It was a White Box purchase. Only cost $30.00. But the router itself wasn't even wrapped in something protective. All the parts were there but, except for the smaller ones, were loose in the box. It does have the latest firmware update. The enclosed cd had been used before.
In the past I've had good luck with white box stuff but this might be the last time I do it.
I can't configure the router.
I hook it up and enter the unit's ip address and then enter the user name.
And with that we come to a screeching halt. This unit will not let me get to the set up screen.
I've rebooted it and my modem and my pc numerous times. Also reset the router a few times.
Turned off all security hardware.
Still only get to the same point.
It downloads ever so slowly the first screen where you would choose what you were going to do next. Click run wizard and die of old age.
D-Link's canned email support told me to reset it. Not much help since I'd already done it.
I use cable broadband with XP Pro, SP2 with no problem when I'm not trying to set up my router.
I can use the internet while plugged onto the router but it's a little slower.
Am I doing something wrong or could this be a defective unit.
