Re: d-link

Hi Shaz,

Shutdown everyithing, including the PCs, on your network. Make sure your Ethernet cable from your internet, (Modem) if plugged into the WAN or internet port. Power up the Modem, wait 2 min. Power up the router, wait 2 min. Power to your PC. Go to STARTt>RUN>type in CMD. Press Enter. In the black bix that opens, type ICONIFG.
Look for your IP Address. It should be (X can be any number up to 254.) Subnet should be Gateway IP should be 192.168.x.1.
If your IP address is, you are not connecting to your router. Check your firewall settings, and connection.

Good Luck.

I have two computer,one desk next laptop .i can't connect to laptop, desk is connect.

To connect your computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh network list, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connect to your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is configured in the Wireless settings in the Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrase or WPA or WPA2 key that was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router. For information on securing your wireless network, configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in the laptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

Nvg510 no wireless

Hi, You can not use a router to connect a computer to another wireless router. You need to purchase a wireless adapter if you want to connect a computer wirelessly to the network. There seems no other way of doing this.

Laptop cannot pick up wireless from modem

Is your Wireless router integrated in the modem? If it is not, try to unplug the router for a few minutes then restore the power and see if it fixes the problem. If it is integrateddo the same for the modem. Try to connect using the laptop. If it does not work use the laptop to scan for new wireless locations and make sure you see the home location. If you do not your wireless router is not working, If so select the home location and enter any Web Encryption Protection and try to connect. If your wireless router is not working, make sure the preference for the router has the wireless function turned on. To do this use ether the software which you received with the router/modem or internet explorer to access the IP address of the router. If your router is configured for wireless use it may be a bad wireless router.

Need to get wireless on my laptop,

No, the SB5100 is just a cable modem, not a wireless router. You will need to keep your sb5100 but you will need to purchase a wireless router if you want wireless on your laptop. If you can also plug your laptop into the sb5100 via an ethernet cable for your internet connection. Linksys and Belkin and others make wireless routers that you can use for your wireless connections.
