Problem with Dlink DIR-412 wireless router

February 7, 2010 at 18:45:06
Specs: Windows XP
I've tried connecting the my modem (Dlink DIR-412 wireless router) on 3G mode through the ethernet port to my computer, which previously used a different modem that provides wireless network (the old modem was connected through the ethernet port as well since the computer doesn't have a wireless adapter). Although the icon on the computer says 'Local Area Connection Connected', I couldn't open any websites. (Note: the cable I used was different from the one that comes with the new modem, does it make a difference?)

I've then tried it with another computer (which used to connect to the net from the old modem through a wireless adapter) through the ethernet port and it works fine.

Can anyone identify the problem please?

I'm not really sure what 3G mode is. Does the router have cellular capabilities?

I would open command prompt, type in ipconfig, then hit enter. Here we will see if the PC is getting addressed properly. I would also check to see if the computer has an ip address statically assigned. I would also look under IE settings under the connections tab to see if a proxy server somehow got enabled.

Open command prompt and try to ping or any other site and see if you have connection at that level. It could very well be a browser issue.
