Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router

1 Answer

Di-524 dlink; wireless laptop connects but no internet or network

I have a di-524 dlink router hooked up to a cable modem. My wife's laptop connects fine to it via wireless, wireless print server connects fine, iphone connects fine, HOWEVER my dell laptop will connect and show that an IP address has been assigned and the wireless network connect looks fine. The problem though is it can not connect to the internet or ping any other device on the network. Not even able to reach the router address at 192.168.0.1. Dell Laptop wireless connection works fine at any other location. On rare occasion after I reboot router and computer, I can get internet connection for a few minutes, but then is lost even though all indications seem to show I still have a strong connection to the wireless router. If I plug directly into router with the Dell I can get internet connection.

    I have a Dell Latitude D505. Spec say it supports 802.11g. The dell use to connect fine. About a month ago I updated to the current firmware for the Dlink router because my Wife's Toshiba running Vista would not stay connect more than 1 or 2 days without rebooting the router. Since running the firmware update my wife's computer has not lost connection. Also all other devices stated above seem to work better with router after update. I do have WEP enabled and Dell has asked and confirmed that correct password was given. Network status on Dell shows to be connected. Status is "associated". Strength is "excellent". IP address is 192.168.0.1xx. The Speed tends to report 1Mbps when this occurs, typically it will report 18 to 36Mbps for the few minutes it does work.



    The Dell wireless works fine at office, hotels, airports, etc.



    Thanks.

    Thanks for the suggestion Teis, but it seems odd that the dell does not work with the Dlink router at home, but works fine everywhere else. Also that the dlink router at home works fine with my wife's computer and other devices in the house.



    I've tried different channel settings. forced it to only connect at "g". updated driver on the dell. updated firmware in the Dlink. At best, I can maintain a connection for about 2-5 minutes after I delete the wireless connection and re-establish connection after typing in WEP value again.

SOURCE: DI-524 status led not blinking

Here are the instructions

  1. Make sure that you have a copy of the latest firmware and it has an *.exe file with it. Because the router's configuration page won't be available, you'll be needing the exe to some sort of force the firmware upgrade procedure.
  2. Unplug everything attached to your router except the power cable and LAN cable connected to your pc.
  3. Configure your TCP/IP with this info: IP:192.168.123.253, Default mask:255.255.255.0, Default Gateway:192.168.123.254 and DNS Server:192.168.123.254 (Use only 1 DNS server). Save this new configuration and reboot your pc.
  4. Unplug the power cable to your router as the pc reboots. When everything is up and running, plug the power cable. The status led will be flashing like crazy. It's normal.
  5. Use the exe file to upgrade your firmware. Make sure that the utility file (exe file) is able to recognize your router or else you won't be able to do a firmware upgrade. Now this may take a while, keep pressing the Refresh button to recognize your router. Once recognized you would see there 192.168.0.1 crash. Once you have this, you can now press the upgrade button.
  6. Wait for a while until the unit finishes the upgrade and once done, I think you have recovered the life of your router from the pits of hell. Hahahaha.
  7. You can now unplug the power of the router and restart your pc, see if everything is doing fine.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 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.

ensure that the electrical plug is intact, if you saw no led light lit at all on all indicator check the adaptor itself, if you have a tester you can try to test the end connector to see if there is a DC power line that is coming out.
if not either the adaptor is defective nor the reouter itself is burned out

I just conected my DI-524 with a new cable modem


The first question is whether your change of service provider really has any connection with your new lack of range. If your new cable modem contains a wireless router, it's possible it is interfering with your old router. You only need one, so in that case you should remove your DLink and configure your wireless cable router to your satisfaction. Otherwise, you may have coincidentally picked up a new source of interference; you may want to change the channel on your DLink router to see if that improves your range. The third possibility is that your DLink radio is going sour with age -- it happens -- and may simply need replacement.

Ethernet connection of DI-524 does not work


You have to make the Ip changes on the laptop not on the modem.
You said you have internet acces on one computer. Then use that computer to find out the exact IP address used by the modem.
On the laptop use the exact same numbers, (IP, Sub mask, Gateway, Primary DNS)
and chek if it works.
If you want to have both computers on the Internet, simply change the last number on the IP address ONLY.

Cant connect my laptop wirelessly...


Try to reconfigure your wireless network on your DI-524.

To access the configuration page of your router by Default type in on the address bar 192.168.0.1. On the login page by default the Username is admin and leave the Password blank.

If inside the the configuration page of the router

>Click Home
> Click on WIRELESS located on the left side and you will have the wireless setting of your network
> Change the wireless network name
> Under security choose either WEP or WPA -PSK for this type of router.
> Type in your new network key (also know as Passphrase of Key1).

For WEP use 0 to 9 Number or A to F character and it should be exactly 10 characters.
For WPA-PSK you can use alpha numeric from 0 to 9 and from A to Z. The minimun character would be 8.

> Click on apply
> Click on continue.
Try accessing your wireless network first using your wireless computer. If you are connected to your wireless network try connecting to the Internet.

Connecting with internet


Yes, that is possible since you have a wireless router. Router can share internet connection. Go to this link this will help you setup the wireless connection (secure it if you want)

http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/wireless/Dlink/DI-524/wireless.htm then on the very bottom there is an option how to Configure Windows XP to connect to your wireless network.

I suggest this because it would be better if there is encryption on the network so people wont be able to access your internet for free (unless you give them the security key)

Hi there!

Let me try and help you out.

Please describe your cable connections from the modem going to the router. What specific port from the modem goes into the Dlink router?

DI-524 wireless router as wireless switch


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.
