Have just installed a D-Link DSL-G604T wireless router with DWL-G122 wireless USB adaptor. When I switch on the PC there is no network connection. If I double click on the icon in the system tray I get a Wirless Network Connection Screen and by going to change advanced settings then wirless newtorks i can get the network up and running by checking the "use windows to configure my netwrok settings". Is there an easier way of doing this. Ideally I want to switch on the PC and get started rather than following the above process.
Okay, go through my step-by-step at click here and we'll go from there.
Additionally, it would be great if you could check some of your services (run services.msc): You need to look at Plug & Play, DHCP Client, Remote Access Connection Manager, Remote Access *Auto* Connection Manager and Wireless Zero Config. Possibly Network Location Awareness and SSDP Discovery as well.
Were they all set to auto - services do not respond very quickly, and thus need to be set to auto if you think that they will be needed so that when a program or device requires a service, it is ready immediately.
