Using di-804 as a simple switch

Hi,
Does anyone know if it's possible and ifso how to set up the d-link 804 to act like an ordinary switch ?

There are 4 ports in place so it wouldn't be impossible !

/Regards Torsten

    Thanx for trying,

    That's what I thought too, the main problem was probably that I tried to connect from a Linux-based machine(all other machines in my network worked just fine) and the problem disappeared when I connected a crossed TP.

    All systems gooo :-))

If u want to use it as a switch, do not connect the WAN port, just connect to the LAN ports.

How do I get to lock my wireless that nobody can get to use the same frequency as my .


You cannot prevent others from using the same wireless channel/frequency as you, but you can enable the wireless security and set an encryption key, or even mac address filtering, which can act to disallow anyones wifi card access to its services except those who are put on the "allow" list.

Router DL-804 is'not compatible with Windows Vista?


Hi mila_shechtm,

The router shouldn't care what operating system your on, however, Vista does have a UPNP (universal plug and play) way of adding it to your hardware. I don't know if you've updated the DL-804 with the new UPNP firmware, but if not I'd differently do that first. You can get the free UPNP firmware HERE. Follow the instruction and when you turn your computer Vista should recognize your router.


Good Luck,

And don't forget to leave a rating regarding my soloution

Want to use Dlink DI-514 with Qwest modem to hardwire 2 computers


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.

Only partial internet access


Try a public DNS server, like:

  • 205.234.170.215
  • 205.234.170.217

  • There are many more, if you just want to 'Google' for them, IE; "Public Name Servers"

    Let me know if there are any changes..
