Question about D-Link DSL-G604T Wireless Router

1 Answer

Wireless printer causes loss of internet connection

I have a Dell laptop with wireless connection to the internet via a D-Link D604T wireless router.

I recently installed a Lexmark X4650 wireless printer.

I can print successfully (wireless) from my laptop to the printer - but when ever I print I lose connection to the internet and I have to reboot the router and the laptop to re-establish internet connection.

I called the Lexmark support desk and they said I need to change my router from dynamic to static - I don't know how to do this -

any suggestions greatly appreciated.

    I've rcently installed a Lexmark x4650 on my DSL-G604T based network, and every time I switch on the router I loose connectivity to the internet for new connections or sites, I have put in a static route to the ISP DNS servers, but this has only marginally imrpoved the situation (i.e. existing sites can continue to be browsed, even to new pages via hyperlinks, but attempts to browse a new site generate DNS failure errors).

    I may try peer to peer conectio, but I would prefer a permanent router based fix.

    I have a Dell Inspiron which uses a wireless connection to the internet using a D-Link DSL-G604T router and I also have just bought the Lexmark X4650. When I set up the printer to work wirelessly, it stuffed every PC (we have two others) access to the internet. ANY help would be great!

    I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 and purchased a Dell wireless printer that caused me to lose my Verizon DSL connection. As long as the printer is off I can connect, but both cannot be working as the same time. HELP.

We have cable internet provided by Virgin. I am accessing the internet by plugging the ethernet cable dirctly into my laptop rather than via my DI524. Have just read a post that says I have to be connected...


If you can connect to the internet using the Ethernet cable on your laptop then the cable modem is configured correctly.
If you want to connect to the Internet using the D-Link wireless router then first you need to configure the D-Link wireless settings and then configure the wireless card in your laptop with the D-Link's wireless settings. Remove the Ethernet from the laptop and connect it to the WAN/Internet port on the D-Link wireless router.

I can't access my wireless internet, asking for a pass phrase


the D Link router is what is causing the issue - Cut your losses and get a linksys ( netgears are ok so maybe one of those ) but avoid D Link and Belkin equipment as far as wireless or networking goes.

An apple airport extreme ( although a bit more expensive ) are very good.
