D-LINK DI-514 LAN Ports not working

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?

    Please read the original problem completely before giving an answer. I have already done everything you said to configure the router as an access point. As I said, the wireless works fine. The LAN ports are dead. The WAN port works fine also, though in my case, I don't need it. I just wanted to know if there was some way to make the LAN ports work. I'll just have to consider this device dead.

  1. Connect a cable from your PC to one of the four plugs. Not the WAN port.
  2. Setup the wireless the way you want it.
  3. Then give this router a different IP, like 192.168.0.2
  4. Then you have to disable the DHCP server in the router (keep in mind now you have to set your desktop or laptop that is conencted to it to a static IP to still communicate with the router)
  5. Once this is done just plug you existing network into one of the four ports. Not the WAN port.
  6. It will now act as a wirelessa access point.
Althoug this is doable it is not recommended as this router is a pile of **** and the wireless is crappy.

I would suggest a dedicated wireless access point.

    I would consider the lan ports dead. As I said, this router is of terrible quality. I would buy a dedicated accesspoint.

Hi I would like to ask, i have the Netgear DG834g- v4 and i want to connect it with my D-link DI-514 like access point. They have the same ip adress 192.168.0.1 so i can't fix D-Link. Any idea? Thanks


You need to set the NetGear as a Access point/Repeater (if possible). You have to type in the MAC address of the D-link into the Netgear , so that the router will know where to pick up the signal. Here are the manuals to both units.

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

3. restart your computer

4. Type http://192.168.0.1 in your browser's URL interface.

No power led, wlan led blinking


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.

How to connect wireless router to adsl router?


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.
