Connection drop - RevB FW 2.14
« on: June 13, 2013, 09:21:56 PM »

Hello,
I recently bought a DAP-1360 - It's the only one available in my city.
I used to have a internet via phone, but it was too limitated - 2mb/0.60mb. A new internet became disponible in my apartment, but it could be only installed in the living room - and the router sucks - It's wi-fi range is terrible, but I can't change it as It's a "central", the phone is also connected on it.

So I bought the 1360 and installed it as wireless adaptor on my PC. First, I couldn't reach 10mb/3mb. I entered in panic as I spent R$ 220 (almost US$ 110), what's a lot of money here in Brazil to buy a router. I was reaching 0.20/0.10. So I searched and saw the many people resolved it upgrading the FW. If I'm not mistaken, it came with FW 2.10. Anyway, I upgraded it and I reached my speed.

Then it started losting connection.. I could take even 1 hour to get connection again - restart, restore, restart, remove cable, insert cable.. nothing worked.

I wanna know what can I do to solve this - I've seen some people use only G and could solve this, but my FW doesn't allows that.

Thanks for the help!

My main "modem" is mixed with N/B/G, channel 6 (to match the router). WPK-2.

Let it working all night.
When I woke up I turned on the PC and it was still working. Turned off and went school.
When I got back, started using the pc and after I think 1 hour it dropped the connection. It's been 1 hour now, only got it work now.

Hello,
I'm not able to set it as single mode G. I can set it to N/B/G, N/B and N only.
I can't change the channel - it's grey.
Channel width is on 20Mhz, just like the modem (sorry, I don't know the translation for this -- It's from where the router gets the signal. Main router (?))

It's on WPA WPA2/AES. When I tried setting it on TPIK, I got only 2/0.60mb.
Thanks in advance

you may want to test to see if you can disable the modems WiFi and use the 1360 as your wired AP. Better WiFi on the DAP and better configurations as well.

It has lost connection again. This time it was easy to reconnect, I simply clicked "solve problems" on windows, didn't work, entered 192.168.0.50, site survey and reseletected the wi-fi.

I think it's related to the bandwidth - It took almost 3 hours to disconnect, but I wansn't doing fast downloads etc.

When I left it while I sleep the PC was off, so that's maybe the reason.

That's sadly impossible. My PC doesn't has a wireless card and that's too expensive here for me to buy it now. The main router is on the living room and there's no way to bring a cable to my room.

My issue is a common issue! D-Link should have already fixed it!
I've seen a guy who solved this downgrading to 2.10. I tried but it says it's not a DAP firmware.
If someone gets me a DAP-1360 2.10 firmware I would be grateful... Brazil.

Thanks for the help!

Hello,
I can't use InSSIder as I don't have a wireless card.
With Site Survey I can see 16 connections (including mine).
There are 2 stronger than mine. Mine varies between 44%-54%. I have already bought 2 15dBi antennas (not sure If it can handle 15 dBi, but It's gonna work, right?) but I have to wait 12 days.

Really sad with this router.

Are they all on the 2.4Ghz frequency? If so, then there could be wireless congestion and this will cause problems and is not a HW problem with the DAP, and it's a Wireless AP, not a router.

You may need to upgrade your PC to a 5Ghz adapter and use the 1360 in AP mode on the 5Ghz freqency if 2.4Ghz is crowded.

Managing Signal Congestion

Well,
I have a DSL/Router here and used it before the new internet was installed here. It worked without any problem, it uses telephone jack.


It happened again, I "solved problem" on windows, it has redefined the adaptor but didn't work (before it redefines it I couldn't acess 192.168.0.50). So I entered 192.168.0.50 and set it to G+N. Saved, still didn't work. So I went on windows' "solve problems" and It was solved. It has redefined the adaptor and a problem on the IP was corrected. (Don't remember what it was, but something like the connection didn't have it's own IP.)

And as you are really active here you know this is one of the most common problems here

Thanks for the help man!

I can't connect the cable from the main router to the DAP.

Oh, yes.
The main router also has it's wi-fi feature but it sucks. That's why I have the DAP on my room, I could buy a wireless card instead.

My mother can use the main router wi-fi perfectly. 5 bars, her bedroom is on the final of the corridor, so there are no walls (only her bedroom one). Mine is the second bedroom, so there is a room before mine. 2 walls.

My iPhone can use the main router wi-fi with 1-3 bars (i don't know why, it doesn't has 2 bars). Not really fast, but I can use it (If I am on the computer I can reach 1mbps, If Im on the bed I can reach even 2.5mbps)

It has happened again. =/
N+G. Should I set N only?
I've noticed it's taking more time to drop the connection - maybe I'm right? It's the bandwidth?
I don't know what to do. It's the only router I can buy here in my city - I can't wait 12 days to have internet. I've gotta fix this!

The router doesn't reboot, nothing - it simply losts connection. Windows says it doesn't have a static IP, how do I set this?
Thanks
