    Hi all i hope someone out there can help with a problem i have. I have a
    desktop system with a D-link DSL- 302G modem bought and configured by optus
    for optus DSL and i have just bought a wireless router also Dlink DI-624+
    using a realtek ethernet card in the desktop with ethernet cables linking the
    modem and router to the desktop, then i bought a notebook Hp compaq with a
    texas instruments wireless card, my problem is that the desktop is connected
    to broadband no worries and access the internet but the laptop shows the
    wireless connection working and an unsecured network to connect to but also
    the message "local area connection" a network cable is unplugged with two
    monitors with a red cross through them. It seems to want to connect to the
    net put comes up with page cannot be found. Sorry if i sound a bit dumb but
    this is new for me, thanks...

    You say the wireless connection is working - can you browse the internet OK?
    If the answer is yes then the error message you are seeing may well relate
    to an ethernet port on your laptop - which of course you are not using. Go
    into network connections and disable that Local Area Connection, Or right
    click on that LAC icon and click on properties and uncheck "Notify me when
    this connection has limited or no connectivity"

    .... if your wireless IS NOT working, disregard and post back

    1-Check your TCP/IP property sheet and make sure your computer is setup to
    'obtain IP automatically.

    2-Check to make sure you are pulling an IP from the router.(Start, Run, type
    in IPCONFIG)

    3-Make sure the DFG is the IP address of the router.

    4-Make sure you don't have a router/modem sitting in front of your router.

    Try this and post back the results.
