Question about D-Link Wireless
A few weeks ago, our old router gave out, so we bought a new one. Our computer guy came out and hooked it up and left because it appeared to have successfully worked, connection our two computers. The internet said 'connected' at first, but shortly, it read 'not connected' with the red "x" and everything. It was still reading full "excellent" signal from the network, but was still "not connected". If I hit 'repair' it would run though, then say it was unable to repair. However, while it still read that my internet was "not connected", it would actually work just fine as if it was connected properly. It works for about 20 minutes until a notice pops up saying "unable to connect to wireless network". I can use the internet so long as I constantly repair the connection when, all the while, I'm still "not connected" I'm not sure why its doing this or how to fix it so I can have constant internet access without this pain. I've tried several things, such as trying different usb ports, checking my network password, etc. I'm not sure if the problem is with the modem and router hook up on the main computer, or if its on the receiving end with this computer. Any suggestions would be excellent!
Try unplugging both the modem and the router. count to 15 then plug back in and try.
Keep in mind also that some routers dont connect 100% till you open a browser, weird but I have had similar problems.
It sounds like you may have problems at both ends.
Several things come to my mind;
make sure you shut down ALL programs in the background.
you are trying to problem solve by elimination, so close anything that may connect to the internet and take away that variable.
scan for spyware etc.
do a registry clean, temp files cleanup etc.
sometimes restarting the pc can help
