D-Link G604T Unable to connect the Wireless part

OK, real new at this, so may need some prompting!

Have a D-Link DSL-G604T Router and ADSL Modem that has LAN ports as well as
a Wireless connection.

Have set everything up via the HTTP:// wizard. Internet connection works
fine and other computers connected to the router via cable all get Web
access.

Wish to connect my Toshiba Portege Laptop to the Wireless part of the
Router. It sees the SSID and have 100% signal strength and make connection
and supply the 128 Bit ASCII key.

Now if I let Windows (Win XP with Service Pack 2) in the Laptop control the
Toshiba Wireless LAN Mini PCI card, then I get a full strength connection
but cannot access the Internet thru the Router. The Wireless icon in the
tray does NOT have a Limited connectivity exclamation on it. Have tried all
firewalls off and no success. Note the ADSL Internet connection is working
fine via the main computer and works to the Laptop if I use a LAN cable to
the router. It just doesn't work with the Wireless connection.

Now if I use WinC software to manage the Laptop wireless card, it again sees
the SSID and gets an IP address but again no Internet connection, although
this time the icon in the tray indicates "Limited or no connectivity".

I have used the wireless Laptop connection in hotels or Starbucks when
travelling, so it does work.

Any help appreciated!

Just because you see a good signal strength and see the SSID it is not an
indication of connectivity. A wireless device i.e laptop, has to go through
a couple of processes that the wired lan doesnt have to go through.

There are 2 steps that are done with a wireless device. First is
authentication, this is where you are checked to see if you are allowed on
the network......i.e correct wep key.

The second is association, if you dont get associated, then you wont get to
access the rest of the system, i.e internet.

I would say that you have a security setup problem. The way to determine
this is to just set up the router for open authentication and no encryption
and see if it works. If it does then go back through the steps of applying
security.

You did not mention what type of security you are using, if you are using
wep then you need the correct keys for the Ap and the adapter. If you are
using wpa-psk with TKIP or AES, then your adapter must also have the correct
updated driver to support it. Check your vendor site and see if you are
running the latest driver that supports it.
