Wireles conection problem

I have bought last year an wireless dlink router kit with USB wireless receiver stick included. I have easily configured it and it works perfectly.
My laptop, with included wireless card conects ok, but the other computer that I have at home connects only via cable from the router.
If I insert the receiver stick it doesn't sense the conection. Sometimes it connected, but only for a short time. The stick seems to be active (leds working) and I have installed the configuration program for it. Please tell me what to do with it...

    Thanks for the response!

    I have a dlink hub that has both the wireless and cable capabilities.

    In the same package a USB stick receiver has been included and when I
    connect it to my desktop computer the above problem happens. I am using
    only one Internet service provider, as far as I know. Please tell me
    how to disconect the RJ45... I do not know how. Thank you again and
    excuse me for my ignorance...

    Appears you are having a cable internet connection.

    When you try the USB stick,in the Desktop( ?)

    you are using two ISP's and either of them will work but not together.

    Disconnect the Rj45 from router to Desktop and test. and give feedback.

I've run into this issue with USB wireless network cards from DLink, Linksys, and Netgear. For me, the issue was with the USB ports on the PC and not having enough power for the device, the connection would stay live for a random amount of time and then all of a sudden it would die (same thing would happen when resuming from hibernation or standby). I added a PCI card with a powered USB hub in it and it solved my problem.

Hope this info helps!

It seems as though your router was reset to the default settings.
In this case, you need to connect to the "DLINK" network and reconfigure the router.

If you have the disk, you can use that to run the setup, or you can log onto the router itself and configure the settings.

To log onto the router, open a internet window and type in in the address bar.
This will log you into the router.
Now simply select "wireless" and then wireles security and you should be able to set up the password again.

Wirels connectiuon

you cannot just connect two routers one after the other- what you need to do is to set the wireless router as a "Wireless switch" - it means that it won't preforme as a router it will preform just as a broadcasting device.

you also need to set it to be on the same subnet that the first router is on- since you didn't specify the make and type of the first router it will be very hard to answer this question.
what I suggest is that you call the support of either the wireless router or the other router company and they let them know that you need to "set the wireless router as a switch to the first router" and they will be able to guide you how to do it.
