Preferred Solution: are you using dgl-4500 firmware 1.02 or 1.12 ?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

The short version of the story: D-Link released a new firmware a few weeks ago for their flagship DGL-4500 Gaming Router, the main feature of which seems to be that every couple of days the router grinds to a halt and requires a reboot.

D-Link haven't even apologised for the chaos this has caused to their users, and we're all still waiting for a fix.

Here's the thread over at D-Link:

I am trying to coble together two non-working Zen Xtras into a working one. I receive a message: "Firmware Problem," and am instructed to reload the firmware. When I attempt to do so, the firware does not recognize the device although the device shows up in My Computer as a Zen Xtra. I have reloaded the drivers. When I attempt to reinstall the firmware, it states that it cannot detect the device and please connect it now. How do I resolve this lack of recognition?

Is it possible to replace a routers firmware w/ something other than the original firmware to update from wep encryption to wpa encryption and all the other features that these new routers have? If so is this hard to do and is there a big risk or really screwing things up?

Answer:Replacing router Firmware w/ third party Firmware?

nope its easy, and as long as your smart and follow the few basic guildlines very unlikely chance of damaging the router. Biggest suggestion is never do the update via wireless as if you loss signal or what not could loose a bit of data for the router update.

Question: DGL-4500

So.. my old d-link 624 died and I got the DGL-4500.
One thing I was hoping to see is improved signal on my HTPC. It has d-link g wireless card and the signal was Low. When I transferred files between machines on my network, the network utilization on HTPC would show only ~7% of 54G... So I got the DGL-4500 and nothing changed!! signal is still Low and still same ~7%!
Same goes for my laptop signal wise.
Am I missing something?

As for the DGL-4500:
Pros: Looks cool
running uTorrent does not seem to affect pings in games.

Cons: It reboots few time a day


Prolly need a Wireles N card to see any difference..Also limited to your bandwith at the wall..

I am a university student living at home. Our home network uses a WRT54GS or GL or something, using the default firmware, and it falls to pieces under any sort of torrent traffic. I'd flash it to DD-WRT, but my father won't allow it (he fears bricking the router). His house, his rules. However, he is not against upgrading to a new router as long as I pay for it.

I'm looking for torrent-handling and QoS. My PC is wired, and the rest of our PCs and devices are 802.11g, so the DGL-4300 would do it, but that offers no possiblity to upgrade to 802.11n devices in the future.

As I understand it, that leaves the DIR-655 and the DGL-4500 as popular choices. What advantages does GameFuel give over the 655's QoS? Will MIMO or 'dual-band' do anything to improve 802.11g connectivity? Is there still any reason to 'hold out' on wireless n?

Answer:DGL-4500 or DIR-655?

Not exacltly answering your question, but throwing another suggestion.

I absolutely love the Buffalo WHR-HP-G54 routers. I've sold roughly 500 of them to my clients and have only had 3 come back to me all from the same location that had bad power supplies. Since it's yours you can also upgrade it to DDWRT to handle your QoS needs and mimo.

Wireless N isn't all that it's cracked up to be IMO.

If you can't find a good price... PM me I just purchased 50 of them to have in stock since the company is going through that whole BS legal wifi routing and was forced to shut down sales. If you want I can even pre-flash it for you if you're unsure of yourself.

Hello folks,

I just picked up a DGL-4500 to replace my DIR-615 which was working well enough, but I figured I could bump up my wireless range/speed as well as my LIVE connection at once.

The problem is that for some reason, my DGL just won't be seen by my PowerMac G5 when connected via hardwire for longer than a couple seconds. At best I'll get a constant cycle between being connected and my G5 thinking the ethernet cable isn't plugged it. I don't have Airport built into my G5 so I'm unable to test that.

I've been able to connect to the DGL wirelessly from my Intel MacBook with no issue (allowing me to upgrade the FW to 1.01) and I've even connected from my MacBook via a hardwire connection which I won't ever do, but just wanted to test to verify it was possible.

It's really strange because the DIR-615 has been totally fine connected to my G5 and is once again. I've used the exact same gear minus the AC adapter to no avail, tried multiple resets/power-cycles and alternate cables just in case etc.

The box states the DGL works with Mac OS X 10.4 or higher. I'm running 10.4.11 on both machines, just optimized for different processors. D-Link tech support was quick to get me off the phone since their hardware does actually work, just not with my G5 I guess.

