D-Link DIR-825 :: Shareport Doesn't Work In Windows 8?
Feb 3, 2013
Recently I bought a Windows 8 (64bits) computer, which is now part of my home network, but it has problems with Shareport. The other computers can be easily connected to a USB printer on my DIR-825 (HW B1) router, but the W8 computer refuses to completely install Shareport (both the CD version and the latest download v1.17). I also tried Shareport-Plus v4.11 (found on the DIR 835 page), which did install correctly, but was still unable to see the USB printer. What can be done? Can D-Link provide a new version of Shareport?
I have hardware version B1, firmware version 2.00NA and several computers (wired & wireless) with Vista & Win 7 x64 and a Brother HL1440 printer.When I print something it comes out scrambled, images missing or cut off, empty pages, etc. This same setup worked fine when it was directly into one computer, then shared on the network though windows sharing. The problem was that computer had to be running to print off the network. I got the dir655 since it had printer sharing but so far its not been of any luck.
I realized that when I connect dir825 on bridging mode to my current voip router provided by my ISP (dvg-n5402) ,shareport does not work as it seems to be using the default gateway to find the usb, which in this case default gateway goes to the gateway of my voip router. Is there any way that I can make shareport use the gateway of my dir825 instead?
something has changed, and now SharePort is back to its old ... Text prints OK, but photos only print parts then eject the page and print some more psycho garble on the next page....etc...I have done all the uninstall - reinstall drills.... same result.... Just don't understand why it WAS working for a while, and what changed to make it un-work now.... The software looks to be working, but the actual output is foobar....
Region : Germany Model : TL-MR3040 Hardware Version : V1 Firmware Version : ISP :
Just got TL-MR3040 from amazon, not very happy that it is version 1, they could at least mention it in the description, but whatever...The problem is, i can not make it work with my PC laptop(thinkpad x120e with Windows 7 64 bit). Which means,1 not possible to get into web interface to configure it, and 2 if i configure it with old powerbook (os x 10.4) to share internet from usb stick, i can connect to it's wireless network but it doesn't share internet with my pc laptop,while mac and ipad working perfect...I've try to log in into web interface through the cable, still no luck...Not sure i want to re-install the whole system on my laptop just to see if it will change anything, it works with any other router, and usb sticks...
I installed a Micro Edition of Windows 7. Everything is going properly with it except the wireless internet connection (its driver is installed and working properly as shown in Device Manager), by click Connect and typing the PW, it tries for few minutes then fail in connecting putting a yellow small circle on the wireless icon in Task bar
Internet doesn't work on my laptop. after getting some worms that prevented me to open any programs, i did a recover from previous back up. but since then my internet doesn't work (with or without cable). wirelessly: my laptop says im connected to the router, but it says that i have no connection to internet. sometimes it says that i m connected to internet but even so when i try to open my browsers (ieplorer or firefox), it just says "unable to connect"With wire: when i trie to connect via a cable directly to the modem, it does the same thing, it says iam connected to the modem but i have limited access, and the browsers say that it can't open internet.i am using windows 7, have a dell computer and a belkin N1 wireless router, and using cable.i tried to restore the winsock using the netsh command, i used winsockxpfix, i used lspfix, i deleted my norton virus program, i reset my router to default, i deleted my cache-cookie-history from the browser, i think my driver are up to date, i check my manager device (they all work), nothing worked.
I have a desktop and laptop running Win 7 and a WRT54G router. The desktop has a cable connecting to the router, and the laptop is wireless. Both connect to the network and internet fine, but I can't get the Windows 7 homegroup thing to work. Ran thru the troubleshooter a few times and got nothing out of it.
I just got the laptop so I could do programming homework and I'd like to be able to keep things synced with subversion wirelessly. Worst comes to worst I can use a USB key but it seems silly to do that when both computers talk to the same router.
Im looking to create a home network with a wireless router.I have three machines, one computer is downstairs connected to the router with an ethernet cable, my other two machines are upstairs and connet to the internet wirelessly through the same router downstairs.I want to be able to connect to my upstairs computer with my laptop and access my files, i have an external hard drive connect to my computer and want to be able to back up to it from my laptop without removing cables.All three machines are running windows 7, the homegroup doesn't seem to work?
I recently upgraded to Windows 8 with my XPS 16. I know the Intel R 5150 is not working right with Windows 8 just like everyone else I've seen post on various sites when they upgraded. My concern is.. when is there gonna be an updated driver!? You would think if Windows was gonna make it available to upgrade your OS to 8 that they would have all this straitened out. Now I have to get rid of 8 just so I can have WiFi!
I have a Dell Inspiron 1300 which crashed, service tag . I was able to start it again using the Dell Operating System Reinstallation CD for XP Professional with SP1, that came with another computer. I then installed a Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3 and Internet Explorer 8. However the wifi (wireless) does not work. I went to setup and assured that it is enabled. I assume that I have lost the driver for it. Before the crash it had a working wireless connection. I need to know what driver to install to make it operate. Setup indicates that my computer has a MiniPCI card 1370 Broadcom Corp.
