I cannot link my router and stay plugged in to DLS

I want to stay plugged into DLS at my computer. My kids have a USB Wireless. I hook up the Lynksys as it says and they get a connection but I no longer do. I am sure I am missing a simple step but do not know what it is.

Re: I cannot link my router and stay plugged in to DLS

Linksys has a software program at their website called Easylink Advisor. Have you installed it yet? I had to and it has helped keep all of our computers online and networked. All desktops and laptops in the house stay connected share files and one printer.

When I connect the DSL modem and the D-link router together and I have my main computer hooked up to the number 1slot then I power them on I see that the DLS modem connect to the internet I have all green...

Connect the DSL modem to the WAN port of the D-Link. It should be labelled or colored differently. You then connect your computer to ANY other jack on the D-Link.

I hooked up my DLink VWR and cannot get internet connectivity

If you connect the computer directly to the modem, does it work?
If that works then the modem is working.
Now connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
You will need to open the set up page of the router to check the settings of the router.
You can set up the router without the CD also.
It is very easy.

Wireless not getting to my notebook

I have had the same happen on my laptop, some computers don't have a wireless network card in them so you need to buy one. All you need to buy is a Wireless USB Adapter. They are around (but no higher than) $50.00. Just buy a "D Link Wireless G USB Adapter DWA-110" For $50.00.

When I have my router hooked directly to my computer it works fine. When I hook it up so the kids can use their laptops, the speed is very slow.

I think the first thing you should try to verify if the signal is strenght enough, because if it is not so the speed will be slow too.

Can't connect with 2nd computer...

1st.  What brand and model # of your router? 2. The router cd should be run only on the computer u have connected to the router with a network cable. Your vista laptop. Is it connected with to the router with a cable? 3. If so, it will be the one used to configure your router for wireless setup. When you ran the setup it should have gone thru Wireless Setup. It will ask you for an SSID. That is a name you will give your wirless network. It can be anything you want. just remember it.  It will also ask you to setup security for your wireless network. follow the instructions to setup a password. write it down. This is an important step so anyone cannot just logon to your wireless signal an start using ur internet connection or gain access to your computers. 4. when u setup your dongle on your kids computer it will search for wireless signals in the area. you will look for the one u setup in the previeous step. you will select it and it should ask you for the passkey you setup. once connected you will have access to the internet.
Think of your router as a private radio station and the wireless usb dongle is the radio. The only way your computers can tune to it is using the dongle and if you know the name of the station (your SSID) and the passkey.

Setting up router

The Alltel must hook to a wireless source. Your D-link could be that source, but then it needs to be hooked to a source. If you have a wire coming to your house you should hook this to the Wan port on the D-link. Then your computer will hook to the d-link. It then should be setup with codes for security.

Have I confused you yet? In answer directly to your question, yes your Alltel will work with your D-link. But your D-link will then be your wireless source.

Where are you getting your signal from now?

I'm confused, you said usb printer and this is a router question. Your computer should recognize the printer if you hooked it up. What OS are you using?

DGL-4300 resets every few seconds

Try the following:
1. Hook up your router like you want it to be
2. After the WAN/Wireless lights turn off we want to HARDRESET your router.
3. There will be a small hole that requires a pen or paper clip to press...Hold this down for about 15 seconds, or untill the power light flashes on your router.

This might take care of it.

let me know.

D-link dir 615 ; can't get other desktop to read wireless network

Please understand as I get very basic to start but things very obvious to you I cannot see.

Generally when including a router in a home network starting from the cable (tv) or the phone socket (dsl) in the wall with a phone wire plugged in. The next box is generally provided by your internet service provider and is a modem/something that connects to the phone line or cable. Then sometimes when only one computer exists computers are directly connected to the modem with an ethernet cable (looks like a fat phone wire with oversize connectors) or a USB cable (small flat retangular ends).

When you want to add a router for multiple computers. The computer gets disconnected. If a USB cable was used it is often replaced with an ethernet cable and that cable connects to the WAN port (probably separate from a block of 4 lan ports) of the router you bought (tell me if you have two routers -- that is a different problem). If your service comes from a cable (tv) company your router may already be properly configured. If however you have DSL service from the phone company the chances your router is correctly configured are less. To finish with the cabling story -- your computer then hooks to one of probably 4 LAN ports all in a block. Now if you are lucky power on all devices and boot up your computer and see if you have internet access. If you do great if not please provide me the name of your internet service provider or a link to their help/support website and I will see what I can do to assist in completing the router setup. Until your wired computer gets access to the internet your girls wireless connections will not work either. Once we get the wired connection working we will address the wireless connections.
If necessary unplug the router and plug the computer back into the original cable until we get the router working.
