Question about D-Link DI-704P Router

1 Answer

Laptop can't find router

I just installed a D-Link DI-704p router to setup wireless for my cable (roadrunner) connection, and the internet seems to be working fine on my main computer (a Dell desktop running Windows XP Professional), and everything seemed to go ok when I went to the D-Link site (http://192.168.0.1/) to configure the router. I changed my Admin password, etc. However, I cannot find any options under any of the tabs on the d-link page to setup or broadcast my SSID and network key so my laptop (an HP dv6000 running Windows Vista Home Basic) can find the network. I can see all of my neighbors networks, etc, but nothing for my own. This has taken about 5 hours of my time so far. Any advice or instructions would be greatly appreciated!

3. pull up ur browser then type at the url:192.168.1.1.or 192.168.0.1 or u can check the routers default gateway by right clicking the network icon on the lower right of your task bar and click on status and it will show the ip address of the computer, subnetmask and default gateway, the default gateway is the routers ip address, once u type in to the url, it will ask u the username and password, by default the username is admin and the password is 1234 or just leave it blank
4. it will show the setup page of the router. u can set the router on the specific internet setup that u have.
a. if ur isp is a cable company, normaly u need to do a mac clone on the router setup page by cloning the computer that is reg to the cable company, how to determine it. ex. the computer that is reg to the cable company is a desktop or laptop, if this computer is connected to the modem directly and u can access internet.
b. once u determined it u need to connect this computer directly to the router and do a mac clone and set ur internet settings to auto-dhcp..then save the settings and after that, unplug to the power of the modem and router, plug in 1st the power of the modem then once all lights lit, plug in the router, then once all lights lit, try to pull up a browser that ur computer is connected directly to the router.. ur cable connection shud be, cable from the modem will go to the WAN port of the router and connect ethernet cable on port1 going to the lan port of the computer..once u can access the internet, u can now access again the setup page of the router by typing at the url:192.168.1.1 and u can setup the wireless settings, u need to create a ssid or wireless name and a security..
5. If ur isp is a dsl normaly they give u a username and password to connect to the internet, ur settings on the router should be PPPoe
6. If ur isp gives u a static ip address settings, u need to set the router to isp setup.
a. how to check the isp of the isp given to u..
1. click on start
2. run
3. type cmd
4. it will show a dos prompt
5. from the dos prompt type ipconfig/all
6. it will list the ip address, subnet, default gateway, dns server
this settings should be type in to the settings on the router for static ip addressing..
7. Once your done on the internet setting, go to your wireless connection settings and you can create a wireless network name or ssid, set a security by selecting wep, wpa, wpa2.
8. once all is set. save the settings and to check if your laptop can access the wireless network that you did, turn on the wireless switch of your laptop, once its on, it will show the wireless network icon on the lower right of the taskbar, right click it and select on view available network, the network name that u did should list, just select it and connect and it will ask for the password, just type the password and connect, you should be connected to the wireless network and have internet access..
9. If you are going to hook up your desktop to the wireless connection, you need to install a wireless network adapter, install the driver and do the same thing as u did to the laptop, for the desktop no need of turning on the wireless switch, once you install the driver correctly, it will show a network icon..
if you have any query pls feel free to get in touch.. good luck

Print server for vista, D-link DI-704p


I can recomend to your network setup is WPS54GU2
Wireless-G PrintServer for USB 2.0
******************************** Before configuring the wireless settings of the printserver, make sure to know the following settings on your D-link router: SSID, and wireless security.
Configuring the Wireless Settings on the Printserver
The wireless settings of the printserver can be configured using its web-based utility. Make sure the printserver is set to a static IP on the network.
NOTE: Make sure the printserver is already working when hardwired to the Dlink router before attempting to use it wirelessly on your network.
Step 1:
Access the printserver’s web-based setup page. Open a web-browser such as Internet Explorer.
NOTE: If you're using Mac, use Safari to access the printserver's web-based setup page.
Step 2:
Go to the address bar and enter the IP address you've assigned to the PrintServer.
NOTE: To assign the PrintServer a static IP address, click here.
Step 3:
When the printserver setup page appears, click Wireless.

D-Link DI-704P as wireless


Yes, you have to. The router model mentioned is not a wireless router, not unless you have other network device there that transmits wireless connection such as a wireless access point.

Moving desktop across room where there is no cable connection.


you can buy a cheap USB wifi adapter and connect the desktop wirelessly just like your laptop, this should do the trick.
or you can buy an access point to extend the range of the wireless network, you should not be moving the router itself this way.

Can I piggyback a wireless router onto a hard-wired router?


Yes, you can connect the DI-624 to your exitsing EBR-2310, you just need to connect the a cable from port 4 of the EBR-2310 to the internet/wan port of the DI-624, then after that you can already use now the wireless to your laptop and also the wired router to your desktops.
But I may suggest you to just replace the EBR-2310 with the DI-624 so you will only be using 1 router that can cater your laptop and also your desktop, Just connect the cable from your modem that is conencted now to your EBR-2310 to the internet/wan port of the DI-624 then run the setup CD that should be it.

Hope that helps...........

Remote Desktop Connection on DI-704P


did you open TCP port 3389 on the router, and assign it to your computer? Remote desktop requires that port.

Add di-704p to an existing network


What you want to do should be quite easy:

1. Just connect one of the LAN ports of the DI-704P to a LAN port of your WRT54G. Try using a standard network cable. If the port status lights does not turn on on both sides when you connect the cable, use a "crossover" cable. Important: leave the DI-704P WAN port empty.

2. Disable the DHCP server on your DI-704P, your WRT54G will be the DHCP server.

3. Assign a static IP address to you DI-704P, different from your WRT54G. Example, if your WRT54G has 192.168.2.1, you may assign 192.168.2.4 to your DI-704P. Make sure that the IP address you assign is outside the DHCP range configured in your WRT54G and that the subnet mask is identical on both.
You will then be able to use your print server from any wired and wireless computer and the remaining LAN ports both on the WRT54G and DI-704P.

My router is failing


I have had many D-Link routers fail ova the years and they all seem to start off just as ya describe , then go toes up... after a bit. Of course B4 getting another unit, one must first re-install all drivers, check all cords, cables etc. just to rule out anything else. Then get a nice new modern one :)

Problem on connecting the internet


Why are you using a hub? With a router, you can connect direct to the client. Eliminate the hub and see if that helps. Be sure to follow all the manufacturer's instructions for setup.

Sympatico & DLink DI-704P


It usually is simple, and hopefully the answer is as well. If you haven?t already done so unplug the modem and the router. Wait for a few seconds and then plug the modem in followed by the router. Reboot your PC and try the Internet again. If it still doesn?t work then I would try doing a hard reset of your router and reconfigure using the setup process outlined by the manufacturer. If that still doesn?t work let us know and we?ll continue ?.
