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.

    There is no wireless adapter on that computer. I have dhcp turned off and have assigned static ip's. I have tried using dhcp to no avail. I have also changed the network address, but that doesn't matter, I know how to get into the router settings and change them. There is nothing in there I can find that would have an affect. And there are no conflicting ip addresses. Any other ideas?

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.

    you said cant connect to router, so how did you check settings?

    i can assume you have two pc's and you cannot see the other pc, as if you already have one pc with the router settings available, you cannot get into the router at the same time with two pc's as only one has administrative rights at a time.

    I therefore assume you cannot see the other pc on the network, so you may be wise checking that they are both on the same network eg home or workgroup and it may also be necassary to run the network wizard on the problem pc, but you may need to alter the ip address again when it's finished.

SOURCE: unable to connect 2 routers need help!

Hi,

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:

http://kbserver.netgear.com/inquira/default.asp?ui_mode=answer&prior_transaction_id=306896&action_code=5&highlight_info=16778323,235,239&turl=http%3A%2F%2Fkbserver.netgear.com%2Fkb_web_files%2Fn101236.asp&answer_id=6056802#__highlight

Here is another article:
http://kbserver.netgear.com/inquira/default.asp?ui_mode=answer&prior_transaction_id=306896&action_code=5&highlight_info=16777285,246,260&turl=http%3A%2F%2Fkbserver.netgear.com%2Fkb_web_files%2FN101496.asp&answer_id=6056800#__highlight

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: 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: b1w045562@myisp.com. 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.

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.

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).
Procedure:
  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.

If there is only 1 ethernet port on your router it sounds like this is the port for your modem to connect to your router and that your router is only built for wireless. If you want to connect computers via ethernet cable you will need either a new router with a 4 port switch or a new wireless router with a 4 port switch. (you can get more than 4 ports if you have more that 4 computers).

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,
Pelu.

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.

C5180 all in one is not connecting via ethernet.


Before you begin: Check requirements Make sure you have the following items:
  • One of the following types of wired access points or routers: Ethernet router, switch, hub, or wireless router with Ethernet ports
  • A computer that connects to the wired access point or router
  • A Category 5 Ethernet cable to use for the HP product. (Do not use a standard telephone cable.) Figure 2: Cable comparisonc01710115.gif 1 - Ethernet cable 2 - Telephone cable (do not use) Although an Ethernet cable looks similar to standard telephone cable, each has a different plug and a different number of wires. The plug on an Ethernet cable (also called an RJ-45 connector) is wide, thick, and always has eight wires. The plug on a telephone cable is narrower and has between two and six wires.
Are you changing from USB connection to Ethernet connection?If you previously installed the software for a USB connection and now want to change to an Ethernet connection, follow these instructions to remove the USB installation before continuing.
  1. Click Start , click Printers and Faxes , and then right-click the icon for HP product.
  2. Click Delete to remove the product.
  3. Disconnect the USB cable from the product and the computer.
Step one: Connect the HP All-in-One to the network
  1. Remove any plug or protective cover from the Ethernet port on the back of the product. Figure 3: Remove plugc01710117.gif
  2. Connect the Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on the product, and then connect the other end of the cable to an available port on the wired access point or router. Figure 4: Connect the Ethernet cablec01710118.gif
  3. Connect the power cord to the product, and then plug it into an electrical outlet.
  4. Turn the product on.
Step two: Decide whether to install with the product CD or download the software Don’t worry if you don’t have the product CD! You can download the most current software available for your product from the HP Web site at no cost. The following information might help you decide which installation method to use:
CD Download For a new product: CD installation is a quick and easy method. If you do not have a CD, you can download the software you need. For an older product: CD installation might not work if you are installing the product on a computer running a newer operating system that released AFTER the HP product released. Downloading the software provides the best results for your older product. Even though it takes more time than using the CD, downloading the latest software can help you avoid installation issues.

Downloading is the recommended method if your computer operating system released after the HP product released. About the software: The software on the CD is current to the date of the product release. The software that you can download from the HP Web site is the most current software available for your product. HP often updates software and drivers AFTER the product and CD release to the market.Step three: Install the software

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.
