    I recently installed a D-link DIR-615 router and I'm having the problem of
    being able to connect to the network, but not being able to access the
    internet.

    When I try to connect lately I get this message:

    Connection unsuccessful

    This computer is connected to *network name* but does not have access to the
    internet.

    I know I have the correct WEP key and good signal strength. I've tried
    changing the settings on the router, but so far I have made no progress.

    Ideas? (links, help, etc. all greatly appreciated)

    WEP is not safe, after you update the router firmware, you should
    change to WPA.

    Please post the text output of ipconfig /all if you still have an
    issue after the updates and the change to WPA
