Let me make sure I understand the issue. You have a wireless adapter that works on one laptop but not the other? If so, blow out the card slot on the defective one with compressed air. Make sure it's firmly in place while the machine is off. So when it's clean and firmly in place, now turn it on. It should recognize and come right up.

If not, you may have to reinstall the device. I mean the actual slot. remove the wireless card, Right click on my computer and hit properties. Hardware tab, then device manager. Find the PCI slot in the list and delete it. reboot the laptop and it will automatically reinstall the slot. after it says your new device has been installed and is ready to use, put the wireless card in and it should work.

Thank you for using FixYa
Wireless connections have a lot in common so here is a link that will give you the general configurations for a wireless Router to PC. Keep in mind that you will need to configure both the computer and the router in two separate steps. That is why it is best to use the setup disk that normally comes with a new piece of equipment and the cables.

Also keep in mind that the equipment should be matched or designed to work with the other equipment. You will have some kind of a modem either a cable modem or internal modem or external modem that the router will have to connect to.

It is best to allow your own Internet Service Provider to set up the connections. They may not be able to support the configuration if you do not purchase it from them and then you will need to do-it-yourself.

Here are the links for configuring the computer with the different operating systems

Win Vista

Router seems to not be working. when I connect modem line directly to computer i have internet connectivity but none through router. any suggestions?


Install the latest wireless card driver in the computer/laptop.
Try turning if off for 15 secs and power it up, are all the LEDs on?
Check the wireless settings on the wireless card in the computer, does it match the wireless router's settings?

I have a Dell XPS 1330 laptop and a DI-524 wireless router.


Unsure what your problem is exactly but here is something to try. Power off all computers, modem and router. Power up the modem first, and wait until it is completely up before proceeding. Next power up the router and wait until it is completely up, the only light that probably wont be lit is the LAN light. Then power up each computer, they can all be powered on at the same time, that part really doesnt matter. See if that fixes the problem.

ADSL wireless router setup..


I am not sure if its the same config instruction with linksys modems...but usually you can configure it using the setup wizard or manually.

The setup wizard can be found in the installation CD when you bought the modem/router. just insert the CD and follow the instructions given at the screen.

For manual configuration...open your internet browser (IE or firefox) then type http://192.168.1.1 (or check the manual for the correct local ip of your modem) you will see the configuration page in the browser in were you will put the username, password, PPPOA, VPI...etc.

reply back if you need further info. hope this helps.

Cannot Detect Modem during installation


You should start by having everything off then power up the modem and wait for all the lights to come on then power on the router after all the lights come on then turn on your pc. If you are not getting these results I would reset the modem and the router and then follow the instructions above. Resetting the modem and router will revert then to the default settings, that might be helpful to start with fresh settings.
Question: Is this for your laptop?
