Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router

1 Answer

Windows xp wont connect to internet

Hi,

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 help!!

Im running:
windows xp service pack 2
1.85ghz amd athlon xp
nvidia nf7-s2 nforce

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.

The setup wizard does not show the connect button after following the steps. So we cannot connect to the internet using the dlink dir-412 router.


For each PC that needs to connect to the DIR-412 wirelessly, you must ensure that the correct Wireless Network Name (SSID) and encryption key has been entered.
Windows 7 On your computer, go to Control panel --> Network and Sharing Center and Click on "Connect to a Network then select on the Wireless Network Name (SSID) and enter the password/encrytion key.
Windows XP On your computer, go to Control panel --> Network Connection then under the network task pane select View available wireless networks then then select on the Wireless Network Name (SSID) and enter the password/encrytion key.

Connecting a router


To connect more than one computer to same network, you need to use a router. Two modems will not work on same network.
My suggestion:
Buy a wireless modem router for cable broadband (and eventually a wireless network card for the other computer.
Here is an example: Linksys BEFW11S4 Wireless-B 4-Port Cable/DSL
Ask retailer to get right model for your broadband.
Connect the remote computer with wireless.

Just typr 192.168.0.1 into the add bar on internet explorer and it will take you into the router so you can set it up. You will need to be connected to it by a lan cable to do this.

Hope that fixes it for you?
