The HN9000 should have an ethernet port. You will require two ethernet cables to connect the desktop to the router.
1. Connect the ethernet cable from the Modem to the Ethernet Input port on the Router (It is generally placed away from the other ports on the back of the router.) 2. Connect another ethernet cord from one of the output ports on the router to the desktop computer. 3. On the laptop, turn on your wireless card. The process for this differs from computer to computer. If you were to provide the model of laptop, I could provide you specific instructions. 4. The network setup should be complete.

Purchase either a USB stick that adds wireless capability to your laptop/desktop, or purchase a PCI wireless adapter-card for your desktop, and install it.

Then, you can move the cable-modem much closer to the cable-outlet, and then connect the cable-modem to a newly-purchased wireless-router ($20 to $70) to receive/transmit over your in-home wireless network.

4. it will show the setup page of the router. u can set the router on the specific internet setup that u have.
a. if ur isp is a cable company, normaly u need to do a mac clone on the router setup page by cloning the computer that is reg to the cable company, how to determine it. ex. the computer that is reg to the cable company is a desktop or laptop, if this computer is connected to the modem directly and u can access internet.

5. If ur isp is a dsl normaly they give u a username and password to connect to the internet, ur settings on the router should be PPPoe
6. If ur isp gives u a static ip address settings, u need to set the router to isp setup.

5. from the dos prompt type ipconfig/all
6. it will list the ip address, subnet, default gateway, dns server
this settings should be type in to the settings on the router for static ip addressing..
7. Once your done on the internet setting, go to your wireless connection settings and you can create a wireless network name or ssid, set a security by selecting wep, wpa, wpa2.
8. once all is set. save the settings and to check if your laptop can access the wireless network that you did, turn on the wireless switch of your laptop, once its on, it will show the wireless network icon on the lower right of the taskbar, right click it and select on view available network, the network name that u did should list, just select it and connect and it will ask for the password, just type the password and connect, you should be connected to the wireless network and have internet access..
9. If you are going to hook up your desktop to the wireless connection, you need to install a wireless network adapter, install the driver and do the same thing as u did to the laptop, for the desktop no need of turning on the wireless switch, once you install the driver correctly, it will show a network icon..

Wireless connection set up


Are you trying to hook up the laptop wirelessly to the pc? because then the pc would need to have a wireless card as well....sounds like I need more info, but if you are trying to do what I think you are, you should just get a wireless router instead, hook the pc tower directly to it via ethernet cable, and then setup the laptop to connect to the router. The router would hook to your dsl or cable router....what service do you have?

Want to hook laptop up to home computer via cable modem


You need a router or a wireless router to do that.
If your cable modem is wireless you can set directly via wireless network a connection with your laptop (the laptop also need a wireless card (if dont have any built in))
The connection must be done in this way

ISP ----->> Cable Modem ---->> Wireless Router o Router ----->> Computer ( 1, 2, or more)

D Link wireless problem hooking up to 2 pcs


I assume you have an internet connection based on a phone line or cable with a modem attached to your router to your desktop -- when no computer can access the internet. When your desktop attaches directly to the modem without the router it works.

The following are the high probability errors there are many more.

This is indicative that the router may not configured correctly on the WAN side to connect to the ISP's modem. The requirements for this are generally capable of being retrieved from your ISP's website. Another possibility is that the DNS addresses wre not loaded into the routers lan side config or DHCP services may be disabled.

The same problems can be blocking wireless access although there can be others, too.

If you can provide your ISP's name or even better their a link to their support site in a comment that could start the process by which I can find those requirements for you. If you are not confortable configuring a router then I will also need confirmation of the model number of the D-Link Router, so I can assure we have the same version of the manual to reference configuration steps for you to execute.

I am going to give you a couple of other things to try, I'm not sure of they will work but if they do we will be closer to an answer.

Do these things when the desktop is hooked to the modem and when it is hooked to the router and from the laptop after you have attempted to connect to the router.

Open a command or dos prompt window

Start then All Programs then Accessories the Dos/Command Prompt

A new window will open in that window type the following command and press enter --

ipconfig /all

Copy down the following information if the command works
Adapter
IP Address -- probably 192.168.0.? if attached to the router
Subnet Mask --- probably 255.255.255.0 if attached to the router
Default Gateway -- probably 192.168.0.? if attached to the router
DNS Address(es) -- may be one or more

After than for each default gateway enter the following command replacing {default gateway} with the default gateways from the returned by the ipconfig command above (ignore 0.0.0.0 addresses) and press enter

ping (default gateway}

This command will respond 4 times either with a timeout or a line if data with elapsed time in ms (milliseconds). If it timesout all 4 times it fails, if it gets elapsed times all 4 times it worked, if it gets a mixture we may have a flaky cable or something but it is working but not well.

Now the important information is as follows

The DNS address from when the desktop was hooked to the modem should match the DNS addresses for both computers when connected to the router. I expect the desktop to successfully connect to the router on one adapter (in case there is more than one) For that adapter where the ping works
the subnet mask and the default gateway should match the ones received from the wireless adapter on the laptop. The beginning of the IP address for both the desktop and laptop should match the gateway address normally for the first three of the four numbers (only when the subnet mask is 255.255.255.0)

Please respond to this message with a comment indicating what you could do and what you found out so I can provide some next steps to complete this process. If you do not understand the address matching above send me the outputs of the ipconfig commands and tell me which gateway pings worked and I will make the judgements.
