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

1 Answer

No 'broadcast' light

Ever since I moved and started with a new ISP (Cox) my wireless router hasn't worked like it had with Mediacom. I don't know if the provider makes much difference. Anyway, I finally got it to work by shutting down my PC, resetting then unplugging the router, resetting the cable modem (back up battery for the phone makes it pointless to unplug) then put it all back together in reverse order, and all seemed to be working fine.

The person physically here and helping me thought it would be a good idea to change the security from WEP to one of the WP2's. so i did, but then when i saved settings, my router froze up on me like it had before. Now when I have it all hooked up as I should, all the lights flash for me properly EXCEPT the one that tells me it's sending a signal. I can't get into the host page or anything now. I've tried it with ethernet plugged in and with just the router connected to my PC.

It was working fine with the WEP setting and I just want to change it back and see if that makes any difference, but I can't get to the page. I've been digging through this site for the past several hours trying various 'tricks' and nothing's completely solved my problem so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Good Day,

1) Check if your router have the capability to broadcast b/g/n signal.

2) you try replacing your son's desktop wireless card compatible with your router.

3) you can call your ISP and request to change the router that can broadcast b/g/n signal.

God Bless.

My ISP is Mediacom and since I began using them I have had the same RCA / Thomson 425 Modem. This was years ago and during that time I have made the upgrade to "wireless network", 802.11g to...

Firstly it makes no difference if you have a wireless network on 802.11n unless all the devices on the network are using 802.11n adapters. This means if you have a router or a wifi phone working on basic 802.11g (55mbs data) the whole network will run at the speed of the slowest device.

Now about the Thomson modem DCM425 and the ISP service. The maximum speed Docsis 2.0 protocol can support is 38mbps. The maximum Docsis 3.0 offered in US is around 120mbs. The Max service offers about 20mps (see link) which means you are within the capacity of the cable modem.

Hope this helps.

Trying to Install a wireless router WRT54GS; ISP Cox Cable

I don't know what type of internet connection you have. If you have cable internet connection, you can copy the mac address of your modem to your router - that's what you call, cloning. If you have DSL connection, you can just obtain an IP Address from the modem to the router. If it's an Internet connection that is requires authentication, you can use the PPPoE type of connection. You can configure your router to any of the mentioned configuration above.

Hey buddy, this is a plug and play modem gateway and does not require drivers for its configuration. If this modem was provided to you by your ISP then please contact them for its configuration as these modems are ISP specific like Timewarner, comcast, cox. If not, then let me know so that I can assist you further.

Hooking up rounter to cox cable

-- is the router working fine before or is it a brand new router

you may try this and see if this help solve your problem. make sure your computer is directly connected to the router

Step 1: Shutdown the computer.
Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable.
Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds.
Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable.
Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable.
Step 6: Power on the computer on and configure the router settings
Step 7: test the Internet connection.

if this still didnot work, upgrade the firmware of your router


configuring the router settings will depends who is your provider. if your isp is dsl you need to configure your ISP username and password on the router. if your router is a cable no need to change any settings on the router. it should automatically work
