Yesterday I bought a Dlink Media Router 2000 to replace a Linksys E3200 router. The E3200 was having problems maintain a solid connection for Netflix or online gaming in different parts of the house, so I was hoping this new router would be an improvement. I’ve been able to establish wireless connections to everything from my Iphone to my Xbox to the Wii, but nothing I do will make it allow my laptop on the internet if I do through an ethernet cable. Wireless is fine on the laptop, as is connecting the modem directly to the laptop, so I don’t think it’s a hardware problem on that end.
I’m wondering if I goofed the install, by not taking the time to uninstall the old router and reboot before switching everything over. Would that cause problems, and if so how would I fix it? The wireless connection is quite good but wired is always best.
