I have a DI-524 wireless router that has always worked. I'm using it with Shaw cable internet service. For some reason it works fine in every way, except when connecting wirelessly to my Dell M1330 laptop with its Dell Wireless 1505 Draft 802.11n Wireless Mini-Card. When I connect an ethernet cable to the router it works. But when I try to connect my laptop wirelessly, it says either that the connection has limited connectivity, or that there is an IP Address Conflict. Does anybone know what I can do?

Where are you measuring the speed:
* transferring files from one computer on your network
to another computer on your network?
* using a "speed-test" web-site (http://speedtest.shaw.ca) that reports the speed?
What level of service are you paying your ISP for? "Lite"? "High-Speed"? "Extreme" ? "Nitro" ?
The "bottleneck" could be between your ISP and your router,
not between your router and your computer.
You have to make the Ip changes on the laptop not on the modem.
You said you have internet acces on one computer. Then use that computer to find out the exact IP address used by the modem.
On the laptop use the exact same numbers, (IP, Sub mask, Gateway, Primary DNS)
and chek if it works.
If you want to have both computers on the Internet, simply change the last number on the IP address ONLY.

For the username and password put admin for username and leave the password blank
Now look for an option for the Wireless Settings and change the channel from usually channel 11 to channel 4 your laptop may now see it. Otherwise try another, channels available in the uk are 1-12, I think it's 1 to 11 in USA

This shouldn't really be any problem simply use a short "Uplink" ethernet cable to join the routers thru the uplink port, or any port really, and that way ya should be able to wifi and access the net, set ya router that connects to the net for DCHP and disable that setting in the Wifi router and ya should be good to go?
You need to disable the DHCP server on your "slave" wireless router ( the di-524 ). In D-link routers this might be called configuring it to be an "Access point".
When this happens, connecting to the second wireless router should cause your computer to obtain an IP address which is in the range of the first router (that is to say, it will use the first router's dhcp server).
You should be able have your laptop connect with an automatic IP address and have it work.
