Question about Computers & Internet

3 Answers

I have a D-Link router which handles both wireless and wired connections to different computers. One of the computers always shows an icon in the lower right that says "Internet Gateway:unconfigured" how do I configure the gateway? And is it necessary as the computer seems to work all right now?

    Thanks Steve, I think I will just leave things alone as it seems to be working OK the way it is. The computer that was showing "internet gateway:unconfigured" was the only one that uses a wired connection to the router.
    But like I said I will not mess with it as it works, and thanks again for your help.

    I accept your solution of doing nothing as the router and computer both are working all right.

    Thanks Steve.

    The computer that has the icon is hooked up to the network via a wired connection, running on Win98. All of my other computers are running on XP and they are connected wirelessly.
    Thanks for your help.

Hello, Mike.

As you had noted, the computer in question is Win98-based, so that may account for the message.

I agree with Steve. Just leave it alone.

And, please credit him with the solution.

Is the computer that has this icon hooked up through wired or wireless? Also what operating system is the computer running? Here is a KB article concerning that problem as well:

Hi the gateway is the router itself, is it wired or wireless to this system? as if it is wired, it would work as normal, as it does not need to connect via the wireless security to use the gateway of the router, but if it is wireless you can use an assigned ip address to that PC, by double clicking the wireless connection icon, then going to properties,scroll down to tcp/ip, then properties, then assign an ip address for the system itself, the subnet is always 255:255:255:0, then the router ip = (default gateway) then just put the routers ip in there..something like....192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 ( depending on the router model) then OK it at then end, and it should not say that any more, but if you do not want to go through all that just to get rid of a message, i would leave well alone, as they say, if its not broken , don't fix it....hope this helps, please vote and rate thanks

Wireless Internet is not showing on the computer.


First power off the D-Link for 15 secs, reconnect the power and then reboot your computer. If your computer cannot connect to the D-Link and the Internet then -
I suggest you reset the D-Link back to the defaults and configure it again.

Press and hold the RESET button at the back of the routerwith the power ON until the LEDs flash at the time the release the RESETbutton.
Connect a LAN cable from the D-Link to your laptop/computer's LAN port, openthe browser on your laptop/computer and enter the D-Link's configuration URL..
http://192.168.0.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = blank (just press Enter) You can now change the default password.
You can now configure the wireless settings. Now configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop withthe router's wireless settings.

How do I ad another computer to my router


Since you are adding one, it means you do have a computer that is already working with this router. It means you router is been configured already. So if you need to add another one, its very simple.

For wired connection:
-just get an Ethernet cable long enough to reach your computer then connect the ends on the available Ethernet port located on the back of the router and the other end should be connected on the Ethernet port on your computer.

For wireless connection:
Look for a wireless icon on the bottom part of your screen near the clock. For Windows Vista and Windows 7 just click it and will show you the wireless networks that are available. For Windows XP, right click the icon and select "View available wirleess networks". As soon as you see the list of wireless networks, select yours and click "Connect". If your network is secure type the security key that been setup on the wireless router, if not secured it should connect immediately.

I have di-524 d-link wireless router, my router not giving me wireless connections


If you connect the computer to the router with the cable , does it work?
If yes then the wired connection is working.

What is the Operating system on the laptop or the wireless computer ?

If it is XP then in the bottom right hand corner you will find Wireless network connection ( looks like 1 computer monitor). Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is windows Vista, then in the bottom right hand corner you will find 2 computer monitor icon. Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is Windows 98/ME/2000 then use the adapter utility to connect to the wireless network.
For MAC you will see the AIRPORT icon at the top.

Check the wireless settings of the router first . Make sure that you have all the wireless settings of the router. If you are not sure about the settings, then open the router set up and check the settings.

Belkin N1 wireless router drops offline


The connectivity issue with your Belkin router could be due to a couple of different items. Your ISP might even be able to shed a little light on the subject.

I would also go to Belkin's website, and go to the support area by clicking on Support Center in the left pane of the sight. You can then search for your product number. With the results that you receive, you will be able to see what version of firmware they have, which is like doing a software upgrade on your computer. There should also be a step by step process on the website for you to install the firmware. I would do it from a desktop that is connected physically to the router.

Please let me know if you would like further assistance with this matter. Thank you.

Cannot connect to my network


If it happens to be a Dell, I think they have a specific configuration or something that has to be changed. For that I'm pretty sure you have to contact Dell, or look on their website.
The way that some routers are set up you have to have a certain pass phrase to access the wireless connection. And make sure, by opening the wireless network monitor, the icon should be in the lower right hand corner by the clock. That you are connecting to the correct user account on the router. Some router configurations require a different user account for each wireless device connecting to it. Or the computer trying to connect you may have to manually select from that menu in the wireless network monitor..

Network Cable Unplugged


This is odd as the connection icon with the cross on it refers to a wired connection and not wireless. Right click the icon then select dissable. Go to your wireless card in network connections and right click then connect. Also go into your routers properties and see if it is allocating your wireless card an IP address, this should show along side your other PC's allocated IP addreses.
