Post 3+ Months Ago

I recently purchased a D-Link wireless router (DI-524) and I use Aol Dsl Broadband. I had everything properly hooked up, and as far as I know I set up the router page the right way (PPPoE, MTU-1400) but I get no connection to the internet. I have posted this problem over many websites and forums, and this is my last hope.

If I go directly from my modem to my computer it's fine. If I go computer-router-modem then I can't connect. Are there any failsafes that I should check? My firmware is up to date as well. I can provide any further information if needed. Thank you.

I have done that dozens of times. I have reset it dozens of times. I have had it for over a month and by now I can't return, and I try it everyday. I was just curious if there was something particular to AOL that was stopping this.

There is only one connected so far (the one that is configuring it) and it is hardwired.

I used to have the same problem, only difference was that I have a Linksys router, I fixed the problem by taking the check mark off from the Internet Filtering option. Now like I said this is from a Linksys router options, I dont know if this may apply to your router. Good Luck.

did you clone the MAC address of the PC to the Router? Some DSL providers mate the modem to the PC's MAC

I need to know a few things first
1: DHCP or STATIC
2: did you use the wizard in the router to set up your network?
3: Check all your address ip. gateway, and dns if you run the setup wizard it should do this all automaticly
I have a DI-624 it should be similar mine is just wireless
let me know on these few issues
I am sure it is the setup of your router that is preventing you from accessing the internet.
ifyou want you can e-mail screen shots of you setup page in your router so i can see what your router looks like it may be like mine

i have had this same problems a few times I usualy just renew my ip address and restart all hardware ie(modem, router and coputer)

Wow okay, everything is fixed. I followed these steps:


1. Rip Dlink out of network

2. Insert in trash

3. Purchase Linksys WRT54G on sale for $45 at Officemax

4. Install Linksys router

5. Voila!!

Thanks for all your help, I'm sorry that I was such a pain. Good luck all.
