Attempting to use an old DI-514 wireless router as an access point. I can connect wirelessly and config the thing, but it can't communicate over the LAN. I even tried just using it as a hub (1 port connected to the network and 1 port connected to a laptop). But the laptop cannot see the network. If I take the network connection out of the D-Link and plug it directly into the laptop, works fine. But get nothing through the D-Link. The D-Link port lights illuminate whenever a network connection is plugged into them so it's at least recognizing that it has a connection. Are the LAN ports somehow disabled? Anyway to get them to work?

It would be easier if both units were of the same MFG.
One thing you can do, if you need connectivity in another part of the home/office. You can change the LAN IP of one of the units to 192.168.2.1 and connect the WAN of the unit to a port on the other. Essentially you would have 2 networks :192.168.01.and 192.168.2.1

- Make sure that your computer is connected to the DI-514 router on LAN ports - Access the Internet explorer on the Web address type 192.168.0.1 - Login as admin without a password - Click on home - Open the wireless tab - Look for security *this the section that you can set the password or to locate the WPA key.
1. Connect a pc to the router using a cable (wireless won't work) 2. Open a browser and type in: 192.168.0.1 3. Login with username: admin password: (blank) 4. Browse around the menus until you find a setting similar to "use as access point" and select it. 5. Save settings and log out. 6. Connect a cable from a port on your main router to this router's internet/wan port.
well, what you could try is unplugging the power source from the cable modem, and the router. wait about 1 minute. then plug everything back in and wait.
i remember having this problem as well, but i think the problem with me was that my wireless computer was too far away from the wireless router, not saying that your too far or not, but that what i had, so i just pitched the wireless adapter, and created an ethernet connection. just sharing my experience.
You're wanting to connect the directly connect the DI-514 to the ASDL modem to give you a wireless network, right? If so here's what you do: Connect an ethernet line from the modem to the Internet/Wan port of your DI-514 and then you're set. I recommend you then follow the directions in the manual to setup wireless security.
If you're wanting to have your DI-514 wirelessly connect to the ASDL modem, then connect your PC to one of the LAN ports of the DI-514 and open the administrative web interface (usually located at http://192.168.0.1) and go to the wireless section and select "Wireless Client" and input the MAC of the ASDL modem's wireless interface (you can find this on the administration web interface of the ASDL modem) and you should be good to go.
