Re: Network and router issue.

Go to the properties of each wireless network card in network connections in your control panel and click on the TCP/IP line and click properties again and ensure obtain ip address automatically is selected and click ok, restart pc. Next, reset the router at the rear if possibe with a pointed implement, then you need to get into the routers settings ( in your web browser) and look for DHCP, and enable it so as to give your pc's there automatic ip addresses, also check in the general settings if it's a modem router that you have got a internet connection from your ISP and all the dns and ip addresses are showing. Restart all pc's if neccasary and refresh your web browser when trying to get online.

When I route my cable line through router I cnnot get an internet connection. It was working fine until recently. I have had this router for a while and it was working fine but now no connection and no...

sounds like you recently upgraded your Pc or software, maybe even just a driver update? If so it will help figure out your problem.
Always try to reboot your network(router,modem,pc,laptop)for at least 30 sec, usually its a communication error or a firewall issue that blocks router access, and then again it could be a driver or software compatibility problem. email me with more info if you still need help

Is there any computer connected to the router ?
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router.
Do not change any wireless settings on the router with the wireless computer.
you will need to connect the computer to the router with the Ethernet cable.
check the IP address of the computer.
open the router set up page of the router.

Wi-fi throufh dlink router has worked fine in past on my laptop. Recently the operating system was replaced and it will not connect- message is 'wireless network connection doesn't have a valid IP...

Operating System? Sounds like you might need to reinstall your router. the valid ip configeration issue probably happened because once a router hooks up to the internet it has a set ip address but since the operating system changed your's and your friends computer don't recignize it. If reinstalling the router doesn't work then you should try asking whoever changed the operating system.

Icouldn't access the internet. Your help tam, via

Please go in to your router and change the wireless setting from WPA2-PSK to WEP. Ansd then try to connect your laptop.
To windows after you change setting to WEP
(XP bottom right hand side you have system tray in that you have a wireless sign click on it. It ask for the password which you will change put that password click connect)
For laptop also same in case it not work then
(window icon>control panel>network and sharing center>wireless connection>properties>put the password click connect (then it will check out the wireless signal after sometime you will'be able to connect).
Hope this will resolve your issue.

Dlink router, Dell laptop - no connectivity - won't renew IP

resetting netsh was a good start. I would suggest starting with pulling the power on the router for about 5 to 10 minutes and then plugging it back in. give it a couple of minutes to reconnect to the modem and then try connecting to it again wirelessly. I had an issue with my dlink gigabit that stumped me and a cold reboot was the only thing that worked
