If the router has the voltage and current specs listed, there's no reason you can't simply get a regulated wall-wart from Radio Shack if they have one with those ratings (or the same voltage and higher current). They have several models with interchangeable tips, so you'll probably find one that fits. If you're handy with a soldering iron, you can always tack a pigtail onto the board with a different connector if you can't find a mate for the current one. I've never done this on a D-Link, but both techniques have worked on Linksys and Netgear routers. Just be careful of polarity. Sometimes the label doesn't show it, although tip-positive is most common. You can check with an ohmmeter to determine which connection is ground.

Good luck, 73, and thanks for using Fixya! (I'm KA3O, BTW, and now my cover's blown.)

The router was working fine, now its not. No lights on and it does not seem to be powering up


seems pretty straight forward. Its either the router that is dead or the power supply. Use the substitution method to isolate which one. You may have been hit by a power surge. routers are pretty sensitive to power hits.

There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router.
1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up.
2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? Ie. change the default password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router.
3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arid welders, washing machines etc. If so the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply)
4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currently used but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interference with your wireless router from other wireless routers and access points in your area.

Dlink di-524 connect to RV042


Hi.

You need to cascade the Dlink wireless router to your RV042.

Suppose your RV042 has a default IP Address of 192.168.1.1, and the DLINK IP uses 192.168.0.1. Your Physical connection is from the regular port of the RV042 going to the WAN/Internet Port of the DLink wireless router.

Once you do that, your Dlink router should automatically obtain an IP from the main router. If it did, configure your wireless settings and you should be able to connect via wireless.

This is just one way to cascade your router to another router.
