Wireless configure issue

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,

    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.

    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.

    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)

    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.

    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.

    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 use that. Unless you are having other problems with your router of which you are not explaining fully.

    I Think I got what you are saying. Go to Control Panel>Internet Options then Connections Tab, there will something listed on the box, you need to delete it and make sure it's blank. You also need to make sure that Never dial a connection is highlighted. Then Click on LAN Settings Button, make sure all box are uncheck. Hit Okay or Apply all the way out. Reopen your IE, and it should be working,given that you are already connected to your wireless network.

    Now I have another laptop(L2) which I want to connect to the wireless at my home along with my existing laptop(L1). My L1 is connected to internet as i have the connection in my Internet Options, when i connect to wireless to L2 i do not get conection unless I add the connection to Internet options. I should not be doing this and automatically get internet on L2, without adding to internet options. how do i do this ?
