Just recently brought a Dlink DIR 300 router to set up on a cable modem (Telstraclear). What should have been an easy set up, hasn’t been so easy after all! Everything is connected and configured properly yet when I try to open IE it won’t load any pages at all. Ran the setup over an over, both from CD and the routers home page but still no luck. After calling Dlink support 3 times, they told me that it must be a wrong DNS. I knew it wasn't because I can connect the computer up to the modem directly and the internet works fine and dandy as it should. However I did check I had the right IP, Sub, Gate and DNS just to make sure.
Have upgraded the firmware, disabled firewalls etc. It says on the routers homepage that the internet is connected. Tried setting it up on another laptop as well. But still no joy. So I have no clue why. Was wondering if anyone here can offer a suggestion?
I have searched the forum but can’t find an answer. Im hoping that the modem isn’t defective and I have to return it.
Anyways, would appreciate any help!
