      Wireless Issues with D-Link Router

      Hi there,

      Just installed the new D-Link router I have from Sky, however it does not connect to the internet using any wireless laptop I have. It does connect to the network fine however. It works fine from Ethernet, as I am typing you this using an ethernet cable.

      Is this a known problem and can anyone help?

      Re: Wireless Issues with D-Link Router

      About last month, only just out.

      Just to update, all is working now, except one laptop. It connects fine, but no internet. I can connect to the router settings using 192.168.0.1 which claims the internet is up, but when I put in a web address it cannot resolve the address. It only affects this one (Vista) laptop - any ideas?

      My sisters laptop uses vista, it has huge problems with connecting sometimes. I sorta fixed the problem by giving the laptop it's own address. If ya need help doing this give me a shout.

      I've tried using manual IP settings already, no luck. It's set itself automatically using DHCP to 192.168.05, with the gateway at 192.168.0.1 - which is the same gateway as the other machines have set themselves to. All firewalls and anti-viruses have been turned off too.

      Open your cmd prompt and type ipconfig /all check that the laptop has been assigned DNS addresses.

      What's the error you are getting? Is the laptop showing a connection at all?
