Question about LaCie Computers & Internet
Plugged into the router on the usb port and not picking up on my network. just updated the router. the only thing in the manual that i can find about the usb port on the router says ( Connect a usb 1.1 or 2.0 flash drive to configure the wireless settings using wcn. ) i have no idea what WCN is. Help.
What system are you using, Windows , Linux , or Mac?

you need to run "cat. 5-e" cable from the first router to the other.
if this is not an option, purchase a range extender box, which communicates between the two routers.

Hey Raj - Unplug your modem and router. After 60 seconds plug your modem back in. When the lights return to normal (except the activity light) , plug your router back in. Give it 10 seconds and try it. If this solves your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If not, DO NOT RATE YET. Just add a comment letting me know what happened and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.

SOURCE: Cannot connect to DLink DIR-655
The part below is all you need to look at, the rest is Ethernet which is your wired connection, ethernet card.
Here is what are causing your problems from what you gave me and basically your computer is not communicating with the router:
1)I don't see any IP address for your laptop so you can't get on the internet if you don't have an IP address, also, I don't see any gateway address. The gateway address is your router address, and that address is given to the router automatically from your Internet Service Provider.
So if your computer cannot see the gateway address then the gateway address (router) cannot give you an IP address to get on the Internet.
Your Wireless card looks ok, that is the physical address and if you were able to do the loopback then its working.
So on your laptop I would begin from the beginning. Go into network connections and delete the DLink connection if it is there. Then Start>control panel>Network connections>click wireless network connection>click change settings of the connection on the left window>click wireless network tab>make sure checkmark"use windows to configure my wireless network settings>click add a new network>TYPE IN THE SSID FOR THE NETWORK>ENTER WEP/WPA KEY>CLICK OK, then close and you should be connected.
You said other computers are able to access the internet thru the DLINK so it all points to your laptop not being configured correctly.
HOWEVER :)...I see alot of "Media disconnected in your list. Make sure all of the lights are working on the front of the router, if not check the cabling or call the ISP sometimes the problem is on their end. Hope this helps, keep me updated.

Microsoft has had some issues in regard to external devices (especially after running some updates). There is a registry patch for this situation. Click below to install the patch. It should fix your external drive problem. All the best!

I would suggest you try to change the channel to a higher one and this solves this problem most of the times...You need to go to your router configuration to do that usually by opening a browser and type 192.168 ... and log in into your router...Hope this helps.
