Question about D-Link DI 514 Wireless Router (DI-514)
It sound like you trying to connect to the modem, and not the router.
Most routers are set up on 192.168.1.1 for the admin address. Attempt to connect to this address, and you should get a login page. Use your login (default or configured) to configure your router.
Hope this helps!

Is your rourter on for a long period of time?, I have problems with 614 (almost the same as 514). the unit always hangs and I always loose all connections. I discovered that it was overheating. I tried to opern the case and the problem disappeared. I eventually put a small fan. Try to power off the system and cool it down, and as soon as you turn it on, perform the configuration.

If the router is working in other respects, you probably don't need a new one. I wonder if this isn't a firewall problem, or if some other service is keeping you from this page? Try re-booting in safe mode (With networking), then enter the url and see if you get to the router page. For most computers, you can get to safe mode by repeatedly pressing the F8 key when you re-boot. Just keep tapping the key until you see the screen that offers safe mode (With networking).

You seem to be following the correct procedure, so the only thing left to do is re-set the router. My best guess is that the router password was inadvertently changed at some point. Reset to default settings: The following reset procedure will completely restore the default settings on the router including your password. Step 1 Locate the reset pinhole on the back of the unit. Step 2 With the router powered on, press and hold the Reset button. Step 3 Hold the Reset button for about 10 seconds. Step 4 Release the Reset button. Step 5 The device is now at factory defaults. The default username is admin and leave the password blank. You'll need to follow all the steps you performed initially to re-connect to your ISP.

Tips for a great answer:
You might want to check with your provider to make sure that they haven't changed anything. Power cycle the modem, and even perform a hard reset if possible, usually by means of a small button on the back of the box.
Of course you could have just got a bad modem, and in that case, it's just as easy to take it back where you bought it.
