Wireless Router No Longer Connecting

Hello, I have a D-Link DI-524 wireless router which is no longer supplying connection to the internet. I have used this router successfully in the past. I have tried both just connecting the modem to the WAN, and further connecting my laptop to to the '1' port. In both cases my laptop is only picking up the router's 'local' network. I know the connection is fine as I have internet when plugging from the modem into the computer. This is my first time attempting to use the router in this location. Thaaank you.

    DSL, fairly sure it's PPPOE. Right now I have the modem and the computer plugged in the router's LAN ports and am receiving internet but no wireless. Status light is blinking, as is WLAN light.

    I have great ethernet connection if direct through Shaw's cable modem. From the modem, the ethernet cable is connected to the D-Link DI-524's WAN port. The power light is solidly on. The status light is steadily blinking. The WAN light is a solid but flitting light. The WLAN light is blinking about 2.5 times faster than the status light. NO other lights on the router are on. I don't know what the problem is but it shows I have a wireless connection yet I cannot open any internet pages. It continues saying that "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" "DNS server responds 'name unknown'". I have been to the D-Link setup site and still have not figured out any configuration. Help!

    I have the ame problem. Verizon with DSL. About a week ago my DI-524 would no longer connect to the internet. I think D-link is trying to oust the older routers.

  • gatito2 Feb 27, 2009

    I have the same problem, I know I have a good internet connection but my router is not giving the proper DNS, and I have no wireless or LAN connection when using my router.
    Does anyone knows a solution?
    thanx!

SOURCE: Connecting a DI-524 to a DI-604

This shouldn't really be any problem simply use a short "Uplink" ethernet cable to join the routers thru the uplink port, or any port really, and that way ya should be able to wifi and access the net, set ya router that connects to the net for DCHP and disable that setting in the Wifi router and ya should be good to go?

Hi there

Getting Started

Setting up a Wireless Infrastructure Network
8bd3361.jpg
Please remember that D-Link AirPlus G wireless devices are pre-configured to connect together, right out of the box, with their default settings.For a typical wireless setup at home (as shown above), please do the following:
1) You will need broadband Internet access (a Cable or DSL-subscriber line into
your home or office)
2) Consult with your Cable or DSL provider for proper installation of the modem
3) Connect the Cable or DSL modem to the DI-524 Wireless Broadband Router
(see the printed Quick Installation Guide included with your router.)
4) If you are connecting a desktop computer to your network, install the D-Link AirPlus G DWL-G510 wireless PCI adapter into an available PCI slot on your desktop computer. You may also install the DWL-G520, or the DWL-520. (See the printed Quick Installation Guide included with the network adapter.)
5) Install the D-Link DWL-G630 wireless Cardbus adapter into a laptop computer.
(See the printed Quick Installation Guide included with the DWL-G630.)
6) Install the D-Link DFE-530TX+ adapter into a desktop computer. The four Ethernet LAN ports of the DI-524 are Auto MDI/MDIX and will work with both Straight-Through and Cross-Over cable. (See the printed Quick Installation Guide included with the DFE-530TX+.)

Using the Configuration Menu

Whenever you want to configure your network or the
DI-524, you can access the Configuration Menu by
opening the web-browser and typing in the IP Address
of the DI-524. The DI-524 default IP Address is shown
bellow:
-Open the web browser
-Type in the IP Address of
the Router (http://192.168.0.1)
cf4c550.jpg
Note: if you have changed the default IP Address assigned
to the DI-524, make sure to enter the correct IP Address.

-Type admin in the User
Name field
-Leave the Password blank
-Click OK

SSID- Service Set Identifier (SSID) is the name designated for a specific wireless local area network (WLAN). The SSID’s factory default setting is default. The SSID can be easily changed to connect to an existing wireless network or to establish a new wireless network.

Channel- 6 is the default channel. All devices on the network must share the same channel. (Note: The wireless adapters will automatically scan and match the wireless setting.)

WEP- Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is a wireless security protocol for Wireless Local Area Networks (WLAN). WEP provides security by encrypting the data that is sent over the WLAN. Select Enabled or Disabled. Disabled is the default setting. (Note: If you enable encryption on the DI-524 make sure to also enable encryption on all the wireless clients or wireless connection will not be established.)

WEP Encryption- Select the level of encryption desired: 64-bit, or 128-bit

Key Type- Select HEX or ASCII

Keys 1-4- Input up to 4 WEP keys; select the one you wish to use.

Host Name- The Host Name is optional but may be required by some ISPs. The default host name is the device name of the Router and may be changed.

MAC Address- The default MAC Address is set to the WAN’s physical interface MAC address on the Broadband Router. It is not recommended that you change the default MAC address unless required by your ISP.

Clone MAC Address- The default MAC address is set to the WAN’s physical interface MAC address on the Broadband Router. You can use the “Clone MAC Address” button to copy the MAC address of the Ethernet Card installed by your ISP and replace the WAN MAC address with the MAC address of the router. It is not recommended that you change the default MAC address unless required by your ISP.

DHCP stands for Dynamic Host Control Protocol. The DI-524 has a built-in DHCP server.
The DHCP Server will automatically assign an IP address to the computers on the LAN/
private network. Be sure to set your computers to be DHCP clients by setting their TCP/
IP settings to “Obtain an IP Address Automatically.” When you turn your computers on,
they will automatically load the proper TCP/IP settings provided by the DI-524. The
DHCP Server will automatically allocate an unused IP address from the IP address pool
to the requesting computer. You must specify the starting and ending address of the IP
address pool.

DHCP Server- Select Enabled or Disabled. The default setting is Enabled.
Starting
IP Address- The starting IP address for the DHCP server’s IP assignment
Ending
IP Address- The ending IP address for the DHCP server’s IP assignment

I have two desktops and one laptop on my di-524. One desktop no longer connects. The others are fine. Is this a router or adapter problem? I tried a d-link 'stick' but after working for one day, it no...


One desktop and 1 laptop are working that means your router must be working.

1 desktop is not working. Is that wired to the router or wireless ?

If it is wired then check the light on the router, If your computer is connected to port 1 of the router then port 1 light should lit up. If the light is not lit up then check the connection.
If the light is lit up then check the IP address on the computer.

If it is wireless desktop then check the wireless connection.

Connecting with internet


Yes, that is possible since you have a wireless router. Router can share internet connection. Go to this link this will help you setup the wireless connection (secure it if you want)

http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/wireless/Dlink/DI-524/wireless.htm then on the very bottom there is an option how to Configure Windows XP to connect to your wireless network.

I suggest this because it would be better if there is encryption on the network so people wont be able to access your internet for free (unless you give them the security key)

DI-524 wireless router as wireless switch


You need to disable the DHCP server on your "slave" wireless router ( the di-524 ). In D-link routers this might be called configuring it to be an "Access point".

When this happens, connecting to the second wireless router should cause your computer to obtain an IP address which is in the range of the first router (that is to say, it will use the first router's dhcp server).

You should be able have your laptop connect with an automatic IP address and have it work.
