Hello,

What I would advise you to do is,

Uninstall the Network Adapter totally from the System first,

Then go to "scan for hardware changes",

This will bring up a prompt to install the new hardware found (Which is your Network Adapter).

In case its a Wireless Network adapter, After this, Press your Wifi button on the system and ensure that it is On, then Scan for wireless networks.

It should connect like that.

(In case you dont know how to uninstall the Adapter, Right-Click on my computer Icon, Properties, Device Manager, then select the Adapter under network adapters, and right click on it, then select uninstall.)

Hope this helps.
Goodluck

    My WUSB56GC Wireless adapter finds my Wireless signal from the DLINK DIR-615 OK, but then winds up with "Little or no Connectivity." The 'repair' function states "Unable to repair IP address. Any ideas on that?

    I should have mentioned that the Dlink router is working perfectly on the internet DSL line in the wired mode.

Set up epson workforce 600 printer wifi via dlink dir615


Configure the IP address range your wireless printer, (this is done through the printer's menu settings) make sure it matches the IP address range on your wireless network, it maybe 192.168.1.*** then configure the wireless printer with a fixed IP address with the same IP address range but higher address eg. 192.168.1.10 so it does not clash with any other IP addresses.
Next install the printer driver normally.
Then configure the printer Properties.
Click Start - Printers and faxes - right click on the Brother printer - click Properties - Port tab - click Add Port - Standard TCP/IP port -
Port Name eg. 192.168.1.10
Printer name eg Network printer
Click OK
Then do a TEST print if it does not work then the IP address is probably incorrect.

Tip

IP Conflicts in a work place


An IP address conflict occurs when two computers on a LAN or the Internet have been assigned the same IP. IP conflicts between two computers normally render either one or both of them unusable for network operations.

How IP Address Conflicts Happen

Two computers can acquire conflicting IP addresses in any of several ways:

· A system administrator assigns two computers on the LAN the same Static IP Address.

· A system administrator assigns a computer a static IP address within the local network's DHCP range (dynamic IP range), and the same address is automatically assigned by the LAN DHCP server.

· A malfunction in the network's DHCP server allows the same dynamic address to automatically be assigned to multiple computers.

· An ISP accidentally assigns two customers the same IP address (either statically or dynamically).

· A mobile computer is put into standby / hibernate mode and then awakened later.

Note that other forms of IP conflicts can also occur on a network. For example, one computer may experience an IP address conflict with itself if that computer is configured with multiple Network Adapters. System administrators may also create IP conflicts by accidentally connecting two ports of a network switch or router to each other.

Recognizing IP Address Conflicts

On most Microsoft Windows computers, if you attempt to set a fixed (static) IP address that is already active on the local network, you will receive the following pop-up error message:

The static IP address that was just configured is already in use on the network. Please reconfigure a different IP address.

On newer Microsoft Windows computers having dynamic IP conflicts, you should receive a balloon error message in the Taskbar as soon as the operating system detects the issue:

There is an IP address conflict with another system on the network.

Sometimes, especially on older Windows computers, a message similar to the following may instead appear in a pop-up window:

The system has detected a conflict for IP address...

On Mac or Linux computers, a similar message will normally appear on screen.

Resolving IP Address Conflicts

Try the following remedies for IP conflicts:

1. For networks where IP addresses are fixed (statically assigned), ensure each local host is configured with a unique IP address.

2. If your computer has a dynamically assigned address, releasing and renewing its IP address can workaround IP address conflicts.
3. If your home router is believed to have a faulty DHCP server causing IP conflicts on the home network, upgrading the router firmware may resolve this problem.

Forgot pass word


The only way around a forgotten password is to reset the Router. The D-Link DIR615 has a reset button on the back of the router next to the power cord. You will have to use a pen tip or paper clip to press the button and it will return the factory default. The default IP address will then need to be typed into the address bar of your browser (192.168.0.1). The user ID will be Admin and the password is Admin. I hope this Helps!

How do i secure my router dir615


You can secure your wireless network wit WEP or WAP code.
For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.0.1
or
http://192.168.1.1
For belkin router http://192.168.15.1
or
http://192.168.2.1

If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.
Click on wireless settings then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It is your password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router.
Then you can connect your wi fi network with that code.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Same problem


Your router should be factory reset. There is a reset button on the unit that will require a paper-clip to reset. With the unit 'on' press and hold the factory reset button.

Your PC should be set to automatically acquire a suitable IP Address form the router. The router is also set to automaticlaly acquire the right IP address from your ISP. However somtetimes you may need to put in a 'username' and 'password'.

What are the settings for windows 98 for d-LINK DIR615 ROUTER


In control panel, find the network applet and double click it. in the white box, locate TCP/IP(Internet Protocol) and select that, then click properties

Make sure you're set to DHCP which should, once you're physically connected to your router, obtain an IP address and DNS server addresses automatically

Having problem installing my dlink dir615 router


First, is the problem truly that you can't get an IP address from the router or is it that you can't get on the internet. I will touch base with both issues briefly. Many newly placed routers need the MAC address cloned within the router setup to register with the ISP and recieve internet access. If the PC is truely not recieving an IP from the router, make sure DHCP is turned on and set a range of address you wish use. Tip: limit the number of addresses to only what you will actually use. Make sure your computer is set to recieve an IP automatically and you have the proper client, service and protocols running. Basically, If the PC will run directly from the cable modem, then it should run from the router also. If the PC will not obtain an address from the modem directly then your winsocket may be corrupt. Malware will often do this. It is easily repaired and there are many winsock32 repair tools on the net. Just Google "winsock repair" without the quotes and you will find a multitude of software.

Acquiring Address Problem


you will need to make sure that DHCP is enabled within the routers settings as this will tell the router to assign ip addresses automatically, then go to network connections, right click on your network card>properties>TCP/IP line>properties and tick 'obtain an ip address automatically', click ok, close window and restart pc.

Having Problem Acquiring IP Address


when using the range extender you have to make sure you set the SSID, channel & wireless key in the range extender the exact same as the router also it has to be in the same IP range so if the router IP address is 192.168.0.1 the range extender IP address has to change from 192.168.1.240 to 19.168.0.240. Hope that helps.
