D-Link DIR 635 Not Showing Up In List Of Networks?
Jan 25, 2011
I have problems with my D-Link DIR 635 router. It shows up fine in list of networks on my girlfriends Mac and on my new laptop, but on my older laptop it doesnt show up at all (whereas a lot of other networks do). Seeing as my current laptop is being repaired at the moment, I need to be able to connect to the net with my old laptop too.
I run Windows XP Professional on my laptop, which is a Compaq Presario f700. why the network doesnt show up?
I just got a DIR-655 and set it all up pretty easily. I have 6 wired and 3 wireless. All work fine and all are set to use DHCP. But if I go (in the router) to the Lan Computers list under Device Info, three devices (2 wired, 1 wireless) do not appear. I do have a switch added to the system, but of the three devices connected to it, 1 shows in th Lan Computers list and the other 2 do not.Since everything works, I'm mostly just curious why this is. Every previous router I've had showed everything correctly.
I have new DIR-615 D-link router. Since we installed it the network has disappeared randomly off the available networks list, and when I try and open Google Chrome it says there's DNS error. Troubleshooting through windows networks doesn't work because it can't find any problems since my network doesn't even show up on the list. We've even done a factory reset and the problem persists, and it does this about once a day. Resetting the router temporarily fixes the problem. This problem is happening on all 3 laptops in our home, two of which run windows 7 and one which runs XP.
Having trouble with the TP-Link WN722N that I bought from Newegg. It doesn't show any networks on my desktop that runs on Win7. Took the drivers straight from the CD. It works fine on my other laptops and desktop.
Have installed a TP-Link TL-WN722N wireless USB adapter.O/Sis Win XP SP3.Np options are showing for Wireless networks under Network Connections.Wireless Zero Conifguration is on.When I run a QSS app I can see neighbours network but not my own (My equipment doesn't support QSS) so the card and driver are working.
I just started having this problem yesterday. I was experiencing weird downloading/internet browsing issues and couldn't figure out what the problem was. I started looking around my router settings and noticed that in my DHCP Client list, my computer isn't in it. The router is hooked up to the computer, so it's not wireless. My phone and my girlfriend's laptop are listed, but the main computer isn't. It's especially causing problems with port forwarding. Downloads will stop because the port isn't showing as open. I'm running 64 bit Windows 7 and a Belkin N+ Wireless Router, model F5D8235-4.Firmware is up to date.
I am facing a problem since today as my WiFi is turned on, but i cannot view the list of networks that is available in my workplace. When i asked my colleague whether he could view the list in his laptop, he was able to. And also when i checked through my smart phone i was able to view a list of wireless networks. So it means there is some error in my laptop. I realised this when i tried creating a AD-HOC connection which eventually resulted in 'Windows cannot set up NETWORK NAME'. Why is it that i am not able to view the list of wireless network? And why can't i establish a AD-HOC connection?
I have a ASUS PCE-N13 card I am trying to connect to my N network. It is a Netgear WNDR3700 v2 running DD-WRT. It does not even show up in my list of networks, yet I see a neighbor's N network. I updated the drivers and I still do not see it. .
When I'm home I can get online but it's slow webstar. I used to be able to get online at the local McDonalds with free wi-fi, real fast. Now, the connection list doesn't show the "FREE McDonalds" connection.
I have: Atheros AR5B97 Wireless Network Adapter, Windows 7 on ACER Aspire 7741z-4815. It has been updating until recently, don't know if it's because I haven't been online as often or what.
I have an EA4500 and am using Cisco Connect Cloud software. Its working mostly fine except that I have one device on the network that will not show up in the device list. This is not an issue in itself and normally I would ignore (although it used to show up when I forst got the router) however..
The device is a WDTVLive media unit and required access to windows shares on a media server. Now the WDTVLive device is server an ip address by the router and is available from everywhere on my network but every couple of days it loses the capacity to search windows shares.
I know what you are thinking and I initially thought the same, this is an issue with the WDTVLive box. However one day I spent a few hours trying to resolve (Am an IT Consultant and know a little about networks) and found that I could not fix the issue. I then rebooted the router and it started working. I have since confirmed that every time it breaks I have to reboot the router.
Why is my WRT54g router only showing the 1st LED port is lit, and not the rest when I have changed or added a device to the 2nd,3rd,4th port? It is also stopping my ability to stream,view youtube etc. When I disconnect the router from my cable provided modem, everything works fine?
