D-Link® Wireless Router Installation
What are the advantages of a wireless router and problems arising while installing it?
The router is the device which connects an entire network to the Internet. It can also be used for connecting different computers within a network. Using a wireless router, you can avoid the hassle of using wires. Wireless router also has an added advantage of mobility. You can change the place of the router or focus the antenna of the router to get more connectivity in a special area. Installing a wireless router is comparatively easy than a wired router. You can use the driver disc to install the correct drivers for the D-Link router you have purchased. The system start up tray will show the wireless network status. The main issue in wireless router is that in a network all the computers will be connected but one of them will not. This is not caused due to network problem because all other devices are connected. The only way to fix it is to reinstall or upgrade the driver to the latest version. Interference issues are the main problem while using a wireless router. The devices which are in close proximity to the router will have more speed. If more than one wireless device is present in an area this also causes interference.
Following are the steps you need to take for installing a D-Link wireless router:
- Router configuration

After installing the drivers for the D-Link wireless network, you need to configure the router settings. After plugging the power cord to wall outlet, you can enter the D-Link router settings by using the default username and password 'admin'.
