DI-514 - Wireless 2.4GHz (802.11b) Router

I have a couple of pcs hardwired to the router and a couple of wireless laptops which also share the connection, rarely more than three machines at any one time. The settings on the router are currently unsecured and I would like to change the settings so my computers can all use it, but not someone nearby outside. I no longer have the manual for the router and any assistance to convert it to a secure network is appreciated, thank you.

Cannot access my wireless network

Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

There was a power outage 2 days ago. When the power came back on, the wireless portion of my DI-514 did not work. There was no internet connection to any of the pcs. How do I get it to work?

Try turning off the PC, the router, and the modem. Then restart them in this order waiting about 1 minute between each:

1) modem
2) router
3) PC

Good luck. Bry

Laptop can no longer see router. I hit reset

You need to re-configure the Wireless router. If you have the Wireless router settings back up, restore the settings from the back up.

Router connection problem

you will not see your router in any of the places you looked.
Easiest method:
Shutdown your PC and laptops. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC and laptops. The PC and laptops should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line. This is if you have a cable service provider.

Want to use Dlink DI-514 with Qwest modem to hardwire 2 computers

Believe it or not, Actiontec modems from Qwest are setup as a router already (even though ports are missing from it). You should use a switch instead of another router. Otherwise you will have to configure the DI-514 to act as a switch rather than a router. This is done by assigning a new starting IP address into your DI-514. By default both routers use as the default. You will have to plug the DI-514 seperately into a computer (to take it off the network) and assign a new starting IP address for the DI-514 such as for example. Then you will be able to get it work. I would strongly recommend using a switch instead and turn the wireless on the modem itself (this is why the modem is the router). It will save you some headaches if the power goes out.

Short connection and then no connection

This is a problem with the firmware of the router, so the best way to resolve this is to flash or update the firmware of this router then after that reset the router by pressing the reset button for about 15 seconds so the firmware update will take effect....
