Question about D-Link DI 514 Wireless Router (DI-514)
I was attempting to change the password to access my wireless network. I was following the manual for the DI-514 2.46Hz wireless router. I was unsure which option to choose when asked to Select your Internet Option. I chose Dynamic IP address. I proceeded to put in the keypass.When I came to this part it asked for the level of encryption, I chose 128 bit. When I tried the test connection I also chose Internet Protocol, ad Obtin an IP address automatically .Since doing that I am now unable to access the Internet with my laptop unless I am hardwired into the modem. When I try to connect to my wireless network it keeps saying it is "Acquiring Network Address" - but it cannot seem to find it. I have unplugged both the modem and the router - actually left it overnight. I have gone to "system restore" and tried to bring the system back to 2 weeks ago -- before I attempted this. Can you please help me? Thank you
Firstly system restore will not fix that issue.
This is a router issue, I beleave its when you changed it to Dynamic.
In most (most i mean 95%) of ISP they will set you to DHCP, which you probably saw to be one of the options you could choose. DHCP basically sets your IP address,dns servers,etc.. for you, in Dynamic you need to manually enter those and your isp does that for you.
Try to go in and change it to "DHCP" and take the pass off, then if you get internet, try going back and leaving it to DHCP, and set the WEP to 64 bit. It should generate your passhass and thats what you use to connect to the network, not the pass that you generated with.
If you still can't get it, I can offer to remotely control your PC and fix the issue for you.

Tips for a great answer:
wireless network is comprised of a wireless router, a computer (or
other wireless-enabled devices), a high-speed modem, and a subscription
to an Internet Service Provider (ISP). Netgear is a popular
manufacturer of wireless networking hardware that allows users to set
up a secured wireless network. In order to prevent unauthorized users
from logging onto your wireless network to gain access the Internet,
and in order to protect the data you transmit and receive online, you
should change your wireless router's security settings to create a
secured wireless network.
1 Install the router. To install a Netgear wireless router, use an Ethernet cable to connect the router to the cable/DSL modem and use another Ethernet cable to connect the router to your computer. Make sure all of these devices are powered off as you connect them. Once connected, turn on the cable/DSL modem, the router, then the computer, in that order. Allow at least two minutes to pass after turning on each device to give the devices time to recognize one another
2 Log in to the router. Open a web browser and type in the router's address to load the router's settings page. The router's address can be found in the user guide or setup CD that came with your router, or you can download a user guide from Netgear's technical support page (see Resources). Most Netgear routers use one of the following addresses: http://192.168.1.1; http://www.routerlogin.net; or http://www.routerlogin.com. Press "Enter" or click "Go" in your web browser after you have entered the address.
3 Enter the router's username and password. A prompt will appear on the screen when you enter your router's address, requiring you to enter a username and password before you can access the router's settings page. The default username for Netgear routers is "username" and the password is "password." Because the textboxes are case-sensitive, you must enter both of these using all lowercase letters. Press "Enter" to log in to the router and begin changing its security settings.
4 Open the security settings menu. The router's home page has multiple links for changing settings. Find and click the "Security Settings" link to change the router's security settings.
5 Change the SSID, choose an encryption setting and create a password. The default name (or "SSID") of your wireless network will be "NETGEAR." Enter a new, memorable name for your wireless network to help detract would-be hackers from trying to access your router, as most novice computer users with unsecure networks do not know how to change the default network name or institute any other security features. Newer Netgear routers offer WPA or WPA-PSK encryption to secure your network, both of which provide high levels of security. Select either of these. encryption types and create a unique password. This will require all users to enter the password before they can log in to your wireless network. It is important that you create a complex password that has several characters, including numbers. Once you have created a password, click "Confirm Password" to save it. To exit the security settings menu and log off of the router, click "Save" or "Apply" to save the changes you made, then click "Logout" to exit the route

* Netgear wireless router
* High-speed Internet service provider (e.g., Comcast, AT&T, Insight)
* Cable/DSL modem

This is the User name and
the password of the router and NOT
the wireless password. On a wireless router, there are 2 passwords. One
is to access the router and the other one is for the wireless network.
For most of the routers the default password
will be " admin " . for some routers the default password is " password
". For Linksys router the default password is admin and no user name.

- Access the router's web-based setup page.
- Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer.
- Go to the Address bar and enter your router's IP address ("192.168.1.1" is the default IP of most Linksys routers) then press [Enter].
NOTE: If the IP address of the router has been changed, type the router's IP address in the Address bar instead.
- A new window will prompt for a User name and Password. Leave the User name field blank then enter your router's password ("admin" is the default password), then click OK.
- NOTE: If the password of the router has been changed, type the router's new password in the Password field instead.
Step2: When the router's web-based setup page appears, look for MTU and set it to Manual. Enter the MTU value of your Internet connection in the Size field.
1468. The size DHCP or cable providers prefer.
1400. Maximum size for DSL.
Step3: Save settings.
If you run into Intermittent Wireless Connections Using a Router:
Check if your wireless computers have stable connection when connected to other wireless networks. Regular wireless disconnection can be caused by different factors such as: > Wireless interference within the network. > Wireless settings of the Linksys router are still set to default. > Firmware is corrupted.
NOTE: If the procedure does not work, needs to update the router
Check if your wireless computers have stable connection when connected to other wireless networks.
Regular wireless disconnection can be caused by different factors such as:
