Re: Dl 614 , wireless connection problems
On a similar model, the advertised range is anywhere from 50-100 meters outdoor or open air. Inside the house or within the office, the walls, doors, drapes, furnitures etc obstruct the signal and brings down the range to less than half.
What we have tried to improve the signal range:
1. Install the AP/Router high up not just on top of a closet or cabinet but really high, about a foot from the ceiling;
2. Approximate the very center of the various locations of the laptops and install the AP/Router there;
3. Disabled and did not use security WEP, WPA but turn MAC Filter on;
4. Use an external hi-gain omni antenna;
5. Install a second similar unit at the farthest coverage and run it as a repeater;
6. Replace the AP/Router with the new N type (which again claimed to be 4X wider and 12X faster) which made us go back to step 1.
It's a love/hate experience and we ended installing more repeaters. But it works.
Hope this give you an idea or two (but hopefully not the frustration nor the headache). Post back how things worked out your end. Cheers

You will need to check the wireless settings of the router is there any computer connected to the router ? If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer. Router set up page is the page where you can check all the wireless settings of the router.
When you connect the MAC to the router with the CAT 5 cable it works , that means the wired connection of the router is working but the wireless is not working. You will need to check the wireless settings of the router. Is there any computer connected to the router with the cable ? If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router and open the set up page of the router.
Most home router has an IP address of 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1. If you dad's laptop can connect to the router just fine, then it's a problem with your linux laptop. Can you see other wireless networks on your laptop?
Were you able to connect sucessfully w/o any wireless security? If No, then try this first but if Yes then try to verify your WEP keys. You might be mistyping it at the wireless desktop with the WB311.
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.
