Question about D-Link Computers & Internet

1 Answer

We are having problems with our D-Link DIR-412. We are trying to connect to the internet with a Rogers Rocket Stick (3G USB modem) in the router with the router connected to one computer with the ethernet cable and a laptop connected wirelessly. We have had both computers working through the router but then they stop working and we are unable to get a connection. We have tried the automatic configuration and the manual configuration with no luck. I'm hoping you can give me some ideas of what we can do to fix our connection problems. Thank you for your assistance, Robin

I attempted to use D-link equipment TWICE in the past...

I went as far as wasting a net of 3 hours each time with their "TECHNICAL" support...

OVER & over... to the definition of insanity...
Had anything worked I would tell you ABOUT IT.

I would strongly recommend you return them from
WHERE-EVER you purchased them... NOW.

My next was a single unit NETGEAR...

Cost less and I had cable connected my video server
WIRELESSLY... in a matter of minutes.

My OPINION: Avoid the pain.

SOURCE: Problem with the wireless d link DIR- 635

I'd try doing a power cycle. Power off all the equipment. Plug in the Modem untill the online light is solid, then plug in the router, then i'd turn on your laptop.

Ensure that your connecting to the right network. Under the network settings the SSID is your Network name. Make sure it's not a generic name.

If you have a cable provider, you can just bring it to Geek Squad. They'll setup the router and setup all the security features in the store within about 10-15minutes.

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: 2wire Wireless router not working w/Comcast cable modem

Its almost impossible to connect a 2wire DSL router with a Cable modem. They dont go hand in hand.
Although you can connect the outgoing ethernet wire from the modem in the last ethernet plug on the back of the router and then have the ethernet connections coming from the router. But not wireless. and if you find a way, contact me at

Is this the first time you set your router? Make sure that the cable from your modem to your router is connected properly. You can also try connecting the modem directly into your PC just to make sure your modem is connected to the internet. If it is working without the router, reset your router then connect the modem again to your router.

My Dir 412 router was working good then all of a sudden it lost internet connection every time i go to connect it says network busy and the little light stays orange help.

First try a new LAN cable between you router and the internet modem. Reboot both your modem and router. Connect directly to you internet modem to make certain it is staying connected to the internet. If not then you have a modem service issue. If OK, then The final solution is a factory reset of your router. You can do a factory reset by logging into the router using you browser. Go to the settings and perform a factory reset

If you forgot the router password, you ill have to do a factory reset by locating a small hold on the back of the router and insert the tip of of paper clip for about 10 seconds while the power is on. The router will be reset to out of box status and then you can ssets-up form scratch.

    I am trying to get on facebook at my school and how would you get it un blocked bios, command center, prompt, and proxy servers are blocked too

    If your school has blocked such time-wasting web-sites, when using any of the school's computers, you risk suspension or expulsion from school, if you try to circumvent their blocking.

    So, assuming that a cell-phone works inside your school, bring your own computer, and buy a "rocket stick" (it connects to the Internet via the cellular network), and connect that rocket-stick to a USB port on your computer. Voila -- "bring-your-own" Internet access. Monthly fees apply.


    for details about how to purchase a rocket-stick.

    Can I get my d 615 to work with Rogers high speed USB stick?


    The Rogers high speed USB stick will only work when plugged into a computer.

    The stick does not work the same as a regular wireless card and so you can not use it to connect to your router.

    You will need to have a seperate wireless network card to connect to your router, then your computer will be able to connect to both the network and the internet.

    Thank you,
