Lost d-link access point I

  • Updated 3 weeks ago
I ran two ethernet switches off the white triangular gateway and have the wireless off. I do have a d-link wireless access point for my wife's tablet in another that she turns on from her wired laptop in that room. I used to have an arris surfboard cable modem with the same setup at our old place. She had a webpage on her desktop tha went there in seconds to the login page.
i put the address in in this new setup and the page just spins till it times out. What's different here ? How can I find it with this setup. Thanks. GBY

I think you will have to set up the d-link again. You said you have the wi-fi off on the VS Gateway so I assume you are connecting the d-link to the wireless on the wife's laptop?  So the laptop probably has a different IP address and a new Wireless AP network name with your new arrangement.

She has a wired laptop that she used to turn the the dlink wireless on/off for her tablet. So you mentioned "setup" does that mean take the ether cable out and re-plug it to dlink or power the dlink off/on. It has the power and ethernet lights on but the wireless light only comes on after it is toggled on. Thanks. GBY

Google the model number to find the manual.  All the setup instructions should be in there.  Basically, connect the laptop to the d-link and access the web based setup page.  you might have to power cycle both of them before you can access the page.
