wireless router won't broadcast after updating firmware
« on: November 29, 2011, 06:16:45 PM »

I recently updated my firmware for a DIR-601 router and have internet while hardwired, but no wireless. I saved the configuration settings before updating, but this doesn't even matter because my wireless router doesn't even show up in the list of available wireless network connections. Why isn't my router showing up? I tried a few things like unplugging it and resetting it, but nothing seems to help. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

IS the wireless radio enabled under the routers web page Setup/Wireless/Manual?
What HW version is your router?

Thanks for your reply! I just got it to work and we now have wireless! I reset the router (and made sure to hold down the reset button just in case) unplugged it and plugged it back in after > 15 seconds and completely reinstalled it and it finally worked. Maybe I wasn't resetting it correctly? I have no idea and don't know if the wireless radio was enabled, but I checked and it is now. Thanks!

Good to hear.

Some things to try and configure:
Try single mode G or mixed G and N?
What security mode are you using? WEP, WPA or WPA2? Preferred is WPA-Personal. WPA2/Auto TPIK and AES.
Turn off Short GI and Extra Wireless Protection if you have it. Under Advanced/Advanced Wireless.

Ensure DNS IP addresses are being filled in under Setup/Internet/Manual? You can find these under Status/Device Info/Wan section.
Turn off ALL QoS (DIR only) GameFuel (DGL only and if ON.) options. Advanced/QoS or Gamefuel.
Turn off Advanced DNS Services if you have this option under Setup/Internet/Manual.
Turn on DNS Relay under Setup/Networking.
Setup DHCP reserved IP addresses for all devices on the router. Setup/Networking
Ensure devices are set to auto obtain an IP address.
Set Firewall settings to Endpoint Independent for TCP and UDP.
Save off the routers configuration under Tools/System.

Enjoy.
