Question about HP Compaq dc7600 PC Desktop
I recently moved to a new house im sharing. My pc has a Airnet wirless adapter installed. It was working fine at the last place I was renting.
My pc detects the owners signal and connection.It shows me there Connection name and it shows me that the signal strength is very good..I have the network key that they have provied me however I get zero connection. When I try to do an IP config I dont even get an ip address or a 0.0.0 all i get is Media is disconnected.
If i hook up directly into their router with an ethernet cable i can get connection..What am I doing wrong?
It is possible that the encryption the router is using is not one supported by your wireless card or OS. Older 802.11 cards do not support WPA and Vista Systems will not connect to WEP.
See if you can get the owner to disable wireless security for troubleshooting, and see if you connect UNsecure. If you can connect with security disabled, then it is time to look at what security your wireless supports and ensure that other wireless restrictions on the router are not blocking the connection (Limits on IP addresses, MAC address filtering etc)

At the bottom right hand corner of your screen, you have a wireless connection icon. right click and view available wireless network...if you see your network there. connect to that network, if secured, then call d-link to verfiy what is your network key. if it is unsecure then you can log on right away.
if that wont allow you to connect then upgrade firmware of router.
