Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router
I'm using an HP-pavillion PCU, with a victa OS as my main computer, and another HP CPU with Windows xp as my second computer. I'm using a D-link (DI504) as a router, and a road runner lite (cable) as my internet. My problem is that when I try to open the internet, on my second computer II can't open the browser on it
Please provide the answers needed for the web link so that I can access the Road Runner help site and learn about your connection -- use link below -- please do not inclide your Road Runner UserID or Password -- I do not want to access your account -- just Road Runner help.
Road Runner probably provided you a box that your cable and wireless router both plug into -- look on it possibly the bottom for a manufacturer name and model number - I may need that information too when accessing road runner's help service.

I am going to assume Vista is the first OS and both machines are windows computers and you are accessing the cable service through a DI-524 wireless router. There are many issues that can relate to your problem. First does your cable provider require you to logon to access the internet. If so, try using each computer individually (with the other one logged off and shutdown) with the existing wireless connection. If this works both machines are configured correctly for the router and the issue appears to be dealing with the logon possibly having it performed by the router if possible. Second if that does not work -- on each machine bring up a command prompt window (Start > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt) and type ipconfig and press enter. There may be multiple local area connections but look for one with a 192.168.?.? address on each machine. The first question mark should be the same on both machines and the second different. If this works both machines have connected to the router and we are seeking another issue. If this is not true one machine has a configuration problem and cannot access the wireless router (probably the Windows ZP computer from you description). We will need to diagnose further once you answer the above questions.
