I have just installed a new DLink DIR-655 router. My Windows Vista does not see the network when in wireless mode. The router is connected to AT&T modem and the computer will acces the internet when connected via network cable. I contacted DLink. DLink's solution was to upgrade firmware. I upgraded firmware to latest on DLink website. Vista see the neighbors network but not my network with the router 2 feet away. My droid phones connect to router without problems.

Does anyone have a solution or suggestion?

whats your laptop brand and model #
your laptos wireless device may not be compatible with the d-link ,also using you internet browser ,type the d-link ip address[] into the address bar[just click on next when asked for password ] and add a wireless device ,als make sure that the wireless chanel is set the same on both computers

Ditto, manually input the information and see if it registers when forced to find it. I had similiar problems with my router at home. Seeing as how your droid can connect, it doesn't sound like a problem with the router itself. You can always your neighbor if HE can see your network. I'm pretty sure my routers a D-link as well and it connects just fine with my copy of windows 7 and my laptop with XP. Also check your wireless controls. You maybe have a programming issue with the siftware that manages your wireless card. Just had a guy that had that issue. his wireless card wouldn't detect networks and the indicator light was off, so i fooled around and located the controls and reset to auto-govern and it worked fine after that.
