Question about D-Link DI 514 Wireless Router (DI-514)

Disable wireless function

I now have wired network outlets throughout the house and no longer need the wireless function - which will increase security. Is there a simple way to disable only the wireless function on the D-Link DI-514? All help gratefully appreciated.

    Many thanks. Sorry to be a little slow here, but which username and password are we talking about? Microsoft or D-Link? I don't use a password for computer access, and I can't (so far) find one I used for D-Link set-up. Thanks again. Steve

Hi!

Disable SSID Broadcast Disable wireless function - print.gif Please visit http://support.dlink.com/faq/view.asp?prod_id=1196 for complete FAQ.

Step 1 Open your Internet browser and type the IP address of the router in the address bar. The default IP address is 192.168.0.1. At the login, enter your username (admin) and password (default password is blank).

Step 2 Click on the Advanced tab at the top of the configuration page and then click the Performance button on the left side.

Step 3 At the bottom of the Performance page, click on Disable next to the SSID Broadcast field.

Step 4 Click on Apply. Wait about 15 seconds to allow the router to save the changes and then click on Continue.

I hope that helps!

Good luck and have a nice day!

    Hi!

    The username and password will be for the DLink router. By default (if you did not set any username and password when you setup the router for the first time) the username is admin , and the password leave it blank. You will be ask for a username and password once you try to accesshttp://192.168.0.1 .

    Now, if it's not accepting the default username and password, you may have set a username/password the first time you setup the router (if you used the CD for the router, it will always ask you to setup a password). What you can do is to think of any password that you may have used (try your usual passwords). But always type admin as the username.

    I hope that helps.

What is the function of the red WAN socket on the back of my BT Homehub 5?


The red socket on the back of the HomeHub5 is to connect the Hub to an Openreach modem and thus provide a network facility for the whole house, wireless or via ethernet cable. Since the Homehuh 5 has the modem built in anyway it seems a bit redundant unless you have an RJ45 (ethernet) plug connecting to your telephone line rather than the more usual similar but slightly smaller RJ11 plug which goes in the grey socket.
By the way I thank you for your testimonial and could find no other way to answer it than answering this former question of yours! Maybe I'll find a better way later on !
Anyway all you need to connect your Netgear is to use an ethernet cable from one of the yellow ports on the HomeHub and then configure the Netgear as necessary to act as a wireless access point, or wired router. The HomeHub5 is however quite a good wireless access point working at both 2.4Ghz and 5GHz bands to give you the best speed, as well as the network ports (yellow) on the back.

I have a windows 8 gateway laptop(NE71B Series) and its seems as if my wifi switch is disable. Anyone with a bit of advice on how to resolve this problem would be very helpful.


Recently had a coworker bring me a Gateway NE71B laptop.
Complaint: No wireless even using a VZW 4GLTE hotspot.
Observations:
; All drivers and devices are functional with no errors or conflicts.
; Wireless adapter has power and is not in Airplane mode.
; No wireless networks are visible even though there are normally as many as 12 networks available within the area.
; Wired Ethernet adapter works without issues.
Solution:
Turns out the BIOS was v2.05. After updating the BIOS to v2.13, wireless connectivity is functional. All locally available wireless networks (SSIDs) are visible.

Notes of caution:
; A failed BIOS update will invalidate your warranty per Gateway chat support rep.
; Ensure you have a fully charged battery before updating the BIOS.
; Ensure your AC adapter is plugged in and functional prior to starting the BIOS updater.

I have wired cat5 outlets all over my house. What do I need to send audio off of my PC throughout the house?


You can "pipe' music through your computer via Windows Media Player. You will need a computer where ever you want to send the music to. For example, your music is located on a hard disk in the Den and you want music in the Rec room. Put a computer in the Rec room, open WMP on that computer and load the files across your network.

If you want to get real fancy, connect your stereo amp to the out put of your sound device and play your speakers through the stereo using the computer as the aux source. (plug the mini phone jack from the stereo into the stereo headphone outlet where ever it may be on your computer)

The ploblem is In need the solution of wire less network to build in the big house.


I presume you need Internet access in this house using a wireless network.
The best place to locate the wireless router is in a spot centrally located where the radio signals can reach the rooms where the computers are located. The DSL or cable modem/connection would also need to be in this area so it can connect to the wireless router.
If the wireless router is in a multi-storey house and the floor slab and walls are concrete and/or brick, then the radio signals will be impeded and the signal strength to some rooms will be weak.
In such circumstances, it maybe better to install network cables from these rooms to the wireless router, or install wireless access point repeaters to increase wireless coverage.
If you are not sure how to setup and install this network, then I suggest you get help from a computer savy friend or from your computer friendly shop.

Connecting powerline ethernet adapters through orange livebox


Try to eliminate the problem into smaller parts. Try networking the two via the same power outlet via a multiple power board first in the same room. I don't have much experience with these powerline ethernet but i'm sure the configuration of these will be very similar as wireless router / access points and wireless adapter cards. However what I do know is that your power outlets need to be on the same "phase" of your electrical power system, so if you do this test I suggest (from one outlet board) you know the equipment works and your setup procedure works. then try seperating again and if it still doesnt work, check if your power outlets are wired on seperate phases (depends if your house has 3 phase wiring incoming to your home or not). Try another room or another outlet.
