 the solution is to unplug all network cables, and plug only in the power cable, let it run for about 15 seconds, and then plug in your WAN + all other network cables. You're going to have to do this everytime for every restart of the router. =============== if it does  not helps , then router is fully busted/or gone short circuit internally. Experience has taught me that this type of problem is typical of a lightning strike or at least a power surge in your DSL/WAN connection. In some cases, even the networking (LAN) card(s) of the PC(s) are also affected.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Sorry to be bringing you the bad news, it is a hardware fault or the firmware is lost/corrupted (most likely after an update). It has been bricked.

The only recourse is to replace the unit as repairs would be more expensive or time consuming.

Incidentally, was there any power interruption/fluctuation/outages lately? thunder storm or near lightning strike? all of which could cause the symptoms you described.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Return it they should only be on if something is plugged in, and get a linksys 4port wireless, you can run a wired machine for security or as a server for business or a gaming server, and as many wireless devices as you want, My home is totally wireless other than the machine I use to trade on, I trade equitys and options for many yrs. but even our iphones are on the network. take it back you don't need that aggravation

Hi, My d-link dl-604 suddenly stopped working. When I plug it in, only the power led and #4 lights are up. None of the other leds are responding nor the internet is not working as well. Please help. Thanks


The following reset procedure will completely restore the default settings on your D-Linkmag-glass_10x10.gif device including your password. This procedure applies to the DI-514, DI-524, DI-604, DI-614+, DI-624, DI-754, DI-764, DI-774, DI-784, DI-804V, DWL-700AP, DWL-800AP+, DWL-900AP+, DWL-1000AP+, DWL-2000AP, DWL-2100AP, DWL-6000AP, DWL-7000AP, and DWL-7100AP.

Step 1 Locate the reset pinhole on the back of the unit.

Step 2 With the unit powered on, press and hold the Reset button.

Step 3 Hold the Reset button for about 10 seconds.

Step 4 Release the Reset button.

Step 5 The unit will reboot. Allow 20-30 seconds before reconnecting.

Step 6 The device is now at factory defaults.

Note: Do not recycle power during the reset procedure.

The default user name for most D-Link devices is admin and the password is left blank.

Hope this helps! Give me thumbs please!

I can't connect to the internet or router, only wan and 1-4 local network lights up


Check the power cable,try to connect it to a different power socket.
Change the powercable and check whether the power light is up
if still the same problem then it should be the hardware issue.
Contact the manufacturer or service provider if it is under warrenty


{If it is connected through USB and getting power from the computer itself then uninstall and reinstall the USB software}

Router configuration


you need to open the configuration page of the ADSL router and enter the configuration settings manually.

into your browser type http://192.168.0.1 >> username: admin >> password: admin

then in the setup page...enter the correct setting provided by your ISP...like encapsulation...multiplexing..VPI / VCI etc...call them if you have to...then enter your username and password for your internet account (you need to contact your ISP also for this.)

if ever you still cant enter into routers setup page...you can reset it to factory default...at the back of the router...there is a small hole..(usually in red border).....

turn on router >> then push a stick into the hole (small stick enough for the hole) for about 5 secs...then try again http://192.168.0.1 >> username: admin >> passoword: admin

if you need further info...please post back. good luck

Lights are solid green: WAN, local network 1,2,3,4


If that is status of the lights on your router there's a big possibility that its already bad and needs a replacement, but you can first try to reset it and check if that will correct the problem
, To reset the router just press and hold the reset button for 30 seconds while the power is ON then after that check if the lights are back to normal if still the same light router is already bad...

Help with d-link wireless router


try a power cycle. unplug the power from the back of your modem. unplug the power from your router. shut down the computer. Plug the modem in frist wait until lights are normal. Check your cables make sure the modem is plugged into the wan port. then power on your router. wait until lights are normal plug in your laptop with a cat5 cable. start up the laptop see if your able to access the internet with the cable plugged in.

If so great your on line. open ie and goto your router ip address which i think is 192.168.0.1. its in your manual anyway. goto the wireless tab and make sure your wireless is enabled in the dlink router.


