Re: Dlink Di-784

I hope that the solution of "Guest" work for you coz if not, the router is fully busted. Experience has taught me that this type of problem is typical of a lightning strike or at least a power surge in your DSL/WAN connection. In some cases, even the networking (LAN) card(s) of the PC(s) are also affected.

Re: Dlink Di-784

I have the exact same router and the exact same problem, the solution is to unplug all network cables, and plug only in the power cable, let it run for about 15 seconds, and then plug in your WAN + all other network cables. You're going to have to do this everytime for every restart of the router.

You can try to reset your Router by using a pen or a paper click there is a little whole in the back of your router that you can click with a pen. This should restart the modem. If this doesn't work you can hold the reset button but this will restore the router to factory default settings

Lights are solid green: WAN, local network 1,2,3,4

If that is status of the lights on your router there's a big possibility that its already bad and needs a replacement, but you can first try to reset it and check if that will correct the problem
, To reset the router just press and hold the reset button for 30 seconds while the power is ON then after that check if the lights are back to normal if still the same light router is already bad...

No wan light

If no wan light bypass the dlink router and check if ethernet cable connected to wan port is working. Once you are able to go online through modem connect cable to WAN if light does not go on log into oruter and clone mac address and save settings.If doesnt work powercycle router and turn modem on first then router next if doesnt work upload latest firmware.

Dlink di-524 connect to RV042


You need to cascade the Dlink wireless router to your RV042.

Suppose your RV042 has a default IP Address of, and the DLINK IP uses Your Physical connection is from the regular port of the RV042 going to the WAN/Internet Port of the DLink wireless router.

Once you do that, your Dlink router should automatically obtain an IP from the main router. If it did, configure your wireless settings and you should be able to connect via wireless.

This is just one way to cascade your router to another router.

Help with d-link wireless router

try a power cycle. unplug the power from the back of your modem. unplug the power from your router. shut down the computer. Plug the modem in frist wait until lights are normal. Check your cables make sure the modem is plugged into the wan port. then power on your router. wait until lights are normal plug in your laptop with a cat5 cable. start up the laptop see if your able to access the internet with the cable plugged in.

If so great your on line. open ie and goto your router ip address which i think is its in your manual anyway. goto the wireless tab and make sure your wireless is enabled in the dlink router.

If your internet is not working then you need to setup your pppoe connection if your on dsl. and then do the wireless set up. default is usualy the ssid. [

Start your router, and keep and hold pressing on the "reset" until it resets by itself. This will reset the router to defaults. If the lights got back to work normally again, then you are ready to go. you can access your router by directing your browser to Admin as user and blank as password Download this manual to get you going on configuring your router Goodluck

Router not working, help please!

You may may need to configure your D-Link to use your type of internet! Try following the Quick Install Guide which can be found here: The WLAN light doesn't come on probably because you have the wireless disabled, which can be re-enabled once in the configuration for the wireless(in the document mentioned above) If you are having any difficulty following the guide or have folloed the guid and still can't connect, please get back to me regards, babb
