    Tell me how in my own home then I can get on the internet with my laptop without turning off or dismantaling my desk top. I have seen my grandchildren do this in their homes and I want to be able to use my laptop all over my house.

    If you are using an external Dlink ensure that you installed the drivers first, if you turn on the laptop you will see the Dlink network program.
    If you start it up you can scan for wireless networks.
    Go near to the router with the wireless laptop, and scan for wireless networks.
    Ensure that you are picking up the right one and connect to your own network. You will probably need to enter the network key.
    If you get far from the router you can lose the signal, even in the room aside if there is an obstacle.

    I am trying to explain it to you, be patient.



    1. Go near the wireless router, the box connected to the internet.

    2. Turn on laptop.

    3. You will see a small picture of something resembling a network, on the lower right hand corner of the screen near to the clock.

    4. Click it and open the wireless network management.

    5. ....here things change depending on wireless card model, post model if you want details...

    6. find the scan for wireless networks option in the wireless network management.

    7. Find your own network on the list that will be displayed.

    8. Click on it , you will be asked the network key.

    9. enter your network key, if you do not know it you cannot connect, you probably will have to wait for your grandchildren.

I have just signed up to bt braodband and got a bt home hub. As a result I have a spare BT voyager 54g wireless network modem. Can I use this to print wirelessly to my lexmark printer


You can't use wireless adapter to hook printer to wireless network. You need a wireless print server. Example is Linksys or DLink Wireless-G PrintServer.

My laptop will connect with the internet though a home router. At a hotel or airport it will not connect with the internet service provided by these places. What is wrong


More information needed:
Does your laptop have a wireless adapter?
How do you connect at home? (wireles or ethernet cable?)
What brand of laptop do you have?
What troubleshooting steps have you already taken?

For your information, when away from your home network, you must change your wireless settings to point to the hotel or airport provider where you are trying to connect.

Usually hotels have some contact information and some basic support (some better than others) for their wireless connections.

How do i setup my wireless dlink so that i can connect my laptop through main computer


I'm not exactly sure as to give you the right answere as i dont have enough info on laptop and wireless modem. But in windows on your laptop ,look for SEACH FOR WIRELESS NETWORKS. On your pc when you set up your router you should have put in a password. This password you should have to use when your laptop finds your network, its as simple as putting in the password and away you go.If in doubt, contack dlink (usually toll free number) and give them a call. But remember to write things down as you might find yourself having to do it again (lost files,power outage.etc) so might be a good idea to keep a record. good luck JLS

On which port of the D-link router did you plug the WRT160N router?

Do this setup.

Disconnect the WRT160N from D-link.

Connect a computer to port 1 of the WRT160N. Access the setup page by typing 192.168.1.1 on the address bar. you may need to type in the username and password for WRT160N. on the setup page Change the LAN IP address from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.2.1. save the settings.

Connect a cable from port 1,2,3 or 4 of the D-link router to the Internet port of the WRT160N. turn off everything then turn them on starting from cable modem>D-link >WRT160N then computer.

You should be able to access the internet.

FIRST you check for any security options enabled - like password or in the wireless advance settings you pefer to connect only to this network = make that to any wireless access point. The computer is sending packets but return packets will only comes through filters like firewalls or security measures definetly your problem belong to the security settings with your pc which is not accepting any outside devices to connect - check your firewall setting and under network properties check internet protocol settings also check your antivirus blocking the connection try to ping the wireless adpater ip of your pc by itself are your getting the reply???

Does it say limited connection to network? You're connecting it through a wireless router right? Do you see your wireless router when you search for networks?
I had similar problem with my previous Dell laptop. Wireless use to work untill one day it just stopped, found the networks, but kept giving me limited connection whenever i tried to connect. I found out the problem is linked with the driver. Dell laptop i had was also on XP OS.
Maybe try reinstalling the drivers. After I formatted my computer and reinstalled drivers, it started working again.
Hope this helps.
