Question about HP Compaq Presario V6000T Notebook

1 Answer

I just installed a D-Link DIR-655. My desktop is running just fine but my laptop won't connect wirelessly. Well it says I'm connected to the network but when I click on Internet Explorer it says, " Can not display the webpage." What am I doing wrong? The laptop is a Compaq Presario F500 with Vista Home Premium if that makes a difference.

    Don't know exactly what you're talking about but here's what I did. I ran the ethernet cable from my desktop to port 1 on the D-Link then ran the other cable from the back of the modem to the internet port on the back of the router just like the directions said. My laptop says I'm connected to the network and the internet with an excellent signal. I tried getting on the internet using AOL 9.0 VR and it worked. I tried Internet Explorer again and I'm still getting that same message.(can not display the web page) So while logged on to AOL, I downloaded another browser.(Safari) Now Safari is giving me that message. Maybe it's something wrong with the browser settings.

    Ok, AOL was the only program in the exception list. I added IE and Safari but they're both still saying the same thing. This is getting real frustrating. I'm about ready to chunk it out of the window.

    On the network icon on your laptop (the two computers) is there a globe overlapping it?

    You have your modem plugged into the WAP port on the D-Link?

I think what we're dealing with then is a Windows Firewall problem, for whatever reason its blocking Internet Explorer and Safari from the net. The globe is proof that even Vista can see internet on your connection. We need to allow those programs through your firewall.

Internet explorer and Safari are the ones we are looking for. Let me know if this helps. Unfortunately my vista machine is at home or else I could give you more precise instructions.

Problem with DIR 655


On the laptops, check that your Internet is set to use "Private" networks as opposed to "Public". Private networks allow others to see you and you to see others on the network, once you've entered the proper pass phrase as set up in the router's software. Your Manual for the router has the instructions you need to complete this process.

You must manually configure the wireless settings. Go to Network and Sharing Center > Manage Wireless Networks. Remove all the listed network there. Then click Add > Add Network in Range > Select your signal > Type the security if you have and press connect. That should do it.
