SOURCE: D-link dir-625 still cant acces wirelessly

If your laptop has a wireless capability you should be able to connect to the wireless network of your router, just view the available wireless network select the wireless name of your router and connected to it if it already say connected try to disconnect the ethernet cable from your laptop and access the internet wirelessly..........

SOURCE: Connecting Laptop wireless and Desktop wired to the router

Do you need to see the desktop or just share folders from each other? If the latter then you need to do the following:

Use Windows Explorer and select a folder you want to share. Right click and select sharing and security.

On the sharing tab click on Share this folder. Enter a share name ( I like to enter the PC name _folder name; Rick1_Downloads)

Click on Permissions. If your ok with everyone using the PC's and Laptops having access then highlight Everyone and click on Full Control.

Do this on each PC and Laptop.

That should be it or darned near close.

SOURCE: Hi I cant configure my router D-link DIR-300

This definitely worked for me. To find out your computer's MAC address, just go to start, then click run, then type 'CMD'. When prompted, type 'ipconfig/all'. Find your ethernet adapter local area network connection, and underneath you will find a lablel titled Physical Address. This is your MAC address and should consist of 6 pairs of number/letter combinations. Then connect your computer to the modem, eithe wirelessly or directly and point your browser to 192.168.0.1. Under Setup click Internet Setup and then click Manual Internet Connection Setup. Under Internet Connection Type, select Dynamic IP (DHCP), then under MAC address, type in the MAC address of your computer. Click Save Settings and Presto! It worked for me.

Cannot connect ipod touch to d-link dir 855 router


The fastest way to connect is by using the WPA button on the router i've even used it to connect a dsi and 3ds,cannon printer etc. If you go into settings i'm sure there a connect using WPA and then use push button and push the button on the dir -855-right side of the router in the middle-it pushes in but can almost be hidden.
