    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.

Did you enter the security key (password)? It may be your laptop? Try resetting the D-Link to default settings and connecting to the laptop. They reconfigure the SSID and Security Key.

Notebook does not connect to LAN or wireless


The dlinks have a tendency to reset to factory settings when you do a firmware upgrade. Connect to the router using a wired connection or using another computer, confirm the settings are what you want, not the defaults. NEVER use the default wireless name (in this case: dlink), always change it to something nobody around you is using!

So you have a DSL modem connected to a router connected to a wireless router connected to both your computers? Sounds like you need to just get a wireless modem and throw all the routers away.

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.

Is the wireless enabled for your router? Try typing 192.168.0.1 and use the default password to access your router settings. Check if wireless is enabled, SSID is broadcasted, and security is off or properly configured.

Acer notebook wireless just connects when near to the modem...


The connection between the laptop's internal wireless antenna and its wireless card may been disconnected. Best to take it in to a computer shop for fixing. If you want to fix it, open the PCI-E cover on the bottom of the laptop, then reconnect the antenna wire. If that doesn't work, get it serviced.
