Question about D-Link DI 514 Wireless Router (DI-514)

1 Answer

Hi, I am having problems with my D-Link wireless router. It seems to keep losing its connection - about once an hour. When I unplug everything and restart it works.  It is connected to a TOPCOM 5 port Ethernet at one end which in turn is connected to a Motorola Modem.  Both my iMac and the printer work with the wireless connection as well as several laptops. Most annoying is the fact that my mail (Entourage) cannot send and receive and I need to use the Network troubleshooter to reconnect once per hour. Can you help?

Missed a bit, sorry! start internet explorer (blue e) in the address bar type 192.168.1.1 and press enter the new screen, type in the password to enter the set jup (as it says, admin is the default) click setup wizard, put a dot in pppoa (I'm assuming you're in the UK) click next, put in your user name and password, vpi/vcn 0 and 38 and encapsulation VC MUX, click next put channel to 11, choose an ssid (i leave mine at 3Com), click next, check all the data is correct then click on apply.Now to set up the encryption start internet explorer (blue e) in the address bar type 192.168.1.1 and press enter in the new screen, type in the password to enter the set jup (as it says, admin is the default) click wireless settings on the left hand side of the screen, click setup wizard select wpa-psk from the drop down box where it says pre-shared key, type in a MEMORABLE password and then click apply. Now you will lose your wireless signal. Panic ye not! Click on the smatt TV in the lower right hand side of the screen (this is called the sys-tray) you will now see that the wireless icon which looks a bit like a telly with 3 yellow arcs coming out of it's right hand side has a red cross on it. Click it once, click view wireless networks and then on the new screen click refresh network list. You will after a few seconds see your network -click on it and then on connect. A new box will come up asking you for the network key aka password. Enter the memorable password you have just forgotten in the upper and lower boxes and press enter. Et voila! you now have an encrypted wireless network and you can only get onto it if you know the memorable password!

I have a mac, a printer and an ipad2 connected to my wireless network. lately i have been losing my internet connection a few times an hour all day long.. I have no idea what is wrong, when i unplug it and...


I had the same problem, and my issue was the printer. Every time i connected the printer using a wireless scan on the printer to connect to the router, it would kick my laptop out. Try disconnecting the printer and rebooting the router(Do this first, start it up and then do the next step with the printer off if you're still having problems). Do a factory reset on the router as well, but you have to set everything up again(i did that a couple of times). Hold reset button for ten seconds then let it reboot if you want to go that route. Once you reboot the router(try the simple boot first), leave the printer off and try and run your mac and ipad2 for a couple of hours and see if they stay connected and there are no interruptions. If they still do the same, then do a factory reset like noted above and try again. If they work ok, then the printer is conflicting with your other devices. The way i fixed mine was to connect my printer to the router using the manual method. You have to go to the dlink administrator login, go to setup, click wireless settings, then click add wireless device with WPS, click on manual, then go to your printer and go to wireless settings, click on manaul connection and it should give you a pin number. Now hit start scan on dlink page and then go on wireless printer and have them pair up. It's a lot, but it worked for me and hopefully it works for you. good luck

It sounds like the router needs the firmware updated, everything I have seen with those issues points to a firmware upgrade. The steps are many so the best way is to follow the manufacturer's step-by-step instructions. I have attached a link below

Keep losing connectivity


This is usually caused by the setup of the TCP/IP properties, most people do not have static IP addressing, so open the Wireless Connetion Properties window, find the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and select it then select the properties button to bring up another window showing the properties for this, select the "Obtain an IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically", OK out of these dialogs and that should take care of it.

A shot in the dark. Do your lap tops have elevated heat relief? In other words a stand to elevate the laptops to stop overheating??
If the pc is okay, perhaps the laptops are getting hot??

Intermittent connectivity


Check to see if you are losing the DSL or Internet light on the modem when you lose your onnection. If so, then check with your IP provider, that may be the problem.
