Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router
I have a Dell Inspiron 9400 with an Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG card. I am using a D-Link DI-624 router to create a wireless connection. The router was working perfectly fine untill I did a PC Restore in my Dell laptop. I am able to access internet using an ethernet cable directly between my cable modem and the laptop. However, when I connect the modem cable to the WAN port in the router the wireless card will not detect the router. Also, if I connect the router to my laptop using a separate ethernet cable the Network connections inside the Control Panel will show both Local Area and Wireless connection as "Not Connected". I have tried resetting the Modem and the Router but it won't help. I have also spoken to Dell Wireless Support, D-Link support, Comcast support but none of them are able to provide a solution. While talking to the D-Link support I was resetting the router and after that I found that the Status LED stopped showing up. All other lights (Power, WAN and LAN)come up fine. The Status LED was showing earlier. I tried to reset the router a number of times but the Status LED is still not showing. Any guess why is it happening and what do I need to do set up a wireless connection using this router. Thank you, Rajat
This is because your router is setting your pc at a different IP address than your original modem. Make sure router is set to enable DHCP which gives out an automatic ip address and check your wireless card and network cards are set to obtain ip address automatically. It may take a few re-starts to get on the internet as your systems will need to clear their previous DNS settings. Also i assume you have set up the home network wizard (XP) as you are now using a router and not a direct modem. Also try Start>Run, then type ipconfig /flushdns then press enter.
