If it is a brand new unit, the default confiration should work for most Cable and DSL providers. If you use DSL and need to setup a PPPoE login and password, you just need to point your browser to http://1292.168.1.1 or this would all depend on the make and model of your router.

You can also reference the manufactorer's support page to find the owners manual and resetting and confiruation help. The owners manual will also discuss the firewall, port forwarding, universal plug and play (UPnP), and more.


For a D-Link AirPlus DI-524, look at the bottom of your router and locate the revision. Then visit and select DI then 524 and choose the revision. That website will show pictures and show you where to find the revision. From there you can download the manual.

With the question being vague, all you need to set it up is a cable or dsl modem with an ethernet cable running to the WAN port of the router. From there, you need another ethernet cable running to another computer OR if it wireless, connect to the wireless SSID (network name). You may need to configure the router for the SSID.

Hope this helps!

Problem using Wa1003A and Tew 432 brp to share my internet

lan wires are the same. lan wires used to connect your computer to your modem can also be used to connect your Wa1003A adsl router and TEW 432 brp.

you just got some things mixed up.

1. you should set your Wa1003A adsl router to bridge mode. At this point, it will just be "pass through" device and will not be the one who will ask for IP adds from your ISP.

2. configure your TEW 432 brp with your pppoe username and password. Your TEW 432 brp will now ask the network for the IP address to that it can connect to your ISP.

3. leave your lan wires the same.

Connecting 2 routers (ASUS WL-500W and D-Link DSL-G604T Wireless)

This will give you a "Double NAT" setup. Meaning, Your D-Link router is connected to the external internet address assigned to you by your internet service provider. More than likely this is a DHCP address you do not control. Your D-Link router is then translating the address to the 192.168.1.x network. This is the first NAT translation. You are then connecting the ASUS router to DLINK, causing a second NAT translation. (Internet ADSL --> D-Link WAN Port --> D-Link Lan Port --> ASUS WAN Port --> ASUS Lan Port to computer/server/etc. ) If both of your routers are giving out DHCP addresses, then this is all that is required.

Wireless access point connecting to router...

The question is how do you want to cable the netgear and what do you want to do with it.

If you cable a lan port of the DLink to the Netgear WAN port you will have two subnets that must be addressed differently. Opening up and forwarding the ports for XBox could be difficult.

I believe cabling the Netgear as an access point makes more sense. CONFIGURE THE NETGEAR BEFORE CABLING. This is achieved by wiring a lan port on the DLINK to a lan port on the netgear and ignoring the wan port on the netgear. This will involve configuring several router items that should be completed before the devices are cabled together. You will need to remember the Netgear's new network address and probably use a static IP address from a computer to configure it back into being a router after these changes, if required. Or reset the configuration to factory default following the users guide.

First the Netgear needs DHCP turned off as it will be part of the DLink's network and not a separate subnet - the DLink will perform the DHCP services.

Second the LAN side of the Netgear will need a static IP address in the DLink's network. This is where it may get tricky for you. Verify the DLink has an IP Address like and a subnet mask like That means all IP Addresses in your network start 192.168.0.??? where ??? is unique for your network. Verify your DLink router has a set of addresses reserved in the DHCP setup for dynamic address assignment these addresses like to If the above is true or with the information you extract from you DLink router you need to determine where you can create static IP addresses -- in the above case to are available. You need to assign one of those like to the LAN side of the NetGear Router. You will probably want to assign another to the XBox == like You will probably need to deal with opening ports or placing the XBox into the DMZ of the DLINK router which will require a static IP Address.

Now cable the devices

When considering the XBox Configuration below the DLink is the router that must be configured to allow the open ports or DMZ access to the Xbox == the netgear is not functioning as a router in this configuration.

Check out the following links on XBox Configuration if required.

The second link may be the best to start with.

The generic connection and configuration document

This is a good description of possible router2.gif options.

If you need assistance setting this up in your environment leave a comment on this problem and I will respond.

I am assuming for discussion the following connections of the routers. I am also assuming subnet masks of on both networks. The WAN side of the HN7000 conforms to the requirements of the ISP. The HN7000 has it lan side address set to connected between the ISP to the WAN port and the Linksys from a LAN port to the Linksys's WAN Port. What is the WAN side address of the Linksys? -- It should be either be static 192.168.0.? unique and not in the DHCP range of the HN7000 or should be dynamic. If you utilize DHCP it should be enabled for both routers. The LAN side of the linksys router is If the addresses are set up as stated and the routers are either as described or reversed.

Can you access the internet from the HN7000 by wire?

Can you access the internet from the Linksys reliably?

If either of those two are not true assure the DNS servers are established in the routers for DHCP or in the network adapters if that is preferred -- redo the test above and assure access from both networks is possible using wired computers. Attempt to configure the both routers from a computer wired to each router -- attempt to open configuration 2 times on each router and one time each from both wired machine -- record what works and what doesn't.

I would not be surprised in this configuration that the linksys could only be configured from the a device attached to it. But the HN7000 could be configured from a connection to either router.

Test the wireless connections to the internet as appropriate.

When done report any issues in a comment to this problem and I will assist in determining steps to correct issues. OK?

Router Configuration in "Wireless Client" Mode

Hi, If I understand you right, what you want to do is to make the DI-524 as a repeater, i.e. receive from the "external wireless access point" and re-broadcast to your "small home wireless LAN". Unfortunately, no. D-Link made it a point not to enable repeater mode in the DI-524 model (firmware has no support for wireless distribution service). Other than your old DWL-900AP+, one other model they have that can do this is the DWL-G710 but only in WiFi and not in the Ethernet port. On some other brands of similar feature models, the original manufacturer's firmware may be replaced with an open source firmware with more features enabled. An example is the LinkSys' WRT54G and the replacement firmwares by Sveasoft and another named DD-WRT. Hope this be of some information to you. Post back should you require additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
