Question about D-Link Computers & Internet
Posted by Anonymous on
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.

Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
Here's a link to this great service

Often the nets and subnets are NOT the same.. ie The Fixed connection often uses 192.168.0.1, 192.168.1.1, however sometimes the wifi is setup 10.1.1.1, or 10.0.0.1 etc, have you checked this? Esentially tho ya router is an "Acess Point" and ya Lappy etc is ya "Client" the links below has a lot of tutorials to help have a look. http://portforward.com/routers.htm http://portforward.com/guides.htm

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.

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.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
