Yes your modem is also a router, thats why i need you to bypass the dlink router and connect directly with the modem/router combo and do an ipconfig and get the ip adress and gate way adress and report back here.

Type the following in command prompt.

ipconfig /release then hit enter.

ipconfig /renew then hit enter.

At this point you will either get a new IP or an error. Post that info here.

I applogize. Please do winipcfg in dos, you should then get a pop up, in the drop down menu select your NIC card. Once this is done see if you are getting an ip adress. If you are getting something beside 169.254.x.x please report the ip and gate way here. If your getting a 169.254.x.x or 0.0.0.0 use the release and renew function. Then report the error you get or the ip and gateway.

Ok well unforutnately without knowing the exact modem you are using its going to be pretty hard to get instructions on how to set your modem to bridge mode.

At this point you need to log into the modem. To do this put the gateway adres you posted above into your browser and hit enter, you will probably be prompted with a username and pw prompt. leave the username blank and for password use admin. This should log you into the modem, once in you will need to look around for info on setting it to bridge mode.

If you canf ind out the name of the modem i can probably find you more detailed instructions on doing this.

are you using the windows configuration tool, or are you using the softwware from the router... there could be a conflict with the router software and windows . try going to microsoft and looking up the knowleddge base for "wireless zero configuration" errors... they can be helpful in troubleshooting connectivity issues with wireless routers.
