Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router

D-Link DIR-628 router, i've lost internet connection to the PC!

Hi, here's the situation. i have a PC and modem upstairs in a two story home. Downstairs i have a playstation 3, that i've wanted to get an internet connection on for a while. I've never had any problems with the internet connection on the PC. Yesterday i bought the DIR-628 router and set it up upstairs. After battling with the router and some DNS error problems, i finally was able to get a connection on the ps3. Now upstairs, i can't browse the internet at all because it tells me there isn't a connection! I'm not sure if it's just my PC not having wireless capabilities or what, but i'm very frustrated. In order to use the internet as I am now, i have to unplug the internet cable that runs from the PC to the router, into the modem, and i lose the connection downstairs. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. =D

    Okay, well is there any way i can have an internet connection on the computer right by it, without a direct wire connection?

  • bout2blow Nov 17, 2008

    That may be what i have to do. They don't seem to be TOO expensive. If i continue to switch the internet cable back and forth from the router and the modem, can i keep the ps3 connection the same?

    Thanks for your help =D

    Alright fantastic. I'm still not sure why my PC won't get a wireless connection... But i suppose i'll pick up a USB sometime. Thanks alot!

    I have the same problem. I cannot connect to the internet through my DIR-628 router, however when I unplug the cables and plug my PC directly into the modem, it seems to work fine. Wireless connection on other devices so far seems to be be fine (assuming, of course, I route the modem through the router first, and then my PC can't connect).

You would be best to buy a wireless router with a built in modem, this would be much easier for you to setup and manage

    if the ps3 has a connection to the internet using the router then u have set it up correctly, perhaps get a wireless usb adaptor for the pc to connect to it wirelessly?

  • Stephan3112 Nov 17, 2008

    yeh, but u will only be able to use one connection at a time, i.e. ps3 or pc, but yes its fine to do that

Lost cd rom to install dlink dir-628, how do i obtain the software to reinstall it?

You do not have to use the cd. :

Shutdown your PC. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line. This is if you have a cable service provider. If you have DSL, the router needs to be configured with PPOe.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Happy New Year!

Thanks, Joe
