Been trying to connect this "product" (<-- fill free to change the noun to something of your liking) all night and this morning. Done hundreds of wireless installs with different products, troubleshooted them and figured out all connection issues... until now. This laptop im currently on is configured to use: 2 belkins, 1 netgear, an ooooold dlink (that was a nightmare too), a linksys (RIP) and an at&t 2wire. I've also set up multiple computers to access wireless feed on several of those products. Regardless of how stubborn the Router and/or computer was being, one always ended up with a connection.
i purchased this "product" since it was $20 off at MicroCenter and had good reviews online. People must not have experience with a range of products or this router is hit-or-miss. The Router is even connected to a D-Link 2320B modem, so I would highly doubt any incompatibility issues. The modem even looks like the offspring of the Router; what a great warm feeling. Vista Home, Dynamic IP, PPoE, etc. I'm on here, so a direct connection from the modem obviously works; a wired connection with the router installed has NO connection. I also connected, via ethernet cord, from the Router to a computer running the latest version of Ubuntu and can you guess what the result was? Works perfectly fine WITHOUT the router.
all that to get to this:
Repair, diagnose, reset all = "You might have an issue with DHCP etc, etc, etc" YOU NEED TO FIX THE DHCP SERVER ISSUE!
I'm going to try and get this thing going, but if it is not running by today, I'm going to take this thing back and get something else. I'll also go to the hundreds of places claiming this product is "great" and put up what I think about this "product". If MicroCenter doesn't take it back, I'll run across town to Corporate and see what is "not the problem" and hopefully this "product" doesn't grow wings and attempt to fly
