Question about D-Link RangeBooster G WBR-2310 Wireless Router (WBR2310)

2 Answers

Hi, the following started to happen: 1. Our wireless Internet recently started to develop problems. The signal drops and using the "View wireless network', our secured home network will not show up. After a minute or so, it will be available again and we can connect, but then it drops again, over and over. 2. On the router itself, a D-Link WBR 2310, the non-power lights are flashing. 3. On computer, an IP conflict is reported with a pop up Window. The last item may or not be related to our Wireless signal problem. I just started it noticing recently. Our Wireless worked fine for 2 years, but in the last week we have developed these problems.

It sounds like you have a problem with a conflicting Wireless signal in your area.

This is caused by another wireless network close by that is on the same channel (or within 5 channels higher or lower) than yours that is causing interference.

You can check this by performing the following:
1. check your wireless network at the moment and see if you can see what the channel number is that is being used at the moment, make a note of this.
2. switch your router off (making sure that any settings that you may have changed on the router have been saved first!).
3. browse for any wireless networks that are in the area, and make a note of the channel numbers that these wireless networks are on. You should find that there is another network on the same, or close to the same, channel number that your wireless network is on.
4. power on your wireless router.
5. whilst the router is coming back on, take a look at the networks that you have found and see if there is a channel that is available that is 5 different from everyone else (ie, if there is a network on channel 1, you will be looking to use channel 6, if there is one on 7 use channel 2, etc). If there is no completely clear channel you may need to try and just look at the strongest signals for a 'free' channel.
6. once your wireless router is back up, log on to the configuration page (may be best to use a wired connection if possible, to avoid disconnections mid-configuration)
7. find the wireless configuration page, and set the channel number to the one worked out in step 5
8. retry the wireless network and see if you get better performance and a more stable connection

Wireless networks are a bit picky when it comes to interference, and they ideally need 5 channels of separation, otherwise the carrier signals can interfere with each other. But with not being able to control your neighbours networks, it can be difficult to get a completely clear channel :)

The other thing to check for is if you have had a change around in the house, and perhaps bought a new appliance (such as baby monitor or cordless phones or a fish tank), as some items can throw out interference to conflict with wireless networks.

Hope that this information is of some assistance to you!

Testimonial: "Yes, I tried several things, but chaning the channel and clicking on EXTENDED RANGE in the wireless setttings really helped."

Is your router locked?

you may have an ip conflict because someone is stealing your signal....

Also have you tried just leaving it unplugged for a few hours, There is also a reset button on most routers on the back a small hole with a tiny button.

Holding it usually causes the router to factory restore itself...

    Thanks for your input. I should have said I tried re-setting already but that didn't seem to work. Maybe will unplug and try again. Thank you for taking the time to answer this though.

Wireless internet connection drops frequently


Things That Affect Wireless Router Signals
1. Many wireless routers are using the same wireless channel. Many manufacturers choose channel 6 as the default. Change to another channel. 2. Analogue video senders used to send audio and video to other TVs in the home. 3. Microwave ovens emit interference in the 2.4GHz band. 4. Wireless speakers and console controllers can cause interference with the wireless router. 5. Bluetooth devices, newer Bluetooth devices can jump to different frequencies if there is a connection problem. 6. Power cables located near the wireless router can cause dropouts and speed reduction. 7. Fish tanks will cause massive Wi-Fi shadow on the other side of the tank from the wireless router. 8. Depending upon the location of large mirrors will reflect wireless signal away your computer. 9. Building materials will block wireless signals such as plasterboards with metal foil, reinforced concrete walls and floors. Also objects near the wireless router such as metal filing cabinets and other electrical appliances. 10. Blinking Christmas lights can reduce Wi-Fi performance by 25% when it is close to the wireless router.

Seems that the wireless signal is too weak, or may be you are connecting to a wireless network of a neighbor instead of your own. Check which wireless network is the preferred one & make sure it is yours.

Renew your ip address. The computer will automatically regenerate another one so that the two pc don't conflict.

You can can reset your IP address by :
1. Opening the Windows Command Prompt located in Start -> Accessories or
Start -> Run -> Type in either "cmd" or "cmd.exe" (without the quotes)
2. Type in "ipconfig /release" (without the quotes)
3. After releasing the IP, typie in "ipconfig /renew" (without the quotes)
If the instructions above doesn't work, you can set a manual IP address by :
1. Going to Network and Dial Up Connections in the Start -> Control Pannel
2. Going to your local area connection
3. Click "Properties"
4. Click "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)"
5. Then again click "Properties"
6. Selecting the "Use the Following IP Address"
7. Entering an IP address available on your network

Netgear WGR614 v6 router drops connection


Hi, what ISP are you using (aol,tiscali...?), and how are you connecting to the router? Wired or wireless? I had similar problems with mine, it wouldn't connect or would drop connection, or loose all the settings. I updated the firmware to the latest from here:- 
http://kbserver.netgear.com/products/WGR614v6.asp

Be sure this is the correct model as firmware differes from model to model.
Then I had to manually configure my ISP settings etc. Or you may have software from your ISP which configures for you.
Hope this helps.

Internet continually dropping out


There are many things that can be causing this. Like; wired/wireless, if wireless how far away from your access point or router is your pc or you may need another access point for a stronger signal. Also try moving your pc when you loose your signal. Just a little repositioning might grab a stronger signal. Your modem: Try unplugging it when this happens wait for about 1 min then plug back in. You may be in an area that's causes "bottle necking" a term used for clogged internet signals. This usually happens during weekends and peak internet usage hours. This would be a job for your internet provider. There is also a reset on your modem. If unplugging doesn't do it after all the lights have come back on and the internet light stops blinking, look for a very small hole somewhere on your modem (not router). Get an object small enough to fit into it and strong enough to add pressure. Tooth picks won't work! Now push it in (while turned on) and hold it until all the lights go off. It may seem like it takes forever, just be patient. Once all the lights go out let go of the reset; wait again for all the lights to come back on & internet light to stop blinking.
If still same problem could possibly be your ethernet/wireless card going bad but they just kind of either work or they don't.
Start keeping tract of the times/days this happens and how long your internet is down. I'd do this for 1-2 days then call your internet provider. Theres one catch with them tho, they can't see your problem or diagnose it on their end unless your down at the time you call them. You may just need another modem. But keep on them if you come to this step. They like to say "ok your good now - bye" and then you'll have the same problem again. If this happens demand a new modem. It's free...

Trouble with Tuner 2


From experience, I suspect that the dish has lost it's optimum "focus" on the satellites, and your signal has dropped. In your case, tuner #2 just happens to need a little more signal than tuner #1 - and that's revealing the root problem.

If you can have a second person handy, use the signal meter function and view the signal. Then one person should move the dish a bit (likely upward a hair). If the signal goes up with just the slight movement of the still tight dish, that's the problem.

If so, it's time to align the dish.
