I now have a new DSL internet provider. If I plug my DI-514 in off my Speedstream 5861 router, I get about 5 minutes of internet to the main computer and my laptop which is both hardwired and wireless and then I get no reading to each computer. When I just go to the main computer and laptop off the main modem everything is fine. I already reset my router but that is not the issue.

Re: Short connection and then no connection
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....

Check the WAN light on the router -- if it is not lit, then your router is not connected correctly to your cable-modem or DSL-modem.
Start Internet Explorer, and access the web-server "built-in" to the router. Access the "settings" page, and check the "WAN" settings, to ensure that the router has received an IP-address from your Internet Service Provider.
I presume you are attempting to access your router by typing the numeric address (e.g., 192.168.1.1) into your browser.
The address you are typing into your browser is apparently the address of your DSL modem, not your wireless router. This address may be subtly different, e.g., 192.168.0.1.
I suggest you pull up the window that shows your computer's network address, its netmask, and its server address. The server address is the one you need to type into your browser.
If this still gets you your DSL modem, it could be that you have configured your router to provide the same range of addresses on its LAN side as your DSL modem provides on your router's WAN side. This is an unworkable configuration. You will need to disconnect the DSL modem from the router so that you talk ONLY to the router, and change its configuration to use a different address range.
It's hard to get more specific without knowing what addresses you are using or how your network is set up. The above is a general overview of what you need to do to solve this problem.
Your router probably needs a firmware upgrade to accommodate the throughput from the ISP server. 1. check with your provider to see if you have issue with your cable or DSL line. Sometime if it is a DSL line it is the drop to your house , ( rodent chews in the line; rain or moisture, or dangling and not secured. 2.Cordless phones to close to the router will cause disconnection. 3. A firewall setting in an anti virus software can cause disconnect if not properly configured. 4. channell selection will cause disconnect on some older router such as yours and an new router is the only remedy because the router has come what is called " end- fo -life " and the manufacturer no longer support the router because of new router technology implemented.
Do you have Internet connection before you installed the Dlink router? Do you have cable or DSL? If you have DSL make sure you have the username and password from your Internet service provider because you need to enter those information when you run the set up wizard. You need to connect your computer to the LAN port of the router. Turn off computer and router, turn on router first then turn on the computer. Run the set up wizard again.
If you have DSL or cable internet, disconnect the ethernet cable going from the DSL or cable internet modem to the computer. Disconnect the end of that cable that plugs into the modem. Connect an ethernet cable from your cable or DSL modem to the router where it says something like "modem", "internet", or "in". If the router is a wired router, connect the ethernet cable that is still attached to the computer to any open ethernet port on the router.
First check if your modem is properly with router and if your computer is properly connected with the right port in the router. You must configure it to work with your Internet Provider. For Cable company you need to configure the router as Dynamic IP and for DSL users it needs to be configured as PPPoE connection.
I think wat ya need to do is completely set it all up again, right from the start.. I enclose a link for a manual & the other one is for the "Driver".
Your "Provider" will have a different setup and address etc... indeed maybe they will have setup software and logon details on their web site, I suggest ya check that.
