View Full Version : DI-524 can't get on the internet

03-23-2006, 04:16 PM
I have searched this forum related to my questions but found no answer.

I Use DI-524 (http://www.dlink.com/products/?pid=316) for my router.

I have the cable modem & DI-524 router setup correctly.
I can see my SSID on wireless, I connected with WEP.
And it's said connected, when I try to go to any web site. It can't go through. I can only access the main DI-524 portal.

When I do a ipconfig it gives:

Ethernet adapter Wireless Network Connection:

Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . :
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . :
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :

How can I get on the WWW, I try to use LAN, it's gives me limited connection.

Any setting I need to setup? I have try to turn on HTTP port, HTTPS, no luck at all with private IP & clone my MAC address up on the DI-524 portal.

I really need help in a day or I can't return the router. thanks

How to Physically Connect the D-Link

1. Plug an Ethernet cable into the DSL modem. Plug the other end of the cable into the "WAN" port on the D-Link.
2. Using an Ethernet cable, plug any wired computers into any of the 4 Ethernet ports on the D-Link.

How to Access the D-Link Configuration Screen
The D-Link is configured using a Web browser. After you have connected your computer to the D-Link router, follow these steps:

1. Launch your Web browser. Enter "" into the address bar and press the "Enter" or "Return" key.
2. A logon pop-up screen will appear. Type "admin" for the username and leave the password field blank.
3. Click "OK". A D-Link configuration screen will appear. All changes to the D-Link configuration are made here.

Change the Admin password
Leaving the password blank is not a good idea. It should be changed to something more secure. To change the password, go to the D-Link configuration screen and:

1. Click the "Tools" tab.
2. Click the "Admin" button.
3. Under the "Administrator" heading, enter the new password, and a second time to confirm.
4. Click "Apply".
5. The next time you access the D-Link configuration screen, you will need to enter the new Admin password.

Disable the Wireless LAN
If wireless access is not necessary, you should disable the wireless part of the D-Link. This will prevent anyone from accessing the network wirelessly. (If you are using the wireless features, please skip down to "Wireless Security Measures".) From the D-Link configuration screen:

1. Click the "Home" tab.
2. Click the "Wireless" button.
3. Click the "Disabled" button next to "Wireless Radio".
4. Click "Apply".
5. You are done securing your wired network. No further action is required.

Enable WEP
Enabling WEP* (Wired Equivalent Privacy) will require anyone wishing to access the Internet through your wireless network to enter a password. After the correct password is entered, a connection is established, and all data sent from the D-Link to the computer and back is encrypted. From the D-Link configuration screen:

1. Click the "Home" tab.
2. Click the "Wireless" button.
3. Click the "Open System" button next to "Authentication".
4. Set the "WEP Encryption" to "128 bit".
5. Set the "Key Type" to "ASCII".
6. Type a 13 digit password into "Key 1".
7. Click "Apply".
8. When you connect to your wireless network from a computer, you will need to enter the 13 digit password.
*Note: If your computer's operating system supports it, enabling WPA-PSK is more secure than WEP. The steps above can be modified to set up WPA-PSK.

Change the SSID and Disable SSID Broadcasting
By default, the D-Link is set to advertise the existence of your wireless network to computers. It does this by broadcasting an SSID (Service Set Identifier), also called a "network name" because it identifies your wireless network. Changing the SSID and disabling SSID broadcasting makes it harder for someone to locate the network. Note that if you disable SSID broadcasting, you will have to know the SSID in order to connect wirelessly to your network. From the D-Link configuration screen:

1. Click the "Home" tab.
2. Click the "Wireless" button.
3. Change the "SSID" from "default" to an SSID of your choice.
4. Click "Disabled" next to "SSID Broadcast".
5. Click "Apply".
6. When you connect to your wireless network from a computer, you will need to enter the SSID.

MAC Address Filtering
The D-Link can be set up to only allow access to certain computers. This can be done with or without WEP enabled. This is done by allowing access to the network based on the MAC address of the computer's network card (note: in this context, the term "MAC" is not related to Macintosh computers). The MAC address is a unique number that identifies a network device, such as a Wireless or Ethernet card. A MAC address can also be referred to as "Physical Address", "Hardware Address", "Ethernet ID", "Airport ID", etc. An example of a MAC address is 00:30:65:9c:2e:4f.

While MAC address filtering is a very good security measure to implement, it is also very restrictive, and some users might find it inconvenient to configure. For networks that are large, or that frequently change computers, MAC address filtering might be more hassle than it is worth. However, it is a very effective way to protect your network.

From the D-Link configuration screen:

1. Click the "Advanced" tab.
2. Click the "Filters" button.
3. Select the "MAC Filters" radio button.
4. Select "Only allow computers with MAC address listed below to connect to the network".
5. Type the name of the computer and its MAC address (we recommend starting with the MAC address of the computer that you are configuring).
6. Click "Apply".
7. Repeat Steps 5 and 6 for each additional computer that should have access to the network.

Do you have the latest firmware? Go to > Tools Tab > Misc Button on left > Find this "WAN select to 10/100 Mbps" > This should be set to 10 or 10/100 auto.

i will do that.. then it should work rite?

Hopefully. If it was set to 100 then that could be the problem.
