Don't get mad ... I suggest you plug your equipment into a outlet that is hot all the time. If that involves an extension cord where the stuff is currently located ... move the equipment to another location.

D-Link Router, Model DI-524 is not able to register IP address. My cable company did maintenance yesterday and this morning unable to link to internet with Router hooked up to modem. Apparently no good...


Sometimes when ISP's do maintenance the DHCP servers re-assign new IP numbers. When you have symptoms like yours it's because the modem, router, and computer are working off previously assigned old IP numbers that may have then been re-assigned to other customers modems after the maintenance. Same with the router. Rebooting your equipment causes them to pull new IP numbers and things start working again.

So, usually a reboot will fix it. Turn off the computer(s). Turn off or unplug the power cables from both the modem and the router. Keep them off for 3 or 4 minutes. Leave the data cables connected. Plug the power to the modem back in FIRST. Give it a few minutes to come up. Any lights should be green. If the lights don't come up green on the modem you'll need to call the cable company.

Second, plug in the router and let it come up. Again, lights should be green. Lastly, turn on the computer.

That should do it. If not, please post back. There are other things to try.

Connectivity spotty. Sometimes it works and


I would AGREE with the tech and move on here is why,

1. If you tried another cable
2. if you tried a direct connection
3. if you tried a hard reset and firmware

Your pretty much done at this point. there is not much to think about here a router is a little circuit board with a micro-processor and a switch all it does it route data and there very delicate to age,dusty homes,eletricty spikes-outages and what have you. Its not wroth any time of fix and what I call a throw away device.

Thanks and please do leave positive feedback and ratings.

Cannot connect to the internet


Reboot your modem, then reboot your new router.

The rebooting is an essential process of installing a new piece of hardware to a modem.

When your modem boots up it leases an IP Address to the MAC Address of the first connected piece of hardware (router in your case). If you switch hardware without rebooting, your modem will not recognize the new piece of hardware because it has a different MAC Address. Every piece of hardware has its own MAC Address, unless it has been cloned.

D-Link DI-524 is not communicating with modem


Checklist:
* Is DHCP configured correctly?
* Connect your server and laptop to a switch (not directly with the cable)
* Can they ping each other?
* Check that the firewall is configured (or switched off if you have another FW in place)
* Default gateway should be your router, not the computers (until you have configured RRAS for example)

If your Broadband modem is only with w/USB connection you have to change modem/router, you won't connect it with usb to di-524.

No power for DI-524


Have you tried the reset feature, small button near the power port.

Hold it down for thirty seconds with the unit unplugged. If that doesn't work you may need to buy a new router as something may have failed some time ago and just not been noticed until it was turned off.

Try the reset, but I suspect whatever killed your modem likely killed the router at the same time.

Hope this Helps FixYa,

Configuring D-Link DI-524 router with airtel beetel 110bx1


Make sure you can go online directly to the airtel broadband. If internet works fine, connect the D-Link router to the Beetle. That should be going to the Internet port or WAN port of the D-link. Then your PC to port 1. Try to power cycle both devices now. Unplug the power to the router first then to the modem. Wait for 30 seconds. Power on modem first, wait for the lights to go solid, then power on the router. Check if the internet works fine hardwired. If it is, wireless should work as well. Just connect to the signal coming from the D-link.

L2TP connection problem


Hello, I've had the electric cut off and immediately back on and I lost my connection from Wireless router to modem. I could not connect in the same way. I could access the router settings with wireless laptop and PC but not to internet on either. I bypassed the router and connected the PC computer to modem then to internet verifying with a browser. I then reconnected the computer cable back to router and router to modem. It stayed connected. But I'm not sure if you have a PC connected to the router also. Sometimes just unplugging some cables and replugging will solve problems. Hope this helps.

DI-524 wireless router as wireless switch


You need to disable the DHCP server on your "slave" wireless router ( the di-524 ). In D-link routers this might be called configuring it to be an "Access point".

When this happens, connecting to the second wireless router should cause your computer to obtain an IP address which is in the range of the first router (that is to say, it will use the first router's dhcp server).

You should be able have your laptop connect with an automatic IP address and have it work.

Connect to wireless D-Link and Westell6100


I am assuming that you have a functional LAN cable connecting the Westell and the DI 524, right? If you are unsure, replace it with a cable you know is good.

If the 524 is turned on downstream of the Westell modem, it should find what it wants. You may try rebooting the Westell and seeing if the 524 finds it, and you maybe should reboot the 524.

Sometimes, when the world gets jiggered up I have to work pretty hard to get my DI-524 resync'd to my DSL modem.
