My preferred network is protected with a password. I was able to access that network last night. There are other laptops in the family that use that network. I do not want to use an unprotected default network. I want to use our families protected network.
As I said, under that advanced settings under preferred network our family's protected network is listed, but for some reason, my laptop will not link to it.
Please, perform the steps that I outlined above. I would like to verify that all the information that you have about your router is correct, before we begin.
Thank you greatly.
I cannot get the username blank. It says admin or user. It won't accept the password. I also cannot get the d-link to reset. It
What is the full model name of the Dlink router?
D-link 2XR. It has a small pinhole in the back to reset. I tried to insert a paperclip to no avail.
What is the Model name? The 2xr is not a model.
Wireless 180G MIMO DI-634 M
By default the password XXXXX XXXXX left blank
Does that let you login
Ok, great.Please, click the Wireless link on the left hand side.
Does the network name & password XXXXX up with what you have down for your records?
There is a lot of gobbledygook after MAC address. Nothing that make sense.
- Click on the Wireless button on the left side of the screen.
Do you have the correct information for the Network Name (SSID) and Password?
It has information about a MAC address and an IP address. Nothing that matches a network name or password.
Please, click the WIRELESS button
You are not currently, on the wireless page
Finally a screen with SSID labeled default.
Ok, change the SSID to your choice- For Security type, choose WPA PERSONAL- Enter a passcode and click the Apply settings buttonThe passcode will be your network password
It appears that your router was reset.
A reset it happen either by pressing the reset button or if there is a power surge and area.
OK. I will try it. Then how do I make sure my MACbook is recognizing the router? Do I reboot?
Once you change the network name and password XXXXX you must click the save settings button. Then wait 30 seconds and see if you can see the signal now.
It now says user account cannot reconfigure, so I need to start over using admin.
Does the router configuration page say that?
I need to reboot so I may lose you. I will log back on in a minute.
Ok, I will stand by.
The new default network with new passcode is listed and my macbook has just connected to the internet. Hooray! I am going to shut it down and see if it will still recognize the network when I restart it.
I will continue to stand by.
Do you have good news to report?
Bummer. I am once again having trouble getting on line. It asked for a passcode for the default network and then said my computer was unable to join because I entered an incorrect password XXXXX network name or I chose the wrong type of wireless security. I am about to go nuts here!
Safari can't find the server!!!
Did you change the network name? So it is not called Default anymore?
No, it is called default. Oh wait, the computer decided to get back online. I am going to try to restart one more time to make sure it doesn't have anymore "burps".
It may have just taken a moment.
I will stand by
Sorry about this. I am a computer illiterate.
No need to apologize.
I just want the #$%@&*!!! thing to work.
I understand your feeling ;)
I have been in your situation an uncountable number of times.
It would be nice if things, just worked.
Once again, very slow to tap into the network. It keeps searching and searching..... It never used to take this long.
When you turn it on for the first time, I always suggest leaving it alone for a good minute or so
The computer is on the default network with the new passcode and it supposedly is connected. Finally!! It is slower than hell!
Very good that it is online.
Is there anything else I can help you with tonight?
It continues to load like it is stuck. It still isn't right!!
Close Safari, and re-open it
I appreciated your help. It works but is interminably slow. It's not quite right.
It should be lightening fast. Still searching at present.
- Go to http://192.168.0.1- Click the Wireless link
- Change the Channel to channel 11 and click the Apply Settings buttonTest the speed once more.
It won't let me change the channel to 11. It is stuck on 6.
Ok, uncheck "AUTO" and do it.
Already did that. Now it works. It says for 11-G turbo mode, channel should be 6.
Disable the Turbo G mode please.
At least the computer likes that speed better because it is working. Once again, I will restart to see if everything's A-OK.
How do I disable that?
I am glad you chose to restart a few times.
Is the computer restarting?
Super G without Turbo? Is that what I should choose?
I had to reboot the router.
The MACbook still won't connect. How frustrating!!
How long has it been up?
Let's go back to the router page and change the Turbo Settings.
Set the SUPER G MODE to Disabled and save the settings
When I go to system preferences, under network, it goes to bluetooth. Then I get on Airport, click on default, the passcode is correct. I still can't connect. What am I doing wrong? The computer should recognize the network immediately without my having to prompt it every time!
What is the status of the wireless connection?
Now I can't get the Network page off the screen. It won't allow me to choose default any longer.
Airport is on but now will not connect to any network!!
Please, go back to the wireless configuration webpage and change the name of the wireless signal from default to something else.Also, set the super G mode to disabled and save all the settings
I want to stick needles in my eyes. How about you?
I feel your stress
Restarted the MAC. Still can't get online. Why is airport showing no IP address now?
Because it is not connected.
Now it is showing a connection.
Still unsuccessful. No internet. I think I will go watch the rest of the Packers/Falcons game. I am really frustrated. Thanks for your help. I will have to contact D-Link on Monday.
