There are number of reasons, but lets try something 1st
Assuming your computer is fit, try a WIRED connection. If that works, we know your base set is configured properly to receive the internet.
If it does not work wired, then we need to find out why (another topic, specify wired)
Things to look at for wireless:
The settings on your PC for the wireless adapter:
Go to settings (network) rightclick on properties and bring up the network device properties.
Go to the advanced tab and check the configuration of:
MTU (Maximum Transfer Units) is set to auto or to the same as your router
Channel, make sure your PC is on the same channel as your wireless is broadcasting from.
Workgroup, insure that your workgroup is the same for all computers in your network (for file sharing)
Make sure you have an antenna to receive wireless on your desktop.

The are the common things.

good luck and don't forget to vote!!!

Cannot connect via wireless to dlink 655. wired connection works fine. when i disconnect to go wireless the laptop sees the dlink but there is no internet connection. running Vista Home Premium. static...


You must manually configure the wireless settings. Go to Network and Sharing Center > Manage Wireless Networks. Remove all the listed network there. Then click Add > Add Network in Range > Select your signal > Type the security if you have and press connect. That should do it.

Can not connect to internet


My first guess is that your Dlink ADSL modem is really a modem router, so you are getting double routing. Sometimes this works just fine, though, so I'm not confident that's the whole explanation.
You'll need to setup your IP plan carefully
set the D-Link modem(router?) to bridging mode & the DLink wireless router does the login to Exetel.
DLink wireless router WAN side: DHCP + login to Exetel
DLink wireless router LAN side: 192.168.0.1
Subnet 255.255.255.0
DHCP on: range 192.168.0.10 to .20
DNS Servers: 220.233.0.3, 220.233.0.4
with PC's wireless adaptor set to DHCP
so picks up eg:
IP address: 192.168.0.10
Gateway address: 192.168.0.1
DNS Servers: 220.233.0.3, 220.233.0.4

I just connected my Dlink 655 to my laptop using the setup CD; I then turned on another laptop in the house and was able to connect to the wireless, so the installation appears to be okay; the problem is...


First, you need to make sure the wireless WEP settings on the D-Link router match the settings of your laptop wireless cards. Very important. You might see your network but that doesn't mean you have internet access. Also, the modem from your Internet provider needs to be set properly for the router to connect, DSL or Cable? Both use different settings on the router. Good Luck.

There is an Excellent signal but it's not connecting


That´s because of the ip assignment you have to set the ip of the router in the same net work ip scale of you modem that connects you to your isp example if ip modem is 192.168.0.10 then the ip you must set on the wan port mustbe 192.168.0.100, also check that you are connecting the out of the modem to the wanport on the wireless router.

Hope it helps

Cannot connect to DLink DIR-655


The part below is all you need to look at, the rest is Ethernet which is your wired connection, ethernet card.

Here is what are causing your problems from what you gave me and basically your computer is not communicating with the router:

1)I don't see any IP address for your laptop so you can't get on the internet if you don't have an IP address, also, I don't see any gateway address. The gateway address is your router address, and that address is given to the router automatically from your Internet Service Provider.

So if your computer cannot see the gateway address then the gateway address (router) cannot give you an IP address to get on the Internet.
Your Wireless card looks ok, that is the physical address and if you were able to do the loopback then its working.

So on your laptop I would begin from the beginning. Go into network connections and delete the DLink connection if it is there. Then Start>control panel>Network connections>click wireless network connection>click change settings of the connection on the left window>click wireless network tab>make sure checkmark"use windows to configure my wireless network settings>click add a new network>TYPE IN THE SSID FOR THE NETWORK>ENTER WEP/WPA KEY>CLICK OK, then close and you should be connected.

You said other computers are able to access the internet thru the DLINK so it all points to your laptop not being configured correctly.

HOWEVER :)...I see alot of "Media disconnected in your list. Make sure all of the lights are working on the front of the router, if not check the cabling or call the ISP sometimes the problem is on their end. Hope this helps, keep me updated.

Wireless network has disappeared !


Hi,

If I understand your post/description:
1. You have both wired and wireless clients tied to the DLink DI-634M router;
2. The 1st PC is a desktop that uses Ethernet connections to the DLink and is currently working;
3. You have another (2nd) PC (a laptop?) that is connect by WiFi to the router. This is not working now;

I think that your issue may have to do with the Wireless networking of your 2nd PC, i.e. if you can access 192.168.0.1 (DLink DI-634M) from the 1st PC that is wired.

Should this be the case or the scenario is different, pls post back.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested or should you be in need of additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
