I have a dlink wireless router DI-624. I have a 2nd laptop that was once connected to my wireless network but received a virus, after cleaning up the virus now I'm unable to connect to my wireless network. The message I'm getting is "connected with limited access". It allows me to connect to the network but not the internet.

Hi. One of the driver file of your wireless adapter might be infected of the virus. These File might be deleted when you do the clean up. My recommendation is try reinstalling the driver of your wireless network card.

    Hi. It is easy to identify if you router has a problem. Try using another computer and connect it to your router. If you will be geting tha same problem then there is a problem with the router. Now, inorder for you to check the computer.Try this steps:

    Go to the command prompt by clicking start menu then all programs then accessories
    type in ipconfig from the command box
    if you will be getting 169.x.x.x IP to your default gateway then this could be a hardware or software issue. Reinstalling the driver for your wireless will usually resolved the issue. If after reisnatllation then still you are etting the same 169.x.x.x IP address then, its a 100% sure that your wireless adapter is having the problem

I cannot find my dlink network key to enable my laptop to the net

Your wireless network must be secured that is why you are now not able to connect to the wireless network. You will need to check the wireless settings of the router.
Do you have any computer connected to the router ?
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router and open the set up page of the router. On this page you will find all the settings of the router. You will find the wireless network key also.

Cant connect my laptop wirelessly...

Try to reconfigure your wireless network on your DI-524.

To access the configuration page of your router by Default type in on the address bar On the login page by default the Username is admin and leave the Password blank.

If inside the the configuration page of the router

>Click Home
> Click on WIRELESS located on the left side and you will have the wireless setting of your network
> Change the wireless network name
> Under security choose either WEP or WPA -PSK for this type of router.
> Type in your new network key (also know as Passphrase of Key1).

For WEP use 0 to 9 Number or A to F character and it should be exactly 10 characters.
For WPA-PSK you can use alpha numeric from 0 to 9 and from A to Z. The minimun character would be 8.

> Click on apply
> Click on continue.
Try accessing your wireless network first using your wireless computer. If you are connected to your wireless network try connecting to the Internet.

Connecting with internet

Yes, that is possible since you have a wireless router. Router can share internet connection. Go to this link this will help you setup the wireless connection (secure it if you want) then on the very bottom there is an option how to Configure Windows XP to connect to your wireless network.

I suggest this because it would be better if there is encryption on the network so people wont be able to access your internet for free (unless you give them the security key)

Dlink di-524 connect to RV042


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

Suppose your RV042 has a default IP Address of, and the DLINK IP uses 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.
