Hi, I`ve installed this device and the original software has no the WPA key protection, i used the WEP, but my desktop wireless adapter (DWL-G510) does not work properly with this. Is there a way to make them talk the same language?
OK! There we go. I got the new firmware version (V2.07)in the site WWW.dlinkla.com, compatible with my router (DI 524).In the advanced management of the router, I uploaded the new version previously dowloaded in a file,from the site.Them I got the device working good.
I hope it be usefull for someone.

Some later model wireless routers have the Password(ie.Encryption key) and the SSID already configured in the wireless router andthis information is printed on a label on the bottom of the router. These settings can be used to configure the wireless card and wireless adaptersin your computer/laptop. If these settings do not suit you, then it can be changed to suit yourrequirements. The encryption key secures your data and wireless connection from unauthorizedaccess.To configure the wireless settings in the router, connect a LAN cablefrom your computer to the wireless router, then open a Browser on your computerand enter the router's configuration IP address, then enter the admin login andpassword and then go to the wireless settings and configure the SSID andEncryption key. The router's encryption key can be a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA or WPA2key.If you use the Passphrase method select either WEP or WPA or WPA2 togenerate the encryption key. You can enter the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key with 8 to63 ASCII characters or 64 Hex digits. Most people use Passphrase which is easier to remember eg. I was born inJanuary 1988. The strongest and latest security is WPA2, the weakest and oldest is WEP. To connect to your wireless router from the computer/laptop,configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wirelesssettings ie SSID, plus the WPA or WPA2 encryption key. Then computer/laptopscan communicate with your wireless router.
The DI-524 is a router, you need to access to the configuration page of the router by check the physical connection first make sure that they are connected properly next is that to access the 192.168.0.1 using the browser, To lock the router you need to open the wireless setting of the router to configure the encryption like WPA-PSK or WEP.
You need to open the router's admin page by opening your Internet Explorer. On the address bar type http://192.168.0.1 it will prompt you for username and password. By default the username is admin and the password is blank (no password). You can see the WEP or WPA key on the WIRELESS tab. Goodluck!
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 192.168.0.1. 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 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.
If you don't put in the same wep key you won't be able to connect....take that S out..also not every device can connect to wpa ...use the same key if not able to connect reconfig the wireless settings change the key..,
