Hi,

Based on your post of Fn + F2, I would initially suspect that your laptop's wireless is the issue. Perhaps you may want to double check the drivers installation and determine if there is a hard switch to activate physically the wifi network. Additionally, you may want to check the manufacturer's website for updated WiFi drivers, download and install them.

Further, it may help if you can post back make and model of your laptop.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Unable to connect to netflix


There are a number of things to consider when you can't get an Internet connection.


1) are you connected to a network that is connected to the Internet? You connect to any network either through a wired or wireless connection. If wired is the Ethernet cable connected to a router (or modem) from your Internet provider? If wireless, are you logged into your wireless router or hot spot? Nothing will happen if you aren't connected to a network that is, itself, connected to the Internet.

2) If you are connected, is the device to which you are connected (wired or wireless) itself connected to the Internet? One quick way to fix it if it isn't is to simply turn it off, wait about 15 seconds, and turn it back on. Then turn your computer off, wait 15 seconds, and turn it back on. This is a "network reset" and fixes Internet problems about 80% of the time.

3) Finally, if you are connected and the device to which you are connected is itself connected to the Internet, are your network setting suitable for the Internet. To fix these problems go to Control Panel, Internet Options, Advanced, Reset. Resetting the Internet settings often clears up the problem.

4) Once you do these things your Internet should be okay, provided that you are receiving an Internet connection from your Internet Service Provider (ISP). Before calling them and checking you might like to borrow another persons computer or have them come over and see if they can connect. If they can you will probably need to take your computer to a shop as there are probably technical issues you are not going to be able to resolve easily. If they cannot connect then the problem is usually in the modem/router provided by your ISP or in your account (you'd be surprised how many people don't pay their bill and are surprised when they can no longer get on the Internet. It's funny how that works.)

Configuring dlink 1320


Wirelessly or cable ?
D-Link Router to an AT&T DSL Modem
With an always-on, high-speed Internet connection like DSL (Digital Subscriber Line), a router is a prudent addition to your local network.
It filters out unauthorized access to your network, which prevents an intruder from accessing computers that are connected to that network.
However, getting your computers, routers and modems on the same page may not work right "out of the box."
There are a few things you must be aware of, especially if this is a wireless network.

Unplug your DSL modem and D-Link router.
In order for the network to properly recognize its devices, these devices must be attached in a specific order.
Plug in your DSL modem's power cord.
There is usually no power button on a modem.
Simply plugging in its electrical cable will turn it on.
Give your DSL modem a couple minutes to re-establish its connection to AT&T's network before taking any further action.
Plug in your D-Link router's power cord.
Like the DSL modem, this router will probably not have a power switch; simply plug in the power cable, and it turns on.
Let the D-Link router sit for a couple minutes while it establishes its connection to the DSL modem and AT&T's network.
Physically attach your computer to the router with an Ethernet cable.
Even if the router and modem are wireless, a physical connection must be established to properly configure the router.
If this is not a wireless network, then your setup procedure is essentially complete.
To access a D-Link router on your network, open an Internet browser and navigate to the 192.168.0.1 address.
This will bring you to your D-Link router's interface.
The default User Name is "admin" (without the quotes), and there is no password.
Enter the User Name and click the "Log In" button. This will bring you to the Setup window.
Refer to your D-Link router's documentation for changing the default password (highly recommended) and forwarding ports.
If this is a wireless network, you have a couple further steps.
First, change your network's SSID (Service Set Identifier) title, so that you can recognize it when other wireless networks are nearby.
Also, choose your wireless encryption and passphrase. WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2) is a solid option.
Specific instructions depend on your model of D-Link router; so refer to your documentation (which can usually be found at the manufacturer's website if you do not have it on hand).
Disconnect the Ethernet cable from your computer.
Your new wireless network should be visible with your computer's wireless adapter.
Windows and OS X will notify you of networks in range when your adapter is active.
Connect to the one with your SSID, and enter the passphrase.

Wireless Network D-Link
If you have a D-link wireless network, your computer is susceptible to outside intruders unless you take preventive measures to prevent intrusion.
There are some important settings that you need to change within your D-link control panel to add an extra measure of security.
By changing these settings, the intruders will have no other choice but to choose another computer to attack.

Type the router IP address, "192.168.0.1", into your Internet browser.
Press "Enter" on your keyboard.
Enter your username and password to log into the D-link configuration panel.
By default, the username is "Admin" with a blank password field.
To prevent outsiders from being able to access your D-link router's configuration panel, change the username and password to something more secure.
This can be done by selecting "Tools" from the menu and selecting "Admin."
Select "Administration Settings" and enter your new username and password.
Save your changes by clicking "Apply."

Enter the IP addresses for the computers you want to give access to your router.
You can do this by clicking the "DHCP" link underneath the "Home" tab. Click "Apply" to save the IP addresses.
Select the "Wireless" link underneath the "Home" tab.
Enter a name in the "SSID" field to identify your wireless network.

Choose "WPA" for your "Security" option.
WPA will provide the highest level of security for your wireless network. Create a WPA password to access your wireless network.
For maximum security, enter a combination of numbers, letters, and symbols.
Store your password in a safe place in case you ever forget it.
Click "Apply" to save your settings.

Install a software firewall program on your computer to add an additional measure of security for your wireless network.
A few of the popular firewall programs available are Norton Antivirus, McAfee and Zone Alarm.

I canot connect to the internet but my laptop detect my router


Make sure your modem is plugged in, first and foremost.

Make sure your modem is connected to your Router with the Ethernet cable.

If you're unable to connect still, do a reset on both the modem and the router at the same time. Unplug both, wait for 30 seconds and plug them back in again.

If you are still unable to get an internet connection, right click your wireless connection in the toolbar on the bottom left (Assuming you're using a PC). Click "diagnose" and it will run through your connection, to identify the problem.

Follow the instructions on screen.

If you are still unable to get a connection after trying these, contact your ISP and have them reset the modem and walk you through wireless setup for their particular system.

Thanks!

Hope this helped!

I have a D-Link Dir 601 wireless router. I've misplaced my pass word, how do I access it?


You will have to reset it completely so it will be like the day you bought it. Theres a very small button on the back hold it in for 10 secs then release (I normally use a pen) . You will now have to connect to your router and reset your username and new password. By default the username now will be admin and password will be either admin or password. Connect to your router by typing 192.168.0.1 into your internet browser and make sure its plugged in with a cable not wireless you can go back to wireless once the details are back in. Cheers and please vote

I cannot connect ipod touch to the internet through d-link DIR-600 wireless router


If you know your password for your wireless and other wireless devices can connect to the wireless network, check the type of security you're using. All apple media devices (ipad, iphone, itouch) have issues with multi key WEP encryptions on some routers. Try changing the encryption type on the router to WPA, or if available, disable the extra three keys in the router (usually 4 listed).

All started with wireless router (Belkin)


Actually, is does **t really matter what computer *********** in law has or whether she has a computer or **t. Your wireless connection is **t with her computer, it is with the router.

I take it for granted that the router has got a wireless facility , since you said you set it up. Your computer must then also be wireless enabled (internal or Using an USB Dongle).

Set the connection type on the router and your computer as such that there is ** authorization or encryption involved - once you got that working please the ensure that you activate authorization and encryption for security reasons
