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!
What you can do here is to get a new wireless card for your computer , you can get those new wireless card now in the market which uses the N standard already, You can check them from this manufacturer Linksys, Netgear, Belkin and Dlink....
I have seen issues like this before , certain chipsets/drivers of wireless cards and routers just dont like each other.
We know your wireless card works just as we know your router works. Trick is to get them to play nice together. Unfortunately, there is no quick and easy way to do this, you will have to try different driver and firmware combos until you find one that works.
You can get dlink updates here http://support.dlink.com/downloads/
And you can try these drivers here. http://asus-drivers.blogspot.com/2009/01/asus-f3-f3jc-driver-download.html
One other thing you can try before messing around with drivers and firmware is changing the application you use for wireless. The default for your setup is probably Intel Proset. Try using the native Vista wireless manager and see if that does anything. to access that go to start , run , type in services.msc, scroll down to WLAN auto config. Double click on it and then click on start. If you still cant see your router, its time to start trying drivers and firmware.
First make sure you have the latest update for your bios and wireless device, your os is probably non preload so clean any access connections utility provided by ibm, rather than using the ibm thinkvantage access connection make sure to use the windows own utility to control the wireless device
I have thought about mac filtering. I don't think it is as secure as some think. I am not a big fan. spoof the mac is not that hard anymore. If however I have to go back to wep then I will do a combo of wep, and mac filter.
I know no wireless is foolproff, but I want to make it as hard as possible for warhawks.
I can be surfing along and the webpages become unresponsive. then I get notifaction that I have limited network connection. I can not then aquire a proper address without rebooting.
HP uses "branded" wireless modules,which means it's got to be HP or it doesn't get to play.
Does device manager see the wireless device? I've had similar situations with the 8000s. Always the driver or the wireless utility was the problem. Try letting windows manage the device, or if you already are, disable that and use the devices utiliy to manage it.
BTW, most systems consider BT as wireless.
Good luck, hope that helps
