D-Link DI-524 Router

I used the router for wireless and two wired computers. Recently I switched from DSL modem to cable modem and the wireless became intermittent. My IMAC and my laptop can only see the router every one in a while, and very weak - can't open any browser as it times out. I've tried physically moving the router right beside the laptop - same thing. I have reset the router, as well as gone through the setup wizard. No difference. I purchased a new D-Link router WBR-1310, thinking the 524 is broken. Same thing - wired connections work great, but the wireless can barely be seen. I've tried with and without WEP password. Any ideas?

    After going back to the supplier it seems that the 524 wasn't working properly. I did get WBR working properly. Thanks for your help.

You have interference...go into router and override the channel selection from auto to a different channel. The band is limited by the FCC and most manufacturers tend to default to the same channel (frequency). Dont confuse this with band...ex. G, N, B, A You want the actual frequency to change. Good luck

I want to disable wirless broadcasting in D-Link DI-524 how i can do it ?


I don't think you can disable the wireless but you can prevent people accessing your wireless network.
To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access,please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

Alternately you can connect your computer to your DSL or cable modem without using the D-Link.

Ethernet connection of DI-524 does not work


You have to make the Ip changes on the laptop not on the modem.
You said you have internet acces on one computer. Then use that computer to find out the exact IP address used by the modem.
On the laptop use the exact same numbers, (IP, Sub mask, Gateway, Primary DNS)
and chek if it works.
If you want to have both computers on the Internet, simply change the last number on the IP address ONLY.

D-Link DI-524 is not communicating with modem


Checklist:
* Is DHCP configured correctly?
* Connect your server and laptop to a switch (not directly with the cable)
* Can they ping each other?
* Check that the firewall is configured (or switched off if you have another FW in place)
* Default gateway should be your router, not the computers (until you have configured RRAS for example)

Installing a DI-524 router


Hi askar,

I'm assuming if you've been given a username/password you've either got DSL (a PPPoE connection) or it's for your email address. If you don't have a disc for your new router, you can configure it through a wired connection to the router (using an ethernet cable). That's a bit of work but if you need to do it that way we can help. Otherwise run the CD that came with the router (again, you'll need a computer plugged into it) and the step-by-step should get you through it.

For starters, unplug the modem and then plug the cable running from the old router into the same port space in the new router (should say either WLAN or Uplink). Turn on the modem, wait 30 seconds, then power on the router. After that run the disc and you should be good.

If not, let me know!

D-link wireless internet


It is always a good thing to start the different peripherals in an order. First, you start your modem. Wait 30 seconds. Then, start the router; wait another 30 seconds; then the computer.

Connect to wireless D-Link and Westell6100


I am assuming that you have a functional LAN cable connecting the Westell and the DI 524, right? If you are unsure, replace it with a cable you know is good.

If the 524 is turned on downstream of the Westell modem, it should find what it wants. You may try rebooting the Westell and seeing if the 524 finds it, and you maybe should reboot the 524.

Sometimes, when the world gets jiggered up I have to work pretty hard to get my DI-524 resync'd to my DSL modem.
