Question about D-Link AirPlus G Wireless Range Extender DWL-G710 (dwlg710) Repeater

4 Answers

Wireless repeater I am trying to setup a D-Link DWL-G710 with my 2Wire HW1700 wireless modem as a repeater. I am unable to access the D-Link setup page on the web with my 2Wire router to setup the D-Link. Because of this I can't even get started adding it as a repeater. Any help will be appreciated.

    I can get to the setup page of my router without any problem but I cannot get to the setup page for the D-Link DWL-G710. Evidently my router and it are not working together and I don't know where to go from here.

  • Burrow Phipps Jul 19, 2008

    Thanks. I will do this. I had not thought about that being the problem.

Hi,

Might it be that your problem exist because both the 2Wire HW1700 wireless modem and the D-Link DWL-G710 have their DHCP features enabled? During the setup, use static IP adds, disable the DHCP function of the HW1700, follow setup instruction/procedures of the DWL-G710.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    When you already access the setup page of the repeater input all the wireless settings of your 2Wire HW1700 wireless modem

    There's a possibility that your router is on a different IP range like 192.168.1.1 and your repeater is on 192.168.0.30 so follow the steps that I posted earlier so you can access the repeater setup page...



    Good luck.........

    Name- The Host Name is optional but may be required by some ISPs. The
    default host name is the device name of the Router and may be changed.



    MAC
    Address- The default MAC Address is set to the WAN’s physical interface
    MAC address on the Broadband Router. It is not recommended that you
    change the default MAC address unless required by your ISP.



    Clone
    MAC Address- The default MAC address is set to the WAN’s physical
    interface MAC address on the Broadband Router. You can use the “Clone
    MAC Address” button to copy the MAC address of the Ethernet Card
    installed by your ISP and replace the WAN MAC address with the MAC
    address of the router. It is not recommended that you change the
    default MAC address unless required by your ISP.

    Subnet Mask- ISP



    Gateway Address- Primary



    DNS Address- Secondary



    DNS
    Address- Choose Static IP Address if all WAN IP information is provided
    to you by your ISP. You will need to enter in the IP address, subnet
    mask, gateway address, and DNS address(es) provided to you by your ISP.
    Each IP address entered in the fields must be in the appropriate IP
    form, which are four octets separated by a dot (x.x.x.x). The Router
    will not accept the IP address if it is not in this format.



    IP Address- Input the public IP Address provided by your ISP.

    *** Please be sure to remove any existing PPPoE client software installed on your computers.



    Choose
    PPPoE (Point to Point Protocol over Ethernet) if your ISP uses a PPPoE
    connection. Your ISP will provide you with a username and password.
    This option is typically used for DSL services. Select Dynamic PPPoE to
    obtain an IP address automatically for your PPPoE connection. Select
    Static PPPoE to use a static IP address for your PPPoeE connection.



    PPPoE- Choose this option if your ISP uses PPPoE. (Most DSL users will select this option.)

    is maintained during inactivity. To diable this feature, enable
    Autoreconnect.



    MTU- Maximum Transmission Unit-1492 is the
    default setting-you may need to change the MTU for optimal performance
    with your specific ISP.



    Auto-reconnect- If enabled, the DI-524
    will automatically connect to your ISP after your system is restarted
    or if the PPPoE connection is dropped.



    Home > LAN



    LAN
    is short for Local Area Network. This is considered your internal
    network. These are the IP settings of the LAN interface for the DI-524.
    These settings may be referred to as Private settings. You may change
    the LAN IP address if needed. The LAN IP address is private to your
    internal network and cannot be seen on the Internet.



    IP Address- The IP address of the LAN interface. The default IP address is: 192.168.0.1.



    Subnet Mask- The subnet mask of the LAN interface. The default subnet mask is 255.255.255.0.



    Local Domain- This field is optional. Enter in the local domain name.



    Home > DHCP





    DHCP stands for Dynamic Host Control Protocol. The DI-524 has a built-in DHCP server.

    The DHCP Server will automatically assign an IP address to the computers on the LAN/

    private network. Be sure to set your computers to be DHCP clients by setting their TCP/

    IP settings to “Obtain an IP Address Automatically.” When you turn your computers on,

    they will automatically load the proper TCP/IP settings provided by the DI-524. The

    DHCP Server will automatically allocate an unused IP address from the IP address pool

    to the requesting computer. You must specify the starting and ending address of the IP

    address pool.



    DHCP Server- Select Enabled or Disabled. The default setting is Enabled.

    Starting

    IP Address- The starting IP address for the DHCP server’s IP assignment

    Ending

    IP Address- The ending IP address for the DHCP server’s IP assignment

    Lease Time- The length of time for the IP lease. Enter the Lease time. The

    default setting is one hour

Trouble logging into a D-Link DWL-G710 Wireless


Let me try to get the info straight:

Your computers IP address (manually configured): 192.168.1.4
D-Link Range Extender IP: 192.168.0.30

If this is correct, you will need to change your IP to something like:

192.168.0.X (make sure it's not in use on your network already)

otherwise you will not be able to connect to it with your comptuer.

Got a DWL-G710 wireless extender that will not


First I would try a reset, as this extender should would with your default settings of your network.
I would suggest just giving your router a reset. Here are the procedures for your particular router:
Reset Procedure
Step 1 Locate the reset pinhole on the back of the unit.

Step 2 With the unit powered on, press and hold the Reset button.

Step 3 Hold the Reset button for about 10 seconds.

Step 4 Release the Reset button.

Step 5 The unit will reboot. Allow 20-30 seconds before reconnecting.

Step 6 The device is now at factory defaults.

make sure to setup your wireless security again and make sure to set an admin password on your router after the restart.

DWL-G710 won't connect to 192.168.0.30


Here is a link to the manual for your DWL-G710.
D-Link manual on page 13 it lists the url entry should be
"http://192.168.0.30" This is a HTTP link not a HTTPS.
Also the address you typed in might be a typo. The IP address should be 192.168.0.30 not 192.168.0.30.

GOOD LUCK!!!!

Are you using the correct cable type. If it is a CAT5 type cable it could be you are using a patch cable rather than a straight through type or vise versa.

Move the repeater directly next to the router, connect to the repeater with a laptop/desktop and enter the configuration utility, see if you are even able to establish a "signal" status. If not, you may have a defective product or extreme amounts of emi.
