DI-524 does not maintain connection

My DI-524 does not hold a connection for more than 1 hour at a time. Any suggestions on how to fix?

    You could have a setting to say "dial on demand" and "disconnect after being idle for x minutes". Have a look on the router config for these and if there set it to "always on" instead.

    Does the router lose connection with the modem, or the does wireless access point lose connection with the router?

Some ISPs are cutting connection after a set period of idle time to conserve users per router ratio. There are programs to "keep alive" connections (some router have this ability built-in also).

Problem with the D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router: Keeps timing out on wireless and wired (PC) computers. Have had to unplug wireless router and turn modem off, then plug back in and turn modem back...


Connect to router with your browser and:

Check under Tools -> Time to confirm the router is synced to either the PC clock or a time server.
Check under Advanced - Filters (and firewall) to confirm the router is always on
Check under Home -> DHCP to confirm the lease time is set correctly

No power for DI-524


Have you tried the reset feature, small button near the power port.

Hold it down for thirty seconds with the unit unplugged. If that doesn't work you may need to buy a new router as something may have failed some time ago and just not been noticed until it was turned off.

Try the reset, but I suspect whatever killed your modem likely killed the router at the same time.

Hope this Helps FixYa,

Chris

DI-524 status problem


Did this happen after a firmware upgrade? If so, this link may help:

http://borgetech.blogspot.com/2007/09/d-link-di-524-revision-b4-status-light.html

Apparently there's a utility which will force firmware to load on the router. The steps are a bit technical, though.

If that doesn't work, the router is probably toast. Time for a new one.

DI 524 Frequent Wireless Network Loss


Try changing the channel of your router ex (channel 1-6-11). Since you upgrade the firmware of your router you need to reset it to factory default and reconfigure everything so the new firmware will take effect.

DI-524 Wireless


Yes you can, it's easy.

1. Just connect one of the LAN ports of the DI-524 to a LAN port of your other router. Leave the DI-524 WAN port empty.
2. Disable the DHCP server on your DI-524, your other router will be the DHCP server.
3. Assign a static IP address to you DI-524, different from your other router's. Example, if your other router has 192.168.2.1, you may assign 192.168.2.4. Make sure that the IP address you assign is outside the DHCP range configured in your other router and that the subnet mask is identical on both.

Have D-link 704 router, can I connect the DI-524 to it also to add wireless?


Hi, I have not tried it myself with DLink but with LinkSys, yes it will work. It may take a little configuration tinkering but should work. However a few notes: 1. You should only have 1 DHCP server (both have this feature); 2. You can not have 2 identical IP address; 3. I suggest you make the 524 as the gateway and the 704 as a slave; 4. In effect you will connect 1 of the LAN port of the 524 to the WAN input of the 704; 5. You have to copy the WAN settings of the 704 to the WAN settings of the 524; 6. Or if you want to retain the 704 as the gateway, disable the identical features in the 524. I suggest you treat the 524 as a client of the 704. Hope this gives you some idea and work out for you as it did with my LinkSys. Goodluck and kind regards.
