Hi I have the same problem. I recently installed firmware 1.23 for my
revision A3 D-Link DI-524 and it no longer broadcasts any wireless
signals. Before the firmware update it worked perfectly, now it will
only let the directly connected computer work and it won't let me
access the setting using 192.168.0.1. I don't quite understand the
solutions given here if someone could please help me by clarifying or
giving me another answer that would be great thanks.

Re: D-link DI-524 firmware problem
Sorry - I've been out of town. A few things. Just in case you upgraded the firmware through a wireless connection you should never do this. Let me know what operating system you're using just so I know. Before you actually reset the router to factory defaults, if you haven't done it already, I want you to go to a command prompt. In XP start>run>type "cmd" without the quotes and then click on ok. In Vista click on start to open your search box and type "cmd" When you click ok it may ask for your permission so just tell it to go ahead. At the prompt type ipconfig and let me know the sets of numbers that come up. Read through this and please answer all the questions when replying. Thanks.
P.S. - Also if you want, if you don't have it fixed yet, send me a email at email@example.com I might have a quicker way to fix this than sending comments back and forth all day and night.
Well if you upgraded the firmware it should have solve any issue. Now do you have a different wireless computer.If you do check to see if that one is detecting wireless signal.Also if you havent created a network name when you upgrade firmware router goes back to factory default settings check to see if it is (laptop)detecting default.Make sure wireless capability is on.On computer.Also check to see if wireless light on router is on.IF light is not on then there is a problem with router.Try downgrading firmware to original firmware.

If you're looking for the default username and password information for your D-Link DI-524, or perhaps how to reset it incase you've forgotten it, this website below outlines the lot of it.
Keep in mind, D-Link made a lot of revisions of this router, and one set of steps might work for one revision, and not on the other. Pay close attention to your revision. The article attached will outline where to find it (it's usually on a barcoded sticker on the underbelly of the unit).
Hi, First thing I would do if you haven't already is update to the latest firmware. follow the link below and choose the correct model/revision of the model you own from there you can download the latest firmware as well as the manual if you need it to view how to update the firmware. It is quite easy in the interface when logging into the router. If you need further assistance please let me know. Also please take the time to accept/rate my solution when you find my assistance helpful. Thank you, Lee
This model's characteristics are "Install the D-Link DFE-530TX+ adapter into a desktop computer. The four Ethernet LAN ports of the DI-524 are Auto MDI/MDIX and will work with both straight-Through and Cross-Over cable." The rest u can visit this link and satisfy yourself. NOTE: VISTA might not support this router since its been discontinued manufacture of this device quite some time back.

You don't need to install anything extra to secure the network. It's a matter of changing router settings. You set up the router through your web browser by going to "http://192.168.0.1" which accesses the device's setup screens.
There are several revisions of this product. Here is the URL for D-Link's selection page for the router:
Click on the picture that shows the version you have, and then you'll be taken to the page for that version. You can download a manual or look through the FAQ's which will guide you through the process of setting up the security.
