    Hi,
    I have 2 laptops and one of them wont connect to my new D-Link DIR-615. It worked for a while but then suddenly the morning after I installed the router it fails when I try to connect to the wifi. Now I've tried everything I can think of. Reinstalled the router with different encryption. Updated drivers to networkcard. Deleted saved network wifi settings.

    The thing is that the laptop that struggles with the WiFi earlier had some problem connecting to internet with cable. It worked for a while but then suddenly it stopped working. Then I either rebooted the computer or rebooted the networkcard and it solved the problem. Allthough the problem kept coming back. I don't know if these 2 problems is somewhat connected.

    with a cable connected to the router and PC - can we see an ipconfig /all

    what windows version is on the PC?

    can we also see an ipconfig /all from a working PC

    make sure we know which ipconfig /all belongs to which PC


    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ipconfig /all

    If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post the results in a reply here.
    Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and paste here.

    If you do not have another PC - do you have a phone connected to the internet - can you photograph the result and post the image in a reply
    Note: you will see entries named Tunnel adapter Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface: we dont need to see that information - JUST the infomation above those entries

    We would like to see the results from an ipconfig /all - post back the results in a reply here.

    For Windows 8
    To open a Cmd Prompt or an Administrator Cmd prompt from the Desktop. Use Win + X and choose Command Prompt or Command Prompt (Admin) from the list.​

    For windows version, XP, Vista, W7
    Hold the Windows key and press R

    Now type CMD

    Now press Enter to open a command prompt box (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):​

    In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

    Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

    ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

    It will export the results into notepad and then automatically open the notepad and display on your screen.

    Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results into a reply here
    to do that:
    From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
    all the text will now be highlighted
    Next
    From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy

    Now go back to the forum - goto the reply and then right click in the reply box and paste the results.
    The results from the notepad should now appear in the forum reply.
