Do I have to set up the whole thing again?
When I updated the firmware on mine it reset the router to default factory settings.
I just tried setting up the wireless settings but even though i can successfully set it up to WPA, my wireless card tries to connect but no dice.
When I set it into WEP, it hangs forever and it never connects.
Btw, my router is the WBR-2310 and the reason I updated the firmware is because it would often lose connection and reset it itself.
My wireless card is the DWL-G630. Both router and card are D-link.
Well I just updated the firmware to the latest and it completely fucked up my router. Its signal strength is slower and it can't even acknowledge 128 WEP security.
what a fucking joke of a firmware. Reverting back to old settings.
Well after further thinkering with it, this is a pos router. It worked fine when my parents used them because they hardly used the internet aside from web surfing and msn messaging.
Now that there are more people living here, it can't receive the load.
I had a linksys that did the same shit, wired to my desktop it was fine, wireless to the laptops or ps3 it'd drop the connection intermittently.
NetGear ProSafe is the only way to go. They're expensive, but the signal is turbodiesel and the case actually allows heat to escape.
I don't have money to spend on another router. I actually installed my old router and it does the same shit.
I don't understand why it does it. Wired it works, but wireless, it can't work for shit.
I am beginning to think its the shitty dsl connection.
This router has worked flawlessly with a 128kbps WEP secured connection at around 6mbps on Comcast cable.
Maybe the signal is not strong enough to broadcast a secured wireless connection. What is the fucking point then.
