Question about Computers & Internet
A new router is just one piece of the network. The components work with one another and depend on ALL the components working in harmony, you might say. One piece will not guarantee improvement in a network. Do more research, what are the Network adapters connecting? What is my ISP speed, remember, your speed will differ, sometime greatly for advertised ISP speeds. The factors are infinite, unknown, and sometimes out of your control. That said if you are using a 802.11 N or AC Wireless in your Home Network, depending on the Computer, Printer, etc. Network Adapters, etc. I use 3 different Access Points, 2 Linksys wrt54g's, 1 wrt160n , all with different SSID's and channels, connecting to 2 printers 2 Laptops, 2 desktops, iPad, Smart HDTV/Netflix, Phone, all work quite well. As I move about the devices will switch to the best signal. Remember the old saying, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". But I always try, with different levels of success . You may learn a new way not to do something, I do. Some people call it a mistake.

from what you say, it sounds as if you have your wired and wireless card connected at the same time. This will confuse the router as it is trying to give two different ip addresses to the one pc, which it cannot do. If you are using the wireless adapter, make sure you dissable the wired adapter as the router will continually look for the wired ip address while allocating your wireless adapter causing instability. Next ensure you have a good clear signal from router to notebook as this can obviously cause problems. Lastly ensure that the wireless cards TCP/IP properties are set to obtain ip address automatically, especially if your router is DHCP enabled to allocate ip addresses automatically.

The message "a network cable is unplugged" indicates that the networking cable was removed or not connected properly either at the back of your PC or at the Ethernet port of the router. Perhaps you can remove and re-insert back and please verify that you hear a click when inserted right. At times, the cable itself maybe at fault, pls replace if necessary.
It is not necessary to install the router software on the new machine or tweak any settings if your new machine is set to auto obtain network configuration.
Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things worked out or should you need additional information.
good luck and kind regards.

for reseting the password of ur dlink router u have to press the rest button on the dlink router (genrallyit on the bottom or on the back of the router it is like a hole u have to use a pen or pin to reset the router back to its factory default settings after that password of the router will automatically back to admin or password login to ur router change the settings to static ip in the router so that u can provide the static ip of the other router to ur this router (example if primary router HL 2170 ip address is 192.168.1.1 then u will provide this dlink router the ip address as 192.168.1.5, subnet 255.255.255.0 default gateway 192.168.1.1 primary dns 192.168.1.1 now save the settings in the dlink router now the ethernet cable from ur other router will go directly in to the internetor wan port of this router. now connect wirelessly to any router both will work fine without any problem
