Specs: Windows 7 home premium, 2.13 dual core CPU,4GB RAM
I just got a new laptop I would like to have it on wireless.It can connect to my linksys befw11s4 router but not to my dad's d-link DIR-655.His router is setup this way:
security OFF
mac filtering ON
DCHP OFF
My laptop is setup this way:
Wireless:
static IP:192.168.1.46
subnet mask:255.255.255.0
default gateway:192.168.1.1
It can connect via wired,but not wireless.
I tried turning off mac filtering,but it didn't work.
The laptop is a HP G62-454CA.

Why is your laptop set up with a static IP address? It should be getting it from the router.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

It's set up with a static ip because the router has dhcp turned off.
I tried turning off mac filtering.
