I posted before, months ago, and could never get it working. I have configured a handful of routers over the years, and after I put in about 9 hours over a few days on this one, I gave up. But alas, my roommates are hounding me again for Wi-Fi, so I'm back.
It's a used D-Link DLI-600L Wi-Fi Router that was still in the box, but used for a few weeks.
Where I am:
I reset the router with the recessed reset button, just to start from scratch.
There is a default password on the bottom of the router, it is "C?nn3ctM3Up" (the second character is not a '?', but either a 0 with a slash, a 6 or an 8)
It is plugged in to my modem. At one point I could plug in to the back of the router and access the internet, I disconnected , then tried to connect through wifi, then was never able to get internet from hardwiring it again. I literally removed the cable, plugged it back in 1 minute later, and it just didn't work. I tried different wires, different laptop, nothing. I tried to connect to it and got "Oops! Google Chrome could not connect to 192.168.0.1
Try reloading: 192.168.0.1"
Now everytime I plug in to it, I click on Broadband Connection (Win7), and nothing happens. Usually when Im plugged in (in fact every time I ever plugged in to every other router/modem) I see an option to connect. Not this one, not anymore at least.
We are all wired to the cable modem as of now, and the wifi router is broadcasting a signal that we can all see.
I reset the router, tried to connect, it prompts me for a password.
I try all three possibilities from the bottom of the router. Nothing,
I enter "password" as some googling led me to believe this would work. Nothing.
I leave it blank as the guide suggests, it tells me the password should be at least 8 characters.
I just don't know what to do. I already trashed it once, but my roommate nabbed it and now it is back.
