    Mine has worked properly with 54mbps and excellent signal for 10 months, despite it always has a 15 minutes delay before we get internet signal. Recently it stops working. I have excellent signal but no IP address. I have also changed the channel, reset and still can't get it working at the same plug again. However, when I plug it closer to the router, it works

    . But if I am close to the router, I don't need the plug. Would be grateful if someone can help.

My Epson Label printer is showing as not connected when its connected, when trying to set up or add as new printer.

What shows mac and ip address ? printer or pc ?
If the printer displays them, it means the printer in connected to router electrically.
Check subnet mask and gateway address.
Could be set wrong if the router is not on DHCP.

I guess the issue is in the ethernet components / settings.
Start isolation by elimination of the following
1. Computer -
2. Wifi connection to the router (or)
3. Patch cable connecting computer to the wall -
4. Router -
5. Patch cable connecting the printer to the wall -
6. Printer -

The LAN printer cannot connect to Computer (PC/Mac) directly unless you use a Cross over cable.

Connect network wireless

If you are using this as ethernet adapter, there definitely are IP addresses for each cable plugged into the router. Your MAC needs an IP address for the router to ROUTE the traffic to and from the internet. That's what Routers DO. Listen to your Support. Unplug all other devices from the router you connect to, then connect your adapter, and let the router assign an IP address to it. Then connect the rest of the devices one at a time, and see if that works. Make sure you plug the cable from the efibre to port #1 on the router, for highest priority of traffic.

Why is is there is no internet connection using d-link router? i already installed it. but the internet cable has an absolute connection. but when i connect it to the d-link router, it says, no internet...

hi my name is rui here is a guide in properly installing you router.
Before you begin any installation project, always make sure you have all of the parts that are supposed to be in the box. Normally, you will have the router, an installation disk, an Ethernet cable and a power adapter for the router. If anything is missing, be sure to return the router and get a replacement.

D-Link Router Setup- Courtesy D-Link
To begin, plug the router into the wall using the power adapter that came with it. You should see the D-link's Power LED turn on. You'll next want to make sure your cable or DSL modem is unplugged. Next, you will take the Ethernet cable that came with your D-Link router and plug that into the WAN port in the back of the unit. The other end of the cable will go directly to the modem's Ethernet port.
Power up both the cable or DSL modem and the router by plugging them back in. The modem may have a power button you need to press. Both units should have green lights. You should see the activity light on the modem flashing, and the WAN port on the router blinking, as well. This indicated activity and communication between the two. The modem is sending IP information to the router.
Depending on your computer and router, you may automatically be able to connect wirelessly to yuor new router to begin configuration. However, it may be necessary to patch into the router with a nearby computer via an Ethernet cable, which will plug into the LAN port. Whichever method you use, you'll need to reboot the computer.
To configure the D-Link router, you will next need to open a web browser and type
You should see the administration screen of the D-link router. Type in admin and leave the password filed blank.
A setup wizard should appear, prompting you to first change the router's password. Pick something you can remember.
You will next have to setup a time zone, you will then be given option as to how the router will handle IP address on the network. Most users will opt for the Dynamic option, which means the router will act as a DHCP server and supply all computers on the network with an IP address. If you select DHCP, you will need to Clone the IP address of the machine your ISP has already had contact with. For instance, if your ISP has been giving IP address to a certain computer before you put the router between them, you will need to clone the MAC address of that machine.
If you opted for Static IP Addresses, you will be brought to a screen that you will need to contact the ISP to get IP numbers from.
You will next need to setup the wireless connection. You will change the default SSID to match the workgroup ID of your LAN computers. The SSID and the Workgroup IDs must match. You will also be able to configure encryption at this point. If you have the ability to use the newer WPA encryption, you will want to use this. But we don't recommend setting up encryption until you confirm that all PCs are able to connect properly.
Lastly, you will be asked to reboot the router.

