The router has to be manually configured in the gui page within it to allow remote wireless access point. This is not done by default as a security feture on routers. The way to find out the ip address of the router to set up a wireless access point or remote configuration is to go on your machine that has active working internet and click start, all programs, accessories, right click comand prompt, select run as administrator, confirm, then once in comand prompt admin, typ in ipconfig /all, then look for default gateway in the first list shown this is the ip of your router. Hope this helps.
IF you want to get the WEP key for the wireless for the new laptop, you need to access the computer that is currently connected to it. then you need to co go command prompt by click on start > type in the start search box > cmd > then command prompt will come up > now you need to type 'ipconfig' and you need to get the numbers for default gateway.
Next is you need to open Internet Explorer, then type in the default gateway on the address box. And you will be shown the interface of the router. Just look for the Wireless settings then security and you should be able to get the WEP key you're looking for.

RESET to DEFAULT IP Address, Password = Set router POWER ON. - Reset router: With a straightened paperclip, press RESET button 15secs. - Wait 60 secs. -- PC Command Line: - Click [Start] - Click [Run...] - enter: cmd, Click [OK] - At the prompt (c:\.....>) enter: ipconfig /release, press [ENTER] - At the prompt (c:\.....>) enter: ipconfig /renew, press [ENTER] - TEST: Open Web Browser: Connect to http://192.168.1.245 - Username: [blank] or admin - Password: admin
What kind of router do you have? Generally you can connect to the router through a web interface. You can find the IP address of the router using the steps below (assuming that you're running Windows)..
1) Click Start 2) Click Run 3) Type in 'cmd' 4) Click OK 5) In the command prompt window type in 'ipconfig' 6) Hit Enter
You will then see the default gateway. Open your web browser and go to http://the.default.gateway.address (replacing the.default.gateway.address with the IP address shown from the ipconfig command). You should then be prompted for a username and password. Most routers by default have a username of 'admin' and a password of 'admin'. If your able to login with that you should have a wireless option or wireless security option where you can go to retrieve the key or at least change it.
This issue is possibly due to a configuration problem 1.Log into router 2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off) 3.Note router name you are connecting to. 4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses. 5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address. 6.Note router name you are connecting to. 7. Move the laptop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet. This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.
Here is the link for the DIR-330 your model number did not list: http://www.dlink.com/products/?pid=564
1.check your wireless setup and see if the wireless is on. 2. Do ipconfig / all at the DOS prompt on the laptop 3. Test the router by setting up the laptop by MAC address. 4. Go into security settings ( router) an create key( WEP/WPA )etc. Don't do this step until it all work properly.
ok , you need to set up a WEP key
so only u fam. can connect dont want pirates
ok go to ur command prompt and type in (ipconfig)
vista command prompt is on (all programs | accessories | then command prompt )
in xp go to ur start then RUN menu type (cmd) and run
should pop a black screen
type in (ipconfig) and hit enter
get the default gateway no.
enter that on ur address bar and go in ur router
go to ur wireless settings and make a WEP code
****if any pc in home is connected to wireless might be prompted for key code type the wep code u made and that should be it
the wep key is something that was created by whoever set up your router. the network information can be found several ways
first way is to click start then run on pc type cmd. in the new window type ipconfig.. the default gateway will be shown as ip address.. type that ip address in explorer. it will be something like 126.96.36.199 the router will show its information on the page that opens but not the wep key. if you cant get the wep key you already have then reset your router with the button on the back of it and then follow the instruction above.. be sure to make a new wep key, do not leave you network unprotected..

1. access 1st the router's setup page
* open up a browser
* http://192.168.1.1 or http://www.routerlogin.com/
2. go to wireless settings under setup
if you have a wireless phone at home change the channel of the router, make sure they dont have same channel
3. change the mode of the router to w/c your laptop's wireless adapter support (eg. b only, g only )
4. try to change security option wpa instead of wep (make sure your laptop's adapter support it)
5. change SSID (note: if you've change the SSID
of the router, remove the profile on your computer under preferred networks
6. change your passphrase
7. Disable Advanced 108Mbps Features
8. Disable Setup Access List (it can be found in wireless settings under advance)
9. upgrade firmware of the router
* before upgrading make sure you backup the settings (go to backup under maintenance)
* if latest firmware is installed
* flush firmware (flushing it is just reinstalling even if the latest firmware is installed)
10. power cycle frequently (turn off for 10 seconds then turn it on again)
11. If all of these didnt work call your laptop manufacturer for help
12. call gearhead -> 1-888-615-3488
13. or call our technical support 1-888-netgear
lucky if you got me
