Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I just upgraded my linksys 54g to the Dlink DIR-655. I have a dell desktop running vista, and a MacBook Pro. I spent two hours on the phone with Dlink help desk, the level 2 person finally said he thought i had a bad router, so i hung up. Before i unplugged it from my desktop, i turned on my MacBook, plugged it to the router, and it set up in 5 min and ran wireless fine. When i am plugged in to the desktop, i go to Explorer and try to pull up the Dlink router IP and it is like nothing is even connected. What should i do?

The link below will take you to Dell's download page for your machine. From there you select the Operating System and which drivers you'd like to update.

I have just signed up to bt braodband and got a bt home hub. As a result I have a spare BT voyager 54g wireless network modem. Can I use this to print wirelessly to my lexmark printer


You can't use wireless adapter to hook printer to wireless network. You need a wireless print server. Example is Linksys or DLink Wireless-G PrintServer.

Im not sure where the application is installed but I think its a built in feature of your Router. I dont know exactly where to go but you can try (using a computer plugged in the ethernet) typing "10.1.1.1" without inverted commas into the address bar of a web browser. If a password is asked for and you havent changed it. It will be "admin".

After you are in...bwowse to "Parental Control" and "Firewall" and untick the things you dont want to block. Then click save.

Try again. You may need to turn off your computer or modem.

I upgraded my home computer from XP to Vista and now I can't connect to the internet through my Dlink Wlan AirPlus Xtreme G DWL-G132


The Dlink Wlan AirPlus Xtreme G DWL-G132 is not compatible with Vista. The drivers are only for 2000 and XP. There don't appear to be any Vista drivers anywhere on the internet for this card or the AR5005VL chipset the card is based upon.

If you have more than one computer on your network, try disabling the firewalls on all computers and trying again. If this works, then you need to adjust your firewall settings to allow your network to function properly. If this does not work, you may have to log into your linksys router and check the wireless settings.

Let me know what happens.
