My setting for the wireless connection is the following:

802.11 Mode - Mix mode G and N
Enable Auto Channel Scan - CHECKED
Transmission Rate - Auto
Channel Width Auto
Security Mode - WPA-Personal
WPA Mode - WPA2 Only
Cipher Type - AES
Group Key Update Interval - 3600

5Ghz Band - Disabled

What happens if you temporarily disable WiFi security? Will it connect then?

Is HT20/40 Co-exhistence enabled? Try to disable that and retest.
Disable Short GI and test?
Set a manual channel to 1, 6 or 11 and test?

Disabled WiFi security and it was not able to connect.

HT20/40 Co-exhistence was always disabled. Unable to connect

Looked through all the menus and was not able to find Short GI.

I will test the channels tomorrow.

Do other devices connect? If not, then there is a problem on the router, if other devices do, then problem could be with PS console...

Could try to update FW...If you do please follow this:

All other device connects. smart phones, laptop, tablet, desktops.

Tried channel 1, 6 and 11. Does not connect.

I have a DGL-4300 and it is able to connect.
But the setting are different.
WPA Mode - WPA and WPA2
Cipher Type - TKIP and AES

Tried these settings on the DIR 850L and still does not connect.

I will try to update the FW in the next few days.

It's either a problem with the FW or with the PS.

Keep us posted on the update...

Hi, I have seen similar problem with PS3, laptops and mobile phones.
It always happens on wireless, and when many clients connected to the router.
If I reset the router (the hole in the bottom), there is no problem connecting to the router for any of these devices. But if I connect at lot of other devices first, there is problems connection to wireless for new devices.
On the laptop I can see it connects to the router, but doesnt get the right IP, but assigns a dummy IP, telling that it didnt get IP from DHCP server.

As I see it, the router has problem with DHCP server on wireless side, when many devices has allready been asigned an IP.

In my case, I have around 15 devices connected, mix of wired and 2.4Gwireless and 5G wireless. All are 802.11n. Firmware is 1.07. And DHCP range covers 80 ip's, .20 to .100. Have also tried default settings, and range from .10 to .200. Same thing.

If i default the router, and first connect all my wireless devices, and then the wired ones, I can have all devices running on the router. But if I then have a guest that would like to use the wireless network, this happens again. He can see the router, and try to connect, but will not get an ip from the routers dhcp server.

BR, Kurt

Link>Welcome!

  • What region are you located?
  • Has a Factory Reset been performed?
  • Was a Factory Reset performed before and after any firmware updates then set up from scratch?
  • Was the router working before any firmware updates?

Internet Service Provider and Modem Configurations
  • What ISP Service do you have? Cable or DSL?
  • What ISP Modem Mfr. and model # do you have?
  • What ISP Modem service link speeds UP and Down do you have?
  • Check ISP MTU requirements, Cable is usually 1500, DSL is around 1492 down to 1472. Call the ISP and ask. Link>Checking MTU Values
  • For DSL/PPPoE connections on the router, ensure that "Always ON" option is enabled.

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.
  • Turn off ALL QoS or Disable Traffic Shaping (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 or under Setup/PARENTAL CONTROL/Set to>None: Static IP or Obtain Automatically From ISP.
  • Enable Use Unicasting (compatibility for some ISP DHCP Servers) under Setup/Internet/Manual.
  • Turn on DNS Relay under Setup/Networking. Link>Finding Faster DNS Addresses using Name Bench
  • Setup DHCP reserved IP addresses for all devices ON the router. Setup/Networking. This ensures each devices gets its own IP address when turned on and connected, eliminates IP address conflicts and helps in troubleshooting.
  • Ensure devices are set to auto obtain an IP address.
  • If IPv6 is an option on the router, select Local Connection Only or Disable IPv6 options under Setup/IPv6.
  • Set Firewall settings to Endpoint Independent for TCP and UDP under Advanced/Firewall. Enable or Disable SPI to test.
  • Enable uPnP and Multi-cast Streaming under Advanced/Networking. Disable uPnP for testing Port Forwarding rules. Enable IPv6 Multi-cast Streaming for routers that have a Media Server option. Disable IPv6 Multi-cast Streaming if IPv6 or Media Server is not being used.
  • Turn off WISH, and WPS under Advanced.
  • WAN Port Speed set to Auto or specific speed? Some newer ISP modems support 1000Mb so manually setting to Gb speeds can be supported by the router. Advanced/Advanced Networking/WAN Port Speed
  • Set current Time Zone, Date and Time. Use an NTP Server feature. Tools/Time.
  • Check cable between Modem and Router, swap out to be sure. Link> Cat6 is recommended.

Wireless Configurations
Links>Wireless Installation Considerations and Managing Signal Congestion
  • Ensure the default (dlink) SSID name is changed. Can be anything and not something thats already in use by any neighboring WiFi routers. Under Setup/Wireless/Manual.
  • What wireless modes are you using?
  • 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz routers: Try single mode G or N or mixed G and N on 2.4Ghz and single mode N on 5Ghz?
  • Channel Width set for Auto 20/40Mhz or try 20Mhz only.
  • Try setting a manual Channel to a open or unused channel. 1, 6 or 11. 11 for single mode N if the channel is clear.
  • What security mode are you using? Preferred security is WPA-Personal. WPA2/AES Only. Some WiFi adapters don't support AES, so you might want to try TPIK only or Auto TPIK and AES.
  • What wireless devices do you have connected?
  • Any cordless house phones?
  • Any other WiFi routers in the area? Link> Use InSSIDer to find out. How many?
  • If you have any of these options, Try turning OFF or ON Short GI, WLAN Partition, HT 20/40 Co-exhistance and Extra Wireless Protection if you have it. Recommended settings are default. Under Advanced/Advanced Wireless.
  • Enable WMM Enable Under Advanced/Advanced Wireless.
  • Try setting Medium or Low power output settings and test again Under Advanced/Advanced Wireless.

3rd Party Security Software Configurations
  • Turn off all anti virus and firewall programs on PC while testing. 3rd party firewalls are not generally needed when using routers as they are effective on blocking malicious inbound traffic.
  • Turn off all devices accept for one wired PC while testing.


Router Placement
Forum User - "Well I feel really dumb. After moving the router away from other electronic devices my speeds are back to normal. Just a heads up for anyone experiencing slow speeds, you might want to move it away from other electronics and see if that helps."
6" minimum safe distance between devices.

Also there is v1.09 available, if choose to update, Please follow this:
