Question about D-Link GamerLounge DGL-4300 Router (DGL4300)

1 Answer

DGL 4300 I have my DGL 4300 Router can't connect to the web since 5 months ago. I have Charter, DHCP. My router status say "Disabled" when viewed from Windows network connections. The router itself says "Connected" at the status page, but it can't acquire any ip even after Mac cloning and calling Charter to add my Router's ip to their system. A quick look at my routing table shows their is no Gateway. I checked the Wan Statistics page and noticed 2309 errors within 2mins. 0 packets sent, 0 received. I have downgraded and upgraded this router so many times in Vain, I'm out of ideas. Any help would be appreciated.

    I tried connecting directly to the modem and it worked. I eventually gave up and bought D-Link DIR 655 to replace my fallen DGL-4300

    My new router work like a charm. I haven't thoroughly tested its wireless functionality though. I tried using my old router, the DGL4300 as a bridge but that plan failed.

    Have you tried a second router? (assuming by down/upgraded you simply mean the firmware?)

    Have you tried connecting with just a modem?

Glad to hear the new one is working (it's likely or at least possible, that the old one is simply mis-configured - resetting back to it's factory defaults and starting from scratch should help with the bridging issue)

I'm just looking to update the DGL-3420 and update my DGL-4300 router (they were not in use for the past year) having some connection issues

DGL-3420 Firmware & DGL-4300 Firmware
Please visit the above links from DLink Official Support for your products. Firmware updates, Manuals, trouble-shootong guides etc are available. If you are experiencing connection issues, i would suggest that review the router settings before going for firmware updates. Most of the times the connection issues are due to settings only.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

I have a unstable linksys WAG200G what can I do

Converting A Router To A Switch The five steps are:
  1. [Optional] Put a piece of electric tape over the WAN port so it doesn't get used.
  2. Disable the DHCP server.
  3. Change the downstream router's LAN IP.
  4. [Optional] Turn off the wireless radio on the downstream router.
  5. Connect an Ethernet cable from a LAN port on the upstream router to a LAN port on the downstream router.
Step 1: Putting a piece of electric tape over the WAN port isn't necessary. But it is a good way to prevent future problems caused by someone plugging a device into that port.
Step 2: Log into the downstream router, look for the DHCP configuration section, and disable the DHCP server. For example, on a Dlink DI-614+, DHCP server configuration is a menu in the Home configuration section.

Step 3: Change the downstream router's LAN IP to an unused IP in the same subnet as the upstream router. Log into the upstream router and find the DHCP server controls. Figure 3 shows a typical set of DHCP server controls. You can see that - 250 is the range of addresses that will be issued by this router's DHCP server.
You can use any IP address outside (above or below) this range, except for 0 and 255, which are reserved. You also can't use the IP address used by the upstream router. This is usually 1, which in this case is But if you log into your upstream router's admin screens using an IP address with anything other than 1 as the last octet, i.e. XXX.XXX.XXX.1, then just don't use that address.
Thus, a safe LAN IP address for the downstream router that isn't used by the upstream router is an address from to So I assigned my downstream router a LAN IP of (Figure 4).
Step 4: [Wireless routers only] Disable the downstream router's wireless function. It doesn't hurt to unscrew the antennas from the downstream router as well if they are detachable. This gets them out of the way since you aren't using them anymore. Figure 5 shows the wireless disabled for a D-Link DGL-4300.
Step 5: Connect the downstream router. Run an Ethernet cable from a LAN port on the upstream router to a LAN port on the downstream router. The LAN ports are the ports that often grouped together and not labeled as WAN or Internet.

I can't connect any devices to my d-link DGL-4300. How can I connect them?

hi kdrewyo,

I think its the security encryption set-up.You change it in your router..I think its WPA-TKIP..or WEP..

If you know how to change then you can easily try it.


My d link dlg400 router won't issue it's own

The default IP address for this router is Try that. If it is assigning ip addresses to your computer, you can check under status of network connections by right clicking the lan connection, left-clicking status, then click the support tab. The IP address listed next to gateway should be your routers IP address.

I have a D-Link DGL 4500 wireless router. I have

If you don't see any devices connected in the DHCP client list on the router interface even when you are sure of the devices being connected, only a firmware update or a re-flashing of firmware can help. You can find the latest firmware available on the d-link support site. You can verify the model and version numbers and download the corresponding firmware. This is only fix.

Hi, I have at&t DSL using a westell modem and set up a wireless network using a D-link gamer lounge router. It seems to work most of the time but occassionally develops an IP conflict with my wife's...

For any network, you should have one DHCP server. If you try and have more than one DHCP server, it may still work if you have non-overlapping assigned ranges. Also, it sounds like you have more than one network - the network between your westell an your D-Link and between your D0Link and its clients. My belief is that both of those devices can run DHCP servers, firewalls, NAT and so forth, and if the laptop gets multiple responses it can use the wrong one.
One thing that you could do to make things simpler is to put your westell in bridge mode and that will insure you have only one DHCP server, NAT, etc - the one on your DGL-4300.
By "Entire system", do you mean the laptop?
Chances are you can tell windows to "repair" the adapter and it will (given encouragement) disable and reenable the adapter, renew the IP address and so forth. There are command line tools as well, open a cmd and type
ipconfig /renew
to get a new ip address and avoid the reboot.

Problem opening port for utorrent with DGL 4300 router

You must set static IP on your computer where the utorrent is installed. Make sure no firewalls are enabled on your computer like windows firewall or any other firewall like norton, mcaffe, zone alarm and the likes. You should forward the port on separate protocol. Go to for more information on how to forward port for utorrent

Dual Router Configuration

Plug the second router into the lan not the wan and it will act as a switch instead of a router


Hello Krmn,

Are you running windows Xp or Vista ?



Connect them to the router. Aslong as the router is configured for DHCP (and it should be so, even in it's default state), they should both work just fine.
