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 www.google.com or any other site and see if you have connection at that level. It could very well be a browser issue.
