- Wireless router question
Got a new D-Link wireless router….all working fine for internet access except I can’t login to it in order to manually change settings.
I can get the login page up using a web browser but the default login details don’t work. I’ve done a factory reset and used admin/admin as suggested but in doesn’t recognise them. I set the thing up using the CD and changed the PW to “admin”. Still no luck.
Any ideas?Posted 5 years agoCougarSubscriber
You’re definitely on you router and not next door’s, yes? Ie, you switch it off, you can’t get to the login screen?
Admin / blank is common for dLinks. Where are you getting admin / admin from? Have you RTFM / checked on stickers under the router?
Try wired rather than wireless?Posted 5 years ago
it’s a dsl-2740R
yes – i’m def connecting to the internet via my own router both via wifi and cable from a desk top
sticker on the bottom of it says admin/admin for login deatils. I have also tried admin/[blank]
There is a firmware update but I can’t install it as you need to login to the router to do this.
I’ve put a request in to their support but not heard back yet.
will try another browser when I get home tonight. Like I say, I can access the internet with it and the wireless is really good all around the house, just that i don’t like not being able to access it to change settings.
One other interesting point: the previous router was always visible under “my network places”, but this is not the case with the new d-link, which is only visible sometimes. This has no baring on interrnet performance or ability to login to the router.Posted 5 years agogreebleMember
