    Who is your ISP? Is the D-Link device set to DHCP?

Well the modem should be connected to the UPLINK port on the router(the port without a number) both computers should be connected to the numbered port. Ensure you do NOT have a problem with one of your cables.

I have a Dell XPS 1330 laptop and a DI-524 wireless router.


Unsure what your problem is exactly but here is something to try. Power off all computers, modem and router. Power up the modem first, and wait until it is completely up before proceeding. Next power up the router and wait until it is completely up, the only light that probably wont be lit is the LAN light. Then power up each computer, they can all be powered on at the same time, that part really doesnt matter. See if that fixes the problem.

I hit the reset button on the router and now I can't connect to my wireless network. How do I fix this?


Try turning everything off- pc, modem, router, other pcs and periferals on the network, wait 10 minutes, then start turning everything on gradually- pc, modem router, etc. Hopefully everything will reset ok.

Please help...internet won't connect


You may be running into a problem of your ISP only allowing one computer on the internet. while the internet is on can you access the internet from the desktop comcast originally setup?  If so that is more then likely your problem.

I have comcast myself and they told me they do not allow home networks. I fixed that problem by using the mac address cloning feature in my router.

The setup cd is also junk, all you should really need to do is:
1. unplug modem, router, and turn off computers
2. Plug modem into router
3. Plug computers into router (don't worry about wireless right now)
4. Turn on modem, wait 20 seconds or so for lights to set,
5. Turn on router. again wait for lights to set
6. Turn on ONE computer that is hard wired into the router
7 Try to surf the net.
8. If successfull try to connect wireless computers (Without using cd) and see if they surf.

If not call comcast and see if your computers are trying to obtain real-world ip's instead of LAN ip's like they should.
If so, you'll need to enable DHCP on the router.

Can't connect a PC to internet via rangemax


Sounds like the network card on the 3rd computer might be set to a manual ip address. Is the rangemax router the dhcp server? if so is the network card on the 3rd computer set to obtain an ip address automatically?

can you tell me the ip address of the rangemax router?
whats the ip address of the 3rd pc?

Thanks,
Brad
