    Are you providing the proper pass phrase or key if your network is secured? Are you sure you're connecting to the right network? If your router is still using default settings, there may be more than one network with the same name (SSID, "dlink" by default) and you may be trying to connect to someone else's router.

Generally if you can see the D-Link then everything is trying to talk. Would have to know if the d-link is new out of the box or is part of an existing setup. If the d-link has been part of the network I would suggest that you don't have the security settings correct. If you right click on the network icon and look at the send received numbers. If received is zero then your problem is you don't have the security key (WEP or other type)) setup. If you are getting recieved numbers you may not have the DHCP setup in the d-link. DHCP assigns the numbers to the computer but the d-link has to have this turned on in some models others it is by default.

If both your laptop and dlink are not new and specifically about a year old then I would also suspect that the dlink has died or is dieing on you. If you have had periods of disconnects or slow jerky network acess then these are signs of the dlink having problems. The wireless part tends to go after a year or so while the wired portion probably still works. When they go they are annoying as they work then they won't and so on.

That is you next step to try is to plug in your laptop direct to the wired connection on the dlink to test if the problem is the wifi portion of the dlink. If it connects your problem is the wifi and you probably will have to replace the unit. Next plug it into the cable modem and see if the problem was in the dlink itself.

I try to contact my router with the adress 192.168.0.254 and it doesn't work. Can you help me?

Basically your Router will have a hard coded addres on your network such as 192.xxx.xxx.xxx. You can find this address in your network properties. On your computer go to:

Control Panel
Double click on Network Connections
Select your Network Adapter (Double Click)
Click on the Support Tab

Here where it says default Gateway is the address of your Router enter this address in the Browser address bar and you ahould be able to communicate with the Web GUI of your Router.

Good Luck

How to find ilo ip addr in windows operating

If you want to find the IP address that has been issued to your computer by a router or your ISP then :-
Click Start - Run - Type "cmd" and press Enter. Windows will then open a DOS command box, then type "ipconfig" and press enter. It will then display the IP addresses of all the network adapters on your computer. If you get IP address 0.0.0.0 then the network adapter/s didn't get issued an IP address from the router or the ISP.

Can not connect to internet

My first guess is that your Dlink ADSL modem is really a modem router, so you are getting double routing. Sometimes this works just fine, though, so I'm not confident that's the whole explanation.
You'll need to setup your IP plan carefully
set the D-Link modem(router?) to bridging mode & the DLink wireless router does the login to Exetel.
DLink wireless router WAN side: DHCP + login to Exetel
DLink wireless router LAN side: 192.168.0.1
Subnet 255.255.255.0
DHCP on: range 192.168.0.10 to .20
DNS Servers: 220.233.0.3, 220.233.0.4
with PC's wireless adaptor set to DHCP
so picks up eg:
IP address: 192.168.0.10
Gateway address: 192.168.0.1
DNS Servers: 220.233.0.3, 220.233.0.4

I have a dlink w-1310. I turned mac filtering off so that two iphones and a playstation can get on the wifi network. I would like to allow these addresses to the network and have my mac address filtering...

Are you talking about network places in a Windows Operating System?

Can you get into your DLink Router?

If you can directly get into the Dlink router, you will be able to determine what the mac addresses of those devices are, in the DHCP list table. You must have the devices on and connected to the network for them to be listed. From within the DLink router, you can also turn on mac filtering.

For exact details, visit dlinks website: www.dlink.com for the support manual for the router.

I have a Lenovo Ideapad S10 and it will not connect with the desktop PC. It keeps telling me I have limited or no connectivity. It also tells me the network did not assign a network address to the...

It needs an IP address. A router hands out IP addresses using DHCP in most default settings. Your computer has to be set to "Obtain an IP address automatically: and "Obtain DNS server address automatically" in (TCP/IP) Properties of LAN Properties for your Device name. You can also use hardcoded IP addresses. It's pretty complicated.

Wireless access point connecting to router...

The question is how do you want to cable the netgear and what do you want to do with it.

If you cable a lan port of the DLink to the Netgear WAN port you will have two subnets that must be addressed differently. Opening up and forwarding the ports for XBox could be difficult.

I believe cabling the Netgear as an access point makes more sense. CONFIGURE THE NETGEAR BEFORE CABLING. This is achieved by wiring a lan port on the DLINK to a lan port on the netgear and ignoring the wan port on the netgear. This will involve configuring several router items that should be completed before the devices are cabled together. You will need to remember the Netgear's new network address and probably use a static IP address from a computer to configure it back into being a router after these changes, if required. Or reset the configuration to factory default following the users guide.

First the Netgear needs DHCP turned off as it will be part of the DLink's network and not a separate subnet - the DLink will perform the DHCP services.

Second the LAN side of the Netgear will need a static IP address in the DLink's network. This is where it may get tricky for you. Verify the DLink has an IP Address like 192.168.0.1 and a subnet mask like 255.255.255.0. That means all IP Addresses in your network start 192.168.0.??? where ??? is unique for your network. Verify your DLink router has a set of addresses reserved in the DHCP setup for dynamic address assignment these addresses like 192.168.0.100 to 192.168.0.199. If the above is true or with the information you extract from you DLink router you need to determine where you can create static IP addresses -- in the above case 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.99 are available. You need to assign one of those like 192.168.0.2 to the LAN side of the NetGear Router. You will probably want to assign another to the XBox == like 192.168.0.20. You will probably need to deal with opening ports or placing the XBox into the DMZ of the DLINK router which will require a static IP Address.

Now cable the devices

When considering the XBox Configuration below the DLink is the router that must be configured to allow the open ports or DMZ access to the Xbox == the netgear is not functioning as a router in this configuration.


Check out the following links on XBox Configuration if required.

The second link may be the best to start with.
