Question about D-Link DI 514 Wireless Router (DI-514)
We have a D Link DSL 2740B router, and a desktop running Windows XP and a laptop running Windows 7 and a printer all in the wireless network. We subscribe to Talk Talk in London in the UK. Until saturday we had the wireless router and only the laptop was wirteless and all was well. On Saturday we added a wireless card to the desktop and reinstalled the printer as a wireless printer and since then our internet has come and gone, sometimes because it seems that connection has been impossible to the network and sometimes because despite a connection the browsers would not connect to any server. This comes and goes and is very frustrating. Has anyone any ideas? we have spoken to our internet provider Talk Talk who have really no suggestions. Apparently their service in the area is good. Our router is within a foot of the access point to the house.
The problem started after you added the additional devices. Now you probably have all of your devices using DHCP which means the router provides an IP Address for your devices. Change the devices to have a fixed ip address. You may have to check the router for the default internal ip address, but it is probably 192.168.1.1 as the gateway. With the PC and laptop go to the control panel, then network connections, right clip on the connection and select properties, then scoll down the window until you see tcp/ip connection, select properties from the tab options below and set the ip address of each machine to 192.168.1.10, 192.168.1.11 and 192.168.1.12. set the gateway to 192.168.1.1 and set the dns ip to 192.168.1.1. Now if you have a different gateway address, use that as applied above. Save the settings and retry your connections.
Here is way you are probably having problems, wireless networks will drop and reconnect more often than a cable connection. If you were using just a cable connection, there would be less of a problem. When DHCP is being used and a computer drops the connection, it could get a totally different ip assignment the next time (a matter of less than a second of time). When that happens the original connection is lost. By fixing the ip address to be static, any time you reconnect via wireless, it uses exactly the same address, thus maintaining the connection.
Try it out and leave feedback if it works for you, otherwise send me the results of the test.
