Disabled dhcp, cant access router with browser


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?

Thanks for your help!

Re: disabled dhcp, cant access router with browser

The default ipaddress for that is you will need to set your computer with a ip address like then you should be able to access it. be sure to change your computer back to DHCP after you reset the router

How do i get green light in apple modem

Since we have no idea what modem you have, it's hard to say, but generally, a hard reset on a cable modem does NOT require it be re-provisioned, Comcast will simply repush the bootfile to it the next time it connects.
I'm not sure what you mean about the Airport Utility not detecting the Airport Extreme but it is showing up in the utility. If it's listed, it must have been detected...
The light flashing amber in the front means several different things depending on exact pattern, see the Apple site for exact details. Most common, no Internet connection because the AEX can't get a DHCP lease on its WAN connection. Have you properly reset your cable modem? You don't say what it is, so it's hard to be precise here. If a regular cable modem simply remove the power cable for a few seconds and let it reboot. If an EMTA with phone jacks press and hold the Reset button until the modem reboots.
The other common cause is the AEX has detected it needs a firmware upgrade. In this situtation, the router will work, but you should update the firmware using the Airport Utility.

How did you connect the computer to the router. If you are using a DSL modem it will have a DHCP server in it that is allocating IP addresses across your network. If you added the router to the computer via a hub or network switch what is the computers ip .
address. Remove the WI FI router - turn off P.C and then Go to cmd or dos prompt if windows based system and type in ipconfig and press enter to see if ip addresses are if they are your dlink router uses so you need to make the dlink router ip addressand subnet setting to match the Modem ip addresses of the DHCP server. Change the ip address of the dlink router to be and change the modem to allocate DHCP IP addresses from to Only do this if IP addresses are 10,0,0,1 to 10.0.0.,254 on the desktop p.c with the dsl or cable modem connected.without the router being involved. (you may need to ask the ISP what the user name and password is of the modem and it should be ip address xx.xx.xx.1 so type this into a browser to change the modem settings. or just remember if the modem is so is the Wi router from d-link and you will have an ip clash problem)
. How do you do this by ethernet connection from only the desktop directly with only the Wi FI . router. Go to a internet browser and type in the URL and then change the router ip address to match what the DSL modem DHCP issues..
Page 14 of Router instructions see
in the manual it states to use a direct ethernet connection for the setup program but you need to be connected to the internet for it to work but if the IP addresses are wrong or clashing will have no internet. You also want to set the modem as the DCHP server and disable the DHCP server in the set up of the wi fi tand set the WI FI router default gateway as the ip address of the Modem. if any DHCP server options in the WI FI router sert to the modem ip address. .

When I connect my router i lose internet connection, even though my modem still shows connectivity. I have followed the instructions to connect the router to my computer and the modem to the router. Any...

firstly, connect your modem to the router and your pc to the router. Next, reboot your PC. try to access the net. If you now can, great. If not, you may need to switch on DHCP and NAT in your modem. DHCP means Dynamic Host Control Protocol and NAT means Network Address Translation. Both of these services are required to allow your PC to access the net through your router. I am assuming that you have a modem and a separate network switch. If you have a modem and the router is another modem with a network switch built in, then you cannot use them both at the same time. If the router has a modem built in, remove your old modem and set up the router according to its manual. Entering your ISP login details either through the routers setup software or through the routers own browser page. The manual for the router will tell you how to do this. If the router is a netwrok switch, then you will need to log into your modems browser page and turn on DHCP and NAT. Then save and reboot the modem and reboot your PC. Once everything has rebooted, go into your control panel, Network connections and check that a valid connection has been made. If yes, then access the net using your browser. If no, try the Network Setup Wizard to repair or replace the existing setup with an updated one. Just run through the wizard choosing the correct or most appropriate options from the menu's..
