Question about D-Link DI 514 Wireless Router (DI-514)

1 Answer

No wired connection

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.

Re: no wired connection

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 in your web browser and you should be able to get into the routers settings.

SOURCE: unable to connect 2 routers need help!


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:,235,239&

Here is another article:,246,260&

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.

SOURCE: Connecting Laptop wireless and Desktop wired to the router

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.

SOURCE: Router will not connect to the internet. It

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: 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: 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.

I use a cable internet connection which works. When I connect the router, I ran cable to blue connection on router and another ethernet cabel from the computer to another port on the router. When I do...

Turn the cable-modem off.
Turn the router off.
Use an Ethernet cable to connect the cable-modem to the 'WAN' (or 'INTERNET') port on the router.
Use another Ethernet cable to connect one of the 'LAN' (or 'NETWORK') ports on the router to the network-port on your computer.

Turn the cable-modem on, and wait for its lamps to settle-down to a steady pattern.
Turn the router on, and wait for its lamps to settle-down to a steady pattern.
On your computer, you should be able to access the Internet.

Also, look at the colour of the EIGHT wires at each of each Ethernet cable.
The order of the coloured wires should be IDENTICAL at both ends.

Share Your Internet Connection with More Than One Computer- The Easy Way

Here is a simple way share your home internet connection with more than one computer. This will work for both wired and wireless and doesn't require alot of technical or computer skills to accomplish. I'm sure there are other ways, but if you're looking for a simple repeatable setup, here it is.

If you've got a dsl connection through a dsl modem, this TIP will work for you.
If you've got a cable modem, this TIP will work just as well.

Here's a list of what you'll need.

  1. Dsl or cable modem that works on your system and you can access internet with one computer (If you're using the internet, most likely you've got this already).
  2. Wired (Ethernet) or Wireless Router (wifi routers have 4-6 ethernet ports also).
  3. For Wired: Ethernet cable to connect modem to router.
  4. For Wireless: Wifi compatible computer or wifi card for your computer (follow manufacturer's instructions for proper install).
  1. Turn all components off. This includes anything on your existing network- computer, modem, printer and any router you may currently be using.
  2. With all power off, connect an ethernet cable between your modem and your new cable/dsl router(wired or wireless).
  3. Turn on the power to your new router only and let it boot up completely.
  4. Turn on the dsl/cable modem and allow it to boot. Since the router was booted first, the modem with recognize the router's MAC address (ethernet numerical address) and connect that address to the internet.
  5. Connect all the other components onto the router with the ethernet cables as needed and turn on the components- no particular order is necessary after the router and modem are booted. Your router will assign MAC addresses to all the ethernet components. Once the MAC address is assigned, your computer should work correctly with the internet and shouldn't drop out when the second computer is turned on.
  6. For wireless connections, boot up your computer with the properly installed Wifi card, airport card and allow it to "find" your router. Once you get confirmation of the signal, you're good to go.
Following this procedure will allow your modem, your router to use their designed software to connect you without a bunch of programming. You will actually enjoy having more than one computer sharing an internet connection.

Remember this procedure and follow the steps again if you lose power and have to reboot your network.

Wired connection randomly drops

Since the wireless works fine on your router, then it is possible that there is a problem either on your ethernet cable or on the port of the belkin router.
Try a different ethernet cable. (Ethernet cable is the one that is connected from your computer to the router.) If you don't have a spare cable, you can directly connect the computer to the modem, just to isolate the issue and determine if it is the cable or the computer itself.
If you have determined that the cable is working fine, then try a different port on the router.
I hope this helps!

Second computer connected to this model gives message "Network cable unplugged" when it is not! network connection intermittent. What can we do please?

Hi Jackie!
It sounds like a communication problem between the router and the computer. Try the following solutions to solve this:

1.Connect the LAN cable to other free LAN port in the router.

2. Try using a different LAN cable.

3. a. Open Device Manager
b. Go to Network adapters. Click on the "+" sign next to it.
c. Double-click on your network adapter.
d. On Advanced tab, look for Speed/duplex settings (or Media Type)
and change it's value to Full autonegotiation (or AutoSelect).
e. Click OK on all windows.
f. Close the Device Manager and restart your computer.

4. Reinstall or update your network adapter device drivers.

A "workaround" solution - use a wireless network adapter to connect wirelessly to the router.

Hope I helped,

I am trying to connect my new router to my laptop,but the instructions say i should connect my pc to the internet by connecting my ethernet cable to the problem is i have only one connection and...

Modem <-- Ethernet cable --> WAN port on router

LAN port #1 on router <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop computer

LAN port #2 on router <-- Ethernet cable --> network-port on laptop computer

If the router has built-in "wireless" capability, then use the desktop computer's connection to the router to "configure" the wireless adapter, i.e., pick an SSID, and establish a password, and then your laptop computer can use the SSID/password to connect "wirelessly" to the router.

You connect the phone line to the router, then you connect ONE PC to the router via an Ethernet cable and configure router, after that you can remove that Ethernet connection and connect wirelessly.

I don't know how to connect my router. please help

If you have DSL or cable internet, disconnect the ethernet cable going from the DSL or cable internet modem to the computer. Disconnect the end of that cable that plugs into the modem. Connect an ethernet cable from your cable or DSL modem to the router where it says something like "modem", "internet", or "in". If the router is a wired router, connect the ethernet cable that is still attached to the computer to any open ethernet port on the router.

Have SBCglobal with 2wire but want N wireless capability

Follow the dots -

2 wire DSL wire to back of DSL modem.

Ethernet cable out of DSL modem, to current router (if you have one).

Ethernet cable out of current router (if you have one) to new Wireless N router.

If you currently have a wireless G router, keep it, or, use the new Wireless G/N router alone. You will need to set up all security settings again if you remove your current router, and if the new router is N only, you will need to make sure all your wireless connecting computers have wireless N cards in them.
