I set it up today and through cables am accessing the internet fine.
On two seperate windows xp laptops I can see the wireless signal and the laptops say they are connected and that the strength and speed in excellent. But I cannot actually get a internet connection wirelessly. The browsers are are sying they cannot find the server.
I have used one of the laptops before many times for wi fi connections and used it successfully.

If you can connect to the internet using the Ethernet cable on your laptop then the cable modem is configured correctly. If you want to connect to the Internet using the D-Link wireless router then first you need to configure the D-Link wireless settings and then configure the wireless card in your laptop with the D-Link's wireless settings. Remove the Ethernet from the laptop and connect it to the WAN/Internet port on the D-Link wireless router.
Please go in to your router and change the wireless setting from WPA2-PSK to WEP. Ansd then try to connect your laptop. To windows after you change setting to WEP (XP bottom right hand side you have system tray in that you have a wireless sign click on it. It ask for the password which you will change put that password click connect) For laptop also same in case it not work then (window icon>control panel>network and sharing center>wireless connection>properties>put the password click connect (then it will check out the wireless signal after sometime you will'be able to connect). Hope this will resolve your issue.
It could be a conflict with IP adresses. Go to your network connections and right click on wirless connection and go to properties. Scroll down the list to internet tcpip and highlite it. Once highlited go to properties. Then check the set manual ip adress and set it to whatever number you like. leave the bars as is. Do the same to the other laptop but different number.
Go to the router configuration and change the options so you could use both of them, there is an option says only one type of connection or both of them, change it to both, and everything will be fine.
Your sister was accessing the wireless access point at school which is connected to the Internet/WEB access via a router and the school's broadband service provider.
For you to access the Internet using your wireless adapter on your laptop, you need your own wireless access point and connect it to a broadband ADSL or cable modem and then connect it to an Internet Service Provider. Some Internet Service Providers (cable and ADSL) can supply a combined modem/router/wireless Access point.
If you already have a broadband modem all you need is a wireless access point/router. You only need to configure the wireless access point and your wireless adapter so they will communicate with each other. Folow the instructions in the manuals.
open internet explorer, go to tools, internet options, then the connections tab and make sure ' never dial a connection' is ticked, assuming you had a dial up connection before using the router on this pc or if you briefly used it.
