The SSID is the wireless network name. It is much like the workgroup name in Windows networking. If the SSID of the AP or the wireless router is WLAN (default) each client will search for an access point and associate with it. The default configuration for the F5D6020 PCMCIA card is to connect to an SSID named "ANY". This means the Access Point does not look for a specific SSID. If that is changed to a specific name other than ANY or WLAN, then the card will not connect to WLAN because it is being "told" to connect to a specific Access Point with a specific name.

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. Write down the info for future use. Here's a user Manual:

Hiya, Iv installed the wireless but the wireless network connection on my laptop is not connected and it says there is no wireless networks were found in range.

Hmm... If your router seems to be operating like it should (it really doesn't even need an internet connection for the laptop to connect), and you just installed it, my guess would be that the SSID broadcast is disabled. You would have to log into your router and check the wireless section to see if it is. If so, you can leave it that way (which is actually what I would recommend, for security) and setup the network manually on your laptop, or enable the broadcast and connect it like you normally would. If you decide to leave it disabled, then you will need to make a network connection manually on your laptop. You will need to put in the SSID, WEP/WPA passkey (if you have one), and you will have to make sure that you have the option "connect even if this device is not broadcasting" checked. Once you do that, it should work. When your SSID isn't broadcasting, its making itself pretty much invisible to other devices. You can learn more about this here, if you wish.

Lenovo laptop cannot seem to find the linksys wireless g. we have two WIFI at the office one is linksys VOIP (secure) and linksys wireless G (unsecure). why is it that lenovo laptop only sees the secure...

make sure that the linksys VOIP(secure) router is broadcasting it's SSID or signal, otherwise it will not reflect even if you refresh the wireless network. If the router is broadcasting SSID but the lenovo laptop is not detecting it, try to re-install the wireless software for the laptop using the software from, just click Support then Downloads and drivers.

Windows Vista won't connect to my actiontec

If you have disabled broadcasting of the SSID you will havw to tell Vista to connect even if the SSID is not being broadcast.
There is a checkbox on the wireless connection pannel for doing that and there is also that option when you setup the connection. If the SSID is not broadcasting Vista will not connect until you tell it to. You can check if that's the problem by enabling the SSID broadcast and seeing if it connects. If yes, then find that checkbox (sorry, I'm not on my Vista system and don't know all the steps to get there offhand) and mark it; then disable the router from broadcasting again. It should connect every time after that.

Belkin Wireless Router/HP Laptop - wireless security problem

This is an unusual problem. It's interesting that you can connect without encryption. A few thoughts, which you may well have considered already:

1) Does this happen even when you deliberately disconnect from the network, and reconnect?

2) The network key/passphrase is case sensitive; it is very easy to make a small slip with this, or some other tiny detail, when entering the key;

3) Is there the slightest chance your router has the same SSID (name) as a neighbour's? ....Sorry if this seems a daft question, but it is something to consider...

Unable to connect to my wireless network connection (SSID still VISIBLE)

Log on to the router, go to your wireless setup page. Disable wireless, reboot it and when it comes back up, enable wireless once more with a different pre-shared key. You'll need obviously to enter this new key into your laptops. Let me know if this solves the problem.

XP laptop connects to router, but connection doesn't work

first thing you may want to check on will be from your computer.

since you are using windows XP just browse for the available wireless network then click on "Change the Order of Preferred network", once you are in, remove the Belkin SSID from the list and other networks that has to do something with Belkin.

Next step is to changing the SSID and the channel of your router and get it encrypted. Start with WEP, and once you have it connected, work your way up to WPA to get more security. just make sure that your XP has the WPA patch, but since you have SP2, you may have it on.

hope this helps out. if you have other questiosn just lemme know.

D-Link DI-524 4 Port connection Problem.

Perhaps the router is not broadcasting its SSID, therefore is invisible to would be tappers. Type into a browser on a computer directly wired to the router, leave the username blank, if you havent changed it, the password is admin by default. Once logged in check that wireless is enabled and that you are broadcasting the ssid, you may want to setup/change security settings for the wireless connection at this time also.
