I recently bought a Dlink DI-514 to connect my laptop to my current sbc dsl. I setup the network properly, ran the setup instructions, and can connect to the internet with my hard wired desktop. When I connect using my laptop, it drops the connection and I have to reset the router.
:tazz:
I traced the problem back to the DHCP client list. When all setup, it lists only my laptop IP address, not the hard wired desktop. I tested the IPconfig on both comps, and they are within the range of the router, one ending in 100 and the other in 110. I called D-link and got their usual FAQ sheet help, suggesting I update the firmware. Did that - no help.
:mad: ;)
Before I throw the router through my window - why will it only recognize my wireless laptop IP and not the hard wired desktop comp that I set it up with, and how do I fix it so my network won't crash anymore?

very strange so do these systems have static ips or are u using the router as a dhcp server to assign each system a ip?

my router is a dlink 504t was problamatic to start with after a couple of firmware updates most went away so try that if ur still having problems try to set it up more manually so specify the dns server and disable dhcp and use statics see if any of that helps.

Which modem do you have?
which is handling the connection? the modem or the router?

If you have the speedstream 5100, and it has a total of 5 lights, and 4 are lit and green, do a hard reset of your router and just plug it in.
