I did as you suggested,went to DLINK and upgraded my firmware. It didn't change a thing. After I downloaded the firmware I went to IE and entered the IP address of the Router. What came up was another page of Google sites to solve my problem. What now?

Re: product 966, D-Link D524 Router.
It happens when you type wrong ip address and it automatically goes to google because google is the default search engine setted in your computer and the Ip address entered is wrong so it search for it and end up with some google search information
I hope you are not sure about your router Ip address - if you know how to find out the real ip address of the dlink router do it
and go to command prompt ping that ip address for reply.
Clarify me about your network structure - mostly default Ip address when you get it new is 192.168.1.1 - Try to reconfigure it
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I had a similar problem in the past. I would suggest the following solutions:
1) Download the latest drivers for the D-Link DIR-625 or D-615 Router at the manufacturer's website DIR-625: http://www.dlink.com/products/?pid=501 DIR-615: http://www.dlink.com/products/?pid=565 -Make sure to download the correct drivers for your operating system (XP, Vista, Windows 7).
2) Download the latest firmware for the D-Link DIR-625 or DIR-615. It is available through the same listed websites. Note: Make sure to use direct connection for firmware upgrades so that it upgrades securely without errors.
3) Make sure the modem is up to date. If it's your modem, then upgrade drivers and firmware by googling the appropriate model number and brand of the modem.
4) If it is not your modem, you can still upgrade the drivers and firmware. Further assistance should be available through your ISP (Comcast, Verizon).
5) Sometimes a connection may be disconnecting because the firmware for the connection via FiOS/DSL may not be upgraded in the infrastructure outside your house. To solve this issue, call up your ISP and tell him that you are disconnecting several times a day and ask if firmware is up to date.
6) It may be a faulty modem. If so, call up your ISP and they should replace it for free (generally).
7) Fault router may entail customer support at D-Link. Just contact through email and check your warranty. They may help you even if the product is out of warranty (happened to me).
It sounds like the router needs the firmware updated, everything I have seen with those issues points to a firmware upgrade. The steps are many so the best way is to follow the manufacturer's step-by-step instructions. I have attached a link below
first of all, what is your router's firmware version? if it is 1.25, well there's no update as of this time. if lower than 1.25, here's where you can download the firmware http://www.dlink.com/products/?tab=3&pid=DI-624&rev=DI-624 .
DLink states the login issue has been fixed with firmware v1.04 3/28/07
Remember to get the right one for your unit model. You must connect a RJ45 cable to the router and computer you have downloaded the firmware to and remember which directory it's in. When it asks for the firmware put in the target location (c:\my documents\xxxxx) of the firmware file. Good luck.
