I have installed a D-Link DI-524 wireless/ethernet router between my

finish (it says `exim4' in the end) and I have no internet connection in

Are you sure you aren't seeing MTA?
If you are, that is probably exim starting, which on a few of my
systems caused boot delays. This caused no problem however, in my case
at least.

exim is the systems mailer, delevering mail between users, on certain
events, etc.

Have you tried ifconfig after you are logged in? You will have to
either use sudo, or su from a non-privelaged account.
