Question about D-Link DI-514 / DWL-520 Kit (di-514/dwl-520-k)

1 Answer

Laptop networked to desktop with DSL

Is there a way that I can access the internet from my laptop (came with wireless) to my desktop (with DI-514/DWL-520 wireless router and card) with DSL? When I try IE from the laptop, it gives me a connection problem. If I run diagnostics on it it gives me a choice of wireless or ethernet connection. Since both are used to access the internet, I chose to run both and have a lovely printout which probably tells somebody something.

I am also having problems saving and accessing files from one to the other. The two are talking to each other, but when I go to save I get a message saying "make sure disc is not full or write protected and that file is not in use." I suspect there is some sharing setting that I need to tweak.

Any help gratefully accepted.

    Here are a couple of tips. Post here read here. Start a new topic instead of tacking onto a 10-month old thread.



    The product you need is a WIRELESS ROUTER. You can pick one up for about $40. It plugs into the DSL and sets up a private network between your desktop, laptop, printer, or whatever else you have.

You need to make sure first that your laptop is connected to your wireless router's network because that the only way you can use internet access and access file on your laptop using the router.

Check your wiring:

Cable-modem (or DSL-modem) <---> WAN-port on Router

LAN-port on router <--> network-port on your desktop computer

Follow the instructions that came with the router,
to access the built-in web-server "inside" the router.
Run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard" to configure your wireless network.

Now, try to access your newly-defined network from your laptop.

Wireless Home network will not stay connected to internet


So you have a DSL modem connected to a router connected to a wireless router connected to both your computers? Sounds like you need to just get a wireless modem and throw all the routers away.

Having your laptop sitting next to your desktop will not let your laptop connect to the DSL link.

You need what's called a Wireless Router. (assuming your laptop has a wireless adapter, if not you'll need a network cable for that.

1. Go to the store, buy a wireless router
2. install router in between your DSL modem and the computer.
3. Plug the WAN port into the DSL modem (cable is usually included with the router)
4. Plug the desktop into the back of one of the ports of the wireless router
5. Run the setup disk
6. For manual configuration of the router you can usually go to: 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1 depending on the brand)
7. If you don't know anything about networking, let the install disk do all the work.
8. Follow the instructions on what it tells you your configuration is for your wireless network.
9. Go to your laptop, apply said instructions.
10. ???
11. Profit.

Won't connect to AT&T DSL service


Most desktop computers do not come standard with wireless connectivity, and the 530s is no exception. To connect to the internet, you will need either an ethernet cable to run between the computer and the DSL box, or a wireless card, which can be installed inside your computer, allowing you to access wireless networks.

Trying to network xp pc to wireless laptop


Right click on the drive you want to share. Ex: C:\Vol-xx = name. In the pop up window click Sharing & Security. This needs done to all the drives you want access too. To share a printer. Everyone must have the printer drivers installed. The Pc that has a direct connection to the printer must also Share the printer on the network. Open Printer & Faxes, highlight the printer you want to share. Click File than click Sharing follow windows instructions.
Small suggestion regards to the wireless side of the network. Suggest you setup security so others close too you can not tap into your network. (common).