I have purchased E2500 and i am having following problems:
1. DHCP client list not showing - only shows when i reboot the router. After some time, the list never shows even when i press refresh button 2. I can only reserve IP when i reboot the router - after some time i cannot do this action also
I have upgraded to latest firmware and also peformed reset as directed by support.
I have a Wireless N router model F5D8236-4 v2 (01) with firmware 2.00.04 (Nov 12 2008 10:51:08) and it's not showing all issued wireless or Wired IP addresses in DHCP Client List.
They all have IP addresses and connect to the internet through the router, but in the router administration page, they're not listing. The Windows devices all show but most of the Mac devices are not, nor is my XBox 360.
My reason for investigating this is because the router seems to keep losing the Mac devices and a router reboot fixes it, but it shouldn't have this problem because all the Windows devices just seem to work.
According to the support page I have the latest available (dated November 12, 2008 which really seems kinda old to me for a Wireless N router). Are there any plans for a new firmware offering for this modem or have you already deprecated it as "legacy equipment"?
I've just installed windows xp pro sp 3 on my laptop and am going through installing the drivers for the problem devices. I've got everything installed minus the drivers for the sound card. I'm trying to connect to my wireless network and am not having much luck. I know the network is available because i'm on it right now sending this message. However with this new installation everytime i refresh i'm getting the "No wireless networks were found in range" message. I'm also not getting any yellow question marks in the device manager window for this device. I know the card works because it worked just fine with ubuntu before i wiped the hdd and installed xp ....
Windows XP on an older Dell Latitude. All wireless settings appear to be on, yet "no wireless networks are found in range" All other devices in the house see the same 3 networks (mine, mifi, and next door), so this is specific to this machine.
Also, I normally keep this laptop docked, 95% of the time, and earlier in the week disabled the wireless (right click on icon, disable) as I normally do when connected to the dock, since it seems to perform faster (no testing, just my opinion)
Other factors: The computer got undocked without normal undock procedure taking place.
Don't know if this is related, but the sound wasn't working either the last few days I have redocked, rebooted, restarted, checked every possible config I can think of, checked the router to be sure that my device was still listed, etc.
I have a desktop with windows Xp and I too have no wireless networks come up in the box on the right hand side, I know the wireless Linsky cisco wifi is working as I have connected it to another laptop with Vista, but have tried everything to get it wireless and nothing works the Desktop works fine when hard wired?
I had a wireless network set up between my Dell D630 and a Del XPS M1210 with IS and worked fine. Then we sold the XPS and got a E4300. I set up a wireless network on it with IS and it also worked fine. Both laptops running XP. The E4300 has SP3 and the D630 was set up with SP2 but I upgraded to SP3. The network was difficult to connect at times so I had to bypass the firewall to connect. Once connected, IS worked fineHowever, latetly it refused wireless connection even though the connection was visible. I have now tried to set up a new wireless between the 2 but it doesn't even show when I refresh the wireless connections in range.
I am having a setup problem with the RE1000. When I plug it in, my laptop is able to see it, and I'm able to access it and attempt to set it up. However, once I tell it how to connect to my main wireless router, and it attempts to log onto my wireless network, the RE1000 disappears from my list of networks. My blu-ray player also cannot see it.
Trying to create a wi fi zone in my apartment from my Virgin cable installation. Following their instructions on how to do this I can't succeed as the "view available Wireless networks" option does not appear on Windows XP
I bought new laptop ( inspiron N4050 ) 1 month ago, bought access point to make home wireless signal from my wired TP LINK router every thing went good that time, now I wanted to change my windows from win7 prof to win7 ultimate so I had to format the system partition, now the problem is in the drivers, everything I got it working. except the wifi .. the lap wont show any wifi networks around it .. any wifi which I can connect to, while my mobile shows about 4 wifi networks besides mine.
you may need to know that the wired internet port when I plug a wire into it , it works .. I mean the wired net is working and also the bluetooth is working, but wireless net is not showing any networks I can connect to.
I have a Netgear WNDR4500 running the stock firmware, acting as a router for my home. I also have 2 routers that are flashed with DD-WRT (Linksys WRT54G and Asus WL-520GU) running as client bridges. The Netgear is 192.168.1.1 and the other 2 client bridges are 192.168.1.2 and 192.168.10.3. The Netgear router is performing DHCP giving addresses from 192.168.10.100 to 192.168.10.254. I have numerous machines connected to the Netgear, wirelessly and wired, and numerous machines wired to each client bridge. All machines have IP addresses that are 192.168.10.100, 192.168.10.101, 192.168.10.102, etc... Everything is working fine, but I have one question: When I access the Netgear router, it shows the client bridges as clients, machines that are wired and wireless to the Netgear router are listed as clients, but the client list does not show any clients that are connected to the client bridges. I assumed that since the router is performing DHCP that all clients would show up.
