    How are you connecting to the router ? Through the USB or the Ethernet cable?

If your connecting through the ethernet cable then you don't have to install the router on your pc. You just need to configure it for your wireless network.

You do this by using your web browser to access the setup screen using the routers default IP, which tends to be either:
http://10.0.0.1 or
http://192.168.1.1

When you get there you can configure how it gets an address from the ISP, how it assigns addresses to your PCs, your SSID (Network Name) and if you want to use a password to access the router or your wireless network. You also need to set what channel your using (1 - 10).
Have you done all this?

I think you can try to reset the router and reconfigure it.
Press and hold the reset button on the router for 30 seconds. Release the button. Unplug the power and plug it back it. Wait for 30 seconds.
Connect the modem to the Internet port on the router. Computer to port 1 on the router.
Open the setup page of the router using 192.168.1.1 and configure the router manually.

Go to my computer control panel network connections and see if the setup for networking is correct DHCP should work most of the time. Check the device manager and see if your nic is properly recognized. If not you might need to install drivers for the card.

mycomputer - control panel

mycomputer - view system information - hardware - device manager

Also, sign onto your router and see if the router recognizes the computer.

It should tell you how to do this in the routers manual.

The system didint recognize the router during the setup proces we verified the conections and stay connected but during the set up process the system didnt recognize again 10 timess


Router setup
If you are using the cd that comes with the router, that is the problem. You do not have to use the cd. Go to the control panel and un-install the program that the cd installed. then:
Shutdown your PC. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line. This is if you have a cable service provider. If you have DSL, the router needs to be configured with PPOe.

Unable to get PC to recognize wireless connection with DI-624


Which is it? PC cant connect or not able to setup wireless? If the router came with a setup CD, run that from your pc... Make sure you have a crossover Cat5(ethernet) cable connected between the router and a PC just to set it up initially... within the router can enable or disable wireless function... But to really narrow your device down, i need to know the hardware revision number... its on the same label as the MAC address on the outside of your router

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.

My WRT54G2 Linksys router is not recognized by my computer at the end of the installation CD.


router is not a system device that is why you cant see your router on your computer, if your referring about the linksys installation disk this will guide you to setup your router to manage all your device that you want to connect to it. to see the router you need to connect your computer to your router using a ethernet cable on the lan port and run the linksys disk and it will walk you thru the setup of your router
