DI-524 Intermittent Loss of Wireless Capability after Power Outage

On Thursday, March 3, there was a power outage, and ever since, our router has been failing every few hours. However, it only seems to affect the wireless capability of the router, as our computer physically connected to the router retains network and internet access. Whenever this happens, I must reboot the router to return the wireless network to normal.

This is not the first time this has happened (we have had a few power outages in the last year, and each time the router was similarly afflicted). Each other time, though, within a few days the router was back to full functionality. I am worried that this is not the case this time.

Try upgrading the firmware through the Routers Web Interface , and see if this will fix the problem otherwise the only other way around it is to do what you are currently doing and unplug and plug it back in, perhaps the AP was damaged as a result of a power surge , if the problem persists best bet is to buy a new one.

Goodluck!

There was a power outage 2 days ago. When the power came back on, the wireless portion of my DI-514 did not work. There was no internet connection to any of the pcs. How do I get it to work?


Try turning off the PC, the router, and the modem. Then restart them in this order waiting about 1 minute between each:

1) modem
2) router
3) PC

Good luck. Bry

After a power outage, I have no wireless connectability.


Make sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem.
If your computer is not able to go online through the modem then you will need to call ISP first.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem
then you need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

D-link514 wont turn on after storm power outage


The cause is the power-supply "brick" to the DI-514.
It has failed.

So, it's time to buy a "surge-suppressor" (sometimes integrated into a high-end power-bar) and to buy a new router, for less than $80, in total, to be protected and be ready for the "next" storm.

WE HADA A POWER OUTAGE AND NOW THE WIRELESS IS NOT WORKING AND THE LIGHT ON ROUNTER DOES NOT COME ON


Is the router plugged into the same power source (surge protector or power strip) as your computer? Try plugging it into a different outlet -- one that you know works -- and if the router doesn't turn on there then either your router is fried or the AC adapter that powers it is fried.

Dlink router is not connecting to the internet


Check the lights on the router to make sure both out going and incoming are on.

Manual link below in case that helps

ftp://ftp.dlink.co.uk/di_broadband_gateways/di-524/di-524_manual.pdf

If not both on contact broadband supplier as IP for router may have been "altered" and will need resetting their end.

Not unknown for an outage to be proceeded by a "spike" which can blow unprotected items.

After power outage, router will not connect. Cable modem connected directly to PC works, but why not the router? Is it a setting?


Yes.

It is possible that the router actually got reset in the process.

Dlink setup is 192.168.1.100 I believe. It should say in the manual. If you do go through the setup wizard and it still won't connect, then the power outage may have affected either the firmware or the hardware.

Yes you can, it's easy.

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.

It is possible. If, due to the power outage, you lost your router config, you are going to have to configure it again.
