It can be the router config... or the WIFI dongle/card, if it is the router config, turn on DMZ in your router config if it is your wifi card follow these directions: go to Start > Control panel > network connections > right click on your network connection and then click on properties > a window will open, you'll see the name of the wifi adapter you have click on the "Configure" button right next to the network adapter's name > click on the advanced options tab then through all your advanced options until you find power saving mode than change it to constantly awake mode or CAM, see if it fixes your problem. Have a nice day

    I'm not a Mac Hacker, but I believe you can tweak your router then, Procedure is simple, get to your web browser and type in the address bar this:, your router will ask for an username and a password, log in using the username and password you set up for it and go to DMZ, turn on DMZ settings and give it any ip in the range of ips you have in your DHCP server, this will open the ports any program needs when needed, maybe this procedure can help you, I also found this software maybe it suits your needs

D-Link Dir 600 Wireless disconnects

Sounds like you have a bad device. Can you return it? Is it under warranty? You have changed cables, check pins in the DLink connector for bent pins? etc. I use a little vaseline on the copper to prevent oxidation, sounds weird, I know, but it works. I live it a humid climate. Try a Contact Spray for electronics, it's a life saver.

Dlink dir 300 internet problem

First you have to make sure that you connected it correctly. the cable coming out of the modem should be connected to the single port (Internet port) at the right when facing the back of the router.

All computers that are wired through it should be able to access the internet. if one of your computers cannot access the internet you may want to check the IP address that you are getting. (go to a command prompt and type ipconfig).

If you are connecting a wireless computer check the wireless security setting which you can find at the configuration (setup) page of the router. to access the configuration page check the owner's manual.

I am having issues using the Video Instant Messenger component of AOL AIM trnsp.gif Answer taken from

Why Am I Having Problems Getting Video IM to Work on My Computer?
You may need an upgraded Windows XP component to operate in conjunction with Video IM.
To use Video IM users may need an updated component of the Windows XP Operating System. Here’s how to upgrade for use with Video IM:
1.First, completely sign out of AIM and any other programs running on your computer.
2. Click here to download the file for use together with Video IM.
3. When the download is complete, click Open or Run the program from its current location.
4. Follow the instructions on screen to install.
5. When installation is complete the program will be loaded but invisible and running in the background.
6. Restart your computer and launch AIM to enjoy Video IM.

You’re behind a firewall built into most home networks or broadband routers …
Although you may not realize it, firewall software may be used by your Internet Service Provider, your company, your Windows XP operating system or even in the hardware in your home that connects you to the Internet. If you have a home network or broadband router, there is likely a firewall built into it.
If either you, or the person you want to Video IM with are behind a firewall and are having problems getting Video IM to operate, work with your Internet Service Provider, your company’s system administrator or modify your firewall software yourself to open ports 1024 through 5000.
Once these ports are opened, Video IM should work if no other issues exist.

It could be your router …
Routers are devices used by your Internet Service Provider, or installed in your home network, to distribute Internet connections. A wide variety of routers will work with Video IM. Below is a list of popular routers that work with Video IM in their default configuration.
ActionTec Geu404000-01
D-Link DI-704P
Linksys WRT54G
Linksys BEFSR41
Linksys BEFSX41
NetGear RP614
NetGear WGR614
Most other routers will also work, however, if yours does not, please report it here.
Also, be sure to follow the instructions above to install components to work with Video IM.
Remember, both you and the person you want to Video IM with may need to ensure your routers are not blocking Video IM.
