I have a D-Link DWA-125 Wireless Adapter on my notebook and it connects to a D-Link DIR-601 Router.

 

It works fine printing to my Samsung Wireless printer as long as I am not connected to the internet (I only connect via dial-up)....but when I am connected to the internet instead of loading the web page I want, my browser loads some sort of D-Link error graphic stating that I cannot connect to what I wanted to.

 

(I'll load an image of the error message later, I didn't think to copy it while it was there)

 

Again, I do not use the router for any kind of internet connection.

 

This is getting to be annoying as I was trying to print some postage and in the middle of it all I had to manually move and connect the printer to the notebook before my postage session expired.

 

I've not noticed any other Wi-Fi problems except this one. I am hoping there is some sort of setting set-up incorrectly, but I really don't understand wi-fi set ups at all. I got lucky and it worked without me tinkering much.

 

The problem occurs in Firefox 22.0 as well as IE8

 

Thanks

 

ps I'm wondering if my browsers are bypassing my dial-up connection and trying to use the (not internet connected) router/hub to load web pages instead...?

Have you tried checking your internet options in control panel specifically on the Connections tab - dial up? I would presume this is not a Dlink default browser homepage.

I will load an image of the error web page later today. I'll have to recreate the failure, which shouldn't be too difficult.

It seems that the problem is due to internet connection is down on your ISP end or the Dlink wireless adapter is not able to communicate on Dlink wireless router that redirects you to load internet on Firefox or IE. If you remove the Dlink router SSID from manage wireless networks in Network and Sharing, both the dlink adapter and router would not be able communicate anymore.

For what it's worth. To copy that error message:

 

While connected to the internet via dial-up I plugged in the usb adapter into the notebook and tried to load a new web page in a new tab.

 

The new browser tab pulled up that error message, which I saved. Then I unplugged the adapter (while still on-line) and subsequent web pages loaded correctly.

Also found out...

 

If I use the usb wi-fi adapter at my library hot spot it works fine at loading web pages in new tabs.

Since this is a notebook with builtin wireless adapter, why not use it instead of having another DLink USB adapter?
