Question about D-Link (DI-784) Wireless Router

Di524 works wireless connection works when connected by cable too, but not without the cable

Hi Gurus,

My di524 works fine wirelessly for my home desktop.
My work laptop hangs on aquiring ip-adress.
Then I get a limited or no connection status after recieving a few packages.

When I plug in the cable to the di 524 the wireless connection starts to work too.

On the desktop there is no fixed ip-address, our ISP is based on dynamic adressing.
However my laptop has a static adress at my work network for server  access reasons.

Is there some conflict in xp-configuration and di 524 settings?

At work the external wireless connection works fine even when lan is disabled.

Is there some di 524 configuring that I could do to solve the problem.

By the way, I use wpa security.

I would be thankful for any hint on the matter.

try re-installing the driver for your USB adapter or create a new wireless network name.

Di524 secure connection

You just need to access the router setup page and when you're already on the router setup page, just look for MTU and set it to manual and set the size to 1400 don't forget to save the settings after changing that and try again to access the banking web site and that should be working fine already.....

Call drop out after 5mins 30 secs

Hi Youradickhead, I have experienced similar problems previously with Telstra and it was not due to the D-link as far as could verify. It seemed to me that Telstra was able to detect that you were using your internet connection for phone conversations and drop your line. Alternatively it may have to do with the filters that they provide. Try it without the filter, i.e. connect your modem cable straight into the socket (cable port).

Server not found} NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router doesn't connect me to the internet.

Dear Loud Nouises,

Your router must be connected properly to the cable modem. This must be to the wan port on the router.

Next, the router must be set-up accordingly to recognize the modem's internet connections. Please ask for the IP address.. and other relevant informations from your internet provider.

Set -up your computer using the internet connections wizard on each of your respective computer.

This should work fine if all connections were correctly configured.