Cant login to set up because its in repeater mode

plug the repeater directly into your computer via ethernet lead. then click start and either click run(on Win XP) or type cmd in the search box (windows 7 & Vista). A black command prompt window will open. Now type ipconfig and find the default ip address that will be the ip address of the repeater login using your internet explorer and in the address bar type the ip address you found for default gateway

I type in my belkin ip adress in the box to go there and every time it will say faliure to connect to webpage

You could have the wrong address, try the following.

Open up the start menu, windows icon bottom left.

Vista/7: In the search bar, type in "cmd" and hit enter.

XP: Click on "run", then type in "cdm" and hit enter.

Now you should have a black screen with white lettering.

Type in "ipconfig" and hit enter. Look for the mention of "Dafault Gateway". The IP listed there should be the address of your router. Type that IP in your browser.

If the above did not work: Connect the computer directly to the router via ethernet cable. Reboot the router then the computer in that order. If you are already connected via ethernet cable, finish off the rest of the steps.

Then repeat the above with doing a ipconfig to find Default Gateway.

Need to change IP address for this or my Actiontec router

Take each thing seperately, in other words connect them directly to your computer first. Normally only 1 thing on a network should be a DHCP Server. But often a router will have a WAN port and and another router will be plugged into that. In that case the "another router" can run DHCP and will assign that to 1st router. 1st router now knows how to get to "another router" (2nd router). Which should allow you to get to it from 2nd router.

You can't talk to another /24 network if your computer is not on that /24 (aka Class C - The 1st three octets have to match. Unless ... there is a router inbetween your computer and "another /24 network" - that is on both /24 networks. In that latter case that router inbetween has the route to the "another /24 network" and can get you there.

To configure router gear where DHCP isn't working plug directly into it on ethernet switch or LAN port. Knowing it's IP Address you have to manually configure your computer (take it off of Automatically) to match the 1st three Octets (1st three of the dotted decimal numbers) and with a 4th octet in the range 1-254, because .255 is the broadcast address. Make sure you pick a 4th octet that is not in use to your best knowledge. Not the ip of the router, or anything else that you are aware of on the network range. I usually pick .10 because normally nothing is on the lower end of a dhcp range.

Anyway hooked up directly and manually IP address set, you should be able to go about changing IP Address of a router or access point. Keep in mind if you change it outside of the /24 subnet you and it WERE IN that you will lose access to it again. And will have to change your manually configured IP Address again. Or go back to automatic - if you have now also enable DHCP on that router device.

Note that for an access point (range extender?) it doesn't usually matter that it is on a seperate /24 network ... as it doesn't operate at Layer 3 (Network, IP Addresses and such) anyway. It just switches Ethernet / Wireless Ethernet frames anyway - all of the IP stuff just transparently passes through it. You probably get DHCP from your 1.1 router ... and talk the local network and Internet just fine. You could use the above MANUAL IP method whenever you want to look in the wireless access point. But unless it's broken / not working, you shouldn't have to. Access Points normally don't do any routing at the IP level and don't run DHCP - so all of that simply doesn't matter. Of course you might like it on the same network range (/24) as your other router for ease of maintenance. Just don't plug into a WAN port, plug into a Switch/LAN port on your main router. -

Is this a four port device? Please tell me what cables you have in the back of the router. There should be at least ....

1 x ADSL
1 x PSU (External power)

If you are connecting via wireless you do not need ethernet cables. If you want to use wired ethernet you would only need one CAT5 (or similar spec) between one of the spare ports on the router connected to the eth0 port on your PC/Laptop.

Fire up a DOS window on the PC and type "ipconfig -a". This should report that the PC has a valid IP address from the router in the format 192.168.0.x. If so you should be able to ping the router.


If *this* works then you should be able to put the IP address into a browser and get the admin screen up.

Can't connect WGPS606 wireless printer server to cable router

suggest plugging print server directly into p.c via blue ethernet cable during setup. Then run setup program and then pick an ip address that works with your router (in same network ip range of router) that does not clash . I would use print server as a switch if it is close to the router by ethernet cable between router and wireless print server. Then both should work
Wireless to server and other wired computers as well .
