    I have hughesnet with a hn7000s modem. I recently bought a dell latitude laptop and dlink di-624 router. Laptop works fine when plugged directly into modem - but when hooked up wirelessly with router - it says I am connected - but web pages say cannot be displayed - cannot access web sites - my ip address and default gateway are exactly the same - should they be?

    please help

    Your IP address should be slightly different from your default gateway. For example your default gateway, assuming its the same as my DI-624, is 192.168.0.1

    Your IP address should be something like 192.168.0.100. Log into your router by typing your default gateway, which should be something like 192.168.0.1, the default username and password for this router is:

    Username: admin

    The password is nothing, just type "admin" in the username field and push enter.

    You should then see a screen similar to this.

    From there click on "DHCP". This will pull up a screen similar to this one.

    Make sure "Enabled" has a bubble in it like mine. If the bubble is on "disabled" then click the "enabled" bubble followed by the "Apply" check mark.

    This will allow your DI-624 to assign your computer its own personal IP address, which will allow it to connect to the internet.
