Dell XPS 13 9370 (2018) review
I am trying to install a D-Link G604T Wireless Router in my Girlfriend's Dads's house.
He is currently using a Windows Xp Service Pack 2 OS with plenty of RAM etc...
He bought a COMPOINT PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter (Realtek 8139) as he has not got an Ethernet port present.
I fitted and installed this adapter and it seems to have installed fine, it is viewable in Device Manager and in properties it says it is working correctly.
I plugged the Router in and powered it up, the Power and Status lights appear to be flashing in the correct manner.
In port 1 on the router I have an Ethernet cable running into the Ethernet Adapter on the PC, and the ADSL cable from the telephone line running into the Router.
I know from reading the manual that the IP address for the router is 192.168.1.1
I tired to type this in to Internet Explorer, and I got the page cannot be displayed message.
So I checked in Network Connections (Control Pannel) and could'nt see it there either.
So I am not sure if the Adapter is faulty or not working.
With this is mind I had 2 options the first being, I have a D-Link USB Wireless Adapter (DWL-G122 B1)and connected it to the PC, the PC found it but said there were no wireless networks in range.
So with one last option I searched for networks with my iPhone, and behold I found the router and was able to connect to it.
Which leaves me wondering that is going on?!?!?!
Currently he uses a BT line with BT TalkTalk, this uses a SmartAX MT882 Modem and connects via USB.
I know that I have to changed the setting on the D-Link router but i cant even bring up the login page,
Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated here
