Wireless network problem for a newbie

  oily 18:44 16 Sep 2004

I have a D Link DSL604 wireless router which I have managed to setup. I have set it up as per the booklet and it says I am connected (presumably to the internet) in the right box on the screen.
However I cannot open my browser and surf (or outlook express). Also my wifi laptop picks up the signal from the router but again cannot connect to the net.
My LAN connection is enabled where am I going wrong before I put the equipment on e bay

Can yopu be a little more precise. Firstly, Whatr OS. Next what exactly happens when you try to open IE or OE.

My operating system is XP home. When I open IE it tries to find home page and presumably as it is not logged on then goes to the did not find page.Same with OE it tries to check e mail accounts but doesnt get them and then gives the fault message.
Could it be a network setup problem?

I believe it is you ISP provided connection settings in your router setup. Check with your ISP for settings such as PPPoA, MCU, and VC and check you have typed your username and password correctly.

I had a similar problem, could connect to the router, but only got 'page not found' when trying to access the internet, the MCU setting was 35 when support told me to change it to 38, it connected straight away. MCU could be MCI by the way, I am not at my computer at the moment.

Have had confirmation (at last) from isp and my settings are correct.MTU I have settings for that but where do I look for it. Also they say adsl modulation auto but I dont have that box on screen.
