Question about D-Link DI 514 Wireless Router (DI-514)

Wireless connection problems

My mother's laptop will not connect properly to the internet. She brought it to my place and connected to my wireless with no problems, yet although the icon tells her it's fully connected she can not get on to the net at her own home.

(My father set up the router using their desktop pc, before she got the laptop.)

I don't remember the exact wording she told me, but when she diagnoses the problem it tells her "This computer is set to connect to default with security enabled; however, this is an unsecured network."

She believes my father entered an administrator's password (that he no longer remembers) when he set up the router...

Funny thing is, I visited them and tried my laptop - and got it going with no problems. There was no prompting to enter a password.

So where's the problem likely to be? In the desktop pc or the laptop?

I'm sure there's an easy solution to this problem...but what is it?

Help would be appreciated...

    Thanks for your suggestions, Jeffjjs. The problem seems to have been fixed by just resetting the router.

Grandmothers laptop shows good signal and connection but wont let her on internet, using a belkin router. Brought laptop to my house and runs like a champ. Is it the router?


Yup. You may have a good wireless connection TO the ROUTER, but the router itself may have some trouble connecting to the internet.
Check the router management page, check DSL or cable status.
Ping to 208.67.222.222 just to check if it is DNS problem
hope this helps. cya

Laptops stopped connecting wireless


how about to reset your router and setup it the proper address by your internet provider..
laptops only connect to the router automatically if you enable it reconnect and detect its network without manually connect internet, this procedure can see in your wireless properties by enabling it.
And also ask your internet provider if theres a problem also with their internet connection.
Good luck!

Slow Speed on Wireless Connection


As you said , try upgrading your routers firmware, but the better fix would be for a n router with a n card you will have a proper synchronisation and good speed.. or else the speed will vary, for a g router and n card..
