If you are running Windows Home or Pro...I suggest doing a system restore to the day prior to the upload.
Your router should be back up and working..

Always make sure that the "update" you are doing, is for your system. There are updates out there now that include Windows Vista....downloading these instead of your version, maybe change your settings and render your peripherals useless..

Why not use a different network-card, since your current network-card does not work on multiple computers ??? Spend $15 to bypass the problem, once and for all.

D-link modem>Belkin 4 port router connected to Winxp pc and Vista pc the vista connects to broadband but the Winxp doesn't the network is ok


the DHCP packets arent' being understood by the xp computer.

Often manufacturers skimp on the router firmware, and bodge it up. (often seen in dlink and netgear.)

Have you tried flashing the router to the latest firmware?

If that doesn't improve it, either try cabled, or try forcing a static IP.

Hi.i'm having trouble connecting my dlink router to my internet.i ran the dlink software & the repair connection with no results.if i unhook the router i can connect to my isp.help


Can you get into the routers web page (typically 192.168.1.1)?
Did you try resetting it to the factory defaults? Go over the instructions, reset to factory defaults, and try setting it up manually without the disk. If you don't know how, ask someone to set it up for you.

It's also possible the router is bad. I had another router brand that was acting crazy. Turned out it was defective. I replaced it and since have had no problems.

try the following

1. check the linksys website for a possible update of the firmware..(get the specs on your router before updating the firmware.. if done wrong you may end up with a useless router)
2. also try to reset your linksys router to factory defaults..

Product 966, D-Link D524 Router.


It happens when you type wrong ip address and it automatically goes to google because google is the default search engine setted in your computer and the Ip address entered is wrong so it search for it and end up with some google search information

I hope you are not sure about your router Ip address - if you know how to find out the real ip address of the dlink router do it
and go to command prompt ping that ip address for reply.

Clarify me about your network structure - mostly default Ip address when you get it new is 192.168.1.1 - Try to reconfigure it

Are you able to get a log page from the router

I was told by a DLink tech that I need to upgrade my wireless router with FirmwareWVR-2310-RevisionA as I can't get the wireless connection He gave me the link but being a senior my hearing isn't all that...


I'm on the Dlink site now and have often used it for years in the past as I normally only buy Dlink products as they are my favorites. There is NO router designated WVR-2310 on the site, so I'm guessing that you are accidently misrepresenting the router model #. However I did find a WBR-2310 so I will temporarily assume ( dangerous ) that the WBR-2310 is what you really mean, but you should verify this by looking at your router again. I'm an old man too and blind in one eye and poor vision in the remaining eye.
Firmware updates for your model are located here
One thing that SHOULD be remembered tho is NEVER to update a firmware in a wireless mode of operation, only use a wired connection to created the updated firmware on your router. You never really mentioned what your exact issue is with the router so I can only give generic information concerning the firmware update process but you read all the small print included in the firmware download before proceeding with the update. But most important of all is make sure you have a strong internet connection through your router and that you are using a wired mode of operation, not a wireless mode of operation. Hope this has been of help and that I chose the correct model router for you.

Hi There Joecohn,

Definitely, the username and password for your PPPoE connection is correct since that it works perfectly with your Linksys router. If you are getting a WAN IP Address from the status or summary page of your D-link router then you can lower down the MTU size of your router to 1492. If it didn’t work, upgrade or reflash the firmware, reset it back to the factory default and reconfigure the router for PPPoE connection again.

If it will not obtain an IP address or even if it has a WAN IP but can’t go online then we can consider it as a hardware failure on the D-Link router. Have it replaced.

If you have more than one computer on your network, try disabling the firewalls on all computers and trying again. If this works, then you need to adjust your firewall settings to allow your network to function properly. If this does not work, you may have to log into your linksys router and check the wireless settings.

Let me know what happens.

Keep getting disconnected from the internet from the wireless router


It can sometimes be tricky solving wireless connectivity, but here's a few things you should try:

Reboot the router. I know, everyone says that, but it does help most of the time.

Update the driver on your wireless card. A lot of times, manufacturers find fault in theri devices and update the drivers to compensate and fix those problems.

Along with this, also try looking for new software/firmware updates for your router. it soudns scary at first, but normally there is an easy way to this built into the router software. simply go the manufacturer's web site and download the latest and greatest for your model. then follow the directions that usually are packaged with the driver file in a text file of some kind.

If that doesn't work, take a real good look at the properties on your wireless connection under "my netwrok places" and make sure evry setting matches exactly with those of the router, sometimes, a difference in these settings can cause instability in your connection too.

Finally, it could be that your wireless card and the router are just not compatible. some manufacturers build in different tollerence levels inside their products in order to give their own companion hardware a slight edge in compatibility. call it marketing: I call it mean-spirited, but the fact remains that it is done by some manufacturers and it means that you may find that your wireless card will never work with that router and may find yourself having to replce one or the other. dlink and some built in cards have this failing in common.

Hope that helps.
