I just switched to a different router after the old one died. This router is being powered by the old routers power supply....same voltage but lower Ampage.

The old router was wired only whereas this 'new' router is wireless, hence the shortfall in current on the power supply. I am still only using a wire connection. They are both D-Link routers.

I can connect to the internet through the router which appears to power up fine but I cant find a way of accessing it's settings. I have tried all the usual suspects: 192.168.0.1 etc.

Here are the details of my connection

Physical Address: 00-0B-E0-F0-00-ED
IP Address: 82.21.101.111
Subnet Mask: 255.255.252.0
Default Gateway: 82.21.100.1
DHCP Server: 62.253.131.54
Lease Obtained: 27/05/2009 17:26:47
Lease Expires: 03/06/2009 15:40:57
DNS Servers: 194.168.4.100, 194.168.8.100
WINS Server:

I am just being routed directly to my ISP Gateway with no sign of my router.

I did a tracert to the default gateway above and there was no sign of the router.

Do you think the power supply is the issue?

Well, you should have the correct P/S, but that's not the problem here.

You have your broadband modem connected to one of the LAN/Network ports and not the correct WAN/Internet port on the router. Fix that and it'll work much better.

Thanks for the input, but the modem is already running to the WAN port and 2 PC's are going to the LAN ports.

Will only let one PC access the internet at a time and default gateway is still ISP's provided adress.

Still no way of accessing the router settings - if my PC is only device connected to router then I get limted/no connectivity.

Also, there is no sign of the network in Wireless connections. Perhaps because it cant power wireless? or perhaps the router is dead?

The following procedure should get you a connection with any broadband modem that is configured to use DHCP for the router connection, such as cable modems, and many DSL modems. If you require PPPoE configuration for the DSL modem, that will have to be configured to match the ISP requirements.

Note that the wireless encryption and channel selection will have to be done after the basic wired connection is established, the first step is to get wired connections working.


  • Reset the router to factory defaults by holding the reset button down for 15 seconds with power on.
  • Turn off everything, the modem, router, computer.
  • Connect the modem to the router's WAN/Internet port.
  • Connect the computer to one of the router's LAN/Network ports.
  • Turn on the modem, wait for a steady connect light.
  • Turn on the router, wait for two minutes.
  • Boot the computer.

When the computer is completely booted, let's see this.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

NOTE: For the items below in red surrounded with < >, see comments below for the actual information content, they are value substitutions from the previous command output!

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands one at a time, followed by the Enter key:

IPCONFIG /ALL

PING <computer_IP_address>

PING <default_gateway_address>

PING <dns_servers>

PING 206.190.60.37

PING yahoo.com

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
Paste the results in a message here.

<computer_IP_address> - The IP Address of your computer, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

<default_gateway_address> - The IP address of the Default Gateway, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

<dns_servers> - The IP address of the first (or only) address for DNS Servers, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.
