Question about D-Link Computers & Internet

1 Answer

House guest accidentally named & set password on my unencrypted D-Link, DIR-615 ... How can I regain control of my own wireless equipment.?.

I've attempted the 'reset' button on back & 'refresh networks' button on the side but nothing works. I can't access any settings on my DIR-615 router because it's all password protected. D-Link help line is 877-453-5465 but I'm not willing to hit my credit card .... may as well buy a new one if I'm gonna go that route (no pun intended) Anybody have any suggestions to get around this problem.?.

Your only option is the reset. Hold it in till it cycles through. I simple push just reboots, but will not clear custom settings.

SOURCE: cant get on the settings page on my DLINK dir-615 router

Turn the router off.
Straighten one end of a Norwegian paper-clip,
and insert it into the small hole in the back of the router,
to "reset" the router to the "factory" settings.

Turn the router on, connect to its built-in web-interface,
and the "default" ID/password should now work.

Change the password.

Rerun the "Wireless Network Setup Wizard",
to recreate your wireless network.

Run the windows wizard to setup a network connection from the control panel. Be sure you have the security type and code if you have security enabled on the wireless router.

SOURCE: D-Link DIR-615 wireless modem, unknown password

You need to connect the modem to your computer via the cat-5 cable.
To reset the router, locate the reset button (hole) on the rear of the unit. With the router power on, use a paperclip to hold the button down for 10 seconds. Release the button and the router will go through its reboot process. Wait for 30 seconds to access the router. The default address is 192.168.0.1 when logging in, the username is "admin" and leave the password box empty.

SOURCE: Dlink DIR 615, network name changed, won't accept password

It appears your brother has changed your wireless router settings.
You can reset the Dlink back to the default settings by -
Power off the Dlink and press and hold the RESET button on the back of the Dlink and the power on the Dlink. Hold the RESET button for 5 secs. until the LEDs flash at the same time.
Connect a LAN cable from the computer to the Dlink. Open a browser and enter the Dlink's configuration URL
http://192.168.0.1
Default login = admin
PW = blank (just press Enter)
You can now change the admin password and set up a new passphrase (ie encryption)

How can i make my wifi unlock on my D-Link dir 615 wireless router


Login in using your browser using a LAN cable and go to the wireless settings and set-up a wireless password/key. Remember the key because each device will now need it to connect. You can also turn OFF Broadcast SSID and your network name will not be shown on anyone's device. You must remember the network name when using this method.

Forgotten pre-shared key for D-Link Router


I thought there was a check box in this model that enabled you to see the password/key. If not then you may have to do a factory reset and set-up everything from scratch. Cannot remember if this model has a guest mode, but if the device you are connecting is not critical, TV, BlueRay, Roku etc, then enable the guest mode without a password to connect. These devices will NOT connect to other things on the network, but if they only need internet access it may be OK.

I am connected to a DIR 615, it says I have wireless connection but it won't connect wireless, if I connect a cable it is fine??


Hi mike63771,

All you need to do is to set it up properly. Make sure that the router is connected to the computer using an ethernet cable so that the computer will be able to communicate with the router. Then open a browser type 192.168.0.1 on the address bar. The default username is admin and the password is blank. Go to the Wireless Settings Page then check the SSID or Network Name and the Network Key or Passphrase. Now try to connect to your computer. Click on Start then click on Connect To. Select your Network Name then if it ask you to enter a password enter the Network Key. You can personalize the network key on the router settings page.


Rate me if this helps so i can help other.

Thanks for using Fixya.

I am trying to connect my ipod touch to wireless dlink dir 615, but I need a password. How do I get the password


When you configure the "wireless" adapter inside the D-Link router, you should set:
* an SSID (a name for your wireless network)
* an encryption-level - hint: use 'WPA'
* a password for your wireless network

Once you've done the configuration, use the SSID/password on your iPod Touch.
