I bet reading the manual would have helped as well. Or actually inputing your Model router into D-links support site.
http://support.dlink.com/faq/view.as...stion=di%2D624

You will find most of the answers to most of your computer questions just by visiting the manufacturers website or just reading the manual that came with the device. Not too mention, D-Link sends a Setup CD that runs a Wizard to setup everything.

I would guess that he looks in the wireless connection status of the router. Usually, when you have one wireless computer, and four connections are established, that's a big clue.
