A couple things:
1) Get the latest software from the web and use that.
2)Try to find a way in the software to make a profile to save the settings, or make your home location default.
Weak, but worth a try. Good luck. Jidza

Is there any computer online using the router.

Wi-fi throufh dlink router has worked fine in past on my laptop. Recently the operating system was replaced and it will not connect- message is 'wireless network connection doesn't have a valid IP...


Operating System? Sounds like you might need to reinstall your router. the valid ip configeration issue probably happened because once a router hooks up to the internet it has a set ip address but since the operating system changed your's and your friends computer don't recignize it. If reinstalling the router doesn't work then you should try asking whoever changed the operating system.

Reset D-Link router to the Factory Default Settings
In general, to reset the D-Link to the Factory Default Settings, please follow these steps:
1. Turn off the router
2. Locate the Reset button on the back of the router.
3. Use a paper clip to press the Reset button and power on.
4. Hold for about 5 seconds (don’t hold too long) and then release. (Or, release when M1 and M2 flash at the same time.)
5. After you have completed the above steps, the router will be reset to the factory default settings.
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 PPPOe

Hi,

You may want to double-check if the wireless adapter on your laptop is enabled. If it is enabled, try to view the available wireless networks on your wireless connection and select the name of your wireless network. You may also want to check your wireless router if there is a wireless security enabled. It is important that you know the wireless settings on your wireless router to make sure that the wireless adapater settings on your laptop match the settings on the wireless router.

Intermittent Enabling


First you can try to uninstall and reinstall the driver of the wireless adapter on that desktop. Unplug and re-plug the wireless card. If it is a wireless PCI card, make sure the antenna is tightly screwed on. Install just the driver of the wireless card and not the utility/software that came with it. You can also try to change the channel on the wireless router by going to the router's user interface. If you're on channel 6, choose channel 11 and save the settings. Then power cycle the router, unplug the power for 30 seconds then plug it back in. Check now if you can connect wireless.

Network and router issue.


Go to the properties of each wireless network card in network connections in your control panel and click on the TCP/IP line and click properties again and ensure obtain ip address automatically is selected and click ok, restart pc. Next, reset the router at the rear if possibe with a pointed implement, then you need to get into the routers settings (192.168.2.1 in your web browser) and look for DHCP, and enable it so as to give your pc's there automatic ip addresses, also check in the general settings if it's a modem router that you have got a internet connection from your ISP and all the dns and ip addresses are showing. Restart all pc's if neccasary and refresh your web browser when trying to get online.
