I have to say I like D-Link products, but why not go for a "N" router, I know they are a bit more expensive but:

they are backwards compatable
you can get bundled "N" USB WiFi dongle + router

go to D-Link.com and check out your region for resellers
Any highstreet electrical/PC stores will supply your requirements

I have emachines model w 3619, need to run internet from my home wireless netgear router to the emachines for internet ser how and what do i huck up to. on my wireless router.


I would go and get an external USB wireless device. They are great for picking up wireless connections you can get them cheap at amazon.com under wireless USB. I'm assuming that your E machine does not have a wireless port installed. Also you can get a PCI wireless card as well. The link above will take you to what you will need to do this. John

this is because your wireless router is a router, and your linksys is also a router. Both are attempting to do routing, and they're colliding with each other.

Go into your linksys router's settings, and set it's IP address to have the SAME subnet mask as your wireless router, (The third number in the ip address has to be the same)

e.g. if your wireless router is 192.168.0.1, make sure your linksys is 192.168.0.2
if your wireless router is 192.168.2.1, make sure your linksys is 192.168.2.2

After that, turn OFF the dhcp server on your linksys router (do this in the linksys config page).

After that, plug the LAN port of your linksys to the LAN port of your wireless router.

Your linksys will now be acting like a "Switch" which is an extension of your network. Voila!

I can't connect to internet via wireless router. My computer doesn't show my wireless network adapter in device manager, even though I have used this computer, router, and DSL modem for over 3 years. I...


Hello! I very much doubt that Memory will cause the problem you have. Are you using a secure network? if so you may have to pair it again with the p.c. try this! hover over the internet icon on the taskbar (2 computor monitors) it should show wireless networks available, if not right click on it then click set up network or search for available networks, if this fails uninstall the wireless router in the device manager and reload after re booting.
Hope this helps!

Upgrade the Firmware of the router :

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.

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.
