Question about D-Link Dlink DI-514 Air Wireless 2.4 GHz Router (A0177337)

Dl-514 d'link can't read signal from macbook

I got this D'Link from work where it has been sitting for some time.Brought it home after purchasing a macbook. I've never set up wireless before and this is my first laptop. I don't have the start up disc but I did connect the macbook through ethernet to the Dl-514 and did the set up wizard at 192.168.0.1. The macbook just doesn't read the wireless signal. I've taken it to work where it reads wireless fine and it reads other signals from around the neighborhood, but I think this D'Link might be faulty. I've played with the network settings in the macbook and have also tried reseting the router. Any help?

Perhaps the reason it has been sitting around at work for some time is that someone just didn't have the heart to throw it away after it went afoul?

Try resetting the thing by removing power, pressing in the little reset button on the back, holding that button in whilst re-applying power. Hold it in for 30 seconds after you plug it back in. That should cause the unit to reset.

Can't find any Dl-514 files that aren't DFL. Borrowed the Dl-514 but forgot to ask if he had a installation cd.


Are you trying to set up router ?
You can set up your router manually, without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

I use a dl 514 router. the computer shows a wireless connection and a strong signal but i'm not able to get online. now that I'm using a cable, it still shows a wireless connection with a strong signal.


Its quite likely that the router is not connected to your computer wirelessly. Which means, your wireless card is not picking up a IP address. I would suggest two thigns 1. In your wireless utlity , try to repair the connection. 2. Check if you have a static IP address. If you do, remove it.
Hope this helps
Thanks Ranjit
