When I attempt to connect to the DWL-G730AP using IE6 and the 192.168.0.30 IP nothing happens. If I do a status on it and key the repair button, it yields 169.254.188.0 with a submask of 255.255.0.0 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.

Re: G730AP does not have correct IP
The address 169.254.xxx.xxx 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:

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": 192.168.0.2, netmask 255.255.255.0, gateway 192.168.0.30, 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 192.168.0.30 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.
check your IP address and see if the computer you are using is on the
same subnet. your IP must be 192.168.0.xx where xx is any number. if
you get a different IP address, use a static IP address between
192.168.0.31 to 192.168.0.40
how to check IP: click Start - Control Panel - Network Connections - right click Local Area Connections - click Status - Details.
how to use static IP: click
Start - Control Panel - Network Connections - right click Local Area
Connections - click Status - Properties - TCP/IP - choose Static - use
any IP address in the range above.
click apply and try to access your repeater again. I am assuming that you have given the correct IP of your repeater.
Every time I try to begin the configuration for my DWL-G730AP router, when I type the http://192.168.0.30/ in the URL, Gateway and Google tell me they can't find this address and instead give me a list of suggested web pages. My D-Link router instructions say to type the above in...
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.
