Question about D-Link DI 514 Wireless Router (DI-514)

1 Answer

Lost internet connection?toasted router?

My cable modem only works when it is directly connected to my PC. When I network the di-514 router through the modem and two computers, the internet connection is lost. 
Any suggestions? I've checked and re-checked all my connections and have done the reset thing, so I'm almost certain it's toast–hopefully not.

You will need to create your PPPOE internet connection on the router using your ISP username and password, access the router by opening internet explorer and type in the ip address of the router (example) > the router logon window will appear, use the username " leave blank" and the password "admin" -or- username "admin" with password 1234. Go into internet connections Select PPPOE connection enter your ISP username and password. restart the router and computer this should establish your internet connection. BPCS

I can see the network but I can't connect to the internet

If you connect the computer directly to the modem, it works. That means the modem and the Internet is working but the router is not working.
I believe you can try to reset the router and reconfigure the router.
Open the setup page of the router and change the settings manually according to the Internet service provider.
May be you will also need to upgrade the firmware of the router.

No ip address

Many people need to connect additional computers or game consoles. To do this, most use a home network router, which shares a single IP address across multiple computers. No special configuration of your Shaw service or modem is required.

For information on how to configure a home network, consult the manufacturer's documentation included with the hub or router you have purchased.

  • Access the router configuration page.
  • Set the router to use Cable as Internet connection type.

Router connection problem

you will not see your router in any of the places you looked.
Easiest method:
Shutdown your PC and laptops. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC and laptops. The PC and laptops should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line. This is if you have a cable service provider.

Modem and wireless not talking

If u r inside a wireless network and internet is ok, u will able to ping both the wireless router gateway and modem gateway. If u cant ping the modem gateway, u can try connect the modem directly to your pc, and test again. U need to make sure the modem is OK, and able to connect to internet. Then only u move to check router. This is due to very often internet access having problem.

Try the DSL modem directly connected to the PC.No D-Link Router(powered off and disconnected). Verify that the PCcould surf/browse/connect to the Internet. Go to Start, Control Panel,Network Connections, right click Local Area Connection, Properties,scroll down to/highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), Properties button.Get the IP Add, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and DNS assigned to the PC(write this down. This will be your WAN/Internet IP settings). Then Disable DHCP of your modem if it has one. OK, close, save or whatever is applicable.

Disconnect the DSL modem from the PC. Connect D-Link Router to PC (wired/LAN) without the modem connected to the router.Go again to Start, Control Panel, Network Connections, right clickLocal Area Connection, Properties, scroll down to/highlight InternetProtocol(TCP/IP), Properties button. Tick "Use the following IPaddress". Enter this IP Add, Subnet Mask255.255.255.0,Default Gateway and the DNS from what youhave written down earlier). This will be your LAN IP settings. OK,close, save or whatever is applicable.

Open a browser and log into the D-Link router (, using "admin" as a username and no password). Do not run Wireless Network Setup Wizard. In WAN/Internet/Modem setting of router enable/check Static IP Add.Usethe IP numbers previously assigned to PC that you have written down asthe router's WAN/Internet/Modem IP settings.

How to connect wireless router to adsl router?

You're wanting to connect the directly connect the DI-514 to the ASDL modem to give you a wireless network, right? If so here's what you do:
Connect an ethernet line from the modem to the Internet/Wan port of your DI-514 and then you're set. I recommend you then follow the directions in the manual to setup wireless security.

If you're wanting to have your DI-514 wirelessly connect to the ASDL modem, then connect your PC to one of the LAN ports of the DI-514 and open the administrative web interface (usually located at and go to the wireless section and select "Wireless Client" and input the MAC of the ASDL modem's wireless interface (you can find this on the administration web interface of the ASDL modem) and you should be good to go.
