I am running road runner digital on my desktop. I am trying to hook-up to the internet on my laptop.

I have a D-Link DI-713P Wireless Broadband Router and
a D-Link DWL-650 Wireless PC Card.

In my desktop I am running Windows 98.
In the laptop, Windows XP.

I seem to have the connections hooked up correctly for the desktop. The laptop, I've done as much as I know to do but still
no internet connection.

Okay, I'm about to pull my hair and anyone else's who comes near me.

Hope you can help.

I'm still trying to figure out my Broadband Router and PC Card problemo. In the configuration utility:

I am troubleshooting the laptop PC Card..... It tells me to check that the SSID "name" is the same as that of the Access Point.

It says: "Check that the Network mode is set properly to "infrastucture" mode when there is an Access Point in the network<i>I'm clueless about this</i>. Otherwise, the mode should be set to Ad Hoc.

Okay, it displays the name of the screen as "default" with no other options.

The Mode displays "Infrastructure" and the other options are:
802.11 AdHoc or
AdHoc

Have you downloaded the latest drivers from Dlink? The ones that come with it, don't work very well with XP.

Also, check out this link

This link describes adhoc and infrastructure. You broadband router is an access point, so I believe that you need to set the card to infrastructure.

I did see that I needed to change AdHoc to Infrastructure. I have now changed that.

Here is what I'm getting from my DeskTop: "Wireless network Adapter not detected. Inser the D-Link Air Wirless Adapter and restart the configuration utility.

On the Laptop: " Local Area connection Intel (R) Pro/100VE Network Connection" - NOT connected.

On my router the WLAN light is not on.

I cannot figure out what I am doing wrong.

DLink Tech Support Stinks! I appreciate your help.

To all of you who tried to help me with my problem. Thank you!

After a week of messing with the problem, I finally got D-Link Tech
Support to tell me that the router was DEFECTIVE!!!!

After I exchanged the router for another, viola!....Internet!

D-Link has a toll-free number which they do not publish in their manual and I had to email them and blast them about not having one before they kindly coughed it up!

One thing I have learned from this episode is, if a first you don't succeed....call tech support!

It would have saved me countless hours and aggravation had I of done so.
