Question about D-Link DIR-625 (790069292637) Wireless Router

Side Button - Blue Light

Hello Everyone,

I purchased the DIR-625 a few weeks ago (my old one died) and I'm fairly happy with it, but recently my internet connection kept dropping over and over again, and it kept telling me I had to repair the connection. I tried hooking up my pc directly to my modem and the odd time it drops but it's working fine. Is the router the problem??

Also, I just noticed there is this small square button on the side of it. I tried pressing it and all it did was start flashing blue. Does anyone know what it is? The reset button is on the back, is this another "reset" button?

Please help!

Curious from Toronto, ON

    We had the same problem, the blue light was flashing and we hadn't done anything to it! Also, we cannot find it in the owners manual and we've searched Google looking for answers, but so far nobody has a clear idea what its for!



    HELP!

    LOL

    I'm on the internet too, trying to find out why this router has a large button that flashs blue when you click it.

    It's not labled in the owners manual.

    It's pretty but what does it do?

Every time you press the flashing blue button someone you dont know will die and you will receive $1000000 dollars, oh wait that was the plot to a **** movie. It's for hooking up other computers or devices that are wps security enabled.

Solution - maybe!

I emailed D-link and they sent back this:

From your email it seems that you need an information of the small button on DIR-615 product.
Kindly click on the link given below for the resources for WPS :
http://www.support.dlink.com/faq/view.asp?prod_id=3095&question=WPS

N:B- The above link which is given is from www.support.dlink.com website which is for US customers. Kindly do not download any manuals , drivers or firmware from this website since it is not for UK customers.
===========================================

(You have to enter the site first, Oh, and that's actually for the D-Link 615).

Seems it's something to do with WPS. Still not super clear though!

How do I reset my D.Link DIR-625 router if I forgot the password?


Thank you for posting on fixya. Am pleased to help you.
I understood your issue and I would request you to follow the below steps. Note: Once reset is done, DIR-625 will have the default settings.
Look on the rear side of DIR-625. There should be a small hole, usually just to the
left of the power jack on DLinks. Inside that hole is a small button. Find
something small enough to press and hold it while the DIR-625 is powered up.
While pressing and holding, watch the lights on the front. With DLinks, its
usually the M1 and M2 lights that will go solid while holding the reset
button. Keep holding the reset until they start blinking. Its now reset.

To reconfigure:
1. Type in 192.168.2.1 on your web browser. 2. At Router's login page, type your username and password(Default Username: admin Password: (blank) ). 3.Once you are in, browse the different tabs for various settings. [ Contact DLINK customer support for details. Toll free number on products box] .
Thank you an have a great day. Feedbacks are appreciated.

I dont know what the blue light is for on the side of my dir-615


Wow, it is not mentioned at all in the manual at http://static.tigerdirect.com/pdf/D-Link-DIR-615-Manual.pdf - in fact no lights on the side are mentioned at all.
My first guess was that the router had bluetooth but that is not true in the one I looked at.
Now there is a picture in the manual on page 7, and all the lights are identified. Maybe you can look at the pic and figure out which light it is? Although I would call the surface that all the lights are on the front, not the side.

Cannot configure D-Link DIR 625 wireless router


Hey Raj - Unplug your modem and router. After 60 seconds plug your modem back in. When the lights return to normal (except the activity light) , plug your router back in. Give it 10 seconds and try it. If this solves your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If not, DO NOT RATE YET. Just add a comment letting me know what happened and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.
