Laptop not seeing my wireless router

I have a new laptop with vista operating systern
I bought a D-Link router DSL - 2640B and set it up so that I can have the desktop wired to it and the laptop as wireless and everything was fine then all of a sudden the laptop doesn't pick up the Router
I've gone through everything and even reset the router but it still doesn't work , the laptop picks up other connection in the area so I'm certain that the wireless adapter inside the laptop is ok - Help !!!

    I have a Westell 327 DSL connected through Verizon. It has worked well for over two years. About 10 days ago, the wireless stopped working. Tivo can no longer connect and the two laytops I use for work no longer connect. Both laptops show the network, but both indicates it to be an adhock peer-to-peer network. Is there any way to set the modem to make this an internet connection again or has the modem failed? The hard wired ethernet connection continues to work fine.

    I recently bought the wireless router. It was connected through a cable modem. It was connected to my laptop and pc. We recently had a thunderstorm. Now It will not connect to my computers. The cable modem says everything is fine. The router says it is connected to both computers but I am still unable to go online. Please help!

You can also try disabling any security (momentarily of course just for testing) and try. If if does connect, then try resetting key or your encryption/security. Good luck.

Try to manually "Add device to network" by using the wireless setup wizard. Check to see if the Wireless Zero Configuration service is "Running" before trying to add device. Yuo may also want to disable IPv6 in vista tcp/ip properties page.

I have bought a wireless ADSL modem, Dlink DSL 2640u , How can I install and use it for another laptop? I want to use it without wire. Thanks


all wireless devices must be allowed in the router by either MAC address or by name. This is accomplished by logging into to the router and setting up the device in with the wireless setup feature in your router. The router will not allow the device to connect without permissions.

You said that your are using it as a wired connection and I believe the wired connection is working properly.
The you will need to open the router set up page and create a new wireless network or check the wireless settings of the router.
Once you get the wireless settings of the router , you will need to connect to the wireless network on the wireless computer. it depends on the operating system on your computer.

Pleasssssssssse help : on router G624T


What is the Operating system on the laptop ?
If it is XP then in the bottom right hand corner you will find Wireless network connection ( looks like 1 computer monitor). Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is windows Vista, then in the bottom right hand corner you will find 2 computer monitor icon. Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is Windows 98/ME/2000 then use the adapter utility to connect to the wireless network.
For MAC you will see the AIRPORT icon at the top.

Check the wireless settings of the router first . Make sure that yopu have all the wireless settings of the router. If you are not sure about the settings, then open the router set up and check the settings.

Need to find network key so i can place on my labtop


You need to log into the router's setup page, with D-Link it is usually 192.168.0.1. It will ask you for the password. Default is usually admin. When you log in, go to the wireless tab and then security. There you will see the security key.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
