I am trying to setup D-Link DAP-1360 as a range extender, but am unable to see the device from my browser. The IP address is given to be 192.168.0.50. My router IP address is 192.168.1.1 and my PC IP address is 192.168.1.34. Please help.

Hi
First bring all the devices in same ip series so that it becomes easy for you to troubleshoot.

1.) Connect the range extender with cross/straight cable with PC lan card. Change the ip of your pc to match the ip ransge of extender.
2.) Open the extender in IE and bring it to same ransge as of Router.
3.) Put Securtity settings ( WEP / WPA PSK which ever is in Router ) in extender , so that when it powes on it automatically connects to wifi network.

The term is "subnet" not "IP series" The OP needs to put the range extender into the same subnet as the other devices. So you would want to use something like: 192.168.1.50

When you go to configure the device and you want to plug into it with a network cable, you need to use a regular network cable, not a crossover cable. Crossover cables are ONLY used when connecting like devices. Which is to say, computer to computer, switch to switch, etc.

How is mislabelling something in the one case, and giving incorrect information in the other helpful?

Many thanks for a prompt response to my plight. Your suggestion sounded very plausible, but I still have problem seeing the extender. I connected DAP-1360 to the LAN port on my laptop (Windows 7 Pro) using straight cable provided with the extender. IP on the laptop is set to 192.168.0.30 (unused) while the IP on DAP-1360 is specified to be 192.168.0.50 in its manual. DNS is set to 208.67.222.222. With this set up I still cannot see the device on my IE 9. Can you detect any error I might have made in the set up? Is there anything else I could try?

Something is definitely not right.

The first thing you need to do once your PC is connected to the extender is to check your TCP/IP settings. To do so, open a command prompt window (ie: Start >> Run >> type cmd and hit Enter) and perform the following command:

ipconfig /all

If your IP is not in the same subnet (192.168.0.XXX - where XXX is any number between 1 and 254 excluding the IP of the extender .50) then you will need to manually set it to one. You do want to use the same subnet mask in both cases (255.255.255.0). The DNS setting won't matter so don't worry about it.

Once both your PC's interface and the extender are in the same subnet, they will be able to communicate and you'll be able to get into the management interface using your web browser and then be able to change the extender to the correct TCP/IP settings.

Example TCP/IP settings:

Extender:
IP: 192.168.0.50
SM: 255.255.255.0

PC:
IP: 192.168.0.1
SM: 255.255.255.0

Many thanks for your help.

After DAP-1360 is connected to my laptop I can see the IP of my laptop which is 192.168.1.35 (using IPCONFIG), but not the IP of my DAP-1360, which I assume to be 192.168.0.50 as specified by the manufacturer. When I changed the IP of my laptop manually to 192.168.0.35, it also becomes visible, but still I cannot see the DAP-1360. Should I not see both IP through IPCONFIG even if they are not on the same subnet?

Many thanks.

You won't see the IP of another device on your local PC through ipconfig. All ipconfig can show you is any/all (enabled) network interfaces on the computer you run the command on

To test if the other device is there we use the ping command.

From a command prompt window try the following:

ping 192.168.0.50

If you get a proper reply then the device is there and you can then open your web browser and type that IP into the URL field of the browser and then connect to the devices management interface.

Many thanks for response. After connecting DAP-1360 at 192.168.0.50 does not response to PING as if it was not there. Hardware problem? I tried both straight and crossover cables, several cables. What else can I try?

Connect with a regular network cable. The router may be set to not respond to ICMP packets (ping) so attempt to connect to the device's management interface through the web browser.

If you can't, then try resetting it to factory defaults according to the procedure detailed in the manual you received with the device.

If you still can't get into it after all the above, call the manufacturer's support line and get their help.

If you still can't, exchange the device for a new one as it must be broken.

OK many thanks. I am going back to the supplier. I think there is something wrong with the hardware.

Many thanks in any case.
