D-Link DI-524 Router

I used the router for wireless and two wired computers. Recently I switched from DSL modem to cable modem and the wireless became intermittent. My IMAC and my laptop can only see the router every one in a while, and very weak - can't open any browser as it times out. I've tried physically moving the router right beside the laptop - same thing. I have reset the router, as well as gone through the setup wizard. No difference. I purchased a new D-Link router WBR-1310, thinking the 524 is broken. Same thing - wired connections work great, but the wireless can barely be seen. I've tried with and without WEP password. Any ideas?

    After going back to the supplier it seems that the 524 wasn't working properly. I did get WBR working properly. Thanks for your help.

You have interference...go into router and override the channel selection from auto to a different channel. The band is limited by the FCC and most manufacturers tend to default to the same channel (frequency). Dont confuse this with band...ex. G, N, B, A You want the actual frequency to change. Good luck

Can i use a wireless cable modem gateway (netgear) to make my current dsl modem connection wireless.


If your DSL-modem has one Ethernet port, then use an Ethernet cable to connect from that port to the WAN port on your NetGear router. Then, the router will provide both "wired" and "wireless" connections to your computers & devices.

Share Your Internet Connection with More Than One Computer- The Easy Way


Here is a simple way share your home internet connection with more than one computer. This will work for both wired and wireless and doesn't require alot of technical or computer skills to accomplish. I'm sure there are other ways, but if you're looking for a simple repeatable setup, here it is.

If you've got a dsl connection through a dsl modem, this TIP will work for you.
If you've got a cable modem, this TIP will work just as well.

Here's a list of what you'll need.

  1. Dsl or cable modem that works on your system and you can access internet with one computer (If you're using the internet, most likely you've got this already).
  2. Wired (Ethernet) or Wireless Router (wifi routers have 4-6 ethernet ports also).
  3. For Wired: Ethernet cable to connect modem to router.
  4. For Wireless: Wifi compatible computer or wifi card for your computer (follow manufacturer's instructions for proper install).
Procedure:
  1. Turn all components off. This includes anything on your existing network- computer, modem, printer and any router you may currently be using.
  2. With all power off, connect an ethernet cable between your modem and your new cable/dsl router(wired or wireless).
  3. Turn on the power to your new router only and let it boot up completely.
  4. Turn on the dsl/cable modem and allow it to boot. Since the router was booted first, the modem with recognize the router's MAC address (ethernet numerical address) and connect that address to the internet.
  5. Connect all the other components onto the router with the ethernet cables as needed and turn on the components- no particular order is necessary after the router and modem are booted. Your router will assign MAC addresses to all the ethernet components. Once the MAC address is assigned, your computer should work correctly with the internet and shouldn't drop out when the second computer is turned on.
  6. For wireless connections, boot up your computer with the properly installed Wifi card, airport card and allow it to "find" your router. Once you get confirmation of the signal, you're good to go.
Following this procedure will allow your modem, your router to use their designed software to connect you without a bunch of programming. You will actually enjoy having more than one computer sharing an internet connection.

Remember this procedure and follow the steps again if you lose power and have to reboot your network.

Recently i am using a d-link glb-802c router modem.i have noticed that i can access net without ethernet cable & the lan led is not lit when i am using this.is this abnormal?


This is a wireless router, so yes, you should be able to access the internet without a cable. The router also only supports wired lan, not wireless.

Can I setup a cable modem with a router


You can if the router is wireless and you have a wireless card in your computers. If not, then you will have to upgrade the router to a wireless and get wireless cards in the computers or run a cable to the 2nd floor

I don't know how to connect my router. please help


If you have DSL or cable internet, disconnect the ethernet cable going from the DSL or cable internet modem to the computer. Disconnect the end of that cable that plugs into the modem. Connect an ethernet cable from your cable or DSL modem to the router where it says something like "modem", "internet", or "in". If the router is a wired router, connect the ethernet cable that is still attached to the computer to any open ethernet port on the router.

Have SBCglobal with 2wire but want N wireless capability


Follow the dots -

2 wire DSL wire to back of DSL modem.

Ethernet cable out of DSL modem, to current router (if you have one).

Ethernet cable out of current router (if you have one) to new Wireless N router.

If you currently have a wireless G router, keep it, or, use the new Wireless G/N router alone. You will need to set up all security settings again if you remove your current router, and if the new router is N only, you will need to make sure all your wireless connecting computers have wireless N cards in them.

CAN A 2WIRE DSL ROUTER WORK WITH A CABLE INTERNET CONEECTION


The 2wire dsl modem/router cannot be use with a another cable modem , since this 2wire device is also a modem/router and its made for the DSL conenction that's why it wont work with Cox cable, the best thing that you can do is to ask Cox to give a wireless modem/router like this 2wire so you can still use the wireless connection of your computer..

Hope that helps..........

Recently had a Belkin Wireless system install at home that keeps dropping the line in my room so want to use ASDL cable to connect to my computer what is the best modem card to get to do this


Your ISP should provide you with an external modem that would be connected to your phone line, then you would connect the modem to one of the wired connections on the back of the router, or directly to the back of your computer.

However, if you insist on an internal modem, I would suggest either a U.S. Robotics or Encore brand.
