Re: Choosing a router
You need not to worry about
the letters g or n, but if you mast know; then the g (and n) stands for a
protocol that is used for transmitting data i.e. a highway that “transmit” cars. The “old” g is being replaced
by the “new” n, which is supposed to be faster. Now back to you question. The new model n is faster, and
without doubt more expensive, and as the “older” g has been working without
problems for many years, I would buy one of these. /Teis

The setup disc for the router only needs to be run once when setting up the router to work with your internet provider and modem/router. You can try putting the disc in your desktop computer and reconfiguring the router.
Well, actually... it might help to turn the router off and then on again. Sometimes power-cycling the router can reset it, which might need to be done. I'm a big fan of the power-cycle; it works for all sorts of obscure problems.
Once the router is on again, use the laptop and adapter to check for wireless networks. If you still can't find a network, disconnect the ethernet cable from the back of the desktop computer, and try the wireless adapter with the desktop PC. If it works, the problem is with the laptop (possibly a power supply problem). If it doesn't work, the problem is either the adapter or the router.
Ideally you should then try your adapter with a friend's router. Eventually you will discover whether the router is playing up or whether the adapter is faulty.
In my (admittedly still limited) experience, connection problems are rarely about faulty equipment and more usually about incorrect settings, so it might also be worth running the New Connection Wizard from Network Connections in the Control Panel.
It depends on your router settings. If you use a password, your landlord will need to know the type of security and your password. If you use a mac address filter, you'll need to add your landlords mac address to the list in your settings. Try connecting to your router in a web browser, it's probably at 192.168.1.1, and look at your security settings.
The most likely culprit is the cable you are using to connect the desktop to the router.
The networking icon with the red X is your computer telling you the network card is not physically connected to a functioning port. Either the cable is bad or one of the ports (your computer's or the router's) has a physical or electrical problem. Try using the laptop cable and/or connecting to the port the laptop is connected to.
If the problem is something else, it is likely more information will be needed to diagnose and fix it (router model, OS version, whether a DHCP server is running, the network address of the router, the exact type and text of the icon that's telling you the network is disconnected).
first you have to check the ip address of the dsl modem you used and see to it that it is not the same ip address of the router to avoid conflict. the default ip address of dlink router is 192.168.0.1.if in case your dsl modem has the same ip address with the router, you have to change firs the ip address of the router before connecting the router to your dsl modem.
next you need to know your internet connection whether it is DYNAMIC or PPPOE, depending on how your internet provider configured your modem. for PPPOE connection, you have to know the USERNAME and PASSWORD that your provider provides you.
Usually cable providers provide public ip directly to your company ( already bridged ). so no need to configure your modem to bridge.
- Connect the computer directly to the modem and if possible, let me know the ip address of your PC, So we can find the modem already bridged.
- If its already bridged, then Open the ports on your Router ( port number : 3389 for TCP ) or else you may try DMZ Host on your router to check whether it works.
DMZ ( Demilitarize Zone ) host which opens all ports on your network and shows ur computer to the outside Network which is not really secured one. but you can try it for testing purpose whether it let you to use remote desktop.
