Question about D-Link DI-524/DWL-G630 (di524dwlg630kit) Wireless
I have been trying to install a d-link wireless router for a friend. I have followed the installation instructions through the cd-rom wizard. All the approrpiate lights are on at the correct stage in the process. The leads are all connected as I managed to connect to the management interface and change the network SSID and password. When the software checks for a connection it says to check the power connection and the ethernet connection to the computer. If I have managed ot change the ssid etc am I right in thinking that the leads are correctly connected. If so then is there anything else I should now try?
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.
