Question about D-Link DI 514 Wireless Router (DI-514)

1 Answer

New Laptop Will Not Connect

I hope that this is indeed a "wireless router problem" that I am experiencing! My internet service provider is Cox Highspeed
Internet and I recently upgraded my laptop to a Dell XPS M1330 that had Windows Vista factory installed. I have a DLink DI 514 wireless router.
Prior to using this new computer, I had a Dell Latitude lap top with Windows XP.

Here is the problem .... with my old Dell Latitude, I was able to connect
anywhere in my home to the Internet in a very quick and always reliable manner. It did not matter if I was upstairs (the router is downstairs), on the sun porch (about the fartherest point from the router downstairs in my home) or even outside in my yard.

However, since using my new laptop, I am almost always unable to get the the Internet unless I am sitting immediately in front of the router. I always get a message that I am connected and that I have a signal of "excellent" strength, but it either takes forever to bring up an Internet page or I get a message that says that it is unable to connect to the Internet. I never ever had this problem with my old 3-year old computer.

I have been reading about the new N-series wireless routers and am wondering if that is what I need. I am willing to purchase one of these routers, but will be very disappointed if it does not solve the problem.

Any help and advice that you can give would be most appreciated!

I have a fujitsu amil pro v 2055 does it have built in wireless or do i need to use a modem


This laptop does have a built-in wireless.
To connect to the Internet you need a wireless router and connect this wireless router to a cable or DSL modem.

If you use a wireless router with a DSL or Cable Internet service then your laptop with a wireless card can then connect to the Internet. You can also connect to a free WiFi hot spots like McDonalds, Star Bucks, the Airport etc. using the wireless card in your laptop.
If you use the wireless 3G wireless broadband service, then you can access the Internet anywhere where your ISP has 3G wireless coverage. You need to check the service coverage area where you need Internet service.
Once you decide what type of broadband your require, then you need to check with the various Internet Service providers to see if they can offer and the cost of the various plans.
Note the download limits and the associated additional costs if you exceed the monthly download limits. Once you sign up with a Internet Service provider, their documentation will include setting up instructions and/or installation CD. http://www.fixya.com/support/r6165994-setting_up_broadband_connection

Dear Sir, There is no provision of fixing my laptop to a wireless router.Can anybody advise how to convert this "laptop" to enable getting wireless connection of internet?


To connect to the Internet you need a few extra things aswell as a network or wireless card and install the LAN or wireless driver.
1. You need to sign up with an Internet service provider.
2. Connect a LAN cable from your computer to the DSL or cable modem
3. You need a DSL or cable modem and connect and configure the modem to inaccordance with your Internet service provider's instructions.
4. Install Internet Explorer if it has not been done.
5. If everything has been done correctly, when you open Internet Explorer youcan access the Internet. If you have a wireless router and it is connected to the DSLor cable modem then -
To connect to yourwireless router, the router needs its wireless settings to be configuredwith the SSID, encryption key etc., also the wireless cards in all thelaptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings.Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

I am on Cox cable. I lost my connection to the internet several times this evening. Cox checked out my modem and said the problem was in the router. When I connect modem to computer, internet pops up...


Cox people are really correct that everything is working from them and from there modem and doing a firmware update is really a good thing to do to correct your problem. For that firmware update you just need to download it from your routers manufacturer like Linksys , Belkin , Dlink or Netgear just go to there web site and search the model of your router so you can download the latest firmware for it.

Cox is robbers :-)

I pay the $40 to Vz and $35 to Time Worthless (tm).

You can do it, but I don't think you'll like it. You need the 175 modem and Vz caps the service. The key is a new Netgear product http://www.google.com/products?q=netgear+mbr624gu-100nas&rls=com.microsoft:*&oe=UTF-8&um=1&ie=UTF-8&ei=FC5RSsT1JJqltgeo-vTWAQ&sa=X&oi=product_result_group&ct=title&resnum=4

Best advice, call Cox and threaten to leave if they don't give you a "deal." We worked out TWC bill to $157 for the "triple play" and 2 movie channel services and 2 DVR's that I went out and got a TiVO 500 G HD for $65 at Bust Buy to increase the storage to a gazillion hours.

Cant connect my router to my new internet


Did the old internet come with the router? It may have static settings in it. If so, you will need to configure it with the new static settings, or at least put it on DHCP.

Wireless router says its working laptop says no its not


Your sister was accessing the wireless access point at school which is connected to the Internet/WEB access via a router and the school's broadband service provider.
For you to access the Internet using your wireless adapter on your laptop, you need your own wireless access point and connect it to a broadband ADSL or cable modem and then connect it to an Internet Service Provider. Some Internet Service Providers (cable and ADSL) can supply a combined modem/router/wireless Access point.
If you already have a broadband modem all you need is a wireless access point/router. You only need to configure the wireless access point and your wireless adapter so they will communicate with each other. Folow the instructions in the manuals.

Two Questions Connecting with Belkin Wireless Router...


To answer the first question, please provide what kind of operating system you are using, and please provide the exact error message. Its probably just a caution/nag that you don't really have to worry about, but if you provide more information then so can we.
For the second question, you will need to setup the WEP on the laptop to get the laptop to connect to the router via wireless, regardless if it was used to setup the router, the wireless network is encrypted so it will need to be accessed by a computer(s) that have the key programmed into them. You can plug in the laptop into the hardwire Ethernet port for configuration, that is another option.
