D-Link wireless Router DI-614+

by mhgandhi / August 21, 2005 5:33 AM PDT

Cofig. Windows XP Pro. P4 2.40GHz 512 DDRAM.

Have my static IP address from my ISP. Recently I bought a laptop and above mentioned Router so I can connect My comp.thru Router & laptop to operate wireless. I wanted to set up my computer first thru the router so I followed the steps as given by the router IP :-

1.Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)Properties and DNS Server were set to obtain addresses automatically in my computer.

2. Router was powered with the Ethernet cable connected to port 1 and thru IE & router IP opened the router site to Run the Wizard.

3. Followed all the steps on the screen and put the static IP address, Sublet Mask,Gateway & DNS as per the Wizard in the router.

4. Connected the Internet cable to WAN port of the Router.

After doing all that I still find that the internet does not work thru Router but works fine if I connect directly to the comp after putting proper IP, Sublet etc.

There are quite a few other setting in the if I open the site thru IE but was told that once I run the wizard I do not require further settings.

Will appreciate if a guidance is given step by step to configure my router as I feel I am doing something wrong.

Thanks in advance

1. What version of firmware is in the router?

2. Did you ever install any ISP software such as an PPPoE or such ?

Firmware verstion?

In reply to: D-Link wireless Router noted different versions. There was some non-Dlink firmware but that puts us into a very odd place that I can't help with.

If a machine has a failing tcpip stack, look up WINSOCKFIX or WINSOCKXPFIX to repair with ease.

Very odd firmware for that. Where did that come from?

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
