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

1 Answer

Router doesn't obtain WAN IP address (DHCP)

The router fails to pick up a WAN IP address via DHCP. A competing brand of wireless router succeeds, so I know it's not the ISP or DHCP itself. I bought the router used, and did not get a CD with it; perhaps this problem is the reason they were selling it. Please advise.

    Thank you. I should have mentioned in my original post that I have been through the onboard menus and don't see anything relevant to changing the DHCP address-acquisition process. The log -- trying to recall from memory, since obviously I am on my _other_ router to type this -- shows something about the process "timing out (I think) in ____WAIT state" while trying to use DHCP to obtain an address. As a programmer with no direct knowledge of DHCP, but the ability to make an educated guess, it looks like this router simply isn't "doing DHCP" in the manner my ISP requires. (Has DHCP changed since, oh, 2003 or so? Maybe I'll look for a firmware upgrade for the router...)

  • Xnert Jan 09, 2008

    Late-breaking bulletin: problem is solved! I don't remember where (my memory is terrible), but somewhere I found a user's guide (maybe at D-Link's website?) that gave a setup procedure that included "click[ing] 'Clone MAC Address,'" a step that I hadn't (wouldn't have!) thought of. I went through the procedure as given, and the thing started working!



    Man, there's nothing like having actual documentation.



    (The reason for doing all this was because my wife's new laptop wouldn't connect wirelessly to the NetGear router I was formerly using, where her old laptop WOULD. Now that I've switched to the D-Link, her new laptop connects flawlessly and the old one's connection is intermittent.)

You can hook the router up and go into the settings by when it is hooked up to your computer, type in http://192.168.0.1 and the password is usually user or admin. the password is usually password, unless it was changed. you may be able to change settings to fix this problem through that GUI

Can pick up router but it wont connec to the internet


Check if you have a WAN IP address on the router's Web interface.
If you ISP is Cable You have to do MAC address clone. If your ISP is DSL ask them if it a DHCP or PPPoE by which the router has to be configured. If it is PPPoE, they will give you a username and Password.

How to configure a Router?


How to determine the WAN configuration or Interntet configuration of a SOHO Router?
1. Connect the computer to the Modem via Ethernet cable. Make sure you are able to going online 2. After confirming you are online. Go to Start->Run. Type "cmd" on the Run window. 3. Type "ipconfig" on the command prompt or Black window or DOS window 4. You will be getting IP address,Subnet Mask and Default Gateway
There are 4 possibilities of IP address you can get
i)Public IP address under PPP adapter. -Router has to be configured in PPPoE mode to get a WAN IP. This will require a Username and Password from ISP ii) Public IP address under PPP adapter and Private IP address under Ethernet adapter -Router has to be configured in PPPoE mode to get a WAN IP. This will require a Username and Password from ISP iii)Public IP address under Ethernet adapter -Router has to be configured in Dynamic IP or DHCP mode to get a WAN IP -If it is still not getting a WAN IP address. * Click Mac clone on the router's WAN configuration * Power-cycle modem and Router. iv)Just a Private IP address under Ethernet adapter -Router has to be configured in Dynamic IP or DHCP mode to get a WAN IP -If it is still not getting a WAN IP address. * Power-cycle Modem and router.
After determining the WAN mode, it is time to configure the Router
1. Connect the Modem to the WAN port of the router. Connect the computer to the LAN port 2. Go to Start->Run. Type "cmd" on the Run window. 3. Type "ipconfig" on the command prompt or Black window or DOS window 4. You will be getting IP address,Subnet Mask and Default Gateway. The Default Gateway will the IP address of your router 5. Open a Web browser and type http://192.168.1.1(where this is the default IP of the router. This will be different from each manufacturer) on the address bar. 6. Go to WAN settings or Internet settings and select the options based on the above mentioned possibilities

Can't access internet.


Hi ladies,

Generally if the PPOE/DSL connection is working properly but you can't get to the internet on your PC you have a settings issue. Quite often the issue is not having a DNS server assisgned. If you either didn't enter that in the PPPOE settings or if you're using DHCP from DSL and it's not being assigned then you have to enter one manually in either the router or your PC.

