    It apparently assigns a random one. Each time I've tried to connect with that wizard, the key is different.

Disable WPS in the router and setup wpa keys (passphrase by hand much easier and you don't have to setup every single computer yet again when you want to add another one)

Did you enter the security key (password)? It may be your laptop? Try resetting the D-Link to default settings and connecting to the laptop. They reconfigure the SSID and Security Key. Write down the info for future use. Here's a user Manual: http://www.dlink.com/uk/en/home-solutions/connect/routers/dir-600-wireless-n-150-home-router

DELL E6400 Connect to wireless Modem problem


I have the EXACT same problem on the same computer.
I'm not an expert so I searched online but didn't really find a lot of responses to this Dell issue. One suggestion was to turn off Intel PROset and let Windows manage the wireless connection.
That worked for me.
When in the Intel PROset menu, click on Advanced, then click on "Let windows manage your wireless set-up."
Alternatively, you can toggle between the two software by pressing F10.
This solution worked for me.

I have an inspiron E1505 and i am trying to connect to my network to get rid of viruses. I am trying to connect using Intel ProSet/Wireless, but I am still not able to connect. Any suggestions?


Hi
Need to know when you try to search the network in the intel proset , does it find the network name or not . ie. does it see your wireless connection.

Alternatively you can use the following link for troubleshooting

Ip Address 169.x.x.x Wireless Internet Connection Problems 6400/E1505 Dell Laptop


questions to ask yourself:
- I the wifi card connecting to the routers wifi network? or your next door neighbors?
- did it connect with the correct WEP? withouot the right WEP it will not communicatwith the WAP
- is the router set to be the DHCP server? this function is normally defaulted to ON

some times though windows simply has to have its TCP stack reset after having been connected to too many different networks, especially if you are a heavy wifi user.

open a command prompt: I see you already know how.

Type this command line

netsh int ip reset <anyfilenameyoulike>.txt
the txt file will be a log file tha will be placed on your main (c:) drive after the NETSH command has run

next lets reset winsock since we are here in the command line anyhow

netsh winsock reset

if everything goes right you'll be prompted to reboot you machine.

hopefully this will solve your inability to aquire an IP address from the router.

I would first try and reinstall the driver from there web site. I linked it HERE for you. There is also a key that will disable the wireless card inside the laptop. It's Fn+F2 I believe.
