I m unable to access the internet using the routter , how can i reset the dlink -524 wirless?
There is a small-pinhole on the back of the router next to where you plug in the power adapter. In that pin-hole is the reset button. Stick something in there and hold for 30sec, this will reset your router back to it's default factory settings.
Now you need to setup your router again. On a computer that is attached to the router by an ethernet (LAN) cord, open up internet explorer and type in the default IP Address for your router into the address bar. In your case, the default IP Address is
If that does not bring up a login window, then you should go to Start > Run
and in the Run window, type CMD and hit enter (in Vista and Win 7 just select the Start Orb and type CMD into the search bar). In the command prompt window that opened up, type IPCONFIG /ALL and hit enter. You're looking for Default Gateway (that's your router). Write down that IP address and then type it into your address bar of Internet Explorer or your web browser.
Now that the login window for your router is open, you will login with the default login information which is "admin" for the UserName (there is no password) now hit the ok button.
Click on the Wireless button on the left-hand side of the screen. Type in your SSID (this is the name of the network, you can name it whatever you wish).
Leave Channel set to 6.
If you wish to use security (which you should) select your preferred method, for now we'll just use WEP.
Pick Enabled for it.
Select your level of encryption (64bit or 128bit)
select HEX or ASCII and create a key. If you create it in Key 1 Field, select that field, now hit apply at the bottom of your screen.
Now your router is reset and set back up. Now you need to conenct to your SSID on your wireless computers and input your WEP key and you will connectt.
Hope this helps!
