Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router

1 Answer

I have a mac and am having trouble with the

I have a mac and am having trouble connecting to the DI-524 in my house. I can pick up the wifi signal in the house, which pops up in my airport...but when I type in the WEP key it says "connection failed."  what's weird is both my iPod and phone can connect to the wifi with the same password. Also, everyone who has a PC can connect with no problem. when I connected the laptop to the modem via ethernet cable, that worked....which I assume means there's just a problem connecting wirelessly to the router. Any ideas?

Whenever I have problems like you describe, I try to simplify. Remove the encryption key & see if your mac will connect. If YES, then add a simple key. I go with all numbers. Add complexity as you succeed. At the end of this process, reconfig all the other devices.

Connecting a DI-524 to a DI-604


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?

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.

Wireless router blooking


Hi,

You can block other users by enabling the MAC Filter and only accept connections from your PCs MAC numbers.  To determine the WiFi MAC numbers of your PC, click on Start, click on Run, type "ipconfig /all" on all your PCs. Look for the Wireless networking cards and their numbers which should be something like 00:A1:B2:C3:D4:E5. In the Web Configuration of the router, enable MAC Filter and enter those numbers in "Allow". Save and Exit. From thereon only the PCs with the MAC numbers entered would be allowed access to the Internet.

I personally find this preferable rather than WEP or WPA which causes slowdown in WiFi connections.

Hope this be of help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

D-Link DI-524 Wireless Router


Start with the simplest answer first so make sure the laptop's WiFi is turned on. If you have set the router to provide a closed network your laptop will not see it automatically and you will need to enter the WiFi network settings in network setup. if you are using Windows click start, click control panel and click network, on the left hand sidebar you will see "Setup a Small or Home Office Network", follow the wizard and you should be able to get connected. If you are using Mac OS X click the Airport icon on your menu bar, click "other network" and enter the SSID, select the encryption type and enter the network key (password). Lastly make sure that if you have chosen to use an access control list you have entered and allowed your laptop's MAC address in the list before trying to connect.

Some laptops have a switch that must be toggle for the wireless to work. Check Control Panel/Admin Tools/Services to verify that the Wireless Zero Config is running.
