D-Link Wireless router managment problem

Logging in and management of the router settings using the PC ethernet connx'n is very slow. The same tasks using a laptop through the wireless ports is virtually instantaneous.
I've tried swapping the port and a different cat5 cable to no effect.
I haven't yet checked or updated the firmware as this carries some risk.
Can you please speculate what may be causing the really slow response(over 1 minute to fully load a router management page) that is evident when using an ethernet port, but not when using wireless?

Re: D-Link Wireless router managment problem

You should have tried the followings to eliminate some possibilities:

* Hard reset your router by using a niddle or something to press the botton on the back or underneath of your router.

* Use another laptop or desktop to access the management interface, see if it's getting better, or back to normal

* If you familiar with the Terminal funciton in windows system, you can revive your router even you got it bricked by upgrade the firmware.

My router is password enable before but no its not,how can i make it passsword enable again?i know my password

Here are some basic steps in setting up your Linksys router

Hope it helps!

Please follow the below instructions to protect your device:

  1. Connect your computer to the router using a network cable, or you can connect to the router through a wireless connection. Note that your wireless card in your computer must be enabled.
  2. Open your Web browser. Enter: in the address field. This is an internal IP address to access your router. Press the Enter Key.
  3. When the password request appears leave the user name field blank. By default, the password is admin.
  4. After logging in, you are not required to change the default administrative password. However, it's fully recommended that you change the default password by clicking on the Administration tab and Management. Enter a new password in the Password field and again in the Re-enter field to confirm.
  5. I recommend setting the Remote Management item as Disable. It will be another layer of security for your router. With this configuration you can only access your router for programming using a standard Ethernet network cabling.
  6. To save the new password, click Save Settings at the bottom of the page.
  7. To avoid intruders accessing your wireless connection we'll start to work with the Wireless tab.
  8. In the Basic Wireless Settings enter a name for your wireless network connection in the Wireless Network Name (SSID). Set the Wireless Broadcast to Disable.

    When wireless clients survey the local area for wireless networks to associate with, they will detect the SSID broadcast by the Router if the Broadcast is enabled. Do not broadcast the Router SSID. It must be Disabled.

    Note that your SSID should be set following similar rules for setting a password, e.g. at least 8 characters, a combination of letters, numbers and non consecutive characters.

    Disabling the SSID broadcast is not a strong security setting, but it can help prevent intruders from sharing your WLAN. Remember to save your settings.

How do i set up password to keep anyone from using my wireless connection

Turn the unit on and open a browser window on your computer. Be sure that you've selected the Name of the router, default is linksys, as the network that your computer is connected to. Browse to the Admin page of the router by typing in its IP address, default is You should see a logon screen. The unit should ship with a default password, which is admin. That is, you leave the username field blank and type the word 'admin' (no quotes) into the password field. (Once you are logged in, you can change the password for logging into the router thru Administration --> Management. You should see a two boxes to verify the new password that you would like to create.) For creating a password for the secure Wireless connection, go to Wireless --> Wireless Security. To set up the Wireless security, tho, I think you'll have to connect with an ethernet cable. You can then walk thru the setup. Use WPA2 as the security, if possible.

You'll need to reset your router to its factory default condition, then re-enter your configuration information (ie, set a new wireless password, etc.).

Use a paperclip or similar item to (while the router is on) depress the "Reset" switch on the back of the router, hold it for 10 seconds, then release. This will reset it so you can reconfigure it as if it was new using the web interface.

Hope that's helpful.

Cant find Security Key

To find the Wireless security key you have to login to your wireless router's control panel.

Disconnect your modem and other devices from your wireless router and connect your laptop/PC to your wireless router through ethernet port ( keep your ip settings to automatic in network settings of your Laptop/PC) then type the ip number in your web browser's address bar.

Here you are you will get the login page of your router.Default login id is "admin" and password is "password" if this password is wrong then try with the password "admin".

After logging into the page you will find the wireless security that you can find your security key.

Losing wireless connection after logging off

Log off? Not turn off?
Does the wireless work after you reboot?
If you log off but keep the computer powered it may be a power management issue.
Some network adapters have a setting to allow windows to turn them off to save power.
Go to the Device Manager, right click on the wireless adapter and select Properties.
Is there a Power Management tab? If so, click on it and remove the check mark from "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power".

Problem withD-Link DI524

Hi Darren-N,

Please excuse some silly question in order to help you.

1- did you connect this router to the adsl/cable modem?
2- does the ISP require you to clone the ethernet MAC address?
3- did you connect the modems ethernet port to the correct port on the router?
4- Is the router seeing an active link to the modem?
5- Is the router configured to be the DNS server or is this disabled.
6- did you enable any MAC filtering or enable any other security features?
7- If it's connected to an ADSL modem through ethernet, does the modem require a keep link alive/active ping so that it does not drop the link?
8- Does the PC the router is connected to have a firewall, if so this might be the problem.

Please describe the set up in as much detail.

Not pickin up signal

Upgrading the firmware (which forced a software reset) solved a similar problem I had with an SMC router. Have you tried logging into your router via an ethernet cable and doing a software reset? If you try this, be sure you have all the information you need to set up your wireless network again because the reset will wipe out all this information.
