Question about D-Link DI 514 Wireless Router (DI-514)
I cannot connect to the router with a wired connection. I have a new ethernet cable, the router and computer are on the same network, the lights at the ethernet card are on, the port light on the router is on, I have tried several ports on the router, both the router and computer say they are working properly, I have rebooted and reset the router, the computer says it is connected, I cannot see the router or computer from each other. It seems like the ports on the router don't work. I can connect wirelessly without a problem.
Firstly dissable your wireless adapter, as the router will try to allocate the same ip address to your pc twice, and this is not allowed. You need to check that the wired network card is set to obtain an ip address automatically, go to control panel>network connections right click on the network card icon>properties in the TCP/IP click properties again. restart pc, type 192.168.0.1 in your web browser and you should be able to get into the routers settings.

Do you have any funky subnets for your Cisco router? Do not connect the wireless router to your network yet, as it may have the same IP address as your other router.
Basically the easiest way to do this is to set a dedicated IP for the 2Wire router on the Cisoo router. Then make them stay on the same subnet, but give an IP range for your Cisco router, like 1-50 or something. If you give the 2Wire router IP .51 for instance, then give the Wifi users on the 2Wire IP range from .52-75 or something.
Make the 2Wire router only use wifi and not serve DHCP addresses. Then you setup the 2Wire router to get its info from the Cisco router.
I searched and there is no howto out there for doing this with a Cisco router. However, here is one I used to setup a similar scenario with a Netgear router. It worked. If you are able to translate a bit, it might work for you:
Here is another article:
Let me know if you are able to work through this. You need to give the 2wire router a static IP and you need to NOT use it for wired connections, and not use it to serve DHCP settings.

SOURCE: Ethernet port connection failure
There were no error messages. Ethernet controller is OK under devices. During Linksys router install is simply says wired connection to computer can not be found or failed. So I plugged the router into my hp dv5 laptop and viola the new ethernet cable and router worked fine. So with limited time left I suggested a bad connector port which could be dirt/debris, oxidation, bent pin, etc. The computer is in a farmhouse, needs cleaning, and is subject to high humidity during summers.
It seems simplier to me to get on with life and have him get a $10 ethernet card. The sound on this Dell motherboard has already failed too.
Today I installed an 8 year old Linksys modem at our moms with much success so I'm happy.
Thanks for your time and if you have any other ideas for my bother then shoot away.

Do you need to see the desktop or just share folders from each other? If the latter then you need to do the following:
Use Windows Explorer and select a folder you want to share. Right click and select sharing and security.
On the sharing tab click on Share this folder. Enter a share name ( I like to enter the PC name _folder name; Rick1_Downloads)
Click on Permissions. If your ok with everyone using the PC's and Laptops having access then highlight Everyone and click on Full Control.
Do this on each PC and Laptop.
That should be it or darned near close.

Perform a factory reset and reconfigure the modem.
Disconnect the power cable from the back of the router.
With a bent paper clip, press and hold the red reset button on the rear of the router through the small hole indicated. Reconnect the power cable with the button still pressed. Keep the button pressed for 5 to 10 seconds. Connect to the router using your wired computer (desktop) via a web browser. Type the following address: 192.168.1.1 Login using username: Admin Password is either admin, linksys, or does not have a password. Setup your DSL Login information (uses PPPoE with Dynamic IP Address). Enter your ISP login ID and password. You may be required to specify the login ID as the full e-mail address ie: firstname.lastname@example.org. Configure the wireless protection feature as WPA2 with AES encryption (shared-key) for best security. Also choose a strong password, 8 characters in length minimum and containing numbers, letters (uppercase and/or lower case) in the password. Passwords are case sensitive. Also be sure to change the default SSID from Linksys to something identifyable, but without using personal information.
