D-Link DIR-601 router problem

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Alright folks, so I had my wireless router working a while ago, set up with a password and everything. And I had a good strong signal. Now I can't connect because it says limited or no connectivity. I tried resetting it, I tried re-doing the install process, and I tried resetting the modem which still works when I pluge directly in. Any idea's will be greatly appreciated

Are any other devices connecting to the router via wireless without problems?

Try connecting a device, by wire, to the router (not the modem) and see if you can connect. If you do connect, it might not really tell you much, except that you can use the router with physical connections.

How old is this router?

**Edit** sorry, you already told us you can connect physically. just re-read your opening post.

The router is only like a week or two old. It's a wireless N router

What version of Windows are you using? I ask because I had a similar issue when I used Windows XP Pro with a Linksys adapter.

Referring to your OP..

Here's my thoughts (and I think you're thinking the same thing)..

New router. You've already reset & re-configured. Multiple devices cannot connect to the router. I know it won't help, but you can try, connecting a device to the router by wire, open the command prompt, type: ipconfig /release (then type) ipconfig /renew

My diagnosis is that this issue is isolated to the router itself. Being that it is only 1-2 weeks old, can you get an exchange on the product?

**EDIT**

One more troubleshooting attempt:

Since it is a wireless N router, if your adapters are wireless G..

Connect a PC device to the router by wire, and check the configuration through a browser.

If you don't know how to do this: After connected with the router by wire, open your command prompt (Start > Run > cmd > OK). Type ipconfig /all, and find the "Default Gateway" (usually 192.168.x.x). Type that IP address into your browser's address bar.

Enter your user name and pw. If never done this, you should have a prompt for setting it up, or if not it should be admin/admin.

Find your wireless section, and make sure your network mode is set to Mixed, or G.

I am looking through my configuration to see if there are any additional troubleshooting we can try
