Go to control panel>network connections, right click, then properties, then click the TCP/IP line, properties again and ensure that 'obtain ip address automatically' is ticked, click ok,  then close down the window, right click on the network icon again and then properties, then view wireless connections.


Any that appear in this list including your own if it shows need to be deleted, then when you close the window a pop up should appear in the task bar saying wireless networks detected, click the bubble then highlight your connection, click connect and if security is turned on you will be prompted to enter the passkey.


In the routers settings ensure that DHCP is enabled to allocate ip addresses automatically, then reboot the router if neccasary.

If you can connect to the internet using the Ethernet cable on your laptop then the cable modem is configured correctly.
If you want to connect to the Internet using the D-Link wireless router then first you need to configure the D-Link wireless settings and then configure the wireless card in your laptop with the D-Link's wireless settings. Remove the Ethernet from the laptop and connect it to the WAN/Internet port on the D-Link wireless router.

Make sure that every setting in the new laptop matches the settings in the router. If one setting is off, you will not get a connection. It is also possible that the router is set to only allow specific computers to connect to it. If that is the case you will have to add the new laptop to the allowed connections in the wireless settings of the router.

Dlink di-524 connect to RV042


You need to cascade the Dlink wireless router to your RV042.

Suppose your RV042 has a default IP Address of, and the DLINK IP uses Your Physical connection is from the regular port of the RV042 going to the WAN/Internet Port of the DLink wireless router.

Once you do that, your Dlink router should automatically obtain an IP from the main router. If it did, configure your wireless settings and you should be able to connect via wireless.

This is just one way to cascade your router to another router.

Connecting a DI-524 to a DI-604

This shouldn't really be any problem simply use a short "Uplink" ethernet cable to join the routers thru the uplink port, or any port really, and that way ya should be able to wifi and access the net, set ya router that connects to the net for DCHP and disable that setting in the Wifi router and ya should be good to go?
