Problems with speed and local ftp on D-LINK DI-524

Hi, I have DI-524 installed to share my cable modem connection to internet. In my local networks there are 2 PC's and one laptop. Laptop and one PC works well, connection speed is as good as without the router but the second PC has terryfing slowed down. But the bigger problem is that it was my local ftp server (OpenSuSE 10.2 with latest patches) - now with router I can't download anything from it. I get "stalled" status even trying only to list the remote directory. When I connect the ftp to any other computer directly, everything works fine. This PC has 3 network cards (it used to work as a gateway) and on the DI-524's DHCP LEASE LIST I've it 3 times with different IP's and MAC's (beacuse I've tried all of them, thinking something's wrong with network cards) but with the same network name. I've also noticed that when I try to download ftp via router both computers (downloader and ftp), on the 'Active Sessions' in router management site, are listed only on the UDP to the DNS from my ISP.

Re: Problems with speed and local ftp on D-LINK DI-524

You may have to open the port that opensuse uses in your routers settings, this will probably be called something similair to virtual servers or within the firewall settings, you will have to enter the port number that the programme uses and allocate the number against the ip address of the pc that is connecting. The fact that you have 3 cards in one pc may confuse matters for the router,so probably dissabling two of them may prove to be another solution to the problem

I have no connection to the internet going through the wireless or the wired portion of my d-link DI-524 router ,I only have a local connection . Is this repairable or is the router FRIED and needs to be...

try rebooting your cable modem by unplugging it then after 15 seconds plug it back in. let it come up, then reboot your router and wait til it comes up. If it still doesn't connect then there may be an issue with the router. I'm guessing the cable modem is OK since you were able to post here. I was going to tell you to hard wire your computer to the cable modem as well.

Dlink router is not connecting to the internet

Check the lights on the router to make sure both out going and incoming are on.

Manual link below in case that helps

If not both on contact broadband supplier as IP for router may have been "altered" and will need resetting their end.

Not unknown for an outage to be proceeded by a "spike" which can blow unprotected items.

After replacing Cable Modem, D-Link DI-524 Wireless will not work

Did you call Comcast and give them the new MAC address of the Motorola SB5101 SURFboard cable modem? I'm surpised it works at all without doing this first. This is the hardware address of your modem so the world can see you, no one in the world has the same MAC address, they are all different. It's on a sticker on the modem.

Connecting Laptop wireless and Desktop wired to the router

Do you need to see the desktop or just share folders from each other? If the latter then you need to do the following:

Use Windows Explorer and select a folder you want to share. Right click and select sharing and security.

On the sharing tab click on Share this folder. Enter a share name ( I like to enter the PC name _folder name; Rick1_Downloads)

Click on Permissions. If your ok with everyone using the PC's and Laptops having access then highlight Everyone and click on Full Control.

Do this on each PC and Laptop.

That should be it or darned near close.

Cannot connect to internet through DI-524

After you've rebooted your wireless router...make sure you reboot the cable-company (or DSL) modem while the router is connected to it and on. The modem seems to recognize the router properly only in this way.

Simply unplug the power to the cable-modem and plug it in again.
If the cable-modem has a battery back-up you'll want to remove that as well.

Connect to wireless D-Link and Westell6100

I am assuming that you have a functional LAN cable connecting the Westell and the DI 524, right? If you are unsure, replace it with a cable you know is good.

If the 524 is turned on downstream of the Westell modem, it should find what it wants. You may try rebooting the Westell and seeing if the 524 finds it, and you maybe should reboot the 524.

Sometimes, when the world gets jiggered up I have to work pretty hard to get my DI-524 resync'd to my DSL modem.
