I tried to restart my router to factory settings by how the manual told me to do it. I pressed the reset button for 10 seconds. Then i lost internet. My power light is on not blinking, my status and WAN light is constantly blinking. My WLAN light is not even on, Now i use the cd it gives me and it tells me to wait until the lights are stable but they never are. I close the power and plug it back in and the the power/WAN/WLAN/and ports 1-4 lights are on not blinking and i cant even use the router to go online. Help please

As far as I am aware, the only way to reset the pin, is to reset the router to factory defaults. You will then have to reconfigure your wireless settings. To reset to factory defaults:
Plug in the router.
1. Locate the small reset button. It is next to the power jack.
2. Use something to push the button, a paper clip works well.
3.Hold the reset switch down for 10 seconds.
4. Wait for the WLAN light to stop blinking. The router is now reset.
To reconfigure the settings on the router, enter 192.168.0.1 into your browser address bar.
ALL YOU CAN DO IS TO RESET THE ROUTER TO FACTORY SETTINGS yOu may reset router to factory setting from the reset button on the
back side of the router. use a paper pin to press the button for few
seconds, the lights on the from would blink and the router would
restart with factory setting. Please not that ALL SETTING WOULD BE
LOST...AND YOU WOULD HAVE TO MAKE CONFIGURATIONS AND SETTING ALL OVER AGAIN
try doing a factory reset on the router - you will need to know all the settings in the router as these will be needed to be re-entered
button or hole on the back labelled reset , hold the button - or using a untwisted paperclip in the hole - for 10secs The router will now be reset
The final solution is a factory reset of your router. You can do a factory reset by logging into the router using you browser. Go to the settings and perform a factory reset
If you forgot the router password, you ill have to do a factory reset by locating a small hold on the back of the router and insert the tip of of paper clip for about 10 seconds while the power is on. The router will be reset to out of box status and then you can ssets-up form scratch.
Let's try to first fully reset your router to factory settings to see if we can get rid of any bad settings that may be causing issues. I borrowed all of the following from the technicallyeasy.net walkthroughs already written about:
To reset your router, use the following steps:
Press the reset button for 10 seconds. You can use a small object, such as a paper clip to hold down the button.
Do not power off the unit while the router is being reset. The unit should now reboot, and once the WLAN light stops blinking the router should be reset.
(Added by me) Plug your laptop directly into one of the ethernet ports on the back of the router with a standard CAT5e or CAT6 patch cable
Open up your Web browser and enter 192.168.0.1 in the address bar.
For the login, enter admin as the ID and leave the password blank.

Router needs a hard reset.

First thing you do is
set your wireless setup in your computer to the same, i.e. no security. Test if there is
connection, if, the start with the setup from the top, beginning with admin
Reset the DI-524 to its factory default settings and restore the other devices on your network to their default settings. You may do this by pressing the Reset button on the back of the unit. You will lose the current configuration settings. Also be sure to unplug the modem the plug it back in afterwards, a reboot of all devices on network maybe good idea also.
The following is for the DI-514, DI-524, DI-604, DI-614+, DI-624, DI-624S, DI-754, DI-764, DI-774, and DI-784 routers.
To perform a reset, please follow steps below:
Step 1 With the unit on, place a paper clip into the hole on the back on the unit labeled Reset.
Step 2 Hold paper clip down for 10 seconds and release.
Note: Do not repower unit during this procedure.
Step 3 The unit will reboot on its own. Once the WLAN light stops blinking, the unit is reset.
Resetting the router does not reset the firmware to an earlier version. It will change all settings back to factory defaults.
If you have the European version of this router, this procedure may not work. Please consult the D-Link office near you. D-Link USA does not support the European version.
