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.

To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access,please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

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.

Internet no longer working, but internal network is fine.

i agree with all the above.. it's definately clear as mud how the network is designed and or funtioning. The machines connected to the wireless d-link router.. are they via cat5 inthe wired ports or wireless ? is the server the machine thats connecting to the switch and wiress router and modem? i'd say reset all switches modems routers and machines.. shut them all down.. then fire the cable modem, then the wireless router then the desktop switch then the server, the workstations and the one lonely wireless.. run "ipconfig /all" on all machines and if they aren't all sharing common ips and access, provide the results here for further investigation.

Set up 2 wireless routers, 1st for printer, 2nd for internet

You should only need one wireless router for everything. The purpose of the router is to "route" multiple devices together. Your set-up should be something like this:

Modem connected to wireless router via Ethernet cable.
Wireless router broadcasting wireless internet connection.
Computer(s) connected to wireless router via cable or wireless adapter.
Computer with network printer sharing enabled.
Turn on wireless printer.
You should be able to detect the printer via Windows.