So my acer 4502 lmi hd ended up being corrupted. In such i ordered a new hd 100g , the original was 80 and put that in. Now i then had to order from Acer the recovery AND system cds. I then followed the directions put in the system cd then the 2 recovery cds in which it told me to put in the system cd again. I put that in it tells me that the hd is fully recoverd and i can take out the cd and just boot again. Upon which the the computer boots , but it says no operating system found and just stays at that screen. The only thing possible i could guess is becuse i installed a bigger hard drive , but to me that makes no sense how big it is because im just reinstalling the files to put my laptop back to the base state.

help is much needed

Answer:Acer 4500 help

It wont work. Since you switched the hard drive you dont have anything on there. The recovery disc wont work since there is nothing to recover.

You have to get a XP CD and install XP fresh again. You cant recover something that isnt there.

Hi guys, just a little simple question to confirm my thoughts.

If I buy a DGL-4500 Xtreme N Dual Band Gaming Router and a notebook usb adapter (DWA-160) I will be good to go? Or I need a Wireless Card like the DWA-652?
Yes I have a built-in Wireless card on my notebook, but is 802.11g only not N, does the DWA-160 will make my computer run the N wireless mode?

Sorry there are two questions here

Anyway, I'm pretty advanced with network stuffs but, I'm noob at this one hehe!

(No I don't want the DIR-855, no money!)

Answer:D-Link DGL-4500 and DWA-160

The D-link DGL-4500 has been tested for compatiblity with Windows 7 so it should work fine for you.

The D-link DWA-652 doesn't show up as tested with Win 7 but can run wireless N. Test to find out if it works or not but it hasn't been officially tested to work with Win 7 yet.

Your D-link DWA-160 is capible of running Wireless N but the problem is that it hasn't been tested for compatibility with Windows 7. So there is a good chance that it may not work correctly for you. Test it and find out if it works or not. If it's not working you know the reason why.

I am going to be picking up one of these routers either today or tomorrow. I know the current issue with there firmware update on the 4500 so if I do go that route, I simply wont upgrade the firmware until that whole situation is dealt with, I caught wind of the 825 while looking up reviews & user feedback of the 4500. What I'm really looking for is if there is any MAJOR differences between the two. I plan to wire connect my desktop to the router & my laptop, Xbox 360, PS3 & Wii will operate on the router via wireless. I've notice that the 825 is up to $60 cheaper depending on where I purchase it & that's a nice amount of saving.

I went to the official forums but being that it doesn't have to many regular members, most of the topics have surrounded the 4500 & the issues that it is having. I'll continue to research the two on my end but at about 5:00pm EST, 6 hours from now, I'll be running to best buy to pick one up. Yes, I know about Newegg & all of the other e-tailers but I have a hook up there so I'll be getting either one at near the same value as if it was purchased online. I'm just looking at any key features that the routers have that I might of missed & that would justify the higher price tag of the 4500. Thanx in advance guys =).

Note: You can always recommend another router to. I'm not strictly a D-Link fan but the two models mentioned seem to best out the other models I've seen them... Read more

Answer:D-Link DIR-825 or DGL-4500

Take a look at the Netgear WNDR-3700 instead.

I've been a loyal DLink customer for about 5 years now. That's over given the way they have screwed everyone with a DGL-4500 with the new firmware update.

After a few rounds of emails with their support, I went looking for the next best non-DLink router, and from a performance standpoint the Netgear was it.

I've had it for a week or so and I'm very happy with it. It's also cheaper than most high end routers.

Question: WNDR 4500

Anyone have one yet?

I'm interested to hear from someone that had a WNDR 3700, as I do, and replaced it with a 4500 and whether it was worth the upgrade.

I can always use the 3700 as a wireless repeater in the living room, where I kinda need one anyway.

I've read a few disturbing notes about wired Lan instability.

Answer:WNDR 4500

Can't speak for the 4500, but I recently had a very bad experience with the WNDR4000 and several other 450 Mbps routers (see thread here

Simply put, none of them performed as well as the WNDR3700 I had previously, so bad in fact, that I went back to the 3700. The advertised 450Mps speed was a joke, none of them got anywhere near that, they also had worse range than the WNDR3700, and they all kept dropping connections.

Maybe it's my particular environment, and your experience may differ, but I personally find the WNDR3700 to be the best performing N router I've ever used.

Ok here lies the dilema...

I have been succussfully using the dir-655 for some time now. 1 wired pc, 1 wired home server, 4 wireless pc's and wireless xbox 360 (BTW all b/g) and the only issue that I have is when my kid is on xbl and I try to grab files he lags enough to hinder gameplay.

