I have a D-Link DIR 601 Wireless N router connected to an Ethernet port in the wall. The computer connected to it by a cable receives internet fine. My tablet receives wireless fine. My laptop cannot connect. My smartphone can connect but whenever I try to browse to a page it times out. Any ideas to what might be wrong? Here's a screen shot of the wireless settings screen shot of wireless router

It says it support wireless g and n so I don't think it's a problem with the wireless adapters being too old. I guess this is what I get for being cheap and spending $20 on a router. By the way the phone and tablet are running android and the PC and laptop are running Windows 7.

UPDATE: router settings screen shot These settings mostly work. Still on my android phone it doesn't work well. It usually says not in range but works the first few times after disabling and enabling my wifi.

My first thought is your laptop does not support 802.11N/G the phone problem requires more details –  Ramhound Aug 30 '13 at 20:14

1 Answer 1

  • Update 802.11 mode to b/g (disable n)

  • Update your WPA Mode to WPA (not WPA2)

your device might be not not support n or wpa2 security mode or both.

try with this change to see if this it can help.

If not, you can try factory reset your wifi or there can be config somewhere else. problem can come from your device as well.
