Reset router and now I can't connect! Help!!!

By Cawaii ·
I was recently having Internet problems so I reset the router (D-Link, DIR 655) and setup a new wireless network and now no computer or any wireless device can connect. I know it's not just the internet because I'm connected directly to my Hughes Modem right now and I have internet. We have two computers here; this one when connected to D-link will say it has internet access but the internet doesn't load. It

That's actually typical if the router is set for DHCP from the ISP and the router is providing DHCP and or DNS for the network.

Manually adding the DNS to the router would probably work but if the ISP changes it's DNS then obviously it will break. :)

Use the router as a simple switch

by macgvr In reply to Reset router and now I ca ...

If your satellite modem has a firewall, and I would expect it to, you may want to connect the modem to one of the lan ports on your router. You would need to turn off DHCP in the router and let the modem handle that. If the modem allows that and all the computers work, then all you really need is a switch and not a router. The only reason you might want a router is if you want a better firewall or you need to create firewall rules that the satellite modem can't handle. Given that the satellite modem has a firewall, (I hope it does), it will get tricky having one firewall behind another and creating access rules that actually work.

This should get wireless access working and you don't have to worry about getting the router configured to work with the modem. You won't need to replace your D-Link. Just use it as a switch instead of a router.

If you want to try to a static DNS that is not likely to change. Use either OpenDNS, IP address: 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220, or Google, Ip address: 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4

Your router problem

by geekmasterz In reply to Reset router and now I ca ...

Did you ever save the router settings after you had it configured the first time? That can be a life saver because you can let the router read the settings file. I assume you did not or you would have done this already. lots of comments above with good things to check. If it were me I would just go pick up another router and at least have some tech support then. Just my thoughts, YMMV.

Change the Router IP address and DHCP IP address range

by Yuvaaa In reply to Reset router and now I ca ...

From the output seen for the modem, it is the IP settings that should be changed on the router's interface.

To do that, connect the computers Ethernet port and router's ethernet port with a ethernet cable.

-- Open the IE or Firefox on the computer, type 192.168.0.1 and press enter. You might be asked for username and password. Do nothing but click "OK".

-- Once you have the router's interface, click "Network Settings" on the left side of the page.

-- Under Router Settings section, change the router IP address to 192.168.2.1

-- Under "DHCP Server Settings" section, change the "DHCP IP Address Range" to 192.168.2.100 to 192.168.2.150.

-- Now click "Save settings" at the top of the page.

===============

-- Now unplug the power cable from the router.

-- Connect the modems ethernet cable to router's WAN interface.

-- Connect the power cable to the router and check for the usual lights(Ethernet, WAN/Internet).

-- Now, open IE or firefox to access the routers interface.

-- Click status and check for the "Cable & Network status", Ip address and Default gateway.. etc. You should see Ip address as "192.168.0.X". If Yes, you should be online.

That's what I ultimately decided as well. Both the modem and the router were handing out 192.169.0.0/24 addresses, I'm pretty sure.

Make the 192.168.0.0/24, obviously.

D-Link Router

I do not know the exact date of the original post other thank July, so I hope you have already figured out the problem by now, but you can always call your internet service provider or D-link and they can troubleshoot over the phone. I recently had to do this and they both helped me to fix my connection issues. Hope that helps!
