I have a dlink DNS-323 and I just replaced an old dlink DIR-655 with a new DIR-655. Now when I try to access the DNS-323 via web access, I get a msg that something is "waiting for 192.168.0.8", which is the DNS-323. Is there something I failed to set in the new DIR-655? Also, is there a direct interface to the DNS-323 rather than going thru the web interface, as follows:
The old 655 router pretty much got fried. Had to replace it. Decided to just get another DIR-655. Not exactly the same router.
I downloaded the IP Scanner and when I tried to install and run it I got a "Runtime error (at 200:959): External exception C000001D.
Any more suggestions?
Same result. Is this software for XP? Web site only shows windows 7 & 8
Hey, what happened to my expert?
Yes I am. What more info do you need?
What is it you wish to check out?
If the IP address of the device (323) did not match the IP address allocated to it in the router via DHCP, I would not be able to access the device, PERIOD.
I realize both XP and the DNS-323 are unsupported. If you are not familiar with the DLink products, please pass this on to someone that is familiar with them.
Yes, I can log in to router. What info do you need?
Router IP is 192.168.0.1
DNS-323 IP is 192.168.0.32
My only attempt to access the DNS-323 is entering IP thru Firefox
I can access DNS-323 however it may take 5 to 15 min to get an acknowledgement which will eventually go back to login screen
Yes I have. Since I am still on XP, the last version of IE functional on XP is v8 which gives me the identical results. I appreciate the offer of $44 for connecting to my machine, however, I really don't think you (justanswer) have earned the initial $18 yet. I haven't had an answer from anyone yet that I haven't been able to get from the user guide.
Actually, none of your suggestions worked. Contrary to the documentation, the DNS-323 has to be connected directly to a computer to be configured. Once plugged into a PC, you then run the Dlink Easy Search Utility. The Utility will display the default IP address that will only be shown via the Utility. Happens to be 169.254.85.118. While being directly plugged in to a PC, enter default IP address in browser and proceed to configure DNS-323. While all you "Experts" tried to dazzle me with your "Network" knowledge, none of you had any knowledge of the Dlink products and how to configure them. Hmmm, maybe I should bill justanswer.com for this mini lesson in "Dlink configurations". Actually, I'm just going to request a refund.
Sorry, Rob. Your suggestion came at least an hour after I managed to interpret the setup instructions. Unfortunately, the instructions are very vague and misleading, even for someone with my background. If you look back thru the e-mails, you will see that I requested someone with knowledge of Dlink product knowledge. Unfortunately, no one could be found.
I am sorry that I could not help you earlier. Another expert was already on it and I don't even get to see it.
Sorry you did not get better service from them you can email *****@******.*** for a refund.
