If you can connect to the internet using the Ethernet cable on your laptop then the cable modem is configured correctly.
If you want to connect to the Internet using the D-Link wireless router then first you need to configure the D-Link wireless settings and then configure the wireless card in your laptop with the D-Link's wireless settings. Remove the Ethernet from the laptop and connect it to the WAN/Internet port on the D-Link wireless router.

Hi hdixon530,

Your motherboard should have an ethernet port ready to go so you shouldn't need a network card (see atached picture)

The only thing you need to get internet acess is for them to come to your house, install the router and the internet line and then configure your pc for it's use.

Check the cable by trying another one if you have not already done so. Before you buy a new ethernet card try downloading the driver for the ethernet card you now have and see if that solves the problem. Go to http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=&SystemID=DIM_P4_4600 If not then any Ethernet 10/100 PCI card should work fine in your Dell.

WIFI not working with Linksys wireless-g broadband router/Comcast


Unplugging the wireless router and connecting it again should not have altered the wireless connection/configuration. You have connected the cables correctly because the Internet works when you connect a LAN cable to the router.
The Linksys wireless configuration or the wireless card configuration in the computer was changed it to lose the wireless connection. The wireless card configuration needs to be changed to match the wireless router's settings or change the Linksys with new configuration settings and configure the wireless card accordingly.
To secure your router with a login password and wireless security, please follow my instructions - click on this link :-

Cannot get the ethernet to work


The "cable unplugged" error points to an electromechanical problem. Something is broken.

The first thing to try would be to replace the ethernet cable (make sure it is wired straight through, since some hardware won't automatically configure for a crossover cable). If that doesn't work, test that the hub you are connecting to works by hooking it up at a friend's house. If the hub and cable are alright, it's possible that the jack on your network card is faulty.

Xbox live on this laptop


I assume you have a crossover ethernet cable.
put the my network places on your desktop.
right click on desktop/properties/desktop/customize desktop/tic
then on the network places icon on desktop right click/properties
right click on wireless and bridge devices
they are now sharing the same ip
be sure and remove /delete bridge when not sharing as the ip will stick forever likely.
that should do it if you need more info /open my computer and hit help and search for internet connection sharing as the firewall may need to be configured.
