Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router

1 Answer

D-Link D!-524 My problem went from bad to much worse. I can no longer use the router. I have my labtop directly connected to the surfboard. Lets see if I can repeat what I did. Downloaded instructions. Great Thank You. Then I went on line w/ the IP address and started reading. I found the place where it sd enable the wep so I checked that box. Then it told me i changed the configuration and I would need to delete it from my favorites. OK. The encription was done. Great. Then it asked me to enter a key to be able to access??? I didn't have a key. Next I stuck a paper clip in the router to reset. I then tried setting up with the wizzard. Dsconnected power to modum and board several times. I will get a wireless connection. but not to the board? I messed up big time. I shouldn't have messed with it. Any thoughts?

I need to know what operating system your are using. You have to delete all of the old connections you have made and if it is a windows based system that would be in the internet protcols properties. if you see the tab advanced setting press that and then select let windows configure wireless setting, then on top again you will see wireless settings tab select that, in the middle of that box select each of the connections and delete each until there all gone. apply and close that box. Use paper clip to reset you wireless router, restart your computer and then your router everything should work fine now. You should be able to go into you routers settings if you need an access number again It will be a 26 digit Number it will be found under your wireless connections in your setting for you router. Hey If this Don't work we can set up a chat on messenger or something so its free I am not gettting paid for this so I can help you.

I have two desktops and one laptop on my di-524. One desktop no longer connects. The others are fine. Is this a router or adapter problem? I tried a d-link 'stick' but after working for one day, it no...

One desktop and 1 laptop are working that means your router must be working.

1 desktop is not working. Is that wired to the router or wireless ?

If it is wired then check the light on the router, If your computer is connected to port 1 of the router then port 1 light should lit up. If the light is not lit up then check the connection.
If the light is lit up then check the IP address on the computer.

If it is wireless desktop then check the wireless connection.

The internet from the wireless router won't work

does your laptop show an active connection? many routers are secured and you need to enter the wep key(located on a stick on the router) into your laptop as you make the initial connection for the first time.

No internet Connection

this is something simple
2 things you will have to do

the router when a problem like this happens again
unplug router for 1 minute this is packet build up and then plug back in i found this out by service provider that its a build up of packets it relieves packets

now the other thing since you went threw all the little areas of trying to reset modem go in remove your network connection
delete it and build a new network connection threw the network setup wizard then your done restart comp everything should be back to normal and you wont have to ever reset network settings again
just unplug the router let sit for minute and plug back in

D-link 524 router not working

Double check that you are connected to your router and not a neighbors router.

Connection to internet doesnt work

Your ISP has specific requirements for connecting a router to their equipment. For some the default router settings connect successfully. Some Telcos require PPPoE logins to access the network, you may either be given a static IP address or be required to accept a dynamic IP address. You need to determine from your ISP often from a help website, a chat with a technician or phone support what those requirements are. Another possibility is failure to include DNS addresses either in the router or in the network adapter's IP configuration.

No signal

If this model has a antenna, check its connecting with the router. Try resetting the router. Also some labtops have a worse signal reception strenght when they are not plugged in, so try plugging it in if you havent already.
