Question about D-Link AirPlus Xtreme G DI-624 Wireless Router (DI624RE)
I had to start computer back to factory specs. Reinstalled DI-624 drivers and wireless card. Message says I am connected to network but have limited or no connectivity. I've rebooted, reinstalled, etc. What do I do now?
Wireless Troubleshooting Checklist
1. Unplug power from Router and Modem for 3 mins.
2. Restart computer.
3. Make sure your wireless device is active:
a. Verify that your wireless device is turned on. Some laptops have a physical hardware switch located on the case. Make sure this is in the ‘On’ position. Other laptops use a Function Key combination (e.g. Dell uses Fn+F2, IBM uses Fn+F5)
b. Open Network Connections (from the System Tray or from the Control Panel). Verify that your wireless Connection is Enabled. If not, right-click on your wireless connection and select ‘Enable.’

To reconnect quickly, click Start, Run in XP (or press the Windows key in Vista), type ipconfig /renew, and press Enter. 5. Check for interference.

If other wireless devices can connect to your router and only your computer can't. a. Try deleting your wireless profile. If you are using the built in wireless for windows go to Control Panel> Network Connections right click on Wireless Network Connection and select View Avaliable Networks. On the left hand side under Related Tasks click on "Change the order of preferred networks" select your network name and click remove. Now try reconnecting to it. Be sure to type in the correct security key. b. Disable your software firewall. 6. If you can connect to the router but not the internet. a.
