Question about D-Link 802.11g Wireless Router WBR-1310 (WBR1310)
Each time I lose connectivity to the internet, I regain it by power cycling my cable modem and router. This is happening WAY too often. I never have this problem if I connect the cable modem directly to the computer, though admittantly, my cable service is probably more sluggish than it should be. Do i have something set wrong, or is it time to go buy a new router?
I'm going to bet you have wireless interference...try changing the wireless frequency in the config under channels. Good luck

My D-link router has never worked the way it should be. I always come to the point when would have to be reset by pressing and holding the reset sw in with a paper clip for 10 secs. Unfortunately I always come to realize that there is no switch, or the hole is blocked. So I called tech support couple of times, but they only tell me the same thing to type in 192.168.0.1 and do not understand that I tried this and all other possibilities a million times. The result always "The server at 192.168.0.1 is taking too long to respond." So last time I was so upset when tech support hung up the phone on me, so I went and opened the case and found the switch is factory blocked, (sealed) with black epoxy. Has anyone else found similar problem??? What should I do??? D-link tech support makes a habbit out of hanging the phone up on me. The reason I think they do this intentionally, b/c for start they ask my phone number but they have never called me back so far. I am sick of it to keep calling them back and spend hours on the phone waiting.

Call Dlink help. Those guys know things that aren't in the manual. You may need to update the firmware. Or reset it. I had a problem with another brand of router and it turned out it needed a 2nd level reset, which involved holding a paperclip in the reset hole for 60 seconds. Then it worked great.
