D-Link DIR-628 router, i've lost internet connection to the PC!

Hi, here's the situation. i have a PC and modem upstairs in a two story home. Downstairs i have a playstation 3, that i've wanted to get an internet connection on for a while. I've never had any problems with the internet connection on the PC. Yesterday i bought the DIR-628 router and set it up upstairs. After battling with the router and some DNS error problems, i finally was able to get a connection on the ps3. Now upstairs, i can't browse the internet at all because it tells me there isn't a connection! I'm not sure if it's just my PC not having wireless capabilities or what, but i'm very frustrated. In order to use the internet as I am now, i have to unplug the internet cable that runs from the PC to the router, into the modem, and i lose the connection downstairs. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. =D I can not get a wireless connection to my PS3 from my D-Link DIR-628. For the past week I have been trying to get it working with no luck.

I was using a Thrustmaster FunAccess USB wireless router six months ago and I had no problem getting the PS3 to recognize it. Now, I am using a different computer (don't have the other one anymore) and the PS3 can't get a signal from the Thrustmaster. I have tried getting the IP info ( ipconfig/all) and entering every possible combination and it always ends up with a DNS error when I try to connect.

So, I figured I would buy a wireless router and see what happens. I ended up with the D-Link DIR-628. I'm having the same problems. I can connect to the internet on my computer but no luck with the PS3. There are so many options on the D-Link that I have no idea what numbers to enter where. Also, I don't know if my PC is the problem because I have tried setting up the network thru the wizard so many times that I'm sure something is not set right.

Any ideas where to go next?

Thanks for reading.

Plug your internet into the router then, the router to the computer. Go to your network settings and run the network setup.

Lost cd rom to install dlink dir-628, how do i obtain the software to reinstall it?

You do not have to use the cd. :

Shutdown your PC. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line. This is if you have a cable service provider. If you have DSL, the router needs to be configured with PPOe.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Happy New Year!

Thanks, Joe
