If your Internet connection cannot be detected(or if you click the Prev button after the previous step), you will need to select which type of Internet connection you have. Select your Internet connection type, then click the Next button and enter the related settings.

Note: Most cable modem connections use DHCP, and most DSL modem connections use PPPoE. If you are not sure which connection type you use or what settings to enter, contact your Internet service provider.

              Hi. I got a DIR-506L, which seems to work, but I have a few problems that may be user problems.

              The device seems to work okay as a router, which is one of the things that I wanted. I also want to use it as an ethernet adapter. I find that I can make that work when it is in repeater mode. The problem is, that there seems to be no way to access the device to get it to work in some other mode, or even to change access points, without doing a factory reset. After a factory reset, I need to put the passwords back in, set the time zone, doing a device reboot for each step. Surely I can access the device, somehow, without having to do a factory reset (yes, I did change the IP address to the proper range, and it is unique, because I have a DIR-655 that I use it with). The best solution that I have found, is to do a basic setup in router mode, and save the settings. At least I can do the factory reset, and load most of my settings before changing the mode back to repeater, just to select a new access point.

              Any suggestions? Thanks…

                I think I found part of the answer. This device gets a DHCP address, when it connects. In my case, it gets 192.168.0.104 (this time). That does not respond to http://dlinkrouter.local, but it does respond to the IP address. After logging in, I get to the setup menu, which allows me to select the mode etc. Much better than a factory reset. The question now is, how do I find that address, when I am not on my own network, where I can look at my router?

                Hello, my DIR-506L does not see 3G modems! I tried Huawei E3131 and ZTE MF100. There is NO option in menu to set up 3G Internet connection. Yet, the router is advertised as supporting 3G dongles. How to realize that??
