If initially the Win XP laptop was connected to internet at the cable/dsl modem, its MAC address would have been registered on service setup. If the router is now in place between the Win XP laptop and the cable/dsl modem, you would need to go on the Win XP laptop and log into the router as admin to clone the Win XP laptop's MAC address to the dlink router's WAN interface (internet facing side) so that the cable/dsl modem will see the previously registered MAC address and will enable the internet access.

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.

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/setup/wireless.mspx

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 XP http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/wlan_client_configure.mspx?mfr=true
Win Vista

We have cable internet provided by Virgin. I am accessing the internet by plugging the ethernet cable dirctly into my laptop rather than via my DI524. Have just read a post that says I have to be connected...


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.

I have F5D7234-4V1 with insight internet connection and i have win-xp laptop , ERROR MESSAGE - (windows cannot configured wireless ) tell me what to do - But unable to start WZC on my computer


If you want to use Windows Wireless Zero Configuration to manage the wireless network, you will need to have Windows XP with service pack 2 as a minimum.

With Windows XP and SP2, you will need a Microsoft update for WPA2 that can be obtained from:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/893357/en-us

After installation you will need to use the Windows Zero Config wireless configuration in the control panel to configure the adapter. WPA2 should now be available and work correctly.

Windows XP with Service Pack 3 and Windows Vista offer support for WPA2 without additional updates.

WIFI not working with Linksys wireless-g broadband router/Comcast


Unplugging the wireless router and connecting it again should not have altered the wireless connection/configuration. You have connected the cables correctly because the Internet works when you connect a LAN cable to the router.
The Linksys wireless configuration or the wireless card configuration in the computer was changed it to lose the wireless connection. The wireless card configuration needs to be changed to match the wireless router's settings or change the Linksys with new configuration settings and configure the wireless card accordingly.
To secure your router with a login password and wireless security, please follow my instructions - click on this link :-

Wireless internet connection


I may be able to help with this...but I need a detailed description of how you have things connected between the XP desktop, the cable, modem, the Linksys router, and the laptop. Also, is the Linksys router new?

Typically, the wan port on the wireless router connects directly to the cable modem with a cat5 network cable....then the desktop pc connects to the router...on port 1 for example...with a similar cable. Once the wireless router is set up properly, the laptop should then be able to connect using wireless.
