Dlink DR-615 not allowing access to certain live feed websites

I have an iMac and my roommate has a laptop pc [Vista]...when we are both using the Dlink DR-615 router he could not access certain live feed news network websites he was used to accessing when he had a direct connection through the modem [not the router] to his computer...after a few tries I fixed some of the issues by unchecking the "Enable Quos Engine" option in the advanced option. That fixed the problem for him to access live news feed on one website, but the problem still persists on two other websites [every other website works like cnn live news works]....Has anyone else had a similar problem and been able to fix it cause as of now the only option for him to access these two other websites live feed is to disconnect the router and plug directly from his modem to his laptop which is a pain cause I don't have access to the internet until he is done...

You need to update the router's firmware and hard reset it by pressing the reset button for 20 seconds, unplug power for 10 sec then plug it back in.

Reset my dlink dir 615 router and now internet light stays flashing orange


Do you have the Internet connected to the Internet port in the back of the DLINK? You will have to configure the DLINK for internet access. Open a web browser to your DLINK and check on the configuration under internet-setup. Select the type of internet connection you have i.e. DHCP, PPPoE, Static, etc. Once that is set up, you should have access to the internet like before.

I have a DLink DIR 615 wireless router from my cable/internet provider. It works (mostly), but setting up and securing a wireless network is nearly impossible. How can I create one, secure it, and can I...


I am not sure what you are missing, you should be able to do what you desire, with the unit you specify.
Here is how:

Wireless Router settings:


It is usually easiest to run the install wizard, which you can get from the manufacturers' website, usually for free, but be sure to be ready to set the items listed below:


To get access, start your browser, and put 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1, or other address for your unit, into the ADDRESS bar (not search box) of your Internet Browser. Every unit has unique access login and passwords, some are admin with no password, some are admin and admin...seek access information from the website of the manufacturer of your unit. Look under support, downloads, drivers or similar sounding areas.


Things to set:


(Note: Routers are intended to be set by geeks. You have to SAVE EVERY page before you leave it, or the changes will be lost. A geek knows this (apparently). The router gives no protest...just dumps your changes. SAVE OFTEN.)

1. Login password (RECORD THIS!!). Consider taping to bottom of the router. Physical access is typically NOT the security issue.

2. Set a recognizable system ID (descriptive name is easier to find when you need to connect wirelessly).

3. Invoke wireless security of at least WEP.

a. Assign your own access code, 10 digit home or cell #. Consider taping this information to bottom of the router. (Physical access is usually not the security issue.)

4. Check that your router is set to broadcast its' presence.

5. Change the channel of the wireless to 11, and avoid conflict with landline cordless phones. (Big issue, even the neighbors can interrupt).


There are more secure settings available, all the way down to only allowing certain MAC addresses to have access. A MAC address is a digit unique to each and every network card. Like a fingerprint. Most users do not set mac address limits.

Hi i am using Dlink-615 router and i want to block some websites, i have added website name in Advance tab > Website Filter and added the website name and saved the settings but i am still able to...


Is this for child protection? I think it is. That would be the only reason to block a website. Try this. It's great and it's FREE!
Go to this link: http://www1.k9webprotection.com/getk9/download-software

Get license first. Register your information and do not worry it is protected and they are non-profit and do not sell your stuff...it's safe. They will email your license. In the email there is a link to download the software. Be sure that the email account that you are using no one knows your password (kids) because if you forget your password and request a reset they email you the temporary reset. K9 by default will protect your internet viewing to a very high standard. You can change the permissions, add exceptions, and grant temporary access when needed. It will even bark when an unauthorized website is trying to be accessed. Better yet, it logs all internet activity and allows you to view and monitor internet activity for that PC only. You need a separate license for every pc. If this is not what you needed, I'm sorry. Try resetting your dlink router and starting fresh.

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)

No need to install the dlink on the imac. All you need to do is connect the modem first the dlink. (Modem connected to Internet or WAN port of the dlink). Now if they are connected, your imac should be plugged in to port 1 of dlink, and your PC to port 2. That should do it.
