Click OK then Close. Give the computer a few seconds to re-establish the connection. 8. Go back to your browser and type 192.168.0.30 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 http://192.168.0.30/
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 192.168.0.30
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 192.168.0.50 then you must be able to reach 192.168.0.30. 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.
