I just moved into an apartment that comes with the internet provided by Sudden Link Cable services through an ethernet port in my room. Apparently the port is wired to a main closet where i'm connected to a DI-604 router.
I wanted to connect my DI-524 to my ethernet port in my room so i can connect my pc and laptop (the laptop will be connected wirelessly).
Is there a way to connect these two routers together? If so, how? I know I shouldn't connect my cable to the WAN port on the DI-524 and should instead connect it to one of the LAN ports on the router. I'm not quite sure how to configure the settings within the DI-524 either. how do you set up the router and pc so that you can access the configuration window (192.168.0.1)? hellllp!!!

Re: Connecting a DI-524 to a DI-604
This shouldn't really be any problem simply use a short "Uplink" ethernet cable to join the routers thru the uplink port, or any port really, and that way ya should be able to wifi and access the net, set ya router that connects to the net for DCHP and disable that setting in the Wifi router and ya should be good to go?

The reason you have no internet is because the router is specifically for cable. your description contains errors what i think you mean is that you have gone from cable dsl to an adsl, correct me if i am wrong. Basically your modem connected to your router via an ethernet cable and then the router fed the wireless signal to your wireless devices or via ethernet through the 4 ports in the back. With adsl you have a feed from your phone line to an adsl modem so the only way for you to get the dsl router working is to have two ethernet leads connecting to your pc, one from the modem to the pc and one from the pc to the router. You would also need to setup internet sharing on the pc thats connected to both devices.
remove all the cable conencted to your D-link except for the power cable of course ^_^ if the lights stops from blinking then possbile one or more of the ethernet ports on your router is malfunctioning try connecting the modem to your router by trying all the ethernet ports on the router until you see the lights stop from blinking if the lights stop blinking then that port is still usable on the router but in any case it also may be the routers settings you might need to set your router to the modems settings depending on your internet if it is DSL and you are using PPPOE there must be a user name and password that you need to input in the router for a calbe modem no need but since your situation is as we speak I do not think you have a cable modem for your internet, you might need to call your Internet service provider as well for further info for the user name and password the mdoem has unless you know how to get the user name and password from the modem ^_^ as far as I can go that's all
what may be happening is the wireless pc as it was; needs the dns and ip address flushing, also the pc you connected the router to as you must have conflicting ip addreses
Click start run then type ipconfig /flushdns.
You should ensure that the router is set to enable DHCP to assign ip addreses and make sure your'e network cards on all pc's are set to obtain ip address automaticaly in the TCP/IP properties.
Restart the pcs and type 192.168.0.1 in your web browser and get into your router setings and check in the DHCP section that all pc's have been given an ip address.
If all fails you may need to reset the router
Well I believe wat ya need to do is simply obtain a NEW "Account" with NEW Logon & Password with a NEW Internet Service Provider.
Then you set up the modem to connect to the new ISP, at the NEW ISP's address, with the NEW Password & Logon.
When you got the modem ya should have got a "Setup" CD that should walk ya thru the connection routine...
Below is a link for a "Users Manual" that should help you get connected.
