I am using a Rogers (ISP) modem connected to a DLink Wireless router.  One computer in our home connected by ethernet is working well with internet activity.  The other computer, with a wireless adapter, can see and connect to my neighbour's SSID.  However, when I try to connect to my wireless network SSID it will not connect...also it does not ask me for a wireless encryption password and therefore I am not able to get an IP address and be connected to the internet.  I have tried connecting an ethernet cable to this DLink wireless router and it will not connect that way either...it only gives me local access.  What might I do to try to solve this problem?
Thanks,
capreol

What model is your D-Link router?
What kind of encryption are you using for your wireless (WEP/WPA/WPA-2)?
What is the wireless card model and does it support the type of encryption that you are using on your router?
Is this a replacement router/have you used this same SSID/password combination in your home before and if so, you may need to simply go to your Network and Sharing Center - Manage Wireless Networks / Remove your old wireless network that is listed and it should ask for your password again.

check the network adapter TCP/IP settings, make sure that you do not have a static address from your neighbour's router.
also you open a command prompt and type

ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew

I use that ISP, have a Cisco RV220W wireless router and my computer, iPhones and family members' computers all connect with no issue. It is not likely an ISP problem.

On the problem computer, reset TCP/IP (because you said Ethernet did not work):

Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator:  netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt

Then, delete your wireless profile (and the one for your neighbour).  Restart and test.

The D-Link may not be compatible. I see that a lot. That would mean a new router.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Malware that takes over the tcp/ip settings and internet setting.  Run malwarebytes.org and see what happens

Though no operating system was ever stated...
Win7 and higher's netsh command does not offer an "ip" interface.
(e.g. run netsh int /? )

So, the commands to run (from an Administrator: Command Prompt window) in Win7, 8 and 8.1, to reset the TCP stacks, should be

netsh int ipv4 reset %homepath%\Desktop\IPv4reset.txt
and
netsh int ipv6 reset %homepath%\Desktop\IPv6reset.txt
then reboot and try the connection again.

If you connect the computer that is not working to where the computer that is working, does that allow connectivity to the Internet?

Sounds like you may not have the D-Link setup correctly for Wireless and other connectivity. Did you set that up or someone assist you? How comfortable are you with configuring the D-Link?
