Question about D-Link AirPlus G DWL-G710 Wireless Range Extender

1 Answer

G710 and Vista

I set up the 710 to repeat the signal of a di 624. Works fine with my XP Pro laptops, but with the Vista Home Premium, there is no internet resolution. Vista will communicate with the LAN and the XP throught he 710.

Seems to be a DNS problem (???).

I will try to manually input the IP configuration on the Vista laptop to the DNS IP's instead of the gateway 192.168.0.1.

Any one have this problem or find a solution for it?

    I'm having a similar problem. I am trying to use a G710 to repeat my 2100AP access point. I can connect to the "lan", but can't connect to the internet. I have the WPA2 security set up on both devices. It seems that they are connected because I can manually connect directly to my Netgear router by typing the IP address in my browser... so they must be talking, but I can't get to the internet.

    The same problem occurs with the speedport W501V in connection with vista. All connections are shown as ok, both to lan and internet, however, no webpage can be opened. I tried everything, without any success.

G710 does not support WPA2 it will only repeat from a router running WEP

192.168.0.30 for DWL G710 does not respond


hi r_raiche

1. Take a regular ethernet cable and plug it into the ethernet port of your computer

2. Plug the other end into ethernet port of the DWL-710

3. On your computer (assuming you have Windows XP Pro with the NON-classic start menu), go to Start > My Network Places

4. On the top left under "Network Tasks" click on "View Network Connections"

5. Right click on "Local Area Connection" and then down to "Properties"

6. A pop-up window with 3 tabs should come up. Under the "General" tab, there is a list of icons with checkmarks next to them. Highlight the "Internet Protocol TCP/IP" on and click the "Properties" button underneath

7. Tick "Obtain an IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically"

8. Click on "OK" then "OK" again

9. Open up Firefox (or IE) and type 192.168.0.30 into the URL field

10. Type in the default username and password

WURE channel switching


Don't know what you mean by this comment. Both the router and the range extender must be setup to operate on the same FIXED channel, as well as the same SSID and encryption key. Extended Range is a totally separate option which is capable of taking advantage of specific features of specific chips in routers and range extenders. I would advise against using it.

Setup range extender


Access pointe bağlanmak için öncelikle bilgisayara elle ip adresi vermek zorundasınız daha sonra cihazı ethernet yoluyla bağlayarak ayarlayabilirsiniz.Ancak modeme bağlarsanız ip adresini ayarlamak gerekmez.Kolay gelsin.Good By

I can't get to http://192.168.0.30/


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.

Comm problem between range extender and BT home hub


make sure the SSID, channel & wireless key on router & all extenders are the same, also the default gateway on the extender has to be the IP address of the router.

the IP address must be different on the router & extender but use the same subnet mast. The extender has to have the gateway set as the IP address on the router.

Move the repeater directly next to the router, connect to the repeater with a laptop/desktop and enter the configuration utility, see if you are even able to establish a "signal" status. If not, you may have a defective product or extreme amounts of emi.
