Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Router I have a Dlink DIR-615 wireless router.  Everything will be working fine on my laptop and then I'll click on Mozilla or Explorer to search for something on the Internet and the page reads "server not found."  At the same time I can still use Skype to make calls from my laptop and I can still send and receive email through Outlook.  Other times I loose all connections to the Internet - no Skype, no email, no search engines. To reconnect I have to unplug the wireless router, disable the wireless on my laptop, wait a minute, plug the wireless router back in, wait another minute and enable the wireless on my laptop.  Kind of defeats the purpose of having wireless...  Any suggestions?

Does your computer connect to the Internet okay at other wireless locations? Make sure you have the latest drivers in your laptop for the wireless network adapter. You should also verify that you have the latest Windows updates installed.

Is your computer sometimes used in a business network?? If so, make sure the "use proxy" setting has been disabled in your browser when using the dlink router.

Check the D-link website at http://www.dlink.com/products/support.asp?pid=565&sec=0#firmware to verify that you are using the latest version of firmware on your router. If it has any known problems, a firmware upgrade could fix it.

Let me know if you need more details on any of these points. Hope this helps!

In the web interface of dir-615 switch it to router mode, adjust wan connection (username, password... depend on your Internet provider, in fact, it is easier to ask their tech support to provide all necessary information) then configure wireless network.

Dlink DIR 615, network name changed, won't accept password


It appears your brother has changed your wireless router settings.
You can reset the Dlink back to the default settings by -
Power off the Dlink and press and hold the RESET button on the back of the Dlink and the power on the Dlink. Hold the RESET button for 5 secs. until the LEDs flash at the same time.
Connect a LAN cable from the computer to the Dlink. Open a browser and enter the Dlink's configuration URL
http://192.168.0.1
Default login = admin
PW = blank (just press Enter)
You can now change the admin password and set up a new passphrase (ie encryption)
