Title: Wired connection works to 868L but not internet.
Post by: bosshappy on August 26, 2014, 07:05:07 PM
I have a feeling this is something simple and stupid, but, I'm stuck.  I have a Mac Mini, which is connected via ethernet cable to my 868L.  The connection works, I appear connected on my Mac network settings and I can ping the router from my terminal, HOWEVER, I can't get to the internet.

If I switch my computer's connection to Wireless (5ghz or 2.4), everything's up and I have full connectivity.


I've switched cables around and LAN ports, but the wired connection doesn't have an issue getting to my 868L.  I'm assuming something else was set, somehow, and I can't figure out what.

Oh, and my firmware is 1.08.

Any ideas?

Thanks for your help.

FW Update Process (http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=42457.0)

Is the network port on the mini enabled and set to Automatic networking?

Internet Service Provider and Modem Configurations


Router and Wired Configurations
Some things to try: - Log into the routers web page at 192.168.0.1. Use IE, Opera or FF to manage the router. Besure to log into the Admin account on the router.

Try different ports on the back of the router...