First if you know the IP address for the internet your router is using(on status page as WAN IP).

open a command window, Start, Run/Searchbar, CMD then hit enter. When the black and white window opens, type, PING then one space then the IP address, then hit enter. If it doesn't work your problem is on the inside of the router or the router itself. If it replys back four times your internal network and router are working. Now try pinging www.hotmail.com we don't care about the replies, just to see if your ping fails with unknown host or if it comes back with an address. If it fails, call your ISP and ask them to help you manually enter the DNS settings for their network, If it succeeds your internet is working fine, it's your browser settings that are the problem.

Once you have finished these steps, if you have not found a rsolution reply back by adding a comment to this post and I will try to help you through the next few steps.


Hope this helps FixYa,

ADSL ISP provides same address for IP and Gateway


Can you manually change the WAN IP on the router?  If so, give it an IP like 123.12.167.5 and set the gateway address to 123.12.167.1.  If it asks for a subnet mask, give it 255.255.255.0.
If she has a Linksys router, you may need to change the operating "MODE" on it.  A lot of Linksys routers have 2 modes of operation---Router mode and Gateway mode.  For her configuration, make sure the Linksys is in Gateway mode.  This will fix the NAT problem.

Cheers!

it seems that ur PC & cable modem configuration is ok, now the problem is with ur router WAN interface configuration. the problem would be one out of 2 - first to check whether ur router wan interface is configured properly to obtain IP address from DHCP (if possible, u can give the static ip address with same series as cable modem) second to check with ur ISP.

Hi there

Getting Started

Setting up a Wireless Infrastructure Network
8bd3361.jpg
Please remember that D-Link AirPlus G wireless devices are pre-configured to connect together, right out of the box, with their default settings.For a typical wireless setup at home (as shown above), please do the following:
1) You will need broadband Internet access (a Cable or DSL-subscriber line into
your home or office)
2) Consult with your Cable or DSL provider for proper installation of the modem
3) Connect the Cable or DSL modem to the DI-524 Wireless Broadband Router
(see the printed Quick Installation Guide included with your router.)
4) If you are connecting a desktop computer to your network, install the D-Link AirPlus G DWL-G510 wireless PCI adapter into an available PCI slot on your desktop computer. You may also install the DWL-G520, or the DWL-520. (See the printed Quick Installation Guide included with the network adapter.)
5) Install the D-Link DWL-G630 wireless Cardbus adapter into a laptop computer.
(See the printed Quick Installation Guide included with the DWL-G630.)
6) Install the D-Link DFE-530TX+ adapter into a desktop computer. The four Ethernet LAN ports of the DI-524 are Auto MDI/MDIX and will work with both Straight-Through and Cross-Over cable. (See the printed Quick Installation Guide included with the DFE-530TX+.)

Using the Configuration Menu

Whenever you want to configure your network or the
DI-524, you can access the Configuration Menu by

DHCP stands for Dynamic Host Control Protocol. The DI-524 has a built-in DHCP server.
The DHCP Server will automatically assign an IP address to the computers on the LAN/
private network. Be sure to set your computers to be DHCP clients by setting their TCP/
IP settings to “Obtain an IP Address Automatically.” When you turn your computers on,
they will automatically load the proper TCP/IP settings provided by the DI-524. The
DHCP Server will automatically allocate an unused IP address from the IP address pool
to the requesting computer. You must specify the starting and ending address of the IP
address pool.

Using just the VOIP part of a Belkin all in one router??


You will probably need to set it up differently, I do not know the belking router, but normally the VOIP functions only work on the wan port of these routers so you should make the connections as follows:

INET ---> (wan) DLINK (lan) -----> (wan) BELKIN (voip) --> Phone
|--------> Wired Computers
|--- ) ) ) Wi Fi computers

On the DLINK enable DHCP and set a fixed IP for the Belkin router, either by setting the belkin in an IP outside the DHCP pool or setting it from the DHCP server.

This configuration workd well with a DLINK and a Motorola (vonage) router I have.
