It seems like my efforts to extend my wireless network has required me to first back track and get some of the more basic elements working. I have D-Link DI-524 Wireless Router with Firmware Version: 1.23 , Mon, 24 Jul 2006.
When I go to HOME WIRELESS and try to enable WEP encoding, the router does not reply the the "apply" function key. As I recall, with prior versions of the software, clicking the "apply" function key used to lead to a screen change and the message, "the device is restarting." Now nothing seems to happen even if I let the router sit for quite a while. It never seems to accept a WEP code. (Yes I know that the WEP code is easily broken, but I want to get it working before moving on to a more sophisticated code. )
However, if I use the "wizard," I can get it to accept a WEP code and to limit access to the wireless network.
Why might I be able to set it up using the "wizard" and not be set it up using the dialog box screens?
