Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router

1 Answer

I cant connect my laptop to my DI-524 router after I reset router

I had two pcs and a laptop networked with dlink's DI-524 router. This morning I think something may have gotten unplugged because no computers could connect to the internet. I checked the wires and tightened them but this still didn't seem to work so I reset the router by holding in the hidden button for 10 seconds. this still didn't work. My roomate checked the wires again and pluged the wires in harder and both the pcs could connect to the internet but not the laptop. I think it was a mistake for me to reset the router since the problem was probably just the wires not being plugged in tight enough (my ethernet cord's little plastic thing that keeps it tightly plugged is broken). So now the settings for the router have gone back to default (a tech support guy originally set them over a year and a half ago so I don't know how) and the laptop cannot connect. The router is out of warranty so cant get tech help without a large charge. Does anyone know how to configure the router to have a password and connect wirelessly with a laptop?

To configure wireless:

1. Open browser, type "192.168.0.1" under the URL and press Enter

2. Username & password will be prompt
Username = admin
Password = by default is empty

3. Once entered inside the router config, on your left u can see a wizard tab, just click on it and follow the on screen instruction.

Cant connect my laptop wirelessly...


Try to reconfigure your wireless network on your DI-524.

To access the configuration page of your router by Default type in on the address bar 192.168.0.1. On the login page by default the Username is admin and leave the Password blank.

If inside the the configuration page of the router

>Click Home
> Click on WIRELESS located on the left side and you will have the wireless setting of your network
> Change the wireless network name
> Under security choose either WEP or WPA -PSK for this type of router.
> Type in your new network key (also know as Passphrase of Key1).

For WEP use 0 to 9 Number or A to F character and it should be exactly 10 characters.
For WPA-PSK you can use alpha numeric from 0 to 9 and from A to Z. The minimun character would be 8.

> Click on apply
> Click on continue.
Try accessing your wireless network first using your wireless computer. If you are connected to your wireless network try connecting to the Internet.

Dlink wireless router, shows up, can't connect


the manual can be downloaded from the dlink website;
ftp://ftp.dlink.co.uk/di_broadband_gateways/di-524/di-524_manual.pdf

you are also able to get a couple of utilities from the dlink website; it's a very long link but this is the location for the relevent files.

the formatting is messed up but just copy and paste into you web browser.

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)

Help set up wireless router


do a hard reset on it first (press and hold down the small reset button for about 10 seconds usually located at the back of it).

On your wireless connection icon, right click then select view available wireless networks, check if it finds your dlink then connect to it. If your router has a wireless key, its gonna ask for it before you can connect to it

Dlink di-524 connect to RV042


Hi.

You need to cascade the Dlink wireless router to your RV042.

Suppose your RV042 has a default IP Address of 192.168.1.1, and the DLINK IP uses 192.168.0.1. Your Physical connection is from the regular port of the RV042 going to the WAN/Internet Port of the DLink wireless router.

Once you do that, your Dlink router should automatically obtain an IP from the main router. If it did, configure your wireless settings and you should be able to connect via wireless.

This is just one way to cascade your router to another router.
