Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router
Starting from completely disconnected router.
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.
Disconnect everything from router.
Plug in power source only.
Same result as 1st attempt..
Set up router as I did in 1st attempt with computer and internet.
Plug in power.
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?
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.
