Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router
About 2 days ago my wifi signal kept crapping out. the router is about 20-25 feet away from my computer, but it has not been moved, nor has the computer. I can pin googles ip, I can ping my modem, I can even ping the router, but the second I open firefox and type in the router IP it doesn't connect. It doesn't connect to anything. The wifi signal is excellent (though that comes and goes) and the router works because a wired computer works fine (tis how I'm posting this). I can't understand why it would crap out randomly and be irreversible. The IP address has been switched back and forth from Static to Dynamic, the router has been reverted back to the factory settings. The Wi-Fi link on the computer has been part of a network bridge and not... nothing seems to work, and nothing seems to explain why I can ping an ip, but not access it via a web browser. any help is appreciated.
I came across the same trouble after several hours power out of the router (has to move DL-524 from room shelf to closet). In my case it lost WiFi security configuration (was no encryption and must be WPA/PSK). I set WPA back, 64-byte PSK key was not corrupted, and Dl begun to run smoothly again. After that I got an experiment and powered off Dl for a night, WiFi security settings was lost again. My be it's a feature of the device, may be I'm (we are) not so lucky :). Try to check "Wireless setup" - hope it'll be helpfull...
