Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Router connections I have Dlink router in 2 different homes and I connect to them through my Dell laptop. In home 1, in other cities, and with unknown location routers in home 1 I can connect fine.  I get good signal strength and I can connect to the outside through Firefox. In home 2 in can connect through unknown location routers and I can connect to the router in home 2. (Connection defined as having good signal strength and speed.) However, in home 2 I can not get outside through Firefox. I keep getting "poor or limited connection quality" because the computer cannot get an IP address assigned to it automatically. I have windows defender runnig all the time and I have not changed any settings between Homes or when I can get on routers that allow me to connect.  I have tried resetting the router seveal times but I cannot get it to stay connected.  I am also using a wireless booster to extend the wireless range in the house.  It has two lights on it to display the status.  For some reason the light that indicates it is connected to the router drops out every now and then.  I am trying to connect when the system is up and normal.  I don't think this has anything to do with the problem but I thought I'd mention it. There is also another wireless laptop on home 2 that is operating next to the router without any problems. I'm not sure where to look given all the conditions I mentioned.  I would appreciate any help possible.  Thanks. Please respond to bob@aqcnow.com

If you have a laptop in home 2 that is able to connect with NO issues whatso ever I would almost think its a security issue... Do you use the same kind of encryption on both home 1 and 2? (ie WPA or WEP)

I have a dlink n150 router dir-600L. i tried to configured it and changed the SSID and network key. the problem is, i cannot connect it to the wireless connection even though the network appears on my


Did you enter the security key (password)? It may be your laptop? Try resetting the D-Link to default settings and connecting to the laptop. They reconfigure the SSID and Security Key. Write down the info for future use. Here's a user Manual: http://www.dlink.com/uk/en/home-solutions/connect/routers/dir-600-wireless-n-150-home-router

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.

Globe symbol won't turn green.


I was banging my head for 2 days with about 35 different configurations and finally tried the following and it worked just fine. Also, tried connecting 3 computers and they all connected with "NO" issues. Even connected wireless with "NO" issues. Now I am at 20mb download speed...J compared to AT&T 1.5mb download speed.

This is my DLINK model -> (DIR-601 Wireless N 150 Home Router Wireless router)


1. Reset your Comcast Surfboard Cable Modem by unplugging it for 5 minutes.

2. Then reset your DLINK Router to the manufactures default settings. Then Unplug DLINK Router for 1 minute then plug it back in (Just plug your cat5 cable into port 1 and connect it to your computer) there should not be anything else plugged into the DLINK Router at the time you make the changes. Just 1 computer can be connected.

3. Went into the DLINK configuration 192.168.0.1 and changed the PPPOE setting that I was using for my AT&T Modem to Dynamic IP (DHCP). Once you make the changes save them and then unplug your DLINK Router it's off.

4. Turn on Comcast Surfboard Cable Modem and wait until all lights are on. Now plug in a cat5 cable from the Surfboard Comcast modem (NOT A CROSSOVER CABLE LIKE THE CD INDICATES) to the INTERNET port of your DLINK Router. Now turn on your DLINK router.

5. Then turn on your computers or restart them and it will pick up IP Addresses from your DLINK Router
