If no wan light bypass the dlink router and check if ethernet cable connected to wan port is working. Once you are able to go online through modem connect cable to WAN if light does not go on log into oruter and clone mac address and save settings.If doesnt work powercycle router and turn modem on first then router next if doesnt work upload latest firmware.

Dlink router is not connecting to the internet


Check the lights on the router to make sure both out going and incoming are on.

Manual link below in case that helps

ftp://ftp.dlink.co.uk/di_broadband_gateways/di-524/di-524_manual.pdf

If not both on contact broadband supplier as IP for router may have been "altered" and will need resetting their end.

Not unknown for an outage to be proceeded by a "spike" which can blow unprotected items.

I have router DI-524 and am unable to connect to internet thru this router. But it says, it is connected


I would do a hard reset by pushing the small button on the back. You will need a small pen to push it. Push and hold down button till the lights flash I would/ say 10-15 seconds should be good enough. Once it's reset try setting up all of your settings again. Remember if you have dsl you will need you username and password to be inputed in some cases. If it is broadband most likely you will not have to bother with username and pass hope this helps.

D-Link DI-524 is not communicating with modem


Checklist:
* Is DHCP configured correctly?
* Connect your server and laptop to a switch (not directly with the cable)
* Can they ping each other?
* Check that the firewall is configured (or switched off if you have another FW in place)
* Default gateway should be your router, not the computers (until you have configured RRAS for example)

Dlink DI524 wireless problem: cannot access the router


If the Router is new proceed to Step 1. If the Router is used power on and press and hold the Reset button for about 10 seconds. It is located next to where the power cord is plugged in. Use either a pen or paper clip to push reset button.

Step 1. Connect one end of an Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port located on the Cable / DSL modem and the other end to the WAN port on your D-Link DI524 wireless Router. The WAN LED light will illuminate to indicate proper connection.

Step 2. Connect one end of an Ethernet cable to LAN Port 1 on the back panel of the DI-524 and the other end to the network adapter in the computer you are using to
configure the DI-524. The LED light for LAN Port 1 illuminates to indicate proper
connection.

Step 3. Once all pieces ar connected. Open your Web browser and type http://192.168.0.1 into the URL address box then press ENTER. Once the log-on pop-up screen appears type admin for the user-name and leave the password blank then click ok.

Step 4. Once you have logged in, the Home screen will appear and you should see a box called RUN WIZARD in the middle of the screen. Click that box and follow the steps.

Setup Step 1 - Click Next
Setup Step 2 - Create Password and click Next
Setup Step 3 - Choose Time Zone and click Next
Setup Step 4 - Setup wizard will try to auto-detect your Internet connection type.

I cannot connect to my router via the IP in the browser


Check first the cables and connections, and the broadband filter.

You need to connect through cable to configure the router.

To access the router panel you need to input the router IP address on Internet explorer bar.

default IP is http://192.168.0.1

If IP is not default, you find out IP by opening the command prompt from start menu>>all programs>>accessories>>system tools (that kind of dos mode). On command prompt type ipconfig/all.
The default gateway is router IP.

On the router access panel default settings are :

User Admin
Password leave blank

See all procedures on manual below.

Copy and paste the address below on your browser address bar.

Dlink di-524 connect to RV042


Hi.

You need to cascade the Dlink wireless router to your RV042.

Suppose your RV042 has a default IP Address of 192.168.1.1, and the DLINK IP uses 192.168.0.1. Your Physical connection is from the regular port of the RV042 going to the WAN/Internet Port of the DLink wireless router.

Once you do that, your Dlink router should automatically obtain an IP from the main router. If it did, configure your wireless settings and you should be able to connect via wireless.

This is just one way to cascade your router to another router.

DI-524 Wireless


Yes you can, it's easy.

1. Just connect one of the LAN ports of the DI-524 to a LAN port of your other router. Leave the DI-524 WAN port empty.
2. Disable the DHCP server on your DI-524, your other router will be the DHCP server.
3. Assign a static IP address to you DI-524, different from your other router's. Example, if your other router has 192.168.2.1, you may assign 192.168.2.4. Make sure that the IP address you assign is outside the DHCP range configured in your other router and that the subnet mask is identical on both.

Router cannot get IP with cisco 675 modem


Hi,

The issue may be due to the existence of two (2) DHCP servers; 1 in the Cisco 675 and the 2nd in the DLink DI-524. You need to disable the Cisco's DHCP server function and assign static IP add & config to the DLink WAN config. This way it will only be the DLink handing out IP adds to the network.

The workaround. Install your original configuration/setting without the DLink DI-524 - PC direct to the Cisco 675 (I am assuming through Ethernet ports). Verify that indeed you are connected to the Internet and can surf the net, check e-mails, etc. Check your Networking Connection Status. Log down your PC's IP Add, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, DNS. For purposes of discussion, let's call this "N1".

After your Internet connection has been verified with your PC directly connected to the Cisco, remove the direct connection and connect the DLink DI-524 in between the Cisco router and your PC.

Log in to the DLink and modify WAN parameters using the "N1" configurations/settings.

It might be of help to disable any security (WEP WPA, MAC etc) at least while configuring.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
