Re: di-604 & di-524
Ethernet will travel over 2 pairs from the basement to your space that has to be less than 100 feet away. You can run it over flat cable, but not get 100 base T, but it is still going to be as fast and quicker than a wireless bridge and regeneration.
If I understand what you're trying to do, it will acutally take 3 routers or 2 and a wireless access point. The key would be to set up one router as a wireless and the other as a bridge. That gets your ethernet signal to the back of the router. Now, you need a wirelss access point or 3rd router to make it be wireless in your space.
Most modern premisies are wired with 4-pair cable. Even if they didn't make home runs from your space to the basement, there ought to be at least 2 spare pairs in the house cable. Those 2 pairs can feed ethernet to your space where you just have to plug in a router and configure it as an access point, or let it be a wireless router for that matter with or without being a DHCP server. In my wildest dreams, I can't even think of a 5 story structore being more than 150 cable feet away, well withing the 300 feet allowed for ethernet.

sounds like the router and modem arent talking what kind of internet connection are you using and have to tried accessing the internet with the ethernet cord that runs from the modem to your computer. if you cant access the internet with that direct connection to the modem you might have a bigger issue
Move your wireless to the second floor or add a second wireless router to your second floor. Use CAT 5 or 6 cable. Run it in a closet or cold air return. Use the special cat 5 or 6 for cold aire return use. Do not put it in a heated duct.
Have you tried a new cable between the router and the modem?
Since the status light is off on the router, that tells me that there is no communication between the router and modem. Is it possible that the router was reset by accident? Resetting it will put all settings to default. If it has been reset then you need to sign on to the router to setup the communication again to your modem. Typically this is done via the IP address.
I can walk you through those steps if that is the case. Try supplying a different cable though between the router and modem. Power off both of them, power on the modem and then power on the router....then try to connect to the Internet.
1. Connect a pc to the router using a cable (wireless won't work) 2. Open a browser and type in: 192.168.0.1 3. Login with username: admin password: (blank) 4. Browse around the menus until you find a setting similar to "use as access point" and select it. 5. Save settings and log out. 6. Connect a cable from a port on your main router to this router's internet/wan port.
This is a problem with the firmware of the router, so the best way to resolve this is to flash or update the firmware of this router then after that reset the router by pressing the reset button for about 15 seconds so the firmware update will take effect....
The wired nic in your laptop will have a separate ip address than your wireless nic. I suspect you either have the router not set to hand out ip addresses, the info it is handing out is wrong, or you may have a static ip set. Did you ever have the laptop working on the wired nic?
Try disabling the wireless connection, plug up the cat 5 cable, open a dos prompt and type;
Notice the information. Now unplug the cable, enable the wireless connection and do the same for the wireless nic. The ip address should be different, but everything else should be the same. Let me know what you find.
This shouldn't really be any problem simply use a short "Uplink" ethernet cable to join the routers thru the uplink port, or any port really, and that way ya should be able to wifi and access the net, set ya router that connects to the net for DCHP and disable that setting in the Wifi router and ya should be good to go?
You need to disable the DHCP server on your "slave" wireless router ( the di-524 ). In D-link routers this might be called configuring it to be an "Access point".
When this happens, connecting to the second wireless router should cause your computer to obtain an IP address which is in the range of the first router (that is to say, it will use the first router's dhcp server).
You should be able have your laptop connect with an automatic IP address and have it work.
Might I suggest that you reset the router to its default configuration by pressing and holding the reset button until it reboots. This way you will be dealing with the default configuration. Then try to use it. Remember the default login ID is admin and the password is Password or admin.
Lets hope this helps
what may be happening is the wireless pc as it was; needs the dns and ip address flushing, also the pc you connected the router to as you must have conflicting ip addreses
Click start run then type ipconfig /flushdns.
You should ensure that the router is set to enable DHCP to assign ip addreses and make sure your'e network cards on all pc's are set to obtain ip address automaticaly in the TCP/IP properties.
Restart the pcs and type 192.168.0.1 in your web browser and get into your router setings and check in the DHCP section that all pc's have been given an ip address.
If all fails you may need to reset the router
