Windows Vista to a Wireless DI-624 problems

I have a Toshiba Sat. lap top with Windows Vista Home Premium That can see the router but can't connect to the internet and so far there is no firmware updates for the router and everything I have seen is because of the new versions of Internet protocols with Vista not be compatible with the router I have found some suggestions for work arounds but they haven't worked. Has anybody have any other work arounds?

    I am having the same problem. I can connect to my network but not the internet. I have tried several things I have found on the internet to no avail. All my other computers and laptops connect to the internet fine so I know it has something to do with Vista. I am not running Vista on anything except the laptop that will not connect.

    I have the same problem but have a possible fix.

    I have a Lenovo / IBM Thinkpad with VISTA. My router is a D-Link DI-624 and does not support VISTA wirelessly with the current firmware. However I can print via the CAT 5 cable through the router.
    Must be that different firmware routines are used for cable commands from the Lenovo Thinkpad than for decoding wireless transmissions to the router. I will check the D-Link site for a firmware download that will support VISTA on the DI-624.

    Apologies.

    D-Link's router, DI-624 must have the 108G FW. I must have incompatible settings with the router on the laptop.

    I have a Dell w/ Vista home, and it doesn't see the DI-624 either. Really not a fan of Vista!

    I have the same problem! Have the DI-624....just got a new Dell Inspiron 1545 with Vista. All my other XP Dells (all desktops) connect fine. The laptop sees the network...connects to the network....but not the Internet! Very annoying!!!

    I have a D-Link Di-624 router and a Dell XPS laptop that runs Vista. Whenever I try to connect the laptop to my network, it says that I have little to no connectivity and does not let me connect to the internet.
    Is there any way that I can get my laptop to connect or am I doing something wrong?

    It could be a wireless security problem. If your router has a wireless security enabled then its security mode and key needs to be configured on the laptop.



    What's the brand/model number of your router? Have you tried connecting the Toshiba Satellite laptop to a different wireless network? Have you already tested a different Vista laptop to connect to your wireless router?

I have a Toshiba Satellite connected to a Di-624m and I have the same problem.

One solution to many problems with D-Link is to ;

UNPLUG BOTH MODEM AND D-LINK.

WAIT 20 SECONDS (TWENTY SECONDS)

PLUG BACK IN AND TRY TO CONNECT.

DO NOT JUST SHUT THE POWER OFF, IT IS NOT THE SAME!

IF YOU DONT UNPLUG LONG ENOUGH IT WILL NOT WORK.

RECCOMENDATIONS:
CONNECT DIRECT WITH A LAN CABLE TO D-LINK

EVEN BETTER
CONNECT TO YOUR MODEM WITH A LAN OR USB-VERY FAST.

REPLACE THE D-LINK HUB! (LESS THAN A $100 !?!?!?)

WARNINGS-

OUR D-LINK ROUTER HAS CAUSED PROBLEMS FOR THE PAST YEAR ON OUR NETWORK, SOME OF THESE PROBLEMS WE BLAMED ON VISTA.

This wireless enviroment can corrupt downloads.
I went crazy trying to solve several download errors.
connecting direct to the hub with a lan cable solved the problem.

I have totally lost faith in this wireless system.
sorry D-link the di-264m is HISTORY soon.!

Unable to get PC to recognize wireless connection with DI-624


Which is it? PC cant connect or not able to setup wireless? If the router came with a setup CD, run that from your pc... Make sure you have a crossover Cat5(ethernet) cable connected between the router and a PC just to set it up initially... within the router can enable or disable wireless function... But to really narrow your device down, i need to know the hardware revision number... its on the same label as the MAC address on the outside of your router
