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!

SETTING UP A BROADBAND CONNECTION
First you need to decide what type of broadband and Internet service you require and these are -
1. DSL that uses your existing telephone line.
2. Cable that uses a cable service and can include a cable TV service.
3. A wireless 3G network uses the mobile/cell phone network and can be separate or combine with your cell phone account. This type of Internet connection uses an USB wireless device shaped like an USB memory stick.
Note - Combined services generally offer discount pricing and may include a modem/wireless router.

If you use a wireless router with the 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.

That means that your router is functioning properly on your network, communicating with other devices, but your ISP (Internet service provider) connection is malfunctioning, out of service, or otherwise experiencing a problem. Your router can't connect to the Internet because of a problem somewhere between the router and your ISP, or your ISP and the Internet.

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.

First steps (forgive me if you are already doing this). Hook up the laptop with cat5 network cable to port on router to verify you have internet connectvity. Verify router settings that DHCP is on or off. It should be on unless u are using static IP's on network. Go back wireless and see if you can connect. IF yo do, open a DOS prompt and use ping command (c:>ping 192.168.x.x ) where x.x are the ip setting of router. In most cases the router IP will be set to 192.168.1.1 Check the most basic settings. Sometimes it is a simple thing that is throwing everything off. Also consider if your laptop is at the very edge of your signal area. Try moving laptop right next to router.

Hope this helps.

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.
