Question about D-Link Dlink DI-514 Air Wireless 2.4 GHz Router (A0177337)
Hi have an older dlink di-514 that I want to use with an Actiontec GT701 modem that I get my Qwest broadband through to hardwire my new computer to the old one long enough to transfer files.
Can I do this?
Believe it or not, Actiontec modems from Qwest are setup as a router already (even though ports are missing from it). You should use a switch instead of another router. Otherwise you will have to configure the DI-514 to act as a switch rather than a router. This is done by assigning a new starting IP address into your DI-514. By default both routers use 192.168.0.1 as the default. You will have to plug the DI-514 seperately into a computer (to take it off the network) and assign a new starting IP address for the DI-514 such as 10.150.1.1 for example. Then you will be able to get it work. I would strongly recommend using a switch instead and turn the wireless on the modem itself (this is why the modem is the router). It will save you some headaches if the power goes out.
