Question about D-Link DI 514 Wireless Router (DI-514)
I have recently bought a Micradigital 802.11g ADSL modem with wireless router. I have been using a normal router with a cable going to my laptop (windows XP) and now I want to make it wireless. I have read through the user manual that came with the wireless router and don't know how to configure it to my laptop. I even tried getting on to the internet using the wires provided but it won't even let me do that. I plugged the wireless router in and attached all the wires. I called my internet provider and was given PPPOA, VPI&VCI and MTU settings which I am not sure what I am supposed to do with. Surely there must be an easy way to set the router up. Can anyone help please?
I am not sure if its the same config instruction with linksys modems...but usually you can configure it using the setup wizard or manually.
The setup wizard can be found in the installation CD when you bought the modem/router. just insert the CD and follow the instructions given at the screen.
For manual configuration...open your internet browser (IE or firefox) then type http://192.168.1.1 (or check the manual for the correct local ip of your modem) you will see the configuration page in the browser in were you will put the username, password, PPPOA, VPI...etc.
reply back if you need further info. hope this helps.

Well normally, you need not contact ISP as the router will pick it up automatically. If it does not then you need to contact your ISP to get the values. Perform the below steps to configure the router:
1. Connect the cable/phone line coming from Internet Service Provider to the WAN port of the router(isolated port). 2. Connect the computer to the router using any one of the 4 available ports. 3. Open the browser(Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox). 4. Access the router (usually http://192.168.0.1). 5. Login to the router (Username = admin Password = password unless you have changed it). 6. Click 'setup wizard'(at the top of list) from left menu. 7. Select yes and click next. 8. It should give you a "PPPoA Detected" and then click next. 9. Enter the login and Password of ISP click apply. 10. Once the settings are updated click on 'router Status' and click on 'connection status' button(at the bottom of the page). 11. Click on connect button. 12. Connecting to server should show 'connected'. 13. If you receive 'CHAP authentication failed', close the 'connection status' window and click on 'Basic settings'. Check the login and password for ISP and apply the setting again. 14. Open up another browser window and try to access internet.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.
