Question about D-Link AirPlus Xtreme G DWL-2100AP 802.11g/b Wireless Access Point

1 Answer

Connection I have a Windows ME system. The D-Link Air Plus Xtreme Wireless Utility detects my home network. When I go to the Site Survey screen, my home network is there, including in the Profile area. It is set up correctly (as it worked in the past on this machine -- I don't know why it stopped). But when I click on Connect, it does not connect, The Link Info screen shows Disconnected for Status. I've got to believe there is a simple answer for how to go from profile to connected. The About screen says: MAC Address: 00:11:95:BD:F5:D9 Utility Version: V4.10 Driver Version: 3.3.0.1571 Thank you for anything you can do.

The software is simply too NEW for your computer (happens all the time) BUT you can get your computer upgraded at a local computer repair store.

Bridge will not find router


Setting up a wireless router with a Windows client can be complicated.
There are a number of measures and options that have to be understood, and it's all too easy to make a mistakes--but D-Link provides an easy-to-walk-through configuration system to help you set up your D-Link wireless router.

Plug one end of the Ethernet cable into the DSL modem.

Then plug the other end into the "WAN" port on the back of the D-Link wireless router.

Connect wired computers to any of the other Ethernet ports on the router using another Ethernet cable.

Access the D-Link Configuration Screen

Open your web interface and type "http://192.168.0.1" into the address bar, then hit "Enter" or "Return."

Use "Admin" as the username and leave the password blank when the login screen appears.

Click "OK." You should now see the D-Link configuration screen.

Set Up General Security

Change your administrative password by clicking on the "Tools" tab and choosing the "Admin" button. Enter a new password under the "Administrator" heading.

Confirm it, and click "Apply."
Disable the wireless Local Area Network (LAN) if you don't need to use the wireless access and you want to make sure no one else is able to access your network.

Under the "Home" tab, choose "Wireless" and select the "Off" option.

Enable Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP)

Locate the "Home" tab in the D-Link Configuration screen, and click on the "Wireless" button.

Use the "Open System" button beside "Authentication."

Select the "Enabled" button next to "WEP," and set the encryption key to "128 bit."

Set the "Key Type" to "ASCII" and choose a 13-digit password for the "Key 1" field.

Write down the password in a secure location.

Click "Apply."

Change the SSID

Change the SSID to make it more difficult for others to locate and use your network by clicking on the "Home" tab and locating the "Wireless" button.

Change the default SSID to one of your choosing, then click "Apply."

Disable SSID broadcasting.
Under the "Advanced" tab, click on "Performance" and check off the "Disabled" box. Again, click "Apply."
Filter MAC Addresses

Click the "Advanced" tab in the D-Link "Configuration" screen and select the "Filters" button.

Choose the "MAC Filters" and click on "Only Allow Computers with MAC Address Listed Below to Connect to the Network."

Enter the name and MAC address of the computers allowed to access the network, beginning with the one you are currently configuring.

Click "Apply."

Cannot connect to Dlink DAP-1513 at 192.168.0.50. Unit is plugged into home network router.


Plug a computer into the D-Link.
Under Windows 7, click the "Start" button.
Into the search-box, type 'cmd' and press ENTER.
Type 'ipconfig /all'.
Look for the IP-address of the "gateway" (or the "DHCP-server").
Type that IP-address into your web-browser.

I can not acces the internet on my laptop. It just keeps trying to connect.

If it is XP then in the bottom right hand corner you will find Wireless network connection ( looks like 1 computer monitor). Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is windows Vista, then in the bottom right hand corner you will find 2 computer monitor icon. Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is Windows 98/ME/2000 then use the adapter utility to connect to the wireless network.
For MAC you will see the AIRPORT icon at the top.

Also check the wireless settings of the router. For this you will need to open the router set up page

I have problem with Wireless network connection (Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection) on Sony Vaio vgn-fs960p model. I'd reinstalled Windows XP Pro SP2, since that WLAN can't detect and connect to...


I suggest uninstalling and re-installing (which the operating system will prompt you to let it do automatically) the Intel PRO wireless device. That should do it. If you must provide authentication details in order to connect to a given access point (if it is Secure), then you'll need to do that again (manually) also.

Before doing so, make sure that you're running the DHCP (dynamic host configuration protocol) service. That's what enables wireless devices to get an IP address on the LAN to which you're trying to connect. Also make sure that the manufacturer's or your operating system's utility required to actuate the device Service is running.

To examine and modify (use caution here) system Services in Windows, Run the following command from a command line: services.msc

If User Access Control is enabled (it is enabled by default), it will prompt you for permission to run the MMC (Microsoft Management Console) required to change the state or setup of your system Services first. In order for the wireless device to connect it must both have said utility running (mine in Vista Business is called WLAN AutoConfig--make sure it's set to start in Automatic mode before you reboot).

To uninstall the device in Windows (Mac will be similar), right-click it from its listing the Device Manager (use Windows Help if you don't know how to run the Device Manager) applet and select Uninstall this device... You will also need to reboot because devices have "monitor/system level priority" and rebooting will ensure that the system will talk directly to the correct(ed) driver for the device.

Site survey no signal


Site Survey is meaningful only in bridge mode, not access point mode. Assuming you are operating this unit in bridge mode, it could be possible that no signal is being detected because there are no access points nearby for it to detect. If you know that there are, in fact, working access points in the vicinity, then my first suspicion is that you have a faulty unit.

Enter the configuration utility inside the unit and run a signal survey. If the survey does not detect any access points, your radio section has gone bad. If it does detect the appropriate access point, examine the signal and noise numbers associated with the access point. For a reliable connection, there should be a difference of at least 18 between the two figures.
