Question about D-Link DIR-625 (790069292637) Wireless Router
I just bought a new D-Link DIR-615 from bestbuy a few days ago. Since then, it never worked for me. I dont have problem with the connection, its perfectly 100% connected, but everytime i try to go to my browser (mozilla, i.e.) or anything that requires internet access, i cant. i just receive an error saying "THE SERVER CANNOT BE FOUND" how could it possibly be if its connected?
please experts, help me. im getting frustrated now. i tried everything i read in the internet, but still doesnt work. ive been working on this for a week and im actually thinking of returning this to best buy but i dont know whats wrong. please help me. thank you.
Ok let's try something for you. Going into your internet settings and clicking on tcp/ip properties, go ahead and write down the ip address assigned to you from your service provider. Once you have done that let's connect the modem into the port labeled WAN and then connect the computer to one of the other ports labeled 1-4. Now in an open internet explorer type 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 one of these will open a window asking for username and password. Both should be admin. Once we are in the web based settings of your router you need to check the status of your router. On that page you should see the same ip address that you wrote down. If not go ahead and release and renew and see if you finally get the ip address to be the same. Once that is established you can check your ip address on your computer by going to the internet options and checking it. It should be somewhere between 192.168.1.2 through 192.168.1.256 (those number depend on the parameters of your router i.e. how many wireless devices are able to connect to your computer.) Silly question but do you have a wireless adapter on the computer that you are trying to connect? Laptops (new) usually have them built in and they must be turned on. Desktops require installation of a wireless adapter. Router's are basically looked at by your service provider as a computer behind your modem, they assign an IP address to your modem, whether you connect a computer or a router to your modem your service don't see the difference, it still assigns. Once the router receives the ip address from your service provider, it then has the duty of assigning IP addresses to all of the devices you wish to connect to the internet and each other.
Hope this helps