So I jumped on that deal for the dgl-4500 and according to the reviews the dgl-4500 will prioritize gameplay and fix that, but to configure all these devises...what a pain!

I guess what i am asking is other than the game play and until I go all wireless N, is this worth the hassle or should I just sell it and wait for the next latest and greatest.

again I already have both routers, but currently using the dir-655, the dgl-4500 still in plastic.

Answer:switch dir-655 to dgl-4500?

Both routers have QoS features but the "Gamefuel 2" optimizations (built-in game-specific QoS settings) in the DGL-4500 may make it worth the effort, specifically because you are concerned about XBL lagging. If it were the other way around, it would not be worth it.

I just purchased a 1TB USB backup drive and hooked it up to my DGL-4500 router USB port. I didn't know you needed a driver to connect to the device to do backups. I was wondering if there is an automated way to connect to the drive using the shareport utility at a certain time just before my backup utility runs? For instance, if the backup utility runs, and the shareport isn't connected to the drive, the backup fails, which is fine, so its no big deal, but I would like to get this more automated.

BTW, the performance is actually really good across this USB port on the router. I backed up my PC, which isn't much like 100GB or so, in like 30 minutes. The restore feature in Win7 rocks as well, as I tested it out on a spare hard drive.

is the upgrade from DGL-4300 to DGL-4500 worth it, aside from the firmware issues?

Answer:D-Link DGL-4300 to DGL-4500

I didn't think so. I had a DGL-4300 that I used for a number of years and instead of upgrading to the 4500 I got an Asus RT-N16 and put DD-WRT on it. With Optware I can run a BT client from a hard drive or flash drive connected to the router. I have had the asus router for about 3 months now and have had no problems.

Hello all,
We have an old HP 4500 color laserjet printer with a jetdirect 600N printserver card. Recently I went away and when I came back we had a new printer and the 4500 was on a shelf because no one could print to it anymore. An outside computer guy was called in, he said that there was a switch inside that was broken and that it wasnt worth fixing. I thought "a switch"? The only thing i can think of is that the jetdirect card has gone bad. I dont really know much about the printer, except that it was working fine when I left. Does anyone have any thoughts on what could be wrong with it other than the card? I found one online for 50 bucks with a warranty and its returnable, I just can't scrap a printer that I think can still work fine.

Thanks for the help,

Answer:HP 4500 laserjet question

Does it have a parallel port on the back? If so, load it on a local workstation and try it. If it works, change the ip of the printer (if need be) and try it again. It may have just lost it's network settings. Was it statically assigned? Reserved address? or just dhcp?

OK, so in a nut shell I have been having issues with the HP 4500 from the start. First the wireless stopped working, then my comp. would not recolonize the printer at all. So I uninstalled everything and reinstalled everything twice.
At this point;
The printer is set up on my home wireless network( I did it manually on the printer, my wireless is Apple Airport) but the link to my comp. is not there.
The computer, while trying to reinstall, will not recolonize the USB at all, so I can not finish the driver/software install, although I can print when the USB is plugged in.
Any advice would be much appreciated, also if it turns out that this printer is F.U.B.O.A.R., any ideas about what is a great/inexpensive all-in-one printer will help too.

Hello all,
I'm back. Dealing with the same printer.
Some time ago I posted in here and it was very helpful in getting this to run. But things have changed on my system and I have not been able to get it running since.

I have a dinosaur Laserjet 4500 which I am trying to figure out how to get it to work on my G5. The printer does not have a USB connection, just a network cord or regular printer port.I have a Powermac G5, OSX 10.4.11 . At present the only network port on the Mac is connected to a Qwest DSL modem.

I'd like to avoid using a router if possible. If it's the only way, I will plug and unplug it as needed but I prefer a direct connection. Is this possible?

Would someone be willing to walk me through how to do this now that my system has changed? As far as what's changed, it's hard to say. I"ve changed internet services and the guys installing it probably made some changes, and I've also done an archive and install, and also have probably made changes tinkering around trying to figure out how to make the printer work.

I"m posting this in the networking forum because it's likely going to involve ip numbers and God-knows-what-else. So it's more than just a printer problem. And these are the people who helped before.

I have no idea what to do, I'm not a networking person and I hate, hate, (did I say hate?) dealing with hooking up printers. And they hate me. They really do. They never work.

