Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router

1 Answer

One LAN port not working

One port (3rd) of my dlink di-534 router is not working - it has a slow intermittent blink but when connected to a PC nic, the PC will not pick up any IP address etc. I have moved a working device into that port and it then stops also so that eliminates dodgy set up and cable.
Is there a setting on the router I could check ??
All other ports are working just fine !!
many thanks

My guess is that this port is just plain old dead. When you really need an extra port you could consider picking up a cheap ethernet switch. Repairs are not done because of the time an money involved vs the cost of a new one. When it's still in waranty you could always return it to the shop. Ports are normally hardwired and not controlled by the software on these kind of routers.

Do I need the power cord to my D-Link router to set up my computer?

From the port marked "Wan" on the back of the D-Link, install a lan cable to the cable/dsl modem.

Insert the lan cable from Dlink port labeled "1" to the PC.

The Dlink, cable/DSL modem, and PC should all be powered on.

I believe the router comes with a CD/DVD. Insert this into the PC to set up the router.

Be sure to read through your Dlink manual for additional instructions.

Cant share internet using a router

Hi There, what model of dlink router do you have?
Also, Or just check the ports you have in your router, the internet should be connected to the WAN port and the switch and/or computers to the LAN port(s).
If the router is new by default you should be able to access internet by plug everything the way I told you.
Also, by default the router ip address should be, type that into your web browser address bar, then you will have access to the router admin web page were you can see the status page, there will tell you if you have or not access to Internet really. Maybe the problem is that the router have no access internet access at all.

No need to install the dlink on the imac. All you need to do is connect the modem first the dlink. (Modem connected to Internet or WAN port of the dlink). Now if they are connected, your imac should be plugged in to port 1 of dlink, and your PC to port 2. That should do it.
