Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router
NOT OPEN IN BROSER & THAT PROBLEM I AM NOT CONFIGR
Do you know if DHCP is running on the router? If you have Windows XP, go to Start, Run, type CMD. In the dos box that appears, type ipconfig /all. Your IP address should be in one of the private LAN ranges - for D-Link, it's usually 192.168.0.x, where x designates your unique address in the dotted quad range. If it shows 169.254.x.x, where x can be any number, that means that you are correctly setup as a dynamic IP requester, but the router isn't setup as a DHCP server.
That's probably the case - if so, go to Start, My Network Places, or go to Network settings in the Control Panel. Right-click the Lan Connection and pick properties. Make sure you are running these protocols: Client for Microsoft Networks, File and Printer Sharing, and last but not least, Internet protocol (TCP/IP). Double-click that protocol. Hard code in an IP within the same subnet of your router, which for D-Link routers, it is usually 192.168.0.X, where X is something other than 1. Tab to the subnet mask, it will automatically set the correct dotted quad of 255.255.255.0, then set the Gateway to the router, 192.168.0.1. Go back to the dos box and type in ping 192.168.0.1
It should show replies if that worked. If so, log on to your router, turn on the DHCP server, allocate the number of IPs you want to allow, and save the setting. Go back to your Network Properties and set your PC to Obtain an IP Address and DNS addresses automatically. Save that setting, exit out of the Network Properties dialog box, give a few seconds to see the DHCP server and get a dynamic IP, complete with the DNS settings from the ISP (you'll need to get on the internet). That should get you going. If not, reply back with the IP address(es) that show up in the original ipconfig /all, along with any other information, i.e., there is another router in another part of the building, DHCP is running, but I can't get an address (have you tried a wired connection, just to see if it's the wireless security that's on the router), ect. Good luck!