I recently bought Hp officejet 4500, tried to install it on windows7x32 several times with no luck.
Unfortunately, I am not getting sufficient support from HP.
During installation it did not detect usb connection, sometimes detect wired network connection sometimes Not !!!.
Changed printer cables, changing usb plugin location also with no luck, no problem if it works on network will be sufficient as my daughter needs it for school then I will figure how to get it worked using usb.

I have been using a D-Link Xtreme N Gaming Router now for some time with our laptops. The Wireless Router is set to transmit in mixed mode, which sends the signal out in Wireless N, g/b. I have two laptops. Both currently receive the wireless g/b signal from the router with the built-in adapters. I bought a D-Link DWA-643 Wireless N expresscard/34 for one of the laptops (a Sony) to try and utilize the faster and more strong signal provided by the router's wireless N capability. I had some initial issues with installing the drivers to the DWA-643 wireless N adapter, but was able to download and install the Vista driver for the Sony laptop. This adapter has been available for over a year so it is frustrating that D-Link still doesn't include the Vista drivers on the provided installation CD. I can get the DWA-643 Wireless N adapter to work and connect with the internet, but the speed is only 54Mbps - the same as the internal Intel Proset adapter. I usually to to device manager on the laptop and disable the DWA-643 internal adapter. I have called D-Link's tech support now twice and they are no help at all. I got the feeling during my second call to D-Link that I might have known more than the tech support person. At the end of the call the tech support person actually suggested I return the expresscard! How can I get this wireless N expresscard adapter to function closer to the advertised speed of 300Mbps and to be more reliable?

I am not sure if this is a problem with my video card or with some programs. In any event, hopefully someone has some ideas.
I built my system a few months ago, and on occasion when running a 3D program it would lock up, and then restart, or just lock up. Originally, I thought it was the processor over heating, so I upgraded the fan, and that helped, but it still would lock up. Then I had no problems, other than if the system had been on for over 12 hours you needed to expect to restart the system before you play any games needing a 3D accelerator.
Now when I try to start up a program needing a 3D accelerator, it says that I do not have one installed on my computer, or it the monitor will go blank, and go into a powered down setting.
Also, when I start up my computer without being logged in, the screen will shut off, yet Windows will boot up, and all the sounds work.
I then log off that, and into my own profile, and the monitor works fine for windows, but the 3D capabilities still aren't there.
I have checked for updated drivers, but no luck there. and I ran DXdiag, and checked display, ran the tests, and problems occurred.

Intel still hasn't updated their web site, with respect to which of their older boards might be compatible with their newly released processors. I was scoping the new Allendale 4500 Which is 2.2 Ghz and since I probably won't need virtualization this could be a nice chip for my G965WHMK Intel media board. Is the 4500 merely supposed to be a faster chip than the other 2 (43 & 4400) or is it intended to go with the new chipsets (G33 and/or P35). The FSB is still 800Mhz nonetheless.

The story below is kind of long but it is more detailed than the 'long story short'.

Long story short:
- Linksys router crapped out
- Bought a D'Link DGL-4500
- Internet works, gaming doesn't work nearly as well as before
- All settings on factory default with latest firmware

Also, before anybody asks, yes, I have to have a wireless router because even though I use a desktop, my sister has a notebook here that she uses.

A few days ago, my Linksys BEFW11S4 Version 4 wireless router began to do what nearly all Linksys routers are known to do and began to drop my internet connection every fifteen to twenty minutes. After having done everything I could possibly find on it to try and fix it, still to no avail, I began to look at other routers to buy. Being big into gaming, I play in multiple leagues for Counter-Strike: Source and Call of Duty 4, I began to look for something that would last me for a long time and wouldn't interfere with online play. Thanks to Best Buy, the model of router I wanted wasn't available and so one thing led to another and I ended up buying the D'Link DGL-4500 wireless router.

I set everything up with the router, turned my computer back on, used the quick-connection disk to get the router set up, and was able to get on the internet without any problems. My internet connection dropped once and so I installed the v1.20 firmware which caused all connection drops to cease. Once that was all done, I began to... Read more

Anyhow I've had a DLink DGL-4500, working great up to today. Now it keeps disconnecting all my wireless clients. Anyone having this problem? Its very strange.

Answer:DGL-4500 Suddenly Disconnecting

You are probably under attack by a not very experienced wireless hacker. Deauthenticating the clients is a common techinque to catch ARP requests and reinject them in the network, but that sounds already too clever. A real hacker never deauthenticates more than a couple machines, if you go steal you'd better go stealth.

If you have WPA or WPA2 you are safe just by changing key every week (if it is possible). If you have WEP you already have a new guy keeping you company in surfing the net. Best wishes!

