DI-524 wireless router no signal missing antenna

I have a DI-524 wireless router that has a signal when it's wired, however it's missing it's antenna so I can't get any wireless signal.  I have a Mac book and my os is 10.4.  My question is where can I find an antenna for this router, and apprx how much will this run me?  Also when there is no antenna connected to the router would it produce a signal at all?  I only ask because I wouldn't want to go out an buy an antenna and find out that the router just isn't producing any signal.  Thanks for your help

You can reboot ALL the devices . Unplug the Modem, remove battery, Unplug the D Link. Install battery in Modem, plug into AC, allow the device to selftest, plug in D Link allow it to self test. Reboot computer. Have you secured the wireless? Changed Channels for better signal? Take a look at this: http://www.microsoft.com/athome/setup/wirelesstips.aspx#fbid=nZTFiYrDLMg

Just purchased new xbox. Xbox live was working fine when hardwired, but computer and xbox will not work thru wireless. It finds the router, but when I try to open the internet or connect to xbox live it...


I had a similar problem a while back with a netgear gateway. All four ethernet ports on the back worked but it wouldn't work with wifi. I had taken it apart and found that the antenna solder point had came loose. If the antenna isn't hooked up it won't send out a signal. Mine broke because it fell off of the back of my tv

DI-524 wired/wireless access point


Just for fun, make the router give out IP addresses starting at 192.168.0.101 forward. Configure the AP at 192.168.0.2 with no DHCP (the host will give out the addresses), a netmask of 255.255.255.0, and a gateway of 192.168.0.1. Now, let the laptop find DHCP, or give it a 192.168.0.x address where x is greater than 2 but less than 101.

How lucky is that?

not without a repeater or maybe outside antenna. then the signal would probally be too low. you are working too far for wirless and thru building walls.

D-Link Airplus di-524 wireless problem


Hello.

The status light is blinking in all dlink models, so that is normal.

The wireless radio issues have 3 possible solutions.

1. This model has a antenna that screws in the bnc socket behind it see if it's well screwed, or substitute it by another if 2 and 3 don't fix it.


2. On the advaced settings of the wireless configuration you have the ratio of radio broadcast from 25% to 100% check to see if it's on 100%, change channel to 11 if neer and 6 if far, make sure you have SSID broadcast enabled.


3. This models allow you to restart the AP unit and the router unit idependently, so it's always good pratice to restart your AP in the tools and system comands menu.


Hope that helps.

Problem using di 524


Ubiman is right - in order to make a router into a repeater, you need a different firmware, which is not available for your model.

Think of it like this: you would need one antenna to receive the signal from the first router, and another antenna to relay the signal to your computer(s). Since your router only has one antenna, this is not possible.

The easiest way to solve this problem is to go and exchange the router into a repeater. That's the device you actually need.

Antenna


You can try your local computer store, they might sell replacements. You can also try eBay as well, try searching "wireless router antenna" in eBay. Most D-Link wireless router antennas work on other D-LInk wireless routers.

Distance from TX to RX possible too great


There are a couple more questions
  1. Is it a removable antenna on the wireless router e.g. 5db or 7db gain. you could just get better antennas to increase signal strength for distance.
  2. E-bay has a linear antenna you assemble with a usb wireless network adapter attached.
