As far as I am aware, the only way to reset the pin, is to reset the router to factory defaults. You will then have to reconfigure your wireless settings. To reset to factory defaults:
Plug in the router.
1. Locate the small reset button. It is next to the power jack.
2. Use something to push the button, a paper clip works well.
3.Hold the reset switch down for 10 seconds.
4. Wait for the WLAN light to stop blinking. The router is now reset.
To reconfigure the settings on the router, enter 192.168.0.1 into your browser address bar.
* 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)
I have had exactly this problem and after MUCH work downloading new drivers for the Vista Pcs and updating the operating system in the DI-524 found that the 524 does not operate well with Vista. A new DI-624 integrated well with Vista, and installed with no problems. Good luck!
I'm assuming if you've been given a username/password you've either got DSL (a PPPoE connection) or it's for your email address. If you don't have a disc for your new router, you can configure it through a wired connection to the router (using an ethernet cable). That's a bit of work but if you need to do it that way we can help. Otherwise run the CD that came with the router (again, you'll need a computer plugged into it) and the step-by-step should get you through it.
For starters, unplug the modem and then plug the cable running from the old router into the same port space in the new router (should say either WLAN or Uplink). Turn on the modem, wait 30 seconds, then power on the router. After that run the disc and you should be good.
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?
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.
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.
