Re: cant connect

Hi purplegarion,


hook up the router per instruction in manual and your particular internet connection.  With the Di524 powered up, use the end of a paperclip to depress the reset button located in a little hole beside the power connection.   open internet explorer and type in and press enter.  The password is admin. once th screen appears, click on Wizard.  Follow the wizards directions carefully.  

For simplicity of security click on the wireless button while in the  wireless screen.  Set radio to on.  Enter a SSID like purplegarion. Set to open system.  Set Security to WEP.  Wep to HEX.  64bit.  Enter into Key one a 10 digit number you can remember like 1234567890.  Click apply.  Change your password to a personal password other than ADMIN.   

Any device that attaches will need to enter the WEP 64 Bit hex Security key 1234567890, or whatever 10 digit number you put in the router. 

Internet connection will require powering down you modem, and the DI-524 router.  power up the modem first and let it go through the start up, then power up thte DI 524.  you may need to make sure your DHCP is set to Automatically assign an IP address.

Changed from DSL, to cable no router connection

1. You need to make sure that you have a "straight through" cable and not a "crossover".
2. the yellow cable that your cable company provided is the cable that goes from the rj45 wall connector to the "WLAN" connector in the back of the router.
If you go to router manufacturers site you will find the instruction how to to connect your router to the cable modem.
3. check also the firmware updates for your router at this site and download.
4.Use your setup disk and follow the instruction set for cable also. This should walk you through the proper setup .
YOu didn't provide the model number of your router, I would have given you the setup site for your particular router.
You can go to D-Link's site and download the PDF instruction also.

Setup and confifuration of my linksys befsr41 ver 2 router

Since you did not include your exact model number and type of internet provider I cannot give you more specific instructions. Although you can refer to the links below on how to set it up. If you require further assistance just reply to this and give me the model number of your ISP and the model of your router. Also answer this question " When you plug your computer to your modem do you get online automatically or do you need a username and password"

Router problem

The router may not be configured yet that's why you cannot connect to the Internet after connecting your computer to the router. You may click on these links for instructions on how to configure the router depending on the type of your Internet provider.

For DSL connection:

For Cable connection:

If the Internet connection still did not work, let me know of the following:

- Internet Service Provider
- model number of the router
- brand or model number of the modem
- operating system of the computer

Router cant b found

Locate the reset button on the rear of the router.
Should be below the antenna and recessed use a paper clip or similar to hold in for 10 secs.
This will reset the router back to factory defaults.
Type in into your browser and you should get the routers setup page. Click the login button, no password is required. You can set this up yourself once in the router setup.
Be aware this router is NOT on the Xbox live supported list.
Check link below for supported Live Routers.
If you have only bought thi recently get it swapped out if you cannot connect to live once reset.
Let me know how you get on.

I know you are looking for some software from D-Link If you follow these instructions I believe you can find what you want. However G54 is not a valid model on this site please check your device to determine a more accurate model number

Click Support

Click United States

Click Product Information If your model number is on the page click it
If you model number is not on the page
Click here (between the gray and blue bars at the top) The instructions stop here and you are on your own ----You probably want to look for the corrected name for the G54 now
AS AN EXAMPLE the steps below will lookup the DI-514 in the heading of this message
Under Broadband2.gif, Under Routers2.gif, Click DI-514

Use the pictures2.gif to Choose the correct revision matching the label on the bottom of the router2.gif.

(Note sometimes international models appear near the top without a picture2.gif but with a link)

If not international choose A, B, C Click on picture that matches

The resulting page contains the manual, quick start guide, firmware, how-tos, etc,
