I am running a DI 524 router which was installed by the retailer, but have been disappointed by the poor range I am getting, 10 metres at best and 6-7 metres as normal, the antenna as supplied with router is 2dBi and is said to have a range of 100metres. I have purchased an ANT 24-0700 antenna 7dBi with a range of 500 metres approx, but it has made no difference, is there a setting that could be made to improve things, I have the normal house hold things running and have tried re-positioning the antenna but again no luck.

The final solution is a factory reset of your router. You can do a factory reset by logging into the router using you browser. Go to the settings and perform a factory reset
If you forgot the router password, you ill have to do a factory reset by locating a small hold on the back of the router and insert the tip of of paper clip for about 10 seconds while the power is on. The router will be reset to out of box status and then you can ssets-up form scratch.
Login in using your browser and go to the wireless settings and set-up a wireless password/key. Remember the key because each device will now need it to connect. You can also turn OFF Broadcast SSID and your network name will not be shown on anyone's device. You must remember the network name when using this method.
You do not need the disc. Using you browser, login into the router using the default IP 192.168.0.1 unless this has been changed and you should be able to configure your router.
g´day m8, Your D-Link AirPlus G DI-524 Wireless
Router needs a hard reset.
Log in to your
router, go to -> administration -> factory default -> Restore Factory Defaults: =
"yes" Then save settings.
You have now reset
First thing you do is
set your wireless setup in your computer to the same, i.e. no security. Test if there is
connection, if, the start with the setup from the top, beginning with admin

1. Just connect one of the LAN ports of the DI-524 to a LAN port of your other router. Leave the DI-524 WAN port empty.
2. Disable the DHCP server on your DI-524, your other router will be the DHCP server.
3. Assign a static IP address to you DI-524, different from your other router's. Example, if your other router has 192.168.2.1, you may assign 192.168.2.4. Make sure that the IP address you assign is outside the DHCP range configured in your other router and that the subnet mask is identical on both.
Perhaps the router is not broadcasting its SSID, therefore is invisible to would be tappers. Type 192.168.0.1 into a browser on a computer directly wired to the router, leave the username blank, if you havent changed it, the password is admin by default. Once logged in check that wireless is enabled and that you are broadcasting the ssid, you may want to setup/change security settings for the wireless connection at this time also.
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.
