I have recently bought a second pc for my home, and have bought the dkt 110 router, however i am experiencing problems connect it to my 1st pc. It is saying that i need to check my cables, over and over again.
But according to the router and the internet, both are connected. Then when i try and connect the dongle to the 2nd pc it is saying that it cant find the device. or the windows hasnt recongnised the device.
Any advice on this subject would be most appreciated.

Re: dlink dkt-110 wireless router
All right, according to your question, i'll asssume your pc running with win xp..first connect the wireless card to the computer and restart it, the card should be detected, you should get a found new hardware screen then insert the cd and continue installation..if you do not get the screen check in a diff pc if you stillk do not get the message.. the problem is with the pc card or else with the pc where you are trying to install the card/..

To connect wireless to a network ..you need a wireless router or access to a near by one ..and you need to install a wireless card on computer if it has non ..This can be a pci card and you will install it on a pci slot inside and install its driver and after that connect to the network available ..or use a wireless card on usb .. If you do not have a network free near by ..you can connect using the wireless card to another computer connected to the internet ..or install a wireless router on your Ethernet cable ..and a card in computer or a usb one .. In my opinion the wireless card and router is the best way cause connecting trough another computer can be tricky and slow.. another way ..if you do not have any other means is to use a wireless modem on usb from a mobile network ISP (internet service provider ) This can be the same provider as your mobile phone one ..
ok first prep. we need to configure your router. to do that we need your compaq laptop directly connected to the dlink via ethernet cable. after securing the connection, try to open a browser, whether internet explorer or mozilla firefox. go to the address bar and type in, 192.168.1.1 it would ask you now for a username. username is " admin " password is " password " if it wont let you in, try "admin" for password. if it still cant, try to live it blank and just click on login. it would take you now to the dlink router page. there you can configure your wireless connection and set your network name. make sure to click apply settings after configuring it. then try to check your wireless connectivity again. this should work.
I DON'T THINK YOU CAN RUN 2 ROUTERS ON THE SAME NETWORK UNLESS ONE IS USED AS AN ACCESS POINT.
1. Connect as local device or bridge - If connecting the second router via Ethernet cable, plug it into one of the LAN ports on the first router. If connecting the second router wirelessly, ensure the second router is set for client mode. Note that some home wireless routers do not support client mode; these must be connected by cable. Check your router documentation for details on its client mode configuration support.
2. Check / change IP address - Most home network routers use a default IP address setting. Often, these default IP addresses will not work in a two router environment. Check the second router's IP address value and reset it if necessary to work within the valid address range of the first router (and to not conflict with any other device on the network).
3. Disable DHCP - To avoid IP address conflicts between all of the devices on the home network, only one of your two routers should assign addresses via DHCP. All mainstream routers provide an option to disable DHCP as part of the router's configuration screens.
Instead of adding a second wired router to an existing network, consider adding a network switch instead. A switch accomplishes the same goal of extending the size of a network, but it does not require any IP address or DHCP configuration, greatly simplifying configuration. Readers Respond:
Ok, install the drivers from the CD that came with the card, if you do not have these download them from D-link. After you have installed them, you then use that Ethernet adapter to connect to a Router/Modem, the Router, or Modem then connects to the Internet. Your Laptop connects to the Router/Modem, and then you can access the Internet.
The second computer's wireless card may not have the latest wireless card driver installed or it is not enabled and working. Check Device manager to see if is is working and enabled. I suggest you install the latest wireless card driver.
Next check the wireless card configuration, it needs to have the wireless router's settings, ie SSID and encryption etc.

Did you load the DLink software onto your computer?If so you have to configure the DLink control Panel to recognize the Internal wireless card in the computer.You may also need to take the wireless card out and restart your computer,then shut it back down and reinstall the card so the computer can recognize the card and reinstall the drivers.If it cant find suitable drivers it wont install.While you have the card out look at the brand and version number and try to download software to desktop to install in case windows cant find any.If you have a cat5 (ethernet) cable you can go hard wired till you get the wireless working.
A little confusing this, it would not say 'Network cable unplugged'
if windows was refering to your D-link wireless connection(It's wireless)
The cable unplugged should be refering to your Wired Ethernet card, so there must be no cable connected at one or other end.
You don't mention anything about what the wireless card is trying to connect to(eg Wireless modem/router or another wireless PC).
Maybe your pc is getting confused as to whether you wish to connect wirelessly or wired, as it can only work through one IP Address at a time.
i could be wrong, but you probably thought that they were working but only one was, you really need to explain why you are using both wired and wireless and what is connected to what,
Please reply and hopefully it'll get sorted
