Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router

5 Answers

Router won't speak with computer

I hooked up the DI-524 router according to the quick install guidelines. The computer could not get to the set-up page. All of the right lights on the router were either lit or flashing appropriately. I tried pinging the router, and there was no response. I looked in the device manager, and under network adapters the DLink router was not there, but there were a couple of other items. Is there anything else I can do to get the computer to speak with the router?

    I set up my dlink just as the guide said to, but then when i tried to put inhttp://www.192.168.0.1 my computer couldn't find the page for it. Also all the lights that are supposed to be working are either flashing or on.

Hey greenrod.. actually ur Dlink Router shouldnt be under device manager. Its a router not a network adapter. Network Adapters are network cards like ethernet, wireless adapter, and some other stuff. Anyway, If ur having problems installing your router via the Dlink setup I suggest trying to manually configure the router. Check your ip address by going to command prompt and typing ipconfig. You should be getting a default gateway of 192.168.0.1. after that ping the gateway by typing ping 192.168.0.1. If youre getting replies then good. Open up your browser and try going in to the 192.168.0.1. If it ask for a username type there admin and keep the pw blank. Once inside the Router check there if your ISP is connected. If not then contact your ISP regarding this. In case that youre not getting 192.168.0.1 on your default gateway then I thik its about time you call DLINK for help. Somethng is not configured right then. Take CARE!

Such as u said. there is in divice manager and under network adapgers the DLink router was not there, but htere were a couple of other items. you should first Un-plug ur Dlink router and delete all other items whitch is not useable after that plug Dlink router and that software (Driver) by DLink's driver CD, or download from its side and install. assign static ip address and subnetmask of same range such as Dlink router's IP address and subnetmask.

Who is your ISP? cable or dsl? Configuring te router will depend largely on your internet connection type when connected straight to the modem. If it is cable, ussually it is just set to automatic/dhcp (static ip is also one possiblility but minimal) but if you have DSL , there is a big possibility that it could be PPPoE (with username and password from isp) They are also right. You will not be seeing the router on the device manager. If you cannot access set up page using the default gateway number, try disabling firewall and disable proxy server on internet options. make sure that cable wires are properly plugged. BY the way, you can access the set up page even without the modem plugged on your router. Try PC-router conenction firt and if you already have accessed set up page thats the time you can connect back the modem. This is becaue there are scenarios where the router is having an ip conflict with the router. This set up will also require changing the local ip address of your router.

If you check your computer's IP address, is it getting one from the router? Normally out of the box these routers are setup to give out DHCP, which basically means that your computer, if also set that way (again, default) will grab any necessary info from the router (IP address, subnet mask, gateway, etc). You didn't at some point set your PC to use a static IP address that's different than the D-Link's subnet did you? D-Links default to 192.168.0.1, so your computer should be getting an IP in that range as well.

DI-524 status problem


Did this happen after a firmware upgrade? If so, this link may help:

http://borgetech.blogspot.com/2007/09/d-link-di-524-revision-b4-status-light.html

Apparently there's a utility which will force firmware to load on the router. The steps are a bit technical, though.

If that doesn't work, the router is probably toast. Time for a new one.

Change from 'unsecure' to 'secure' router


You don't need to install anything extra to secure the network. It's a matter of changing router settings. You set up the router through your web browser by going to "http://192.168.0.1" which accesses the device's setup screens.

There are several revisions of this product. Here is the URL for D-Link's selection page for the router:

http://support.dlink.com/products/revision.asp?productid=di-524

Click on the picture that shows the version you have, and then you'll be taken to the page for that version. You can download a manual or look through the FAQ's which will guide you through the process of setting up the security.