The latest driver is version 3.2.7 for Windows 7. I am still on the 18.104.22.168 driver which works fine for me. I just wanted to note that the 3.2.7 driver obtained from Windows Update doesn't work well, drops connections and takes longer to establish a connection. I've tried to update twice and each time I go back to the older driver.Can someone at Linksys examine the performance of this driver?
I have recently reinstalled windows vista on my dell inspiron 1525 laptop and now when I try to connect to the Internet It gives me the following message. "This computer does not have a wireless network adapter installed and configured" and it gives me the option to "Install wireless networking hardware, and verify that the correct drivers are loaded" . Where can I get this wireless networking hardware?, is it on a disk that came with the laptop or do I have to download it using another computer and manually install it on my laptop. I have already don't some research online and have download some drivers but can't seem to install them on my laptop.
I installed Windows 8 on my Dell laptop and my bluetooth device doesn't work properly. When Windows 7 was installed and my laptop and my Samsung Galaxy S3 were paired I could play songs from my phone on my computer. But now it is not possible on Windows 8.
hardware version D3, FW 4.10 and 4.11 same problem.
i tried with 4 wlan adapters: two of them support 802.11b/g, they always work find no matter which settings. the other two support 802.11b/g/n, as default "n" is enabled, so does DIR-615, both wlan adapters can be connected to DIR-615, they get their LAN-IP, but they can access neither DIR-615(no respone to ping) nor internet. but if i disable "n" mode either in the adapter or in DIR-615, everythin works fine, of course only with 54mbit max.
The DIR-825 wireless simply doesn't work. When I called tech support, we cleared some settings and hard-powered the unit on/off and it finally turned on the wireless radio. A couple weeks later I pull out my laptop to use in the house via wireless and the wireless on the DIR-825 is OFFLINE AGAIN...fallen and it can't get UP.Is anyone having issues with keeping their wireless online? OK - powered it off for 5 minutes...now the wireless is working. I think changing configuration settings causes the thing to lock up.
I can't get my brand new DCS-930L cam to connect to my network by using the WPA / WPA2 encryption. Works ok wired, with WEP or with no encryption enabled. Red led is on the front. I've tested sw version 1.02, 1.03 and the latest 1.04b03. Same result: WPA doesn't work. I have a Thomson TG789 Gateway/Router as provided by my ISP. All other units in the network works perfectly fine on WPA i.e. PC, Mac, printers, mobile phones etc etc.
I have a DSL router Pirelli PDF A1000G.I have a Linksys e3000 and I have a dap-1522.When I bought a dap-1522 I thought it could do access point in fact i saw many videos in dlinktv before choosing an access point from DIY with mike etc to youtube there are 2 videos one showing bridged mode and another ap mode!Now what happens is this I have upgraded from firmware 1.11 that came as default to 1.21 i connect it wired to my linksys e3000 when it is connected with the ethernet cable wired I can connect to the internet and navigate and open sites and my ps3 can connect to it but my range is not very good only 40%!
Now I bring it downstairs remove the ethernet cable and connect it to the power and then you can connect to it but since it isn't connected to my router which is upstairs i can't access websites neither can I play on my ps3!I don't know does only ap mode works when it is connected to the router wired because what happens is if you don't put ethernet cables in the back of the dap-1522 and just connect it to power then here doewnstairs you can connect to the dap-1522 my signal is like 87% but while I'm connected with my laptop I can't access websites and in the ps3 I can't connect!
and choose access points there are (4) listed: dap-1522, dap-1160, dap-1353 and dap-2553, I thought of buying dap-1522 because it could support abgn while 1160 only supports g and 1353 only supports n to repeat to signal here downstairs and be a good access point!
Edit I've found a work-around. It's on page 2: [URL]
I'm having this really weird issue with my DIR-655 revB. I have some port forwarding rules set up and externally they work fine. However, if I try connecting to my IP address using those same ports from a computer within my LAN, it won't connect.
Externally, I can ping my WAN address and connect through forwarded ports. No problems. Internally, pinging my WAN address apparently works (just now is the first time that's worked for me), however I can't access any of my computers using the WAN IP and port forwarded ports. I can access them by going directly to their hostnames or LAN IPs.
Things I've tried:
-Disabling/enabling firewalls on all computers involved
-Disabling/enabling QoS engine
-Disabling/enabling DNS relay
-Disabling/enabling Advanced DNS
-Adding custom nameservers from Google and Comodo
-Clearing DNS cache (I use a dynamic DNS name which works externally but not internally. This gets the correct IP internally and connecting directly to the IP doesn't work either.)
-Modifying the NAT Endpoint Filtering settings
I have an external DSL modem connected to the router using PPPoE if it matters.
The weird part is that it works externally but I've modified all of the values I can think of in the config with no luck. I upgraded to the DIR-655 from a DIR-615 which had all these settings in it and worked fine (until it started acting up which is why I replaced it).
Like others I see on this board, we've got middle- and high-school age kids whose access to FB and other sites needs to be controlled/scheduled.
