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

1 Answer

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.

My Fujitsu wont stay connected to my wireless internet


Maybe the wireless card in the laptop is no good or not strong enough to receive a good strong signal. Try sitting close to the wireless router and see if it loses connection. Does it connect at all and let you on the internet before it loses the signal? If it does not connect at all I'd say you might have an issue with the password or the type of wireless security protocol type you selected to connect with. For example there are different types of wifi security protocol types: (Ex. wep, wpa, wpa2) .

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

Having problem connecting to internet. says everything is working properly. but the wireless switch is not connected.


Sometimes ,when you try to connect to a wireless network ,you have to give windows the "SSID"of the network. usually Windows will detect it automatically, but not always. you need to go to Control Panel, then find the place in control panel where you see the word network or networking, then click on "Set up a network connection"

No internet access with new Linksys wireless PCI Adapter


Don .bin is a firmware that can upload to the linksys router or any router.

So it seems that your unable to connect wirelessly using the linksys adapter? The Internet connection before is working properly?

*I might advise you to reinstall the driver of your wireless adapter using the latest driver that you can download in there support site.

- Check the Internet connection hardwired to the router if connection works it seems that problem is on the adapter.
