D-Link wireless router woes


Question

taosd

I have just set up a wireless network with one computer wired and the other (A laptop) wireless. We had the internet working on both computers then we tried to set it up to share files between the computers. After this step it all went to hell. The sharing never did work, even thought the computers were part of the same workgroup each could not detect the other. Now the internet does not work on the wireless machine and when trying to release/renew the IP it gives me an error, it tells me that the DHCP server cannot be contacted. I know the DHCP address is wrong, but do not know how to change it...

any help would be appreciated. thanks.

did you turn on the wireless encryption from the D-link router? If so, you need to enter that info into your laptop's wireless adapter's connection properties.

Had probs with my DLink router too, have you got the latest firmware from their web site? Installed that on mine and it works fine now :)
