Question about Linksys Wireless-N WRT150N Router
Make sure the physical connection is good between the computer in
question and the D-Link gateway. If you do not have a solid link light,
try swapping cables. Make sure the ethernet adapter is installed and
If you are running any firewall software on the computer that cannot connect, disable it. Make sure the TCP/IP settings are set to obtain an IP address automatically. Try releasing and renewing the IP address for your ethernet adapter. It should pull a 192.168.0.x address with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 and a default gateway of 192.168.0.1. If it does not get an IP address in this range, specify the address to be 192.168.0.10, subnet mask 255.255.255.0, and add the default gateway and primary DNS 192.168.0.1. Try and go online.
If it still cannot get online, go to the Control Panel and open Internet Options. Restore the default settings on the Security and Advanced tabs. On the Configuration tab, make sure the Dial Up setting is set to never dial a connection. Click the LAN settings button. All you want selected here is automatically detect settings, uncheck the other two boxes. Try and go online.

It is usually easiest to run the install wizard from the manufacturers' website, usually for free, but be sure to be ready to set the items listed below.
To get access, start your browser, and put 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1, or other address for your unit, into the ADDRESS bar (not search box) of your internet browser. Every unit has unique access login and passwords, some are admin with no password, some are admin and admin...seek access information from the website of the manufacturer of your unit.
Things to set:
Note: Routers are intended to be set by geeks. You have to SAVE EVERY page before you leave it, or the changes will be lost. A geek knows this (apparently). The router gives no protest...just dumps your changes.
1. Login password (RECORD THIS!!). Consider taping to bottom of the router. Physical access is not the security issue.
2. Set a recognizable system ID.
3. Invoke wireless security of at least WEP.
a. Assign your own access code, 10 digit home or cell #. Consider taping this information to bottom of the router. (Physical access is usually not the security issue.)
4. Check that your router is set to broadcast its' presence.
5. Change the channel of the wireless to 11, and avoid conflict with landline cordless phones. (Big issue, even the neighbors can interrupt).
There are more secure settings available, all the way down to only allowing certain MAC addresses to have access. A MAC address is a digit unique to each and every network card. Like a fingerprint. Most users do not set mac address limits