I thought the DIR-655 was great, in that it has features that, on the face of it, would seem to be ideal for blocking domains and restricting access.
My problem: I've never been able to get this to work.
I've set up schedules and created lists of domains that I want to limit access to according to the schedules, but the only constraint I've ever gotten to stick is blocking access completely to the router.
*None* of the schedule-based or website-based access controls have ever worked; I'll put the block in place to my daughter's computer's MAC address so she shouldn't be able to get to youtube or facebook, save, bounce the router, but then I go by her room and she's still busily chatting away online to her FB friends.
Based on similar posts I've seen on this forum, this may not be a unique problem.
So in a nutshell, this is what I want to do:
1) Block certain computers (identifiable by MAC address)
2) from being able to get to particular named domains (and any of their sub-domains)
3) according to a schedule that I can create and modify.
My preference would be to do this in the router, but again, responses I've seen here suggest that may not be possible.

The problem is that Website Filer doesn't work if on STEP 3: SELECT MACHINE of Access Control the machine was selected by MAC address. When the machine was selected by IP everything is fine.The problem is that IP addresses are assigned dynamically, so how to make sure that the policy would be applied to the same machine?
I just got my DIR 825. It had 2.02NA Firmware in it. It had a few options that I wanted to use but didn't work. So I thought I would update firmware. I follow the instruction from dlink to install firmware. So I loaded 2.03 and noticed internet connection not working. So then I loaded 2.05 part1 and part2. Still could get internet connection to work but the reason to upgrade the option I wanted worked. So then I loaded 2.06 and still same result. No internet connection. So then I loaded the original firmware back in and internet connection works. Why doesn't the internet work on the other firmware updates. I got the updates from dlink website. I would like to update firmware
I had the website filter ON and it was working very well to block a few websites on a schedule. And after a few month, it doesn't work any more. While it is possible that I scewed up the setting , I have tried so many settings.
So:DIR655 fw 1.32NA,hw A3,"Enable access control" is on with the desktop MAC address (used copy this MAC)(I have also tried my laptop MAC),web site filter is set to "deny",the router time is set using NTP dlink server,
First off, my router is a D-Link DIR-655, firmware v2.07. I'm trying to port forward port 25565.
My port forward settings are this:
However, when I use this open port checker, it claims that I don't have that port open. It looks like this, without the blurred out parts:
Added note: The way I want to use it is by my IP (xxx.xxx.xxx.154:25565). I have the software installed to do so (I'm using a minecraft server, connecting through minecraft), but I can't enter my IP in the IP address field, it says that it's out of the range of the LAN.
I am using ASA5520 with webvpn for file sharing. But recently we just upgraded the OS that accommodate file shared folder from win2003 R2 32bit to windows server 2008 R2 64bit. Now I have a problem with accessing file share by ASA webvpn, it appears error contacting host, we have tested the file shared of webvpn on the other OS windows 2003 and windows 2008, they are working on these OS except win2008 R2. Current the ASA OS version is 8.0(2). And the windows firewall has been disabed.
I have disabled all antivirus and firewall services on my PC and I can't get Shareport icon to turn green and recognize my DIR-655 (Hardware Version A4, 1.21 firmware). I've uninstalled the Shareport software twice. I use AVAST (but all services are disabled).The router setting is set to "USB Network" with a 30 second time out. I'm running WinXP SP3, 802.11G only.
I tried to upgrade to 2.05NA several times and there always ends up being an issue that support is too sad to give the correct answer to and just puts a consumer thru "jumping thru hoops" and getting nowhere.2.05NA (actually started with 2.03NA) first caused a problem with limiting my upload speed to 1024mb. I happened across the fix on another forum and tried it and it worked. It was the default QoS setting D-Link changed after version 2.02NA and refuses to release a new firmware to fix this for everyone. Why they don't release a new FW that fixes the issue but keeps things promised on the package working is beyond me. Now, I purchased a D-Link DNS-323 and I finally got drives to fill it some time back. If 2.05NA is loaded, the Easy Search Utility will not connect to the NAS. I have tried the version the NAS came with AND the latest version offered. It will see the NAS upon 1st launch of the latest Easy Search Utility, but it will not connect and then it disappears if you relaunch the utility and won't return until a reboot. Bottom Line: it will not connect with 2.05NA loaded. It works fine with 2.02NA.
What is the setting that D-Link has screwed over here also that is causing this problem? It is pretty sad that their own hardware items won't play well together unless you run old FW. What setting D-Link changed that is making the D-Link DIR-825 not connect to the D-Link DNS-323 NAS when the DIR-825 has 2.05NA loaded. I have a DIR-825 Rev. B1 and a DNS-323 NAS with its latest firmware. I am using 2.02NA on the router since that is the only one that works and is the latest stable release(other than the DHCP reserve issue), no matter what D-Link wants to try to make people think. I won't try their support since they NEVER did give me the fix for the QoS upload issue and when I asked them to put it as a sticky in this forum when I found the answer somewhere else....well, there is no sticky as we all know. I would like to be able to have the DHCP Reserve issue working too, but I would like to connect to my NAS more at this point.