First off, please consider me as a "civilian" in the field of computing. I know what a motherboard is, for example, but if you refer to it as a "mobo" I might not get it. That kind of thing.
Alright, that disclaimer aside, I have a Dell Dimension 4500 that my parents purchased for me back in 2002 (I am a college student). It came with 128 RAM, which I knew even then was low, but it was in the price range. I have been noticing lately that there have been a higher frequency of crashes, and my computer has a hard time running certain programs quickly, or at the same time another program is running (like SIMcity by itself, or three browser windows, etc.)
So I should upgrade my RAM, right? And how do I go about doing this myself, and how much should I get? I am a student, remember! =) If anyone wants to help, I'd appreciate it!! Also, if I have a problem with my cd-r drive not recognizing a blank recordable disc, do I need to post that problem on another thread?

Answer:Want to upgrade RAM on Dell Dimension 4500

Welcome to the forums.......
Well, 128Mb these days is pretty low. In fact, its the bare, bare minimun you should have. Replacing the RAM is pretty simple. You just have to open up your case, and find the "stick" of RAM. You will almost immediately notice it, because its thin and kind of long.

I would suggest you get a 512MB module in addition to your 128Mb one. It will total 640Mb of RAM which is pretty good. I would recommend a Dual Channel setup, but since you aren't very familiar with computers, that would just confuse you, and we don't want that.

I recommend this RAM for you:

It is very cheap (it has a mail in rebate at the moment) so the final cost is about $32. Keep in mind that OCZ is a very well known and reputable company (which is why I recommended it to you) and they have a lifetime warranty so that you sleep soundly knowing that nothing will happen. Good Luck, and post with any other questions that you might want answered.

CD-R drives are so inexpensive these days that its not even worth it to try and repair it. Just get a new one and install it. The installation is a bit more involved, so get back to us if you need any help/advice.

This started happening about 2 weeks ago (might be after I did the latest firmware update).

Router: DGL-4500 (latest firmware)
Internet: Verizon Fios
Hardwired (symptoms on both wireless and wired)

This is hard to explain, but I will try. This had happened to me 3 times in total in the last 2 weeks, my internet speed crashes to almost nonexistent.

What's strange is I can be playing an online game and using VIP program like Ventrilo and be fully connected to it, but my internet browser would ether not load at all or work very very slow. I tried checking for internet speed, but it wouldn't even start.

Simple restarting the router does nothing. Unplugging from power also has no effect. When I was on the Phone with Verizon rep (FIOS) she want very helpful, but after lots of procedures I was able to get it to work normally however what exactly was done to fix it was inconclusive.

I am currently on hold for a FIOS rep because I have this issue right now again, hopefully they can fix it once more. My brother's PC also has the same problem so it's not just my PC.

I was thinking about splitting the signal from the source with a motorola signal booster then going dedicated to my DGL 4500 router and sending the other dedicated signal to the Actiiontec router for the HDTV or directly to the TV set top box.

Can this be done?

I don't want to use the FIOS router.

Answer:FIOS ISP + HDTV and Dlink DGL 4500 ???

You will need to use the FiOS router for the HD set top boxes (which also means DHCP), and as a gateway for your internet. What most people do is disable the FiOS router's wireless, and use another brand for WiFi.

In January I bought a Canon IP4500. As aprinter it works well - when it works.Increasingly it will stop, giving an error message saying that a cartridge cannot be recognised. Usually removing and reseating the cartridge solves the problem. Yesterday halfway through a print job it stopped saying that the BK cartridge was not recognised. Reseated that and then received message that the Magenta cartridge not recognised.I have cleaned the contacts and reseated it endlessly but it will not work.Google reveals that this is not an unknown problem. Canon said they wil 'escalate' my query but have not as yet, responded.Having always used Canon I am disappointed withthis or have I just been unlucky?

Answer:Canon IP 4500 cartridge failure.

I think you have just been unlucky - Canon are usually pretty much on-the-ball sorting problems.

