I unplugged my DI-524 about 3 weeks ago when we had a problem with our DSL modem. Got new modem and finally found software for router (AT&T had me reset router) and when I went to start up router, the power light does not come on. Any suggestions short of buying a new router? Did not find any on/off switch.Manuel says to plug or unplug.Thanks....Rod

Re: no power for DI-524
Have you tried the reset feature, small button near the power port.
Hold it down for thirty seconds with the unit unplugged. If that doesn't work you may need to buy a new router as something may have failed some time ago and just not been noticed until it was turned off.
Try the reset, but I suspect whatever killed your modem likely killed the router at the same time.

When you say your rebooted the modem and router, do you mean you power cycled them both? If you're unfamiliar with power cycling, this the technique: 1) Unplug your main Cable or DSL line from your modem. 2) Unplug the power from the modem. 3) Unplug the power from the router. 4) Wait about 20 seconds. 5) Plug the Cable or DSL line into the modem. 6) Plug the power into the modem. 7) Plug the power into the router.
Make sure that all computers are shut down and completely off. After you have power cycled, reboot the computer(s). If you still do not see the SSID (the name of the network), then someone probably hacked into your router and changed the password. Here's how to overcome that:
1) Unplug the power from the router. 2) Press and hold the Reset button on the router for at least 30 seconds.
3) Plug the power into the router. 4) Open an internet browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.). 5) Type in the IP address of your router. For this router the IP address should be 192.168.0.1 6) You should be at a login window. The User Name is admin and leave the password blank. 7) You should now be in your router's configuration options. You should enable the highest security possible, then change the default User Name and Password to something secure, with letters and numbers.
My information for you router came from this link:
OK, if I understand:
telephone----DSL Modem--di 524--computer.
That is what you are supposed to do.
Has any configuration of these devices ever had any connectivity?
1. Is the DSL modem in "Bridge Mode"? That is the first thing I'd check.
2. Are you using the right wires and ports? There may be a DCE-DTE problem. Be sure you have used the wire that came with the DSL modem to hook it to the internet port on the DI-524.
3. What is the state of all the various lights? Do they show that you have valid connections?
4. Most of these devices can be configured with a browser. When you browse them, what do you see?
5. What is windows telling you?
* Is DHCP configured correctly?
* Connect your server and laptop to a switch (not directly with the cable)
* Can they ping each other?
* Check that the firewall is configured (or switched off if you have another FW in place)
* Default gateway should be your router, not the computers (until you have configured RRAS for example)
As Joed said, try resetting your router. This can be done by unplugging the device and pressing in a normally small, recessed button on the very rear of the device or on the bottom, which ought to be held in for a period of 5-10 seconds.
If you are still not able to contact the router afterward, please respond so we may continue to assist you.
I'm assuming if you've been given a username/password you've either got DSL (a PPPoE connection) or it's for your email address. If you don't have a disc for your new router, you can configure it through a wired connection to the router (using an ethernet cable). That's a bit of work but if you need to do it that way we can help. Otherwise run the CD that came with the router (again, you'll need a computer plugged into it) and the step-by-step should get you through it.
For starters, unplug the modem and then plug the cable running from the old router into the same port space in the new router (should say either WLAN or Uplink). Turn on the modem, wait 30 seconds, then power on the router. After that run the disc and you should be good.
After you've rebooted your wireless router...make sure you reboot the cable-company (or DSL) modem while the router is connected to it and on. The modem seems to recognize the router properly only in this way.
Simply unplug the power to the cable-modem and plug it in again.
If the cable-modem has a battery back-up you'll want to remove that as well.
make sure you have the wireless lan activated(software/hardware) and also configure your router's wireless setting(connecting thelaptop to the router by ethernet cable).write the wireless configuration down and configure your laptop with the same SSID and WEP key.it shud connect and you shud able to be good to goo..don'tforget to configure your DSL to therouter.post your router/modem/ISP details for further help
