    I am trying to set up a wireless connection through a D-Link DI-524 router that I've had for several years. I am attempting to set this up on my HP Pavilion g6 computer, running Windows 7. I've downloaded the installer from the D-Link website (this installer is said to work with the DI-524 router), and follow all the instructions. Every time I do, I get "Error 112 - Incorrect Router", which says:

    "Quick Router Setup does not detect a supported D-Link router. You can use this wizard only with selected D-Link routers.
    Make sure that the Ethernet cable from your computer is connected to blue port number 1 on the back of the router. Then, click Retry. (I have done this several times.)
    Please check on the D-Link website to see if there is a firmware upgrade available for your router."

    I would rather not try to mess around with a firmware upgrade unless I have to. I thought I'd check in here and see if there's something I'm doing wrong, or if the router's incompatible with Windows 7 or something else on my computer, or something else. Here's the TSG SysInfo result, in case it'll help:

    Yes, you are trying to use some "wizard" or "installer." :D Just login to the router and configure it. Consult the user manual if needed.
