    I have a Geteway Laptop with Windows vista premium which is great but per your instructions could not make the router work. Technical support on Sunday via phone was no help. My ISP is Optimum ON-Line and they were helpful but told me you needed to do the fix.

Dear Ditditong,

First is your wifi switch on the compaq enabled. It is suppose to be lighted and an icon on the task bar will tell you it is.

Second, check your Wifi OS set-up if properly done ; if not use the windows wizard to accomplish this.

Third, Make sure your D-link has been properly set-up for wireless set-up to be able for you to access the router. The manual might have information along this line.

I have an hp compaq and it connects everywhere except my house?

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

Internet connection on compaq presario 2100

If you have a DSL connection or Cable and hook up a new computer, you may have to reset the hardware (turn it off and on). If you have a Cable connection which you also use for a phone, you will have to also remove the battery from the modem to reset it.
I am assuming that when you go into the device manager you see the network adapter and it doesn't have any caution symbol or an "x" on it to indicate a problem.
You must also be sure you are not using an ethernet cable that is damaged.
If you are trying to connect wirelessly, you must have a router that is properly configured and your wireless adapter must be enabled on your computer.
