Question about Routers
I have A D link router that's connected directly to the Internet service provider port without a modem. I have a lap top and with wireless card belkin. I cannot connect to the D link router from my lap top. I tried many times to put the IP address in the broowser but did not work. I have a message on the connection syas " limited or no connectivity to internet"
Debugging the issue -- this is not a solution.
Have you plugged a computer into the router if possible using an ethernet connection? Did it successfully access the internet?
If not the ISP (modem?) side of your router is probably configured incorrectly for your ISP
If that works wireless routers and adapters operate different bands I know of A, B, G and N. Do both your router and adapter card have at least one of those bands in common?
At any time have you attempted on the laptop to connect with the router? When connecting do you see your router by name? has your router been set to a unique name so you aren't confused seeing one of your neighbor's routers?
Did you enable encryption (WEP or WPA) in either the router or the wireless adapter and not enable it in the other?
Do you have MAC filtering on in you router and forgot to enter the wireless cards MAC accress?
Please reply with as many answers as you know and we can step through the process to attempt to complete the connection.
Also please provide the manufacturer and model for each of the following
Your router, your laptop and your network adapter
Please provide the operating system installed on your laptop,
If the wired connection to the internet does not work please provide the name of your internet service provider.
