Wireless configure issue

By utkarshg ·
I have a D-Link wireless router configured at my home. I was all good till last month when I could access the wireless as soon as my switch on the wireless and start my laptop (My wireless router is connected to the ISP?s router). However now I don?t know what went wrong, when I start my wireless router and my laptop I don?t get connected to the internet anymore. I have to run the dialer given to me by my ISP and then I get connected to the internet. This started happening after I had connected it to one of my friends home wired network.
Can somebody help me with getting my old setting back I don?t know what exactly should I do. I don?t want to reset my wireless to get this done, as I am scared I will loose it all.
Any and all help is appreciated.
Thanks in advance.


Regards,
Utkarsh

Go into your wireless settings.....

by Peconet Tietokoneet In reply to Wireless configure issue

In your laptops wireless settings you can do a search for your router. Make sure you know the name of your router because there will quite a lot (if nearby) of different wireless signals. When you have found your router signal and name then just click on it and then connect. You might be asked for a password for your router if it is locked down so make sure you have this as well.

Cuople of things here ...

When you connected with your friend's WIRED network was it connected via a cable? If so, you'll have disabled the wireless connection within Control Panel and enabled the (wired) LAN connection in order to join your friend's network.

If it wasn't connected by cable (still being connected by the wireless system) you'll probably find that the laptop is still expecting to find your friend's network instead of your router.

Right click on the wireless icon in your systray and select View Available Wireless Networks - it should give you a list of all available wireless connections, including your own router.

Select your own connection and it should lock onto it.

Some more info

I think i explained the whole thing wrong :). When i start my laptop and the wirless on my compuet i get connected to the wireless network(no problem). However even then i dont get connected to the internet. I now have to run the dialer from the ISP and then i get connected to the internet. I shouldnt have to do this as i have already provided the userid/ password in the wirless routers setting (192.168.0.1)

So are you saying ...

by OldER Mycroft In reply to Some more info

That you can't just open a Browser and connect to the 'net?

What EXACTLY is this 'dialer' that you keep mentioning - I'm not familiar with the term.

ISP dialer

by utkarshg In reply to So are you saying ...

Yes you got it even after opening the browser i cant browse the internet.
This dialer that i am talking is the one that my ISP has given to connect to the internet, my ISP wants me to use its modem to connect to the internet. I have connected the wireless router to this modem and configured it to have all the userid/ passwords. When i did not have this wireless router and was conneting through wire, i had switch on the modem and then connect using this dialer which asked me for userid/ passowrd of the ISP.

Thanks,

You need to go and do another internet connection..

by Peconet Tietokoneet In reply to Some more info

Do another internet connection setup and you should be ok.
Or go into your network settings and make sure that Dialup is not marked.

I mean just that...
If you are having trouble connecting to the internet then just do another internet connection through your control panel:
Start > settings > control panel > internet Options > connections > Setup.

IF your Existing one works , then why are you still posting for answers?

by Peconet Tietokoneet In reply to Existing one works

If your existing one works, then use that. Unless you are having other problems with your router of which you are not explaining fully.
