Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router

2 Answers

Can't get wireless connection on new computer.

I have an old computer that connects (wireless) to the internet through my D1-524 router and modem. I got another computer, and I cannot get a wireless connection from the same location as the old computer. When I try to connect, it asks for a network key (either WRP or WEA, if I remember correctly). How do I get such a network key?

It's a DI-524 (Dee-eye). You created the network key, which is a fine thing. If you've lost track of it, you'll have to reset it to something else -- and then program both of your computers to connect with the new key.

You can probably get to the router here:
http://192.168.0.1
If you can log in, you can then click Wireless. Click WPA-PSK.
Pick a passphrase. You can use a sentence, even, something easy to remember, something easy to play with. Write it down and TAPE IT TO THE ROUTER, not over ventilation holes, so you never lose it again.
A good passphrase might be something that includes punctuation and isn't a common expression. You get 63 characters. Something like this might work, to give you an idea:
I hate that I lost the password, but life goes on.
Type it twice, carefully.

Then you'll have to tell both the previously working computer the password, as well as the new one.

And -write that down-. It's not the worst idea to put type everything useful (that http://192.168.0.1 address, your administration username and password, and your wireless password) into a Wordpad document, make the type very small, and print that, cut it out and tape it, being sure not to block any air holes.

Can you help me connect my Zonet Wireless AP Router ZSR2104WE now that I have purchased a new modem (Motorola DSL Modem 3360)?


You must hook these particular items up in a specific sequence. First power down both the modem and the router, only connect the modem to the isp until all appropriate lights on on. Next plug cat 5 to router where it is labeled internet or wan if neither label then to #1. until alights come up on router. Hope this helps.

Connected wireless to router, excellent signal, but unable to connect to internet.


connected to wireless router with excellent signal may not means you are connected to internet. make sure your modem provided by internet service provider has signal! connect your computer to modem directly bypassing router. If you are online that means your internet is functional. Then connect modem to your Linksys router and use your wireless to log on to internet.
Your router wireless signal active and excellent means you are connected to router not necessarily the internet. The modem supplied by your internet service provider with active internet should be connected to you router on WAN port!
good luck!!

You haven't mentioned who is your Internet Service Provider (generally motorola modems are used by cable connections). After connecting the cables properly, you power cycle the modem and the router if this is a cable connection. However, if this is a DSL connection you better contact the ISP and fetch further information. Please contact me again if you need further information.

Make sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem.

The wireless light is not illuminated and i can't get it to work??


This is a sign of an old router/modem. Also, try unplugging all of plugs that connect to the router/modem. Also, is this affecting you in connecting to the internet? if so, I recommend purchasing a new router/modem. They are very cheap now-a-days. :)

It's the modem, not the wireless router that is the problem.
The modem must have the proper account name & password for it to work.

Test:
Connect a computer directly into the modem (without router). The modem has an Ethernet connector. If you can't get Internet by connecting a computer directly to the modem, then you will never get the router to work.
Contact your ISP. They may not give you the account name / password, but instead do a service call to your location.
