Re: d-link 524 looses conection

Check the timeout when idle settings on the router. you need to set it to 0 for never break the connection.

other options are to upgrade the firmware of the router.

you should also isolate the problem by connecting the pc directly to the modem to make sure the same problem doesnt occur. if it does then contact your isp.

good luck

I just conected my DI-524 with a new cable modem

The first question is whether your change of service provider really has any connection with your new lack of range. If your new cable modem contains a wireless router, it's possible it is interfering with your old router. You only need one, so in that case you should remove your DLink and configure your wireless cable router to your satisfaction. Otherwise, you may have coincidentally picked up a new source of interference; you may want to change the channel on your DLink router to see if that improves your range. The third possibility is that your DLink radio is going sour with age -- it happens -- and may simply need replacement.

I have a dir 300 router that when i try to hook it up it i cant

 Let me clarify this  your internet works when your PC is hooked up directly to the modem....
When you connect the router between the pc and the modem the internet does not work....
This sounds like the configuration settings inside the router need to be setup or adjusted. 
Go to the web browser and type in and for the username type admin and then leave the password blank hit enter and it should sign you into the router. Follow the setup wizard and everything should work just fine. 
Hope it Helps!

My D-link DI-524 Wireless router not working.

g´day m8,  
Your D-Link AirPlus G DI-524 Wireless Router needs a hard reset.

Log in to your router, go to -> administration -> factory default -> Restore Factory Defaults: =  "yes"
Then save settings.

You have now reset the router.

First thing you do is set your wireless setup in your computer to the same, i.e. no security.
Test if there is connection, if, the start with the setup from the top, beginning with admin password.

Configuring D-Link DI-524 router with airtel beetel 110bx1

Make sure you can go online directly to the airtel broadband. If internet works fine, connect the D-Link router to the Beetle. That should be going to the Internet port or WAN port of the D-link. Then your PC to port 1. Try to power cycle both devices now. Unplug the power to the router first then to the modem. Wait for 30 seconds. Power on modem first, wait for the lights to go solid, then power on the router. Check if the internet works fine hardwired. If it is, wireless should work as well. Just connect to the signal coming from the D-link.

DI 524 Connection Problem


Try the DSL modem directly connected to the PC.No D-Link Router (powered off and disconnected). Verify that the PC couldsurf/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 click Local AreaConnection, Properties, scroll down to/highlight Internet Protocol(TCP/IP), Properties button. Tick "Use the following IP address". Enter this IP Add, Subnet Mask,Default Gateway and the DNS from what you have written down earlier). This willbe 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.Use the IP numbers previously assigned to PC that you have writtendown as the router's WAN/Internet/Modem IP settings. OK, close, save or whatever is applicable. Rebootrouter. Connect DSL modem to router.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

this is something simple
2 things you will have to do

the router when a problem like this happens again
unplug router for 1 minute this is packet build up and then plug back in i found this out by service provider that its a build up of packets it relieves packets

just unplug the router let sit for minute and plug back in
