Re: got wireless signal but no internet connection
You can try to power cycle your entire network (refresh). This often happens when you have a large network.
power down ALL Computers and disconnect the desktop from the D-Link Switch.
turn off all SLAVE AP's first.
Turn off the Master AP and disconnect one end of the Ethernet.
Turn off the D-Link Switch and disconnect one end of the Ethernet.
Now, turn off your modem.
Leave them for about 10 to 15 minutes, depending on your urgency. Turn on and connect all devices in the EXACT order.
Turn on the modem. wait 2 minutes.
Turn on the D-Link Switch and wait 1 minute. Then connect the Ethernet to the MODEM.
Turn on the Master AP and wait 1 minute. Then connect the Ethernet to the D-Link Switch.
Turn ONE of the Slave AP's. Turn on your Laptop. try to connect to the Internet. If successful, Disconnect from the network on the computer and proceed to turn on the rest of the Slave AP's, Laptops, and Desktop. If its NOT successful, power on the Desktop and try to connect to the internet.
If the desktop connects to the Internet, Check your D-Link's homepage "192.168.1.1" (default) for any wrong settings. If it does not connect, check your DSL Modem's settings.
If the above does not work, post what you did the day before this happened. Probably something small might have messed with the network.

It should work "out-of-the-box".
Be sure to connect using "straight-through" (not "cross-over") Ethernet cables.
Connect from the 'WAN' port on the router to your DSL-modem (or cable-modem).
Power-off the DSL/Cable modem.
Power-on the DSL/Cable modem.
Power-off the D-Link.
Power-on the D-Link.
Reboot your computer.
You should be good.
Unlike notebook computers, most desktops don't come with wireless networking built in. I can't find any mention on Dell's site that the Vostro 200 has wireless capability, so this computer doesn't have a wireless switch. To use your desktop computer on a wireless network, you'll need to install a wireless adapter. USB adapters are very easy to use since you just have to plug them in. They're not expensive and you can easily find them at retail stores and online.
Connect modem lan cable to Router Wan / Internet port.
From Router Lan port you can either connect your system or switch .
wireless : Scan for wireless network from your wireless system. If it shows, connect to your wifi network
Have you tried to reset router. It has to be done in order.
1. unplug router
2. unplug modem
3. shut down computer and restart after waiting 1 min
4. after restarting computer plug power back into modem and wait for all the lights to start blinking
5. after the modem is working plug power back to router and plug in the computer with ethernet cable and make sure you have internet,
6. try to link up with wireless,
If this does not work you will have to setup the router for wireless if it is att wireless you will have to call them to give you the password to set it up.
chack your DSL settings may your not conacted with your sevice provider
chack your locale settings in modem try folowing setups
1. If you have a modem, connect the modem to the router(make sure modem should be connected to the port on which LAN, Internet, WAN is mentioned. It would be a separate one port on the router) and router to the computer. 2. Insert the disk that came with the router, inside the computer. 3. Follow the on screen instructions. 4.No, connect to the wireless
The wan port is what you hook your modem to. Wan stands for Wide Area Network, which in your case is the internet. Your house with your 2 pc's and networking equipment would be considered a Lan, local area network.
The 4 ports on the router are switch ports, when you hook the modem up to the switch instead of the wan port the modem will only allow traffic from one physical, (MAC) address to pass through, this is why only one of your pc's can access the internet. The wan port on the router has its own MAC address, so the modem will associate with the wan port and trust all traffic that comes from that port.
Finally, after you have connected the modem to the wan port, pull the power cord on the modem then plug it back in to reset it, this will force the modem to orient with the wan port.
WAN s not for your use now. dont dig with it bro.. tel me one thing.. what kind of connection you have? does the modem stores the password or you type the pass each time manually to connect to internet
