Question about D-Link DI 514 Wireless Router (DI-514)

Cant connect to my router through laptops built in wireless/ps3

I recently got a new laptop(runs vista, not sure if that's important or not) and tried to connect to my wireless network via the laptops built in wireless. For some reason it wouldn't connect. I used WEP on my network, and I have made sure that the password i entered on the laptop is the correct one.
However, when I plug in my laptop to my Buffalow wireless device via an ethernet cord to connect to the d-link it works just fine.
I recently also just uninstalled and reinstalled network magic from the computer the D-link is connected to, and made a new wireless network with no security to see if that would work, but my laptop still recognizes my network as having security when I search for wireless networks. Any idea how i can connect to my network with my laptops built in wireless would be much appreciated. Thank you.

Need internet password to connect new lap top and ps3 to wireless internet


Use an Ethernet cable to connect the laptop to the router.
Access the router's built-in web-interface.
Run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard"
to create your own wireless network,
and choose a SSID and choose a password.

Disconnect the Ethernet cable, and use "View Available Wireless Networks".

The operating system on my PC is XP and I bought a new HP laptop with Vista. I cant seem to get the wireless feature to work now - it worked fine with my previous laptop running XP.


I'm assuming that your Vista has a built-in wireless.. If so, the first thing you need to check is if the wireless function is turned on (usually by pushing Fn + F2. Check from your laptop manufacturer). Then follow these instructions: http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Windows/en-US/help/88ea056e-664a-4c3d-b977-13f79cb4dedb1033.mspx

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.

Cant connect ps3 wireless to dlink router


The router should assign an IP address to your PS3 if it isn't manually configured. If you are connecting wirelessly make sure your security setting on your PS3 match your router. If the problem persists disable wireless security on your router and then try to connect with the PS3 with security disabled as well. Sometimes consoles have trouble connecting with WEP or WPA security encryption.

Wireless connection of netgear wireless router for compaq laptop


When you look on the box that the router came in, you have to look to see what Operating Systems it is compatible with. In many cases, routers will not be compatible with vista. I have a Linksys WRT300N, and it works great with Vista.Hope this helps.

Loss of Connectivity


Libog1 - did you install any additional wireless software to connect to the router (Linksys software) or are you just allowing Vista to connect directly using Windows' built-in wireless management?
