Using wireless connection with plugged in computers
Hi, Ihave the d-link DI-524 wireless router, I have been basically using it as a wired router for our 3 computers. However, now we have a nintendo WII and would like to make it accessible for it. I bought the router used and don't have the password and the Wii says it can't connect to it because it is password protected. Is there anything I can do?
Re: using wireless connection with plugged in computers
Reset the router to factory defaults by pressing and holding the reset button for about 10 secs. The router will reboot (this will take a few minutes) and you can login using "admin" and blank password. The default address is 192.168.0.1 Hope you will reclaim your router. cheers.

Thank you for using FixYa If you can't log into your router then it may not be connected properly, such as no cable from computer going to the modem. The first time you connect it, it has to be plugged into the computer. If it is connected (hard wired) and you still can't access it, then your firewall and or virus checker is blocking you, shut them off by going into your security panel in windows. Try again after you shut them off.
I hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.
For a wired network, the easiest way is using the Wizard mode (There's a botton named Wizard at Home tab), basically you'll have to configure connection with cable modem (WAN part) and check DHCP settings (LAN part), this one should be enabled for having automatic IPs.
Using your web browser, log in to your router's setup page (usually 192.168.1.1 or something similar) using a wired ethernet connection. Enter the username and password. Check the setup for your wireless network's SSID.
I'm assuming if you've been given a username/password you've either got DSL (a PPPoE connection) or it's for your email address. If you don't have a disc for your new router, you can configure it through a wired connection to the router (using an ethernet cable). That's a bit of work but if you need to do it that way we can help. Otherwise run the CD that came with the router (again, you'll need a computer plugged into it) and the step-by-step should get you through it.
For starters, unplug the modem and then plug the cable running from the old router into the same port space in the new router (should say either WLAN or Uplink). Turn on the modem, wait 30 seconds, then power on the router. After that run the disc and you should be good.
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.

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.
just had same prob if you go to dlink site in phillipines there you will find the latest firmware for dlink 524 . i couldnt belive i had to do this as all links to uk site had no pages diplayed .i went first to .singapore site then to australia but the most uptodate firmware i found was on phillipines site
Are you using a DHCP server for boths sites A & B, or just using static IP addresses for all the PC's ? What is your IP scheme ?
Are you using this D Liers just to connect sitenk routers just to connect sites A & B?
Sorry for all these questions, I am trying to picture your network before attempting a solution for your needs.
