Re: slow connection

Router needs firmware upgrade. Call dlink for support or you can check their website for possible downloads (firmware). It is also possible that there are configurations on the router that has not been properly set.

Slow connection

your internet may be slow due to following reasons
- Your ISP (internet service provider) may be having issues with routing signals to you.
- Your browser memory cache is so full, your browser has to slow down to allow for its limited hard drive space.
- You might have spyware/malware infecting your machine, and secretly using your Internet bandwidth.
So You need to optimize browsers and internet connection.
- First of all update the browser
- Disabling The Firewall
- Remove unwanted tool-bars and plug-ins
- clear temp files
- Deactivate background running services
If you are unable to perform above tasks then use a single utility tool like PC Fresher that will not only fix windows errors but will also optimize Internet

I have attached my DI-524UP to a new modem but now I can not use the internet. the wireless is working as it conecets but the internet is not connected. The lights are flashing on the front of the unit...

Your D-Link DI-24UP needs to "log into" your ISP's network again - by switching it to a new
(DSL? cable?) modem, your router lost its "login" with the ISP.
Solution: power cycle the router. This will force it to log back into your ISP's network, at which
time you'll have to supply (probably manually), your account name and password that your account
has with your ISP.

I restet my linsky wireless adapter and all i get is a flashing blue power light

The flashing blue light is absolutely normal!!! Please follow these steps to configure your computers to your wireless router

Wait one complete minute until applying power to modem then wait one minute before applying power to wireless router. 3. Ensure you have green lights across both devices, specifically, the recieved and sent lights. These same lights will tend to blink rapidly when there is active data, at times this will still blink, and a DNS error will prevent you from connecting to the internet. If this is the case, call your ISP Internet service provider 4. Check your authentication Security key on your router first, then check all your wireless devices to ensure they are on the same network name, key, and channel with the same type of encryption as the router 5. Start one device at a time and check for connectivity, if your still experiencing a problem, check the settings on all your wireless adapters, device drivers, internet browser settings, firewalls and proceed. 6. still have problems, connect a rj45 cable from the router directly to your computer to at least see if your wireless settings are bad or if the router may be bad. 7. Contact your ISP to determine if your receiving singal 8. Avoid using a splitter or parital power backup for yours routers 9. Still having problems, change your wireless router only after your ISP changes their faulty modem 10.Attempt the same process when setting up your new wireless router and or modem

It would seem that the router is not running fast enough. If I try Netflix it shows my movies but does not down load fast enough to run. What is going on here?

If you are currently using wireless to connect to your router, it might be a good investment to get a signal booster because if you are too far away the signal starts to degrade and slow the internet speed down.
If you are using a wired connection for the connection to the router, there are a multitude of things that could be slowing it down, ranging from internet congestion clear up to faulty firmware.
A few things can be done in order to help speed up the router's/Internet performance.
  1. Close any unneeded programs, this could be all because of a simple program trying to fetch an update.
  2. Check if it is just Internet Congestion, this is a simple one, try accessing the internet at different times of the day to see if there is just too many people running their internet at a time.
  3. Call your ISP, The Internet Service Provider (ISP) could be doing maintence on the network and could be slowing it down. They also could be blocking Netflix from streaming also, so make sure you contact them.
  4. Upgrade your router's firmware, a guide to this can be found on the manufacturer's website. Just keep a backup just in case because anything can happen.
  5. Get a newer cable, if your router is running off a CAT5 cable it could be a simple reason to the congestion. It would be a wise investment to upgrade the cable anyways to a CAT6. A way to identify what cables you have is to check the side of the cable, it probably will be printed on it somewhere.
  6. Turn off/Unplug unneeded Internet Using Devices, if you have a device on the network that uses internet it could be a reason for the latency. Some devices go on the internet to check for news, time updates, software updates, etc...
  7. Time to upgrade Internet Package, this one should be kept for last because it will be the most expensive to do.
These are just a few things that could be happening, but if none of these help, you might want to get a qualified technician to come and inspect the issue.

Drops connection

1. Your router may have lost the IP address from the ISP (Internet Service Provider)
2. go into the router using the IP address to check the status of the router. This will tell you if you have lost connection with the service provider.
3. Call your ISP to verify connectivity. There may have been a line interruption.
4. check with the router manufacturer for router firmware updates.
5. If your router is older it may be at what is call "end- of - life" and may longer be serviceable by the manufacturer.
6. You also may want to try moving the router to a spot away from electronic devices such as TV'S, cell phone, cordless phone bases, and microwave ovens. These device send signal that are on the same frequency as the router and may have an affect on your connectivty. This also may account for connectivity drops.
