configure DI-524 AirPlus G 2.4GHz Wireless Router

107 100+
Its my first time configuring DI-524 AirPlus G 2.4GHz Wireless Router. Infact the router is already configured but it is not secured. So i just wanted to make the network secure for which i didnt know how to access the configuration panel. The manual suggests accessing http://192.168.0.1 in the browser but for me nothing turns up. Infact what i am doing is that i have a cat5 cable directly connected to the router LAN port and a pc. Now i have configured the pc NIC with ip 192.168.0.1. Here the router manual donot have the instruction as to how the cables should be connected so that we can access the router configuration page. And above all i didnt find a console port which would else help me solve this issue.

Please advice me. Manual suggest connecting the UTP cable to LAN Port1 of the router and the NIC of my pc. Now what ip should i give to my NIC. Is there anything that needs to be done further or is it necessary to install some software.

If you have a wireless router, you can look at your default gateway on a computer connected to it (ipconfig /all). I'm not familiar with AirPlus, but most home wireless routers have a page that you can visit via web browser.

Just type in http://default_gateway_ip_address

Once you configure that to use WPA (please don't use WEP unless you have to - and know that WEP is not very secure), it'll kick you back out, and you just need to configure your current wireless to use that WPA key.

thankyou for your reply. Well i have gone through the ips of one of the dhcp client pc (router is dhcp host) and found out that router does have the 192.168.0.1 (gateway) address. Something unusual was that the dns is 192.168.1.1. Infact this ip (192.168.1.1) is the private LAN address where this pc is connected to. (May be this will puzzle you all, so i want to make it clear. The pc from where i am trying to access the router is a wireless client. It has some address 192.168.0.xx and the gateway is 192.168.0.1. I have another NIC in the pc for the LAN within the office with ip 192.168.1.1 (static). Now when i do ipconfig /all in the pc, i get all the configuration details but one thing that surprises me is the dns address acquired from the router which is 192.168.1.1 which is exactly the same that i have given it to the pc for the office LAN. So, this is what the present situation is.)

Nevertheless, the router address is the same as the default one 192.168.0.1. But when I try to access the router in the browser, it says cannot display. So i am stuck then.

Windows has a lot of trouble with this type of configuration - why are you trying to put two active NICs on a box?
