Question about D-Link DI-524/DWL-G630 (di524dwlg630kit) Wireless

Problem withD-Link DI524


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?

Re: Problem withD-Link DI524

Hi Darren-N,

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.


Spare head 2.

If you can connect to the internet using the Ethernet cable on your laptop then the cable modem is configured correctly.
If you want to connect to the Internet using the D-Link wireless router then first you need to configure the D-Link wireless settings and then configure the wireless card in your laptop with the D-Link's wireless settings. Remove the Ethernet from the laptop and connect it to the WAN/Internet port on the D-Link wireless router.

Cannot install D-Link router

You may try typing admin on the username field. Just leave the password field empty.

Once you're in the setup page, click on WIRELESS tab which on the left side of the page. On the Wireless page, you will see the wireless settings set in the router. You may also enable the wireless security on that page if there is not security enabled yet.

Please check this for your reference

Hope this helps!

Router not working, help please!

You may may need to configure your D-Link to use your type of internet! Try following the Quick Install Guide which can be found here: The WLAN light doesn't come on probably because you have the wireless disabled, which can be re-enabled once in the configuration for the wireless(in the document mentioned above) If you are having any difficulty following the guide or have folloed the guid and still can't connect, please get back to me regards, babb
