Hi ladynb,

 

Open the DI-524 window by typing 192.168.0.1 into internet explorer address bar, and press enter.  Fill in your password, and press enter.  Click on the  Wireless button. This should open the Wireless Settings window for the 524.  Set SSID broadcast to  Enabled. Set Security to WEP.  Set Authentication to open system.  Set WEP Encryption to 64bit.   Set Type to HEX. Click and select radio button next to KEY1.  Enter a 10 digit number that you can remember, like 1234567890, or 1111122222.   Now click the Apply button at bottom of the screen.

Now any device that you wish to link  will will need to use this Key.   Scan for the router, connect and use Infrastructure mode, Type in the 10 digit number you were suppose to remember, and off you go.

f you are attempting to connect your Wii console online using a wireless router and you receive this error :

Ensure you are using a broadband or high speed internet connection such as cable, DSL, or fiber optics. Slower connections, such as dial up, may cause issues with the Wii or may not work properly.

Ensure there is no interfering devices by shutting off microwaves, cordless phones, wireless keyboards, and wireless mice.

Diable your firewall settings, as it may be causing a connection problem.


Try changing the channel of your wireless router to either channel 1 or channel 11 which can increase download speeds. Be sure to test both channels to see which works better or faster.

If your PC is using security features or programs such as a firewall, antivirus, or antispyware, check all settings of these security features or programs to allow a successful connection.

  • Nintendo Wi-Fi Connector USB (NintendoWFCReg.exe)
  • Setup.exe (when installing the USB Connector)
  • SoftAPInstDrv.bin
  • mdriver.exe

MY PS3 WILL NOT CONNECT TO MY WIRELESS ROUTER DLINK 615, everythink else does.


This will connect for the following reasons:

1. Check if the wireless security key is correct.
2. The wireless security key is at times case sensitive.
3. Try and connect to your own wireless network
4. Finally, check with other wireless devices at your place, if they are connecting.
5. If the security is high, lower down the wireless security type to 64-bit WEP

For verifying all this, contact your router vendor.

Thanks for asking.

Can I connect my ps3 to the internet using a secured connection from my neighbor with no router?


If you mean, can you use your neighbor's wireless with your PS3, then yes. Potentially. First, you'll want to have the permission of your neighbor, for legal reasons. Not to mention if their wireless is Secured, your going to need their assistance in connecting the PS3 to that router. If you have their blessing, then just follow the steps on the PS3 to set up a connection, and have your neighbor in the room or on the phone to give you the information when you need it.

If your trying to get access without them knowing, don't bother. If the connection is secure, your gonna waste a lot of time for nothing.

When trying to connect to the internet I get error


Hello :

Try adjusting the "Channel" your wireless router broadcasts on. I highly recommend setting your wireless router to either channel 1 or 11. This can increase the download speed.
Check your router's broadcast settings to find out if it is set to "G", "B", or "Mixed." Mixed typically works best, but try all three to see if it improves the network connection to the Wii console.
Make sure that any other interfering devices, such as microwaves and cordless phones, are turned off.
Wireless keyboards and mice may also cause interference.

If you provide details about your router , maybe i can help you how to set it correctly .

rate please !

I have s linksys wireless attached to our modem. we are losing the conection after about a 1.5 minutes. I also have the Linksys tranmitter in the basement where he plays. My son is. Does this sound like...


Hi,
If your son is playing wirelessly, could be too far away from the router,with too many walls for the signal to go through, also there could be other electrical goods interfering with the signal, would it be possible to either move the console closer to the router or to run a long ethernet cable from the router to the console,If you still lose connection it will be down to band width, so you may not be able to run any other laptops or game consoles at the same time, so if you want to use the computer, he will have to read a book ; )

MAC Book Pro unable to connect the wi-fi. Connection timed out er


Reset your wireless password/key. Login in using your browser and go to the wireless settings and set-up a wireless password/key. Remember the key because each device will now need it to connect. You can also turn OFF Broadcast SSID and your network name will not be shown on anyone's device. You must remember the network name when using this method.