It's kinda hard to keep "peckin" at the small numbers to go to the next page.Put this post where ever it needs to go but since I am in DIR-655, I put it here, because it's TOO AGGRAVATING to find the NEXT page.
Where the list of changes for the latest firmware version can be found? My new DIR-655 has firmware from May 2010, and I see the latest and greatest on the DLINK website is from September. But it doesn't state what the changes are, so I'm not sure if I should upgrade or not.
I have a DIR-615 router running FW version 3.01 with Hardware Version: C1 , my xbox is wired to my router. When I port forwarded, i had an strict nat, but had the best connection, but not by very much. When i put DMZ on, i had a strict nat, and the connection to other people was a bit better then UPnP.When i had UPnP on i had a open nat, i could barely be able to connect to anyone.what is a DHCP Reservations List?
i had the dir-655 with desktops and laptops running with xp and win 7, also some other devices such as ipod, iphone, ps3, xbox, problem occura with conflict of network ip address, i think xp and win 7 both login with the same network ip address. So I start to disconnect every device and try to connect each desktop and laptops, one by one, enabled the DHCP and reserve the network ip to avoid conflict. But here's the problem, when I connect the first computer with wired to the dir-655, can't find the computer in the DHCP list so I cannot do the reserve, I'm able to surf internet even I can see info with ipconfig. So I connected 1 wired and 2 wifi to the network, only 1 wifi network ip showing on the list, so I reserve that one, but after I refresh, the DHCP list is empty.
Ever since I updated my firmware to 1.01 my web interface for the network settings screen has been random. Somtimes it shows a DHCP reservation list, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes there are reservations, sometimes there are selectable radio buttons. I guess I'm just trying to figure out if this is a firmware issue or not. Ever since I updated the firmware it has been flakey.... But I was having issues with other stuff before that. When there are no reservations, sometimes i can't even select any computers because there aren't any in the drop down, when all of my hardware is online?
I have a setup using LogMeIn Hamachi and the network type creates a Windows Bridge. I also use the DHCP Reservations List to assign the same IP to specific devices. Well I have the MAC Address for my NIC in the list which works when I am not using the bridge. When using the bridge, of course the MAC address changes and when I try to add it to the list I get the following message in a popup window. The MAC Address is 02:e0:61:05:45:3e I have tried manually entering it, letting the router enter it from the list of computers and just to rule out something stupid, I have tried changing the letters to upper case and removing the colons.
Another issue I can see when this issue is resolved is that I do not believe it will let me add this reservation since I will be using the same IP used by another reservation. My DGL-4500 allowed this if I had the other reservations using the same IP disabled.Below these comments/rants are some feature requests. I have put them last as some of the requests are explained in the comment/rant section.I have read through this list and I have to say that after I purchased the router, which I ordered on-line, I was dreading it, but I have not had issues. It is possible that I am not using features that cause this issue. I believe the issues occur when using certain configurations with the "Enable Advanced DNS Service" enabled. I am not using this service. Since I knew people were having issue s with it, I wanted to see my results leaving that out. I have had this router running since a week before Christmas and I have many Virtual Server entires, QoS and port forwarding entries, https based remote administration, both 5GHz and 2.4GHz networks enabled supporting a/b/g/n(on both networks) and a guest network enabled on both bands all supporting WPA (TKIP and AES). I have 2 Giga wired connections that are always active, a 100Mb connection that is on an off but used almost daily, 2 Laptops that use the 2.4GHz network daily and one is 802.11g 54Mb and the other is 802.11n 150Mb and they are on at the same time almost daily, a printer that is on and used multiple times a week that uses 802.11g and a game system that uses 802.11a this device is used daily. Most devices are on and used at the same time daily and we have a good deal of regular Internet traffic and moderate other network traffic during these times. At night all computers are backed up over the network and most of the other network devices are off or not during this time. Other than having to reboot my Internet hardware provided by my ISP, I have not had issues. The router has been rebooted for config changes and I usually cycle it when I cycle the Internet hardware. Point is, so far no issues, good performance and it works and I have of course had other devices connected using the guest network and I have been testing features, performance, etc.
