Dlink 615 validating identity
Both computers have "dlink" as the SSID (whatever that means).On the PCI card, I verified it is set to "Obtain an IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS address automatically." Did you install the wireless card drivers from the CD that came with it?Having an IP address allows a device to communicate with other devices over an IP-based network like the internet.An IP address provides an identity to a networked device.If you're not already familiar with forums, watch our Welcome Guide to get started.An IP address, short for Internet Protocol address, is an identifying number for a piece of network hardware.If you did, there is a good chance that there is a Trendnet application trying to control your wireless settings, rather than Windows.This guide has some directions and look at the last page, question 4. Usually I don't recommend using the manufacturer's wireless configuration utility, so if you're so inclined you could uninstall that program (if you have it installed) and uninstall the card drivers.
If you don;t want to risk that then just disable the windows wireless zero service by following the directions from the quick start guide I posted. Here's a sketch of the solution I found (if it helps anyone) - my router probably requires an additional setup step or two since it has WEP security: First, I believe the network card must have the same SSID (basically a network name) as the router, in this case I set it to the name "dlink".
Select it, choose properties, and on the authentication tab, uncheck "Enable IEEE 802.1x...." - apparently this will force you to put in an encryption key manually. Write it down on paper and then go back to the other computer and follow the above steps - this time it will prompt you for the key - it's a masked textbox so first type into Wordpad and then paste it in. But you can always generate a new key and start over.
- If you get "Limited Or No Connectivity" go to Association tab - basically the same place as before which is Properties Next question, we actually have yet another computer, so I also bought a USB wireless network card. There are too many variables to make an assertion either way.
Discussions related to using various hardware setups with Sage TV products.
Anything relating to capture cards, remotes, infrared receivers/transmitters, system compatibility or other hardware related problems or suggestions should be posted here. I want to network my computer to hers so we can share Sage TV (and internet). My computer is physically cabled to a Dir-615 DLink wireless router (802.11N).
