Mac won't recognise network

My PC works fine when plugged into the new DI 524, and my Dell laptop recognises the new wireless signal, but my Mac laptop doesn't. I followed the instructions to set up the router for my Mac but when I tried to select 'Using DHCP' drop down box in System Preferences>Network>Built in Ethernet, the IP address, subnet mask and router details didn't appear. I called tech support but they didn't know what to do - please help if you can!! :-)

Based upon the way you worded the message, you were trying to get the Mac working wirelessly? The description of how you were trying to set up your network (SysPref\Net\BuiltInEthernet) is for WIRED connections, not wireless. If you are running OSX and you have a built-in wireless adapter, use System Preferences\Network\Airport choice to set up for wireless connections. If you are trying to use the wire either because you don't have a wireless card or it is not working, check to make sure that the cable is good...maybe hijack the cable that you know works for your PC and test it. Please let me know if I am on the right track to solve the problem.

New HP laptop will not connect to wireless secure network

Problem solved. I disabled the security on my network. I connected the new laptop to the unsecure network. I saved the settings on the laptop for the unsecure network. I rebooted the laptop. I re-enabled security on the router. I tried to connect to the network. I got an error on the laptop saying the network saved settings did not match. I modified the settings to a secure network on the laptop and saved the 128 bit key. Rebooted everything. All works fine now.

About my wireless card...

reset the network settings both on the computer and your router and start again. go to the website for your router and enter the ip or mac address for your wirless card and enable it on your network. to get your computer to recognise the network, turn off wireless, plug it in the local area connection first then for a few minnutes then enable the wireless and unplug the wire and it should recognise.

DI-524 wireless router as wireless switch

You need to disable the DHCP server on your "slave" wireless router ( the di-524 ). In D-link routers this might be called configuring it to be an "Access point".

When this happens, connecting to the second wireless router should cause your computer to obtain an IP address which is in the range of the first router (that is to say, it will use the first router's dhcp server).

You should be able have your laptop connect with an automatic IP address and have it work.

Set up...

Some laptops have a switch that must be toggle for the wireless to work. Check Control Panel/Admin Tools/Services to verify that the Wireless Zero Config is running.

DI-524 One wireless connection makes others not ok

This is unusual, as it seems the router is allocating two pc's the same IP address. Go into your routers settings (internet browser and type the router address, eg 192.168.1.1)' and look at Client DHCP list and look at the IP addresses that each pc has been given and see if two are the same, they should be one digit difference, that being the last. Also go into the properties of both your pc's wireless cards and ensure that they are set to obtain an ip address automatically.