What's up with having so much variation in how features work across routers?e.g. My DHCP Reservation issue above. This router does not work with a setup like my DGL-4500.This router allows a preset amount of services like QoS and Virtual Server entries while the DGL-4500 just lets you add entries. Now maybe there is a limit and it just looks like there is no limit. Of course, there is at least a limit that is reached when you have used a certain amount of memory with the configuration.so many routers while leaving gaps and the lack of feature explanation and comparison?I switched to this router because I wanted a dual band setup which my DGL-4500 does not provide. That leads to the issue of the new way D-Link deals with dual-band. When I purchased the router it did not list that you had to choose 2.4GHz or 5GHz or it is not simultaneous dual-band. I was duped because I used to install DWL-7100AP for people that needed better wireless options for home businesses and small businesses and that provides simultaneous dual-band and back then if it was dual-band it was simultaneous. But I am disappointed in some of the features lost like WISH support and a few options here and there which do not seem like they are specific to gaming routers and this router is more on the mid range and low high range end of consumer, prosumer, home business and lower traffic small business routers, so why is it missing these features and why does it have the limitations I listed in the "variation in how features work" section above?
Other examples of lack of feature clarity are with Game Fuel, HD FUEL and Intelligent QoS. Isn't Game Fuel Intelligent QoS of some sort. Now from the example provided in the overview for the DGL-4500, Game Fuel optimizes game performance, but it does not say this is automatic or if it works along with the rules you set in the Game Fuel section which is the same as the QoS Engine section in the DIR-825. The difference is that the DIR-825 has a "Enable QoS Engine" option while the DGL-4500 has an "Enable Game Fuel" option. It seems that Intelligent QoS does what Game Fuel does, but expands that to VOIP, Media Streaming, etc. and it may be more automatic. HD Fuel in the only place I have seen it mentioned seems to refer to the combination of Intelligent QoS and the inclusion of 5GHz wireless support. Of course there is no version and feature documentation and in fact while the overview of the DIR-825 talks about gaming with Intelligent QoS, but if you bring up a comparison of routers, the chart has no in the gaming section for the DIR-825. I can't say I have noticed better or worse gaming performance with the DIR-825 compared with the DGL-4500, but given the shear lack of documentation on how to use Game Fuel and Intelligent QoS properly, who knows if I have this setup correctly. I will say the QoS Engine section in the DIR-825 is easier to use than the Game Fuel section in the DGL-4500.
1) The ability to reduce the brightness of the status lights, set them to solid if enabled with brightness options and to set them to off with an option to have some very faint light to show that the router is on. Of course I should be able to set different options to be applied at specific times.
2) Add the applicable features missing from the DIR-825 that are found in the DGL-4500 and applicable features from other routers. Also, get them all so they work the same on each router and let get the best from them all and make that the standard. e.g. In my DHCP reservation example above don't set the standard to the limitations of the DIR-825, but make the DGL-4500 function set or better function set of all routers combined for each feature the standard with-in router categories. e.g. the DIR-825, DGL-4500 and DIR-855 would be in the high end router category for consumer, prosumer, home business and lower traffic small business routers.
3) For DHCP reservations, you should not be limited to the DHCP IP Address Range.
4) On the log-in screen, get a better captcha and fix the tab order.
5) Add a log-out option in the web interface.
6) Allow for a next hop option in the DCHP server section. It would be cool, if there could be a list of IPs allows one to be enabled at a time.
7) Allow different DHCP server settings for each network. There are 5 on the DIR-825. Wired, 2.4GHz regular, 2.4GHz Guest, 5GHz regular and 5GHz Guest. Would be nice if you could set a couple of VLANs on the Ethernet ports and then have different DHCP setings for each VLAN.
For guest wireless networks, allow rules to be set to allow access to certain services on the network. E.g. I may want to allow printing. So allow a single port or multiple ports with easy settings for consecutive port ranges to be opened to an IP, IP range or all IPs and allow all ports for an IP or range of IPs. Of course, leave the allow full access option.
8a) Allow users to set rule sets that can be enabled/disabled like the full access option.
8b) Allow a control that can be set in the rule sets that controls if the wireless devices can talk to each other and another that controls if they can access devices on the wired network and another that controls if the wireless devices can access the Internet.
8c) Allow rules above to be limited to be applied to specific MAC Addresses.
8d) These options would be good to have for the non-guest wireless networks and wired network as well.
