You have to make sure that you could access Internet using the modem so could use your router again.

I don't know how to turn on the wireless capability on myself?


What type of computer Desktop or Laptop & Make ???...

If your computer will not connect to a wireless Internet signal, one of the first things to check is whether your computer's wireless switch is turned on.
Many laptop computers have a switch located on the exterior of the computer that controls its ability to connect to wireless networks.
This switch can be accidentally turned off, preventing users from connecting to the Internet.

Determine if your computer's wireless connectivity has been disabled by viewing the network icon in the lower toolbar on your computer's desktop.
When there is a disruption in your computer's Internet connection, the icon will have a red X through it. For further information, go to the computer's Network and Sharing Center where you can troubleshoot connectivity issues and view available wireless networks.
If the computer isn't recognizing any wireless connections (and you're sure that there are wireless signals in your area), the likely problem is that the wireless switch is turned off.
Locate the wireless switch on your computer.
It may be located on either side of the laptop or along the back or front.
If you aren't sure whether your computer has a wireless switch, check the user guide that came with the unit.
Determine whether the switch is currently in the "On" or "Off" position.
The switch will be clearly labeled.
Push the switch in the direction of the "On" position to ensure that it is turned on.
If the switch was already turned on, see if there is a keyboard combination that will activate your laptop's wireless capability.
The key combination for your laptop will depend on your computer's manufacturer, but will generally involve a combination of the Function, Control or Alt and the F1 to F12 keys.
Check your user manual for your computer's key combination.

We have cable internet provided by Virgin. I am accessing the internet by plugging the ethernet cable dirctly into my laptop rather than via my DI524. Have just read a post that says I have to be connected...


If you can connect to the internet using the Ethernet cable on your laptop then the cable modem is configured correctly.
If you want to connect to the Internet using the D-Link wireless router then first you need to configure the D-Link wireless settings and then configure the wireless card in your laptop with the D-Link's wireless settings. Remove the Ethernet from the laptop and connect it to the WAN/Internet port on the D-Link wireless router.

Do I need any special equipment other than the ethernet cable connection for my linksys broadband wireless-g router


That's all you need to get your wireless internet up and running. However, in order to connect computers to the wireless network, they must be wireless capable, for example, most laptops have built in wifi, however desktops will need a wireless adapter to take advantage of your wireless router.

Wired Connection
1. Check your hardware connection:
Make sure that you use a straight cable and not a cross over cable. And also make sure that the cable is not broken or loose.

2. Check your hardware devices:
If you are using a hub, modem, or router on your network, make sure that they are connected properly and switched on. Sometimes, the solution might be as simple as restarting the modem/router, then your computer. You can also try connecting the Ethernet cable to another port of the router to test.

3. Check your network adapter:
Disable and enable your Network Adapter to make sure that it is functioning.

4. Obtain IP address automatically:
If you have set static IP address on your computer previously, it could be one of the reasons of why you are unable to connect to the Internet. So, you should set your computer to obtain IP address automatically. If you are not sure how to do it, we have an article here to guide you.

Wireless Connection
1. Check your wireless key:
When you connect to the wireless connection, you will be prompted for wireless key (password). So, if you have entered an invalid key, you will not be able to connect to the Internet. Therefore, make sure that you have the correct wireless key. If you are not sure whether you have the correct key, ask the person who setup your wireless network for help. OR, click here to learn how to check the wireless settings on your router to find out your wireless key.

Sir, try downloading the wireless driver from your laptop company's website. Or form the drivers cd/dvd they provided you. Then you can connect to any wireless capable modem/router from your laptop.

The ethernet cable provides the internet pulses into your laptop. If you remove it, your internet connection gets disconnected.

Sounds like you are setup to use Internet Connection Sharing. don't do this. Have each computer connect to the internet via the router. If the router is wireless connect all computers wirelessly to the router that are wireless capable and any computers that are not wireless capable, connect them to the router via a cat5 cable to the cat5 ports on the router. This will solve your problem. BPCS