Just thought you should know...
Dell says that you can't put more then 1 GB of RAM in your Dell Dimension 4500 and no Processer higher then a 2.8GHz Northwood--soo not true!
You can put 2x1GB of PC2100 DDR Low-Density, Non-ECC, Unbuffered RAM and the BIOS sees it right away, not only that, you can put a Pentium 4, 3.06 Ghz 512k/533 Northwood in it too and the BIOS sees it. The only problem I had is that the Dell BIOS update A04 dose not see the Hyper-Threding tech of the chip. Someone told me that if you have an earlier BIOS it might work or reinstall the op sys it might also work--I'm not going to do that, but if you want to let me know what happens--I'm sure that if the BIOS can't see it then the op sys can't, and do you really want to mess with your BIOS? Very happy with my upgrade, I spent a lot of hours looking into what could be done for this ol' Dell and I've done a great job, not only did I update the mem and the Pentium I also added a FSP460-60GLC 460W Power Supply and a "HIS" IceQ H467QS1GHA Radeon HD 4670 1GB 128-bit DDR3 AGP 4X/8X HDCP Ready Video Card. Whatching HiDef is awsome! No lag as long as you aren't multi-tasking--I don't think it can handle new games, too much to ask, but if you want to make your ol' Dimension kick it up a few notches--go for it!

Running Windows 10 (32 bit) on Dell tablet. Have the wireless printing software installed. No problems printing from Tablet. Double sided even works. However, there are times when I have to print double sided because it will not fit on one page. Is there any other software that would work (wirelessly) and allow me to shrink the page so I can get only 1 page to print out?

Just purchased and installed one at home...

10/100 NICS work fine...but my one gig nic is EXTREMELY slow, especially if traffic from other machines is going through the router...

I get crawl speeds if I'm lucky...

I got into device manager and forced the gig to 10/100 full and it solved the problem...but I want a gig LAN....

Anyone other DGL4500 users experience anything similar?

Answer:DLink DGL-4500 Users...Gig Ports...

Maybe its trying to auto negotiate the speed and without a gig nic its confusing it. Sometimes it happens.

My board, the Gigabyte GA-MA785GM--US2H ,has the Ati 4200 built in.

How do I know how much memory its taking?
I have an ATI 4300/4500HD card that has 512 MB

Is one better over the other or could it be a wash

I have 4 Gig of mem in the machine with an AMD Phenom 965

I have the DVI cable installed but not sure if I really see a dfference vs. a regular cable. Samsung Syncmaster 205bw


Answer:ATI Radeon 4200HD vs. 4300/4500-HD

Seperate cards are always (with VERY few exceptions) better than integrated. You should be able to tell via the BIOS (press Delete, or F1 or whatever instructed when your computer first boots).

DVI is better, although you may not be able to tell with your naked eye, depending on your Screen size and resolution settings.

Hello all, I have an old(ish) Dell Dimension 4500. It used to my grandfather's, and I think it was dropped or something because I noticed that on the top of the tower, to the back, the left dark side of the case is splitting off. I was wondering how I would fix this. I can post pictures later if I didn't explain well enough, because it's hard to explain what's wrong with it.

Answer:Need to fix Dell Dimension 4500 Case

Pictures are probably a good idea

I have just bought a Fujifilm Finepix 4500 at an auction of items found at London Airport. Unfortunately, the last owner was even more careless because he forgot to lose the manual and the software with it.

I believe that the camera was introduced in the USA a few years back, however, it was never imported into the UK.

Does anyone know a download site (I've searched Google without success) for drivers and/or manual or, better still, a source for a CD?

Answer:Drivers/manual for Finepix 4500

u might want to try this site :

hope it helps

as the title suggests i'm having problems connecting the Nintendo WII to my wireless DGL-4500 router
When i setup and have the WII auto discover the network, mine pops right up.

I select it, then have tried numerous variations of settings:
I have tried both auto ip as well as manually defining ip/subnet mask/gateway on the WII networking console
Also on WII settings i tried AES/TKIP WPA/WPA2

WPA2/WPA on the router
TKIP/AES on the router
Mixed n g and b
mixed b and g
channel width 20/40
channel 1
using the right password and SSID
turned off SPI
I can see the WII device ip/mac address on the router's "Status/Device info" screen.
I even have the dhcp assigned ip address setup in DMZ and i still cannot get the WII console to authenticate

I'm not sure what to do now , I haven't had much issue connecting any other wireless device,
if anyone has any insight, it would be greatly appreciated
thank you

Answer:DGL-4500 & Nintendo WII Wireless problem, please help

I've come across this problem before. Try disabling all wireless security (WEP, WPA, WPA2, etc.) and enable MAC address filtering. Add your laptops and other wireless devices MACs into the table, as well is your WII's MAC address. See if she'll connect then.

I recently learned that I don't have to have my printer/scanner plugged-into the VersaLink modem, or my laptop to print. Printer & internet connection were working fine... This afternoon, the printer is not recognizable to the computer. What would be the best way to re-connect the printer?