If your internet is not working then you need to setup your pppoe connection if your on dsl. and then do the wireless set up. default is usualy the ssid. [

MAC Address authentication


Even though this answer is specifically for the DI-704, the steps and concepts are the same for all other D-Link gateways. If you have a modem with a USB connection only, it will not work with any broadband router due to the need of drivers to operate the modem. The key to this type of connection is recycling the power on the cable modem after physically connecting the modem to the D-Link gateway. Before you start: When first setting up the DI-704, only connect the computer that was used when you originally set up your broadband connection. Do not use hubs or switches for initial setup. Once the gateway is up and running, you can easily add additional computers, hub, and switches to set up a more complicated LAN. Summary: Physically set up the DI-704 by connecting your computer to a LAN port and your modem to its WAN port. From the Network Properties Control Panel, make sure your network card is set to "Obtain an IP Address Automatically". Restart your computer. From the Setup page of the DI-704´s web configuration, set the WAN type to Dynamic and check the box to Enable Renew IP Forever. Click Save. From the Tools page click the button to Clone MAC, then click Reboot to apply the changes. Power down both the modem and the DI-704. Power on the modem first, letting it stabilize, then power on the DI-704. Go Online! That´s the quick, down and dirty explanation. For more detailed setup information use the following step-by-step approach below. Step-by-Step Configuration: Step 1 Connect your broadband modem to the WAN port on the DI-704. Use the same cable that was used to connect your computer to the modem. The WAN light on the DI-704 should illuminate, verifying a good physical link. Step 2 Connect the same computer that was originally connected to the modem to an open LAN port on the DI-704. The corresponding port light will illuminate verifying that you have a good physical connection. Step 3 Release and Renew the IP address for your computer. The address you renew should be in the 192.168.0.100 to 192.168.0.199 range. Use the directions below to Release and Renew your IP address. For Windows 95, 98 and Me: Go to Start>Run and enter winipcfg. Click OK. In the IP Configuration control panel, select your network adapter from the drop-down menu. Click theRelease button, then the Renew button to obtain an IP address from the DI-704. The IP configuration information shows an IP address of 192.168.0.104 and Default Gateway address of 192.168.0.1, which is the default IP address of the DI-704. This information verifies the network adapter is properly configured and the computer is communicating with the DI-704 For Windows 2000 and XP: Go to Start>Run and enter cmd. Click OK. At the DOS prompt enter, ipconfig/release and then hit the Enter key to release your IP address. Then enter, ipconfig/renew and hit Enter to renew an address from the DI-704. The IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway information will be returned with this command. Notice in this example that the IP address is 192.168.0.104 and that the default gateway is 192.168.0.1. This information verifies the network adapter is properly configured and the computer is communicating with the DI-704. For Windows NT: Click Start>Run and enter command, then click OK. At the DOS prompt, enter ipconfig/release and hit the Enter key to release your IP address. Then enter ipconfig/renew and hit Enter to renew an IP address from the DI-704. Note: If you receive any error messages at this point, you may either have a problem with the functionality of your network card, or it may not be configured to obtain an address automatically in the TCP/IP properties. Step 4 Open your browser and type 192.168.0.1 in the Address window, then hit the Enter key. You do not need to type http://, only the IP address of the DI-704. This will connect you to the web configuration utility that lets you manage the DI-704. You are not on the Internet at this point. Type admin for the System Password, then click the Login button to login. Step 5 Select the Setup menu option from the bottom of the screen. Make sure the WAN type is set to Dynamic. Check box to enable Renew IP forever. If the WAN configuration is not set to Dynamic, click the Change button and select Dynamic. Next, click the Save button and then the Reboot button on the bottom of the screen. Click OK when prompted to Reboot right now? Step 6 Next, we need to do something called cloning the MAC address. This will insure that you can connect through your modem in the event that the MAC address, or physical address, of your network card has been registered with your ISP. Cloning the MAC copies the MAC address of your ethernet card to the WAN port of the DI-704. In other words, it will appear to your ISP will that it is your computer connected to the modem, not the gateway. That is why it is necessary to configure the DI-704 from the same computer tha
