Use the windows home network setup utility and create a home network. You will have to tell windows to share the files on the computer providing the source material. Both computers would have to have wireless capabilities in order for this to work as well.

When your laptop is working, check the ip address.
Open your DOS PROMPT, type iconfig then click enter. If your ip address on the laptop is 192.168.x.x, that means that you are getting your internet from the router. If your ip address is (just an example:68.x.x.x, that means that the router is not functioning properly.

If the laptop ip is 68.x.x.x(just an example), make sure that your comcast modem is connected to the INTERNET PORT of your router.

You just bought your router so the best way to deal with this problem is call Dlink tech support so they can walk you thru the router configuration.

Good Day

Server not found} NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router doesn't connect me to the internet.


Dear Loud Nouises,

Your router must be connected properly to the cable modem. This must be to the wan port on the router.

Next, the router must be set-up accordingly to recognize the modem's internet connections. Please ask for the IP address.. and other relevant informations from your internet provider.

Set -up your computer using the internet connections wizard on each of your respective computer.

This should work fine if all connections were correctly configured.
