I followed all the instructions that came on the CD with my D-Link router, but it won't work unless I run an ethernet cord out of port 1 into my computer. As this completely defeats the purpose of having a wireless router, I'd like some assistance getting this fixed.
Here's all the information I've seen you ask from everyone else:
What Hardware version is your router? A1
What Firmware version is currently loaded? 1.01NA
(according to sticker)
What region are you located? Illinois, USA
Are you wired or wireless connected to the router? I'm currently wired to my D-Link wireless, which is wired to my modem. I'd like to be wireless.
Did you set up a admin log-in and wireless passwords? Under Tools/Admin and Setup/Wireless/Manual. Yes.
What ISP Service do you have? Cable or DSL? DSL
What ISP Modem do you have? Stand Alone or built in router? I'm assuming it's stand-alone. I have a Westell Model 6100 DSL Modem. It's from Verizon.
What ISP Modem make and model do you have? See previous. Just don't laugh at how old the modem is!
If this modem has a built in router, it's best to bridge the modem. Having 2 routers on the same line can cause connection problems. I'm assuming this isn't me.
To tell if the modem is bridged or not, look at the routers web page, Status/Device Info/Wan Section, if there is a 192.168.0.# address in the WAN IP address field, then the modem is not bridged.
I'm not completely incompetent, but if you can, please keep the explanation kind of simple. Networks and routers and all this really aren't my forte.
Thanks in advance!
