    Did you check with tech support at DLINK if there are any know issues with this device? Also when last did you update the firmware? Those are task I would consider first.

    Okay do this...

    1. shutdown the other lan computers
    2. Reset this router and turn it off
    3. connect one LAN com to this router
    4. turn on PC connected to this router and turn on router
    5. connect to the router gui and see if it sees the PC connected to it.
    6. Make sure all connections DHCP, DNS, Gateway, Subnet area all correct.
    7. Ping this site and see if it's pingable..

    hum; I found DSL-500 but not the 500t; suggest you call or email D-Link support
    re firmware update for your device. If at all possible, I would apply the update.

    There's no reason for your router to present Gateway Offline to your LAN systems.
    Just be sure it's not reporting the ISP gateway offline.

    Here's the link for the 500 firmware.
    BE CAUTIOUS
