Do you have instructions for the router? They should be available from the D-link site. Connect the router to the computer with a network cable. Type cmd into your run box on the start menu then type ipconfig into the window that opens and note the IP address of the DHCP server, which should be in the form 192.168.x.1 and log into it by opening your browser and putting that no. into the address bar. This allows you to control the router and examine its settings. With the information you obtain it should be possible to connect the computer wirelessly, using the either windows wireless manager, which should be an icon near the clock, or the program that belongs to the wireless receiver.

If your computer came with the card preinstalled, you shouold be able to get drivers from your computer manufactures web site, under your specific computer model. Also, depending on the router, you may have to configure it the first time using an Ethernet cable, after that you can change to wireless.

Did you load the DLink software onto your computer?If so you have to configure the DLink control Panel to recognize the Internal wireless card in the computer.You may also need to take the wireless card out and restart your computer,then shut it back down and reinstall the card so the computer can recognize the card and reinstall the drivers.If it cant find suitable drivers it wont install.While you have the card out look at the brand and version number and try to download software to desktop to install in case windows cant find any.If you have a cat5 (ethernet) cable you can go hard wired till you get the wireless working.

First I would replace the connection cord to the computer that is not working. Try switching the cords to test them. The router may have a reset button. Turn the router off for at least three minutes, and try again.

Wireless connection set up


Are you trying to hook up the laptop wirelessly to the pc? because then the pc would need to have a wireless card as well....sounds like I need more info, but if you are trying to do what I think you are, you should just get a wireless router instead, hook the pc tower directly to it via ethernet cable, and then setup the laptop to connect to the router. The router would hook to your dsl or cable router....what service do you have?

On which port of the D-link router did you plug the WRT160N router?

Do this setup.

Disconnect the WRT160N from D-link.

Connect a computer to port 1 of the WRT160N. Access the setup page by typing 192.168.1.1 on the address bar. you may need to type in the username and password for WRT160N. on the setup page Change the LAN IP address from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.2.1. save the settings.

Connect a cable from port 1,2,3 or 4 of the D-link router to the Internet port of the WRT160N. turn off everything then turn them on starting from cable modem>D-link >WRT160N then computer.

You should be able to access the internet.

How to install a linksys router to my desk top for my wireless laptop


1. plug in the router
2. connect the router to your DSL or Cable Modem using the supplied ethernet cable
3. connect the router to your computers ehternet port with a second piece of ethernet cable


you can use catagory 5 ethernet cable , or catagory 6

Most linksys routers have 4 to 5 ethernet ports to connect computers to.

One of the ports will be marked as the one to connect to your DSL or Cable Modem

Usually when looking at the back of the router the WAN port will be located to the far left.

Hi I live in Australia and have brought D-link dir-300 Wireless G router 1st off I have on screen D-link Quick router setup Quick router set has discovered that you are already connected to a router...


Dlink routers are fairly easy to set up most of the time, I've used several of them over the years. What the heck is this tower you keep speaking of? Is it a second computer or is it THE computer for your desktop monitor. Your explanation leaves a lot to be desired. I've never seen a commercial router that stands up like a tower computer and if you have one, it is probably a pretty expensive unit, so we must clarify and completely understand what you are talking about. You indicate that removing power and cables from the tower would disable your monitor and that makes it sound like the tower IS your computer. Does that make sense to you, it does to me.

Hi sheena -Is your desk top hooked up throgh the router? If not, plug your modem into the wan port on the router. The router should have come with a couple of short cables, most likely blue and yellow. Use the blue to connect your modem to your router. You can check the manual just to be sure. Use the ethernet cable that had been connecting your desk top to your modem, and plug into one of the wired ports on the router. I imagine you'll be using wireless for your laptop. Make sure that it is on. Put the cd in your desk top and run from there. Follow the directions. If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be glad to assist you further. If this solves your probleb PLEASE rate this as fixed. Remember. Need help? Just holler Sheena.

D-link router DI524 using next G external wireless modem


You can purchase a usb wireless dongle and attach to the PC. From then onwards you can set up a wireless network without connecting the usb cable for the router. The dongle will enable wireless capabilities on the pc. The only thing left is to have all devices running in the same workgroup.
