Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router
im using virgin broadband with a d-link dir-301 router, and on my pc I am using the d-link supplied dongle.
On my macbook and iphone and other peoples laptops etc they can connect fine to the wireless, but with my pc it wont connect.
I can sometimes find the router in my network list, sometimes not. When I try to connect to it whenever it is listed, it connects to the network, but not to the internet.
If i try to repair the connection, it doesnt work, and disables the network connection through the dongle, and any attempt to 'enable this network device' fails straight away.
I have gone into advanced wireless settings and added a preferred network, but this doesnt help.
When I try things again and try to connect, it just sits on the screen - 'waiting for network', then says 'aquiring network address;, showing a low signal, and at that point it stays there, but still isnt connected!

Please check you LAN settings on your router (DNS) - usually it is 0.0.0.0 (assigned by provider)
Make sure your PC is using DHCP (TCP/IP properties -> Obtain IP Address Automatically & Obtain DNS server address automatically). Try "ipconfig /all" at others computers and compare with your PC (look at gateway & DNS). See if you can ping gateway and then outside address.
p.s. To access your router open Internet Explorer and enter http://192.168.0.1/
If it is not working, check the default gateway address on working computer and use it instead.
