G730AP does not have correct IP

When I attempt to connect to the DWL-G730AP using IE6 and the IP nothing happens. If I do a status on it and key the repair button, it yields with a submask of and nothing else. Attempting to use this IP to get into the unit yields nothing. What can be done. A hard reset has been attempted several times.

The address is a private network address. This means it is not connecting to anything.

Normally to do a proper hardware reset you will have to remove powere to the AP, press the reset button in (hold it there) then add power while still holding the reset button for 10 seconds after power is applied.

Do not put too much pressure on the reset button, it will break off inside.
After that, allow around 60 seconds and see if you can connect to it now. If not, then go into the properties page of your wireless card and set the IP info manually.

Set it to say:

Hope that helps. =)

I can't connect to my DWL G730 AP's webinterface. I already resetted it, but when I try to connect to through my Webbrowser, nothing happens. I already tried everything, I just can't...

Check that you are connecting with the right Ethernet cable to the AP, and verify that your PC is set to "Automatic IP Address".

Then from Start -> Run Command -> CMD.EXE type the command, "ipconfig" and press ENTER. The system will report the true current IP address for the LAN interface (not the Wireless one!). This should be in the same network of 192.168.0.something.

If it is not, try manually setting the IP address (right click on the LAN icon in the bottom right tray bar area, choose Status -> Properties -> scroll down to TCP/IP Protocol -> click Properties -> enter "Use the following IP address":, netmask, gateway, no DNS (it won't work anyway). Approve all changes and try again connecting.

If it still doesn't work, try pinging it from the CMD.EXE window (type the command PING and press ENTER). If it says, "timeout" and zero packets received, there's something wrong in the G730 itself (unless it's the cable). If it does work, your Internet setup is screwed, maybe you have a proxy configured or the antivirus is interfering, and you need to fix that condition before retrying.

Look for your IP Address. It should be (X can be any number up to 254.) Subnet should be Gateway IP should be 192.168.x.1.
If your IP address is, you are not connecting to your router.

Whatever the Gateway IP is, you should put in the addess bar of your IE, to get to your router.

Access web configuration

Note: Not all D-Link routers, print servers and access points have a web-based configuration utility. Please check the manual for your particular product. In particular, the DWL-900AP does not have a web utility while the DWL-900AP+ does have a web utility. You cannot gain web-based configuration utility functionality for the DWL-900AP by installing the DWL900AP+ utility. When entering the IP address of the D-Link device ( for example), you are not connecting to a website on the Internet or have to be connected to the Internet. The device has the utility built-in to a ROM chip in the device itself. Your computer must be on the same IP subnet to connect to the web-based utility. Make sure you have Java enabled and are using an updated web browser. We recommend the following: Internet Explorer 5.5 or higher Netscape 6 or higher Mozilla 1.2.1 (5.0) or higher Opera 6.0 or higher Safari 1.0 or higher (with Java 1.3.1 or higher) Camino 0.7 or higher Firefox 0.8 or higher -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Internet Explorer 6 (SP1) users: If you continue to receive Error 500 when trying to connect to the web-based configuration of your D-Link device, make sure you have the latest Windows update for Explorer 6. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If you have Windows XP or Server 2003, you must download the latest Java patch from Click here to download patch - To resolve difficulties accessing a D-Link model that has a web utility, please follow the steps below.

If you do not get a solid link light, try using a different cable or connect to a different port on the device if possible. If the computer is turned off, the link light may not be on. What type of cable should I be using? - Step 2 Disable any internet security software running on the computer. Software firewalls such as Zone Alarm, Black Ice, Sygate, Norton Personal Firewall, and Windows XP firewall may block access to the configuration pages. Check the help files included with your firewall software for more information on disabling or configuring it. Step 3 Configure your Internet settings. Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel. Double-click the Internet Options Icon. From the Security tab, click the button to restore the settings to their defaults. Click the Connection tab and set the dial-up option to Never Dial a Connection. Click the LAN Settings button. Nothing should be checked. Click OK. Go to the Advanced tab and click the button to restore these settings to their defaults. Click OK out to the desktop and close any open windows. Step 4 Check your IP address. Your computer must have an IP address in the same range of the device you are attempting to configure. Most D-Link devices use the 192.168.0.X range. Click here to find your IP Address on your computer - If you are attempting to configure a D-Link router, then make sure you take note of your computer´s Default Gateway IP address. The Default Gateway is the IP address of the D-Link router. By default, it should be If you are attempting to configure an Access Point or Print Server, you may need to configure your computer with a Static IP Address in the appropriate range. Click here to set a static IP address on your computer - Step 5 Access the web management. Open your web browser and enter the IP address of your D-Link device in the address bar.
