Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router
Hello, have the D-Link Di - 524 model. I just baught a new laptop (HP dv5-1017) and I can get a connection to the internet when wireless, but I also have a hardwire for my network behind my couch and when I plug it in I can't connect to the internet. I know my cat5 cable works because my old laptop worked fine through the wire. The only difference is my new laptop runs vista instead of XP. My buddy thought that was the issue, but how do I fix it. At times (like when gaming) I don't want to rely on wireless. The way my network is setup is that from my cable model, i then go into the wireless router from there I send a line out of the wireless router to the basement of my house into a splitter and then from their I have 4 or 5 cat5 locations in my house for hardwire connection. Any ideas?
The wired nic in your laptop will have a separate ip address than your wireless nic. I suspect you either have the router not set to hand out ip addresses, the info it is handing out is wrong, or you may have a static ip set. Did you ever have the laptop working on the wired nic?
Try disabling the wireless connection, plug up the cat 5 cable, open a dos prompt and type;
Notice the information. Now unplug the cable, enable the wireless connection and do the same for the wireless nic. The ip address should be different, but everything else should be the same. Let me know what you find.
