Question about ASUS WIRELESS ROUTER |WL-520G - RT (WL520G)

1 Answer

Networking Problem Hi, Im currently using XP SP3 and currently have a cable modem ( motorola sb4 200 ) and a brand new asus wl-520gu. When i connect directly to the computer via the modem it works fine however when i go through the router it will not work. I have tried the following to fix it but still no solution; Turn off and reset about a thousand times Disable all firewalls etc etc etc Called my ISP but will not offer any support for the router. I was previously using a D LINK WRT54Gs and worked perfectly until it broke down a few days ago. Please offer some help or if possible find out if the modem and router dont match because i cannot see anywhere on the web where it says so. Cheers Shaun

    hey mate, nah it didnt fix it but i did get it fixed i just created a static ip address then applied the settings then reverted back to automatic config and it picked up all the new settings and works fine. Weird i kow but hey maybe it could help others if they tried that.

    I have CavTel DSL with slow (400-500) but usable service. When I bought and introduced a WL-520GU router, no wired or wireless internet connection could be established. After numerous powerdowns and canned remedies, and calls to both CavTel and ASUS Techs (pointing fingers at each other), the ASUS tech said the unit must be faulty. This morning I just received the replacement (out $10.00 shipping the return) and fonund the same problem.

    Another call to CavTel this time highlighted I'm 16900 feet from the DSL source, and they are NOW saying wireless routers will only support DSL up to about 12000 feet. It's obvious the router (any wireless router?) is further degrading the DSL signal to oblivion.

    This second router going back today (another $10.00 freight).

    For $20.00 I learned to live with my wired DSL.

    Thought you'd like to know.

When you are connected to your modem, find out what your IP address is....(double click on the icon in the lower left corner of your monitor) under the support tab it will give you your IP address you are being issued from your ISP. Now go ahead and connect the router and then connect your pc to your router. Go to your web based settings of your router....(type 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 into an open browser window) admin is usually the username and password. From there you will want to go to "status"...make sure the same ip address was assigned to your router as it was assigned to your PC. If not you will have to release and renew to have your ISP re-assign to your new router. Within those settings ensure there is nothing prohibiting you from accessing the internet....your router will have a built in firewall as well as have mac filtering and certain other security settings. Let me know if this helps....once you have done this I will check back and assist you further if this is unsuccessful.

Good Luck

I cant reset asus rt-n10e routr


When the WL-520GU is powered on

  • Holding the reset button for 15-20 seconds will cause the WL-520GU to reboot.
  • Upon reboot, a pressed reset button causes the WL-520GU to go into firmware restoration mode. This does NOT reset the defaults (see the section below for more information on the firmware restoration mode).
  • Since there is little to no warning of the exact instant the WL-520GU will reboot when holding the reset button, chances are extremely good that the reset button will still be depressed and cause the WL-520GU to go into firmware restoration mode. Hard booting the WL-520GU will get the WL-520GU back, but settings will NOT be reset.

When the WL-520GU is booting

  • Holding the reset button during the boot sequence will reset the unit to its defaults.
  • Care must be taken to press the reset button right after the power light turns off immediately after powering on the WL-520GU and not before, to avoid going into firmware restoration mode.

Based on the above, it should be fairly self-evident that the following procedure is recommended for using the reset button on the WL-520GU.

  1. Unplug the WL-520GU
  2. Plug in the WL-520GU
  3. The power light will blink
  4. As soon as the power light turns off, press and hold the reset button
  5. Hold the reset button until the power and wireless buttons glow green.
  6. The WL-520GU should now be reset to its defaults

if you can not remember the password than the ownly thing you can do is a reset (according to manual) than you will be able to log in using default user and password (YOU WILL LOOSE ALL SETTINGS) so you will have to re configure the router...

Have fun!

Asus WL 520gu can't connect internet


1, connect your wireless router with cable to your laptop,
2. Login into your Asus-WL520gu and setup your wireless how you want it to run." do not bother with putting your username settings in there"
3. In your Asus-WL-520gu after setting up your wireless turn the DHCP off in it.
4. Now connect the cable that you have connected to your laptop to your router instead of your laptop.
""You should now be able to connect to the wireless with your settings. and connect anything ells you want to the other 4 ports on the back of you wireless router"" note: do not connect anything to the WAN port as it is used for DSL modems; and not Routers with ADSL modem.
when connecting a router to a router - the one that is connecting you to the internet needs DHCP turned on because it is the one that will be giving you IPs and Gateway settings - the other router such as wireless router after setting it up needs its DHCP turned off - other wise you will have 2 routers trying to do the same thing with ip's and gateways. And you should never connect a modem router to the WAN port as it is a modem router and NOT just a DSL-modem. The WAN port is intended for DSL-modems only. Not only consumers but also many technicians make that mistake

Hi Like,

Unplug the router, Don't hook it to anything but you PC you are have the CD in. Use the cable that came with the unit, plug it into your pc ethernet port and one of the 4 ports marked LAN. Make sure not use the port marked WAN. Make sure you use the ethernet cable, not the USB. Power up the router, and put the easystart cd in. Once it autostarts, press the Easy Setup button on the router for about 8-10 sec. The Easy Setup on your screen should respond. From there out, follow the prompts.
For the manual, follow this link.
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx

The quick start should solve your setup connection issues, if you have any. Also, make sure you have your firewalls disabled. And re-enable them what you are done, to be safe!

Good Luck!
