Question about Acer D-Link 2.4GHz Wireless Router 802.11b (DLINKROUTER)

1 Answer

Acer with Windows Vista does not connect to Internet

Hi, I just bought a brand new Acer laptop with a Vista Premium. It detects and connects to my D-Link DI-524 wireless router, but then when I click on the network status icon on the lower right corner, it says "identifying... (my router name)" and I'm unable to open any website. When I open Network and Sharing Center under Control Panel, I see three big icons, My Computer, Router (still saying 'identifying'), and Internet. There is a green line connecting My Computer and Router, but there is a red X between Router and Internet icon. What is wrong? I also have a 6 month old Toshiba with Windows Vista, but it connects fine. Help!

You're laptop needs to have a profile for the router. Go to Network and Sharing Center, Manage Wireless Networks. Please remove all the listed networks there. Now click on Add, then Add a Network in Range of this Computer. Select the wireless name of your router and connect. If it asks for a network key, please type your wireless security key then connect. That should do it.

Actiontec GT704WG doesnt connect to internet


HI! all your computer is connected except for one, you are connected to to the local network but cant get an internet connection, I dont see any problem with your wireless connection bcoz you are connected to the lan, check the security settings of your browser on your windows vista, go to internet option and security, lower it down to medium security, so that you can access the internet or try using other browser like firefox or google chrome.. check your firewall settings as well on your windows vista..
