Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router

1 Answer

Connectivity spotty. Sometimes it works and

My DI 524 works sporatically. I am connected wirelessly through my cable service modem to roadrunner.If I pull the power cord to the router and leave it out for about 15 minutes, it will connect with the modem and then the modem shows that the link is working which is visible through the flashing light. The router's lights often remain solid and then I have no connectivity at all. Brighthouse technician claims that the router is on the way out dying and I need a new router. D-Link techs claim that since it is connecting at all that the router is ok. Please help.

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.

I have hooked my di 524 from my DSL cable modem then hooked the two in line to my computer when I hooked up to the computer I have no connectivity why?


OK, if I understand:
telephone----DSL Modem--di 524--computer.
That is what you are supposed to do.
Has any configuration of these devices ever had any connectivity?
1. Is the DSL modem in "Bridge Mode"? That is the first thing I'd check.
2. Are you using the right wires and ports? There may be a DCE-DTE problem. Be sure you have used the wire that came with the DSL modem to hook it to the internet port on the DI-524.
3. What is the state of all the various lights? Do they show that you have valid connections?
4. Most of these devices can be configured with a browser. When you browse them, what do you see?
5. What is windows telling you?

I just conected my DI-524 with a new cable modem


The first question is whether your change of service provider really has any connection with your new lack of range. If your new cable modem contains a wireless router, it's possible it is interfering with your old router. You only need one, so in that case you should remove your DLink and configure your wireless cable router to your satisfaction. Otherwise, you may have coincidentally picked up a new source of interference; you may want to change the channel on your DLink router to see if that improves your range. The third possibility is that your DLink radio is going sour with age -- it happens -- and may simply need replacement.

Unable to connect to internet on desktop pc


does your utp cable crimped correctly? have you tested this? try to use this utp cable to your laptop if its okay then follow the instruction as what is written in the manual, i also experience like this with my 4pc's before and i found out that the utp cable i crimped was not properly done. in the case of the DI-524 this is just a plug and play you don't need to configure.

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.
