DI-704P unit power problem?

Hello, I don't know if it's a power problem or a connection problem. Every time my internet drops out I go to the power pack of the hub that is connected to the power point and it is extremely hot. So then I unplug and cool it a little and then connect to power point again the internet works fine. Is this a power pack over heating problem? Or is this internet connection problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much for your time.....

Re: DI-704P unit power problem?

Unplugging the router resets it, I don't realy think its a power problem. The power pack contains a transformer that steps down (reduces) the power from 115V down to the 12V (or so, I don't really recall any more) the router uses. The byproduct is heat which can range from warm to uncomfortable to the touch. It?s not uncommon to have to reset your router and/or cable modem on some basis. At one time I had a DI-704 and had to reset it on a weekly basis to reestablish my Internet connection. At the time I thought it was my router but later it turned out to be a problem with my access provider supplied modem. How often are you having to power down the router? Who provides your access?

I powered off my dlink DI 704P and internet modem by turning off switch on surge suppressor (which I have do several times) and just powered back up after 3 days and my dlink will not come back up no...

1. if you have a power adapter connected to this router it may have burn out when restoring power several times in the way you shut down.
2. When visiting the manufacturer website and researching your unit I found that the unit is "discontinued" and there is no other support for it.
3. I suggest that a new router be purchase with update technology to get the most from your internet experience.

I hope this helps. Have a great day!

D-Link DI-704P as wireless

Yes, you have to. The router model mentioned is not a wireless router, not unless you have other network device there that transmits wireless connection such as a wireless access point.

Add di-704p to an existing network

What you want to do should be quite easy:

1. Just connect one of the LAN ports of the DI-704P to a LAN port of your WRT54G. Try using a standard network cable. If the port status lights does not turn on on both sides when you connect the cable, use a "crossover" cable. Important: leave the DI-704P WAN port empty.

2. Disable the DHCP server on your DI-704P, your WRT54G will be the DHCP server.

3. Assign a static IP address to you DI-704P, different from your WRT54G. Example, if your WRT54G has, you may assign to your DI-704P. Make sure that the IP address you assign is outside the DHCP range configured in your WRT54G and that the subnet mask is identical on both.
You will then be able to use your print server from any wired and wireless computer and the remaining LAN ports both on the WRT54G and DI-704P.

Problem on connecting the internet

Why are you using a hub? With a router, you can connect direct to the client. Eliminate the hub and see if that helps. Be sure to follow all the manufacturer's instructions for setup.

Sympatico & DLink DI-704P

It usually is simple, and hopefully the answer is as well. If you haven?t already done so unplug the modem and the router. Wait for a few seconds and then plug the modem in followed by the router. Reboot your PC and try the Internet again. If it still doesn?t work then I would try doing a hard reset of your router and reconfigure using the setup process outlined by the manufacturer. If that still doesn?t work let us know and we?ll continue ?.
