I bought a D-Link 524 router last week. I have successfully installed it to the main computer in the house and the dsl modem. I had help from DLink with the configuration.
I installed hardware/software to my son's computer, 2 floors away, and added the configuration information that it asked. The USB adapter link & activity are both on and blinking. My son can periodically see "my" computer on his dlink configuration page but cannot access the computer/shared files/internet.
I am an UNtech but wonder if the problem could be attributed to either:
1. His computer is only P2, 233mhz windows 98se. Dlink says needs 500mhz for the usb adapter. (i didn't know this when i bought it or would have known what his mhz was?) If that is the case why do the link/activity lights function?
2. Could it be a problem with windows>internet options>sharing configuration or any other in that location?
3. Other area windows configuration?
thanks for your help. my son 15yrs saved his money to buy the router so he and his sister can do homework simultaneously and he still can't and is out a fair bit of money.
