If you go to control panel, then to internet options, on the connections tab, click the LAN settings button. Make sure there aren't any boxes checked, then hit OK, and hit OK again to get out of there.

If your connection is still not working, go to Network Connections in control panel. Right-click your wireless connection and go to properties. There will be a list of items with checked boxes. Scroll down to the Internet Protocol(tcp/ip). Click it one time to highlight it, then click the properties button. Make sure your settings are Obtain IP address automatically. And Obtain DNS server address automatically.

You should be working. If not, let me know.

when sharing internet connection, it's all about sequence when turning it on... Sequence in regard to what's turned on first, second etc... Here's the solution:
1. Turn everything off... modem, router...computers etc..
2. Turn on the wireless router FIRST and let it boot up.
3. Then turn on the modem and let it cycle up...
This allows your modem to lock onto the wifi router.
4. Turn everything else back on...
You should be good to go without drop outs...

If the power goes out, simply follow this sequence...
It's all about the sequence!!

Cannot get onto internet

disable the firewall on control panel.
check all the properties boxes on the network
connections and make sure firewall is disabled.

access the router setup and make sure that VCI is set to manual
and that you enter in the settings yourself (eg: 0,38 for aol broadband). Don't leave VCI, etc on auto, the router can't handle it.

D-Link router wont let me go onto the net with the wirless router

At the bottom right hand corner of your screen, you have a wireless connection icon. right click and view available wireless network...if you see your network there. connect to that network, if secured, then call d-link to verfiy what is your network key. if it is unsecure then you can log on right away.

if that wont allow you to connect then upgrade firmware of router.
