Question about D-Link DSL 604+ (DSL-604+) Wireless Router

1 Answer

Random Disconnection and WLan indicator lights

Every once in a while I lose my network connection, though the PC (or any other laptop that is connected to the router) does not recognize it. The WLan indicator lights constantly instead of the regular flashes. Restarting the router helps but this happens once in a few hours.

Re: Random Disconnection and WLan indicator lights

Saw this on another post for this router: "in the DHCP configuration on LAN menu. the lease time was set to 72 hours (3 days) i change it to 720 hours, cos that was the most it would allow... so hopefully that would fix it. " maybe you're having the same problem. another usefull thing to do is to update the firmware from the D-link site. some stability issues such as this should be fixed by a firmware update. post what happened goo luck ;]

Note that incoming traffic will cause the WAN (or Internet) light to blink even if it is 'probe' traffic trying to break in to your network. Such traffic is to be expected and is the reason you have firewall functionality in your gateway router.

On the inside, there is a bit of traffic on any LAN when the computers are turned on. Messages generated by the router itself are used to find computers and printers for a lot of different legitimate reasons.

I'm using a HP dv6-1101ax notebook. Recently, we switched to using a Belkin F5D8235-4 wireless N Router. Every laptop in the network works fine except for mine, which constantly disconnects about 5-30...

You cant trust HP anymore, my dad had 3 of their laptops and they all did the same thing and after about a year the motherboard crashed.
I suggest if you are sitting near the router, then buy a short LAN cable to hook up, then it should work.
Hope this helps

My wlan light keep going on and off on my wrt54g

Also check if the power light on your router is blinking. If it is blinking, that's an indication of hardware failure. To revive it, do a hard reset. Press and hold the power button of the router for 30 seconds then unplug the power. Wait for 30 seconds again before you plug it back in.

Reset everything including the Hard reset (a small probably hidden button you must press for 15 seconds) you will find somewhere on the wireless router. I trust your laptop is capable of connecting wirelessly???and you have done this before???

Wlan lights off and now wirless access

Does your computer say Network cable unplugged?
If the wlan light is off, it means that your computer is not being detected by your router. You can try unplugging and replugging the ethernet cable at the back of the computer. Make sure that you hear a 'click' when you plug it back in to make sure tha it is properly seated. Check also the light on the wan port (desktops usually have lights..not sure about laptops though).
Do the same process with the ethernet cable but now from the other end--the one connected to the modem/router. if your modem/router have other ports on it, try to connect it to other ports as well. If you're wan light is still off, try using a different ethernet cable.
what's wrong with your wireless access? i can't read it from the title.

Wlan light orange

Orange WLAN light means no connectivity to the network. Try to reconnect to your wireless network and make sure to enter the correct wireless settings like the network key and SSID.

Orange blink of death!!!

Hello houng_lee,

I have the exact same modem, if the modem/router light is blinking, that indicates a problem with the modem. You indicate that you have internet connectivety, so you should have modem light solid blue. When you look at the Wireless light it's probably off. Which means that at this point you have internet connectivety, you should put the cd in and run through the wireless connection wizard on the CD. It will check to see 1) if you have internet connection, 2) the type of connection you have (comcast) 3) if you have any wireless devices to be hooked up. 4) That all connections are working properly.

If you have a laptop that you want to connect to the wireless router, have it next to the router, so once you've finished setting up your Wireless security and issing a WEP number for local access, you can test your setting immediately with the Laptop. I always suggest that you create a WEP number for securty reason, If you perfer not to create a WEP number, and leave it as an open access (which is fine, and easier to setup) make sure that you shut off broadcasting, So your neigborhood doesn't jump online once they see an open access router.

If you've tried these steps let me know what problems your getting during the wizard setup. It will tell you if everything is setup correctly, or their is an error. Right now, I think the problem is your setup, and it's not communicating correctly. But, the wizard will tell you that as well.

Let me know,

Good Luck

Problem connecting wirelessly using netgear router MR814v2

Hi, you should consider changing your security to WPA-PSK or WPA2-PSK encryption instead of WEP as WEP can be cracked in a matter of minutes, even 128bit keys can be cracked easily. Plus there's no confusion over the four WEP keys generated.

With WPA you choose the key so it can be a word instead of random key, making it easier to remember. Just make sure its not a simple word that can be guessed, and use random numbers or characters so something like 64ranDomWordz92. Its case sensitive too so chucking in capitals makes it even harder to guess. Don't forget to write it down in case you forget it, make sure you write it correctly.

Now you know which key your using, go to manage wireless networks on your laptop and delete any profile you have for your network. Now when you try to connect, it will ask for your WPA / WPA2 passkey, just type it in and hit enter, you should now be connected.

Let me know if you need help with any of the above.

WLAN does not work

Can you try and reset the router once. I guess that should help . There should be a reset button behind the router and the reset procedure should be present in the manual
