Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router

1 Answer

D-Link DI-534 Starting up problems

Starting from completely disconnected router.

1st Attempt:
I plug in internet and desktop computer.
Connect power to router.
All lights are on except Status and WLAN.
I wait approx. 5 mins and nothing happens.
LAN connection states that LAN cable is unplugged, swapped cables and connections and no results.

2nd Attempt:
Disconnect everything from router.
Plug in power source only.
Same result as 1st attempt..

3rd Attempt:
Set up router as I did in 1st attempt with computer and internet.
Plug in power.
Same result.
Reset the router.
All lights clear.
Power light comes on about 2 seconds after reseting with WAN and 1st jack light.
Status light has a steady 1 pulse per second starting about 5 seconds after resetting.
After Status Light starts pulsing, The port that the LAN cable is connected to will start flickering about every 10 seconds with activity but will not connect completely.
Unable to access the router, and LAN connection saying limited or no conductivity, when I try to repair it states unable to renew IP address.
WAN sight shows activity like expected, almost constant flickering with brief pauses of constantly being lit (similar with other routers I've had that have worked normally).
I have restarted my computer, restarted the router, reset the router, changed cables and connection plugs (Desktop has 2 ethernet cards) and jacks on the router with the exact same responses.

Is there anything else i can do or am i completely screwed on this one?

    I was unable to update the firmware as in I cannot even access the router at all (unable to assign IP address and get cannot display page when I put in the router IP on Internet Explorer). I also do not know how to reflash the router, but im willing to try anything at this point.

Try resetting the router . Press the reset button for 10 seconds and after 10 seconds unplug the power cable but continue pressing the reset button for another 30 seconds after 30 seconds plug in back the power cable and continue pressing the reset button for 10 seconds and release it after 10 seconds.

try to open an Internet browser and type in 192.168.0.1 on the address bar. It should give you the DLink page. Once you have that configure your connection.

Modem <-- Ethernet cable --> WAN port on router

LAN port #1 on router <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop computer

LAN port #2 on router <-- Ethernet cable --> network-port on laptop computer

If the router has built-in "wireless" capability, then use the desktop computer's connection to the router to "configure" the wireless adapter, i.e., pick an SSID, and establish a password, and then your laptop computer can use the SSID/password to connect "wirelessly" to the router.

I have been using my DI-524 for about two years now without problems. I went away on vacation, left my computer and routers running and now when I get home I cannot connect nor see the wireless connection...


When you say your rebooted the modem and router, do you mean you power cycled them both? If you're unfamiliar with power cycling, this the technique:
1) Unplug your main Cable or DSL line from your modem.
2) Unplug the power from the modem.
3) Unplug the power from the router.
4) Wait about 20 seconds.
5) Plug the Cable or DSL line into the modem.
6) Plug the power into the modem.
7) Plug the power into the router.

Make sure that all computers are shut down and completely off. After you have power cycled, reboot the computer(s). If you still do not see the SSID (the name of the network), then someone probably hacked into your router and changed the password. Here's how to overcome that:

1) Unplug the power from the router.
2) Press and hold the Reset button on the router for at least 30 seconds.

3) Plug the power into the router.
4) Open an internet browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.).
5) Type in the IP address of your router. For this router the IP address should be 192.168.0.1
6) You should be at a login window. The User Name is admin and leave the password blank.
7) You should now be in your router's configuration options. You should enable the highest security possible, then change the default User Name and Password to something secure, with letters and numbers.

My information for you router came from this link:

1st: Have you paid your bill?
2nd: Have you power cycled?
Full Power Cycle is as follows:

Turn off all components plugged into the router(Computers, Printers, etc.) Unplug the power from the router. Unplug the data cable(DSL, Coax) going TO the router. Wait aprox. 1 minute. Plug data cable and power cable back into router. Wait about 1 minute. Turn computers back on. Problem Solved?

If not and you're using DSL make sure all DSL filters are in place and that none have come undone. Make sure the phone line is still plugged in. Problem Solved?

If not contact your ISP and ask if they are doing any maintenance in your area that may by effecting your service. Ask them to perform a line test on you. If all else fails ask them to have a technician come out and help solve the issue.

Make sure that every setting in the new laptop matches the settings in the router. If one setting is off, you will not get a connection. It is also possible that the router is set to only allow specific computers to connect to it. If that is the case you will have to add the new laptop to the allowed connections in the wireless settings of the router.

I don't know how to connect my router. please help


If you have DSL or cable internet, disconnect the ethernet cable going from the DSL or cable internet modem to the computer. Disconnect the end of that cable that plugs into the modem. Connect an ethernet cable from your cable or DSL modem to the router where it says something like "modem", "internet", or "in". If the router is a wired router, connect the ethernet cable that is still attached to the computer to any open ethernet port on the router.

Can't connect to default network.


Try to power cycle your router. Unplug the power for 30 seconds then plug it back in. If that doesn't work, try to change the channel of the router. That should do it. If it still not working, there's a problem with wireless adapter's driver. You need to use update one.

Can I piggyback a wireless router onto a hard-wired router?


Yes, you can connect the DI-624 to your exitsing EBR-2310, you just need to connect the a cable from port 4 of the EBR-2310 to the internet/wan port of the DI-624, then after that you can already use now the wireless to your laptop and also the wired router to your desktops.
But I may suggest you to just replace the EBR-2310 with the DI-624 so you will only be using 1 router that can cater your laptop and also your desktop, Just connect the cable from your modem that is conencted now to your EBR-2310 to the internet/wan port of the DI-624 then run the setup CD that should be it.

Hope that helps...........

Got wireless signal but no internet connection


You can try to power cycle your entire network (refresh).
This often happens when you have a large network.
  1. power down ALL Computers and disconnect the desktop from the D-Link Switch.
  2. turn off all SLAVE AP's first.
  3. Turn off the Master AP and disconnect one end of the Ethernet.
  4. Turn off the D-Link Switch and disconnect one end of the Ethernet.
  5. Now, turn off your modem.
Leave them for about 10 to 15 minutes, depending on your urgency.
Turn on and connect all devices in the EXACT order.
  1. Turn on the modem. wait 2 minutes.
  2. Turn on the D-Link Switch and wait 1 minute. Then connect the Ethernet to the MODEM.
  3. Turn on the Master AP and wait 1 minute. Then connect the Ethernet to the D-Link Switch.
  4. Turn ONE of the Slave AP's. Turn on your Laptop. try to connect to the Internet. If successful, Disconnect from the network on the computer and proceed to turn on the rest of the Slave AP's, Laptops, and Desktop. If its NOT successful, power on the Desktop and try to connect to the internet.
  • If the desktop connects to the Internet, Check your D-Link's homepage "192.168.1.1" (default) for any wrong settings. If it does not connect, check your DSL Modem's settings.
If the above does not work, post what you did the day before this happened. Probably something small might have messed with the network.
