Question about PC Desktops
My desk top computer has wireless built in i also have dlink wireless router. I dont think any book came with computer.Trying to set up without wires any idea what i have to do,not up with all the jargon of comps.
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.
