Does new fw allow to use it in wireless client mode?

It's correct, exactly this is the point. The wireless router (DI-524) should realize the wireless connection between my switched LAN and the external access point only. This mode is called "wireless client" mode and is unfortunately no more supported by the DI-524 firmware. :-( Now I'm looking for an another (maybe open source) firmware for my router. Thx!

Your router in that case, wouldn't be the one that connects to the other access point, the wireless adapters on your pc's are the connection between the pc and the other access point, as the router itself cannot access other routers or connections as it has it's own ip address.

Press and hold the RESET button at the back of the router with the power ON untilthe LEDs flash at the time the release the RESET button.
Connect a LAN cable from the D-Link to your laptop/computer's LAN port, openthe browser on your laptop/computer and enter the D-Link's configuration URL..

I have router DI-524 and am unable to connect to internet thru this router. But it says, it is connected


I would do a hard reset by pushing the small button on the back. You will need a small pen to push it. Push and hold down button till the lights flash I would/ say 10-15 seconds should be good enough. Once it's reset try setting up all of your settings again. Remember if you have dsl you will need you username and password to be inputed in some cases. If it is broadband most likely you will not have to bother with username and pass hope this helps.

Using DI-524, can't find the wireless network


Hi,


Have you properly configured the web based Wireless configurations of the router? Also check WLAN IP configuration of your laptop. Configure WLAN IP configuration to DHCP and try again.

Can't find IP to access di-524 (in bridge mode?)


As Joed said, try resetting your router. This can be done by unplugging the device and pressing in a normally small, recessed button on the very rear of the device or on the bottom, which ought to be held in for a period of 5-10 seconds.

If you are still not able to contact the router afterward, please respond so we may continue to assist you.

Disabled dhcp, cant access router with browser


the default ipaddress for that is 192.168.0.1 you will need to set your computer with a ip address like 192.168.0.2 then you should be able to access it. be sure to change your computer back to DHCP after you reset the router

Router Configuration in "Wireless Client" Mode


Hi, If I understand you right, what you want to do is to make the DI-524 as a repeater, i.e. receive from the "external wireless access point" and re-broadcast to your "small home wireless LAN". Unfortunately, no. D-Link made it a point not to enable repeater mode in the DI-524 model (firmware has no support for wireless distribution service). Other than your old DWL-900AP+, one other model they have that can do this is the DWL-G710 but only in WiFi and not in the Ethernet port. On some other brands of similar feature models, the original manufacturer's firmware may be replaced with an open source firmware with more features enabled. An example is the LinkSys' WRT54G and the replacement firmwares by Sveasoft and another named DD-WRT. Hope this be of some information to you. Post back should you require additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

Have D-link 704 router, can I connect the DI-524 to it also to add wireless?


Hi, I have not tried it myself with DLink but with LinkSys, yes it will work. It may take a little configuration tinkering but should work. However a few notes: 1. You should only have 1 DHCP server (both have this feature); 2. You can not have 2 identical IP address; 3. I suggest you make the 524 as the gateway and the 704 as a slave; 4. In effect you will connect 1 of the LAN port of the 524 to the WAN input of the 704; 5. You have to copy the WAN settings of the 704 to the WAN settings of the 524; 6. Or if you want to retain the 704 as the gateway, disable the identical features in the 524. I suggest you treat the 524 as a client of the 704. Hope this gives you some idea and work out for you as it did with my LinkSys. Goodluck and kind regards.
