Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-714P+ (DI714P) 802.11b

1 Answer

DI-714P+ I still have this dinosaur (circa 2002) and am contemplating getting a new router, probably Linksys. In the meanwhile, my wife moved the router and now the network doesn't work anymore. I have no idea what cables she unplugged and she doesn't either. After 5 years of successful use, I can only get my main computer on the internet. I'm not sure about how to connect the Ethernet plugs in the back to get my laptop on the internet. Can you help?

Re: DI-714P+

Generally for your wired machines assuming your internet connection starts at the

phone wire coming out of a jack or the
cable company's cable.

Either of those connect to a modem device

An ethernet cable from the modem device connects to either

a computer as you have not
the WAN port of the router (very seldon the LAN side)

additional computers can connect to the
LAN ports of the router (often a block of 4)

I have linksys 2.4 ghz + one 12' line. My new computer is in another room, 32 feet from cable modem how do I connect to internet?

I'm assuming that one computer isn't wife enabled. Depending on where the non wifi computer is located in relation to the router, you will need another either patch cable or a wifi adapter.

M1 light is solid and I can not access internet or my router settings

Check the Access restrictions on the router. The page will be similar to this You will probably have this on your browser as In the list of PCs, verify that there are no IP ranges or Mac addresses that apply to your laptop.
If there are restrictions then clear them. If there are no restrictions, then the problem will be with your laptop and not the router.
Test this by connecting your laptop to your router with an ethernet cable. Switch off the wireless on your laptop (varies by model) and see if you can connect with your wired network. You should see the router at as before, and if all is well you will see the internet.
If you do not see the internet, then there is a problem with your networking setup. Perhaps you are using manual settings instead of DHCP? Ensure that you use DHCP for registering an IP address.

We have a router so that we can have wireless connections in the upstairs of our house. The connection shuts off every 20 min or so. Do you know a solution?

Have you tried moving the computer upstairs to a different place to get the best signal ?
What is the signal strenth?
Have you tried moving the router to a different position?
If your signal strength is quite weak, you may need to get a more powerfull router, like this one
they are about twice as expensive.

Want to change password for LinkSys Wireless Router. Also want to make outgoing information secure.

If you have forgotten the username/password for the router you can reset it by pushing and holding reset button for 15 seconds.

Then following the steps here:

The later pages describe how to configure security and change your password.

If you are new to wireless I suggest selecting WEP or WPA-PSK.

Wireless router connection problems

Assuming "cannot connect to linksys router directly" means you cannot connect to a Wireless Lan managed by Linksys router,
1) try to connect new computer to LinkSys Router using a Lan cable, add new PC to your network.
2) recover protocol (WEP or WPA) and Key of WLAN (Passphrase or Key: TKIP or AES) either from other PC on same network either from your Router.
3) If you missed actual key you must connect to router and reset it to a new key to be eventually used for every connected device.
Call for detail on this possibility

Trying to instal wireless router

Hi Jwsgrl,

Did you buy the router new or used?

if used it might still have the old user settings on it that sometimes requires MAC addy's to be registered on the wireless access point site ( If this is the case then hit the restart button while the router is on to default all settings.

the default login and pw for linksys is:
User Name: admin
Password: admin

You probably already have it set up since you followed the instructions but it never hurts to mention:
1. Make sure that your modems Ethernet line is connected to your wireless router Ethernet port, then using the 1 of 4 open jacks on the router connect #1 to your computers Ethernet Pprt.

let me know how i can assist you further.
