Re: Random Disconnection and WLan indicator lights
Saw this on another post for this router:
"in the DHCP configuration on LAN menu. the lease time was set to 72 hours (3 days) i change it to 720 hours, cos that was the most it would allow... so hopefully that would fix it. "
maybe you're having the same problem.
another usefull thing to do is to update the firmware from the D-link site. some stability issues such as this should be fixed by a firmware update.

If this does not work you have to then check if WIFI is disabled on the laptop. Go to start> connect to / network & settings > and open the networks window, here LAN/ WLAN / other internet connections will be shown, right click on the WLAN logo and select enable if it is disabled.
Still if this does not work, it means something is wrong with the OS, the PC needs a format.
