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

Can't get my wireless laptop to work. How do I connect the router to the computer?


First what type of router do you have? What is the model number?
Second ensure that your wireless switch (if your laptop has one) is set to on.
Go into view network connections and ensure your wireless card is enabled.
From you Desktop ensure that you are connected as described in the previous post.
Depending on your router make and model type in the ip address to the router.
Default for linksys is usually 192.168.1.1
DLink is usually192.168.0.1

From here it depends on your specific router.
There should be a wireless setup wizard.

Can not get security for dlink


You may need to access your router setup page to verify the wireless settings in the router. Using a computer that is wired to the router, open up IE and type 192.168.0.1, that is the default IP address of your router. Then, a window will open asking for a username password. The username by default is admin. Just leave the password field empty.

Once you're in the setup page, click on WIRELESS tab which on the left side of the page. On the Wireless page, you will see the wireless settings set in the router. You may also enable the wireless security on that page if there is not security enabled yet.

Please check this for your reference http://support.dlink.com/Emulators/di524/h_wireless.html

Hope this helps!

I want to connect another laptop on my dwl2100ap wireless adaptor but when I plug in the network cable it tells me that there is no or limited connection, I cannot get back into the dlink setup page so...


  Inorder to get into your D-Link Setup page, you must open a browser window and type:
192.168.0.1     This is the IP Address for most D-Link routers....If the setup page was password protected then you must enter the password to get into the setup, if you forgot your password you should be able to reset the router by using a pin and sticking it in the pinhole located on the back of the router..                                                                                                            Joe < Data Miner >

Limited or no connectivity to the internet. my setup: the telephone port is approx 30m from where i need internet access. Originally I had a dlink wireless router set up but was connected via cable, now...


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.

I need a toll free number to call with help on how to hook up my wireless router to my laptop and make my internet work


try the website manufacturer of your wireless router, dlink, linksys, netgear... they the ones you want to speak to... also.. if you just purchased the router.. installation instructions are usually ready to walk you through the setup process from beginning to end if you have not try those..
my suggestion is for you to have the computer directly connected to the wireless router and make sure your internet is working there... then give him a call.. they will let you know how to set up the wireless connection but you may want to make sure you can access the router from your computer and it would be easier just to have it connected direclty to the computer first, then after is configured you can try to stablish a connection wirelessly...

Trying to set up wireless from desktop (Main ethernet computer) to Laptop @ home. Have cable modem (comcast) connected to desktop (main ethernet plugged computer)Belkin Wireless Router G ethernet is hooked...


Check that the wireless drivers are installed properly on both your laptop and desktop. THe certificate error is because your laptop does not "trust" your computer. Under network conections click add a connection ec, and when you try to conect, microsoft should ask you weva to trust the connections from computer to computer that should do it :D

I have internet service with you. I want to know how do I get service for ny laptop


You can purchase a wireless home router and share your current internet connection between both computers. Most routers will cost less than $100, and will provide both wireless and wired connections on one device, so there would be no need to convert one of your computers.

All you have to do is connect your modem into the router's internet port, then plug your main computer into one of the other available ports. Setup your laptop to access via wireless, following the instructions in the user manual of the router, and you will be all set.

If you have anymore questions, please ask.
