Before you begin any installation project, always make sure you have all of the parts that are supposed to be in the box. Normally, you will have the router, an installation disk, an Ethernet cable and a power adapter for the router. If anything is missing, be sure to return the router and get a replacement.
To begin, plug the router into the wall using the power adapter that came with it. You should see the D-link's Power LED turn on. You'll next want to make sure your cable or DSL modem is unplugged. Next, you will take the Ethernet cable that came with your D-Link router and plug that into the WAN port in the back of the unit. The other end of the cable will go directly to the modem's Ethernet port.

Power up both the cable or DSL modem and the router by plugging them back in. The modem may have a power button you need to press. Both units should have green lights. You should see the activity light on the modem flashing, and the WAN port on the router blinking, as well. This indicated activity and communication between the two. The modem is sending IP information to the router.
Depending on your computer and router, you may automatically be able to connect wirelessly to yuor new router to begin configuration. However, it may be necessary to patch into the router with a nearby computer via an Ethernet cable, which will plug into the LAN port. Whichever method you use, you'll need to reboot the computer.
To configure the D-Link router, you will next need to open a web browser and type http://www.192.168.0.1
You should see the administration screen of the D-link router. Type in admin and leave the password filed blank.
Hi Joed!

A setup wizard should appear, prompting you to first change the router's password. Pick something you can remember.
You will next have to setup a time zone, you will then be given option as to how the router will handle IP address on the network. Most users will opt for the Dynamic option, which means the router will act as a DHCP server and supply all computers on the network with an IP address. If you select DHCP, you will need to Clone the IP address of the machine your ISP has already had contact with. For instance, if your ISP has been giving IP address to a certain computer before you put the router between them, you will need to clone the MAC address of that machine.
If you opted for Static IP Addresses, you will be brought to a screen that you will need to contact the ISP to get IP numbers from.
You will next need to setup the wireless connection. You will change the default SSID to match the Workgroup ID of your LAN computers. The SSID and the Workgroup IDs must match. You will also be able to configure encryption at this point. If you have the ability to use the newer WPA encryption, you will want to use this. But we don't recommend setting up encryption until you confirm that all PCs are able to connect properly.
Lastly, you will be asked to reboot the router.
Terms: Router: Networking device that routs traffic to a specific node on the network usually serves as a gateway to the Internet.
LAN: Local Area Networks are generally comprised of Ethernet (wired) or WiFi (wireless) devices in a home of small office. A LAN can be as little as a couple of PCs or numerous switches and routers.
SSID: When you're sitting in Starbucks sipping your double Espresso, you can flip open your laptop and hit VIEW WIRELESS NETWORKS and blamo! you see the network and you're surfing the Web. The router at Starbucks is broadcasting its SSID. This is a problem for numerous reasons. This is an Open network, so you may as well have someone snooping over your shoulder as you type. Someone using packet sniffing software can easily capture your passwords and Emails as they float above you invisibly.
You can always press the reset button to start from the beginning.
The reset button is placed where the cable connenctions are.
You can press it with a pen.

Hope this will help you.

Hi! I downloaded the D-Link installation guide for my router : DI-524. I did all the steps correctly but I was not able to do all the steps in the guide. So, now my router is not working, and when I'm...


There should be a reset button on the back of the router get a paper clip and bend it and push the button for 5 sec then reset and do all the other stuff agian see below

To open the set up page of the router of the router , one of your computer should be able to go online through the router.
It could be a wired computer or wireless computer.
If it is a wireless computer then make sure that the computer is connected to your own wireless network.
Do not change any wireless settings on the router using a wireless computer.
OK ! Now you have a computer online through the router and you want to open the set up page of the router.

First step is check the IP address of the computer.
Check the IP address and the Default gateway on the computer.

For Windows XP

START ==> RUN ==> type in cmd in the RUN box==> click OK or Hit ENTER . You will see a black window that is a command prompt . In the black window type in " ipconfig " ==> and Hit ENTER on your key board .

For Windows Vista and Windows 7

click on START ==> type in cmd in the start search box ==> enter ==> you will see the black window. Type in " ipconfig "you will see a lot of information. Try to find out the local area connection IPv4 address .

Note down the Default gateway number.

For MAC OS

Click APPLE icon in the right top corner of the computer. Go to System Preferences ==> go to Network ==> you will find the option Built in Ethernet or Airport whichever is connected. If you go to that you will find the Ip address and router Address.

The default gateway is the IP address of your router.

This IP address of the router will be used to open the set up page of the router

Now you got the IP address of the router.Open the Internet Browser ( Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari )

In the Address bar of the browser Type the IP address of the router.

Do not type http:// or www just type in the IP address only.

It will ask you for the user name and the password of the router.

This is the User name and the password of the router and NOT the wireless password. On a wireless router, there are 2 passwords. One is to access the router and the other one is for the wireless network.

For most of the routers the default password will be " admin " . for some routers the default password is " password ". For Linksys router the default password is admin and no user name.

My computer is telling me "limited or no connectivity." I spoke with my cable company and they said everything was ok on their end and to check with my modem. what should I do?


This error comes when there is same ip address in 2 computers.
So make sure in networks there are not same ip address.
You can also solve this issue with DHCP .
Enable DHCP in router.
For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.0.1
or
http://192.168.1.1
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.
.
Enable DHCP if you want to get ip from router.
Then set "ip get automatic " in network adapter property.

How can I put a code on my linksys?


Open Internet Explorer.
Type 'http://192.168.0.1' (or try 'http://192.168.1.1').
This will connect to the built-in web-server inside the Linksys router.
Click to run the 'Wireless Networking Setup Wizard',
and choose an SSID and choose a password-code.

I need to change the channel on my router


Can you ping the ip address? By default, the ip address should be 192.168.0.1. You can verify by going to Start, Run, cmd. At the command prompt type ipconfig /all and you will see the ip address, dhcp server, gateway, etc. The gateway will be the address for the router. Type ping 192.168.0.1 (if that is the address). Also, the default username is admin and the password is left blank.
