Go to a computer that is already connected to the network or connect the new laptop to the router with a cable. Once you have access to either of the two options click on start and go to RUN. Type CMD and then in the CMD window type IPCONFIG. You'll get an IP address and default gateway (Eg. 192.168.0.1). Note the Default gateway. Open Internet Explorer and type the default gateway ip address in the address bar and hit enter. You'll be prompted for a username and password. Onmost it is either Username - admin Password - password or admin admin if you have'nt chnaged it. Once in tghe router home page go to the wireless eetup and check the passkey there or change it. Use the key from the page to connect. if you change the key you'll have to reconnect all systems to the network again with the new key.

Rate if useful.

How do i set up my dlink to work with my new laptop.currently it is conected to my desktop computer. trying to manually add my wireless conection. Need to know my Network Name(1-32case sensitive...


Your laptop should be able to automatically find the network name and security type. (You would have set up all of this, by the way.)
You should then type in your security key/password (you should have set this up when setting up router for first time, also) and then you should be connected to the internet.
Your laptop might not have wireless capabilities, so you might have to buy a wireless network adapter.

How can i find out my old password and reset it so i can add another lap top


The network security key (password) is the router's wireless encryption key.
To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router's wireless settings configured ie SSID WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

I want to add my laptop to my desktop's network, but I don't know what my security key is


Unless you printed that information off or saved to a text file after you set up the wireless security, you are not going to find it. There is an option though, if you know how to get into the router settings on the web browser, then you change the security key in the wireless security settings tab, then change all the devices in the home to that key.
