Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router
I have replaced my drive on my Sony Vaio computer due to a disk crash and now when I access available wireless networks I get every network in the area but my own DI 524. The other computer I am using now is accessing it just fine. Why is this?
Your router is probably configured not to broadcast your SSID (the name of your wlan)? You should be able to enable it by logging on to the router from the computer that is still connected.

Sony's Sony Vaio laptop features built-in wireless LAN adapter that allows the computer to connect to any wireless access point.
If you want to adjust the device's WiFi settings, you must use the proprietary software and hardware that comes preinstalled on the laptop and the Internet connection options that come with Windows.
Once you have all of the correct settings enabled, you can have your laptop connected to a wireless access point without any additional applications.
Enabling Wi-Fi with Wireless LAN Switch
Before you can connect to a wireless network or change any of your Wi-Fi settings, you must first enable the computer's Wi-Fi feature with the wireless LAN switch.
This switch is located directly below the laptop's screen and is labeled "Wireless." Once you have located the switch, slide it into the "ON" position.
Enable Wi-Fi in Vaio Smart Network
Once Wi-Fi has been enabled with the wireless LAN switch, you must enable Wi-Fi using the laptop's proprietary wireless connection software, "Vaio Smart Network."
To access this program, click the "Start" button in the computer's task bar and select the "All Programs" option.
Select the "VAIO Smart Network" option to launch the program.
Alternatively, you can click the VAIO Smart Network icon in the computer's task bar to launch the program.
This icon is in the shape of a green button with two white arrows on it.
Once in the application, click the switch to the right of the "Wi-Fi" heading to toggle it to the "ON" position.
Windows Connect to a Network
With Wi-Fi enabled, you must connect to the wireless network using the
"Connect to a Network" feature that is a part of the Windows operating system.
Click the network icon in the computer's task bar to bring up a list of the available wireless networks.
This icon is in the shape of a computer and an Ethernet cable if you not connected to a network.
If you are connected to a network, it is in the shape of signal bars.
Select the desired wireless network from the menu that appears and select the "Connect" option.
Enter the networks password if necessary and connect to the network.
Network and Sharing Center
If the wireless network that you want to connect to does not appear in the "Connect to a Network" window, you must connect to the network manually.
Click the network icon in the computer's task bar and select the "Open Network and Sharing Center" option.
Click the "Manage wireless networks" option, followed by the "Add" option.
Click the "Manually create a network profile" option and type the network's information in the spaces provided.
Place a checkmark next to the "Start this connection automatically" option and click the "Next" button to connect to the network.
Hope this helps
