Make sure you disable or uninstall any PPPoE software such as WinPoet, Broadjump, or Enternet 300 from your computer or you will not be able to connect to the Internet. Do not disable until you´ve downloaded the firmware in Step 1. Please make sure that your modem is not also a router. If it is or you do not know, please contact your ISP and change the modem to Bridge mode.

Step 1: Log into the web-based configuration by typing in the IP address of the router (default: in your web browser. Select Admin as the username and type in your password. Leave blank if you have not created or changed your password.

Note: The address is NOT on the Internet. The web-based configuration is built-in to the router.

If the router is already online, you will be taken to the STATUS page after logging in. If this is the case, the router is connected and you do not need to continue with this FAQ.

Step 2: Click the Setup tab and then click Internet on the left side.


Step 3: Click on the Manual Configure button.


Step 4: Select PPPoE (username/password) from the My Internet Connection is drop down menu and enter the following settings:

# Address Mode: Select the Dynamic IP radio button, unless your ISP (Internet Service Provider) supplied you with a static IP address.
# Username and Password: Enter the username and password your ISP gave you. In most cases your username is the same as your email address provided by your internet provider (example:
# Reconnect Mode: Should be set to On Demand
# MTU and Maximum Idle Time: Should be left at the defaults (MTU: 1492 / Maximum Idle Time: 20) unless specifically instructed otherwise by your ISP.


Step 5: Click on the Save Setting button to save the changes.

Step 1: Open a web browser and type the IP address of the D-Link DIR series router into the address bar (default is Press Enter

Step 2: The default username is admin (all lower case) and the default password is blank (nothing). Click on OK.

Step 3: Click on the Setup tab at the top and then click on Wireless Settings on the lefthand side.


Step 4: From the Wireless Security Mode dropdown menu, select WPA-Personal encryption.

Step 5: From the WPA Mode dropdown, Under WPA, select the form of WPA you would like to use.

Use WPA or WPA2 mode to achieve a balance of strong security and best compatibility. This mode uses WPA for legacy clients while maintaining higher security with stations that are WPA2 capable. Also the strongest cipher that the client supports will be used.

For best security, use WPA2 Only mode. This mode uses AES(CCMP) cipher and legacy stations are not allowed access with WPA security.

For maximum compatibility, use WPA Only. This mode uses TKIP cipher. Some gaming and legacy devices work only in this mode. To achieve better wireless performance use WPA2 Only security mode (or in other words AES cipher).

Step 6: In the Pre-Shared Key box, enter the desired Pre-shared key.

This is the “password” that allows communication between you’re encrypted client (e.g. the PSP or your wireless computer) and the encrypted wireless signal coming from the router. This password must contain at least 8 characters, the characters can be anything you can create from your keyboard.

Step 7: Click on Save Settings to save your settings.

The winner will be announced in the second part of the review which will be posted this weekend. So lets get down to business, how do you enter the drawing?


How to enter:

There are two ways to enter; the first way is the post a reply to this news post. It is important that you post a new reply, do not reply to someone’s comment as that will not enter you into the drawing!

The second way to enter is to re-tweet this news post but you must do it in a certain fashion. After you click the re-tweet link, make sure to add @dlinkpress and @bdsams to the tweet! It is important to do it this way to make sure your information gets pulled into the pool so you have a chance at winning.

Finally, you can enter each day up until the drawing (but not more than once per day, we can tell if you do) using both methods. There are no restrictions on location either, anyone can enter and anyone can win! Good Luck!

How to configure wireless channel on D-Link DI-624?

If you cannot change the wireless channel of your VDI-624 (set to channel 6), this means that Super G™ is enabled. Super G will always be set to channel 6 but it actually uses most of the channel range between 1 and 11, which allows increased bandwidth. If you do not want to use Super G, then disable it and this will allow you to use a specific channel.

Step 1: Open a web browser and type the IP address of the VDI-624 in the address bar (default is Press Enter.

Step 2: The default username and password.

Step 3: Click the Advanced tab at the top and then click Performance on the left.
