have you wired it up right modem into router then router into pc.with dlink you have to setup the router to the pc with the cat 5 cable via the website then setup the wirless there aswell.follow the instructions which tell you to input the ip adress in internet explorer then you can set it could also ring the dlink helpline there very good. darren

cat 5 cable also known as ethernet cable it goes from the router to the pc. it has an rj45 socket on it like the connector that goes into a phone hanset but bigger ussually made of clear plastic. there should be one in the box with the router.
