Can you access the network using cable? Check the security setting of your router. Check the WPA-PSK key and use it as the password to access the network

Did you enter the security key (password)? It may be your laptop? Try resetting the D-Link to default settings and connecting to the laptop. They reconfigure the SSID and Security Key. Write down the info for future use. Here's a user Manual: http://www.dlink.com/uk/en/home-solutions/connect/routers/dir-600-wireless-n-150-home-router

Trying to connect wirelessly to 2 wire. I get limited access icon


Hi groveland1,

I see that you are having issue with your Internet Connection, Limited or no connectivity is a possible issue with your network key / security key on the router and your laptop.

1. Try and check the network key in your router.

2. Check your network settings in the Laptop and see if the security settings in your Laptop is the same as the security/network key in your Router.

3. If possible recreate your wireless connection in windows for a fresh connection from your Laptop to your Router.

4. Change your Network Key in the Router and in your Laptop see if it will connect in-case you may have forgotten you old Network Key.

Hope this helps.

Need a network key


Since you want to access the router setup page and get the wireelss security for your laptop you can try this:
Open a web browser like internet explorer or Netscape. Enter the ip address of your router in the address bar of your browser. In the picture above the address bar has http://www.google.com in it. Just replace all of that with the ip address of your router. By default the ip address should be set to 192.168.1.1.
You should see a box prompting you for your username and password. Enter your username and password now. By default the username is blank, and the password is admin. Click the Ok button to log in to your router.
When you're already on the setup page of the router youc an go to Wireless tab and click on Wireless security and there you can find the security key that you need....

If the default password didn't work you need to reset the router by pressing the reset button for 15 seconds so it will be back to its default settings with default password which is admin.

But if you successfully log in to the router page just go to the Wireless tab and there you can find all the wireless settings of your router including the wireless security key...
