Ok, here is how I've got my DI-614+ set up. I'll assume that the basics are working as i think you said you had a laptop woring on one of the wired ports.
In Wireless/ Advanced/ Performance, I've got the Beacon interval, RTS Threshold, Fragmentation and DTIM all set at the defaults. Basic rates and TX rates are set to 1-2-5.5-11. Preamble Type is set to long. Authentication is set to auto (this setting tripped me up originaly). SSID broadcast is enabled.
I'm using firmware 2.10, I think that's the latest
In Home/ DHCP I have DHCP server enabled .
In Status/ Log I have all log types checked except dropped packets and I have it set up to email me that way I get a printed record of any attempt to access the wireless part of the network.
I also enable the MAC filter only allowing my computers to use the lan, this can be set up later unless you plan to give free access.
In tools/ Time I set up the time server (default NTP server of clock.psu.edu) which goes out about once an hour to keep the time and date correct Helps if you go to look a the logs.
I'm using encryption now but you probably want to get it woking before you do that.
On the Handspring...
Network ID ...same as the d-link
IP address...Dynamic with the Establishment period as Normal (it seems to work just fine on long too)
Network Type... Infrastructure
Power Mgmt... I have it enabled but I've read where everyone seems to prefer it disabled, connect at power up is set at smart.
Encryption is set to 40 bit (which is 64 bit on the D_link) but leave it disabled for now
in the network settings I created a service called Wireless, gave it a user name and password, pick anything it doesn't seem to matter. with a phone number of 00. In the details section Connection type is PPP, Idle timeout is power off, Query DNS and IP address Automatic are both checked.
I did upgrade the software to 1.15 and I think that there was some trick to getting Blazer to show up again, can't think what it was offhand but I do still have it on my Visor. When i connect and go to status, at the top next to Network, it shows "Generic AP" and as long as you are connected there is a small line in the top right corner that blinks to remind you you are on line.
Good luck, Lee
