I did as you suggested,went to DLINK and upgraded my firmware. It didn't change a thing. After I downloaded the firmware I went to IE and entered the IP address of the Router. What came up was another page of Google sites to solve my problem. What now?

It happens when you type wrong ip address and it automatically goes to google because google is the default search engine setted in your computer and the Ip address entered is wrong so it search for it and end up with some google search information

I hope you are not sure about your router Ip address - if you know how to find out the real ip address of the dlink router do it
and go to command prompt ping that ip address for reply.

Clarify me about your network structure - mostly default Ip address when you get it new is 192.168.1.1 - Try to reconfigure it

Are you able to get a log page from the router

D-link modem>Belkin 4 port router connected to Winxp pc and Vista pc the vista connects to broadband but the Winxp doesn't the network is ok


the DHCP packets arent' being understood by the xp computer.

Often manufacturers skimp on the router firmware, and bodge it up. (often seen in dlink and netgear.)

Have you tried flashing the router to the latest firmware?

If that doesn't improve it, either try cabled, or try forcing a static IP.

NetGear RangeMax WPN824 Wireless Router (WPN824NAR) Wireless connection drops in and out regularly but frequency of this is unpredictable duration is usually a few seconds. Works find on direct ethernet...


Upgrade the Firmware of the router :
First you should check the version of you WPN824 (v1,v2 or v3). If there are no Version after the model number, it should be a version 1. Download the Firmware of your router given the correct version at this link :

http://kbserver.netgear.com/products/WPN824.asp


This is assuming that other wireless laptops has the same problem onyour wireless router. If other Laptops works great on your wirelessrouter without dropping any wireless connection, then you shouldconsider upgrading the wireless adapter on you own laptop.

***(If you haven't tried connecting otherwireless laptop wirelessly to the netgear, then you should try it firstto be sure that the netgear is the problem)

Steps on how to upgrade Netgear firmware :

  1. Download the correct file depending on your location and unzip the file to a convenient place such as your desktop.
  2. Log in the router at http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 (or www.routerlogin.net ) (Which ever will work)
  3. Default User name : admin / password : password
  4. Click Maintenance > Router Upgrade.
  5. Click Browse and locate the file you just downloaded.

***Therouter reboots when the upgrade is complete.
***Tocheck that the upgrade was successful, log in to the router again at http://192.168.1.1and check the firmware version.

Limited or no connectivity to the internet. my setup: the telephone port is approx 30m from where i need internet access. Originally I had a dlink wireless router set up but was connected via cable, now...


On which port of the D-link router did you plug the WRT160N router?

Do this setup.

Disconnect the WRT160N from D-link.

Connect a computer to port 1 of the WRT160N. Access the setup page by typing 192.168.1.1 on the address bar. you may need to type in the username and password for WRT160N. on the setup page Change the LAN IP address from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.2.1. save the settings.

Connect a cable from port 1,2,3 or 4 of the D-link router to the Internet port of the WRT160N. turn off everything then turn them on starting from cable modem>D-link >WRT160N then computer.

You should be able to access the internet.

I was told by a DLink tech that I need to upgrade my wireless router with FirmwareWVR-2310-RevisionA as I can't get the wireless connection He gave me the link but being a senior my hearing isn't all that...


I'm on the Dlink site now and have often used it for years in the past as I normally only buy Dlink products as they are my favorites. There is NO router designated WVR-2310 on the site, so I'm guessing that you are accidently misrepresenting the router model #. However I did find a WBR-2310 so I will temporarily assume ( dangerous ) that the WBR-2310 is what you really mean, but you should verify this by looking at your router again. I'm an old man too and blind in one eye and poor vision in the remaining eye.
Firmware updates for your model are located here
One thing that SHOULD be remembered tho is NEVER to update a firmware in a wireless mode of operation, only use a wired connection to created the updated firmware on your router. You never really mentioned what your exact issue is with the router so I can only give generic information concerning the firmware update process but you read all the small print included in the firmware download before proceeding with the update. But most important of all is make sure you have a strong internet connection through your router and that you are using a wired mode of operation, not a wireless mode of operation. Hope this has been of help and that I chose the correct model router for you.

I have a dlink 614 router connected to a DSL modem. I cannnot connect to the internet after I set up a PPOe configuration and username/password combination but it still wil not connect to the...


Hi There Joecohn,

Definitely, the username and password for your PPPoE connection is correct since that it works perfectly with your Linksys router. If you are getting a WAN IP Address from the status or summary page of your D-link router then you can lower down the MTU size of your router to 1492. If it didn’t work, upgrade or reflash the firmware, reset it back to the factory default and reconfigure the router for PPPoE connection again.

If it will not obtain an IP address or even if it has a WAN IP but can’t go online then we can consider it as a hardware failure on the D-Link router. Have it replaced.

Hi ive tried to update the firmware on my dlink router and it stopped half way through and now i cant connect to it


If you are running Windows Home or Pro...I suggest doing a system restore to the day prior to the upload.
Your router should be back up and working..

Always make sure that the "update" you are doing, is for your system. There are updates out there now that include Windows Vista....downloading these instead of your version, maybe change your settings and render your peripherals useless..
