DI-524 help.

by duckman / September 4, 2005 12:42 PM PDT

I can access the router through the wireless laptop (Toshiba M55-S135), but cannot get an internet connection through the wireless. When I hook up the router directly, I do not get an internet connection. Granted, I may not know alot about this, but I am following the directions. Any ideas?

I am connecting through the WAN miniport(pppoe), shouldn't I be able to connect through the LAN?

Using DSL?

you may want to forget that miniport, and set the routers Internet type to PPPoE, along with a user name and password the ISP gave you. Then run the Internet Connection wizard in XP and choose to connect through the LAN. IP's and DNS are set to auto.

It wouldn't connect until I updated the firmware. Did you update yours?

Great news, bad news !!!!!

The great news is I got the computers connected !!!!!!!
The bad news is now I have to dissconnect everything to propely relocate the router. At least now I know what to do.
Thanks for the help.

Another question is: The router is in the basement and when I checked for service in the attic, the computer said "service refused, new connection being made". I got internet service in the attic, but I think I was on someone elses service. Is that possible/likely?

Good possibility....

Take a look at your Wireless Connections Icon to View which Networks are Available.

How did you succeed?

The part of the router wizard "set PPPoE", I didn't realize that that was where I put by DSL sign on and password. Thanks again !

I updated the firmware (yet again) today from just last month and finally the wireless security works proper.

I had to use MAC FILTERING in the past to lock out rogue users, but with the latest it finally works as advertised.

A twofer today.

Look at...

Here, I point to, login, click on the STATUS item, then WIRELESS and a list is shown of connected clients. If there are more than yours then someone is freeloading off your connection.

-> Why is this a bad thing?

a. You lose speed.
b. They could be downloading copyrighted material and it could be traced to your connection.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
