    Re: Wireless Connectivity Problem

    Hi All,

    I am having a big problem setting up a wireless connection and something
    tells me its in settings. But as I am no expert in the least maybe someone
    could help me. I apologise for any crossposting as I am unsure what would be
    the perfect group for this. I have contacted D-Link Support but still no
    answer as yet.

    Equipment:

    Desktop Computer with Ethernet card in Home Office
    Momitsu 880N Media Player in Lounge (about 12 metres away)

    D-Link Equipment:

    D-Link DSL-G604T Wireless ADSL Router
    D-Link DWL-G810 High-Speed Wireless Bridge


    My Equipment page http://support.dlink.com/products/


    Description of functions:

    Via the Momitsu, I should be able to wirelessly view movies, photos, listen
    to music, etc. from the computer or connect to internet, etc. through the
    Momitsu back to my computer.

    I had this all set-up once, so I know it can work - but due to
    failing/changing equipment I cannot now get it to work again because of a
    setting up problem it seems.

    I have initially set-up the D-Link DSL-G604T Wireless ADSL Router through
    the Internet Explorer page using http://10.1.1.1 as stated in the user
    manual, with IP address set automatically.

    After this install and set-up, when now typing in the command prompt
    "ipconfig/all" - I get the following:

    Windows IP Configuration

    Host Name:......................(Computer name is here)
    Primary DNS Suffix:.......(Blank) <--- this just indicates there was nothing
    stated
    Node Type:.......................Unknown
    IP Routing Enabled:........No
    Wins Proxy Enabled:......No

    Ethernet Adaptor Local Area Connection:

    Connection specific DNS Suffix:.....(Blank)
    Description:............................Intel Pro/100 blah blah blah
    Physical Address:.................XX-XX-XX-XX-XX-XX <---- has
    letters/numbers here of course - typical for below too
    Dhcp Enabled:...........................Yes
    Autoconfiguration Enabled:...Yes
    IP Address:.............................10.1.1.x
    Subnet Mask:.........................255.0.0.x
    Default Gateway:...................10.1.1.x <----- Next 3 are identical
    DHCP Server:.........................10.1.1.x
    DNS Servers:.........................10.1.1.x
    Lease obtained:....................(Date & Time here)
    Lease Expires:......................(Date & Time here)

    I have set up for my ADSL connection and my internet works fine.

    I then attached the D-Link DWL-G810 High-Speed Wireless Bridge to one of the
    ports on the ADSL Router and power up.

    I then open IE and type in http://192.168.0.30 (as stated in the manual)
    in order to set up for the wireless connection to my computer.

    It will not open up a set-up page in any way!

    Even if I connect the G810 direct to the Computer Ethernet port to try it,
    it will still not connect.

    So I cannot set up the DWL- G810 to attach to the Momitsu to get any
    signals. I even borrowed a D-Link DWL-2100AP and this could not be set up
    either through a web page.

    Usually it just requires the IP address and the Mac designation of the
    computer/router pasting into the set up page of the DWL-G810 in order to
    eventually talk to the router/computer.

    I have run a long Ethernet cable from the ADSL Router port to the Momitsu
    Ethernet Port as a test and it works with no problems (automatically taking
    on the IP settings, etc.)

    I have no idea what to do next.

    So my questions are these:

    What am I doing wrong with this set-up?

    What must I do to have the ADSL working with my computer if any settings
    have to change?

    What must I do to ensure that the DWL-G810 when connected to the Momitsu
    will wirelessly talk with my Router/Computer? How do set it up through the
    above ADSL Router to accomplish this?

    Any help on this matter resolved as soon as possible would be appreciated.

    I apologise if this is a long message but felt as many details that I am
    aware of should be listed.

    Regards,

    FG

    This won't connect since your computer is on the network 10.0.0.0
    having received it's ip address etc. from the router.

    To configure this bridge device, set the pc (temporarily) to use a
    static ip address (say) 192.168.0.20 mask 255.255.255.0 to get a
    connection, then configure the device so that it is also on the
    10.0.0.0 network. Then change the pc back to receive its ip address
    automatically.
