how to enable DHCP permanently?

Specs: win xp, 3.4ghz/1gb

i have link up 2 pc sharing internet via cable modem and a D-link 524 router. this is the first time i tried networking. the problem is, when ever i power off the pc, cable modem and router, i'll have to go thru the D-link setup wizard again to get connected.(enabling DHCP) is there a way i can save it permanently?

thanks.

also, as the 2 pc are connected via ethernet cable, how do i disable the wireless function? there seem to have no disable option in the D-link wizard.

Are you sure you are saving the dettings before exiting the modem setup?

There is usually a seperate button to do this and it can take a few seconds as the information is written to flash memory in the router. It is not normally saved automatically.

"Are you sure you are saving the dettings before exiting the modem setup?"

do you mean the router's setup wizard? if yes, i don't see any "save" button in it?

You should access the router's setup page instead of using the wizard. Use your browser and enter the IP address of the router. Then check the DHCP setting and use the SAVE button on the setup page.

i apologise if i did not make it clear on my earlier post.

yes, i did access to the router's setup page using the web browser. but there isn't any "save" button. i just double checked it. does anyone who have a D-link router here? maybe you could give some advice on this?

thanks.

There is a button on each setup page. A green green one with a tick in it marked Apply.

This is the one you press.

If this doesnt wrok then you need to contact Dlink as the flash memory might ne faulty.
