If you dont know your wpa network key try to reconfigure your wireless network again.

Access the configuration page of your router.

>If given the option to click on manaul wireless connection setup click on it.
>Once you have the wireles window
>try to change the network name to a new one and scroll down
>Under security choose WPA security (enhanced)
>Scroll down and under the Passphrase type in your new network password or security key and confirm it.
>Click on Save Settings
>If it asks you to reboot then reboot it, if not, its ok.

WBR 2310 Reset Switch

My D-link wbr 2310 router has never worked the way it should be. I always come to the point when would have to be reset by pressing and holding the reset sw in with a paper clip for 10 secs. Unfortunately I always come to realize that there is no switch, or the hole is blocked. So I called tech support couple of times, but they only tell me the same thing to type in 192.168.0.1 and do not understand that I tried this and all other possibilities a million times. The result always "The server at 192.168.0.1 is taking too long to respond." So last time I was so upset when tech support hung up the phone on me, so I went and opened the case and found the switch is factory blocked, (sealed) with black epoxy. Has anyone else found similar problem??? What should I do??? D-link tech support makes a habit out of hanging the phone up on me. The reason I think they do this intentionally, b/c for start they ask my phone number but they have never called me back so far. I am sick of it to keep calling them back and spend hours on the phone waiting.

Try this...
--Uninstall the d-link wizard software from your computer...if it actually installed.
--Shut down the computer and router...make sure they're connected together with the ethernet cable
--Turn on the router first.
--Turn on the computer
--Wait about 2 minutes after the computer starts up
--Go to the command prompt and type in the command "ipconfig". This will give you the computers ip address, subnet mask, and default gateway. To get to the command prompt, click on Start -- Run -- and then type "cmd" and click "Ok"
--The default gateway address should be the address of your router...typically it would be 192.168.0.1...but this will tell you if it's something else.
--If the ip address listed after the ipconfig command is blank or begins with 169.... then your computer is probably not talking to the router...the router or network cable may be defective.
--If the default gateway address is something other than 192.168.0.1 ...try that address in Internet Explorer to see if the router will respond properly. If the router responds, you can configure it directly without using the wizard software. Your D-link documentation (on disc?) will guide you through the manual setup procedure...sometimes referred to as the "alternative" procedure.
--Good luck...and I hope this helps!

D-link WBR-2310 has serious drop out problems

I recently bought and installed the WBR-2310 router and the it constantly loses conncetion. I have a westell modem and DSL. I disabled the PPOE on the westell modem, which allows the WBR-2310 to take over the PPOE function. I'm running version 1.05 on the router and I have reset the router and modem several times, it's a little better but the internet connection freezes or drops out frequently. Any ideas???

I'm pretty sure that downgrading the firmware to 1.0.3 will work. I had been running at this level for quite some time and for some reason I decided to upgrade to the latest version which started the problems for me. I am downgrading to this now and I expect better results. All of the firmware versions are available at http://www.dlink.com/products/support.asp?pid=470&sec=0. You pick the right hardware revision. PLEASE NOTE: Save off/remember your settings as when you change the firmware it resets all of them back to system defaults.

To change your router wireless security

  • Support site here http://www.dlink.com/products/?pid=470
  • User guide here http://www.dlink.com/products/?pid=WBR-2310&tab=3
Connect your PC to the router with a cable to one of the LAN connections - Now you need to Log into the setup of the router - to do that open a web browser, use Internet explorer (some routers setup pages do not work correctly with other browsers) In the browser address bar - 192.168.0.1 Enter the user name (admin) and your password. Leave the password blank by default. Now you can goto the wireless section or secruity section and set the type of encyption to WEP, WPA, WPA-PSK etc and then make up your own password. See Page 25 of the User Manual
On the PC Double click on the wireless connection in the system tray (bottom right hand side of screen) and then connect manually to your wireless signal - you will be asked for the password you set in the router.
Now you are connected.
You may need to remove any old wireless profiles you have on the PC/Laptops Wireless Profiles - Vista/Windows 7: http://mgmcc.forumotion.net/networking-tutorials-f17/removing-an-existing-wireless-profile-t109.htm http://www.tp-link.com/support/showfaq.asp?id=214 - delete the wireless profiles Start> control Panel> classic view> network and sharing center> manage wireless networks Delete the profiles you will then have to enter the wireless security key for any networks you connect to --------------- Wireless Profiles - XP http://mgmcc.forumotion.net/networking-tutorials-f17/removing-an-existing-wireless-profile-t109.htm http://www.tp-link.com/support/showfaq.asp?id=186 - delete the preferred networks start> control panel> network connections> right click on the wireless connection listed wireless networks tab in the preferred network list click on each one and - remove button
you will then have to enter the wireless security key for any networks you connect to

