Can't get it setup to work without being plugged in to my laptop

My laptop is a Toshiba Satelitte M60 with Windows XP home. Perhaps I need help setting up a wireless connection? Bev

If you have Windows XP and there's is no extra security set up on the router then connecting is easy.

In the bottom-right corner you'll see a small icon that looks like a computer. The screen is likely blue on it. Additionally there are two faint crescents near the top of the icon. That's the Wireless Zero-Configuration tool. If you double click on that icon a window will pop up showing the names of nearby connections, their signal strength, and whether or not security is enabled. By default the name of the DI-524 is "default." If it is not secured, click on on and then click the connect button. Windows may then ask if you want to connect to the unsecured network. Click on Connect Anyway and the configuration tool will connect you to the router.

Check the main computer you set up the network router with...you may need to go to the network status and tasks in control panel...click on this...then you will see a map of all the network devices connected...find the belkin router and click on it...in this window there should be a tab called wireless properties..click this...the wireless properties first page should have the wireless SSID name listed here...and if you click the security tab then the security type and network key are displayed here..You need to write down the SSID, security type, and network key and make sdure the toshiba laptop setting for the wireless network are exactly the same. There may be a link on the first page of the wireless securities saying copy to usb drive..you can use this to copy all network settings to and then transfer these settings in to the toshiba by using the network setup wizard.

How to save the d-link installation and re-load windows xp


within the web based setup of the router is an option to save a backup of your current settings. (while it is working) save the file (it needs to be saved to a flash drive or external hdd as it will be lost if you put it in a folder and reload your system again) you then enter the web based router setup and restore the router with this file from the flash or external hdd........however, I know of no way to keep your network settings on the actual PC or laptop unless you are only doing a repair and not a full format when you reinstal windows you must enter the info during setup or if wireless you must go to network connections and set the properties on the wireless connection by using the advanced settings such as type of security, etc.........if not unplugged the router should retain its settings.

Wireless Router Causes XP PRO to Crash. I just purchase a Linksys WRT110 wireless router and installed it using the EasyLink setup cd. The install went OK but Windows XP PRO immediately crashed and...


Have you unisntalled all the Linksys sofftware through add/remove software. I had a similar problem with an IOGEAR Bluetooth transceiver, I did the setup from the CD, my laptop (Dell C640) blue screened each time. I uninstalled all the IOGEAR software and my laptop stopped blue screening. I never installed the software for a wireless router, I always use the WEB interface and my life is my simplier.

VPN Using XP Servers and D-Link WBR-2310


I had exactly the same problem. The solution is to set up pptp as a virtual server pointing to the lan ip of the server. Port forwarding only forwards the port but not the GRE protocol (pptp passthrough)

Home portal not yet activated


Hi,

XP is an very good OS which will connect with 2wire without any problem.

If your computer is not able to detect modem, pls follow these steps.

* Check for damage of ethernet cable
* Try to reset the modem by using a paper clip punching into the reset button
* Even if your modem is not detected, force the IP and Default gateway

Take care
