I was adding an apple airport modem/base station to network, and I disabled the dhcp on my previously working di-524. Now I can't get to the di-524 configuration through browser with the previous ip address. How do I configure/or access the di-524 to turn dhcp back on?

Re: disabled dhcp, cant access router with browser
The default ipaddress for that is 192.168.0.1 you will need to set your computer with a ip address like 192.168.0.2 then you should be able to access it. be sure to change your computer back to DHCP after you reset the router

First time you should connect an Ethernet cable to the AirPort, and set it up with the software it came with. Then take a note of the wireless network's name (SSID) and the password (you might want to chance them to your personal preference though), security youre using (WEP, WPA, or WPA2)
I got the Bravia KDL-40EX713 and the uwa-br100 I had massive problems getting it to work with a BT home hub. Eventually I found manual setting that work. Firstly I logged on to the router and went the the advanced settings bit, then I went to the DHCP table that shows all the devices connected. I picked an unused Ip address from the range of existing ones being used (this sort of thing 192.168.1.73)
I then used the following settings for the other fields (I don't think the secondary dns setting is right but it still works)
sn mask 255.255.255.0
default gateway 192.168.1.254
primary dns 192.168.1.254
secondary dns 192.168.22.23
If the DNS server ip is wrong then you get local access OK but internet access failed.
You need to perform a soft reset of your router. There directions to do this from the Apple web site are:
Connect the AirPort Base Station or Time Capsule to power.
Press and hold the reset button with a pen or pencil for 1 full second, then release it. The light (LED) will begin flashing amber, indicating that the AirPort Base Station or Time Capsule is in soft reset mode.
From the AirPort menu bar item, choose the network created by the AirPort Base Station or Time Capsule (the network name does not change).
Open AirPort Utility in Applications > Utilities on a Mac using Mac OS X, and in Start > All Programs > AirPort on a computer using Windows.
Select the AirPort Base Station or Time Capsule and click Continue.
A window indicating that the device has been reset will appear.
Select "Restore the previous settings" and select OK.
Move through subsequent windows to make changes to your passwords or other settings as desired, clicking Continue after each one.
When you have moved through all of the selection windows you will be able to select Update. Click Update to install the new settings.
Click Continue to allow your AirPort Base Station or Time Capsule to restart.
. you will need the "airport " networking gear 2. If you have a base station you need to connect this to your router or modem with an Ethernet cord ( RJ45) 3. Connect the base to the MAC pc Ethernet port. 4.connect the base station power and look for the power light to go on. 5.Open MAC applications folder then the "utilities " sub folder. 6. Double click the "airport utility icon" 7. Base station on the left of the screen ( click) then choose "continue". 8. if not on the left of the screen then select "setup a new station" then click "continue . 9. enter password for the base station ( write it down) keep it . click "continue". 10. next select create and new wireless network 11. create a name for the connection 12. then select "WPA" for the security then type in a password 13Next .make a selection for either a router or modem the click "continue. 14. next select DHCP the click continue 15.Verified then click "continue" then wait for the restart of the base station. 16. You should see "congratulations" then click "quit"
Basically Time capsule is same as Airport extreme base station added with a hard drive to take wireless backup.Put same Network Name and password in both Time capsule and airport base station.Suppose your are making TC as a primary base station and Airport extreme as a secondary base station. Select WDS in both the base stations .In "Wireless Mode" select"Participate in WDS network" in both the base stations.Dont change rest of the options.Put TC Mac id to Extreme base station and extreme Mac ID to TC.now open the airport option in your laptop and check.you can see a single network name.Its DONE.Njoy using wireless
OK, do you have the latest version of Apple's Airport Utility: Version 5.4.1 (541.9) ?
If you don't, get it... it's got an excellent interface that will walk you through bridging two wireless routers together.
Once you get your hands on it, you will need to choose which airport will be the primary and which will be the secondary. Ideally, pick the one connected to the highest speed and most reliable internet access.
Connect to the secondary airport and configure it as bridge to the primary, the Airport Utility will walk you through it step by step.
Using the Airport utility on your macbook (located in your Utilities folder) will tell you what the conflict is.....most likely you have DHCP issue or the network is at the incorrect setting. The wizard in the utility will tell you what you should fix.