All the lights on my router are solid, it's not

All the lights on my router are solid, it's not connected to the PC, or any device, and the lights are still solid.

Ever since they went solid, no device would detect the router, I've held the reset button, and it does not respond.

It's D-Link WBR-2310... The installation disc has mysteriously disappeared...

To do a factory reset on a DLink router, press the tiny reset button in for a count of fifteen. Then, while you are still holding the reset, pull out the power and count to fifteen. Continue to hold the reset, and plug in the power for a final count of fifteen. Then release the reset button. All the lights should blink and respond normally. If this does not work, the router is no longer working and should be replaced.

Sounds like a defective modem/modem failure if, it does not reset or if you take all of the other wires out and just leave the power in and none of the other lights go off then that is definitely a defective mode, I suggest either returning the modem to where you purchased it from or calling D link it should be covered under there warranty for replacement.

Wireless connection keeps dropping after about a day.

After about a day of uptime, the wireless connection drops, and wireless devices report that the connection has "limited or no connectivity". All wired connections continue to work fine.

My router details:
Hardware version A1, firmware version 1.05

Here are my network settings:
DHCP server is enabled, range: 100 to 254

My desktop and my PS3 are my only wired devices and both have assigned IP addresses, the latter is necessary for NAT Type 2 for online play.

My advanced network settings:
UPnP enabled: CHECKED
WAN Ping respond enabled: CHECKED
WAN Port speed: 10/100Mbps Auto
Enable gaming mode: UNCHECKED
Enable multicast streams: UNCHECKED


Here are my wireless settings:
Enable Wireless : CHECKED
Wireless Channel : 11
Enable Auto Channel Scan : NOT CHECKED
Super G Mode : Super G without Turbo
Enable Extended Range Mode : NOT CHECKED
802.11g Only Mode : NOT CHECKED
Enable Hidden Wireless : NOT CHECKED (Also called the SSID Broadcast)

Security is set to WEP (for my Nintendo DS to use), but could be changed to WPA.

My advanced wireless settings:
TX Rates : Auto
Transmit Power: 100%
Beacon interval : 100 (msec, range:20~1000, default:100)
RTS Threshold : 2346 (range: 256~2346, default:2346)
Fragmentation : 2346 (range: 1500~2346, default:2346, even number only)
DTIM interval : 1 (range: 1~255, default:1)
Preamble Type : Short Preamble
CTS Mode : Auto
WMM Function: Disable

Most used wireless devices are my Wii and my laptop,both only stays connected for about a day.

Usually, I can tell that the wireless is dropped because the second light from the left, the "Wireless Transmission" light, stops blinking and stays constant on. Other times it's just off. In either case the wireless connection is dropped.

To restart the wireless, I just power cycle the router, but after a day or a bit more it drops again. This has been going for the past month or so, and I got this router up and running around February or March of 2008.

I can't seem to find anyone with a similar problem through Google, so hopefully someone can help.

I had the same problem (see Jan 09) but I found the solution:
I had trouble with the router resetting from time to time, that was fixed by upgrading to firmware 1.05. But I still had the wireless problem.
For me, disabling 'UPnP' (advanced->advanced network) and disabling turbo G mode (setup->wireless setting) did the trick.
Work great since then, both my laptop and my media center stays connected, going on one month now.
Hope it can helps other.
