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 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.

D Link 524 password

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).

Hope this helps!

DI-524 status problem

Did this happen after a firmware upgrade? If so, this link may help:

Apparently there's a utility which will force firmware to load on the router. The steps are a bit technical, though.

If that doesn't work, the router is probably toast. Time for a new one.

Change from 'unsecure' to 'secure' router

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 "" 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.
