Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router
My PC works fine when plugged into the new DI 524, and my Dell laptop recognises the new wireless signal, but my Mac laptop doesn't. I followed the instructions to set up the router for my Mac but when I tried to select 'Using DHCP' drop down box in System Preferences>Network>Built in Ethernet, the IP address, subnet mask and router details didn't appear. I called tech support but they didn't know what to do - please help if you can!! :-)
Based upon the way you worded the message, you were trying to get the Mac working wirelessly? The description of how you were trying to set up your network (SysPref\Net\BuiltInEthernet) is for WIRED connections, not wireless. If you are running OSX and you have a built-in wireless adapter, use System Preferences\Network\Airport choice to set up for wireless connections. If you are trying to use the wire either because you don't have a wireless card or it is not working, check to make sure that the cable is good...maybe hijack the cable that you know works for your PC and test it. Please let me know if I am on the right track to solve the problem.
