Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router

1 Answer

Not able to hook this router up

Does anyone have step by step instructions as to how I can fix my router? I have a d-link DI-524 and it was used by my sister but she unhooked it from her computer and gave it to me. I have already held down the reset button and rest it but now I don't know what to do. I can't get online to look up help when the router is inbetween the modem and the computer. I can't dial into the router either because I don't know the address. Am I even on the right track?

On the right track
connect modem to router WAN port
connect pc to modem LAN port by cable
DO NOT use wireless to configure router
http://192.168.0.1 is the address of the router
the admin name is 'admin' no quotes
the password is blank, not the word 'blank' a blank screen.. unless your sister changed it
read the online help
set an admin password
set a WEP encryption password

after config router can use wireless if prefer
NEVER make config changes by wireless

I have a d-link model DI-524 that stopped working for my laptop I try to connect but is saying it cannot recognize the dns


Let's try to first fully reset your router to factory settings to see if we can get rid of any bad settings that may be causing issues. I borrowed all of the following from the technicallyeasy.net walkthroughs already written about:
"fcb6ce0.gif
To reset your router, use the following steps:
  1. Press the reset button for 10 seconds. You can use a small object, such as a paper clip to hold down the button.
  2. Do not power off the unit while the router is being reset.
    The unit should now reboot, and once the WLAN light stops blinking the router should be reset.
  3. (Added by me) Plug your laptop directly into one of the ethernet ports on the back of the router with a standard CAT5e or CAT6 patch cable
  4. Open up your Web browser and enter 192.168.0.1 in the address bar.
  5. For the login, enter admin as the ID and leave the password blank.
The router has now been reset. Follow the steps in Securing D-Link DI-524 Wireless Router to secure your router.

SummaryThis post has provided the instructions you can use to reset your D-Link DI-524 wireless router. If you are having problems with your router, try reseting the router to the factory defaults, and then make the changes again and see if the router starts working."

Need passphrase from D-Link router DI-524


1. if the default login never been modified b4, u can hook a network cable to the router, type "192.168.0.1" to enter the router config. Once inside, u can edit the password or disable it.
*U may prompt for username (admin) and passsword(empty).

2. If the default login has been modified and u r not able to enter the router config, u can just reset the router by inserting a pin to the small hole to get back the factory default settings. Then u can perform above step again to reconfigure your wireless router.

DI-524 status problem


Did this happen after a firmware upgrade? If so, this link may help:

http://borgetech.blogspot.com/2007/09/d-link-di-524-revision-b4-status-light.html

Apparently there's a utility which will force firmware to load on the router. The steps are a bit technical, though.

If that doesn't work, the router is probably toast. Time for a new one.
