Link Sys wireless G router, connects with laptop, not desktop

I have AT&T as DSL service provider.

I FINALLY got my laptop working to connect with my Link Sys wireless router. My desktop "sees" the connection, makes the connection, but cannot get to the internet.

It is set to WEP, not sure what else to do.

The laptop is on Windows VISTA, desktop, Windows XP if that matters. it worked fine before I moved and hooked into AT&T.

thanks in advance for any help! I need both PC's for my work

    and you realized that my LAPTOP is connecting OK to the wireless router, but it's my DESKTOP (which is about 3 years old and upgraded memory) with Windows XP that is not connecting to the router.



    it was prior to hooking up to AT&T software.



    just wanted to be sure you knew that my laptio IS connecting OK



    thanks again!

No internet connection


This should be connected as so. From wall outlet to DSL modem, from DSL modem to D-Link router, From D-Link router to Laptop via wireless or wired connection. You will still need the DSL modem installed but the wire coming from the DSL modem will go to uplink port on the router instead of into the laptop.

How can I make a password for my D-Link 520T Router?


If you wanna go wireless and your router is not wireless, you can simply buy a wireless access point. Connect it to your router and it will give you wireless service, hence your laptop can connect wirelessly now. You can just buy a D-link wireless access point.

Who is your internet service provider if it is DSL you need to configure router for a PPPoE connection your DSL provider will provide you with username and password. IF it is cable configure router for dynamic connection and clone mac address.If does not work. Power cycle router and modem then turn on modem first then router.

Router not working unless


Several questions --


How is this wired?

Comming from the Cable (tv) or a phone wire (DSL) from a phone jack you are connected to a modem/whatever supplied by your service provider. Then an ethernet cable (looks like a fat phone cable with extra wide connectors (8 metal connectors instead of 2 or 4) connects the modem/whatever to your router's WAN port (the separate port not one of the block of 4) and another ethernet cable connects the one of the outer's Lan ports (probably block of 4) to the desktop computer and your laptop operates wirelessly. Is this correct? If not explain houw this is wired, please. For consistency please start at the cable or phone wire.

Does your desktop do anything to log into the internet with a userid and password maybe?

If so who is your internet service provider?

We may need to change the login process and get it into the router and off the desktop.

No internet connection on my laptops


Please understand as I get very basic to start but things very obvious to you I cannot see.

Generally when including a router in a home network starting from the cable (tv) or the phone socket (dsl) in the wall with a phone wire plugged in. The next box is generally provided by your internet service provider and is a modem/something that connects to the phone line or cable. Then sometimes when only one computer exists computers are directly connected to the modem with an ethernet cable (looks like a fat phone wire with oversize connectors) or a USB cable (small flat retangular ends).

When you want to add a router for multiple computers. The computer gets disconnected. If a USB cable was used it is often replaced with an ethernet cable and that cable connects to the WAN port (probably separate from a block of 4 lan ports) of the router you bought (tell me if you have two routers -- that is a different problem). If your service comes from a cable (tv) company your router may already be properly configured. If however you have DSL service from the phone company the chances your router is correctly configured are less. To finish with the cabling story -- your computer then hooks to one of probably 4 LAN ports all in a block. Now if you are lucky power on all devices and boot up your computer and see if you have internet access. If you do great if not please provide me the name of your internet service provider or a link to their help/support website and I will see what I can do to assist in completing the router setup. Until your wired computer gets access to the internet your girls wireless connections will not work either. Once we get the wired connection working we will address the wireless connections.
If necessary unplug the router and plug the computer back into the original cable until we get the router working.

Need help with a router


Yes I do know routers require configuration (setup) go connect to some devices to access the internet.

I am not familiar with the ISP 3web -- can you provide me the website where the support or help function is located.

I may have found the 3web help site check the following link to assure the service is right and let me know if you have a DSL or Cable connection.

help link

If you are not familiar wit configuring your wireless router --
Will you provide me with the Manufacturer and Model of the
Router? They all configure differently when it comes to
detailed instructions. (the link provides instructions for
some routers however maybe not for yours)

I may need manufacturer and model information on your modem device depending on what I find at the ISP's site. (if the link is right I probably do not need this)

The following is probably not covered in the 3web documentation.

With wireless services attached to your network you should also consider securing that wireless service so others cannot easily access your network and computers, like your neighbors or people on the street with a laptop.

If you want to consider that I can discuss several options with you. However to determine which options your equipment supports I will need to know the manufacturer and model number of your wireless adapter or the computer with a built-in wireless adapter you intend to connect to your wireless network.

Setting up a wireless router


first you have to check the ip address of the dsl modem you used and see to it that it is not the same ip address of the router to avoid conflict. the default ip address of dlink router is 192.168.0.1.if in case your dsl modem has the same ip address with the router, you have to change firs the ip address of the router before connecting the router to your dsl modem.
next you need to know your internet connection whether it is DYNAMIC or PPPOE, depending on how your internet provider configured your modem. for PPPOE connection, you have to know the USERNAME and PASSWORD that your provider provides you.
good luck.
