Older wireless Macs and D-Link wireless N routers
Authored by: kyngchaos on Dec 19, '08 08:41:12AM

I had problems getting a "G" Mac and "N" Mac to coexist with a Netgear N router. Really, the problem was that the N Mac would often connect with G, and skip the N connection.

The trick I found was to give the G and N networks different names on the router. I don't know if your DLink router has that possibility, or if it would affect connecting with G. The Netgear allowed me to set the G and N names the same, and supposedly the Macs should try to connect with the best possible method, but this didn't always work.

The only other problem I had was a sudden surge in the number of wireless routers in the neighborhood, and changing the channels on the router fixed the connection problems then.

i don't think the D-Link DIR-625 is a dual-band router. but if you do use a router like the wrt610 that runs both 2.4ghz and 5ghz simultaneously, then yes each SSID should have a unique name.
